Common Questions


How much can I expect to invest?

My clients usually invest between 500-1200 for their portrait session.

Where should I have my photo session?

I can recommend a list of pretty locations depending on what basic idea/theme you like. Forests, beaches, fields, gardens, cities, ect. Just tell me what appeals to you and I will send you suggestions with images.

What should I wear to my session?

I photograph stylish girls, so make sure you are representing your best look in your photos. You get up to three outfit changes, so make sure to plan your look ahead of time. If you need help I will be more than happy to recommend ideas. Check out my Pinterest board of outfits that photograph well. I also recommend check to Blackwater in downtown San Luis Obispo. They have gorgeous clothes and the girls there can put together outfits that will help you look your best!

Should I book hair and makeup?

Yes! Great hair and makeup services can make you look and feel amazing on the day of your session. I can recommend a few stylists for you depending on what you need. My go to is Dani Cepeda at Heritage Salon in Arroyo grande.

I take deposits for sessions booked more than one month away. Please be prepared to give the remaining payment at the time of your session. I do not accept installments.

Depending on the collection, about 2-15 images.

Do you edit and retouch images?

How do I get my photos?

About a week after your session, I will email you a link to your preview online gallery. You then chose your favorite images and those images are retouched and sent to you in a new gallery.  This final gallery allows you share, favorite, and download your images right to your computer.

Can I purchase prints and albums?

Absolutely! Your online gallery will have print options that directly delivers right to your home. If you’d like an album I can custom design one for you!
