What should we wear/ bring?
Wear clothes that you like and know you feel comfortable in. Solid colors and minimal patterns are best. Jewelry is nice as long as it is discrete. If you would like feel free to bring a favorite blanket, toys, or any other sentimental family mementos we can include in the photos.
Will my kids have fun?
I try to cultivate a fun and relaxed atmosphere during a photo sessions. Challenges during a session are bound happen from time to time (kids aren't always smiles and sunshine), but we roll with the punches and have a good time. I try at all costs to keep the sessions from becoming boring so I ask kids I am working with to run around and play a lot. But don't take my word for it...
"I thought we were just going to be sitting there and having to smile and stuff like that, but I actually had fun!" -Sebastian, Age 8
"I didn't know if this would be that fun, but now that I'm here and we're doing it, I'm having a lot of fun! -Toree, Age 7
What does a session include?
My family photo sessions cost $250 for a 90 minute session. The session fee includes 20 high res retouched digital images as well as a proof sheet of the images printed on archival fine art paper. All of the images are delivered within two weeks of the original shoot date. Payment for the session is due at the end of the session via cash, check, Venmo, or Chase Quickpay. Payment for prints is due upon delivery of prints.
How do I book a session?
I have a simple booking software I use for all of my session bookings. The software sends us both calendar events and makes everything easy to keep track of. Just follow the prompts under the Book a Session tab and I will confirm your request within 24 hours. After I confirm your session reservation I will follow up with you personally and answer any other questions you might have.
