Frequently Asked Questions

When should I book my session?
You should book your session as soon as you decide that I am the photographer for you.  I book a limited amount of sessions per month and it’s first come first serve.

Do you have a studio?
No, I work on location using natural and available light.

What should I expect during a photo session?
Sessions will be fun and upbeat.  We will do a combination of posed and candid shots.  I will make a special effort to bond with kids so that they will be comfortable with me.  Your only job is to relax and have fun!  Often the most endearing photos are those taken when the subjects were unaware of the camera so I will not have you pose for every shot.  If you have ideas for certain shots you would like to take, please share them with me.  I am always excited to try new ideas!

What should I/we wear?
This is the most asked question!  Consider that you will have these photos for a long time so when in doubt, choose classic looks that will stand the test of time.  When it comes to family or group portraits, the best advice I can give is to think coordinating, not matching.  Some things to avoid are large logos, cartoon characters, and solid bright whites.

When is the best time for a newborn session?
Within the first 5-10 days of life so we can get those adorable sleepy baby shots.

Do you photograph weddings?
Not at this time although I love to do engagement photos!

When will I get to see my photos?
Your online viewing gallery will be available approximately 2-3 weeks after the date of our session.
