I know there is a lot to read here, but this will help you know what you are getting into.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I am located in North Florida, Jacksonville and my sessions take place in several different locations within Duval County, St. Johns County, and St Augustine.
DO I SHOOT NATURAL LIGHT OR USE LIGHTING EQUIPMENT?
This is a great question! I am definitely natural light photographer! But I have some flashes that are used for instances where there is not much light provided. I do prefer the look of natural light over artificial light, so if given the choice I will always choose natural light.
IS THERE A DEPOSIT I NEED TO PUT DOWN?
Yes, reserving your session requires me to turn away other business on that day, I require a 50% nonrefundable retainer fee to reserve your session date. This is applied to your package cost, with the remainder of your balance must be paid on the day of shooting
HOW DO YOU SEND THE IMAGES?
I send the finished images through an online gallery, you can download them onto your phone/computer one at a time or as a whole. It’s also super easy to share the gallery with your family & friends, just send them the link and boom — it’s done! You can even share the PIN with them and let them download their own faves.
DO YOU OFFER MINI SESSIONS?
I am not offering mini-sessions on a regular basis.
As a lifestyle photographer and a visual storyteller, I feel that mini-sessions do not fit into my style as an artist. I like to get to know my clients during sessions, give them time to warm up to me, and capture their authentic and genuine selves and I feel like a 20-30 minute session does not allow enough time for that. If I do happen to offer any mini-sessions at all, they would be no more than four times a year on special holidays.
Not to miss the Minis from me possible future mini sessions, please follow me on Instagram
WILL YOU MAKE ME GLAD I PICKED YOU?
Everything I do is client-centered.
I know that might not sound very “artist-like, ” but it is the core of what I do. I exist to create images that show off the beauty of this wonderful, messy, brilliant thing called LIFE.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
Your images will be ready 2-3 weeks after your session date. They are displayed in a private online gallery where you will be able to download, share, and print them however you like.
WHEN DO YOU TAKE APPOINTMENTS?
7 days a week. I use an online platform to book any type of photo shoot that I offer in services. You can book in 5 minutes for a date, and time, sign a contract, and select additional options!
WHATE TYPE OF CAMERA/EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
What I’m shooting at

CAN YOU TELL I'M NERVOUS?
I realize you don’t do this every day. But I do, and I promise to calm you down. In fact, one of the things I hear most often after a session is: You know what, that was a lot of fun!
