What is your style of photography?
My main goal for your session is for you to feel comfortable and relaxed. I encourage my clients to interact with each other as well as guide them into some posed. But above all, I want to capture images of your unique self! I enjoy discussing with my clients their hopes for the session as my art is being created for you to cherish for a lifetime.
How do I schedule a photo session?
You can email me by visiting my contact page. I have a flexible shooting schedule so after you have contacted me I will ask what days of the week are best for you and let you know my next available opening and we can confirm a date and time.
What happens after I book a session?
After booking your session we will have a brief consultation, either in person or by phone to better understand your expectations and desires for the session. To confirm your booking, you will need to pay a $100 deposit to secure your session. This can be done by cash, check, or by credit card.
What should I wear?
Vibrant colors and textures are great. If neutrals are more your thing we can talk about that in our consultation. Try to stay away from distracting logos, too much white, or revealing outfits. NO bright neon colors, they don’t photograph well! For inspiration you can look at my Pinterest board here. I also have a brand NEW client wardrobe with gowns, including maternity and also some outfits for children.
How long will the session last?
All sessions usually run around an hour for a group as large as 6 people. The more people, the longer the session. But there will never be a need to rush as I clear my schedule to focus on you and your family. Newborn sessions take a bit longer (about 3 hours), as baby will need time to be fed, changed and comforted to sleep. For First Hours session, you will notify me after baby’s arrival and we will plan a time for me to come that day or the following.
Where will my session take place?
I am an on-location photographer and love to work with natural light. Most of my sessions take place outdoors. Newborns I prefer to photograph in the comfort of your home. For in home sessions I like to consult in your home to find what spots will work best for your session. You are welcome to make suggestions for locations and themes and I also have recommendations if you need them.
When should I schedule a newborn session?
I photograph newborns within two weeks of birth, when they are still in the sleepy stage! Life can get hectic when you bring baby home so it is best to schedule in advance.
Do you offer mini sessions?
I no longer offer mini sessions as I have in the past. I found that I cannot limit my sessions to such a short time frame and my images to such a small number. I like to tell a story with your session that fits my lifestyle approach. I do offer a petite Maternity session when it is booked with a newborn session or BFYC.
How do I receive my images?
Within three weeks after your session I will have a gallery ready for you to view online. I will send you a link, you will be able to download all your images from your session there. You will also receive a print release to print your images for a lifetime! There is also an option to order prints. Payment for your print order will be due at this time.
What happens if I need to cancel my session?
You have one chance to reschedule your session. If it is canceled a second time, you will lose your session and non-refundable session deposit.
