You've made it to session day! As you approach your session, keep in mind these 2 things:



If possible, I ask that you give me a 48 hour notice - I know that this is not always possible. I will do my best to get your session rescheduled in a timely manner

05. What happens if we are sick?

Typically around 2 weeks. I do my best to get your photos to you as soon as possible - I know how exciting it is to see that gallery email land in your inbox! 


I suggest wearing clothes that you are comfortable in and that represent who you are. Outfits should always coordinate, but do NOT need to be matchy matchy. Take a peek at my style guide for for inspo!

03. what should We wear?

I do my best to keep my eye on the weather and will typically decide to reschedule if there is more than a 50% chance of rain on the day of your session. We will then work together to figure out a new date & time. 

02. What happens if the weather does not cooperate?

I am a natural light photographer - 95% of my sessions are done outdoors (with the exception of in-home newborn sessions). I love capturing photos that show off real, authentic personalities & connections. 

01. How would you describe your photography style?
