Frequently asked questions

Where are you currently based out of?

I live in Howe Texas…. A tiny little town in North Texas, so my main area I shoot and work in is Mckinney! I do fly to the Central Coast of California (San Luis Obispo/Paso Robles) quite a bit since I have family there and I do photograph weddings and sessions there!

How long does it take to get my photos back?

This is by far the most popular question I get! I wish I was able to sit down and edit a full gallery the day after a session. With the amazing growth over the past couple of years session can take 1-3 weeks for full edited galleries. I say 1-3 weeks because during my slower months I can crank out the sessions faster then when I am booked 5 out of the 7 days of the week during the crazy months! (Oct/Nove/April/May). However you will receive 5-8 preview photos 1-2 days after your session :) For WEDDINGS this is a whole different ball game. Since there is a way higher number of photos to be culled/edited/delivered it takes slightly longer to perfect every image. Full wedding galleries are delivered 4-7 weeks after the wedding. You will also receive a sneak peek gallery of 100 images 1-2 weeks after your wedding.

What is included in your packages?

I don’t have any separate fees/sitting fees/print minimum/etc. Everything you see listed is what comes with the session. You will receive your digital images via Pass Plus, where you will be able to download them as High-resolution and web-size. At the bottom of the gallery you have the option to print through me but your not obligated to!

What time will our session be?

My sessions start within the last two hours before sunset! I don’t offer sunrise sessions, unless at the Howe Homestead.

Should I bring props?

For Senior and engagement sessions props can be SO FUN to incorporate into the session! Popping champaign & smoke bombs can be sooooo fun!! I also love when clients bring their pups along! Ive even had a few Seniors bring their show heifers/pigs to the Howe location! Im just waiting for someone to bring their horse! :) However sometimes in a session less can be more! Like a simple cute floppy hat or a blanket to wrap up in can be the perfect prop!

How does payment work?

For Sessions, a 50% non-refundable deposit/initial payment is required upon booking to hold your date and the remainder is due on the day of your session. For weddings, a 30% non-refundable deposit/initial payment is required upon booking to hold your date and the remainder is due a week prior to your wedding date. For payments I accept quickbooks direct deposit or Venmo. No Credit cards or mailing of check/cash.

Do you offer mentor sessions?
