The pre-consultaion meeting can take place in person or over the phone. I prefer to meet face to face and get to know each other personally. After all, I will be with you the whole day! We can meet for coffee, or tea! During the consultaion we will discuss your style, what you invision for the session, what you hope to get out of the session, how different locations enhance your portrait , tips to help make the session run smoothly, and of course the fun part- clothing choices!

I am primarly an outdoor photographer using natural light. Sessions last about an hour. The best time to shoot is early morning or in the evening 1-2 hours before sunset. This is when we get those yummy sun loving images! I strive to create artistic, organic, authentic and meaningful images of you & your loved ones. I want you to be comfortable enough to share, express yourself, show the love you have for your soulmate, or the joy you feel watching your little ones run to you. At times I might direct you, share an idea or simply step back and observe you being you!
Whether your session is family, maternity, newborn, children or senior portraiture, it will be designed around capturing who you are, right here, right now. I enjoy catching glimpses of wonder, laughter, adoration and true love. I keep the shoot low pressure where kids can run, jump and everyone can be at ease themselves. I’m not afraid to try new things and will laugh at myself while lying in mud to get the shot.
Newborn sessions are also shot using natural light within in your home. Prior to your session date we will discuss areas in your home that will help us decide the best place to set up & find that lovely light. Sessions typically last 2-3 hours. Why so long? This allows for plenty of time for feeding, snuggling your baby,easing siblings to feel relaxed and comfortable. I will discuss specific details regarding your newborn session at our pre-consultation meeting. I will capture your sweet new baby in the comfort of your home and tailor your session to your photographic needs.
This by far is my favorite part of the entire process! Within days after your shoot we will setup an appointment to view your images. I will come to your home or we can meet at a local coffee shop! I will present 20- 30 images in a custom slideshow. We will select the images that are a perfect fit for your style, discuss how you would like to share & display your beautiful images. I want to provide you with a piece of photographic wall art that would be the first material thing you would grab in a time of peril. A piece that stops you for a moment and takes you back to that time in your life for years to come. Once orders are placed, you can expect delivery of your beautifully wrapped images within 2 weeks.
To minimize distractions, please limit your appointment members to you and other decision makers. Make this like a date night out to enjoy. Payment in full is due on this day.
