FAQ’s

Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions I receive.

Where are you located?

We are currently located in Plymouth Ma. We are also available for travel worldwide. Please contact us with any questions regarding your location.

How long have you been shooting?

I have been a hobbyist photographer for many years. I have been shooting professionally for over four years.

What type of equipment do you shoot with?

I am a Nikon girl and shoot full frame, use a variety of prime and zoom lenses. While I consider myself a natural light photographer and prefer to use the light available to me I do own multiple flashes. Wedding receptions can be very unpredictable with lighting. I have back ups of all of my equipment in case { knock on woood } anything ever malfunctions. I want my couples to be reassured we are fully prepared when we show up.

What type of subjects do you photograph?

We are experienced in Wedding, Engagement, High School Senior, Child + Family Photography. We specialize in Weddings + Child Photography.

I have tried a little bit of everything over the years and made the decision in 2013 to specialize in what my heart loves the most. I just LOVE everything about sharing in a couples wedding day. From the sweet excitement at the e-session to the insanely perfect love of the big day. The giggles and nervousness while a bride gets ready, the quite moments of a first look when the groom tears up at seeing his bride to the fun and excitement of the entire day.

Being a Mama of five littles I also adore having the ability to capture your children as they are. Our portrait approach is very relaxed and natural. We want you to have the opportunity to look back at the pictures of your children and remember them exactly as they were at that stage. We very rarely use props, we prefer to capture your child in their natural state without distractions.

Do you photograph newborns?

We do not offer posed newborn sessions with props. We will photograph your newborn in a lifestyle setting in your home or location of choice. Think of a session capturing your everyday with your brand new love. Feedings, snuggles, baby toes and sibling love.

What locations do you travel to?

Wedding locations can vary from Cape Cod Massachusetts to Charleston South Carolina. We are available for travel almost anywhere!

The majority of my Senior Sessions take place in Downtown Plymouth. I have a few locations that I love down there! I am always open to new suggestions for location ideas though located on the South Shore or Upper Cape.

Engagement Sessions usually take place in the Plymouth area as well. Many couples have a place that is special to them and I am definitely up for hearing your thoughts!

Child + Family Photography can take place in an outdoor setting in the Plymouth area or your own backyard.
