I do not require a deposit. I do ask that you try to give me as much notice as possible if you need to reschedule. Payment is required at the end of the session.
In order to get the best results at outdoor shoots, I prefer to shoot when the sun is low in the sky--this includes the hour after sunrise and the hour before sunset. Please keep this in mind when considering dates.
Sessions take place on location or in my home studio, depending on weather and client preferences.
If you have any special requests for your shoot, please let me know at the time of booking.
All photos are delivered via online gallery after client picks from a selection of proofs and final edits have been created.

Where do you host your sessions?
Most of my sessions are in and around Plainfield, IL. I will travel beyond that but any location more than 20 miles from my home will require an additional fee.
Do we have to order prints through you?
Nope! Your images are delivered via online gallery and you are then free to print anywhere you'd like. I do have printing labs that I recommend.
What if the weather doesn't cooperate the day of our session?
I like to wait to make the final call the day of your session since the weather can change so quickly. If we need to we can simply reschedule, or use my studio if that is an option.
What kind of gear do you use?
I shoot with a Canon Mirrorless camera and Canon Lenses.
When do you recommend scheduling newborn sessions?
I like to hear from clients prior to baby's arrival but I usually don't schedule until after baby has made their appearance. I prefer to photograph babies within the first 2 weeks of life however lifestyle sessions are more relaxed and therefore can be done anytime within the first month. A NICU stay can alter this timeline as well.
How far in advance do we need to book for an outdoor session?
That really depends on the time of year. As soon as the weather starts to warm up, my weekends book up right away, followed by weekday afternoons/evenings.
If you're looking for a specific time of year, I'd recommend booking at least two months in advance.
