So what is it like to work with me?

Booking

Once you've contacted me, we will hash out the primary details; the date, your budget and the type of session you're interested in. A $50 booking fee is required to hold your spot and is included in all of my packages. From here on out, my process is customized to you. We will discuss locations, wardrobe and most importantly, your vision. 

I truly believe that *good* professional photographers not only offer a beautiful product, but also a seamless and fun experience. I literally make it my job to ensure a smooth process from the moment you type my URL in your search bar to the day you hang these photos on your walls. 

So what does this process look like?

Planning

After you've booked your session, we begin to plan. I take a lot of pride in my work, so it's important to me that we work together to ensure we make the most of your session. Together, we will choose a location, and once the location is chosen, we will discuss your wardrobe. These are two very important factors that can make or break a session, so we will want to be sure the right colors, textures and style are chosen. Then we will discuss what you hope to do with your photos. Do you want a gallery wall in your foyer? A canvas in your bedroom? Perhaps an heirloom quality album for your coffee table. 

Your Session

It is my goal to make sure your session is enjoyable, and not a chore for any member of your family. While we will stop every so often to get a traditional family portrait, the majority of the session will be me creating moments, and then capturing it. My favorite emotion to capture is joy, so I try to keep things very light, and sometimes a little silly. 

You are going to be very excited to see the images from your session. With your permission, I might even post a favorite to social media within a day or two. Your entire gallery will be ready for viewing within 2 weeks of your session date. From your gallery, you are able to share with family, download your images, and order print products. Your gallery will expire after 2 weeks, so it's important to retrieve your downloads right away.
