Regardless of the season that you're in, and whether your babies are big, small or furry, this time in your life deserves to be captured by something other than your iPhone. Family sessions were born from past wedding couples asking me to document their growing families and now I just can't get enough!
I love creating photos to remind families that in spite of the fact that the car of their floor is covered in cereal, their laundry room looks like an episode of hoarders and mom and dad are in a permanent state of exhaustion, their love and their story are beautiful.
So let's plan a day, pick a location that is meaningful to you and create a slew of images that will fill up the frames your walls for years to come.
No one wants to look like a wet dog in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, we'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule. I always keep an eye on the weather and if there is a chance of rain, we can go ahead and come up with a plan b date. We can make the call as close to your original session date as possible. I always recommend holding out for a sunny day if possible. You won't regret it.
The sooner the better! My weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall. I try to book portrait sessions during the weekdays.
To reserve your date, I'll need a contract as well as a retainer. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let me know!
If picking out outfits for photos takes you back to your high school days when you literally tried on everything in your closet and piled it on your bed but still felt like you had nothing to wear, you're in luck.
I can send you a link to my Pinterest board with outfit inspiration if you would like.
Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. Heck, I take photos for a living and I even feel like a deer in the headlights when I'm in front of the camera.
You're going to feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and I coach you through images, I think you'll find that being photographed can actually be fun.
Within 3 weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images.
The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints and canvases. If you are interested in albums, let me know and I can design you one free of charge.
