How do I book you?
Request a free consult here! We'll video chat about your ideas, possible logistics, and the booking process.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes. To book a date, after consultation, a 50% nonrefundable deposit is required. It goes toward your final bill, and is transferrable for up to one acceptable reschedule.
Do you do family portraits? Engagements? Weddings?
I do not currently offer family or event services.
Do you do boudoir or nudity?
I occasionally accept boudoir requests, as I work with many burlesque performers. But I'm also happy to recommend other local photographers who specialize in that craft!
Do I get to choose my final photos?
Essentially, yes! We'll set up a video call (typically within a few days of our session) after I've had a chance to do an initial sorting of the photos. We'll go over them together, and you'll rank your favorites!
Why don't I get ALL the photos taken during my session?
I want the images we share from our session to be ones both of us love. That includes various editing and retouching to ensure I'm delivering a quality product. Minimum delivery amounts are always guaranteed and agreed upon prior to the session. Final amounts are better estimated during our post-session review.
Can I have the RAW images?
Nope! This artist doesn't sell rough drafts.
Do you have a studio?
I do not currently operate out of my own studio. There are multiple options for locations at different additional costs, but many clients opt for outdoor and in-home sessions at no additional cost. We discuss specific location options during consultations.
Do you offer makeup or hair services?
I do not personally offer these services, but can make recommendations for local artists.
Can I bring a friend?
Absolutely! Bringing a trusted person can make you feel comfortable & can help spot some detail adjustments on set. Please no children or pets, though.
How much of my body do you edit?
My general rule for retouching is that I only edit what is temporary (like blemishes) or changed by lighting (like under eye bags). I do not alter permanent aspects of your body, however you can make specific requests (like scars) during our post-session review. You can also look here for a variety of examples of before/after.
What if I don't want my images shared?
Sharing images is an essential part of marketing my business to new clients, so I do charge an additional fee for exclusivity rights. However, I offer free sharing exclusivity of near-nudity/nude shots.
Can I purchase prints?
I do not currently offer prints.
What should I bring to my photo session?
I recommend bringing a makeup bag for touchups, hairspray, and a backup shirt/outfit. Otherwise, we'll discuss specific items during your consultation.
Is there an age limit? (Newborn, Seniors, etc)
Generally, I only photograph 18+ but occasionally take requests for high school senior portraits.
What if my ideas for a photoshoot are...messy?
As long as no bodily fluids are involved, I'm open to discuss your ideas for unconventional props!
Can I use my photos to sell my products? Can I sell a shirt with my photo on it?
You can use the images we make together to advertise/sell your products/services, but selling any products with the image itself on it are licensed differently and require a separate contract.
What forms of payment do you accept? Do you accept tips?
I accept cash, check, Venmo, Zelle, and Paypal. Tips are never expected but always appreciated!
Where are you located?
Chicago, with my most popular locations in Lakeview and the Loop. Travel fees may apply to locations further than a 5 mile radius from Downtown Chicago.
I requested a session. What now?
I'll be in touch! If it's a service I offer, we'll schedule a free consultation.
