The Process

The Process

We first meet and talk about your goals for the session. Are you looking to create an album or are you looking for portraits to decorate your home? We start with your end goal in mind. This collaboration ensures that we create treasures for you to enjoy for many years to come. Our process includes a pre-session consultation, session, viewing and ordering appointment, and finally delivery of your images.

The Pre-Session Consultation

Let's chat! This is where we discuss what your goals are for the session. What is the overall look you are wanting from your session? Lifestyle or a formal portraits? What should you wear? Would you like the session to take place in your home or on location? What products are you looking for? An album or wall portraits? We will discuss all of this and more.

Your pictures matter, and I don't leave the details to chance. All of these things help shape the end result, so that you have photographs that you love.

Your Session

Your photo shoot can either take place in the comfort of your home or on location. In home sessions are great for capturing your family in a very authentic way. On location sessions can offer beautiful landscapes or the opportunity for your family to enjoy a favorite activity together, such as having a picnic at a park.

Do you prefer a more traditional portrait style or are you do the little moments of everyday life pull at your heart strings? I'd love to help you find which style suits your needs best. This should be a fun and enjoyable experience for you.

Your Viewing and Ordering Appointment

This is the exciting part! You finally get to see your beautiful photographs that were so carefully planned for. I encourage you to bring either a spouse or loved one with you to enjoy this portion.

At this appointment you will see all of your photographs and select what you would like to order. Packages and A La Carte are available. There is no minimum order requirement.

After you make your selections, I will send off for your products. Depending on whether you ordered prints, canvases, or albums will depend on how long it take to receive your products. Expect to wait anywhere from 2-6 weeks, though albums can take longer.
