Frequently Asked Questions

How did you get started in photography and videography?

Photography has always been a passion of mine. I am that friend of yours that never leaves home without her camera! In college, I took photography courses and spent time learning the in’s and out’s of photographic and broadcast journalism. I sharpened my movie making skills by creating news stories in college and highlight films for local high school teams. About five years ago, I began taking photos for family and friends. After gaining a little experience, I decide to create a profession out of my passion and share my love for photography with others!

What is a Memory Movie?

I have always loved to make movies of my different adventures–my trip to Europe, vacation in Hawaii, and new home in Stuttgart. After welcoming my daughter into our lives this past April, I began making memory videos of her different milestones. How special to capture these memories not only with photos, but with videos too! A Memory Movie can capture any important milestone–a birthday, a new baby, or a grandparent’s legacy story.

What's your style?

I love photos that tell your story. My pictures and videos are photojournalistic. Your life and memories tell the story. During your session I try to capture your personality and who you are! I love getting creative with sessions and props, but I always try to capture those classic portrait shots as well.

Where do the sessions take place?

Newborn sessions are held in my studio. This gives us access to all the equipment, props, outfits, and more! Fresh 48 sessions are typically held at the hospital or the place of your new baby’s birth. Family and senior session take place at a location determined by us. We’ll work together to choose a theme and appropriate backdrop that suits your style. Sessions can be indoors or outdoors.

What should I wear? What should I bring?

When you hire me as your photographer, you’re also hiring my artistic vision and ideas. We’ll work together to think of a creative theme for your shoot, whether it be an engagement, newborn, or family session. We will go over ideas for outfit changes and props to bring along.

What happens after my session?

Your session premiere! This is my absolute FAVORITE part. About 2-3 weeks after your session, we’ll meet up at your home or my studio to unveil your gorgeous new photos. At the session premiere, you’ll have access to special collections and discount prices available that night only. I always try to post a few sneak peek photos to my Facebook or blog as well.

How do I book a session?

Each month I only take a limited amount of sessions, so it is best to book your session 4-8 weeks in advance.
