I love keeping things natural.


Natural light. Natural laughter. Natural editing.

I want to put you at ease.


Photographing people is more than just sticking a camera in someone’s face to tell a particular story. Making people feel comfortable and at ease is key to capturing authenticity. I strive to build connection with the people I photograph and bring out genuine expressions.

I will be your biggest cheerleader.


I'm great with kids and adults! I can turn my silly on and get smiles out of everyone 99% of the time. I will help guide you through our session with prompts and poses if you're feeling like a fish out of water (don't worry...most people feel that way when the camera comes out). However, I can bet you anything, I'll draw you out of your comfort zone and have you flashing that beautiful smile of yours in no time!

It's okay if your kids get emotional.


I know even just the thought of it probably stresses you out. But it won't bother me in the least! Kids can be wild cards (truthfully, adults can be too). But we can always take a minute for a few deep breaths and a snack mid-shoot. I will do my absolute best to get all the littles' attention and capture some sweet smiles with my silly antics and funny questions. But if your toddler decides to introduce Mr. Grumpypants to the shoot, don't let it stress you out. Relax and laugh it off, remembering it's just a season of life. :)

FAQ

Do we pick the location?

I usually pick out locations with which I’m familiar with the lighting, scenery, etc. However, if you have your heart set on a particular location, let me know, and I can work it in with enough advance planning! I have a list of location recommendations (with photos), if you’d like to see examples from around Chattanooga.

When will we receive our photos?

Turn around time differs for each shoot, depending on my work load at the time. Usually, you can expect your photos within 3 weeks.

How far in advance should we book?

The earlier, the better, especially for weekends! Entering parenthood this past year has been such a fun adventure but also limits my availability on certain days/in certain seasons. For example, if you are looking for a weekend session in the fall, keep in mind that is my absolute busiest season! So make sure to reach out a few months in advance to ensure a spot on my fall calendar. :)

Do you offer mini sessions?

I offer only a couple mini session dates each year, with discounted pricing and a smaller selection of photographs delivered. To get on my email list for important announcements & updates, fill out my contact form!

Policies


  • A 50% nonrefundable retainer fee is required to secure your date. If you choose to cancel and rebook, the retainer fee cannot be used towards another date. (This ensures I get fairly compensated for committing my time to you and turning down other potential projects or clients.)
  • Full payment is due before the start of your session. Cash, Check, or Venmo are the current payment options.
  • A contract must be signed and full payment must be made before you can receive any images.
  • If you are late for your session, the time on the end will not extend to make up for it. We will still end at the original time and there will be no price reduction. If I am late, I will most definitely compensate for my lateness by completing the original amount of time booked for.
  • If you (or family & friends) post your images online, please make sure to give me credit (tag or just mention my name). This is extremely helpful to my small business! :)
  • I do not share unedited or RAW photos.
  • Clients may not apply any filters or presets or make any additional edits to my images. I work hard to post-process each image with my particular editing style to ensure the consistency of my brand. Thank you for understanding!
  • Turn around time differs for each shoot, depending on my work load at the time. Usually, you can expect your photos within 3 weeks. If you need your images sooner, you can contact me to request an expedited delivery for an additional fee. I will try to work with your request if my schedule allows.
  • As of 2022, my Short & Sweet package is not eligible for weekend bookings. This package will only be available for Monday-Friday sessions. With most people’s work & school schedules, weekday sessions usually end up taking place at golden hour (just before sunset), which is an absolutely gorgeous time of day!
