WHAT ARE YOUR
Tips?

WHAT DOES YOUR LIVING ROOM (OR WHEREVER YOU'D HANG YOUR PHOTOS) LOOK LIKE?

There is a lot to think about when you are scheduling your photo/film session such as location, time of day, time of season, & outfits. All of these factors play into the overall feel of your photo/film. One question I like to ask those struggling to decide is:

FOR LOCATION,
TIME, & OUTFITS

Check out my blog section for more in-depth tips here:

WHAT IS YOUR
Availability?

Availability fluctuates depending on the season and my babysitter schedule (week nights after 5:00pm or Saturdays work best so my hubby is home). I love evening lighting (1.5 hours prior to sunset), but morning is an option as well. Last minute session? Always feel free to ask as a lot of times I can make something work! I have a strict no Sunday policy (except birth stories).

WHAT ARE YOUR
Expectations?

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM ASF&D:

-On-time, on-task, kind, responsive, & professional

-Clean, true-to-color, timeless, & minimal editing

-Fun, playful personality to help you feel comfortable during our shoot

-Doing my very best to get your “better side”, with kids smiling, and your husband happy all while also getting those candid moments in focus & well-exposed (now you’ll understand why I always break a sweat! ha!)

-Capturing the "real" you!

-On-time & responsive

-Understand my style and relevant info on website

-Let me know if there’s any specific poses/outfit changes/props/etc. you want or don’t want to include (and bring necessary things for setup/cleanup)

-Do your best to cover up any "blemishes" beforehand

-I try to work within the parameters of each child, but please help me and let know what works/doesn’t good with your child & when I’m pushing too far to get a smile

WHAT I EXPECT FROM YOU:

CAN YOU
Photoshop that?

I do minor post-editing, but ASF&D's philosophy is "if you want fuller hair give it a poof, if you want slimmer thighs wear darker pants, if you have a zit/cold sore use some makeup to cover it up" Please become familiar with ASF&D’s style to make sure I'm a good fit for what you want.

WHAT IS IN YOUR
Bag?
AND WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND?

I shoot with Canon, so I’m not very familiar when it comes to the other brands (Nikon, Sony, etc.), but if you’re wanting to start video/photography I’d recommend starting with a less expensive camera body, such as the Canon Rebel Series (T5i or later), and then start a lens collection. The lenses recommended above are in the order of what I would recommend purchasing first. And, for sure come join one of my video/photo classes here:

JUST STARTING OUT?

MY BAG:

-Camera bodies: two 5D Mark IVs

-Lenses (all Canon): 50mm f/1.2 prime lens (amazing starter prime lens &  my most used--f/1.4 has a better starting price), 24-105mm f/4 zoom lens (great for versatility!), 35mm f/1.4 prime lens, 16-35mm f/2.8 wide lens, 85mm f/1.2 prime lens, 70-200mm f/2.8 macro lens (super zoom!)

-Drone: Diji Mavic Pro

-Film Editing Program: Final Cut Pro

-Photo Editing Program: Adobe Camera Raw

WHERE SHOULD I
Print?

PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS:

When you're looking to print mainstream (less expensive option; however, the quality & longevity are not as great as the fine arts printing alternative) on photopaper, Costco is hard to beat with pricing & coloring (make sure to deselect the "auto color correct" option when you checkout. Also, the lustre (not glossy) is a great option in my opinion). If you're not a member of Costco, Amazon Photos is very similar.

When it comes to fine art printing, I would choose a local fine arts shop (Imaging Depot (Layton), Persnickety Prints (Orem), etc.) or online (www.WHCC.com, www.mpix.com, or www.persnicketyprints.com. There's a lot to think about when it comes to the printing material, finishes, and mounting and their websites do a great job on explaining it all. If fine arts printing is in your budget, it's definitely the way to go. Remember, if you're printing a fine arts piece or a larger print, I can always format it to the size you're printing to ensure the best quality.

FINE ART PRINTS:

CARDSTOCK PRINTS:

If you're looking to print a design on cardstock paper, I love to use your local university copy & print center (Weber State: www.weber.edu/financialservices/Copy_Center). Their quick turnaround, price, and quality can't be beat!
