Looking to capture the special moments of your family and little ones? Look no further! Photography sessions with me are the perfect way to document the unique personality and beauty of your family. For just a $250 sitting fee, I will work with you to create a personalized photo session that truly captures your family's love and connection. Whether you're looking for posed portraits or candid shots, we'll work together to create a collection of images that you'll treasure for years to come.
And the best part? I offer custom artwork that you can display in your home to relive those wonderful moments for a lifetime. The average investment for custom artwork ranges from $500-$1,800, depending on your preferences and needs. From beautiful canvas prints to unique photo books, I have a variety of options to help you showcase your family's story.
All of my family sessions follow a simple four step process. I am here to help guide you through the whole process to ensure you get beautifully captured memories that you can proudly display in your home for years to come.
The consultation. I always do a quick consultation with my clients. During the consultations we talk about what you want your portraits to capture. We also discuss what you would like to do with your images after the session. We will talk about the different types of wall art I offer. I will show you the memory boxes and custom albums. Together we will figure out what works best for your family and home.
We can also streamline the process by combining your consultation and in-home design meeting for your upcoming portrait session.
Design is key! After your consultation, we'll schedule an in-home meeting to discuss wall space, collections, and materials that match your decor. We'll also choose session locations that complement your home's style. This helps me capture the perfect shots to fit your vision, like a canvas above your fireplace.
It's showtime! Get ready for a fun and playful portrait session with me. I love to capture movement and emotions, like kids jumping and dad's jokes. Let me guide you and your family to create timeless memories that you'll cherish forever. Just relax and leave the rest to me!
Once your photos are ready, I'll create a personalized online portrait gallery for you, complete with a slideshow for our reveal and ordering appointment. Get ready to see your beautiful memories and choose your favorite prints and products!
At the reveal and ordering session, we'll go through your family portraits and select your favorites. Then, using the ideas we came up with during our in-home design meeting, we'll create wall collections, mock-ups, and designs to fit your home's style. I'm an expert in designing beautiful collections of mounted prints, framed wall art, canvases, metal prints, memory boxes, and portrait albums. You can also choose high-resolution digital image collections, along with all the printed products. You only purchase what you love, and the amount you invest is up to you. Most families invest between $500 and $2000 for their favorite artwork to display in their homes. Let's create something beautiful together!
Once your artwork has been ordered and delivered to my studio, I will conduct a quality check, carefully wrap it, and personally deliver it to your doorstep. If you have a wall art collection, I will even hang it up for you and ensure that it looks stunning in your home! With my 100% "love it" guarantee, you can trust that I won't stop until you love what you see and the products are absolutely perfect.

What happens if it rains on the day of my outdoor session?
A.We all know that the weather can be unpredictable, especially here in the Pacific Northwest. In the event of rain during your scheduled outdoor session, we have a few options. We can either relocate to an indoor area, such as my studio, or we can stay and play in the rain, or can reschedule for a different date that works for both of us.
It's always a good idea to have a backup plan and space in case of inclement weather, so you can feel confident that we'll still be able to capture beautiful photos regardless of what Mother Nature throws our way.
If you have any concerns about potential weather-related disruptions or questions about rescheduling, please don't hesitate to reach out. I'm here to help ensure that your photography experience is as smooth and enjoyable as possible, rain or shine!
I'm not sure where we should do our portraits. Do you have any ideas or preferences?
A.I've scouted out a variety of locations that I absolutely love for portrait sessions. When it comes to family and children portraits, you have a lot of options to choose from, including my studio, urban locations, rural spots, your own home, and anything in between.
My goal is to make your photography experience as stress-free and enjoyable as possible, so please don't hesitate to ask me any questions or share your thoughts with me. Together, we'll find the perfect location and create beautiful, timeless images that you'll cherish for years to come.
How long does a typical photography session last?
A.Most of my sessions typically run between 1-2 hours, allowing us plenty of time to capture a range of images and create a comfortable, enjoyable experience. However, I also offer mini sessions throughout the year, which are shorter in duration, typically lasting between 30-45 minutes. These sessions are perfect for clients who want a quick, efficient shoot and a smaller selection of images. Whatever your needs may be, I'm happy to work with you to create a photography session that suits your unique vision and preferences.
