The "model experience" is the ultimate photography experience. This session is for the high school senior that wants a little more. This session is all about pampering you for the day and giving you the experience of a lifetime.
Your session will begin with being pampered by with fabulous professional makeup. It will add a layer of confidence and you will look and feel amazing. We will then head out to the location's that we have chosen. The makeup artist will come along to assist with touch-ups and style change if desired. You session will include up to 2 different locations, and unlimited time and clothing changes. I have a portable dressing room to bring along.

I have a wide range of locations to use for you portraits. Your session will be as individual as you are and tailored to fit your personality.
ABOUT YOUR SESSION
First and foremost , the most important thing to me is to give you unique portraits. They really need to tell a story of who you are. I do this by working closely with you and getting to know you. I will have a little questionnaire that will help me. I also need your help and input. This is a great time in your life and needs to be celebrated and remembered. I like doing fun and different things, so if you have an idea, I want to hear all about it. I will give you a great experience, by keeping things fun, fresh and laid back. For you girls, I like to give you images that are sophisticated, classy, age appropriate and timeless. No cheesy backdrops and props. Nothing embarrassing or inappropriate for your age. I have daughter's too. You are well on your way to adulthood but, you are still a kid to your parents. And trust me these images will become even more valuable to you as you get older. You will love looking back on them.
I love to help you style your session from top to bottom. You have unlimited outfit changes. Don't forget the accessories and I have a nice collection too. You can raid my closet. You guys can too if you want, lol.
I am all about helping you pose. So no worries, if you "don't know what to do" I help you with poses that compliment your personality, nothing forced or fake. Just enough to make your images stand out from the rest. I am experienced with working with all body types and I mean it when I say everyone is beautiful. Don't be shy with me, tell me upfront what your concerns are. There are flattering poses for everyone. And guys, I want to showcase your masculinity, no feminine poses. I will highlight your stength.
Your session will take place at any location you choose, I have recommendations. Again, a lot depends on your personality. We have such cool locations around Richmond, VA. Some popular locations are farms, pony pasture, downtown Richmond, Maymont Park, Old Towne Petersburg, lakes. I even have a farm with horses to use in your portrait. Or a place special to you. Destination session's are also available, I've shot senior session's in NYC, the beach and the mountains. What do you envision??

I don't think I've grown up yet, and hope I don't . I love music....like what my 15 year listen to, I'm to embarrassed to mention who. I love concerts and shopping. But, my style is definitely eclectic, I love vintage, textured , earthtones, red, oversized sweaters, beautiful frilly dresses, even though i never wear them. Jeans and t shirts, and shiny stuff. I'm like a squirrel when i see shiny things, Oh, and makeup. I like making pinterest boards, I think I can make crafts...but, I can't. I love art and of coarse photography. I love coffee , I love Pretty Little Liars and ID. My favorite movies are Sweet Home Alabama, Under the Tuscan Sun, 50 first dates, My Best Friends Girl , Transformers, and Star Wars, just to name a few...love movies, but not TV so much. Crazy , huh? I love mentoring teens in photography and will happy to share anything with you.
Please give me a call or send me an email and I would be happy to send you a magazine outlining all of the details. Remember my art is all custom, and I do not run a high volume studio. I only accept a limited number of session per season to ensure I can give you my undivided attention and produce beautiful artwork that you will be able to proudly display in your home.
The session fee cover my time , planning, and executing your custom session . As well as, hours of editing your images to produce art. Prints and digital copies are extra. I have packages available as well as al la carte. Packages offer you a significant savings over a la carte. And digital images are available and included in some packages.
I work with you throughout the session, from beginning to end. We will sit down and have a consultation. This is crucial. This is where I'll learn all about you and your dream session. And you will get to know me, and make sure we are a good fit. NO obligation and no hard feelings if we aren't. I want you to be completely satisfied with your session and products. And by the way, my products, ROCK. I ONLY use the highest quality products, and my customers are always , WOW'ed.
After our consultation, I wil begin planning your session, which will include securing the appropriate location, buying necessary props and accessories. Working with you on your wardrobe choices.
At the session , I will ensure you have a fun, carefree and relaxed session. If you choose hair and makeup with your session, which I highly recommend. It's that little extra that will add to your confidence and give your images that wow factor. Plus , it's really nice to be pampered. You will never be rushed. I will give you gentle direction on posing and modeling. Great posing and lighting make great portraits....bottom line. It is my job to make you look fabulous.
Afer your session we will meet in about a week and review your images in person. (The exciting part) I do tend to "overshoot", and I apologize in advance. But, I'll help you narrow them down. Sometimes , I shoot several of the same pose and keep them all, because your expression was just slightly different, and almost always, you will like one and your mom will like the other, ha ha. But , I promise I have a great system to help you narrow down your favorites. And I will help you pick cool products to showcase your images. My most popular products are my collages, which I design myself and albums-(custom designed as well) Other options are storyboards(3-5 images), metal prints, canvas portraits, cubes, just to name a few.
After the ordering session it will take 2 -4 weeks for your products to be delivered (depending on the product). And I will hand deliver them to you:))
