ALL ABOUT YOUR PORTRAIT SESSION

the details

01

I want to hear all about your family and what you envision for your family portraits! At this stage, we'll discuss session availability, location options, and any special requests you might have.
If you decide that we're a good fit, the next step is securing your session date and time with a deposit and signed portrait agreement.

Once your session is booked, you'll get exclusive access to my family style guide, complete with tips on how to choose a cohesive color scheme, classic outfit ideas for the whole family, and my recommendations on where to shop.
Fun fact: I majored in textiles and apparel in college, and I love helping families coordinate outfits!

Bring your best smile and a sense of adventure as we create magic together! Throughout the session, I will lightly direct you to get the most beautiful lighting, the most flattering yet natural posing, and the most cohesive backdrops.
Your resulting gallery will include the perfect mix of candid, lifestyle photos, as well as some more traditional, smiling-at-camera photos.

After your session, you will have the opportunity to buy prints and other printed products (e.g., canvases) directly through the online gallery. Printing and displaying your photos gives you the freedom to enjoy them anytime in your home, and not just on your screen!

the process

I believe that the perfect portrait session includes a balance between lightly directed, candid-style shots, and traditional, eyes-on-the-camera shots. Traditional portraits sometimes get a bad rap nowadays, but they don't have to be stuffy or canned - I promise, I won't make you feel like you're recreating your cap-and-gown yearbook photo! ;)

My aesthetic can be described as warm, vibrant, and luminous. I love shooting in sunny weather whenever possible, but cloudy days have their own unique beauty as well! No matter the weather, you can be confident that I am positioning you in the most flattering light for consistent, beautiful results.
