Q: where are the sessions located?

Q: where are the sessions located?

A: Currently, all portrait sessions are located on-site and completely up to you. They can take place in the comfort of your home (lifestyle sessions are my fave), another location of your choosing, or I can suggest a few places based on my experience. Mini session locations will be at my choosing, and they will be posted in advance. Bonus: anyone who books a session with me gets a copy of my Prep Guide, which includes a listing of a TON of locations around the Acadiana area!

Q: what should i wear?

Q: WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

A: I will almost always recommend you wear something that makes you feel confident, but also something that you are comfortable wearing. Assuming you want a variety of poses, be sure to wear something that you would be comfortable standing, or sitting in. While I absolutely encourage creative and unique styles, here are some general tips for those who have no idea where to begin:

• Try and stick to solid-colored clothing. Prints and patterns can work if they're not too busy, otherwise they tend to distract from the face and focal points.
• For group portraits, choose a color palette of 2-4 colors with similar tones that go nicely together (hint: Pinterest is perfect for getting ideas)
• Keep your jewelry simple; just like patterns, too much jewelry can distract from your face, and very shiny jewelry can cause light flares.
• If you plan on changing outfits during your session, let me know so that I can bring my handy-dandy changing tent.

Added bonus - booked clients get access to my Style & Select account for easy styling and shopping!

Q: do you provide props? Can i bring my own? 

Q: DO YOU PROVIDE PROPS? CAN I BRING MY OWN? 

A: While I do not provide any props, I always encourage my clients to bring anything to any session that they want to incorporate. If it tells your story, I want to capture it. 

Q: what happens if it rains?

Q: what happens if it rains?

A: For rain, hurricanes, tornadoes, or any other unforeseeable circumstance, I try my best to accommodate to you. We can either move the location to somewhere indoors, or we can reschedule and your deposit gets applied to the new date. For elopements (if you're willing), we'll embrace most weather conditions, such as snow and rain - it adds to the adventure ;) 

Q: how long before i receive my gallery?

Q: HOW LONG BEFORE I RECEIVE MY GALLERY?

A: All session galleries have a 1 week turnaround guarantee, and all wedding and elopement day galleries have a 2 week turnaround (not including national holidays). I stick by this promise so much that if you don't receive your gallery in this timeframe, I take a percentage off of the applicable session fee and apply it as a discount off of future sessions. 

Q: how do i get my images?

Q: HOW DO I GET MY IMAGES?

A: They are provided through a private, online image gallery where you can download digitals, order prints, canvases, metals prints, albums, etc. For wedding days, I also provide a backup USB drive of all of your wedding day images. 

Q: how far in advance should i book? 

Q: HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK? 

A: For weddings, I book anywhere from 6 months-1.5 years out. This doesn't mean that I don't have availability before then. I take on a max of 3 weddings per month, so the sooner you can reserve your date, the better. 
For portrait sessions, I can usually get clients in within 1-2 months, and even sooner if your schedule can accommodate weekdays. Noting that my Spring and Fall/Winter seasons are the busiest, so I recommend booking at least 2 months in advance, if possible. 

Q: what does the session fee cover?

Q: WHAT DOES THE SESSION FEE COVER?

A: The session fee covers my time for the session, including travel, editing, exporting, and uploading hours. It also includes access to your private, password-protected online gallery, and a full print release for personal use. Depending on the package, some complimentary digitals or products may be included at no additional charge. A full breakdown of my package options can be found on my investments page

Q: can i purchase a session or package for someone else?

Q: CAN I PURCHASE A SESSION OR PACKAGE FOR SOMEONE ELSE?

A: Absolutely! Gift certificates make amazing gifts for Christmas, birthdays, weddings, and Mother's Day! They are available for purchase and can be sent to any friend or family member of your choosing. Click the link to place an order for a Gift Certificate

Q: HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE? wHAT DO YOU DO TO PROTECT OUR IMAGES?

Q: HOW MANY GUESTS CAN WE HAVE AT OUR ELOPEMENT?

A: I through this question in here because it's exactly what I would ask as a potential client. I've been a professional photographer since 2018, and (to-date), I've captured over 75 weddings and elopements. In order to protect your gallery, I always shoot with 2 SD cards (images are backed up twice) AND the final edited images are backed up in 3 places on my computer (cloud drive, hard drive, and gallery site). Trust me when I say that you and your memories are in good hands <3

Q: HOW DO TRAVEL FEES WORK?

Q: HOW DO TRAVEL FEES WORK?

A: In order to make things as easy as possible for you, all travel fees for elopements are included in the prices you see!  I will take care of all of my own flights, rental cars, lodging, and accommodations, etc.
For portrait sessions and traditional weddings, travel fees are included for locations within 40 miles of Lafayette, LA; anything outside of that range is charged at $2.00/mile round-trip.
