Senior Portraits

PORTRAITS ARE ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO PHOTOGRAPH, BUT MY PORTRAITS AREN’T FOR EVERYONE. IF YOU'VE SEEN MY WORK, YOU KNOW THAT I DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY AROUND HERE. I DON'T TAKE YOUR TYPICAL ‘SENIOR PHOTOS’. I PRIDE MYSELF ON CAPTURING YOU IN A WAY THAT IS NATURAL, EFFORTLESS, SPONTANEOUS, AND CREATIVE.

 

BECAUSE OF THIS BREAK FROM WHAT OTHERS EXPECT A SENIOR SHOOT TO LOOK LIKE, I ATTRACT THE RIGHT TYPE OF CLIENT. IF YOU’RE HERE TO HAVE PEOPLE LOOK TWICE AT YOUR PHOTOS, TO COLLABORATE TOGETHER ON YOUR SESION, TO FEEL COMFORTABLE AND GENUINE, WHILE STILL TAKING A STEP OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE, THEN I’M THE PHOTOGRAPHER FOR YOU. 

There's nothing I love more than finding people that just, get it, you know?

What to expect when you book with me

I VOW TO BE RESPONSIVE TO ALL EMAILS AND MESSAGES WITHIN MY BUSINESS HOURS (MONDAY-FRIDAY 9AM-6PM)

We'll chat a lot.

I’M ALWAYS DOWN TO GIVE ADVICE AND LEND A HAND ON SELECTING OUTFITS! WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER BEFORE OUR SHOOT DATE, THE DAY OF ALWAYS SEEMS TO GO SMOOTHER.

I'm here to help you!

WITHIN THE FIRST 10 MINUTES OF OUR SHOOT, I'VE LEARNED ENOUGH ABOUT YOUR MODELING STYLE / COMFORTABILITY IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA TO GAUGE WHAT POSES WOULD FIT YOUR BODY + RESONATE WITH YOU MOST. I'VE ALSO VENTURED AND EXPLORED LONG ENOUGH TO FIND SOME GREAT LOCATIONS FOR SHOOTS. I AM DEVOTED TO CONTINUE LOCATION SCOUTING AND CREATING A PERSONALIZED EXPERIENCE FOR EVERY SENIOR. FEEL FREE TO SHARE YOUR LOCATION IDEAS AS WELL! I ENCOURAGE IT, ACTUALLY!

I provide a custom experience.

AS NOT ONLY A PHOTOGRAPHER, BUT AS A FRIEND, I VALUE TRUST. HAVING FAITH WITHIN ME AS AN ARTIST HELPS ME TO CREATE WORK THAT BOTH YOU AND I CAN BE PROUD OF. THESE PHOTOS ARE YOURS. THEY REPRESENT YOU IN YOUR BEST LIGHT. BEING OPEN TO NEW IDEAS AND SUGGESTING YOUR OWN ALLOW ME TO BETTER CAPTURE WHO YOU ARE. 

Trust is key.

Questions you might be asking

How long do I get to wait for my full gallery?

MY RETURN TIME FOR HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS IS 2-3 WEEKS UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE. MY TURNAROUND TIME DEPENDS ON THE SEASON.

How do I receive my gallery?

I BELIEVE IN HAVING YOUR PHOTOS EASILY ACCESSIBLE. ONCE YOUR GALLERY IS READY, I WILL SENT YOU AN EMAIL TO A LINK THAT SAFELY HOUSES ALL OF YOUR IMAGES. YOU’LL RECEIVE A DOWNLOAD PIN WITHIN THE EMAIL THAT ALLOWS YOU TO SAVE ALL OF YOUR PHOTOS ON A COMPUTER OR MOBILE DEVICE. IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN SHARING THE GALLERY WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS, YOU CAN EASILY SHARE THE LINK OVER MESSAGING OR SOCIAL MEDIA!

Will you send us sneak peeks?

WITHIN 72 HOURS OF YOUR SESSION, YOU WILL RECEIVE A SNEAK PEEK GALLERY. THIS ALLOWS YOU TO HOLD ONTO SOME PHOTOS WHILE WAITING FOR YOUR FULL GALLERY. IT’S MY PRIDE TO SHARE IMAGES WITH YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. 

Where are you based out of?

I AM CURRENTLY BASED OUT OF KANSAS CITY. AFTER DECIDING SCHOOL WASN’T RIGHT FOR ME, I MOVED TO KANSAS CITY, A DECISION THAT I CAN’T IMAGINE MY LIFE WITHOUT. 

Do you travel for shoots?

I AM WILLING TO FOLLOW YOU ANYWHERE! OF COURSE, FOR ONLY A SMALL FEE. I CURRENTLY CHARGE $0.40/MILE FOR PHOTOSHOOTS NOT LOCATED IN AND AROUND THE KANSAS CITY AREA. YOU ARE ALSO MORE THAN WELCOME TO TRAVEL TO ME FOR OUR SESSION!

How do you take payment and when is it due?

I AM ABLE TO TAKE CASH, CHECK, OR SET UP A SECURE DEBIT OR CREDIT CARD PAYMENT FOR YOU. I CURRENTLY AM NOT ACCEPTING VENMO. YOUR DEPOSIT IS DUE THE DAY WE BOOK YOUR SHOOT, THE REST OF THE PAYMENT IS DUE ON THE DATE OF THE SESSION. 

What if there is bad weather? 

RAIN, WIND, THUNDERSTORMS, YOU NAME IT, ARE THINGS THAT MIGHT POSTPONE OUR SESSION TO A LATER DATE. YOUR DEPOSIT FEE WILL REMAIN INTACT PENDING THE RESCHEDULING DATE OF THE SESSION.
