WHERE ARE YOU?

I am officially located in NYC! Studio sessions will be held at a natural light studio that rents hourly; this rental fee is included in your session cost. All clients are expected to follow COVID-19 protocols and policies. 

WHAT ARE YOUR SCHEDULING POLICIES?

Since I rent by the hour, my scheduling is based a lot on studio availability. In the event of a reschedule in the studio, an additional $50 fee will be applied to cover the revised date. For my outdoor photoshoots, I try to schedule based on the weather, but sometimes disaster strikes! But I'm always able to reschedule for no additional charge. I want to make sure you are comfy during your shoot, not dodging the rain!

OUTDOORS OR INDOORS?

Headshots are only held in the studio. I am a firm believer that we want to capture what you look like, and outdoor shoots have a lot of factors, whereas the studio provides comfortability and a gorgeous setting consistently {rain OR shine}. Lifestyle is a lot more open to the outdoor concept and it is really up to you! I find that the studio also consistently provides stunning results for these as well. It's really up to you!

HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK?

A 50% deposit is due when you book your session and the remainder is due the day of the shoot. I accept Venmo, PayPal, and Cash payments! 

WHY DO YOU ONLY USE NATURAL LIGHT FOR HEADSHOTS?

In my experience, I find that natural light is the best way to show what you really look like {after all, you're rarely going into an audition where you're lit by studio lighting}, and it has versatility in almost all aspects: film, theatre, and modeling. It's super important to accurately show what you look like in-person, and also...it's STUNNING!

WHAT DO I WEAR?

Anything that feels very YOU. For headshots, I highly recommend a solid color top since we do not want to take away from you, but lets play with different textures, necklines, and styles! For lifestyle, I love anything that shows your personal style and there's A LOT of freedom with fits! I have a niche for fashion in photography and If you have any questions about outfit choices, I'm always available to offer insight!

CAN I USE A MAKEUP ARTIST?

Absolutely! I have a partnership with Jack Brewer (@facebyjack) and there are a lot of benefits to working with a makeup artist! If you choose not to use a makeup artist, that's A-OK, but makeup should definitely be worn and I can guarantee you'll be happier with your photos! I can send some tutorials your way as well if you are not as familiar.
