Portrait sessions go beyond just taking photos! My goal is to make the whole photo process as seamless and straightforward as possible. I'm here to help with everything from location recommendations to wardrobe styling!

Click through below to see what to expect in regards to the planning process, the session details, and the delivery timeline.


A beautiful location never hurts when it comes to portraits! Not sure where you want to have your session? I have a list of tried-and-true photo locations that work well in any season. I'm also always happy to try any new locations you may have in mind!


I majored in textiles and apparel in college, and styling families and couples brings me true joy! I would love nothing more than to help you pick outfits that coordinate well together, flatter your personal shape and style, and will look timeless for years to come.

The SEssion

Bring your best smile and a sense of adventure as we create magic together! Throughout the session, I will lightly direct you to get the most beautiful lighting, the most flattering yet natural posing, and the most cohesive backdrops. Your resulting gallery will include the perfect mix of candid, lifestyle photos, as well as some more traditional, smiling-at-camera photos.


You are guaranteed to receive your photos (via a secure, password-protected online gallery) within one week (seven calendar days) of your session date, and 90% of the time, I deliver a few days early! No one likes waiting weeks for their photos. ;)


After your session, you will have the opportunity to buy prints and other printed products (e.g., canvases) directly through the online gallery. Printing and displaying your photos gives you the freedom to enjoy them anytime in your home, and not just on your screen!
