What to Expect
I’m so honored that you are considering me to tell your story. I find beauty in simplicity, emotion, connection, and beautiful light. I believe that every mama has a wonderful story to be told, and my desire is to create enduring portraits that are not only beautiful, but emotionally moving as well. My images are filled with connections, movement, and moments unique to your own story.
A Storytelling session with me is wholly focused on taking the time to slow down and really appreciate long embraces, simple details, the art of discovery, and subtleties of affection. During our session we intentionally make time to say the words we don’t always stop to say that can bring out the best and brightest in those we love. We make time to love on your babies, be fully present, and soak up these moments that are way to short. These sessions are not your typical portrait session. They are real, raw, and capture the moments versus the poses. If you are looking for a traditional sit and smile for the camera, Christmas card photo, or “say cheese” portraits, then I am not the photographer for you.
Maternity & newborn sessions are best booked in the second trimester. I like to photograph maternity between weeks 28-34 and new babies between 5-14 days old.
After you have completed the contact form you will receive a welcome email. Once you have decided that I am the photographer for you I will send you my available dates. You will choose your preferred date, sign your portrait contract, and pay your retainer fee. Once this process is complete, we will set up a time for a phone or Zoom call consultation to go over the details and your vision for your session.
Absolutely! Styling can really make your session more special. I will walk you through each step of the styling process with you. I offer the experience of a client closet for my clients too! I have carefully curated a closet of beautiful hand-picked and custom-made clothing options for mamas and their babies. My client closet is part of my client experience and free for those who choose to book a session with me.
Yes! I would be thrilled to come to you or meet you at an amazing destination! I love to travel and would just love to have an adventure with your family. Travel fees such as flight, vehicle rental, and hotel/lodging are additional. These costs may be divided if more than one session is booked.
You will receive your beautifully hand painted images via online gallery about 4-6 weeks after your session. You will be able to download your images and print release form your online gallery. I do not not release copyrights or unedited images from your session.
If you have been in Oklahoma long you know we have the CRAZIEST weather here! Unless it is pouring rain or tornadic activity, we will have our session as scheduled. I do not reschedule because it is cloudy. Sometimes the clouds give a totally different feel to the session.
