Scheduling Your Session
All sessions take place on location or in your home using natural light. If you do not have a specific place in mind, please feel free to check out our explore locations option on our homepage menu, or contact me and I will work with you to find a location that will best suit you and/or your family.
Sessions typically last 1 to 2 hours, including newborn sessions. You are welcome to do as many wardrobe changes as time permits.
If you are interested in scheduling a session with us please use my contact page to inquire about available dates and times, or schedule online. Please note that session fees are due at time of booking to reserve your time/date and are non-refundable. All session descriptions and fees are listed below.
Once scheduled you will receive a welcome packet from me as well as a request to set up your pre-consultation appointment. This pre-consultation appointment is a time where we will go over what to expect at your session and address any questions or concerns you might have. The question I get the most is “What do we wear,” so I have created a board on Pinterest for inspiration. Be sure to check it out!
After Your Session
Within 24 hours, a “sneak peek” will be posted online for you to view and enjoy via my facebook page. Approximately 5 business days after your that, proofs of all of your images will be available to you to view in a private online gallery. This gallery will remain online for ten days. While active, I will contact you to set up an in-home ordering session if prints are desired. (If only digital images are desired, payment and delivery happens instantly.)
If a print order has been placed, please allow 2 to 4 weeks for final processing and delivery.
Session fees are due at the time of booking, and are non-refundable. The session fee includes:
- a pre-session consultation
- a welcome packet
- a 60 to 120 minute portrait session at the location of your choice (longer for newborns)
- custom processing and retouching of each image (20-30 images)
- a private online gallery
- an ordering consultation at your home, or on location
- lots of fun, laughter, and smiles!
Please note that prints are sold separately.
