PLANNING

Professional photos can be intimidating. They are a big investment and you want to make sure your photographer understands what you are looking for. When you work with me, I’ll help you plan for the session so that all bases are covered. We'll start with a planning questionnaire, so I can get to know you and learn about your family. I’ll send over a link to a wardrobe styling service that I use. The service will help you create a unified family wardrobe, based on your preferences and the photo session location. We'll touch base by phone about a week beforehand to review the day and go over last minute details.  This way you can relax and enjoy the photo session.

 

AT THE PHOTO SHOOT

I have a relaxed and casual approach to photographing families. I like to put everyone at ease. Sometimes we will take a walk before getting started. Other times I may ask silly questions or hold a family contest. Lifestyle sessions include both posed and candid shots.  We may spend a lot of time playing and being silly.  Or we may toss a ball, or do another activity your family enjoys. Lifestyle sessions are also ideal for military homecomings or Newborn pictures. Limited Edition sessions are more structured and include a series of posed shots. I offer these a few times a year  usually around holiday. They will typically have a theme. "Day in the Life" sessions are documentary-focused. We will custom design a story based on a family milestone or event. These are great for parties, homecomings or small weddings. On every shoot I carry snacks, water and treats (some have called them bribes). I even have things like tissues, combs, lint rollers and hair ties on hand should we need them. No worries! Your photos will be gorgeous!

You’ll receive a link to an online gallery (Lifestyle and Day in the Life Packages also receive a custom phone app.  The gallery will include a selection of high resolution, curated images to which basic edits have been applied. Custom portrait retouching is available for an additional charge, if desired.
