BOOKING YOUR CHILD'S SESSION
To get the ball rolling, give us a call or send me an email. For outdoor shoots, I recommend booking your session right at sunrise or 90 minutes before sunset. The lighting at those times will make your child look amazing! If you decide on a location that is inside, anytime during the day will work great.
Once a date and time is decided on, a contract will be emailed to you, and the deposit will be collected. A deposit of $75 will hold your date and the final payment is due by the day of your session. All payments can be made using cash or check.
AFTER BOOKING YOUR SESSION
I will email you a questionnaire a few weeks before your shoot so I can get to know you and your child a little better.
Start thinking about the type of location you have in mind for your session. Examples: grass/trees, urban, lake/creek, old house/barn, mountain, an at home session etc. From there, I can give you some location ideas. I recommend a type of location that fits your style as well as the overall look of your home. Ordering a large canvas from your portrait session to hang over your sofa will look very nice if the location we shoot at matches the style of your home.
Don't know what your child should wear? I recommend starting them in something nice to get the non-prop photos out of the way while they are still in a good mood. Bring a few outfits to change them into and we can get more playful as the shoot progresses.
PHOTO SHOOT DAY
Aim to be 15 minutes early! Outdoor sessions rely on specific daylight and once the light is gone I can no longer capture the perfect photograph.
Props can add a bit of your child' personality to the session. Bring along a cozy blanket, your dog, or a toy they can't live without!
During the shoot, I will give you and your child directions that lead them into poses and laughter. Have fun and trust in me that I will give you awesome photos!
AFTER YOUR SESSION
Waiting for your photos to be delivered can feel like forever, but trust me, they will be worth the wait!
You will receive your hand edited photos within 4 weeks of your session. All photos will be delivered to you on a personalized google drive folder that you can share with friends and family. This insures that your memories will never be lost or damaged. You can download all of your high resolution photos right to your computer. You may also print photos from any place you choose.
