Building relationships is very important to me – it’s also a very important step in being able to capture those genuine moments during your session. Before your session, I like to talk with you via phone or email about your vision for your session. This is where we would plan everything from outfits to color schemes to locations you may have in mind. At this time we would also schedule a date and time that works well for everyone.
I specialize in natural light photography. Most likely, your session will take place outdoors in a location that we both agree upon. This could be a park, an urban setting, or a field. The goal is for you to feel as comfortable as possible. If there is a location that speaks to you, let’s talk about it! I am open to pretty much anything. If you are unsure about a location – no worries! I have a few of my favorite spots we can always go to. Newborn sessions either take place at your home or mine where I set up my studio with various backdrops and props. I do use lighting equipment for newborn sessions in order to achieve a balanced and more controlled light source.
Most session types typically last about an hour. Newborn Sessions can run anywhere from 2-4 hours. We will typically schedule your session a few hours after sunrise or a few hours before sunset – this allows me to capture that beautifully warm sunlight for your images.
During Your Session
While at your photo session, be prepared to have fun! I like to ask you if you have any specific poses in mind or specific must-have shots that we may not have covered in our prior communication. I usually do this right away so that I can get an idea of where we can do certain things at the location we are photographing at. Otherwise, I do come prepared to your session with ideas to complete your photography session vision.Aside from that, I will do just about anything to get your child’s attention. I may or may not have wore sticks in my hair pretending to be a reindeer just to get a toddler to look at me last fall. HAHA.
After Your Session
Within the first couple of days following your session, you can expect to see a sneak peek or two on Facebook! Approximately 2 weeks after your session (3 weeks for newborns, 4-6 weeks for weddings), you will receive an email from me with a link to your online gallery. From there, you will let me know which image(s) you’d like for your included print(s) as well as any other beautiful products you’d like to order. If you’d prefer, we can also schedule a date and time where I would pack all of my goodies up and meet you at your home to view your finished images on a slideshow. I’ll then be able to help you design one-of-a-kind pieces of art to display on your walls, coffee tables, shelves and more!
