capturing moments | creating memories
Getting to know your family prior to your session is important to me – it’s what allows me to capture the authentic side of you! As we plan your family session we’ll discuss the special details about your family that mean the most to you. Those details are what make us unique and they’re the things that I love to capture!
Frequently Asked Questions:
WHAT SHOULD MY FAMILY WEAR TO OUR PORTRAIT SESSION?
Before your session takes place we’ll discuss the best wardrobe options for your family. Some families would prefer to coordinate their outfits themselves. Other families like to be told specifically what items they should purchase so they don’t have to worry about it. Let me know what works best for you!
DO YOU HAVE A STYLIST THAT YOU CAN RECOMMEND FOR HAIR AND MAKEUP?
Absolutely! I refer clients to a stylist who works on-location, let me know if you’re interested and I can give you her information. Not everyone wants their hair and makeup done for their session and my advice is – whatever floats your boat! Your session is all about you so do whatever you are comfortable with. If you do opt to have your hair and makeup done just let me know so we can schedule the time of your session accordingly.
WHAT TIME OF DAY IS BEST FOR FAMILY PORTRAITS?
As the sun gets higher in the sky lighting becomes harsher, casting shadows that can be unflattering. To avoid this I prefer to start sessions a few hours before the sun goes down which is when the light is optimal. That being said, I do understand that the evenings do not work best for all families. If this is the case for you just let me know and we will come up with an alternative time!
HOW CAN I PREPARE MY YOUNG KIDS TO GET THEIR PICTURES TAKEN?
During the week leading up to your session, talk the session up to your kids so they can get excited. We will be having tons of fun so it will be something for them to look forward to! Of course it never hurts to tell them there will be a reward at the end of their session! Whether that’s a trip to get ice cream or a few minutes on the playground.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO GET MY PHOTOS?
Two weeks following your session I will mail out a custom USB drive will all of your final images. During the two weeks that it takes for me to edit your images I will be posting sneak peeks on social media!
DO YOU SELL PRINTS & OTHER PHOTO PRODUCTS?
I sure do! If you’re interested in purchasing prints or other photo products such as wall art, photo albums, unique gifts and more just let me know and I can send you pricing. I use a professional printing lab that works exclusively with photographers allowing me to deliver products with exceptional quality.
