How this all works

Most important
 
  • Make sure that everyone comes to the photo session with a full belly.  Most of us are happiest then.  

  • Tell your children that it’s a time for fun play and someone will be coming to take photos of them doing their favorite things.  Children expect  the worse and can come with an attitude if you bribe them first to “be good”.  

The Photo Shoot

  • This should be fun! Running, jumping, playing are all great things to do during the photo session.  

  • I take candid pictures of your family in a relaxed and informal setting.  It may seem like we’re ‘winging it’ and that’s because we are, I’ll give you some guidance but mostly I will just let you and your family do what comes natural.  I adapt to your family and capture the moments as they occur.  

 

Location

Think of your family’s favorite spots in the area, this could be a park, the beach, your home or whatever else you’d like.  I’ve got a list of great spots if you want some ideas.

 
What to Wear
  • Everyone should dress comfortably and wear clothes they like.

  • Let your children wear clothes they love as this is the time to to capture who they are now.  Plus those eccentric clothes are adorable.  

  • Coordinating is good but please no matching attire

  • No logos or pictures on shirts as they can detract from faces.

  • As for color, I'd steer clear of  blacks or busy patterns

  • Other than that, the clothing/costume changes are all up to you.

Payment
  • The payment is due before the photoshoot - I prefer PayPal and you can just do it through my website or I'll send you an invoice. 

What to expect after the photo session

I’ll edit the images typically within a week and depending on the package you chose, I’ll either upload the best images to DropBox or I’ll upload a bunch of pictures with a watermark on Dropbox for you to choose which images you want.

 

Rescheduling

Sometimes the weather is uncooperative, someone may be sick or super cranky, and as none of these are conducive for a fun shoot, we can reschedule.  Though keep in mind that rain can be pretty fun to play in.
