Completely contingent on my schedule, I've decided to open my studio for a small number of portrait bookings. These sessions will be announced via social media and on a mailing list as they come available. Each session will be 45min in duration with approximately half of the time spent capturing images. I capture all of my studio images while tethered to a computer so we will have instant visual feedback during the shoot and selects can be decided upon before the end of our session.
What Do You Get?
After our sessions I'll take your selected images and retouch them myself based on our discussion during the process of selecting your favorites. Usually within a week you'll receive a link and password to a gallery to download your files. I'll provide a high and low resolution file for each image that you can use for prints and web(social media). Please note these images are not for commercial use unless we discuss this option separately.
I Don't See Any Available Dates?
When you select your appointment type you will see available times. If you don't see time slots that are convenient for you please scroll down and join the mailing list below and you'll be the first to know when I announce more session dates! Future dates will be based on my availability between commercial jobs.
Need to Cancel a Session?
Let's face it, things can happen and sometimes we can't make appointments. If this is the case and you know in advance please try to give me at least 24 hours advance notice so I can adjust my schedule and can possibly let others know that a spot has opened up.

What Ages Are These Shoots For? Children?
Since this is a commercial studio with a lot of equipment and cables around I am setting an age limit of at least seven years old so we can completely focus on making great imagery!
What to Wear?
This is your portrait so you will want to wear something that represents you and you're comfortable in. My recommendation would be to keep it simple and not to wear clothing with strong patterns or wording. That being said I am allowing a 45min block of time so there could possibly be time to change outfits if you feel necessary or just want an extra element of variety.
Do You Provide Hair and Makeup?
No, but I do have a hair/makeup area here in the studio if you want to bring someone or do your own. Since we only have a 45min block of time I would recommend showing up ready for the camera.
Two Individuals - Can We Take Images Together?
Of course! This type of session is setup so we can take individuals as well as images together.
What If I'm Nervous?
That only means you're normal! To combat this I like to keep things light and fun. To further keep things loose we'll play some music and you will be able to see everything we capture on my computer as it's captured. This is a collaborative process and our mutual goal is to create something that we can all be excited about!
