The Malachite Experiece

Using therapeutic photography, the Malachite Experience aims to empowers you to reclaim your narrative through visual expression of your emotions, experiences, and even aspirations. It crystallizes your thoughts into tangible declarations and images that can be revisited later to meet your personal healing needs. Through the power of photography, you’ll gain new insights, and celebrate the moments of triumph that shape your life.

Life is a tapestry of precious moments, both big and small, that deserve to be celebrated.

You are WORTHy of being photographed.

what is therapeutic photography?

It is more than just a photoshoot – it’s an experience meant to deepen your connection with your body image. Through 1-on-1 coaching we dive deep on your relation with your self that is meant to create lasting results. 

Gifts that you provide yourself with therapeutic photography include:

  • become more present in the moment, cultivating a sense of mindfulness and awareness

  • you'll gain a deeper understanding of yourself, your strengths, and the unique beauty within

  • use it to serve as a powerful tool for processing trauma, process emotions, and promote healing

  • embrace your unique journey and develop a renewed sense of empowerment and confidence.

  • receive the gift of personal transformation - gain fresh insights, challenge limiting beliefs, and embrace positive changes in every area of your life


Step by Step

Below is an overview of what you can expect during your therapeutic photo session.


I start every client relationship with a quick 15-minute phone call to chat with you to learn more about you and your specific needs for photography. No obligation whatsoever at this free consult, as I want to ensure we are the right fit for each other and that I can meet your needs.


Once we've decided on a time and date and officially put your session on the books, I'll send you your contract and invoice for review and completion. I prefer to walk you through this step, so this sometimes gets completed during our consultation, adding 45 minutes to the meeting.


You'll be sent a Getting Ready Guide that will walk you through everything.  There's also a 1-on-1 meeting we will have to review your intentions for the shoot and solidify all the fine details. A few days before our session is scheduled, I'll send you a message to confirm our time and location. At that point, if you seem to be coming down with the flu, we can talk about our rescheduling options. Otherwise, that's the perfect time to ask any last-minute questions a we haven't discussed yet.


The day of the session, please block off 2-2.5 hours. Typically we're done within 90 minutes or so, but I don't charge by the hour, so if there's some kind of wardrobe malfunction or we need to take a break, I like to stay flexible. 


This is the fun part! You have the choice of doing this with me or on your own - your gallery reveal. Within just 2-3 weeks of your session, your images are ready.  You'll first see them in a private slideshow. Once you've had a chance to take them all in, you'll decide which collection you want to purchase, unless you decide to do a pre-payment plan. Collections include a specific number of digitals and product credit.  After that, you'll have a full month to select the specific digital files and print items you want to use to fill that collection... it's a no-pressure situation! 

Session COVERAGE & investment

Your investment is split into two main portions.  The first is known as your “Session Fee”, which is required to secure your spot on my calendar and cover the costs associated with providing you with the best photography experience possible. Your session fee ensures that I can provide you with the quality and attention to detail that you deserve. You’ll find that my work is neither the cheapest nor the most expensive in the area, but it does represent one of the best values. Check out the list below for the full details on what your session fee covers.

all sessions include:

The most important aspect of a session fee is that is acts as a retainer for your photoshoot on my calendar.  No one else can have that date – I literally do not take on another client for that day.  As such, during this time nothing else matters than you and the photos we are creating.

Together  we review the goals and vision you want to achieve with your photoshoot.  From location selection to wardrobe consultation, all details are put in place and decided upon with my help. Every session is curated with  your personal goal in mind.

Easily one of the most important aspects of this unique experience include the discussions we have together revolving around your body image and the intentions behind your session.  This portion included not only 1-on-1 meeting via video chat or in person, but also workbooks and questionnaires provided that give you the dedicated space to dive deep into self-reflection and create steps toward a new mindset.

Included for every client is a guide with a set of recommendations and suggestions for what to wear during your photography session. The purpose is to help you select clothing that will complement the theme and vision of your photoshoot while also enhancing your personal style.

Your session includes up to 90 minutes of photoshoot coverage.  Within this time you will be guided through prompts that intend to help bring out your natural self.  This combination further adds to your unique experience and one-of-a-kind results. 

Each image provided has been carefully selected and edited for style and expression of emotion. No photo is included without thought – like a frame in the movie that shows the whole story of your photo session. You receive a private viewing of your entire gallery, and make your selections based on your collection choice.

When your images are ready they are delivered via a private password-protected gallery accessible only to you, the client.  All images are available for download up to 30 days from session, and can be requested up to 6 months after the event in the case you lose your images. 

I offer design support to help you perfect your print products. I can work to create a customized layout and design that fits your unique story. Alternatively, you can also design with pre-made templates for a faster and easier option. I want to ensure that you get the best possible outcome from your print product order.





the crystal collections

The second portion of your investment encompasses the “Crystal Collections” and individual products you will select to immortalize your legacy.  This unique set up allows you to choose what you truly want out of your experience. We review all of these packages, their contents, and prices during our initial consultation before you sign any contract or make any payments.

It’s important to remember that the session fee is separate from the cost of your final products, such as prints or digital images. I believe in transparency and am happy to work with you to create a customized package that fits your needs and budget. Payment plans are available, and can have some benefits as well. Ask for more details during your consultation.
