My goal is to make each session a fun and stress-free experience for your family. I want everyone to feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. I allow plenty of time to photograph your family, so there's no rush if your baby becomes fussy or toddler has a meltdown. Please be sure your little ones take a nap before the session, so they're in a good mood. Always have a bottle handy incase your baby becomes hungry or thirsty during our session. You can never be too prepared for your session.
Before our session I want to identify what you want out of your session during your photo consultation. This is preferably done over the phone or in an email. This allows me to plan and prepare for your photo session.
Once a location is determined, I want to discuss what to wear for best results. I highly recommend your family coordinating their outfits. This does not mean everyone wears the same color. I prefer selecting a color palette, this will help you and your family look styled. Scroll down for ideas...
While on our session, please avoid saying the word "cheese" to make your child smile. When they say this word it actually creates a fake smile. Sometimes being silly with them instead will generate the natural smiles you desire. Please know sometimes you don't need a smile to make a moment priceless! I love smiles, but I also love special moments when your child is doing a natural action. If your child is not cooperating please do not scold them, we don't want tears. Always be patient and relaxed because they will feed off your energy. Lets always keep it fun.
Within 3-4 weeks of your session, you will receive an email to view your private online gallery. The gallery is available for 10 days for you to view, share and purchase. All orders are encouraged to be placed during this time frame to avoid a republishing fee of $25. Once payment has been received in full, your order will be fulfilled. Once order is ready for pickup I will contact you unless you chose it to mailed directly to you.
