Why I charge what I do:
The money I make from each session goes toward SO many things: it's how I'm able to pay all of my bills, buy food for my dog (and tacos for myself 😉), buy my equipment, insurance, gas, pay taxes, etc. Basically, photography is not a hobby & it's my mortgage-paying, grocery-buying, full-time job. I've also been photographing for over 5 years, taken photos of thousands of people, and am at the point in my career where I'm 200% confident we'll get photos you'll LOVE. I know good light from bad light, can adjust camera settings fast for every situation, know when & how to use additional lighting if needed, and of COURSE I know exactly how to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Photography is an investment, but it's so worth it (just ask my past clients). I'm happy to work to create a custom package if needed, but please keep all of this in mind!
Why I'm head over heels in LOVE photography:
I know that I was born to do this as my job. I love nothing more than connecting with people in front of my camera & helping them overcome insecurities they may have had when they walked in. I love showing someone a photo I took & seeing the shock on their face because they can't believe that that's actually them. And lastly, I love helping people feel beautiful in their own skin. I know first-hand how many doubts & insecurities can run through our minds every day. We may compare ourselves to someone (oops.. guilty), we may see our flaws & think, "but why do I have ___" (yep, sooo guilty of this), or maybe we've just never deeply believed that we really are stunning, strong, & worthy. The thing is, I just LOVE PEOPLE SO FREAKIN MUCH. I wish I could meet & encourage you to help you see what I see. Honestly, all I care about is the person you are & taking photos that completely show who you are - Things like your weight, your skin color, & your hair color aren't the things I focus on. I want:
To empower you to look in the mirror with confidence
Your personality to shine through your photos
To help you see what other people see in you
I've photographed thousands of beautiful people over the years & I'd love SO much to be the person who takes photos for you.
My goal is to make this process as easy as possible for you. That’s why my headshot and portrait session pricing you see below already includes a 2 hour studio fee - you don’t have to worry at all about finding and booking a studio, I’ve got it ALL covered! If you don’t need a studio for your session, discounted rates are available :) Another awesome thing about working with me is that I just require a signed contract & 50% retainer to officially get you on my calendar! The remainder of your payment isn’t due until 10 days before your session. I also am more than happy to help provide hair & makeup recommendations, outfit advice (if needed), and I send over a session guide to help you get prepped for the photoshoot! After photographing hundreds of portrait sessions, I guarantee you that nobody will work harder than me to help you feel comfortable in front of the camera and get a ton of photos that are TOTALLY you.
PORTRAITS, SENIORS, SOCIAL MEDIA/WEBSITE CONTENT
When's the last time you had your photo taken and actually had fun? Did you feel confident? Beautiful? Encouraged the whole time? This is what it's like when we shoot together. We'll turn up the music and share a few laughs (ok.. maybe a lot because I'll *try* to make a few jokes) while I capture your personality and make you look like a million bucks. Sounds fun, huh? It really IS! Having your photo taken should be FUN and that's just what you get when you book a shoot with me. Whether you need photos for your business to use on your website or social media, headshots, senior photos (high school & college), brand photos, or just a classic treat-yourself-because-you're-freaking-awesome portrait session, I'm your girl! You bet I have experience photographing all of that and more. Full portrait sessions are $750 +tax, which includes up to a 2 hour session, 2 hour studio booking, one location, and three outfits with optional add-ons of more time, locations, or outfits. Just fill out the Booking Form so we can get your session scheduled!
"IN YOUR ELEMENT" PHOTOS/ARTIST PORTRAITS
Are you a business owner, artist, wedding planner, woodworker, jewelry maker, handletterer, painter, accountant (the list goes on and on) that wants to show potential clients who you are, what you do, a day-in-the-life-of-you, and get some awesome headshots too? Then this is the session you need ASAP! You'll get content galore to put on your website and social media so that everyone who sees your business knows exactly who you are, what your business does, and can relate to you on a whole new level. If you need product photos, we can definitely make that happen in addition to your session - just note that when you fill out the booking form. Element sessions begin at $750 +tax, which includes up to a 2 hour session, 2 hour studio booking, one location, and three outfits with optional add-ons of more time, locations, or outfits. Final cost depends on your specific business needs!
