WHAT TO EXPECT
When choosing a photographer, it is not just about the pictures. Although falling in love with my images should be the most important component of choosing me as your photographer, there is more to a photo session. The information below will give you more details on what a photo session with me is like.
Before Our Session:
When you first contact me we will cover what type of session you would like to schedule and any questions you may have. Are you looking to book a family session, maternity, newborn, engagement session or a documentary style session of any of these?
After you decide to book with me I will send you my online photography contract and invoice for the online payment of your deposit fee to secure your spot on my schedule.
After both are received we will then plan your photo session!
We will work together to pick a location that is perfect for you. Whether we hike deep into the woods, run along the beach, or lay a blanket out in an open field, you want to feel comfortable in your surroundings.
During Our Session:
When we meet for our session, I like to chat and play with the kids for a bit before I begin shooting. It’s important for them to get to know me a little before
I start taking photos. Once everyone is more familiar with each other I will begin photographing.
With all of my sessions, I never expect everyone to be looking at the camera and smiling to have the perfect portrait. Honestly, I don't encourage that. I encourage running and jumping, hugging and kissing. Connecting with and loving on each other.
Your children (and you!) will never feel pressured to perform or be forced to give me fake smiles.
You will leave our session feeling like you just had a fun afternoon with your family, and a photographer happened to be there to capture timeless moments for you.
I can't count how many times parents have contacted me after their session to tell me their kids keep asking for me to come back. Or thanking me for how easy and stress free their photography session was.
After Our Session:
Within a few days from our session I will post a couple of sneak peek images on social media. I love the peek into your gallery that this provides (and I know how anxious you are to see them as well!) Within three weeks from our session, your images will be fully edited for you to view in an online password protected gallery. From there you download your high resolution images for printing at your print lab of choice. You also have the option of ordering a la carte prints, canvas', and photo gifts straight from your gallery, from a professional, high quality printing lab.
Along with your high resolution images you will receive lower resolution images perfectly sized for social media sharing. Those social media sized images will also be in a personalized smartphone app for you to download and have access to your gallery right from your phone! Perfect for social media sharing along with showing off your gallery right from your phone while you are out with friends and family.
If you have any further questions or you are ready to book your session, please contact me!
Let me document moments and memories for you that will last for generations.
I look forward to talking and working with you!
