Here’s where you will find all the information for booking your session. To start, please use the contact me page to get information on my availability. During parts of the year, I limit the amount of sessions that I do, because let’s be real, I am a mommy too! As much as I adore seeing your families grow, I really want to be present with mine too! In the fall, sessions book extremely quickly. If you would like to have a session during in the autumn, when all the colored leaves light images on fire, please book well in advance to make sure that I have room for you. During holiday weeks (Thanksgiving and Christmas) there is an additional session fee.
Please check the investment tab to get information on deposits and typical investment. Here you will also find my collections that are available for minis, Watch Me Grow, birth and weddings.
To Book Your Session
Please use the contact me page to find out my availability. Once we find a date and time that works, you will be sent a contract and deposit invoice. These must both be completed in order for your session to be guaranteed in my calendar. Your deposit is non-refundable. You are more than welcome to reschedule your day and time, but a cancellation completely will mean that you forfeit your deposit.
Before Your Session
I will make sure to help you with what to dress your family in and how to prepare your children for your session. I am pretty low key and want to make sure this whole thing, from start to finish, is exciting and something that you and your entire family look forward to every year. In every session I do, I try very hard to create connections between members of your family, so that you will cherish these photos for the rest of your life.
During Your Session
I do a mixture of posed shots and life action shots for all my sessions. Couples, seniors, newborns, children and weddings all require a seamless integration between these two styles. Birth photography is much more live action.
Your kids will have plenty of time to play! I do this to ensure that your kids don’t dread their photo day! I give suggestions on how to prepare your children before your session so that everyone arrives ready to have some fun, make some memories and have a great time!! It’s crucial to me that your children enjoy their time so that they look forward to their session every year.
After Your Session
Once your session is completed, you will have a sneak peek on Facebook within 48 hours. Please follow the rules for these that are outlined in your contract. These are all copyright protected. Your session will be ready for an ordering session in two weeks, usually less. Here’s where you view your photos and order your collection. Payment for your order is due this day. Payment plans are only available through PayPal Credit. I do not offer payment plans directly to me. I want to focus on my relationship with you and your children and do not want to chase payments. Prints are delivered in about a week. Discs are only available in my specialty collections and are delivered as high resolution digital downloads. Specialty items, such as albums, canvases and cards, can take up to six weeks to design and deliver.
