Can I bring a friend to my shoot?
ABSOLUTELY! Friends can be excellent in helping you with wardrobe and hair, throwing some fabric, and being your cheerleader during your day! Friends can get some fun BTS shots while we are working as well. Pro-Tip: NEVER go to a photographer who won’t let you bring a friend.
Can I take a picture of my photo on the monitor?
Sorry, no. This is my art, and a photo of my screen is not the best representation. I’m glad you are excited about what we’ve created, but I work fast to get you photos, and the wait is worth the results.
Do you only work with dancers?
I love creating with all sorts of folks who want a fantastic experience and creative environment. The needs of dancers shaped my approach to photography and how I crafted my studio. My focus on dance does define what I do (seniors & headshots) and some things I choose not to do (babies & weddings). Underlying it all is an attention to detail and the goal for your voice to shine through photography.
Have you been vaccinated for Covid-19?
Absolutely! I received two rounds of the Pfizer vaccine in February of 2021. Given the current state of things with the Delta Variant, I’ll be wearing a mask when I’m nearby as an added level of safety for you. I’d appreciate knowing if you’ve been vaccinated fully as well.
How long does it take for me to get my photos?
As a general rule, your photos will be finished in a week. We will pick a favorite image, and I’ll try to have that one ready for you the next day. Prints are sent to the lab after the digitals are delivered. For standard prints, the lab turnaround time is 1-2 days plus another 2-3 days of shipping from Iowa. Albums have a 2-3 week turnaround time and are shipped from NY. Your digitals will be sent to you in a ZIP file, and also loaded into a mini-website that you can anchor on your phone.
