What is the portrait experience?
Simply, it is creating a fun and easy experience where you get the photos you envision and art work to display in your home. I limit the amount of sessions I take, so I can spend time getting to know you and what you want! Once we meet I hope that I can be your lifetime photographer! I love watching your family grow. It's so fun to form relationships with your children that love to have their pictures taken, because they've had a great experience.
Before your session...
We will chat by phone to see if I'm the right photographer for you. I love to have some kind of communication before our session. I think it eases anxiety and helps me customize the session for you! Remember I may be snuggling your sweet newborn for several hours, so I love to get to know you a little so you feel comfortable with that. At this time I'll answer any questions you may have!
Next you'll receive my customized session prep guide. This contains all the information from what to wear to tips on preparing for your session. I love to help you pick out your outfits so feel free to send me a picture of options and I will be happy to help you!
I'll touch base with you several times before your session to answer any questions you may have!
Come and have fun! I'll do my best to help you relax and feel comfortable. I know getting ready for a photo session can be stressful. Remember your pictures will look best if you are being you and having fun! Kids aren't behaving or cooperating? It's going to happen! Believe me, I've been there with my own kids and have seen it all. Whether you are in the studio or we are on location I will take the time to play with your child(ren) and will not rush your session.
After your session...
About 2 weeks after your session we will schedule a viewing session. This can take place in my studio or in your home. This will be when you will see your beautiful images! Please make sure both parents are in attendance. Using a computer program I will be able to show you your images on your walls! This takes the guess work out of what size you should order for a particular space. All packages come with a print credit. I do this because I want you to leave your session with something on the wall to enjoy everyday! Remember a CD or digital image doesn't look good on your wall! I also offer albums, prints on metal and wood, birth announcements, holiday cards and pretty much any product you would want!
*All orders will be delivered within 2 weeks of your viewing session. Birth announcements and holiday cards are completed within 72 hours and ordered with overnight delivery. Payment plans are available, so do not hesitate to ask!
