Just some basics....

Is there a charge for the initial consultation?

Not at all. The best portrait experience starts with a complimentary consultation, where we will discuss how you want to be photographed and all the things you love. To ensure everything is designed according to your taste, personality, and desires, please, ask questions and share any concerns during this time.

How much is your booking fee?

Once you’re ready to book your luxurious portrait session, we require an initial non-refundable session retainer of $495 to secure your date and begin preparation and a $705 balance due at the end of your portrait session.

The session retainer includes the design consultation, fully guided poses, a pre-session wardrobe consultation, a same-day image reveal, and your choice of wall portrait presentations to build your custom collection which is sold separately.

You also have the option to hire a hair and makeup stylist of your choice or choose one of my recommended stylists in the Birmingham Metro area for your convenience. A helpful style guide will be shared with you as well.

Each commissioned portrait stands as an exclusive masterpiece, uniquely crafted and rendered as a detailed oil painting. Our commitment to preserving your heirloom extends to the use of museum archival fine art papers and canvases, ensuring longevity with a 100-year rating for in-home display and an impressive 200-year rating in dark storage.

Each artwork, a testament to individuality, takes all the aforementioned into consideration and is priced accordingly based on its size and complexity, reflecting the unparalleled value of bespoke artistry.

With that said the cost of your portrait is sperate from the session fee and our average client will invest roughly $3,800 for their wall portrait, album, or collection of portrait presentations and some will even choose to spread that investment over time with different finance options.

What happens between booking and the actual session?

After your booking is confirmed, a private mood board will be created for us to start sharing ideas. This is a lot of fun and helps me visualize your style and personal taste. You can share anything you like from poses, outfits, colors, moods, etc.

How should I prepare for my shoot?

With a better idea of your session style. You can start shopping for accessories or clothes if you need to. Remember most things you may already have in your closet, but this is also a great excuse to buy that outfit you have had your eyes on!

What should I expect the day of?

Finally, the most exciting day is here. Please make sure you rest the night before. Check the list we created for you so everything is checked off. You will be my celebrity for a day, and we will create magic together. It’s a fun day, so enjoy!

Right after your portrait session, you get to see all the images and select your favorite portraits or collections. You also get to choose the level of retouching on your photos. Please allow at least 1 hour to make your selections.

How soon will my portraits be ready?

In about 6 to 8 weeks after your portrait session. Your images will be ready for collection. The digital copies will be emailed to you in advance once they are ready and fully paid. I will be in touch with you to schedule the best time for the pick up of your collection.
