Where are you located?

Olathe, KS USA
I serve the greater Kansas City area, and will travel if the right opportunity presents itself. I have studios I use in the Westbottoms if you're looking for a studio shoot, and I utilize numerous parks, urban areas and secret, private locations all over the city from Paola, KS to Kearney, MO.

My highschool seniors wants a unique session, can they bring their own 'props'?

YES! I LOVE THAT! It gives us both an opportunity to be creative. Give me a heads up on what you're thinking and what kind of individual you are, and we can come up with some out of the box ideas.

What if my kids are being little jerks?

Don't worry, I have 3 kids under 10 myself! That's what kids do, and all I need is that one second where they're looking at the camera to capture that face, and that precious expression that you'll want to hold onto. You'll be surprised how smooth and easy this all ends up being, even in the midst of the shoot when it all feels like chaos and no one's cooperating and no one's paying attention, I can still command the scene and (usually with some photoshop magic and face swaps!) I can get amazing pictures for you that you didn't know were possible. Have no fear! Sharyl's here!

Do I have to order prints through you?

No way!
But it'd sure be great if you did!
All the digital images come with printing rights so you are free to go wherever you'd like to have them printed. I, however, can not guarantee print or color quality when it is not printed through my professional print lab. I always double check each order to make sure they are up to par with my standards at Laughter Loves Photography. Any purchase of $500+ receives a complimentary 5x7 print of each image.

I saw 'viewing appointment', does this mean I have to go somewhere to be able to see my pictures?

Not necessarily. I do have studio space in the Westbottoms, BUT I love to bring printed proofs and samples to you, in your home, a week or so after our session together. It's much easier to narrow down your favorite images when you can physically touch them and shuffle them about-and also gives you a chance to check out the different types of products and prints that I offer. Plus I bring snacks, and who doesn't love snacks?

Can I extend the session on the day of?

Absolutely! If you think you'd like more time, or even a new location this can be purchased on the spot, through Square at $100/hr. For the most part I can get every session thrown at me done in under one hour-children, seniors, families-extended families, all that jazz. I've done this long enough that the posing comes easy and I have no problem telling people where to go and what to do to get the shots we need done in the amount of time given.

What kind of gear do you use?

All Canon, all day long. I use 2 different Canon bodies-70D and 80D paired with the Canon 70-200mmL 2.8 and the Canon 50mmL 1.2. I also use a Canon 24mmL 1.4 for those great wide shots or when I'm in tight indoor spaces.
