I work hard for your photos to not be a, "Mom is making me sit still and smile again," moment, but an adventure, playtime, and something that your child will actually enjoy. My goal on every shoot is to capture true expressions. The sweet little smiles, the tears, the quirky expressions and even the somber faces which are my favorite! I shoot only in natural light. I will direct some posing, but my goal is to capture personality and natural body language.
A TYPICAL SESSION
The remainder of the session fee minus the deposit is due at the time of the session by either cash, check, or credit card. I shoot on location either 1-2 hours before sunset or early morning around 8am or 9am depending on the season. Or whenever clients are most available.
WHAT TO EXPECT
You will receive a welcome packet via email upon securing your session. You will be asked to fill out a questionnaire so I can get to know you a little better. For newborns, you will receive step by step instructions on how to prepare your baby for their session. During the session, expect to have fun and be yourself. I might ask you to do silly or fun things to help break the ice or to create connections with you.
Please coordinate! Clothing can really make or break a photo shoot, and that is why I can assist you in pulling your wardrobe together. I will absolutely stay true to your style while keeping in mind what looks good on camera. I am creating art and clothing is a tool to make that art come to life.
WHAT YOU GET
Each session includes photographer’s time and talent, professionally edited images, file preparation, and an online gallery of images for sharing. Prints can be purchased through me separately. All photo sessions are done on-location, using natural light in an outdoor setting or within your home. Because of my busy schedule, final photos can take up to 2-3 weeks to be completed.
