Before Your Session

First, at the pre-session consultation, we will meet or talk via phone to discuss the shoot (your goals, location, wardrobe, children's temperaments, etc.) and to answer any questions you might have. I will send you an email confirming the session with tips on what to wear and preparing for your session.


Then, during the session, I will spend anywhere from one to two hours, depending on the number of people involved, location, etc., photographing you. Depending on your goals, I may take some more formal, posed portraits first then may try to be a fly on the wall while your kids play, while you interact, etc. to get some more candid shots.

After Your Session

Within two weeks, I will notify you that your proofs are available for viewing in a password-protected website gallery. These proofs will have had some basic editing done. I may also provide samples of finishing options (intense color, soft focus background, sepia, b&W, etc.) You may share this password with family & friends if you wish. We will discuss any changes you wish to make to images for prints or digital images at this time and which finishing options you prefer. You may order prints, greeting cards, or digital image files at this time. Payment of the session fee  is also due at this time. Finished prints and digital image files will be delivered within two weeks with a final invoice. Payment for prints and digital image files is due upon delivery.
