Where will we shoot the session?
That’s up to you and me to decide. A place with good light, a reasonably uncluttered background, and space that allows you/your children to be comfortable and be yourself/themselves, are the main things I look for when choosing a spot. This can be a variety of places (your backyard, an empty field, your house, a broken down building, alleys, a park, etc.), which we can discuss on the phone/through email after we’ve set a date for the session.
What should we wear?
Something you feel comfortable in. My sessions aren’t about holding still and looking flawless, they’re about capturing you being you. Sometimes I have my subjects lay in the grass, run through fields, climb on top of trains or into abandoned buildings. Keep that in mind when choosing.
Feel free to browse my evolving board of “what to wear” ideas on Pinterest:
What should I bring?
I don’t often include any “props” in my photo sessions, but every once in awhile it can be fun to do a some shots with a couple of appropriate additions. I love doing “action shots” so if you and your fiance like to ride bikes together, bring the bikes and we’ll do shots of you riding together. If your family loves eating ice cream together, let’s plan a trip to the ice cream parlor for some ice-cream eating shots. We can talk about this in more depth when you book the session. If you have ideas or requests please let me know. **For families with young children, plan on also bringing a couple of snacks or diversions for your child just in case we need to take a break.
When will I see my images?
You’ll see your images in a password-protected online proofing gallery about 1-2 weeks after your session. The proofing gallery is open for three days, so I’ll let you decide what three-day window of time is most convenient for you to view and order your images. Most prints and products will be ready within two weeks of your order, though custom-designed albums and a few other products require more time. If you’re on a tight deadline and need to see your images/receive your prints sooner, please inquire for rush rates.
How much do prints cost?
I offer a variety of print sizes and packages. A la carte pricing begins at $45, package pricing begins at $300. To find out more about products offered, please contact me.
