What else do you do besides take photos?
-I teach private photography classes and run a Meetup Group for photography enthusiasts!

Do I get all the photos you took?
- I take care of the culling process for you - you will receive the best of the best! I will remove any unuseable photos (maybe your hair blew across your face, you’re holding back a sneeze, etc). You’ll see every good photo of you I took.

Can I just see the rest of the “bad” photos?
- If you are missing a specific "moment" that you thought we may have captured, please do let me know! Otherwise, I’ve taken time to carefully remove any unflattering images so you can sit back and enjoy the rest! As a professional photographer with nearly ten years experience and a Master's degree from the Corcoran College of Art + Design*, I promise I know which ones are the best :)
*Prior to the merger with GWU.

Can I have the unedited images?
- Unedited images are an unfinished product that need special software to even view. You hired me for my expertise in photography, and that includes retouching the photographs to deliver the highest quality, finished product to you.
All the images you've viewed on my website are retouched, and you hired me because you liked my style, my finished work. Think of it this way - if you commission a painting, you aren't going to ask the artist to stop mid-way through his/her work and end up with a partially finished piece when you paid for a final product, or ask him for sketches leading up to the final painting, and you're probably not going to let your cousin who's got a nice set of brushes go ahead and finish the painting instead. At a restaurant you expect a fully prepared meal, the way that particular chef does it. You don't expect just a few of the ingredients on your table to work with on your own.

Can I have the raw images?
- I am happy to provide the .crw files to your graphic design team - please inquire for rates.

Can I download my proof* gallery?
- The unedited images you see in your proof gallery are low res, unfinished photos. The final product I provide, and that you are ultimately paying for, is high res, finished images. I only provide complete work to my clients. *Proof galleries are only applicable to some sessions, look under "Rates" for specific details on each booking type.

The proofs* look great as they are. Can I just download those?
- You can certainly request minimal or no retouching, but please note the proofs are low res, unfinished, unsharpened photos intended as a preview for viewing as a gallery only, not photos you can print and share. *Proof galleries are only applicable to some sessions, look under "Rates" for specific details on each booking type.

Anything else?
-I am a passionate Argentine tango dancer, world traveler, and am trilingual.
