Wondering what to expect?

Before we even meet for the session, my goal is to make you feel confident and excited for the it! I will help you with picking a location and styling everyone prior to the session. I also have a client closet that you have access to if you prefer! My goal for the session is ultimately to have fun! My approach to photography is very laidback and natural. I do a mix of posing and prompting that will bring out genuine emotions to show the real, raw and imperfectly perfect moments. I want to focus on the essences of your family to show each of your personalities and quirks that portray your unique family dynamic. 

These moments are what matter the most. These are the moments that tell your story.

This is THE process:

I. Inquiry and contract.

Fill out the quick contact form on the contact page. Include your preferences in terms of session type, date, location, etc. Once we have decided on the details, I will send you a contract to finalize the booking.

II. Planning for your session.

You’ll get a detailed client guide with all the tips, recommendations and things to keep in mind while preparing for your session. I can also help coordinate outfits for your session, as well as offer styling from my client closet. I’m always available if you have questions.

III. It's session time!

Yay! It's session day! Don't worry, this is the easy part! You just have to be yourselves so that I can capture the genuine and raw interactions between you and your loved ones!

III. Final gallery and prints.

Now this is the hard part....waiting for your gallery! I promise it won't take too long though. You pick your favorites then I send you your final gallery! These will include a print release so you can share the images online and order prints!
