• Planning in advance is the key to success! If your family or child has a daily routine, it's best to schedule the photo session in a way that works with, not against, this routine. If your child has a certain naptime, we'll plan the shoot to be either before or after she wakes up to prevent tantrums and fatigue. If your baby generally sleeps during the afternoon, a morning session may be best. We are here to make your session a success, and will work with you individually to find a time and place that fits the family!
     
  • You have booked your session and we have agreed on a location and time. It's time to deal with wardrobe. If you have read the above and still need help, don't worry! I spend half my day fielding texts from clients with photos of clothes. I will help you too. Feel free to text or email me any outfits you are questioning.
     
  • I will touch base to confirm and see if there are any questions the week of the session. I will also touch base the day of the session just to make sure everything is a go - weather is good, no sick kids etc...
     
  • On the day of your session, we'll meet at the agreed location and time and start snapping away! A portrait session can take anywhere from 1-3 hours. There's really no rush - or general time limit - just what feels natural. It generally takes at least 30 minutes for us to "warm up" together, meaning getting comfortable and feeling relaxed in front of (or behind!) the lens. After that, it's really up to the photographed subject as to how long the session will last. This is the fun part - let me do the work!
     
  • The photos have been taken, individually retouched with great love and care, and now it's time for you to see the end result of all our hard work and planning!  I will send you a link to an online slideshow where you will be able to view your proofs from the comfort of your own home. After you have viewed the slideshow, you will have the choice of an online shopping cart or we can set up an ordering session. At this point in time, you'll have the opportunity to choose the photographs you would like to have as prints, albums, canvas, or a variety of other handcrafted photo products we offer. I'll bring over a pricing guide and some samples and make recommendations for photo products I think would enhance your living space! This is your time to ask questions, place orders, and get excited about your images.
