I like whiskey, street tacos, and Michael Scott.
I met my HUSBAND by asking him if he was gonna use the rest of that Chick-Fil-A Sauce. It was totally smooth and love at first dip.
First order of business: Change this horrible picture of myself to one of me flexing while holding a street taco in one hand, and a shot of whiskey in the other.
If anyone knows what its like to feel awkward, its me. I once held a door open for a man, panicked when he looked at me confused, let go of the door and as it hit him in the face I declared "Whoops, I am a lady!" Sorry about that sir.
I have an unofficial slogan for my business:
"MAKING AWKWARD PEOPLE FEEL PRETTY SINCE 2009"
The first few photos at our session might feel a bit awkward but then you find your groove and it will all be okay after that! My sessions are laid-back and fun and I direct you into poses that feel natural and look amazing.
Located in Solano, California. Just twenty minutes from Napa!
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Where are you located?
I live in Solano County, California. I am ridiculously close to Napa, Sonoma, and San Francisco! I am also available for travel.
2. Where does the session take place?
I have a huge list of location options to choose from, whether you want a beach, a cliff, a field, all three in one spot! I choose places with variety so that one session has a lot of different landscapes. We typically hike, walk around a bit so I always suggest to pack some extra shoes if you ladies want to dress up your fancy feet!
3. How long does it take to receive our images?
Your proof gallery is posted 2-3 weeks after your session, and your finished image files are delivered 2 weeks after that (so the total turnaround time is 4 weeks).
4. What should we wear?
I have a visual board HERE.
I’ve also put together a complete session preparation guide for my clients that I send before every session. It includes information about clothes, links on where to buy them, hair/makeup, and other useful tips to help eliminate stress from your experience.
5. Help, I am so awkward and not photogenic!
DEEP BREATH. Believe it or not, pretty much EVERYONE tells me this before their session, and it never turns out to be true! I love coaching my clients through having their photos taken, and I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve to make you look fabulous! When you’re having a great time, you’ll look more beautiful than you thought was possible. Sometimes it might even feel like its not going well, but I assure you it is. I got you, I promise.
6. What do you do?
I have tried and tried to find a less cheesy way to say this, but I specialize in love. Couples are my jam, and I love elopements and weddings. I also however, am really great with families, KIDS LOVE ME. I have three of my own and I speak the language, I am also super silly and kids get a kick out of that. So while I specialize in couples, I love to photograph everything. Families, Maternity, Fitness, headshots I can do that for you.
6. I am ready to book, now what?
I can’t wait to work with you! Please send me a message here, and we’ll come up with a game plan for your session. After that, you’ll be able to sign your contract and submit your session deposit online. 50% is due upon booking to reserve your date, and the remainder is due on the day of your session.
I also ask new clients to fill out a short questionnaire, which helps me get to know you and your hopes/goals for the session. I will send this to you upon booking, along with my style guide.
