questions + answers


do you provide the wardrobe?

I have a small studio wardrobe however, each person that I photograph is unique which means each photoshoot will be unique too! Together, you and I will design a shoot concept that flatters you and from there, we will figure out which items you need to bring.

Portland, Oregon!

do you travel?

Sure do! Get in touch and we can talk about it.

i am feeling a bit self-conscious…

It’s ok! Lighting and posing is everything. I am careful and attentive and I create flattering light for all shapes, sizes and ages. You’re going to look freakin’ fantastic!

will i get digital images?

Yes! For every image you purchase, you receive it in print and digital form. Once you receive your digital images, please keep in mind that there are no exchanges and no refunds.

what is the cost of the shoot?

Shoots start at $300 (session fee). Images start at $275 each. Collections start at $1,500. We will go over all of this during our consultation. No surprises.

do you accept credit cards? offer payment plans?

I do! These images are an investment and I understand if you’re not able to pay for it all at once. Please keep in mind, Images are given to you only after final payment has been received. Please inquire about payment plans during your consultation.

why do you sell prints?

Having images printed is not really the norm these days and it makes me sad! Think back…floppy discs, CD’s, USB drives…technology changes so quickly and I believe it’s important to have images printed so you can hold them, frame them and maybe even give them to someone if you feel like it!

do you deliver every image you shoot?

I do not. I spend hours sorting through and selecting only the best images from your shoot. I eliminate underexposed shots, overexposed shots, out of focus shots, closed eye shots! You get it. I do not share or give unedited images.

can i take photos with my cell phone during the shoot?

I kindly ask that you do not. It interferes with your shoot time and is very distracting! Before and after the shoot? Heck yes! I love getting tagged on social media!

do you photoshop my images?

Yes, but with discretion! High-end retouching is used to enhance your images, not distort them. I want you to look like you. If you prefer a heavier edit, let me know and we can talk about it.

is there a price difference between your sessions?

All genres are treated equally and priced the same. Professional hair and makeup is complimentary and on set for every shoot. There will be an additional fee for each additional person on set who receives hair and makeup services. A travel fee will apply depending on the location of the shoot.
