Getting in Contact

This is the first step in having a session with me! Whether you have any questions, or if you're all ready to schedule a session, please contact me through my e-mail and we can choose a date and time that best suits you! I'll also be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Securing your Session

After you choose your date and time, I will send a contract for you to review and sign. I also require a non-refundable retainer that is 50% of your total session cost. Both of these are required in order to confirm your session. 

Taking the Photos

Yay! It's session time! I will almost always arrive at the selected location approximately fifteen minutes prior to the session start to begin prep. You can expect to get some more standard poses in the beginning, and as we get more of a flow going the fun prompts will start to pop out!

Receiving your Gallery

My turnaround time is almost always within 14 days. I will post your gallery right here on my site, with an exclusive download pin that is just for you! I do request all of my clients to not screenshot their gallery, as this can drastically affect the quality of your photographs.

Not Sure What to Wear?

how to look your best

Choosing a fit can be HARD, but it doesn't have to be! I recommend going for more of a neutral color palette, as this will create a more timeless look. If you prefer colors, lighter more muted tones are also great for photos! I do highly encourage you to stay away from any neon clothing, as well as clothing with words on it, crazy graphics, or bold patterns.

Available Garments and the process


Where do your sessions take place?

I have several locations in Manistee that I frequently shoot at, but I am happy to go to a location of your choice depending on where it is!

Do you have a preferred time for sessions?

I always recommend sessions being around an hour before sunset, to ensure that you get some beautifully lit photos! However, I am happy to accommodate a different time if your schedule conflicts with that.


Having a contract protects both me AND you! This ensures that I hold up my side of our agreement, as well as ensuring that both parties have a clear idea of what my policies are.
