The Experience

Now that you've taken a look around and have gotten a feel for how and why I shoot the way I do, you've probably decided if we're a good fit for each other. If my work speaks to you and you connect with photos that are less about what we look like and more about what it's like to live and love, I would love to work with you.

Let's chat! 

You've decided you want a session? Yay! What happens next?

Book your session

You'll send your session fee to me to reserve your session and we'll set a date. Next, I'll send you a pre-session form to fill out (online) so I can get a feel for who you are, what you like, what's important for you to remember, etc. (note: it's best to contact me at least 3 weeks in advance as I only book a few sessions per month).

Session day

Every family is unique, that means every session is unique, too. My main goal is for you to have a gallery of meaningful, beautiful, artful images that feel like you and your family. For this to happen, all I need you to do is show me what your love and life look like - let your guards down, let the kids be kids, and I'll do the rest. It's really that simple. We'll either do one or a few of the things you mention in your pre-session questionnaire...or we can go completely documentary and I'll just show up and do my thing. You can expect your session to be relaxed with some fun, snuggling, maybe a bit of chaos, perhaps a tear, and a whole lot of laughter and love mixed in.

After your session

Choose a collection! All collections include the complete set of digital files from your gallery! Digital files are delivered on a rad & custom engraved wooden usb. Purchasing digital files allows clients the freedom to print unlimited copies as well as have them for archival purposes. I believe in archiving and printing our photographs to leave for future generations, so I've put together collections that include all your digital files from your gallery as well as a tangible, printed piece of your story. All you have to do is decide which collection fits your needs!

Around two weeks after your session I'll send you an email to let you know your gallery is ready to view. You'll view the gallery and decide what you want to do with your photos. Most people invest in a digital file collection - this way they have all the images from their gallery for archival purposes and can print as many copies whenever they'd like as well as having beautiful, tangible piece(s) of their story printed to display in their home. Once the decision making is done, you'll send payment and I'll send your order away to my rad professional lab. 

Receive your photos (+ other good stuff!)

You can expect your goods within 3 - 6 weeks (books & boxes take the longest). Once your order arrives, I'll send you a note to let you know your package is ready for pick-up/delivery!
