The Experience

Before The Shoot

When you make an inquiry, I will speak with a parent or guardian and discuss all the details. I will also ask you to fill out a short form with some information that helps me understand a bit more about you to make your shoot a success. We will choose a location and clothing that suits your style and personality. If you need some inspiration, ask for a location guide. Some people know exactly what they want ahead of time, and others need a little more guidance to figure things out. I will help you prepare down to the last detail, so there’s no stress for you on shoot day!

Now I will sound like your mom for a moment. Make sure you get good rest the day before your shoot and be sure to eat to fuel your body. There’s nothing worse than skipping meals!

During The Shoot

My goal is to capture the essence of who you are right now in this stage of life. Don’t be nervous about posing or not knowing what to do, that’s what I’m here for. I will shoot for up to 2 hours for a single location shoot (a little longer for more than one location). Don’t stress about clothing changes, I have a plan for everything. You’ll end up with a fabulous gallery of proofs with plenty of variety to choose from.

Relax and have fun!


I understand that teens sometimes have jobs or responsibilities outside of school. Please understand that swapping my schedule last minute will cause you to forfeit your session fee deposit and it will have to be paid again to secure another date. I adjust my schedule to accommodate your shoot and I appreciate if you extend me the same courtesy.

Illness and weather are the only two reasons I will accept a reschedule within 2 weeks of your shoot.

What if the weather is questionable? I’m fickle about the weather. I want your shoot day to be perfect. While weather is not within my control, I try to keep plenty of rain dates available if weather isn’t playing nice. While the stormy look may work in some situations, it would be devastating in others. TOGETHER, we will make a decision about whether to proceed or reschedule if such a situation arises.

After the Shoot

Within a week or so of your shoot, I will send you a gallery of online proofs. It will be your job to sort through the proofs and choose favorites and then we’ll find amazing ways to display your beautiful portraits.
