What time of day is best for my session?

I shoot 30 minutes to an hour prior to sunset or 15 minutes prior to sunrise until 30 minutes to an hour after sunrise. This strict timeframe allows for the absolute best lighting possible. This is how I get all those ooey gooey skies and golden tones.

How far in advance should I book?

Of course I am going to say ASAP hahah but here are some realistic timelines for you. The earlier the better to ensure my availability since my books get booked for the year fairly quick.
For my wedding clients - it is best to book 6 months to a year in advance to ensure my availability as well as my associate shooter availability.
For maternity - it is important to book between 14-25 weeks along since I do all my maternity mommas between 32-36 weeks along.
For family & other clients - I suggest to book at least 3 months in advance.

Where is the best location for my session?

The locations I use are very near & dear to my heart. I have scouted these spots specifically for the variety of greenery, rocks and secluded beachy vibes that each location has to offer. Whether you are local or a vacationer I will help you choose which location is best for your session & closest to you.
I have 1 field location & 4 beach locations ranging from Jupiter down to Fort Lauderdale for my East Coast, South FL clients.
I have 1 field location & 1 beach location for my West Coast greater Tampa area / Orlando clients.

What do we wear?

Once your session is booked I will send an email 2 days after with a hand crafted style guide to help you choose & plan your entire look, vibe & color scheme for your session. I find that this helps so much to take the stress away from coming up with all of this from scratch in your head.
If you would like me to completely style everyone for the session that is also included in your session fee. I gather all links for you to purchase & give you a variety of options to choose from. Think of me like your personal shopper!
