family sessions are typically booked on monday, thursday, and sunday evenings. my sessions begin 1-2 hours before sunset, and i'm kind of a stickler about this. why? the light. the sunlight in the hour or two just before sunset is very much a part of my style. i know that sometimes that can mean a late start time, but if you have littles, don't worry too much. i can offer some tried-and-true tips to make a late evening more pleasant for your baby (and you!).
when you're ready to book, we'll take care of the contract and deposit.
after you're booked, we plan! i'll send you a questionnaire and a session guide with all my best tips for getting ready. we'll decide location, outfits, and any other important details. sweet!
your remaining balance is due a week before your session.
i'll touch base a day or two before you session to make sure we're all good to go.
session day! come ready to have fun and love on your family! leave the rest to me.
after your session, you'll get your online gallery within three weeks. you can download your images, order prints and share online!
that's it. pretty easy.
family portraits matter. family portraits are important.
well, they matter because they freeze time. i'm not a mom yet, but being a nanny and a school teacher taught me how quickly the time flies. i think it's easy to sometimes get caught up in the mundane details of the every day. but, before you know it, you'll wake up one day and the hint of chubby baby cheeks will be gone from your toddler's face. your first born will wake up a pre-teen with just the tiniest hint of "little man" in his face and you'll wonder how you're here already. it's the whole "the days are long but the years are short," thing, and i know you know it's true.
i also believe family portraits are a gift to your children. portraits tell your kids that they matter. they are loved and they belong somewhere.
