Before the session

Getting to know each other and your style, what custom artwork you are interested in.

How long have you been in business?

I started my business in 2008.

What Packages do you offer?

My collections start at $950, including digital files and product credit.

How do I book?

First, let’s chat! I love a quick phone call to get to know potential clients and learn more about your family and how I can best serve you. You can contact me and schedule a call so I can share more about my process, and the products I offer. We can chat more about dates and locations at this time as well. Afterwards, I will send over an invoice for the $325 creative fee, and a contract to hold your selected date.

As soon as you have paid your creative fee, I will send over access to my wonderful outfit styling service, and we will get to planning your session together!

How do I choose a location?

I will help you to choose the best location in your area. Since I travel a LOT for sessions, we will chat about what you’re looking for to help me determine what is the best spot for your family.

Do you travel for sessions?

I regularly travel out of my area for sessions. I travel throughout Delaware, the Greater Philadelphia area, the eastern shore, Baltimore/Annapolis/Washington DC, and wherever my clients who love my work are based!

What time of day will my session be?

This will depend on the season, but I generally prefer to shoot at sunset for the most beautiful light.

In-home sessions generally take place in the mid-morning so that we finish before lunchtime.

Session day

Ready to make some magic

What if we show up frazzled and stressed?

Don’t worry. I am a mother of three and have been photographing families for over a decade, and truly nothing phases me. And here’’s a fun secret- almost everyone feels like they want to cry at their spouse or children upon arriving to a session.

We Don’t look like models, how will you make us look natural?

I’m here to tell you that very few of us do!! Most of us are not naturals in front of the camera. However years of experience and training in family photography have enabled me to create relaxed and playful sessions that guide you into relaxed poses and engage your family- think of this as a fun outing to a park, and a chance to give your little ones those extra kisses and snuggles they crave all day long. Most kids leave our session saying how much fun they had together!

Allowing the freedom to play and explore, chat and be silly, your children will feel relaxed while I observe and capture your family’’s personality and joy. 

Can we bring props?

Rather than rely on any props, I use light, interaction, and emotion to tell stories and make art out of your everyday.I am not a good fit for families looking for decor or props to be used.

What if the weather is uncooperative that day?

Cloudy days make for beautiful images, so I do not reschedule on those days. On days when the forecast looks iffy for rain, we will stay in touch throughout the day. Many times when we are tempted to reschedule due to a threat of rain, it ends up being a magical sunset. So we have to remain flexible. My schedule is usually booked out, so I only reschedule if the weather is totally uncooperative.

What if my family gets sick?

I understand that unexpected illness strikes and if that happens we will reschedule our session. I will fit you in when you are all better!


After the session

View your gallery and purchase custom luxury prints, albums, and edited digitals.


How will you show us our pictures?

Within 2-3 weeks of your session, you will receive an email letting you know that your images are ready for viewing! You will be able to view your images in a beautiful slideshow that is active for 24 hours after your first viewing. After viewing your images, you will select one of my digital and print packages to purchase. Each collection comes with a print credit that will be used online.

Once you’ve purchased your Collection, you will be directed to my online boutique to purchase heirloom printed wall art and albums directly from me.  The online ordering will be open for two weeks so you can use your print credit, and I am available during this time to assist you with your selections. All orders must be placed within 2 weeks.  

If you’d like to schedule either a zoom consultation where we can review your pictures together I am happy to do so to be available to help you choose from the beautiful products. This complimentary art consultation is available so that you I can help you choose perfectly-sized art for your home. 

You can view samples and pricing of my product offerings here.

 


What kind of products do you offer?

I believe very strongly that all clients should leave a session with tangible and professional artwork to display. Often we spend a great deal of time planning for a portrait session and then never get around to using the beautiful digital files we’ve invested in, or end up printing from a cheap consumer lab that doesn’t do justice to the work we’ve created. 

I am a full-service photographer which means I provide access to heirloom framed canvas and matted wall prints, fine art albums, and loose prints. My clients value both digital files for sharing and archival purposes AND professional prints to enjoy my artwork in your home.
