learn about the process

Not here!
I am all about simplicity, therefore I don't have sitting fees, minimum print credits, limited resolution sizes, and so many other requirements. One session price & no surprises!

With so many photographers these days, it can be hard to understand all the sitting fees, resolution sizes, and print credits.

why choose me?

the details

Once you fill out the contact form on my website, it comes directly to my email. I try and respond as quickly as I can, because I know your time is valuable! 

I ask you to share your hopes and dreams for your upcoming photo session, and try and learn of what you are envisioning for your experience with me.

Once you're ready to move forward, I send you everything online! 

initial inquiry

Once you say you are ready to book (I do a happy dance) and I send you an online proposal that includes an easy to understand contract and online invoice. All of which can be done online!

Once I receive your 50% deposit, I send you a complimentary style and experience guide for your upcoming shoot, and we start narrowing down a shoot date that works for your schedule!

ready to book

Now here's the fun part! Planning for your shoot is a cinch, because I send you a lengthy Style and Experience Guide that shares my best tips and tricks I have learned over a decade of shooting!

This is when you get to have fun dreaming up color themes, textures, accessories, and all things that you envision for your session! 

prepping for your shoot

This is where you can relax...all of the business stuff is done, planning has paid off, and all you have to do is show up!

I pride myself on creating a fun, relaxed and stress-free session--no matter if wardrobes got dirty on the way, or it's the last thing the husband wants to do that day...it's my job to make you guys feel at ease in front of my camera.

We play games and make it fun so that you can relax and enjoy everything you have worked so hard to create!

your session day

You won't have to make time in your busy schedule to come to a viewing session! Nope! Instead you will get the best email of your day with a link to your online viewing/downloading gallery of all of your images from your shoot!

When you're ready, at the click of a button you can download your images to your devices, and hopefully print them to share them in your home.

delivery of images

It is my hope that your images don't live on your computer's hard drive or locked on your phone. Instead, I hope that you print your investment so you and others can enjoy your images for decades to come.

With your online gallery, you have the option to easily print your images using my favorite professional portrait printing service that uses archival paper that will protect your images for years to come.

WHAT IS LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY?

Lifestyle photography is a stark difference from studio photography. Unlike studio photography, lifestyle photography focuses more on the relaxed nature of real-life, versus posed with studio lighting. It's not perfection, but more reflection of real life. Lifestyle photography is for those who want a more relaxed form of photography.
 
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

Wardrobe choices are extremely important to get beautiful images, however, many clients are clueless where to start! Luckily all of my KVP clients get a complimentary Style Guide suited to their upcoming shoot that gives them lots of ideas for color schemes, textures, layers, and so much more!

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO BOOK YOU?

Just reach out and start the process! I have a super simple and easy process from beginning to end. We start with your initial inquiry using my contact form on my website, then I email you back to get an idea of what you are dreaming of for your session. Once you want to move forward, I send you an online proposal that includes a contract and an invoice for your 50% deposit--both of which you can fill out online! 

DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS?
 
Yes! All images delivered are color-corrected, converted to jpeg, and saved at the highest resolution. Each package comes with a set number of complete edits, which would include smoothing out blemishes, hair fly aways, or wrinkles if possible. I am not a photoshop photographer, meaning I do not do heavy photoshopping edits on my images, because I want my images to have a more life-like look, versus looking more fake.

IS STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY AVAILABLE?

No, I do not have a studio, but I am able to shoot in your home if it has ample light. I am a natural light photographer, therefore I do not use studios.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

You are guaranteed your photos within 2 weeks of the shoot date (4-6 weeks if it is a wedding).

DO YOU SHOOT ALL TYPES OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
Yes, I do maternity, lifestyle newborns, families, seniors, and weddings! I only book a certain number of weddings and seniors per year, so I recommend booking 2-3 months early.


WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?

I have 3 kids, so I get it. Especially the world with Covid--I understand that plans can change on a dime. I am very flexible for reschedules, just know that if you reschedule it might be at a much later date and time, due to other clients being on my schedule. I do not offer refunds, just credit for a future session date.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?

If for any reason you need to cancel your contract more than 14 days before the session date, I will keep the retainer, but you will not be responsible for any remainder due. This hardly ever happens, because I always try to work with you on rescheduling you for a future date.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?

Minus the blinks, bugs, or repetitive poses, you will receive ALL of the best of the best images from your shoot! Mini shoots, you get to download your favorite 15, with the option to buy more. 

WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND THAT I PRINT THROUGH YOU?

I set the printing prices to the lowest they can go (think Costco prices) in hopes that you will print your investment and enjoy them around your home! I use a nationally renowned printing service that uses archival paper and are excellent humans to deal with! I love them so much!

WHAT TIME OF DAY SHOULD WE SCHEDULE THE SHOOT?

Usually around sun up and or sun set are the best times of day to shoot--but this depends on the season! Here in Montana, the sun can set around 4:30 in the winter, but 9:30 in the summer! I just watch the light around the time of your shoot, and depending on what we are shooting, we go off of the light!

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE LOCATIONS TO SHOOT?

We can get incredible images in town, or even minutes from the city limits. I always ask my clients what they are envisioning for their shoot to choose their location. Are you wanting more of a wooded mountain look, or an open field with tall grass look? Before your shoot, I ask what you are leaning toward, make sure it fits with your outfits, then give you a list of locations that you can choose from.

DO YOU EVER DO MINI SHOOTS?

Yes, certain times of year I do offer mini shoots! They are much shorter, but are great for updating family photos, especially when little ones don't want to take photos for too long! Remember--I have 3 kids...I get it!
