It’s helpful to have an idea of what to expect when partnering with a photographer to create art and memories that will be cherished for generations to come. The timeline below will guide you through each step of my process so you know what to expect and will feel confident and prepared on the day of your session.

1. planning chat

After you fill out the form on the Contact page, we’ll chat over the phone about your family, your children’s interests, what makes them smile and what you can expect from our time together. We’ll go over location ideas and wardrobe options and I’ll answer any questions you may have about the session. To book your preferred date, I require a non-refundable retainer fee of $55.

2. the photoshoot

My goal for our time together is for you and your family to be comfortable and have fun! I tend to gravitate more towards the unposed, candid shots that show your family’s love and personality but we often begin with the basic posed images so you’ll have at least one of everyone smiling (hopefully, ha!) at the camera. I tend to move around a lot and take many pictures so that you’ll have a large variety of images in your gallery. I recommend bringing some comfortable shoes to change into in the event that we do a bit of walking. You’ll have the option to change outfits several times, if desired.

3. your photo gallery

Within two weeks of your session, you’ll receive an online gallery of your images. Please budget a couple of extra weeks if you’d like professional prints, wall art or an album. The Contact page provides a starting price list for every budget. Please note that slideshows are only available with the Luxe package.
