Frequently Asked Questions
How are you handling Covid-19 safety?
I am fully vaccinated & boosted, but will continue to wear a mask during our time together. Don’t worry, you won’t have to keep your mask on during our time together. Your session can be held in your home or on location. We’ll make it work while still staying safe!
How do we book you to be our family photographer?
Booking your family photography session is easy – all it takes to secure your session date is payment of the non-refundable reservation fee (ranging from $340-$440 depending on session type), and a signed Terms & Conditions Agreement.
Are you going to have us pose in awkward, uncomfortable poses during our session?
Nope! We all want to have a fun, relaxed photo session. If you’ve booked a lifestyle portrait session, you’ll be gently guided into positions that will look natural and candid and won’t be asked to look at the camera and smile. Instead, we’ll capture your family’s story and love as authentically as possible – showing your connection with genuine laughs and affection. Documentary sessions are even easier!
Do you bring props or other set ups to the photo shoot?
I choose not to use any props or set ups in my lifestyle or documentary sessions. I feel like the focus of the session should be on your love and connection, and props can sometimes take the focus off of that connection.
What should we wear?
Don’t let clothing stress you out; this is a time to let go of looking “perfect”! I want you to be comfortable and totally yourself, so whatever you wear that makes you feel incredible is what I recommend. I do suggest staying away from logos, graphic tees, or overly busy patterns. For more info and tips on session day outfits, see this blog post!
Can we include our pets in our newborn or family session?
Pets are always welcome! If we’re having our session outside of your home, it’s a good idea to have a trusted friend or family member with you that can hold onto your pup when they aren’t needed for photos.
Do we get all of the digital files?
When you purchase your print products, you’ll automatically get the corresponding high resolution digital file.
Do you sell print products?
Yes! Three days after your session, we’ll get together for your image reveal where you’ll get the chance to see all of the best, edited images from our time together. That’s when we’ll talk about your options for print, wall art, and album purchases. You only pay for the images you absolutely adore!
What happens if my kids aren’t cooperating or don’t want to sit still?
I’m going to help take this stress off of you. You don’t need to worry about making sure your kiddos sit still. As a mom, and former teacher, I know kids have a lot of energy – that’s okay during our session! Let me do the work of making sure we get dynamic photos of your kids, and you can relax knowing that they don’t have to sit still and smile at the camera for me to grab a great photo. In fact, I’ll never ask them to just sit still and smile at me. We’ll exchange jokes, I’ll ask them about their favorite movie, and really connect with them so we can make a beautiful photo together.
