Fill out this form! In order for me to get back to you with pricing and availability as soon as possible, please provide the date and location of your session or event. A 50% retainer is needed at the time of booking to reserve the your date, and the balance is then due the day of.

I specialize in couple sessions (engagements, proposals, anniversaries) and events (bridal showers, baby showers, gender reveals), but I do lifestyle sessions (portraits, families, maternity, pets) as well from time to time!

Engagements and lifestyle session packages begin at $249. Events and showers begin at $358. Please contact me directly for a custom quote!

Yes, I do travel! Sessions outside of the Hoboken / Jersey City / New York City are subject to travel fees. Please contact me for a custom quote for your session.

I will get back to you as soon as possible and let you know my availability. If I am available, I will send you a proposal which includes a summary of services, an invoicing schedule, and a contract. Once you sign the contract and pay the 50% retainer, your session/event will be officially booked!

I want you to feel comfortable and confident in whatever you choose to wear. That being said, I’m happy to offer suggestions! Personally, I’m a fan of neutral colors like blush, tans, light blues/teals, creams, greys, and whites. These colors will result in a soft, light and airy look and feel.

The numbers of photos you will receive depends on the length of your session or event. I estimate that after editing and retouching I will deliver approximately (but not limited to) 50-75 photos per hour of shooting time.

No, I will not send you every single photo I take, but here’s why – I do not include duplicate images, unfocused shots, or shots where you are blinking, making a funny face, etc. I want to save you the time it would take to sort through each image and simply give you the best of the best.

You will receive a link to view and download all of your high-resolution photos within 3 weeks of your session or event. Editing and retouching are part of all collections so that I can provide you with the highest quality of work. I am happy to do a second round of retouching to a select list of photos for an additional fee if there are changes you would like made. I want you to love your photos!

Yes! I LOVE when my clients share their images! You’re more than welcome to share your photos with friends, family, and on social media – but I do ask one small favor of you. When sharing my photos online, please credit my work and do not add additional filters to it. I’m proud to say that referrals are my main source of bookings, so when you credit me it helps my business immensely.

The best time of day to shoot photos outside is the “golden hour” – right after sunrise, or before sunset. Depending on the month, these exact times will vary, but please be prepared to shoot during either one of these periods of time to get the best light!

Unfortunately, weather is one thing we just can’t control. We’ll keep an eye on the forecast leading up to the day of your session and make a judgment call the night before. Sometimes we may need to completely reschedule, but other times we may be able to push the session to a different time that day. As long as it’s not raining, we will be able to shoot (clouds are not a bad thing!).

The answer is always YES! I am a big animal person, and a firm believer that furry friends always make sessions much more fun. For so many of us, our dogs are a part of the family, so including them in our photos just feels like the right thing to do! I am also happy to volunteer my unpaid assistant (aka my boyfriend, Matt) to tag along and hang with your pup while we take any shots we may want without them.

Reach out to me through this form! I’ll provide a custom quote for your session based on the info you provide there. I am SO EXCITED to work with you, let’s do this!!!
