it is very possible you have a million questions and that is quite all right.
So if I sent you this page it is because you may be interested in us doing a session together. So let me walk you through what that may look like. Not everyone has booked a photographer before and it can seem over whelming.
I will send you a quick questionnaire to help me get to know you and what you envision for your session. We'll talk about outfit, ideas, poses, locations, etc. I am always open to meeting beforehand to break the ice. I would love to treat you to coffee/tea to hear all about what shenanigans you and your friends get into.
session day //
Most important to remember during your shoot is to be YOURSELF! This day is all about you and I'm not here to make you do things you don't do naturally. Don't fret! I'm not going to throw a camera in you face and expect you to know how to pose or act. I like to take it slow and talk. Trust me, you will relax and start having fun once I start cracking my lame jokes. You’ll find I am patient and flexible to keep our pace flowing smoothly.
gallery reveal //
Completion of images depends on the type of session, but my typically turn around is about 4 weeks. Once your images are ready, you will receive your pictures through email with a link to a personalized online gallery from which you can download the files straight to your computer. after viewing your gallery we will then talk about what portraits you will use for your prints, invitations, or books included in your session.
in case you have a million more questions
what if i decide i want invitations after all?
No worries! You can add on invitations after our session.
do you travel?
yes yes yes! I have traveled to 11 countries and all 50 states. I have a passport and will come to you!
what is your travel fee?
That will depend and will be discussed prior to booking. I do charge a small fee to cover my travel expenses for trips traveling outside of my general area (NW Arkansas) that require driving long distances or flying. Please contact me to learn more.
*Travel fee may be waved if there are other sessions in area of our scheduled shoot. In that case the travel deposit will be applied as session credit.
do you require a deposit?
Only for out of town sessions and weddings.
I will obsessively check the weather and if it is looking bad we will reschedule. I can work in any weather but if you are looking for warm sunset pictures with your horse and there is a tornado ripping across the back field, probably going to reschedule.
how do i pay for my session?
Acceptable payment methods are cash, check, card, or Paypal. Taxes may apply. Payment plans are available upon request.
how long until i receive my pictures?
Typically turn around is about 4 weeks. If you are ordering invitations or a print, it can take up to 10 days after you have made your order. If you need your images rushed for a project, I have a small fee for that.
can i print my pictures?
Your images are not permitted to be printed except through my professional printing labs to achieve the highest quality.
if i want more digital images than were included in my package?
No problem! Each digital image is $20 and if you decide you want to take the whole lot it’s $200.
can i swap items in your package?
If the item is of equal value. I can send you a product list.
can i bring my mom or a friend?
Absolutely! If you feel like you will be comfortable with them around then please do.
can i post my pictures on Social Media?
Yes of course you can! Credit is preferred but not required.

Unfortunately not at this time. I will send you some recommendations though!
