FRIENDS & FAMILY
My journey as a professional photographer started with three people - My best friend Amanda who enlisted me to be her photographer, my mom who bought me my first DSLR camera, and AJ, who despite my fear of failure created my first website and became my biggest fan and supporter! I would not be on this incredible journey had it not been for the friends and family that have supported me along the way. It's been one heck of a ride! I’ve been featured on family, wedding, and travel blogs and my work has been on Oprah’s Masterclass, the Golden Globes, and the Oscars!! It’s all thanks to the support that I’ve received from you guys! That’s why I am so excited to serve as your photographer friend.
I’ve created this page to go over the process of booking a session with me as my friends and family because it’s a little different than how I normally book sessions. As you know, I am currently in nursing school and still working with the Robert Duvall Children’s Fund (RDCF). As a result, I have had to limit the number of weddings and photography sessions that I am able to take while I complete the program. Before I book anything, I go through the following questions:
Can I give 100% if myself to this session/wedding? Will I be able to respond to their emails within 24-48 hours? Will I be to edit their images within a 1-2 week timeframe?
Will my other professional and academic obligations (school, RDCF) suffer as a result of my taking this session?
Will I miss the only available time I have that week with my husband, friends, or family in order to take this session?
Do we need a little extra financial support this month, especially with me not working consistently or full-time?
