Let's Plan!
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, we will discuss all of the details via e-mail.. We would cover everything from the date and time of your session to coordinating your outfits or setup if any.  For some of the planning, I will send over a questionnaire to get us started.  These really help me keep organized and are a one-stop place for you to easily submit responses and questions you might have.


If your session is a newborn or studio maternity  we will have that held indoors at my studio which is located in Williamsport near Pennsylvania College of Technology at the Pajama Factory. Sessions are generally scheduled on weekdays during the day.

All other non-studio sessions will be held at an agreed upon outdoor location. This could be a park, an urban setting, or a field. This is all discussed during the planning piece.

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.

Session Time

Session time varies depending on which session is booked.  A Newborn Session may run approximately 2.5 hours while a Petite runs approximately 1 hour in duration. With this type of photography, there isn't a magic number of session duration, but rather there is a general amount of setups for each and I will spend as much time as needed to ensure you receive a beautiful gallery.

All other sessions are specified with a time of 60 minutes. For outdoor sessions we will typically schedule the start time to be within a few hours after sunrise or a few hours before sunset - this allows me to capture that beautifully warm sunlight for your images which is shown throughout my portfolio.

After Your Session

Newborn galleries tend to take me about 3 weeks to process and other portrait sessions take about 2 weeks to process.

We can also schedule a date and time where you can come to my studio where I can go through the images with you one-by-one to choose your favorites. 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!  Seriously, I'm here to capture your family's milestones and help you preserve those memories.

All sessions receive a secure link to an online gallery where you'll be able to view/download/print your high-resolution images.  If you'd like to have a USB backup of the files, let me know.
