Sessions

my style
My photography can be described as casual, modern, and fun. I strive to document your child’s unique personality, so I try not to give them a lot of direction or pose them. Instead, I prefer to stand back and capture candid moments that bring out your child’s natural expressions and show who they truly are. I rely on natural light only and photograph all sessions on location (either in clients’ homes or outdoors in a field or park location).

before your session
After scheduling your session, you will receive a link to a password protected site that gives details about what to expect and how to prepare for your session.We will also schedule a pre-session meeting where I will come to your home a few weeks before your session to discuss session ideas, location, what to wear, and product and placement options for the images you will display in your home.

your session
On the day of your session, the most important thing is to make sure everyone is well rested and fed. I typically spend the first moments getting to know your child(ren). Sessions usually last about 1-2 hours (2-4 for newborns) with plenty of time for breaks, snacks, and outfit changes.

after your session
We will schedule a time for you to come into the studio approximately 2-3 weeks after your session for your ordering meeting. Here you will see the projected images from your session presented in a slideshow and place your portrait order. It is important that all decision makers are present at this meeting, as this is when your order will be placed. After your order has been placed, an online ordering gallery may be setup for any out-of-town relatives that wish to order images from your session as well.
