Popular Questions:
Q: When do you conduct your graduation shoots? 
A: ANYTIME! I have a cap and gown that graduates can use to take their photos WHENEVER THEY WANT! Popular areas around campus get extremely crowded about 2 weeks before graduation through the ceremony date. I HIGHLY suggest doing your photos early (1-2 months before graduation) which allows time to get announcements made! You can also choose to do photos after graduation! These less hectic times ensure a calmer, relaxed shoot, with less people in the backgrounds of your photos, and NO LINES waiting at Westcott/popular areas!
I will also do shoots a few days after cap and gowns are handed out if the client would like. This is normally 2 weeks before graduation. I try to avoid doing photoshoots around the time of the actual event because the popular photo areas are very congested.

Q: When should I book my shoot with you, and how should I book?

A: As soon as possible! i normally begin booking shoots at the beginning of a semester. You can get in touch with me by filling out the contact form on my website, or calling/texting me at  904-7288478. Please include your name, type of shoot (gold/garnet) and your locations.

Q:Can I bring props, friends, or family members with me?
A: ABSOLUTELY! This is your graduation shoot, and it should be remembered as YOU want it to be! Feel free to invite family, friends (non-graduating), or bring pets, props, school-related items, etc. Get creative! *If you're bringing along other graduates for the shoot that falls under the group graduate rates.

Q: Do you provide a cap and gown if I don't have one?
A: YES!!! I have a cap and gown that fits most. Gown has been worn by those 5'0'' to 6'0'' with no problems, hat is very elastic.