Let me ask you this: when was the last time you updated your LinkedIn photo or bio picture on your website? If it was more than a year ago, then it's about time to make a visit to my studio so I can take your photo! Having an updated (and professional) picture is so crucial in business. Before I became a photographer, I actually worked in the corporate world and trained people on how to best use LinkedIn at one point. Time and time again I saw photos taken with terrible lighting, iPhones, significant others or friends cropped out.. you name it. For someone looking for a job or wanting to create a professional presence, first impressions are everything and you ARE your personal brand. What you put out there is what people see. I have experience shooting a wide variety of headshots from corporate, to small businesses, a law firm, you name it.
For individual headshots (1 person): my pricing begins at $750 + tax (this includes up to a 2 hour session, 2 hour studio booking, 3 outfits, 1 location).
For group headshots (2 or more people) - please fill out the booking form for custom pricing!
For businesses looking for corporate or team photos, I create custom packages depending on what you need! We can do the session in studio or at your office. I want to help you look and feel like a million bucks - just fill this out and we can schedule your session!
The files delivered in your online gallery are sized for web sharing & will work perfectly on Facebook, Instagram, etc. If you would like to order prints, canvases, or albums, I will handle all of your printing needs - I have separate a print pricing guide that I can send you! With each print purchased, you will receive the accompanying full-resolution digital file. If you need to purchase additional digital files or need a larger digital file than is included in your gallery, those can also be purchased separately.
For printing, I use an exclusive, photographer-only professional printing company to ensure that the quality and coloring are the absolute best. (I've tried printing at places like CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, etc. and have found that the color and quality of the images is severely degraded, muddies colors, desaturates... the list goes on). Trust me on this, you will want me to print your photos! After all, if you're going to spend money on prints that will be with you forever, why not get the best quality? I only accept the highest quality for myself and carry that over into my business as well.
I've been traveling since I was 5 weeks old (yes.. you read that right, FIVE WEEKS OLD!), so I guess you could say that it's ingrained into who I am ;) I loveeee to travel for photo sessions, and if your dream shoot is in the mountains, sand dunes, desert, etc., but the location isn't in Dallas, Texas, you bet we can make it happen! All I need is a flight, rental car & room to stay so we can create some seriously awesome photos. Fill out this form so we can get to planning as soon as possible ✨

WEDDINGS/ANNIVERSARY/ENGAGEMENTS - Click here for my wedding website!
Weddings are my jam and I'm actually a newlywed myself! So, I understand everything that you're going through and am here to help guide you through the process. This is such a fun season, but knowing from experience, it also helps to have someone who's been there before guiding you through the process, sharing some tips/knowledge, and reassuring you that everything will work out the day of and you will get beautiful photos! Wedding day coverage begins at $3200 +tax for 6 hours and all of my collections include album credit. I'd love for you to fill out this form so I can mark your date off the calendar!
Anniversary & Engagement sessions - My style for these sessions is to bring out your love and your personalities as a couple. Why settle for photos that are the same as everyone else's right? I'm not a stuffy, cookie cutter photographer and we'll spend the session getting some genuine laughs out of both of you, a bit of y'all cuddling (if you're into that), and maybe I'll have you do a piggy back ride or practice your first dance (I can't tell you all of my secrets, so I'll stop there ;)). The goal is to have FUN and get photos that you just freakin' love & want to hang up on your wall. Anniversary & Engagements begin at $600 +tax.
If you're interested in having me photograph your family, maternity, or newborn photos, PLEASE reach out - I'd love to send you my collections! My photos for these sessions are more lifestyle rather than completely posed, and to give you a ballpark, pricing is as follows: Family collections (begin at $750 for 4 people - $25/person after 4), Maternity collections (begin at $650 - these sessions are a bit more posted and I'll direct you, but still very natural!), Lifestyle newborn collections (begin at $750). I offer canvases, albums, and prints for all of these sessions so you can hang all of the beautiful photos up in your home :)
