I'LL BE YOUR PERSONAL GUIDE
Each family is different, and each session will be based on your wants & wishes. I'll learn what is most important to you, help guide your clothing colors and choices, offer spectacular locations along the coast, and be available for any questions you have.
THROUGH EVERY MOMENT
From your first inquiry through the delivery of your images, prints, albums, and wall art, I have the experience and attention to detail to make sure nothing is overlooked. I can even recommend a good restaurant for after your session!
from start to finish
Once you have decided to book a session with me, we'll talk (in person, over email, or on the phone) about your goals for your session. We'll discuss locations, what to wear, props, and all the details related to your session. I want to get to know you a little bit better!
I'll send over a link to your personal Client Portal, with helpful guides, a questionnaire, and more. A $75 retainer is required to hold your session date.
After the consultation, we'll nail down the details based on your questionnaire and session goals. You are welcome to send me pictures of outfits you have in mind, poses and groupings you like, and any props you plan to bring with you. I'll be here alongside you every step of the way to answer any questions you may have.
In the days before your session, I'll be in touch to confirm all of the details, and with a weather check if we are shooting outdoors.
prep for your session
The big day is here and it's time for your portrait session! Be sure to leave extra time to arrive at our location to allow time for last minute makeup and hair touchups, wiping of faces, and all of those little details.
Consider bringing a snack and water for the kids, extra outfits in case of diaper blowouts or accidents, and other items on your checklist (found in the Client Portal).
Now it's time to relax, sit back, and enjoy your portrait session!
it's our session day!
About 7-10 days after your session, you'll receive a link to view the watermarked proofs from your session. These images are been lightly edited for you to make your selections. Once you have decided, I will do your final edits, which include all the little details - removing people from the background, etc., and send over a new link where you can download your edited images.
image selection & delivery
After placing your product order, I will make sure every image looks it's best and order your products from my carefully chosen professional labs. Depending on what you order, items can take anywhere from 1-4 weeks to arrive (prints and announcements take a week or less, while custom handmade albums and frames can take longer).
As soon as I have checked to be sure your products are perfect, we will arrange a time for pick up at the studio, or I will get them in the mail to you.
Let's do this. Together.
