From start to finish I always work to help you feel well informed & comfortable. With that said, let’s start from the beginning of your session experience with me.
Whether it’s meeting for tea or coffee or a phone call, we will have a pre-session consultation going over all the details of our time together. This consultation will be the best time for you to ask any questions you have about outfits, locations, to go over any special requests, and things that will make your session stress free and enjoyable. Please ask any questions you can think of! This is also a time for me to get to know a little about you, and for you to get to know a little bit about myself!
For small children and those a little bit shy, this is the perfect time for them to meet me and become more comfortable with the black thing I carry around (my camera). I want them to forget there is a camera in my hand and to enjoy the setting we place them in.
The next step will be the session itself. It is best to arrive and be ready about 15 minutes before our session begins to make sure we’ve gone over any last minute details and to also make sure outfits, hair, etc. are all set and ready to go! The sessions can be anywhere from 1-4 hours, depending on the kind of session, yearbook sessions to multiple locations and studio set-ups.
In my sessions, I always like to make sure we capture the real emotions of you, your family and/or children. Some of the best photos may be the non-posed candid images. I will take a wide variety of images shot from start to finish making sure we accomplish all that we can in your session with me. I love to help you relax and enjoy your session. I am a very patient person and will take my time being sure not to rush anything, especially with the little ones. Being a mom of five, I understand all that may occur with children and infants, so don’t worry about little ones who don’t like their picture taken, messes, or mishaps. Not many two-year-olds tolerate sitting in a pose for more than 2 seconds anyway. Life is far too interesting for that, right!? I have some tricks up my sleeve and I would love to work with you.
My sessions are very personable with only one photographer and sometimes an assistant. I thoroughly enjoy and love what I do. My goal is for you and or your family to enjoy your session with me as much or more than I do.
After every session, I make sure to go over any other details or questions you may have for me.
When your images are done, typically between 2 and 3 weeks, I will call or email you for a viewing of your images. We can then get together and view all the possibilities of taking your touchable memories home. At this meeting, I will also give you the web address and password of your own private gallery website for you to share and keep.
Your privacy is very important to me. If I would like to use your images for building my portfolio, I will ask if you wouldn’t mind filling out a model release form first.
I cannot wait to meet YOU.
