My Creative Process

Send Me An Email

The first step is to reach out and connect with me so I can learn a little bit more about your project. If I am a fit, we will secure you a date and start the discovery process which will lay out our plan.

Fill Out Questionnaire

Once you secure a date & time with a signed contract and deposit, I will send over a detailed questionnaire that will allow me to learn more about your brand and overall goal.

Planning Call

This call is designed to go over the questionaire you submitted but also the game plan I desigened for you which includes a proposed shot list, location suggestions & schedule.

Shoot Day

This is where the magic happens! We will work together and go through the shot list we created based on the questionnaire you filled out to create content for your brand.

Select Images

Once your shoot is wrapped up, i’ll send over an online gallery including all the images from our session so you can hand select the images I’ll retoucvh that you feel best represent your brand.

Deliver Images

Once I am done retouching your selected images, I will send over a download link which will include high-resolution print & web ready JPG files with a commercial license.
