WHAT TYPE OF PHOTOGRAPHY DO YOU OFFER?
I am specializes in photographing couples, engagement, maternity, and weddings. I live in Bethalto, Illinois, but most of my sessions take place in Edwardsville, Alton, Highland and the St. Louis area! I am the type of photographer who will rarely have you looking and smiling at the camera, but rather just interacting together and creating moments between those being photographed. Of course, we will get those traditional poses, too! I love capturing playfulness and personalities in your photos!
WHERE WILL MY SESSION TAKE PLACE?
We will work together to find the perfect location for your session! Rather it be in the middle of a field, in a forest, in a park, on a farm, downtown or even in your home or in your own back yard! I also have several go-to spots, so once we chat and find out what you're looking for, I'd be happy to recommend some places!
HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION BE?
Full Sessions typically last an hour, Mini sessions are 20 minutes. These sessions are all about letting your story unfold! I like to schedule my sessions within the last hour or so before sunset, but if that doesn't work for you, I am flexible! Most of my sessions you will just find us all playing, talking and taking photos until the sun goes down.
WHAT WILL MY SESSION BE LIKE?
I try to make my entire session experience as effortless on your part as possible, from the time you first send a message my way, choosing a location, and throughout your session. Just be prepared to come, cuddle, play, run, laugh, tickle, kiss, and I will be there to capture the magic that unfolds.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY SESSION?
I am here from the very beginning to help you plan your perfect session, and this includes wardrobe. Don't hesitate to send a message my way asking for advice. Feel free to message me with photos of any ideas you may have. Stay away from words and symbols on clothing (small logos are ok!). The colors that look the best with my editing style are Earth Tones and Neutral Tones - here are some examples of what colors work well together!

HOW SOON SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY SESSION?
Anytime is great, but I recommend on planning and booking at least a month in advance. This gives us plenty of time to plan details for your session!
WHEN WILL MY GALLERY BE DELIVERED?
Galleries will be delivered within about 2 weeks via digital download. Wedding galleries take about 8 weeks!
