Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?

I live and work out of Las Vegas, Nevada. I occasionally travel around the country for clients and have dreams of eventually traveling around the world. If you would like to book a session anywhere in the world, contact me and let's set it up!

How much does it cost?

Prices are shown on the Investment page!

Do you require a deposit?

Yes, 50% of the session fee is due at the time of booking in order to put you on the calendar. The remaining balance is due 48 hours before your session.

What if I need to reschedule?

Life happens! As long as you contact me within 48 hours of your session, you can reschedule your session to another available date. But if you do not contact me before that window of time, you will forfeit your deposit and will need to put down a new deposit.

What payment options do you offer?

I accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, CashApp, PayPal and Venmo.

What precautions are you taking due to the pandemic?

I am fully vaccinated. I am also limiting my bookings to one client per day. If we're shooting indoors, I will clean and disinfect the set before and after each session. I will wear a mask at all times during the session to help protect both the client and myself since my clients don't wear masks during their photo shoot. If you would like to book and want any extra precautions taken, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

Why should SWers work with you?

I usually answer this question in three parts:
Part 1 - Most SWers self shoot their own content, and that works perfectly fine. But there are some drawbacks. They’re limited to their own equipment, their lighting setup, their physical limitations when it comes to distance from camera to subject and limited camera angles to name a few. So working with me allows you to tap into my high-end camera equipment, lighting setups, creative concepts, different shooting angles, PLUS my network of fans and followers.
Part 2 - Networks are often overlooked on social media. A SWer who posts their content only reaches his/her/their immediate audience. But when someone works with me, I actively market the work we created together and everyone’s audience becomes exponentially larger.
Part 3 - Last but not least, when someone works with a professional photographer like myself, the production value of the content increases. Which means you’re able to sell content for higher prices, earning you more money. So not only will you be able to be seen by more people, but you’ll also be able to charge more.

Can I bring someone with me?

Absolutely! I highly encourage everyone I work with to bring someone with them to their session. First and foremost, you'll be more comfortable and because of that, the photos always come out better. Secondly, whoever you bring will probably end up booking a shoot for themselves because they'll see how fun it is. Win/win!

Is hair and makeup included in my session?

No, nothing is included in your session fee except the actual photo shoot itself. Everything else is additional, including hair and makeup, the shooting location, the raw or edited photos, etc. I have had the privilege to work with a lot of the area’s best hair and makeup artists and can refer you to some of my favorites who I love working with.

Do I have to be naked in the photos?

Absolutely not! We will only do what you’re comfortable with. Some clients don’t show any skin at all, while others do choose to be naked. Even if you are nude, you don’t have to reveal anything in the photos either. We can use different angles, props, limbs, etc to imply nudity without showing anything. Your comfort and privacy are of the utmost importance and everything will be done to ensure both during your session.

Do you provide the wardrobe?

No, the client is expected to bring their own outfits to the session. I love helping my clients pick out their outfits, so if you want help choosing what to bring, I’d be more than happy to help guide you and show you examples of different outfits. I even have a Pinterest board full of outfit ideas that I can share with you!

What equipment do you use?

I use a Canon 5DM3 and a 35mm, 85mm and 70-200mm lenses. I edit on a MacBook Pro using the Adobe Creative Cloud suite including Photoshop CC and a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet. I also use a Lomo Instant Wide and Polaroid One Step instant camera and scan them in with an Epson FF-680W scanner. For lighting I have an Einstein strobe with a beauty dish and softbox, three speed lights, a Diva Ring Light Nebula LED and a Yonguo YN360 II LED stick.

What if the question I have isn't on here?

Send me a message and I'd be more than happy to answer it for you!
