Planning

First, we'll discuss your project and if we are a good fit. I only take on projects where I'm confident I can delight my clients. Once we've discussed the scope of your project and budget, we'll schedule your time and location. I'll guide you as to the best times of day for beautiful light, and I'll suggest my favorite locations. In our pre-session consultation (either over the phone or in person), we'll discuss each member of your group to be photographed so that I can easily establish rapport on the session day, as well as your goals for the session, and any special concerns you may have. I'll also provide guidance on what to wear and, if applicable, how to style your space.

Session Day

On the session day, relax! We will have fun! Family sessions usually take an hour, give or take. We will take a mix of posed and more relaxed photos. The time will fly by, and we'll have a blast. In a typical family session, I'll focus on the family together, then capture images of siblings together, parents together, and each child individually. 

For a business or nonprofit, we will have discussed your goals ahead of time and will jump right in to accomplish these goals on the session day. You may be looking for headshots as well as images of your workspace and your team in action. These images will help you connect with your target market. 

For events, we will discuss ahead of time if you want capture the event as it unfolds in an artful yet documentary way, and/or if you would like me to take direction of certain elements in order to capture specific images. 

In each case, I'm fun to work with, friendly, reliable, and flexible.

Next Steps

Families tend to love tangible products in addition to digital images, and I make it easy to select heirloom quality wall art and albums. We’ll meet in person to view and select your favorites! If an in-person meeting is not feasible, you may also arrange for an online gallery and selection process. Business groups and events typically contract me to provide them with digital images only, but may certainly add on prints as they would like. 

You've entrusted me to capture your most important memories.  I'll do everything possible to delight you and exceed your expectations. Let's talk about your project!
