Southern Exposure Photography
To me, photography is more than your photos, it's your whole experience. My hope is that we get to know each other personally because I want to be a part of telling YOUR story. I want you to feel the freedom to be yourselves in the exact season of life you are in. So that we can preserve these memories forever.
Just about anything gets me giddy and excited behind the lens, but my strongest passions are couples, maternity, newborns, children and families. I frequently shoot other genres of photography as well, so feel free to drop me a line if you're considering me to capture your moments!
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Once I get an inquiry for a session, I like to talk or meet with the client at a local coffee shop to discuss their vision for the session.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I took photography courses in college while earning my Elementary Education degree. I have worked with and studied under many professional and celebrity photographers. I'm always attending conferences and take courses to better my education.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.
Depending in the genre, I have a three different packages for each. I want to be able to help anyone no matter what your price range is. I do offer military and government discounts.
How did you get started in this business?
I started photographing newborns at local hospitals after my first child was born. From that moment, I decided to take my passion and turn it into my new career. I wanted to be home for my children, so I'm able to schedule my sessions around their needs.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with all types of customers. Please dont hesitate to reach out.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I just did a beautiful family session. We start with the family as a whole and then do the children. Children epecially babies can get bored or over stimulated fast. We want to do the must have first then get the additional shots after. I love getting little babies to giggle, their laugh is always so perfect.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
Look at their recent work and talk to them, video call them, meet them. In the age of social media, you dont get the true feel of someone until you meet or talk to them. Being comfortable during a session because you have a connection with your photographer is always a bonus if it works out. I know during covid days its a little challenging.
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
In ten years, what do I want with these photos? Do I want them on the wall? What am I truly looking to capture during this session? When I connect with a client I become their teammate. We will work together to create what you are trying to accomplish. Im here to help you and create photos you will enjoy for years to come.
