The Process

If you’re wondering what to expect from your time with me, look no further! I specialize in creating a personalized experience for you and your family that’s fun and meaningful. Although the goal of working together is to create wonderful images, I also strive to make the process of getting there enjoyable and memorable! Here’s how it works.

Initial Consultation
Every session begins with a consultation so we can get to know one another. We can chat over the phone or via email so I can learn more about you and your family, your goals for the portrait session, and any ideas you might have for decorating your home. I also encourage clients to utilize this consultation for questions and session ideas.
What to wear for your session
I know a lot of people have a hard time coming up with good, solid wardrobe choices for a photography session. It’s stressful sometimes, but it doesn't have to be! Everyone should wear the clothes in which she/he feels most comfortable As clothes make the portrait, I will discuss wardrobe options during our consultation as well as send you a welcome guide that gives direction. I have also put together inspiration boards to give you tips and to help you make your selections:
Taking Pictures
On the day of your session, we’ll meet at the agreed location and time start snapping away! A portrait session can be anywhere from 1-2 hours. There’s really no rush - or general time limit - just what feels natural. It generally takes at least 30 minutes for us to “warm up” together, meaning getting comfortable and feeling relaxed in front of (or behind!) the lens. After that, it’s really up to the photographed subjects as to how long the session will last. This is the fun part - let me do the work!
What happens after the shoot?
The photos have been taken, individually retouched with love and care, and now it's time for you to see the end result of all our hard work and planning. Portrait sessions are typically ready for viewing in three weeks. At this time you will receive a password protected online gallery to view, download and share your images.
