FAQ

WHAT IS THE BEST TIME OF DAY FOR PHOTOS?

Contrary to what you might expect, the brightest part of the day is not ideal. At all! We need the sun low on the horizon to get that magical light in the images, so plan for a sunrise or sunset photoshoot. 

For sunrise, I suggest we meet when it is still dark. About 15 minutes before the official sunrise time at the shoot's location. That way we can start photographing as soon as the day dawns. 

For that natural, golden, glowing, perfect light, your best option is sunset. We should meet 1 hour before official sunset time, and the shoot will last until there is no more light available. 

The exception to the rule: for lifestyle sessions at home, the best time is whatever period of the day your house receives the most natural light.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? DO YOU HAVE A BACK-UP?

I've been photographing with Canon equipment for 8 years now. My new baby is the 5D Mark IV. I use prime lenses in photoshoots (35mm and 50mm). I also loooove my 100mm for portraits and details.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR PHOTO SHOOTS?

Absolutely! I love being on the road and discovering new places.

WAIT! YOU PHOTOGRAPH WEDDINGS?

Indeed, I do! Although, not many. I take no more than 10 intimate weddings per year. 

DO YOU SHOOT DIGITAL OR FILM?

I was formally trained in both film and digital photography. Most of my photoshoots are done on digital format, while some of my personal work is done on film. I love experimenting with different photographic processes, so I've started to bring my film camera to shoots and will happily make test images with it if you allow me. 

DO YOU OFFER PRINTS AND ALBUMS?

Yes! There's nothing better than holding images in your hands. So I get all giddy happy when my clients ask me to print their photos. I offer signature fine-art prints in a variety of sizes, coffee table books with a beautiful fabric cover and matte finish, as well as classic lay flat albums.

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

Happy to! We can divide and schedule your payments up to the session or event date.
