I want you to be completely confident when you hire me that you are hiring the best photographer for your family, so I start every session, before you even book, with a pre-consultation. Don't worry, I know you don't have the time to meet with me for an hour to discuss all of the things which is why I do this via email.
Since my goal is to create family images for you to HANG in your home I start by asking you to send me an image of the room or rooms where you want to hang your artwork. I'll reply with my recommendations of what clothing colors would look great with the colors of your space, a few wall art layouts that I think you might love with pricing info for that gallery and my favorite locations for your session to match the look of your room!
If you love what you see let me know and I'll email you the invoice for the $200 session fee to get your session booked.
The day of your session we will meet 1-2 hours before sunset for the perfect golden light for your session (limited morning sessions available in select shady locations). I do not time my sessions, I base the meeting time on the type of session and the number and age of the participants to make sure I have enough time to get the portraits needed for your gallery with a variety of options for each piece. We will them shoot until we have all the images we need for an amazing wall art display for your home!
For the typical family or children's session, I will start with a few posed portraits and then move into more relaxed playful images of your family and children.
My sessions are flexible to my client's needs and desires so please let me know if there is a particular type of image you really want in your gallery.
A few weeks after your session I'll come to your home (or you can come to me) for your selections appointment to show you your finished images and put your favorites into the gallery layout you chose before the session.
If you see the images and decide you want a different gallery no problem, I can help you create that then as well.
At this time we will pick up all wall art, gifts and gift prints you need and payment for those items will be due that day.
After your selections appointment, I will place your order, depending on the type, number and sizes of your pieces your gallery can take up to 4 weeks to arrive and for me to deliver it to you.
As soon as it arrives I will check all of your pieces to make sure they are top quality, wrap them up and deliver them directly to your home.
Need help hanging them? I am more than happy to stay to help put them on your wall as well to make sure you are enjoying them every day!
The session fee for family, children’s, newborn or maternity sessions is $200 and is due at the time of booking to hold your session time and date.
