FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What services do you provide?

I am currently specializing in music, lifestyle, and commercial photography for bands, brands, and individuals. I am also taking limited brand collaborations for social media partnerships both as a content creator and as an influencer.

What are your rates?

Photography services start at $400. I also work with clients on creative projects of all sizes. To request a tailored quote for your brand, please contact me here.

Where are you located? Can you travel?

I am currently based out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana but I am definitely willing to travel! I shoot on location and do this full time, so I am flexible. Opportunities outside of the Baton Rouge area may result in additional fees for travel.

How would you describe your style?

My style is very spontaneous, colorful and playful. When you hire me, you are handing over the reins to document what makes you happy with my creative eye. I want to give you content that enhances your personal style and transforms your identity into something visually exciting. My work might not be the best fit for everybody, and that’s okay! Please look through my website to make sure our styles mesh before reaching out for a quote. What you see here is going to be very similar to what you get! If we don't make a good fit I am happy to refer you to another amazing photographer.

Do you use affiliate links on your blog?

Yes. Disclosure: Please note that some of the links on my website and social media platforms are affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase after clicking through the link. Please understand that I only post and review products that I believe in and recommend because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something through my links. All opinions are my own.

When should I book?

It is advised to contact me for booking availability 3-6 weeks in advance. I do not typically book personal portrait sessions more than 6 weeks in advance, unless it is during my peak seasons (Spring and Fall.)

Can I have your RAW files?

NOPE, never, just don't even ask. Trusting that a photographer will edit the images to their artistic discretion is part of why you are paying them for their services. A very easy solution if you don't like the way a photographer edits images is to just not hire them. You would not ask a restaurant to give you the individual ingredients and recipe used to make the food you are paying them to make, you'd just want the finished meal, right? People don't seem to respect creatives in the same traditional sense as they do with other professions for some reason, and a photographer's RAW files are about all the leverage they have to protect themselves, brand themselves, and leverage future business.

What gear do you shoot with?

My main camera body is a Nikon D750 and my backup body is a Nikon D700. I use a variety of Sigma and Nikon lenses which are linked below and the Adobe Creative Suite for editing. I have a Nikon Speedlight SB-700 flash for events, and I use natural light for all portrait sessions.

Favorite lenses that I most commonly use:

Nikon 50mm 1.4, Nikon 70-200mm 2.8, Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art, Sigma 24-70mm 2.8, Sigma 24mm 1.4 Art

Can I hire you to shoot my wedding?

Nope! I am not currently booking weddings. But I can refer you to some other baller wedding photographers. Just shoot me an email- I have a list ready!

Can I hire you to shoot my band?

Yep! I love photographing music and musicians, let's do it.

Can I hire you to shoot my event?

Depends! Reach out to me with details about your event and a timeline and I will get back to you with a tailored quote. I am not currently photographing births or weddings.

What should I bring to my portrait shoot?

Besides yourself and a change of clothes- nothing! My style of shooting is fun, playful, and natural. I want to capture your true colors, so please leave the props you saw on Pinterest at home!

Can I bring so-and-so to my shoot?

I am all about social interaction! You are free to bring anyone you want to your shoot. However, try to bring people that will positively affect your attitude, because it will show in your photos. Bring a friend if they will make you laugh! Don't bring your mom if she is going to nag you the whole time about the dress she doesn’t like that you are wearing. I would not recommend bringing more than 2 people to your shoot, as it slows down the photographing process. If you'd like to bring a pet to your session, that's totally fine! But please bring someone else to watch/hold the pet while we are not photographing them. Me wearing your graduation cap while holding your extra change of clothes while chasing your dog down the street while trying to take your portrait isn't as fun as it sounds!

How long until I get my photos?

You will receive a link to a digital proofing gallery of enhanced images within 2 weeks from your shoot date.
