Frequently Asked Questions-
Where are you located?
25 miles from downtown Cincinnati Ohio, just over the border into Indiana. I primarily shoot sessions on our homestead located in West Harrison, however I also travel on location if requested and of course shoot intimate family stories within your own home.
What do you capture?
The heart of this is in the family preservation through photos and film. This is where my soul stirs. I also accept a limited number of High School Senior sessions each year.
What time of day do sessions take place?
If you are interested in a family film session we will determine the perfect time for you and your family through client questionnaire.
Outdoor photo sessions are planned around the beautiful warmth of the sun. About one hour before sunset for most, but if you choose a sunrise session we start just as the sun rises. In-home documentary sessions take more time so I shoot those either in the first part of the day or the second half of the day.
Your fee covers time and creativity in curating your photos + digital gallery of your photo files. This fee covers immediate family only. Prints & products sold separately. All session fees are non-refundable.

How do I receive my heirloom photos?
You will receive all of your custom edited images from your session. High resolution digital files delivered beautifully via on-line gallery along with a personal print release.
Do you offer session styling assistance?
Absolutely! It is highly recommended and offered free of charge. I will help you select wardrobe choices that highlight your family and draw your eye into your photos.
What if rescheduling is needed?
I am highly flexible, with raising a family I know that life happens unexpectedly. Also, the weather in this region can throw a curve ball more times than not. Session fees are transferable to any date that needs to be rescheduled.
How long does a photo session last?
Outdoor family sessions typically run 60-90 minutes. In-home documentary story telling sessions run anywhere from 2-4 hours.
