The best thing I can do for you is to lay out this whole process and make it easy to understand. I know that this may be your first experience purchasing a custom photography session or that I most likely do things different than you’ve experienced in the past. My system is set up so that you get to know me well enough that you feel awesome about your choice to work with me. I run my business with quality over quantity from the beginning. Each client matters and gets all the time and attention needed so that everything is perfect! Whether your child is still growing in your belly or graduating from kindergarten, I understand the importance of trusting those working with the people most treasured by you.
Here’s a quick glance of the 4 steps to your killer session!
Book + Collaborate: Let’s face it, there are still a lot of decisions to be made after you’ve made the big one of who to hire. I give you the chance to ask any questions, get acquainted with my products and bounce around any photo session ideas you want to iron out. I want you to feel completely confident in your decision to work with me. When you’re ready to book you’ll pay the retainer fee and we’ll choose your shoot date. In the weeks leading up to your shoot we will work together to pick the perfect style and location to get you the photos you want.
SHOOT!: All the details are set, you’re looking beautiful as ever and away we go! Depending on your session type we will spend anywhere from 2-4 hours with newborns. The amount of time is solely based on how cooperative the babies and sibling choose to be. I truly follow their lead and we never rush them into doing anything they don’t want to do. Babies require lots of time to eat and snuggle in order to get the curled up and sleepy photos we all love so we give them all of our time and patience. This part can be nerve-wracking, but I’ll do my best to make you feel awesome and natural in front of the camera. Families get up to an hour and a half on-location. Mini maternity and baby sessions are 45 minutes.
Image Premier + Ordering Session: At the time we set up your session date you have the option to choose a tentative day to meet up once the photos are ready. This is typically 3 weeks after the shoot. Each session can expect to see a minimum of 30 hand-edited images in your gallery at this time. This session will happen in your home so you’ll have the opportunity to choose your favorites and order your prints and products with me helping you along with each step. You’ll have me to answer questions and help you choose the right products for your walls! Expect to spend about an hour at this meeting. If you are not choosing this option you can expect your digital gallery to be done in 2-3 weeks.
Product Delivery: Some products can be produced quickly and others take more time. Once your order has been placed I will give you an estimated delivery time. I have all products sent directly to me to ensure they are exactly as we expected and I will then deliver them to you in person.
