Your session is about more than just the photo. It's about the emotions held in each moment. I don't want to tell you who to be or how to act, I want to guide you into a zone of authenticity and help allow you to embrace the moment. Be wild, be heartfelt, be anything you want to be - my sessions will always be a judgement free zone. I'm here with you and for you to preserve those special moments.

Working with Aliyah was such a magical experience! I usually feel so awkward when a camera comes out, but Aliyah made me feel comfy and kept me laughing the whole shoot! It was nice to feel like I was just hanging out with a friend rather than having a stressful photoshoot! On top of that, the final photos took my breath away- they were so beautiful and captured exactly how I have always dreamt of being seen.
Every session is going to be very different so I don't have a set number of images that I advertise with my packages. What I can do though, is guarantee that you will have plenty of images that capture our session beautifully and authentically.
Life happens. I totally understand that! If something comes up and we need to reschedule, then I will gladly work with you to find a new date that works. Often times here in Washington, the weather will do us a little dirty and switch on us last minute - I personally love a moody, rainy day shoot and can make some magic happen with that. But it's your day - so let's work together on it.
I don't like to tell people how to be themselves... so definitely wear something that you feel totally comfortable in! I like to guide people to sticking with neutral tones - whites, creams, blacks, earthy non-saturated tones. I am currently working on an outfit guide though so definitely stay tuned for that!
I am based in Enumclaw, Washington and I absolutely do travel! I love going on an adventure whether that's a day trip or an overnight stay. I thrive in the PNW environment but would love to go on your next adventure with you.
This is not something I do. Photography is a form of artwork and taking the photos alone is only half of that art. The rest of the magic happens when I edit! I want to deliver a full gallery of masterpiece images. If you feel like you are missing a specific image you were looking for, just ask me and we will see what I have in the vault!
Yes! I do offer payment plans. I request a 50% retainer to hold your date and then the other 50% is due to me the week before your session. You can make payments overtime on that second half so you are not making the payment all at once if you prefer.
I don't photoshop anything major outside out small blemishes or people in the background of an image. But if there is something you are insecure about, please let me know and I will work around that while I am guiding you through our session.
I usually am able to get you a few sneak peeks within 48 hours depending on if I am booked back to back! Then for a full gallery I aim to have that delivered to you within 4 weeks or less. I totally can understand the excitement waiting for that gallery to get sent, so I try to crank them out pretty quickly for you to enjoy!
