I give you what you give me. What that means is, if you follow my guidelines, read the information I provide throughout the planning process, and trust my lead during our session, I'll deliver as many photos as I possibly can. Most of my hour-long sessions include a minimum of 40 images, but I've delivered plenty more when kids (and adults alike) are good listeners and enjoy time together. Moms, if you have young children, prep them for the importance of the day but take a relaxed demeanor (think: playdate) during the shoot.
Well, friend, you're not alone. Even celebrities claim they don't love being in front of the camera. It's my job to make you feel relaxed and calm, and to create a mood that elicits the natural "you". Before each session, you'll have plenty of conversations and resources to prepare you for a great outcome. We'll also arrive at the location before your session to meet & greet. After a few minutes of being in front of the camera, I promise that you'll forget all about the camera. :-) I'll prompt you with silly questions that lead to natural and fun interactions with each other.
Once we book our session and your deposit is paid, I'll share a style guide and tips to prep for your session, including how to work with little ones for the session if we're doing family photography. This also includes a backup plan for rainy days.
As someone who also pays for photography, I realize that investing in images can be daunting. Whether you're convinced you're camera shy, have had a bad experience with another photographer, or simply don't know where to start, rest assured that I have your best interest at heart. I'm a people-centered photographer which means I'm here to serve you! My process ensures you'll be happy with your results. I stand by my work and will do everything in my power to make sure you are happy with your images. Although I don't offer reduced rates for individual photo packages, I occasionally offer mini-sessions on a first-book-first-serve basis for new clients. Follow me on social media or email me to be added to the list for updates. You can also do payment plans.
