What to Expect
You booked a photo session for your family, but now what?
Preparing yourself and your family for a photography session can seem a little overwhelming. From what to wear, what to bring along, worrying about whether or not your kids will cooperate. Don't worry! I have created a few things for you to help keep you at ease!
Planning Your Session
To book your session, 30% of the package price is due at booking to reserve your date and time. Once this is paid, I send over a session prep guide with tons of tips and tricks on how to prepare your family for your session. Along with the prep guide will also be a questionnaire to help myself prepare for your session so we can find the perfect location that fits your vision.
Also included is access to a personalized styling assistant. This service is really awesome. How it works is you will enter the ages and gender of all participating family members, choose a style, and a color scheme. From there, it will give you tons of options for you to either purchase directly from there or use as inspiration while shopping.
During the Session
During my sessions, I use a series of prompts to create those real moments. This also helps the images look a little less posed and a lot more natural. We will knock out those "say cheese" photos right away so we are able to have fun during the rest of your session. If you are worried about having a difficult time getting comfortable in front of the camera, don't worry! I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help break the ice. I focus on the little in between moments from the way a little boy wraps his arms around his momma, the laughter between siblings, and the sweet loving moments between mom and dad.
To create those golden tones and sun flares, my sessions do take place in the evenings near sunset. This could be as late as 8 pm in the summer and earlier in the spring. Please plan accordingly if this may interfere with your child's bedtime schedule.
All packages include at 48 hour sneak peek of your session which will be sent via email. Your final gallery will be delivered within 2-3 weeks of your session date. All packages include a set number of images, which you will choose from the full gallery.
