I'll look to catch strong images, not only in color, but also in composition and in content.

I want you to enjoy fine art portrait photography as much as I do! A relaxed and laid back session experience is good for both you and me (your photographer)! This is why I would like to walk you through the entire process so you know what to expect and enjoy your protrait experience.
1. Pre-session consultation
Our first phone chat or e-mail correspondence, this is when we discuss your goals for the session, the products you envision for your home, the session location and wardrobe plan. I will also provide you with my Portrait Questionnaire to fill out. This information will ensure we are all on the same page for an easy, relaxed session and it helps me to anticipate the parts of your personality that you want me to capture the most. Session fee and signed session agreement are due at the time of booking to confirm your date on the calendar. Session fee is non-refundable but may be applied as a one time courtesy to a rescheduled session with a cancellation notice no less than 24 hours.
2. Wardrobe Selection
Clothing and styling is very important in these sessions. If you need help with clothing choices, I am happy to consult! Please feel free to email me with quick phone snaps of clothing options. I recommend working from a palette of 4-5 colors that will work well with your session location and your home decor. I would suggest you bring about three outfits for you or your child.
3. portrait session
Please be ready to go at your session on time. Let kids know we will be having a fun time together! We will shoot for approximately up to two hours and then I will hand edit and prep your images for our order session, which takes place in 2-3 weeks after your session date. Before you see your images I will carefully go through all the photographs taken in your session and select the very best ones for you to view. I will then spend several hours working on them in order to make sure you look your best. The images will be color balanced and polished to remove any blemishes, they will also be adjusted to give a beautiful 'Fine Art' touch to them.
4. gallery reveal + product ordering
Ordering session is the best part! This appointment is when you will see all of your images for the first time (in a selection of color and black and white finishes) and place your order. The ordering session can be done by appointment or online. You’ll get to feel and touch the products I have on display, so you can visualize what your images will look like in the products before you purchase. Payment for your portraits is due within 48hrs after gallery reveal.
5. product delivery
Your gallery will be open for 21 days. As you wait for the delivery of your products, you'll have the opportunity to share your gallery with your friends and family. You may also order additional prints and products during this time. Your products will arrive in a beautiful package from me within 4-5 weeks from your order. If you live near me, I may hand deliver the products, because seen your reactionto how they look is the most rewarding experience I can have as a photographer.
We will stay connected. You will hear from me to see how you are doing, we will reflect on our time together, because I would like to know how you felt about the experience. I will fill you in on what I have been up to, and let you be the first to know if I run any kind of a promo. You have the ability to learn your next session at an exclusive rate by referring your friends and family to me.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Still have some questions? Here are answers to the questions we receive most frequently:
How long will my fine art portrait session last?
A fine art portrait session times vary depending on you or the child - they can last between 30 minutes and 2 hours. As a mother of two young children I am well aware that children need time. So if they need a break - we take one. I do not overbook myself so that I have plenty of time to dedicate to your family. This is also usually dependent on the age of the children. Younger children will often need more time than say teenagers.
What if my child is ill?
If you or your child is ill, then I'd ask you to let me know as soon as possible and we can postpone your session. We wouldn't dream of forcing a sick child to have a photo shoot, as this would be miserable for everyone involved. I want you and your child to feel your best so I can get a beautiful set of images for you.
Wait, do you sell digital files?
Yes we do, but hold on a second here... we believe that spending time on preparation, creating beautiful portraits, spending hours to post process them so you look your best and then handing you a USB and saying ‘bye-bye’ is not really serving you properly.
Please let us print your images at a professional lab using the correct color profiles and highest archival quality materials, we also choose the suitable paper for your images to complete the look you want to create. Allow us to finish the vision for your images by creating a beautiful art work for you. Ask yourself if and how you will print those digitals before going the DIY route.
We know you would like to share with your beautiful portraits with your family and friends, this is why complimentary social media format digitals (IG, FB, LinkedIn, etc) are included in your collection.
