Planning details

Once your session is officially booked we will discuss all the details! We will first chat about your vision for the shoot, then discuss what to wear and decide on the perfect location! I am with you 100% of the way and am more than happy to help you along with making these decisions! They can truly make the biggest difference when it comes to the overall aesthetic of your photos!

when getting the pictures back, we sat and cried, laughed, and squealed in shock! They were phenomenal! 

love letters from my clients

"We hired Maria for our 15 year anniversary shoot. We worked with her for months to make it exactly what we wanted. The shoot happened and it was better than we could have asked for. We laughed and had a blast. Then getting the pictures back, we sat and cried, laughed, and squealed in shock! They were phenomenal! Blown away is a understatement. We took forever to choose our favorites but we have and proudly have them displayed in our home! We can’t thank her enough for capturing our love!"

WE HAVE RECENTLY PHOTOGRAPHED WEDDINGS IN FLORIDA, LOUISIANA, AND NORTH CAROLINA.

Do You Include High Resolution Images

YES OF COURSE!

YOU WILL ALWAYS RECEIVE DIGITAL IMAGES VIA AN ONLINE DOWNLOADABLE GALLERY.

THE AMOUNT OF IMAGES DELIVERED WILL DEPEND ON THE PACKAGE YOU SELECT. WE LOVE DELIVERING OUR CLIENTS FILES QUICKLY AND EASILY VIA AND ONLINE GALLERY. YOU WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO PRINT, SHARE, AND DOWNLOAD YOUR IMAGES AS MUCH AS YOU WANT. 

What Is Your Shooting Style? 

WE DESCRIBE OUR STYLE AS TIMELESS, DREAMY, AND ROMANTIC. WE LOVE BEING BOTH INTERACTIVE AND DISCREET THROUGHOUT THE YOUR PORTRAIT SESSION.

 THERE WILL BE PARTS OF THE SESSION WHEN I WILL NEED TO BE IN CONTROL IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH EVERYTHING THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE, THERE WILL ALSO BE MOMENTS WHEN YOU SHOULDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT I'M THERE. WE TEACH OUR CLIENTS HOW TO POSE, MODEL AND INTERACT DURING THEIR SESSION SO THEY ARE NATURALS IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. 

Is 90 Minutes Enough Time For Our Session? 

YES! WE ARE OFTEN ASKED IF 1-2 HOURS IS ENOUGH TIME TO CAPTURE A FULL PORTRAIT SESSION, AND THE ANSWER IS YES! THIS ALLOWS US TIME IF WE NEED IT TO LET THE CHILDREN WARM UP AND GET ACQUAINTED, OR TAKE BREAKS IF WE NEED THEM. 


HOW DO WE BOOK YOU? 


FOR PORTRAIT SESSIONS WE REQUIRE A 50% NON REFUNDABLE RETAINER AND SIGNED CONTRACT AT THE TIME YOU BOOK. THE REMAINING AMOUNT IS DUE ON YOUR PORTRAIT SESSION DATE. WE TYPICALLY BOOK UP FOR PORTRAITS 3-6 MONTHS IN ADVANCE.


Do You Have Insurance? 


OH YOU-BETCHA! AND PLENTY OF IT. MANY VENUES, OR LOCATIONS WILL NOT LET ME OR ANY OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS IN THE DOOR OR ON PROPERTY WITHOUT IT.

How Long Will It Take To Receive My Images? 


TURN AROUND TIME FOR PORTRAITS IT IS USUALLY 4-6 WEEKS. WE TAKE OUR TIME WITH EACH INDIVIDUAL PHOTO. THIS PROCESS CAN VARY DEPENDING ON SEASON AND HOW BUSY WE ARE AT THE TIME. WE WILL DO OUR VERY BEST TO GET YOUR PHOTOS TO YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. 

Do You Provide Tip/Suggestions For What To Wear And Where To Shoot? 


ABSOLUTELY! I HAVE A WONDERFUL STUDIO GUIDE PACKED WITH INFORMATION TO PREPARE YOU FOR A SUCCESSFUL STRESS FREE SESSION. I AM ALSO ONLY A PHONE CALL OR TEXT AWAY SO PLEASE FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT TO ME REGARDING ATTIRE. I HAVE ALSO BEEN KNOWN TO GO SHOPPING WITH MY CLIENTS A FEW TIMES TO HELP THEM PICK OUT THE VERY BEST.
