Quite a lot goes into planning a family portrait session and creating those beautiful results that you desire. These things are simple, and require very little input from you, but can exponentially affect the outcome of your session.

I break down my entire process for you here, because I want to answer as many of your questions as I can, before you ask them.

Stay with me.

1. Your Consultation & Design Session

Portrait sessions are somewhat intimate situations, and everyone tends to be more relaxed when they’re around people they are familiar with.

Your in-person design session, helps us get to know each other a little better. We talk in detail about what your needs are, we talk about things like location options, hair and make up, wardrobe selection and styling etc.

Having your design session take place in your home, offers you convenience, and gives me the opportunity to design custom art collections that will fit your style, aesthetic and space.

If we both feel like we are a fit for each other, and I can deliver the exact results you want, we’ll take a look at our calendars and pick a date for your family portrait session.

2. Before Your Family Portrait Session

It is my job to plan and take care of every detail. I will correspond with you (virtually or in person) to plan your entire wardrobe. Call, text or email anytime with your questions or concerns, and together we will address them.

If you have kids, pets, I’d love to meet them.

If we’re going to photograph you in your home, I’ll need to stop by before the day of the session, to plan and scout the perfect spots, like I would any other location.

3. The Day of

Hair and make up (if applicable) will be completed before the session begins. My team will be ready for you. Now, let’s get to creating some beautiful memories!

4. The Reveal and Ordering Session

Exactly one week after your session, your collection of 25-30 finished photographs will be ready. We’ll meet again in person, to go over them together,  and you select only what you love.

If I did my job right (and I always do), you’ll love them all. I place the order for your artwork and you’ll go home with the copies of any products you purchased, optimized and sized for your preferred social media platform, so that you can share your photos with friends and family, while you wait for the rest of your artwork to be delivered.

5. We Deliver (and Install) Your Artwork

And I hope you enjoy them as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them for you.
