What kind of sessions do you offer?
I shoot senior and dance portrait sessions that are uniquely created to fit the personal style and personality of each of my wonderful clients. Everything from location to the beauty squad to your choice of props such as floral crowns, custom cakes for sweet 16 shoots, mementos or keepsakes you want included in the shoot and more is chosen piece by piece by us as a team. What sets my photography apart from other portrait photographer is my attention to every detail, my background as a dancer, wardrobe stylist, artistic director and model coach. I am able to not only connect with the subject, but I am able to capture stunningly beautiful and unique moments on camera that will last a lifetime.
Where are you located?
The Hills, Austin, Texas. I live in the Bee Cave Area but love to shoot all around Austin. Bee Cave, Spicewood, Dripping Springs, and Lakeway have some of my absolute favorite locations. We are so lucky to call such a beautiful and lush place home.
What time of day will my senior's shoot be?
It is best lighting-wise for me to schedule your shoot 2 hours before the sun sets or 2 hours after it rises. I factor in 1.5 hours for hair and makeup, plus a bit for wardrobe changes and prep, then travel depends on the location of your shoot. It can be 5 minutes or it can be 30. For example, if we want to shoot at 3:45 PM in the Fall and Winter months, we will typically start hair and makeup around 1:30 PM, the shoot from 3:45-5:45 PM. All of this will be thoughtfully planned out in our initial consult. I know that many seniors and dancers have busy weeks so I always do whatever I can to accommodate them and those schedule restraints. We will shoot on early release days, or light school and activity days where a few things can be missed for this special occasion and I also keep a few weekend spots open each month.
How many photos will I receive in my package?
That depends on the Collection that you choose. Oak has 20 and Cedar has 30 edited digital images. There are print and product packages that add on more digitals and those are very popular. Typically my clients wish to have between 30-70 digital images. I shoot hundreds of images per session, often times 600+, then curate them down to the absolute best and most beautiful gallery for you.
What is your turn around time?
Galleries are complete and order sessions are usually scheduled between 2-3 weeks from the time of your portrait session. This can vary due to different seasons and holidays, but I will always be in communication with you. Rush options are available upon request.
