The booking process is quite simple. First, reach out via email or a phone call to receive my information packet with full pricing details. Be sure to tell me what type of session you are interested in, your due date, and it's helpful to include a good time for me to call you.
Next, we'll chat about dates, location options, colors for your newborn session and other details.
Once we have a date set, I'll send a standard contract and invoice for the session fee - both may be taken care of online. Once booking is complete, I will send along additional materials to help you prepare for your session, including a family styling guide. Newborn clients can also expect a questionaire to help me prepare.
After your session we will meet in-person for viewing and ordering. Proofs are typically ready within two weeks, and I'll have a variety of prints, albums, frames and other goodies on hand to show you. Package orders must be placed during our appointment, but add-ons are available any time in the future.
Timing is important. I schedule family sessions during "golden hour", meaning just before sunset. The late afternoon/evening sun offers the prettiest light quality and adds a soft touch to your final images.
Family sessions are meant to feel casual, yet it's a great excuse to break out a pretty dress and shoes. While most parents want photos of their smiling families, I also like to incorporate more candid moments into your session. Running or rambunctious kiddos never get in trouble on my shoots!
It's NEVER too early to book, especially if you are interested in a newborn session. Contact me for details!
