We're located in Williams Bay, WI, and serve the Lake Geneva area, but love to travel!

What are your business hours/hours of operation?

We have unique hours. We are on location a lot, but now that we have a great new studio location in Williams Bay, we do offer some drop-in consultation hours on a first come, first serve basis, if we're not previously booked. We are in the office/studio Tuesday and Wednesday, but these days are reserved for editing, office work, and our commercial and product photography clients. We're happy to book consultations on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, but please call ahead or email for availability.

As for scheduling your session, we can book during the week or on the weekend, depending on your preference and my availability. For more on this, see below.

When are you available?

I book my sessions by appointment only, and my availability fills up quickly, so try to book as soon as you know you're interested.

Please keep in mind that summer sunsets occur later at night, so be prepared for a later evening shoot in the summer. Winter sunsets are early on, and for people who work 9-5, that means that weekends are often the best bet to catch that beautiful golden hour light that happens right before sunset. Weekends book quickly.

Remember - your session fee or a 50% retainer of your package is due upon booking in order to hold your date.

If you need to reschedule your session, please give me a call at least one week in advance or more if possible. Although I do understand that life happens, my time is valuable, so failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of the session fee or 50% retainer. If inclement weather or illness occurs and we need to reschedule as a result, there will be no additional fee, and your session fee or 50% retainer will simply transfer to your rescheduled date.

Do you have a studio? Will you shoot on location?

Yes! I have a great studio in Williams Bay, WI, perfect headshot sessions, boudoir sessions, pet sessions, and small family portrait sessions. We're located right across from Geneva Lake, and Kishwauketoe Nature Conservancy, so we have plenty of gorgeous outdoor locations available right in our backyard.

I am happy to travel within a 60-minute drive of Williams Bay, WI, and beyond. For distances greater than a 60-minute drive, I do sometimes charge a travel fee. For location shoots, I have both constant lighting and off camera flash, depending on the location. In most outdoor situations I shoot with natural light, reflector/diffuser, and flash when necessary. Location fees are the responsibility of clients who request said locations.

Do you offer editing and retouching?

I do offer retouching, in fact, basic retouching is included in all of my portrait and headshot sessions.  My policy is to help you look your best - while maintaining the truth of who you are.

Besides having spent 7 years collectively in the casino and arcade game industries, I've had an active career as a freelance artist - which translates to a love of creativity in my photography, solid knowledge of design, and a lot of technical skills in image processing, so rest assured, when it comes to editing, your images are in great hands.

Can you refer me to a good makeup artist for our session?

Yes, definitely. If you are booking a boudoir session, your hair AND makeup are already included in your session fee, because I work exclusively with hair and makeup artists that I trust to deliver great results and a fantastic experience. If you're booking any other type of portraits and are interested in hair and makeup, just let me know.
