The Process

Here’s How This Works

1. Happy Hour

We sit down over drinks in your favorite Atlanta bar, coffee shop, or restaurant or via Zoom & get to know each other. We discuss your vision for your photos, brainstorm creative direction, talk about how I can best serve your needs, and go over pricing information.

Portrait sessions (seniors included) start at $350, with most clients averaging $1,500. Headshots start at $250, with an average spend of $625. Cheers!

2. Contracts & Planning Process

I send you a contract with some obnoxious lawyer speak (sorry, gotta do it), and if all looks good, you sign it, and then pay a deposit to lock in your session.

Then we can start the real fun—planning! We talk about outfits and locations, timelines, specifics about your images, and any other details that will bring your story to life.

3. Strike A Pose

It’s photo time! Show up a few minutes early, bring a set of comfy shoes, maybe some creature comforts, and let the fun begin!

All The Little Details

4. Edits & Delivery Process

After the shoot, we’ll work together to choose the photos you really love and want to take home as gorgeous wall art pieces in traditional print, canvas, & metal, folio boxes with matted prints, and albums. 

Then, I work my editing magic: lighting, skin blemishes, stray hairs, squirrels doing the macarena, distracting leaves, the works. This can take up to 2 weeks to complete. Once completed, your images are sent to the lab to be printed and delivered, and the digital files are placed in an online gallery for you to download!
