FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS



  • I started my family photography business back in 2008 when I was based in Washington, DC.



  • The $300 non-refundable retainer is due at booking and covers my time to plan, shoot, and edit your session. It will be applied to the total package you purchase after your session.

    • Pre-session phone consultation and complimentary wardrobe styling service.

    • 1 hour outdoor session at one of my preferred local locations or in your home.

    • Heirloom wall art, albums and hand-edited digital files available for purchase from an online gallery, and are not included in the creative fee.

    • Digital and print collections start at $800.

    • Please inquire for extended family sessions for a custom quote.



  • You can send me an inquiry right from the bottom of my website. While I love a quick phone call to get to know potential clients and learn more about how I can best serve you, I understand not everyone wants to hop on the phone. You can let me know what you prefer in the form. Once you’ve inquired I will send you my investment information and sample product page, and if you are ready to book just respond to the email and we’ll get started with choosing a date! I will send over an invoice for the retainer and your date will be reserved once that’s paid.

    Next I will send over access to my wonderful outfit styling service, and we will get to planning your session together!



  • Absolutely! I regularly travel throughout Delaware, the Greater Philadelphia area, Bucks County PA, the eastern shore, Baltimore/Annapolis/Washington DC, and wherever my clients who love my work are based!



  • This will depend on the season, but I generally prefer to shoot during the last 2 hours of sunlight for the most flattering portraits.

    In-home sessions generally take place in the mid-morning so that we finish before lunchtime. But we’ll choose what’s best for each family.



  • 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 😉



  • I’m here to tell you that very few of us do!! Most of us are not naturals in front of the camera. However my many years of experience and training in family photography have enabled me to create relaxed and playful sessions no matter what. I 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. 



  • 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. If the weather looks really uncooperative, we’ll reschedule!



  • 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!



  • I have created Collections so that all of my clients get my full service, with both digitals AND luxury prints and albums. I want everyone to leave every session with custom artwork to display at home.



  • I consistently get families their galleries within 2 weeks of their session, if not sooner so you can get started on selecting your images and artwork right away!



To get started with securing a date on my calendar and session planning, just reach back out to me through email and I’ll be in touch!
