What to Expect

What to Expect

I am a custom portrait photographer which means that, doggonit, we’re going to get the photos you want, and we’re gonna have fun doing it!

In our pre-session consultation, we will talk about what your needs are (it’s OK to be needy here) , and what your vision is ( I can be your eyes if you are visionless).  If you know a location you want to use, awesome! If not, I can recommend a few. We will set a date and time.  We will talk about what to wear. We will discuss what makes you and your family laugh, your loves, your dislikes, etc. Mainly, I want to get to know you before we have our session so we can be comfortable and have fun from the get-go when we start shooting!

During your session, we will start with some poses and then we will go natural for the middle and end. I like to see  interactions between family members, but sometimes it takes a few shots to get everyone loosened up for the camera. If you have small children (or husbands), I recommend bringing them snacks and drinks. Oftentimes I will have a bribe or two with me, but I will ask your permission before initiating bribe sequence. We will keep it light-hearted and move around the location to try different things. I may have a Mom and Dad time-out so that just the kids and I can have a little camera time. Sometimes their little personalities shine without an audience, and Mom and Dad enjoy a break as well.

Once your session is over, you can expect your finished online gallery to be up and running in around 2-3 weeks. You may make your included print selections along with any other orders for press products, albums, and digital files from your gallery and I will put in the order for you. Once I have everything ready, I’ll send you a pretty package all tied up with possibly a treat or two thrown in for good measure. A celebratory dance may be in order once you have everything finished and in your hands. I will do my best to make sure you love the end result of your time with me!

good times
