When will I receive my pictures?
Your full gallery will be ready one to two weeks after your session. However, a sneak peek will be posted on social media a few days after your session.
What should I expect during our session?
Be prepared to move around a lot (if you are able), as we will most likely change spots with the sun. Don’t worry about posing or smiling. I strive to evoke authentic moments and I often do so by using prompts. Be prepared for this but don’t let it scare you! I will pose you, ask questions, and have you engage in activities that help create natural moments. This will make our session together fun for everyone because we aren’t going to worry about being perfect! The most beautiful images are the ones that are authentic & capture emotion. So just focus on enjoying this family time and connecting with each other. All you have to do is relax and have fun.
What is a Lifestyle Session?
A lifestyle session is somewhere in between documentary & portrait photography. It aims to capture the beauty in your every day in an artistic way. There is some posing & directing but mostly it is aimed at capturing authentic moments.
What is a Fresh 48 Session?
This session is for those that want to document all the first moments of their newborn’s life without having labor and delivery documented. It is also a great way to document siblings meeting baby for the first time.
How do I prepare for an in-home lifestyle session?
For in-home sessions. Just tidy up the clutter. Your home does not need to be perfect! But having clutter in the areas we shoot will not produce the best result. So be aware of things sitting out.
