I know you have questions...

...hopefully I have some answers!

What kinds of sessions do you offer?  

I have packages for families, kids, newborns, seniors and weddings/events, but there are things that don't quite fit into these and I think "just because" is as good a reason as any to schedule a session!  

Where do we go?

We'll go wherever you’d like!  Wherever you're comfortable is where I want to be!  I'm located in Tacoma/Gig Harbor, but am always up for traveling to new places.  I am most often found at Point Defiance in Tacoma or Sehmel Homestead Park in Gig Harbor.  Downtown in either place always makes for a great photo walk and Bella Bella Park on Fox Island is a recent discovery and new favorite.

Any specific time?

I like to shoot for "golden hour" - early morning or late afternoon/evening.  This ensures we get the best light possible to really make you glow.

Is there a travel fee?

Yes, for anything outside of the greater South Puget Sound area (50 miles from Tacoma) there will be a travel fee.

I'm scared.

I promise you that we will have fun!  We'll be talking and laughing and you won't even realize that I'm taking pictures.  Before you know it, I'll have run out of bad jokes and we'll be done!

What do I wear?!

I really only have one main rule - be comfortable!  I don't suggest putting everyone in matching outfits, but complementary colors and patterns will look adorable!  I definitely recommend Pinterest for outfit inspiration!

Ok, that wasn't that bad.  But can I see all the photos you took?

I take a lot of pictures.  And I really mean a lot when I say that.  Family sessions can end up with up to 500 pictures.  Part of what I do during the week after our session is to go through and take out the ones where someone smiled a little funny, another person blinked, or I just didn't have you all framed just right.  I make sure that what you see is the best of the best and that they look their best by the time you do.  

How long do I have to wait before I can have these awesome pictures?

It takes about one month to receive the download link for your gallery. But keep an eye on instagram and facebook for sneak peeks as I go!  

Ok, these are amazing!  Can I share them?!

Absolutely!  My only request is that you give me credit in the caption and/or tag my business page.  One last note for Instagram - please don’t add any filters.  

I'm curious...Nikon or Canon?

Canon all the way.  I started with teensy little purple Kodak, learned manual on an ancient Fuji with a bum film advance lever, and finally figured out the mysteries of life with a Canon and haven't looked back since.  (Sorry, can't spill...epiphanies are subjective) 

Let's do this.  What's next?
