5 to 7 days before your shoot I will follow up to share any necessary weather updates. I will continue to monitor during the days leading up to your shoot. Please note that if weather or sunlight becomes a concern we may have to make last minute adjustments!
Upon request, I can bring a blanket (white), bluetooth speaker and portable changing station.
(Please note that some of these items will not be available for travel sessions.)
There may be a lot of walking during your shoot. Please bring comfy shoes to change into as we roam! I recommend trying on all outfits and shoes before the shoot so you can feel fully confident and comfortable in your look!
Colder months - wear layers or bring a coat/blanket you can snuggle in between photos.
Warmer months - bring a towel for wiping sweat and dabbing make up. Bug spray and sunscreen may be a good addition as well!
Unless we have planned a styled shoot, I will not bring any props to our session. If more needs to be done to "set the scene" please prepare to bring those items! (Props are not allowed within GSMNP.)
I will never copy another photographer's photos. However, if you have reference photos you'd like me to use for inspiration to understand your vision you are welcome to send me a few!
If you are booked for a Smoky Mountain Session, please keep in mind that traffic may be congested during peak travel times! June, July, August and October are the busiest. Make sure you include extra time for commuting in your itinerary!
You will be sent a gallery of raw images to select for editing. Photos are completed within 2 weeks after your list of favorites are selected!
Your images will be delivered in a private digital gallery. This custom gallery is perfect for sharing your photos with family and friends. You have the option to download high resolution images suitable for printing and low resolution images that are best for sharing on socials and your website.
Your private gallery will remain live for 90 days so you’ll have plenty of time to save your precious memories!
