BEFORE THE SESSION
Before a session, it's great to talk about exactly what you're looking for in your pictures. I'm happy to communicate via email, phone, or face to face. I shoot on location so we'll need to decide on venues, for instance your home, a park, the beach, or any of your favorite places. I also like to talk about the style of pictures that interests you, for example, do you like more posed shots with props or a more natural organic feeling of just you and the family having fun? For newborn shots I like to know what colors you would like to see as well as what style of props you like. I can also help you with the infamous "What do we wear?" question. I want sessions to be fun-- not stressful-- and for you to experience them as quality play time with your family.
DURING THE SESSION
Regular family sessions usually last an hour while newborn sessions can be anywhere from 2 to 4 hours. I want to leave plenty of time for snacks, diaper changes, and whatever you and your child might need. It is important to have some of your child's favorite things on hand, like a toy or snack. I do my best to keep your child happy and relaxed, but sometimes even my best efforts can't compete with an animal cracker or binkie!
AFTER THE SESSION
After your session, images will be uploaded to a password-protected gallery consisting of a minimum of 25 images where you can view and make print selections. All print and CD orders must be paid in full before order is processed. Galleries will be up for 7 days after which they will be subjected to a $25 re-activation fee.
