where is your studio located?

My personal home studio is located In the heart of Dallas | Ft. Worth, Texas off of 121 near DFW Airport. Travel Sessions are available. Please Inquire for any upcoming travel dates or to schedule a Dream Shoot at any Location around the world.

What makes you different from other photographers?

I believe in creating a fully customized Portrait Shoot Experience that will create Heirloom Products that will last for generations to come. We live in such a digital age that I strongly believe in having Printed Heirloom Portraits in your home. One day your family members will look for a portrait of you… What will they find?

How do I book a Luxury Portrait Session

Please go to the Book a Session tab and fill out the form to start the process of booking a consultation. Once your consultation is complete, you simply pay the Session Fee to get your date reserved. We then go into our Portrait Planning Process.

What is the total process from start to finish?

  1. Studio Consultation: You will come to my studio where we will get to know each other, I will show you my space, talk about products & pricing, and answer any questions you may have before booking.

  2. Pay Session Fee: Once you have had a consultation you can pay the Session Fee to reserve your shoot date & start the Portrait Planning Process.

  3. Portrait Planning Process: Either over the phone or on Skype we will go over the following:

    1. How you want to be photographed?

    2. How do you want your hair and makeup?

    3. What outfits will you bring?

    4. What to do to prepare for your photoshoot.

    5. Answer any additional questions you may have!

    6. Schedule our Reveal Portrait Purchasing Session, as well as educate you & anyone you might bring on what to expect out of our time together.

    7. Go over & Sign Portrait Release before shoot day.

  4. Portrait Shoot: Show up on agreed Date & Time with clean dry hair, freshly pressed clothing items, a comfortably full tummy, and all the excitement! Portrait Sessions can last anywhere between 2-4 hours depending on how long Hair & Makeup takes, and how many desired looks.

  5. Reveal Portrait Purchasing Session: Usually 2-3 weeks after your Portrait Shoot, you will come back to my Studio for your Reveal Session! This is when you will be presented up to 30 fully retouched printed 7x10 images in an 11x14 mats up on my Reveal Wall. You will get as much time as you need to choose your favorites and build your Folio Box Package. I also have Wall Prints available for sale, and framing options for you to see. Once your package is finalized and paid for, I will start the processing your order the next business day. Please note, due to the custom nature of the product, All Sales are Final with No Refunds or Exchanges. *No Cell Phone Photos allowed during Reveal Session. If you need anyone to help you decide which images to bring, I am happy to accommodate during your reveal or a second Reveal Session or Skype Reveal.

  6. Delivery of Final Product: Because I source the highest quality products from around the world, delivery depends on current workload of my suppliers. Usually the turn around time for final product delivery is 2-3 weeks!

  7. Client Benefits: If you are a repeat client, and book again within the same calendar year, your Session Fee is waived as my gift to you, and you receive an automatic $100 print credit to use towards a package purchase! Word of mouth referrals are the best compliment, ask me for more information on my referral program benefits!

What are your prices

My pricing is structured like a traditional Portrait Studio. I charge a sitting fee, as well as selling ala cart prints & print packages. There are no images included with the Sitting Fee. My sitting fee includes time and costs associated to our luxury portrait session, as well as hair & makeup on day of shoot. Total price you pay is structured like so: Sitting Fee + Products Purchased. There are no images included with the Sitting Fee. Some clients spend $400, some spend $4,000. My Job is to simply take the most beautiful photographs that you want to buy them all! For more detailed information on pricing, please go to the CONTACT page and book a consultation!

do I receive digital images with printing rights?

You will receive digital images of the prints chosen cropped & sized according to the size of image purchased. Any prints purchased use your digitalis to print additional prints on your own, or ask me about my Duplicate Print Pricing.

can I just purchase the digitals

All of my packages include digital images cropped & sized up to the size purchased, therefore I don’t offer exclusively digital packages.

what can I expect day of my session

You will arrive to my studio with clean blown out hair (some clients get a blowout before hand) and clean face ready for hair & makeup. We will get you ready for your first portrait set, and start photographing! Sessions usually take anywhere between 2-4 hours depending on how many people being photographed.

What is a folio Box?

A folio box is a fancier version of a photo album. The cool thing about folio boxes is that you can gift the portraits you want to gift, keep the ones you want to keep, and frame the ones you want on the wall! The Folio Boxes I sell in my packages are crafted out of Venice, Italy ensuring the highest quality product to store and protect your Heirloom Images. Check out this video.
