What do I do?
I’m so glad you’re here
I photograph you. I am here to capture you in all your glory, whatever that means to you.
photographs should not be stiff, awkward or uncomfortably posed.
Photographs should instill confidence, passion, & love. I’m not here to take cookie-cutter stock photos of you or your loved one. I’m here to show the world the real you - serious, goofy, blurry, sad, etc. I want to get to know you & all of your quirks & bring them out to give you a badass photo & an experience you won’t forget. Sessions start at $400.
I could tell you 10 meaningless facts about me like “I love chocolate” and “I’ve never seen Star Wars”, but instead I want to tell you what my work is all about…an artist’s statement of sorts. I strive to create something lasting. I don’t want to take your photo or sell you a print that you like that year and then decide to store away in the attic when you move. I want you to feel something with my art, so much so that you can’t wait to put it back up on your new wall. My photos are all about intention, movement, and manifesting a feeling. I often find beauty in blurry images that obscure the subject. I find beauty in photos that are soft and make you think about the people or mountains in them. Anyone, literally anyone, can take a pretty picture, but I still believe - even in the midst of a technological boom - that it takes a special eye to capture something that takes your breath away or makes you stop in your steps and think.
I’ve been a photographer for 9 years
I first picked up my dad’s camera in middle school and loved messing around with it. I started by taking photos of my surroundings; sunsets, mountains, family, a pair of old converse high tops. But the more I did it, I soon figured out a common theme - people. I’ve since began to feed my love for photographing humans. I love seeing what they’ll do when I tell them to move, I love the way the light shines on faces and how I can capture emotions that are otherwise missed.
I’m purely self-taught, and did not go to school for photography. I was turned off of the curriculum of a photo class and felt that I had enough base knowledge from that first camera to propel me further. As a result, I’m not a cookie cutter shooter. I like blurriness, I like “flaws”. I like vulnerability. I like natural light. I’ve spent the past 5 years perfecting my professional style and keeping up to date with the latest technology.
I shoot real people in real time
If you’re looking for a pose-y, basic and boring, stay-in-one-spot photoshoot, I am not your girl. Expect an adventure. I like to bend the rules and find beauty in discomfort or awkwardness, so let your freak flag fly. I do minimal editing. None of this Pinteresty-see-the-same-pics-all-over-instagram-stuff. It’s gonna be raw and it’s gonna be powerful and it’s gonna be fun.
I’ve collaborated with businesses such as Barre406 Studio, G.U.T.S. Girls Leadership, Le Petit Outre, and Courtney Murphy Ceramics. As well as with brands such as Stalyon and Strongwater Surf, other creatives such as Leanna Joy Photography, Ingrid Svare Photography, The Girl With the Winged Eyeliner Blog, bands like Heavy Wood and Hawthorne Roots, families, children and more.
I love to travel and have been to Europe (Italy, Spain) as well as Guatemala. I will happily jump on a plane to photograph you, just say the word.
HOLD IT. I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS FIRST.
How long have you been a photographer?
I first picked up a camera when I was 13 and have been doing it ever since! I used to shoot a lot of landscapes but have since narrowed my interests to portraits/boudoir and engagements! I’ve been shooting professionally for about 6 years.
what the heck is boudoir?
bou·doir /ˈbo͞oˌdwär/ noun French
Boudoir literally translated means a woman's bedroom or private room. Boudoir photography is defined as a photography style in which women pose partially clothed or in lingerie. These photos are used as a way to document how great you look and feel about yourself at this given time. And a session with me will do just that. No need to prep or go on a crash diet or exercise marathon for this. These shoots are meant to document YOU and empower YOU in your truest, most badass form. They are some of my favorite photos to take and I find them crazy beautiful, powerful, and raw.
How do you price your packages?
I price each of my sessions individually and based on each clients’ need (ie; travel, location, hours, extra planning together, photos desired, second shooter, etc). Mini sessions start at only $200. I strive to accommodate everyone and what they need! For inquiries, fill out the Book Me form!
what if i just need some quick headshots?
Sounds good! A mini-session would be just right for you! Just fill out the quick Book Me form and I’ll price it accordingly (most likely much cheaper than the starting price for most of my sessions)!
What gear do you use?
I have recently upgraded to a new Canon EOS 80D. I have many lenses but my favorites are a 50mm, 35mm, macro 70-300mm. I have and Wandrd PRVKE Backpack (I’m obsessed with it, here’s the link), and a Canon Speedlight flash.
Do you travel? How much would that be?
Yes! I’d love to go wherever you need me! Travel expenses including mileage ($ .50/mi), airfare, rental car, and hotel will be covered by the client. I try to set flat rates as to accommodate travel fees. For a custom quote, please inquire.
How does payment work?
I charge a deposit of half the amount of your shoot at time of booking, then you pay the second half 1 month before your shoot. Deposits are non-refundable. I accept payment via Venmo or Square via my booking platform. I also take cash or check in person.
What about tax?
For any shoots outside of MT, I will apply that specific state’s tax (if applicable). If we’re shooting in MT, don’t worry about it!
Do you have a cancellation fee?
If you have to cancel/reschedule within 48 hours of your schedule session, a $75 fee will take place.
Do i have to wear something specific/do my make-up & hair?
If you’d like! This is mostly up to the client. If I have a certain idea for a shoot, then I will specify this and the style I wish to achieve, if not, then let’s celebrate what makes you feel beautiful! I try to keep my clients looking as natural as possible. If there’s some blemishes you’d like to hide or if you want your hair straight vs curly, you do you.
What about prints?
Depending on your session and package, prints are available to add or have been included in your shoot. Prices vary.
I also have a handful of other photos I’ve taken (landscapes and journalism stuff) that are available for prints! Shoot me a message and I’ll link you to the store, Or follow the STORE icon through the menu! Have patience with me as I am still setting up my store.
Do you share your images?
With the clients’ permission, I love to share the images from my shoots either on my photography instagram, facebook page, or on my website. If you’re uncomfortable with this, please let me know!
