ASKING FOR A FRIEND
DO YOU ONLY PHOTOGRAPH WOMEN?
No, I am femme - focused.
While it is true that women do take priority for me, I also love to show as many sides as possible to men and I welcome non-binary identifying folk to approach me for portraits when they feel ready.
DO YOU ONLY PHOTOGRAPH BLACK PEOPLE?
No, and similarly to the previous answer: melanin comes first.
The standards of beauty or otherwise socially acceptable entertainment are still largely Eurocentric.
I want to give a treatment that is Hollywood, magazine and runway -- things that still typify Eurocentricity -- as much as I can to everyone that I photograph, but especially so to people with darker skin tones, or who otherwise might escape the immediate artistic gaze.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?
One month in advance is always ideal -- life is wild for everyone. That said:
For full day sessions , please book no sooner than 2 weeks before your session.
For partial day sessions, please book no sooner than 1 week.
For headshots and mini sessions, please book no sooner than three days.
DO YOU COVER PARTIES & EVENTS?
No, we are not an event photography service.
Choose us for fine-art portraits, boudoir or non-traditional headshot sessions by appointment.
AREN'T PORTRAITS AND HEADSHOTS THE SAME THING?
Headshots are self-defining: they are photographs of a subject's head and/or shoulders, clearly showing the face and, ideally, the personality of the subject.
Portraits, yes, can also be of the head and shoulders, though typically include the entire form.
If a headshot is a resume, a portrait is a C.V.
GOT PAYMENT PLANS?
Absolutely! Please let us know any flexibilities you'll need accommodated during your booking process.
HOW LONG IS A SESSION?
Portrait sessions average between 90 minutes and 5 hours, depending on your needs.
Full day sessions are also possible, lasting between 6 and 10 hours.
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
Partial and full day portrait sessions average 4 - 6 weeks in editing.
Headshot sessions average 1 - 3 weeks, depending upon the task(s) on the day of your session.
