I am so glad that you are here! I believe in treating clients as if they are family and spending more than one session with my clients. I believe in high quality, emotive images that will last you a life time. I believe in laughing, having a great time and doing life together. I believe in investing in Mamas. Loving on babies, and playing with children. I want to spend time with you as you when you are expecting your first baby, and as your family grows adding more siblings into the mix. You see, my favorite time is when your big kiddos, run up and give me a hug because they enjoy our time together.
I believe that portraits belong on walls and not digital folders located on a cluttered computer desktop. I along with so many other families previously, would have pictures taken and never print them. I wish I had someone to hold my hand through the entire process from designing the session, thinking through art for my walls and albums for my little ones to look through. Studies show, that children really enjoy seeing pictures around their house. As an adult, I still love going home to my parents house, and looking through all of our pictures from my childhood. The smells and feelings come rushing back as if briefly you are back in that moment. I am a big encourager to freeze time if only for a few moments. Because, there is one thing that I know that being a Mama has taught me. Time just does not stand still. It goes rushing by and often leaves you grasping for when your babies were tiny.
Session Planning and Booking
So you are interested in a session! I'm so glad you are here! During the planning stage, we will figure out what you are wanting for artwork, albums, prints and more. We can even use your own home for design ideas! How cool is that? I am here to help you along throughout this whole process! Once you decide that I am the right fit for your family, we will book your session and collect your deposit and sign the contract. Get ready, because here comes all of the fun!
This is where we have a blast! We have fun and do life together, I often tell clients that my sessions are like hanging out with a good friend. We play, we capture emotive images, and we design images that you will be proud to hang up on the walls of your home. My sessions are a good mix of candid/emotive images with a sprinkle of the posy images that are often seen on Christmas cards.
Proofing Gallery and Delivery
Within a week from our session, you will receive a proofing gallery to pick your favorite images. After that, I will edit and send back your favorites, typically within 3 weeks. However, you are always able to upgrade at this stage if you just can't narrow it down. While, I do online galleries, I am here to help you every stage of the way to find the perfect work of art for your home. I don't just want images on a online gallery that are never printed. We all like seeing ourselves dolled up, at our best. I know that every time our kiddos walk past their pictures on the wall, their faces just light up. I want the same for your family!
When will I get my portraits back?
You will receive your gallery within 3-4 weeks.
How will I get my pictures?
You will be able to pick your favorites once your proofing gallery has been delivered. After they are selected, your gallery will be delivered on an online gallery and any prints or products that have been will be ordered and delivered when they arrive from the professional lab.
Do you have a studio?
Yes. We have a studio that ready to do newborns, maternity and milestone sessions.
