I understand there’s quite a bit of information here, but it’s essential for you to know what you can expect from our collaboration.
Where are you based?
I am based in North Florida, Jacksonville, and my photo sessions take place in various locations across Duval County, St. Johns County, and St. Augustine.
Do I primarily use natural light or lighting equipment for my photography?
I primarily specialize in natural light photography, as I believe it offers a beautiful and authentic look to the images. However, I also have some flashes that I use in low-light situations when needed. Overall, my preference is always to capture the magic of natural light whenever possible.
Do I need to put down a deposit?
Absolutely! To secure your session, a 30% nonrefundable retainer fee is required, which will be applied to your package cost. The remaining balance is due on the day of the shoot. While the retainer fee is nonrefundable, you can reschedule your session for another date if needed. Just let me know in advance, and we can find a suitable alternative date for your photo shoot.
How will you deliver the images?
Once your images are ready, I will provide you with an online gallery where you can easily download them to your phone or computer. You have the option to download them individually or all at once. Sharing the gallery with your loved ones is a breeze—just send them the link, and they can access the photos. Additionally, you can share a PIN for them to download their favorite images directly. It’s a seamless and convenient process!
Do you offer mini sessions?
While I occasionally offer mini-sessions on special holidays, they are not a regular part of my services.
As a lifestyle photographer and visual storyteller, I believe in capturing authentic and genuine moments that require more time and connection with my clients. Mini sessions, typically lasting 20-30 minutes, don’t align with my artistic style, as I prefer to get to know my clients during longer sessions. If I do offer any mini-sessions, they would be limited to four times a year on special occasions.

Will you make sure I'm happy with my choice?
My approach is entirely client-centered, which may not sound traditional for an artist, but it’s at the heart of my work.
My purpose is to capture images that celebrate the beauty and authenticity of this extraordinary journey we call LIFE. I am passionate about showcasing the real and wonderful moments that make life messy, brilliant, and truly special.
What's the turnaround time for receiving my images?
Your stunning images will be delivered within 1-2 weeks after your session date. You’ll have access to a private online gallery, where you can download, share, and print them as you please. It’s all about making your experience as convenient and enjoyable as possible.
When are you available for appointments?
Available seven days a week, I offer a streamlined online booking platform for all types of sessions that I work with. With just a few clicks, you can secure your desired date and time, sign the contract, and even choose additional options. It’s quick, easy, and hassle-free, allowing you to focus on the excitement of your upcoming session.
What type of camera/equipment do you use?
I use the Sony A7III R, a high-performance full-frame mirrorless camera known for its excellence in both still photography and video recording. This camera can shoot 4K video at up to 30 frames per second and 1080p video at up to 120 frames per second, making it great for slow-motion footage. My go-to lens is the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM, perfect for various photography styles, including landscape, portrait, and product photography.
In addition, I incorporate professional lighting equipment, a product photography box, and sound recording gear into my work. These tools can be brought on-site to ensure top-notch quality for your projects.
Can you tell I'm a bit nervous?
I understand that having a session may not be an everyday experience for you, but it’s something I do regularly, and I assure you, I’ll make it a calming and enjoyable process. In fact, one of the most common things I hear after a session is, “You know what, that was a lot of fun!”
I'm ready to book! What's your booking process and how do I schedule a session with you?
Yay, I’m so happy to hear you’d like to book a session with me! If you’re ready to book, please visit my BOOKING LINK. The booking link will allow you to see my availability, pick a date, and complete your online booking. Please note that you’ll be required to pay a non-refundable retainer payment and sign a contract to reserve your date, with the flexibility to reschedule if needed.
If you have specific requirements or prefer a custom session, feel free to submit a custom session inquiry. Additionally, if you have any questions or need guidance, don’t hesitate to reach out for a consultation. After you’ve booked your session, you will receive a client prep guide from me to help you prepare for your session.
Can’t wait to capture some amazing moments together!
What are the options for rescheduling or canceling a session if needed?
I always strive to accommodate my clients, and in most cases, we can reschedule the session if necessary.
How long will my photos be saved after the session?
Standard storage time is 3 months. However, upon request, I can keep your materials for up to 10 years. Just let me know if you need this option!
How do we handle situations with bad weather if the photoshoot is planned outdoors?
Florida weather is famously unpredictable, and unfortunately, we can’t change that. But sometimes, I manage to come up with alternatives, such as finding safe indoor locations or waiting out the weather for a while. Either way, I’ll always stay in touch with you and keep a close eye on the weather conditions.
