Whisical. Colorful. Lifestyle Portraiture.
When should I schedule my session?
~ I tend to schedule as far out as 4 months and fill-up fast, please email me for availability.
(Please know that Fall/Christmas appointments fill up *super* fast.)
~ For maternity sessions, please contact me about half way thru your pregnancy to book your
appointment for about 3-6 weeks before your due date.
~ For newborns, please email me while you are pregnant so I can pencil in your due date.
The session works best within the first 10 days after being born…. the earlier the better!
When do I get to see my images?
~ For portrait sessions, my turn around time is 3 weeks after the date of the session.
~ For Weddings, about 6-8 weeks.
How do I view my images?
You can view them by clicking here or on the above “Clients” tab, then ”Proofing”… and then type in your password that I emailed you. You will have 2 weeks to view your images. After 2 weeks the images are archieved and there is a $25 fee to have them reloaded online.
How do I order?
I highly recommend a one-on-one consultation to insure all of your questions are answered fully and to see samples of the treasures you are purchasing. I do know that schedules are busy and distance can be an issue, so I also offer ordering via email. If you need to order that one extra print that you forgot about… or if you’re extended family/friend and wish to purchase a print from a family member’s session or a wedding, please click here.
What should my family wear?
The more color the better!!! I tell people to pick 3-4 colors and to mix it up. Don’t be matchy-matchy! (I mean… do you ever walk around town all dressed alike? No! So why hang that on the wall?) I also recommend to steer away from large chunks of white &/or black… as those colors can dull an image and not give it POP. Accessories are great too… scarves, hats, boots, jewelry, etc… Check out some ideas on Pinterest.
How do I prepare for my session?
Let’s face it, most people don’t get pictures done that often, so why regret them?!?! I highly recommend to enjoy a little time at your salon…. get your hair done & make-up done… and come feeling fabulous…. it WILL show in your pics and you WILL love the outcome sooo much more!
What time of day do you schedule sessions?
I revolve most sessions around sunrise and sunset. With that… times tend to change as seasons do. Please use this calendar here for an estimate, but I will email you a final time once you’ve booked your session. I, personally, crave the gorgeous orange glow of a sunset… so if you do too, then book me for an evening session and we’ll keep our fingers crossed for a clear sky!
Newborn sessions are usually held mid-day in-studio.
Who provides the props?
I have TONS of props and during the planning process of your session I will get details of the colors you’re wearing and your style… and I will then plan props around that. If you see something in my portfolio that you like, please let me know. I also HIGHLY encourage for clients to bring their own props! This makes the images more personal in bringing out one’s personality. PLUS… if you have a fun funky chair, please bring it… I LOVE chairs!!!!
How often should I have pictures done?
~ Ideally, family portraits about once a year, kids twice a year, and special occations.
~ Kids under 2 years old… newborn, 4m, 8m, 12m, 18m, 2 year….. because they grow so fast!
