why choose me?

the details

I love to talk to my clients. Let's get on the phone and talk about your session! I want to get to know you and your journey! Whether that is about how you got pregnant, or all about your senior year, I want to hear it all!   
So, we will set up a phone consultation and talk all about your session. Give me a call: 513-328-0139

Let's talk

If you have looked over my site, or we have talked on the phone and you are ready to book.....that is AMAZING! I am ready to! We will then set a date for an in person consultation. This is done in your home. We will review products, pricing and the best part is, I will be your personal Stylist!  We will go into your closet and I will help you choose the outfits that will compliment you for your photo session!  We will work together to make sure you are looking you BEST when you have your photos taken!  We will also make sure your date is picked for the best day ever: YOUR PHOTO SESSION!

ready to book

I have several blogs I can refer you to in order to prepare you for your session!  I also have several session prep guides depending on the type of session you are having that I will send your way in order to help you be the best prepared for your session! Don't worry, I will be with you every step of the way!  From sending you a questionnaire to decide on the perfect location, to helping you choose the wardrobe to your session!  In some cases, I may even have your entire wardrobe in my client closet!  I will never leave you in the dark, AND, I am always just a phone call away!  

prepping for your shoot

I will be in communication with you via email, facebook message or phone call about a week before you session, sometimes sooner.  On the day of your session, if you are having an outdoor session, I will have my handy, pop-up changing tent for you to change clothes in, just in case there are no bathrooms open when we are on location!  I will always have wipes handy for faces, feet or slimy baby hands!  I try to come as prepared as possible to every session I attend.  

your session day

Roughly 7 days after your session, we will have a day set up to meet to go over your images! We will review. your images on my computer in the comfort of your own home and you will be able to pick out ALL of your favorite images from your session!  Want more than you originally thought your would? Then that just means I did my job!  I also print wall art, albums, canvases and more! The sky is the limit on all we can do!

I offer style consultations for my sessions, you will also  be sent information related to your session on what to wear after you have booked your session with me 

Yes, I have a studio located in Sharonville, Ohio.  I also do seasonal mini sessions in Nov and Dec.  

I ask that you contact me immediately if you need to reschedule. If your session was scheduled on a weekend date, please keep in mind, I may not be able to reschedule you to a weekend date, as my weekends book out several months in advance.

Please contact me ASAP.  You may be asked to pay an additional retainer fee.  If your session was a mini session event, those cannot be made up. 

I only offer the best times of day, morning and evenings. I recommend scheduling during one of those, but also when you know the people who you are photographing are going to cooperate. 

Since I choose the locations for our sessions, I only pick my favorite locations to take photos at!  I also have a consultation with you to plan the PERFECT location!  Book a session with me to find all of the BEST locations around the Tri-State! I know of some amazing hidden gems!
