My goal is to create a relaxed and fun environment for you and your family. I want to capture you at your most natural and spontaneous. I do everything I can to make the experience fun and carefree.
I do my best to customize your session to your personal needs. Before you decide to work with me, please take a look at my portfolio, blog, and Facebook page . Each photographer has their own unique style and it’s important that you choose a photographer whose style is in line with what you would want your images to look like! If you have ideas for your session (style, pose, etc) and you’re not sure if they fit with what you’ve seen of my work, let’s chat about it in advance to make sure I can deliver a product you’ll love. If not, no worries, I have plenty of great referrals for you.
How to book a session
So you like what you’ve seen and are ready to book? Use the form on the Contact me tab to get in touch with me. I’ll respond to your inquiry within 24-48 hours with any questions and available session dates. In order to finalize the booking process and reserve your session date on my calendar, a signed contract and $100 non-refundable retainer must be received. The remaining session fee balance is due before or at the time of your session.
To guarantee a spot on my calendar, please schedule 2-6 months in advance.
What to expect at your session
Upon scheduling a newborn session, I’ll send you a session info guide that includes lots of information about what to do before and what to expect at your newborn session.
I like to keep family sessions as relaxed and fun as possible. Time with me will be captured in a lifestyle format and include a variety of posed and un-posed images. I’ll do some posing, some guiding, and lots of shooting as your family interacts with one another. My goal is to help everyone feel as comfortable as possible so that we capture the best and most real you. At the end of the session, I want you to have had an enjoyable experience and images you’ll cherish forever!
What to expect after your session
Shortly after your session, I’ll edit a few favorite images and post the sneak peeks to my Facebook page. You’re welcome to tag and share these photos! Within 2-3 weeks of the session date, all of your images will be delivered in an online gallery. The full-resolution jpgs can be downloaded directly from the gallery and additional prints and products can be purchased through my professional (and highly recommended!) lab. If you’re interested in a print size or product that is not included in the gallery site, please ask as I should be able to accommodate.
