Kids and Family

It’s the day of my session what, exactly should I expect

If this is your family’s first time working with a professional photographer, it can be difficult to know what to expect. What should I bring? Will there be enough time to get the perfect picture? Will my child feel uncomfortable in front of the camera? I completely understand these feelings of concern; you are not alone! I am here to work for and with you to make your session as stress-free as possible. Remember, this is supposed to be fun!

My method of working is simple: I tailor my photography to you and your family. Each session is a unique experience, built from the ground up just for you. In our initial consultation, we’ll discuss things like the family schedule, favorite locations, and attention spans to make your photo day a smashing success. This is your day to relax and enjoy your family; I’ll do the rest!

Scheduling

Planning in advance is the key to success! If your family or child has a daily routine, it’s best to schedule the photo session in a way that works with, not against, this routine. If your child has a certain nap time, we’ll plan the shoot to be either before or after she wakes up to prevent tantrums and fatigue. If your baby generally sleeps during the afternoon, a morning session may be best. I am here to make your session a success, and will work with you individually to find a time and place that fits the family!

Do I offer a CD of images? 

Yes, I do provide digital files of anything you purchase for you to use on Facebook, your phone or email, so you can have these images to share with your friends, but as far as high resolution files, people come to me for my expertise and my ability to create perfect art for their homes and that is what makes me different. Part of what makes me better is the quality of my art work. If I gave the high res images I know people will not be able to process the image and achieve the same level of quality and that is why I only give a finished product that I am proud of.

How much is the Photo Session?

The family photo session is $175. Session fee pays for the photographer’s time and talent only.

How do I pay for my order?

I accept all major credit cards, checks or cash. Orders will not be placed until payment is received in full.
