Say HELLO

Get in touch through my contact form and we can chat a bit about the session you’re envisioning & how I can make the experience perfect for you.

02.

booking

Once we move forward, I will send you a questionnaire to gather some more information that helps me know you a little better!   We will pick your date, your preferred collection of choice, and come up with some ideas for locations, wardrobe, & all the other details. 

I will then send over your custom proposal including contract & invoice for the session fee.  Once paid,  your date will be secured on my calendar.

on the day

Don’t stress! Just enjoy your custom experience.  
 
I will help you with all aspects of your shoot, including the location & outfit.   I will give very basic prompts for posing but I generally just capture authentic emotions and interactions.   
 
For birth sessions, rest assured I’m there to document you and your baby’s journey.  I will not interfere with the work you’re doing or that of your birth team. 

04.

The reveal

I will reveal your final gallery in person or over Zoom, for your convenience.  You may then order & design the artwork that will best suit you and your family.
