You just have to live and life will give you pictures.
— Henri Cartier-Bresson

Here's a little information about the general process, let me know if you have more questions!

Book your session:

  • Send an inquiry via my contact page or an email to

  • To lock in your preferred date and time, please send payment for your session fee (I will send you the link for payment once we decide on time and date) and a signed client agreement.

  • To help me better prepare for our session, please fill out a quick client questionnaire! This helps me get to know you better and provide images that suit your needs the most.

During the session

  • Be ready by your session time...the way you want. For most people, that's yogurt and peanut butter off faces...but that doesn't mean it has to be that way. Some want their messy lives captured as is and that's perfectly great too!

  • Relax, enjoy, and play. Interact with your family.  The best photographs are always of the moments in between all the action.  I will provide some direction but my primary job is to be a fly on the wall.  Because everyone loves a good, normal family portrait, I will always allocate a small portion of the time for that. 

  • If your child/children aren't looking at the camera and/or throwing a tantrum, don't worry! It happens at some point in almost all sessions and I'll take care of it..usually with treats, jokes, games, and a bit of time.  :)

After the session

  • Following your session, I will reach out to schedule your viewing and ordering session. You'll see all the images from your session, check out print and product options, and I can help you brainstorm on how to get your favorite images printed and displayed.  All prints are 30% off during the viewing and ordering session!

  • Your online gallery will be active for nine months during which you will be able to share your gallery with your family, purchase additional prints, digital files, albums, and other products.
