We had a family photo shoot with Whitney and she was great! She was very friendly and everyone felt super relaxed around her during the shoot. The photos turned out nicely and we really appreciate the time and effort she put into editing!Dec 8, 2019Verified
Working with Whitney was truly a pleasure. She went above and beyond and even went so far as to go out and purchase additional make up for the photoshoot. She is extremely professional, responds within hours of a text or phone call and she also takes incredible photos. I am so happy to have had the chance to work with Whitney and cannot recommend her enough!Feb 12, 2020Verified

Whitney was the ultimate professional!!! She beat me to the venue:). I could see she out all her espertise into getting the best shot!! She made my daughter very comfortable and had some great ideas to make her Senior shoot amazing!! If your photographer doesn’t get on a table or Kay I the found to get the perfect shot, then apparently it wasn’t Whitney!!!! I’m definitely going to use her services again and again!!!🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰Dec 6, 2019Verified
Whitney was very professional, was proactive about making recommendations and asking for feedback and making things happen (and we like her ideas!) She was also patient with our 6 yo and explained/showed what she was doing without slowing down the process a lot. We will definitely call her again when we need a photographer!Jan 11, 2020Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The pricing may vary depending on customers needs. Certain fees such as travel fees or added services such as prints will be added on to the price after booking, but will always be discussed up front. No surprises! I don't like to break the bank and wouldn't expect you to either so be open and honest with your budget and I always find a way to provide you with quality work. NEVER ASK [ME] "Can you come down on the price?" it's so rude and quite awkward. Please do not devalue the photographer. At least not me. We work hard, we stay up late editing, we have lives to live which means we have expenses to cover. I'm flexible with ALL budgets so present your true budget up front and we'll work from there. YES: "I would love to get this type of picture done, but I'm on a very tight budget of $___. Would you still be willing to work with me?" Of course!! 😊 BIG NO NO: Present a budget of $300 and ask to pay $150. 🤨
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?-After a brief rundown of the basic needs (date/time/location) I'll offer a bit of "homework" if new clients aren't sure what they want their vision is for the images. If there are certain visual elements and techniques the client wishes to feature in their images then I'll ask them for a visual reference to act a guide. -When meeting the customer the day of the shoot, for example anything last minute, it is mandatory that we meet somewhere public first. This is just to keep everyone's safety in mind as well as use it as a chance to get any food breaks, restroom breaks, outfit changes, etc. out of the way to prevent the shoot from getting interrupted. -We will always discuss details prior to booking, but on the day of the shoot I will run through them again just to make sure there were no changes that need to be accommodated. -Dress code. I have a background in personal styling/visual merchandising and store displays. If there ANY questions concerning wardrobe or set building/location use I'm more than happy to assist. There is no question too small. For styled shoots I like to plan for a clean/ organized shoot so that there is less to edit out and a faster turnaround time for your pictures. Personal styling is free with all bookings! - Finally, the photographer isn't the only one who creates the artwork so I like to make sure anyone in front of my lens is at ease. No matter what the goal is to have fun, be creative, and feel excited to be photographed so I will always ask the customer how comfortable they or any other party is in front of the camera. - Editing takes time! Sorting through hundreds of photos and then editing them takes a lot of time so patience is key. I always communicate when the edits will be done and quote the due date based on what's realistic for my schedule. If I can get them to you sooner than what was quoted I always will! NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR RAW/UNEDITED FILES.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated with an Associates degree in Digital Imaging and have been self-taught since. Photography is one the many fun arts that is best learned by self-guidance after a point. I've always loved all forms of photography so simply by being eager to learn, studying/practicing techniques when possible, I can then execute and deliver imagery I'm happy to share with clients.
