Before and After Your Session


Before Your Session:

Prior to booking your session, I will have you fill out a new client questionnaire and contract. Your session isn’t booked until the contract and retainer has been paid ($75 retainer will go towards your session fee). The questionnaire allows me to get to know you a bit better, know your style, and what sort of products you are hoping for in the end. If possible, I love meeting over coffee to discuss the details for your session, but because life is so busy, that isn’t always possible. Which is why the questionnaire is so helpful 🙂

After that, we will decide where you want to go for your session. A lot of times, when my client isn’t sure where they want to go, I will go location scouting and see if I can come up with some fun, new locations. If you schedule a studio session, I will ask that you pick 2-3 backdrops from my backdrop selection so I can have everything set up once you get here.

I do ask that if you have a studio session scheduled, that you bring only those who are being photographed (2-3 children at most with one or two adults including yourself). My home studio is not large enough to accommodate a large number of people, and most importantly, small children become overwhelmed and over-stimulated very easily.

After Your Session

After your session is over, I will post a few sneak peeks on Facebook for you to share with friends and family. One I am finished choosing the best images from your session, I will upload them into a private, password protected gallery where you may view and purchase your images. Depending on what time of the year it is, my turn around time is usually 1-2 weeks. If you have purchased the all inclusive digital package, the gallery will be the perfect opportunity to share your session with friends and family, or to purchase some beautiful wall prints for your home. Your gallery will be available for 2 weeks only, so be sure to purchase your prints/digital images during that time frame. Then, after your purchases have been made and your Prints/USB/Albums arrive, I will deliver them to you 🙂

I absolutely love what I do, and I cannot wait to work with you and your family!
