everything you need to know about booking your session

In my oh so humble opinion, the photo sessions I book for my own family are the greatest gift I give myself all year. (Oh and actually gifting another loved one a session makes you the absolute best gift giver of all time!) These moments of your family beginning and growing are some of the most fleeting and precious: the bliss of engagement, the anticipation of pregnancy, the sweet oxytocin overload of newborns, the goofiness of babies, the curiosity of toddlers, the blinding speed of little kids turning into big kids and big kids into teens. IT. GOES. SO. FAST. Investing in a session is your way to go back in time and feel those moments again and again!

Frequently Asked Questions...

Let's debunk all the wondering that is stressing you out!

What if my kids misbehave?

I say this with all seriousness: I am not worried about your kids. As a mom of six kids under the age of eight, I promise I can handle your crazy. I perform very well in chaos. I am not seeking any sort of perfect behavior. I am not interested in the forced smile of a child who would literally rather be anywhere else. I want their fun, their adventure, and yes, even their mischief. Our session is a chance for you and your family to explore a new, fun place. I let the kids lead a lot of the time, and that results in a gallery of images that look like them and you--your family and their authentic personalities...just in complimentary outfits with a beautiful scenic backdrop. ;) Might there be a meltdown? Perhaps. But you know what you'll do? Scoop them up, kiss away the tears, and snuggle close, just as you've done a hundred times before because that's the season you're in. And I'll sneak a few shots so you can remember the taste of the tears and the heat of their chubby cheek on your neck ten years from now when they're "too cool for snuggles". I promise the only complaining I usually get is when the session is over and they're not ready for the fun to end!

What do we wear?

My most asked question by far, and the place I love to help you the most in getting ready for our session! My motto is complimentary over coordinating. Trust me, I have been in the white polos and khaki's and the matching buffalo plaid. But those pictures? They don't look like my family. My goal is to help you find pieces that both look like you and your family and deepen the beauty of the session! I'll reveal all my magic tricks to make that happen after you book, including my style guide, personalized styling service, and access to borrow from my ever-growing client wardrobe! We will work together to create a complete cohesive look for your family from head to toe!

So how does the booking process work?

I try my hardest to take as much of the guesswork and stress out of the process as I can from start to finish. Once you fill out the contact form below I will reach out so we can figure out the when and where of your dream session! I send you your contract and a questionnaire so I can get to know your family. Once you send those back and pay the deposit, the real fun begins and we work together to bring your dream to life. We have a consult to discuss exactly what you're hoping for and ease any nerves, we put together your family look to have you feeling confident and beautiful! Then all that's left for you to do is show up for an evening of fun with your favorite people (plus me and my camera)!

When will I receive my images?

Within three weeks of your session, you will receive the link to your personal gallery of hand-edited images. From there you can download the digitals as well as order prints. You receive a print release to print the images at a lab of your choosing as well. Heirloom albums and gallery walls can also be created for an additional fee. I strive to beat that timeline and most times do, but it also leaves me a little wiggle room for when life throws some extra chaos our way.
