This is the perfect time for us to get to know one another. I like to keep this laid back and comfortable. Let's meet for coffee and chat!
When you book me as your photographer, I don't want to be just another vendor. I want us to become friends. When you're in front of my camera I want you to relax & when you're not I hope we're laughing or swapping cute photos of our babies (human & those with fur)
The moment you receive your images should be more exciting than anticipated. I take time to personally handcraft a special gift just for you coordinated with the details of your event.
When do sessions take place?
For outdoor sessions, I prefer to shoot an hour before sunset so start time will vary depending on the season. I recommend arriving to your session 15 minutes early to allow everyone to get warmed up and ready to go!
For studio, hospital, or at home sessions I prefer to shoot mid-morning to early afternoon to ensure we have prime lighting. Kiddos generally only last 45 minutes or less so I make sure to get all that we need within 45-60minutes.
Where do sessions take place?
Location depends on the type of session. I offer boudoir or lifestyle sessions in your home. Family or portrait sessions(maternity, senior, engagement) generally take place outdoors. We can discuss your vision during our consultation to determine if a parklike or urban setting is best. I'll share some of my favorite spots with you based on your vibe.
What should I wear?
Not sure what to wear? I can give you some ideas based on season and/or type of session. I'm also happy to share my trend boards with you for inspiration.
What happens if it rains?
If the forecast calls for rain I'll keep an eye on the hourly up to 24 hours before our scheduled session - we may have to simply adjust our meet time or possibly reschedule if the chance of rain is high. If it's just a cloudy day, that's perfect! Cloudy weather produces flattering lighting.
Will you pose me? my family?
I will set you up in the right location & pose to kick off the session. However, I aim to capture real emotion & movement so I'll instruct you to just interact with one another once we're warmed up. If the lighting isn't flattering or you're in a weird pose, I'll adjust as needed throughout the session to ensure everyone looks their best!
Do you have props?
I bring minimal props to newborn and family sessions. Everything is very neutral in color and natural in texture. I generally bring just a few basic wraps, baskets, crates, or blankets depending on the age range of the kiddos and number of family members.
Can I bring my fur babies?
Your fur babies are part of the family too so please bring them for your session if you'd like. I am definitely an animal lover!
What's included in my package?
Every session includes a private, online gallery of your images to view, print, and share with your loved ones. Additional items included with senior and wedding packages will be outlined during your consultation.
When do I get my images? Can I print them anywhere?
Your gallery link will be delivered via email within 2 weeks of your session date with a print release. LRP recommends for high quality prints.
