the experience

In order to bring out authentic expressions, photo sessions are casual and relaxed by design and starts with me getting acquainted with your family before I even take out my camera.

Before your session, we have a pre-consultation meeting (either over the phone or in person) to discuss everything about your session. I will get to know about you and your children, get a sense of your personal style and answer any questions you might have. We will also talk about about location options and clothing choices.

All photo sessions take place at a location of your choice and use natural light. Some clients prefer to have the session at home, where everyone is comfortable and you have everything you could need (extra clothing, familiar toys) while others select a place that is meaningful or where they like to spend time. I love discovering new places with clients, so if you have a special location or idea in mind, let’s talk about it! The time of day we schedule your session will depend on the location you choose and the available light during the time of year. Indoor sessions are best when scheduled in the late morning while outdoor sessions are best in the last few hours before sunset.

A typical session can last anywhere from one to two hours, but there is no set time limit. I build in time time for snacks, nursing/feeding the baby, and clothing changes during your session. Being a mother myself, I understand the importance of keeping everyone happy!
