Hoowithaview Photo FAQs

What's the most important thing for me to know?

The energy you bring to the session is what will be captured in your images! My photo shoots are a lot of fun, and if you arrive well-rested and well-hydrated, your joyfulness will be beautifully reflected in your photos.


My job is to bring out your most natural, confident self and capture it with my camera. Even if you don't normally love having your photo taken, I guarantee that by the end of your session you'll have a huge grin on your face.

How far in advance should I book my session? 

The earlier the better! April through May is my event and graduation busy season, and slots fill up quickly. If you have a preferred date, please let me know and I’ll happily reserve it for you. 

How many photos will I get? 

Approximately 50 unique, high-resolution images are included in each portrait session. Event photography yields between 40-50 photos her hour.


What's your editing style?

I love creating bright, vibrant images that capture your energy and personality. My photos combine proper lighting with true-to-life color — the hallmarks of a great picture. 


I don't use filters, presets, or other trendy editing styles that come and go. Hoowithaview images are timeless, natural-looking photos that you'll enjoy for years. Here's a sampling of portrait and event photos to give you an idea of my style.

How long will it take for the photos to be ready?

Typical turnaround is seven days. Once your photos are ready, I’ll shoot you an email with a link to your gallery. Expedited service is available upon request!

Where will my photos be stored?

Your high-res photos will be securely stored in Google Drive, where you can access and download them anytime.

Where's the best place to have my photos printed? 

I recommend Printique and Nations Photo Lab for superb print quality and fast, safe delivery.

Do you shoot weddings? 

I typically do not. But if you're in the Charlottesville area, I'm quite happy to make a recommendation for you.

What payment methods do you accept?

Venmo, cash, check, credit/debit cards, and ripe avocados.


I'm ready to hire you! How do we get started?

Great! The next step is to send me an email to start the conversation. Thanks so much for considering me as your photographer — I look forward to hearing from you soon!
