What is a consultation?
This is where we talk about you, your family, friends and lifestyle. I am interested in you and what makes you tick. You can tell me about your hobbies, design and clothing styles that appeal to you. I would love to see pictures of your home, the decor, wall space, ceiling height, and available light. The more I know about you and your lifestyle, the better the connection between us, and the more comfortable and free the experience will be.
Where do your photo sessions take place and what time of day?
I prefer shooting with natural light, in a natural environment. When I am in New Orleans, I often shoot in certain areas of the French Quarter, client's homes, and other beautiful or interesting areas in the city. The best place to shoot is in an environment that appeals to you. I will always give a few recommendations. The best time of day is early in morning and late in the afternoon. When the sun is rising and falling is the perfect time, and what photographer's call the "golden hour."
How long does a typical photo session take?
The first 20 minutes is about getting acclimated, in the groove or zone, where the session is flowing usually lasting from 1-2 hours.
What should I wear?
It is most important that you are comfortable, love what you are wearing, and can move freely without being concerned about underclothing showing, A good form of measurement is to make sure that you like the way you look and feel, whether you are standing, sitting or walking. Remember, it is not about the clothes. The more classic and simpler the clothes and jewelry, the more timeless the photograph.
What is your turnaround time?
I can’t wait to get your gallery of images uploaded for you to see and share with friends and family. The turnaround time for viewing your gallery will depend on our production schedule and can range from 2 - 6 weeks. We have a post-production process which involves uploading, cataloging, sorting, editing and finally, preparing your gallery of images for viewing. You will receive an email notification as soon as your pictures are ready!
