When Do Schedule Your Sessions?
Outdoor sessions are typically scheduled for the mornings or late afternoon - we're looking to capture beautiful, soft light - middle of the day sun is just too harsh. We're in Southern California, after all!
We want that beautiful, sunny glow!
Depending on your sessions package our shoot maybe scheduled to start 1-3 hours before sunset. The exact time will vary depending on the season we're in. I like to meet my clients approx 30 mins before shoot time.
Shoots are scheduled for Mondays and Wednesdays.
Select weekends are available on a first come, first served basis.
What Type of Sessions Do You Offer?
I enjoy capturing the moments you want remembered for generations to come, and focus primarily on High School Seniors
and Family Lifestyle photography.
I do shoot some events like first birthday/cake smash or baby showers.
If you're looking for a photographer for an event outside of my speciality,
I'd be happy to refer you to a local photographer whom I know and trust.
How Do I Know What to Wear?
Chances are you have an idea of what you want your images to look like,
but you’re not sure how to achieve it? No worries, I am here to help!
I send each of my clients a “What to Wear Guide” which will help
you choose the perfect wardrobe for your shoot.
I also include local boutique suggestions for fun shopping!
I'm Not a Model...How Will I Know
How to Pose?
You don’t have to be a model…it’s my job to know how to take any pose
and make it look very natural and effortless so that
your lines look beautiful and you look relaxed.
I don’t ever want you to look like you’re trying too hard.
By the end of our time together, you’re going to feel confident
and comfortable, and have the time of your life!
Do You Provide Hair & Makeup?
While my packages do not include hair and makeup, I highly recommend it! We offer hair & makeup add on's, and I have a list of hair and makeup artists that we love and fully recommend.
A full understanding of the right camera-ready makeup products and application is essential for beautiful, straight out of camera images. The hair and makeup artists I work with specialize in photography makeup application, which is different than everyday makeup. Plus, who doesn’t want to be pampered?!?! Trust me, you are still going to look like YOU.
However, some girls prefer to do their own makeup, and that’s ok too! Whichever option you choose, I guarantee you you’re going to look stunning!
What is the Investment?
I realize that every client is unique and that life is busy, which is why we offer ALL-INCLUSIVE packages for both High School Seniors
and Family Lifestyle Portraits!
I want you to simplify, and maximize, your portrait experience. I want you spending less time making decisions, and more time loving the process!
With our All-Inclusive packages, you’ll walk away with our top of the line, and most popular, product offerings, and all of your incredible portraits. Trust me, our worry free collections are loaded with all the bells and whistles that you will absolutely love!
Our All-Inclusive packages start at $500. A non-refundable session retainer of $200 is due at booking, with the remaining balance due
24 hours prior to your shoot.
How Can I Book a Session With You?
Best advice I can give is to book early! During the busy season (late spring - late fall) sessions tend to book up fast - even 3 months out.
Please fill out the form on my CONTACT ME page.
Once I receive your initial communication I will send you the KMP session guide, which has all of the information and details for your session experience. Once you’re ready to book,
I will send you the link to our online booking calendar.
*Please note that your non-refundable session retainer
is due at the time of booking.
