When you send an email inquiry, we'll chat back and forth about a few things. Then, if I'm the right photographer for you, a collection and session date can be chosen.
Booking with me is easy. After the date and time are confirmed, I'll send you a link to an online contract and a payment request for part of the session fee, to secure your spot. Once the contract is signed and fee is paid, you'll be on my calendar! The rest of the session fee is paid on the day of your session.
Before your session, I ask that your family has a meal, or a large snack, so everyone's happy! A possible late nap may be in order for the little ones, if it's summertime, since I shoot close to sunset.
During your session, we'll have fun, everything will be laid back and we'll get some great shots! A photo session with me is nothing you need to be nervous about and I'll strive for everything to go smoothly.
After your session, I sort through all of your images, pick the best from the duplicates and push aside any that are blurry, awkward or unflattering. Then, I edit each final image, by cropping, adjusting color, and taking out background distractions. If asked to, I will edit "flaws". Lastly, I carefully convert all edited images to black and white, so you'll have both versions in your gallery.
Editing can take up to 2 weeks, but it usually doesn't take that long. It all depends on the size of your session package, the size of my workload and whether my daughter is in school, or on break. Click here to see what kind of editing is included and more editing info!
After the editing is done, your gallery will be ready for you to review online. All of your session's edited images will be in a private viewing gallery, ready for you to download. Professional prints, albums, custom greeting cards and more can be purchased separately through your gallery. You will receive a discount code for ordering professional prints within 2 weeks of receiving your gallery.
You should know that I'm a laid back person and so are my sessions. A session with me will be a chance for you and your family to giggle, give hugs and create lasting memories together. I will simply be there to document them. So easy, right? Let's do this!
I have props (mainly blankets and quilts), if you'd like and I have ideas, but I also encourage you to bring props and ideas you want to use! If your kids don't like to smile, I'll make the best of the adorable, in-between moments and maybe use my photoshop, head swapping skills in post processing, to try and get a perfectly posed, smiling shot.
