The Client Experience

With so many photographers to choose from, what makes my sessions stand out? If my unique approach to family photography speaks to you, let me share with you more about my special client experience.

 

Before your session: Planning

I offer a boutique experience and take time to plan your session with you from start to finish. Once you decide to book a session, we will choose a date and I will send you a planning questionnaire for me to get to know you better. I also love to connect via a quick phone call to touch base before our session so we feel familiar with each other. I want you to feel perfectly at ease with me as your photographer. We will also work together to choose the perfect location that fits your style.

I provide complimentary wardrobe consultation to help you feel your best and get the look you want from your session, so you can email me with outfit ideas or ask for suggestions before your session! 
 

During your session: Relax and connect

My sessions are relaxed and playful- think of this as a fun outing with your family, and a chance to give your little ones those extra kisses and snuggles they crave all day long. Children may need time to warm up and I allow them the space they need to be themselves. 

Allowing the freedom to play and explore, chat and be silly, your children will feel relaxed while I observe and capture your family'’s personality and joy. 

Rather than rely on any props, I use light, interaction, and emotion to tell stories and make art out of your everyday. Your session will take place during the hours of optimal soft light to allow me to create emotional imagery. I start all of my outdoor sessions within 2 hours of sunset for the most flattering, dreamy light. In-home sessions generally take place in the mornings. If it rains we will reschedule. 
 

After your session: Selecting the perfect products

I believe very strongly that all clients should leave a session with tangible and professional artwork to display from a quality lab. Often we spend a great deal of time planning for a portrait session and then never get around to using the beautiful digital files we've invested in. 

I am a full-service photographer which means I provide access to heirloom museum quality prints, fine art albums, and framed wall art because my clients value professional quality artwork to display in their homes. My clients value both digital files AND a completed job. I believe very strongly in offering you the FULL service, from planning your session to providing you with beautiful artwork that is ready to display in your home. It's so important to me to offer tangible, luxury artwork for you to enjoy off the computer and on your walls.

Within 2-3 weeks of your session, you will receive an email letting you know that your images are ready for viewing! You will be able to view your images in a beautiful online gallery with a storefront that allows you to purchase boutique products directly from me.  If you'd like to schedule either an in-home or phone consultation where we can review your pictures together I am happy to do so to be available to help you choose from the beautiful products. This complimentary (and optional) in-home  wall-art consultation is available so that you can touch real samples from my product line and I can help you choose perfectly-sized art for your home. 

Your online gallery will be open for orders for one week and I am available during that time to assist you with your selections. All orders must be placed within that time.
