Who is your ideal client?
Not everyone is my ideal client and I am ok with that. I want you to be happy, it is very important to me that lifestyle photography is a good fit for you and your family. If you're looking for perfectly posed photographs with everyone looking at the camera I'm probably not your girl (although I will try to get one for grandma). My clients are creative and fun. They can be a little crazy and think outside the box. Someone who wants to capture their unique and genuine story. My client finds beauty in the everyday. My client is awesome.
How do I book a session?
Check out my “contact” section and shoot me an email. Together we will work out all the details. Let me know your availability and the type of session you are wanting and I will let you know what I have open.
We've set a date....now what?
You and I work together to find a beautiful location, pick the perfect outfits and find the most glorious light.
I work on-location, which can be anywhere "life" happens. At your home (no it doesn't have to be magazine perfect but it does have to have adequate natural light) or out in the community. Some cool places are the ice cream parlor, the park around the corner, the cute village near you or an empty farmer's field.
I schedule all of my outdoor sessions during the "golden hour" (1 hour before sunset) as this is THE most glorious light.
If we are doing an indoor sessions I will ask you a million questions about windows, direction, what time of day and I may even come over to do some scouting myself . :)
Please plan on arriving 5-10 minutes early for your session. There are always last minute details to take care of (makeup to touch up, flyaway hairs to tame, noses to wipe, etc) and it’s best to have a cushion of time so these things won’t take up our shooting time. It also helps you relax a little before we get started.
~For indoor Lifestyle sessions it all depends on the lighting in your house. Typically the lighting is best in the morning
~fresh 48 sessions are typically scheduled the morning after the baby is born however they are also dictated by hospital discharge.
~Newborn sessions are typically scheduled in the morning as that is when baby is most sleepy
What is your pricing?

What do we wear?
Your wardrobe choices should reflect your personalities and they should coordinate (but not too matchy matchy). Choose something that makes you feel comfortable and pretty.
Feel free to show me too! My families send me pictures all the time. I’m no fashionista but I’m happy to give my opinion. Visit my Pinterest board "What to wear" for some great ideas.
What if I need to reschedule?
I’m a mom too. I know things come up. Just contact me as soon as you know you need to reschedule so that I can open that spot up for someone else. I only allow one reschedule . When a reschedule happens, I’m usually unable to rebook that date on such short notice, so I try to keep them to a minimum.
If I need to reschedule, I contact you as soon as possible and the one time rescheduling does not apply to your session
When will my pictures be ready?
In approximately 3-4 weeks I will send you a link to a gallery where you can choose the ones that speak to you heart
When will my film be ready?
up to 2 months
Did I miss anything?
If you did that's ok. We have plenty of time to chat about your session. If you have any questions please shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you
