the Process
how it all works

BOOKING

We schedule a time, date, and location for your session. I send over the contract. Full galleries may be purchased in advance. All of the paperwork is electronic and lives in your client portal.

SHOOTING

The best lighting for outdoor shoots is later in the afternoon, within 2 hours of sunset. And if you have any questions about wardrobe, props, and so forth, I’m happy to help!

EDITING

Once the session is over, I edit all of the images and send you a gallery link. All of your final selects and/or full galleries get a second pass, which includes fine-tuning and more detailed retouching.

PROOFING

Choose your favorites. If you originally booked a package with a set image limit, you have the option to upgrade your collection from right within the gallery. Full gallery options bypass this step.

PAYMENT

For galleries with set image limits. Once you’ve finalized your selection, I’ll send over the invoice and get to work on finishing your images.

DELIVERY

As soon as everything’s complete, you’ll receive a big beautiful gallery with all of your high res photos.

We don’t see things as they are; we see them as we are.

Frequently asked questions

Maternity, children & family, special occasions & milestones, boudoir & glam, professional & headshot (both commercial & theatrical), and probably some others not listed here.

I just love photographing people & personalities!

Many of my techniques are derived from the darkroom: dodging, burning, and color adjustments. I balance the highlights & shadows, even out the tones & gradations, and accentuate the overall color & contrast.

As for any actual retouching, I’m all about clean and flattering.

Most certainly. I always include both so that you have the best of both worlds.

This one’s tough to estimate since every single shoot is unique, but typically it’s at least 40.

Regardless of the exact number, I assure you that I will give you a wide range with plenty of options!

Usually about 2 weeks.

Yes, the gallery is loaded with all of the high res files. All of your final selects can be downloaded and can be shared and/or printed however you’d like.

Yep, you can either order prints right from your gallery link or you can order them through me directly. Everything is produced with archival ink on archival paper and with immense attention to detail.

You can read more about everything here.

Yes, just let me know what you have in mind. We have so many options in this fair city of ours!

Absolutely! Let’s chat and we can figure out the details.

Yes!

Yes! This is often preferred for teams and/or businesses. My entire setup is mobile; I just need at least 10×10 feet.

I have a cute little condo in the San Fernando Valley that doubles as my studio. I also have a list of spaces that we can rent if you’re looking for a more dynamic location.

Some surprises are wonderful, but not when it comes to something that you didn’t think you had to pay for in the first place.

Unless you want to include prints, albums, or other à la carte items, there are no extra fees or hidden costs.

Cash, check, credit card, PayPal, and Zelle.

Unfortunately, I unable to accept bitcoin or livestock at this time.
