The

Family


Experience

One way I ensure that our families enjoy the BEST photographic experience possible is through forming a relationship with you first. I try my best to make sure that all of my families are the PERFECT fit before officially booking. I understand that having a lot of fun at your session and capturing great images isn’t the end of the process. I want to help my families celebrate these memories with beautiful photographic artwork that enhances the design of your home. I love to work with you to plan the details of the session and to understand your design style. I believe a family should connect with their photographer, trust their photographer and be EXCITED about the whole process with them! After booking, I love getting to know my clients through an optional Skype call or in person consultation which helps me understand who you are as a family and what special things we can bring to the session to celebrate you! By the time the photography session arrives, my clients feel more like friends and that creates a safe and relaxed environment for photography! Now that you know a little bit about my approach, you can continue reading to find more detailed information about THE FAMILY EXPERIENCE!

My PHilosophy...

"When my families feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images!"

1. The Plan

CLOTHES AND PROPS: I have an awesome planning guide that walks you through how to pick the right clothing and props for your session. If you get stuck with clothing you can text me your options and I’ll give you my suggestions

LOCATIONS: I have a bunch of magical locations that I love. All my location suggestions are easy for the oldest and littlest to get to, but I’m always open to your suggestions too (especially if the location is super special to you). And if you need any other help at all, just give me call. I’m here to help in any way I can!

This is the best part! My sessions are all about hanging out and having fun together! I know how stressful it can be to get ready for your session. In our planning guide you will see a bunch of tips for getting everyone on the same page before coming to the shoot.

During the session we will take portraits of your whole family and fun candid moments to show your relationships. I also love to capture special images of just the kids, mom and dad and more. I can’t wait to document this special time for you!

I love to show photos to my clients as soon as possible! We will schedule an ordering session at my studio for you and your family to see your images and order prints. This is where you get to see all my products in person to see what’s right for your family. You also get my design expertise in helping you choose the best images for you and your home.

I will walk you through my easy ordering system to help you select the best prints for your home and your family. I can also show you your artwork on YOUR walls before we finalize your order. It’s super easy and super cool!

3. The Artwork

You get MY help from start to finish to create
custom artwork for your home that you will love!


TRAVEL:
I am more than willing to travel! I actually love it when families ask me to photograph them in a location that means something special to them! 30 miles of travel are included in your session.

DIGITAL FILES:
Each of our sessions comes with a collection of digital 4x6 proofs. They are artistically edited, but do not include full retouching. These are perfect for sharing online, which we encourage you to do! While we encourage our families to purchase high quality custom artwork, you do have the option of purchasing high resolution retouched digital files with printing rights.

COVERAGE:
I like to shoot for 45 minutes, especially when there are littles kids. This way we keep the energy up, have fun, and then get done before anyone turns cranky. However, if we are having a good time and you want to do an extra location, extra outfit or something special, I’m happy to extend the session time to up to 1.5 hours at not charge. Minis are 25 minutes.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN WE HAVE?: My speciality is family reunions and I love when everyone in the family can make it to the session! I do not charge extra for extra people or furry friends. You can have as many people as you would like. Keep in mind, the more people/families at the session, the less time I will have with each of them and the less candids we will be able to take.

MY SHOOTING STYLE:
I love to have fun with my clients and play games and be a little silly. This allows everyone to relax so I capture NATURAL EXPRESSIONS and SWEET MOMENTS. I also love to get those timeless portraits of everyone looking at the camera too. I know that photography time is special so I always try to get a portrait of each kid alone, the parents together and a bunch of other combinations of your crew to really focus on the relationships between you. I give simple directions throughout the shoot to help you stay relaxed while having fun.

WHY DO WE NEED AN ORDERING SESSION?:
Have you ever taken photos of special moments in life and then never seen those images again? Or maybe you’ve spent hours trying to figure out which image will look best in your home or what type of frame you should get? Should you do a framed print or a canvas print? I’m here to help guide you and keep you from getting overwhelmed with all the choices that are made when creating custom art. I have a simple process that allows me to walk you through choosing and ordering the right artwork for you. The ordering session is where I help you take these digital images and turn them into lasting memories that you can enjoy over and over again. I do an ordering session with every family I photograph, even for the minis.

CAN WE SKIP IT?:
I totally get it! You don’t want miss out on spending time with your family, especially if you are on vacation. The ordering session is great because you can hold all of our products in your hand and truly get a sense of what they will look like in your home. It’s only an hour of time to save you time and stress when you get home. If you are truly against it, or really are only in town for a day, then we can schedule a virtual ordering session 1-2 weeks after your photography session. I do not put images online until after your ordering session.
