What is lifestyle photography?

Lifestyle photography is a genre of photography that mainly aims to capture portraits of people in situations, real-life events, or milestones in an artistic manner and the art of the everyday. The primary goal is to tell stories about people's lives or to inspire people in different times. Thus, it covers multidisciplinary types of photography together.

Even though lifestyle photography is about telling a story and documenting the subject’s natural environment, lighting and posing still play a huge factor. Lifestyle photography is "posed" in an informal way such that the photographer gives some prompts and then documents the natural responses and candid moments that follow.

What is branding photography?

Brand photography is a group of professional images that represent your business visually and fit with your visual identity through their use of colors, tone, props, and more. These can include photos of you, your team, your products, your process, your space, and other things that make your business unique.

Maybe you’ve had a branded headshot taken before for your LinkedIn profile or website about page, and while a beautiful, professional headshot is important, it’s just one piece of the branding puzzle. To make your business look its best, you’ll want a range of consistent, well-crafted photos that will keep your business looking tip-top across all of your marketing material over time.

What are professional headshots?

Professional headshots are photographs used to create your personal brand, and increasingly are being used in infographic resumes and on job networking websites like LinkedIn. Professional headshots usually focus on your upper body, from your head to your shoulders.

Do you shoot all types of photography?

I only shoot personal & brand lifestyle photography. I shoot 5-10 micro-weddings per year.

*On my sessions I steer clear of racy images: this may include (but is not limited to) sheer clothing or overly revealing clothing, strategically covered nudity, lewd or provocative poses, or close-ups of sensitive body areas. So, I don't shoot boudoir, swimwear, or lingerie.

Do I need professional makeup & hair styling?

- For best results, 90% of my clients hire professional makeup artists & hairstylists.

- For lifestyle brand shoots a professional makeup artists & hairstylists are required. I can refer to you several professionals in the valley I trust.

How far in advance should I book my shoot?

I encourage all of my clients to book 2-3 months in advance to ensure they make that year's list.

Additional Retouched Images

Additional retouched high-resolution images can be purchased and require additional processing time.

- $35/per personal or brand lifestyle image
- $50/per headshot image

Turnaround Time for Edited Images

I only take on a select number of projects each month, so I can give every client that I'm working with my undivided attention for their specific shoot.

1. All the top proof (unedited) images are sent to you within 2-3 days of your photo session.
2. Personal & Brand Lifestyle images will be retouched & delivered within 21-31 business days after you've selected your images.
3. Headshot images will be retouched & delivered within 7-14 business days after you've selected your images.

What image resolutions do you provide?

I provide image resolutions for both Print, Social Media, and Website purposes. At special request, I can provide images in PNG format for advertising purposes.

How do I choose & download my edited images?

All clients will receive an email link to their personal online gallery. You will have access to all the best proofs from your shoot & can select your paid images, and create new lists to add additional images you want to be edited. When the paid images are finished a new link will be emailed where you can download your images.

What forms of payment do you accept?

I embrace the digital age, so all transactions are accepted digitally. At current we use Venmo, Zelle, Cash App & Paypal, other forms of payment may be added in the future.

Do you shoot all year around in Arizona?

Being a natural light photographer, due to the extreme heat in Arizona, unless a studio is paid for, all other photography services are limited to the months of January-May and continue again from October-December.
