WHAT TO EXPECT
Whether its your first time or 20th, knowing what to expect during your session lends some comfort and lessens anxiousness prior to the session.
Here is a quick peek into my process:
Once your session is booked, I will send you information regarding your session including a questionnaire for you to fill out. I will then set up a time where we can chat (and video call if desired) to go over the information you provided and get to know one another before our shoot. I can provide help with wardrobe at any time if needed.
We complete our session, and have a blast!
I will post a sneak peek of the session to my Facebook and Instagram business pages, you are encouraged to ‘share’ my post with friends and family on your sites. Please make sure to tag our page when you do. :)
Once your gallery is ready, you will be emailed the link and password to your online gallery. You are welcome to share this information with anyone whom you choose. Friends and family can purchase their own images and/or prints via the gallery as well. Some find the next steps easier if we have a gallery reveal via zoom. This is not mandatory but available upon request. Either way, I will be able to make sure you know what happens next.
I have found that by providing my clients the ability to choose which images are their favorites, they are happier with their experience and love their images that much more. Once you view ALL of the images from your session on the gallery, YOU to decide which photographs images you want. This is when you would request advanced editing and/or images.
Editing : Every image is lightly edited and cropped for you, however, if you request advanced editing, I will carefully retouch and enhance those images. Once, selections and editing is finished, you can then download the full, high res images right on your computer. You will already have your signed ‘Print Release’, as this is built into the contract. This document will allow you to print/share your images at your own leisure. If you would like to purchase prints from a professional lab, that will be available to you on the gallery site as well.
Clients can also purchase the USB option for an additional charge.

During your photo session we will be have fun, laugh and explore many different scenarios. My favorite is the "Unscripted" style of photography, as I am always looking for natural poses. I strive to capture families and couples naturally interacting with each other. These images make for the best memories to cherish in my opinion.
Try to make sure everyone is well rested on the day of your photo session (that goes for kiddos too....and teens! lol). Make sure you don't come with empty bellies...eat something and stay well hydrated. Bad moods, whether hungry, tired or just not interested, most of the time will show up in pictures! Some good advice for you is to not have other activities on the session day so you are relaxed and not rushed.
When you arrive for the session, be ready to have fun....dance, skip, twirl and laugh! It’s all about the real you and your family having fun, showing true emotion and true expressions. Today's photography isn't all about "pose, smile and click"!
Please indulge me, as we will move around from place to place to capture and utilize a variety of colors, textures, scenery and light. It can be a very energetic session, as I change my mind often and may see opportunity in different locations.
Please feel free to share your Pinterest-inspired ideas. It always helps to understand exactly what my client is envisioning.
We can have your photo session anywhere, really. You share your vision and i can help your pick a perfect location: beach, park, lake, field, rustic places, historic, etc.
