What to Expect

 

If you’ve never hired a professional photographer before, the whole process could feel a little intimidating.

That’s where I come in! I’m always here to answer your questions – large or small – so that you walk into your session fully confident and excited.

Click through these slides to learn about the planning process, what the session will look like, and when you can expect to see your beautiful memories.

First Steps

 

After receiving your initial inqury, I work with you to find the best date and time of day for your experience. Once those details are hammered out, we lock your session in place with a portrait agreement and retainer.

In the time left before your session date, I’m there to answer any questions you may have about styling or custom photo requests!

The Session

 

Let’s get the party started! Throughout the session, I’m carefully selecting the best angles and spots on the location in order to provide you with a variety of images in your final gallery. I also give plenty of directions on how to stand and where to place your hands. No stress if you are a brand new model!

Delivery

 

The moment you’ve been waiting for! You’ve received the email announcing your online gallery is ready and you click to view.

For those who have purchased The Deluxe package, now is the time to view and download your beautiful memories in all of their magical glory. These photos are ready within 2 weeks of your session date.

For those who purchased The Classic or The Mini, your online gallery includes all available images. You then select the number of photos included in your package, and then I will have the retouched images delivered to you within 2 weeks of your final selection.

Timeless Keepsakes

 

Every online gallery includes the option to easily turn your memories into gorgeous wall art. When you order through the gallery, not only are you investing in professional printing quality and material, but you will also be receiving the most color accurate product possible as my editing screen is calibrated with my professional distributor.
