What can I expect at my session?
I am a more casual photographer. You don't have to worry about your kids and teens (I have 4 kids ages 14-20.). I love working with kids and worked at a portrait studio taking photos all day. It helps to just have me in charge. I promise I will find some good shots and make you look good.
Our session will feel more like play time. I like to have you walk, run, sit, lay down, (I promise you won't feel like a trained pet!). Just be yourself. I love all emotions. I want to bring out authentic expressions and connection in a family.
Sessions are typically an hour long with one location. I charge extra for a clothes change and a second location.
What do I wear?
Neutral, solid, pastel, or earth tone colors look best. Please avoid logos, big patterns, and distracting colors and prints.
As a family you can coordinate complimentary colors. You don't have to try to match, but can have colors that look good together. Think timeless over trendy. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Simplicity is best. In the end it's more about how you FEEL than what you wear. I want the session to feel comfortable and relaxed.
When can I see my photos?
I will send your images to an on-line gallery within 2 weeks of our shoot. From the website you can download digitals and also order professional prints. The photos will stay in the gallery for 2 weeks. Please tag me in your photos on social media and share your images!
Where do you take photos?
I love to shoot outside about an hour before sunset. I love mountain views, fields, parks, and trails. You can suggest a location and we can decide where you want to go.
I do have a small studio for groups up to 6 and great for professional head shots. We can shoot there anytime of the day and also not worry about the weather.
Do I have to order prints through you?
No, you can use other print services, but the professional print services I offer are top quality! I love to see my large prints on the wall (something a cell phone can't do). I still look at my wedding photos on my wall from 22 years ago. Professional prints are timeless.
