The photo session gets a bad rap sometimes, but I am out to change that! Here’s my philosophy about photo sessions:
- They should be stress-free!
- And FUN!
- Your kids are really good at being themselves– so we will let them!
- I will be silly and goofy and do just about anything to get that smile.
A great portrait starts out with beautiful light and families who are relaxed. I work hard to make sure we have both! A typical session lasts between 1-1.5 hours and is best scheduled just before sunset. If you need suggestions about what to wear, check out this blog post I wrote with some tips. Before our session, we will chat all about what you can expect– what types of images are most important to YOU, what locations you are interested in using, etc.
How long do I have to wait for my photos?
After our session, I usually post 1-2 images on Facebook as a “sneak peek” with the full gallery of images being ready within 2 weeks. You will receive a link to an online gallery where you can view your images and choose which ones you want for your package.
What if it looks like it is going to rain during our session?
I am happy to reschedule if the weather does not look cooperative. However, I am also open to shooting in covered locations and incorporating fun props like umbrellas and rain boots! I will always be in communication with you about the weather and make sure that you are happy with our plan.
How far in advance should I book a session?
I work with a limited number of clients each month, and as such can get booked up quickly in the summer and fall months. Please get in touch as soon as you have some dates in mind and we will get you on my calendar!
