What to Expect | Family and Child Session

I know that a family photoshoot can be stressful…especially for moms.  What to wear? What if the kids don’t behave? My husband hates pictures. The list goes on and on and you’re sweating just thinking about it!  So here are a few things that you should know about working with me…

I offer custom photography.  That means I tailor each session for each client’s personal needs while maintaining my style.  So take a breath…we’ll make this as stress free as possible.  I support you throughout the entire process, from choosing a location, planning outfits, and finally designing image displays.


When you book a session, we decide on a location that fits your family and will look good hanging on your walls.  I have a lot of locations I use often, but will happily check out ones that you might want to use.  It’s not your job to come up with a location, that’s why you hire me!

I am very laid back while shooting, but extra efficient to assure we get all the shots we want before the kids are “over it”.  I work to make your experience fun for you and your family so that everyone is comfortable and you all feel natural during your session.  I have a totally realistic expectation for my clients.  I know that kids don’t sit still and smile perfectly for the camera every time, and honestly, that would take away from the fun of my job, as well as producing “real” images for you!

As for what to wear, I will happily talk at length with you about outfit options…you can even text me pictures of options while you’re standing in the store!!

A week to two after your session, I will have your 30-35 images for you and you can decide how to use your print credit.  My ready-to-hang, finished images and display canvases save you precious time in ordering and hanging. No need to work with a custom framer or have your cherished images end up as just files on your computer because the busyness of life gets in the way. I want to make sure that you can immediately surround yourself with all of your favorites to cherish for years to come.


Hopefully this will ease your hesitations about scheduling a session, and if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
