The sooner the better ! Sessions fill up quickly, and it’s always best to contact us as soon as possible to schedule your free consultation.

Sessions typically last 45-60 mins. I make sure there is plenty of time for short breaks, snacks and outfit changes. I encourage you to bring along a change of outfit and accessories to add variety to your. During a spontaneous and fun session, I will be able to capture unexpected moments that will become beautiful pieces of art.

My sessions may be captured in my home studio, in your home, or at the outdoor location of my choice. Usually I do two sets of backdrops per session to add variety to your portraits. I also love photographing family portraits in the natural splendor of the outdoors. The vibrant colors and textures provide a stunning backdrop.

Choosing a location that is special to your family is a wonderful way to add a personal touch to your images. I have lots of favorite locations, and I’ll be happy to select the ideal setting for your shoot.

Clothing is very important for a successful session. If more than one person is participating on the session coordinate your outfits with a palette of complementary colors for beautiful portraits. MOST IMPORTANT  is to look at the colors of your home and the rooms you will be displaying this images – it works well if your clothing and decor colors and patterns complement each other.

Neutrals, creams and soft pastel colors always looks great. Have fun with layers and accessories to add pops of bright color and dimension to your portraits. Rich textures, simple patterns, chunky jewelry, scarves, hats, headbands, and ruffles photographs well. ABSOLUTELY no logos, printed shirts or busy patterns. I always encourage getting creative with fairy wings, rubber rain boots, stylish hats, and funky headbands. Avoid clothes that are too bulky. Depending on the season, layers are ok, but be mindful of too many layers. And don’t forget about shoes! They’re an important part of your wardrobe.Bare feet are always preferred for studio !

Makeup and Hair: For women, hair should be styled naturally. In other words, if you don’t usually wear your hair in a formal updo, skip it. The same principle applies to makeup: if you’re thinking about trying out that trendy fluorescent orange eye shadow you saw in a magazine, save it for another time. Instead, choose natural makeup that makes you feel beautiful, then add a light layer of powder to reduce shine, just before the session.

After your session, I will carefully select the best  images for the viewing session. I will compare images and narrow down to the  best based on facial expressions, posing, lighting and sharpness.

At the end of our session, we will book a second date for you to come back to my home studio for the viewing session. The viewing session will be an emotional and personal experience, you will be able to select your favorite images to become art pieces for your home, office, and for family and friends. I will go over packages, products details  and help you create a beautiful display of your images.

After the order is placed, I’ll finalized editing and send the order to the lab for printing. Your order will be done in approximately 2-3 weeks. Digitals will be delivered at the time you pick up your prints.
