A: Hello, there! I am Mikayla -- the face behind the camera. I love love doing what I do not only because I love being able to produce beautiful photos but also because I love loving people. I am a psychology major, photographer, and Jesus lover. I like to check off all of the boxes when it comes to careers. I am also a middle school small group leader at my church. I have been told that I am very eclectic and passionate, so I am going to take that as a compliment. I tell a lot of dad jokes and do little jigs every time I am excited.
A: I am so glad you are here and that you are interested in booking a session with me. You can contact me through my contact page, and I will walk you through your next steps. I promise I won't make it complicated.
A: Good question! I try to be adament about replying to your messages ASAP. I know how important communication and your time is, and my goal is to respect that. Typically, I will send out a response within 48 hours.
Step 2: Receive a response about planning your session.
Step 3: Decide on location, time, and concept (I recommend booking your session a week or two prior to the date you are interested in).
Step 4: Session is booked.
Step 5: Show up at your session.
Step 6: Wrap up your session.
Step 7: 3-5 days you will receive your full gallery
Step 8: ENJOY!
A: That is totally okay! I love traveling to where you are! It is so much fun for me to go new places and for me to see a place that holds dear to your heart. My travel fees start when a location is 60+ miles from my base location. I charge the standard of $0.54/per mile after that 60 mile radius.
A: I am so glad you asked. Besides receiving beautiful images, you are paying for time for consultation, traveling to and fro, taking photos, editing/culling, creative planning, and storage of images.
I am passionate about what I do, and I want to do everything to my best ability to deliver a beautiful gallery as well as give you a wonderful experience.
Currently, I do not accept Paypal. I primarily accept credit/debit card.
A: If you are looking for cookie cutter and awkward poses, I'm not your photographer. Don't worry about being a professional model or being awkward at posing. Just show up! Just be you, even if that is crazy and awkward. I am right there with you. I can definitely help you find the most flattering positions and love capturing the in-between shots that are less pose and more natural, thus creating the authenticy my brand strives to capture.
A: Yes, of course! I am willing to work with you as far as payment if concerned. I offer a two payment plans: 2 payment installments and a 3 payment installment plan.
A: Yay! I am so stoked to create a beautiful gallery for you. We are going to have such a fun time! I will definitely be in contact with you consistently, because I want to make sure that YOU get the best out of your session. The day before, make sure to check the weather. Plan your outfit around that, because I am sure you don't want to be in shorts and a tank top when it is sleeting out (if that's you, more power to ya). If you need make up and hair done, The Cabana in downtown Sanford offers 10% off of any of their services to my clients.
A: Yes, of course! I would be glad to sit down with you. I would be glad to answer any questions, walk you through the booking process, and hear your ideas.
A: You rocked that shoot! My turnaround time is 3-7 days. After I have finished going through and doing the final edits of your session, I will email you a link to your online gallery through Pixiset. You will receive a special PIN number that will easily allow you to download your gallery to your computer or phone.
A: Yes! My family is in North Carolina, so I will be back and forth from Lynchburg to the RDU area. I do have specific weekends that I am already planning on coming back for, so if you are interested, I can secure a time with you for those dates.
