What to expect


When  you’re ready to book your session, you’ll receive an invoice via email for the retainer fee, as well as a link to some information specific to your type of session.  Once your retainer fee is paid, you’ll be placed on my schedule and your date will be reserved.  Retainer fees will be credited toward your session fee.  The remaining balance is due on or before the date of your session.

Pre-Session Consultation

Your pre-session consultation will be held via phone or email prior to your session. During the consultation, we’ll discuss what you envision for your session, locations, props (if any) you’d like to incorporate, and wardrobe choices.  If you need help with your wardrobe, I will be glad to help!

Your Portrait Session

It’s always a good idea to arrive a few minutes early, as there are always last minute details that will need to be taken care of.  It also gives little ones a chance to warm up to me before we begin the session.  Because we are scheduling our time to ensure the best light, every minute of sunlight counts!

Your Newborn Session

Newborn sessions typically last between 1.5 to 3.5 hours.  I provide all props and backdrops, however, if there is something you’d like to incorporate into your baby’s session, please mention it during your pre-session consultation!  I love to use sentimental and meaningful items during newborn sessions.  We are on baby’s schedule, so feeding and cuddling breaks will be taken as baby needs.  A newborn preparation packet will be emailed to you approximately three days prior to your session.

Your Image Gallery

Within 3 weeks of your session, I will notify you that your images are ready for viewing.  Your password protected image gallery will be activated for two weeks.  During this time, you will have access to my professional print lab.  I am able to offer you the option of printing professionally to ensure your prints match as closely as possible to what you’re viewing on your computer screen.  If a full digital gallery has been purchased, you’ll also be able to directly download your digital files from your gallery to allow for immediate use.

Your Final Product

Orders are delivered within 3-6 weeks from your session date.  Your order will be delivered directly to your doorstep, ready to be enjoyed straight out of the packaging.
