why choose me?

the details

You love what you see so you'd like to chat?!  You can reach out to me several ways.  You are able to use the contact form here on my website, text me, call me, or email me!  I will respond to you within 24 business hours. 

From here, we will discuss exactly what you are looking for in a session and I will send you my collection pricing guide.

initial contact

When you are ready to book your session, I will send a few items over to you via email to complete the process.  You will receive your contract which lists the details of our session and can be signed electronically.  Next, there will be an attached invoice for the $50 retainer fee that is required to hold your session date that you are able to pay via debit/credit card.  Lastly, there is a short questionnaire to be completed that I use to help plan our shoot.

ready to book

Once your session is fully booked, I will email you two items to help prep for your shoot.  The first item is a Style Guide.  I find this super helpful when trying to coordinate outfits together.  I am always available if you need an opinion on which outfits will photograph the best.  The second item is a Session Prep Guide that will give you specific details for the best experience to capture photos that you are sure to love.

prepping for your shoot

The day has arrived!  Try to relax and enjoy this time we have together.  Let me take care of everything so you won't have to worry about a thing.  This is what I do and the reason you have put your trust in me to capture your moments.  

your session day

About 1 week after our session you will receive a link to your private online gallery where you will be able to view and choose your favorite poses.  Then about 2-3 weeks after our session, you will receive a link to a new private online gallery where you will be able to view and download your fully edited high resolution digital images to your phone and computer.

WHAT WILL MY SESSION BE LIKE?

Family and maternity sessions are fun and relaxed.  As a mother myself, I know how fast these times go by and I want to capture you as you are at this moment.  Newborn sessions are calm and soothing to best capture those sleepy baby poses.  We will work at the baby's pace allowing for breaks as they are needed.
 
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

For family and maternity sessions, you can wear what you feel comfortable in.  I recommend coordinating outfits together.  Try to stay away from shirts with large emblems, logos, or characters.  I will email you a copy of my detailed style guide to assist with ideas.  I also provide maternity gowns to use free of charge for my clients.  For newborn sessions, I have the wraps, furs, blankets, headbands, and bonnets for the session.

CAN MY DOGS BE INCLUDED IN THE PHOTOS?

It is no problem at all to include your fur babies in an on location session.  They are part of the family, right?!

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO SCHEDULE MY SESSION?
 
I typically book sessions 1-3 months in advance.  Maternity portraits are recommended within your 28th-34th week of pregnancy.  Newborn portraits should be scheduled well in advance.  They are booked using one week out from your due date.  You can email or text me once you are home from the hospital and we will finalize the session date typically within 7-14 days of birth.  I purposely do not overbook newborn sessions to ensure availability in my schedule for those who booked in advance.

WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD?

Family and maternity sessions are held at the location of your choice.  I can help in choosing between a park, beach, or open field.  Or maybe you have a place that is special to you.  Newborn sessions are held in my home studio and I have all of the necessary items to choose from for the session so you do not need to worry about a thing.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

A link to your private online proofing gallery will be emailed to you about 1 week after our session for you to choose your favorites.  The fully edited digital portraits are typically provided within 2-3 weeks after your session.  You will be able to view, download, and share the full resolution size and social media size portraits directly from your online gallery.


WHAT ARE YOUR CLEANING PROCEDURES?

Cleanliness is always a top priority for me!  For newborn sessions, hands are washed and sanitized often as well as wearing a mask.  All fabrics are washed and the studio as well as all props are sanitized after every session.  

WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?

If you need to reschedule your session, you must notify me at least 14 days prior to our scheduled date and the session must be completed within the same calendar year.  If there is going to be inclement weather on the day of our session, we will reschedule for a date that is mutually agreed upon and the retainer will transfer with it.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?

If you need to cancel your session, you must notify me at least 14 days prior to our scheduled date and a refund will be issued for your retainer.  If you notify me within 14 days of our scheduled session, the retainer will be forfeited.

HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION BE?

Newborn sessions can last up to 3 hours.  Family and maternity sessions typically last around an hour.  Arriving on time is extremely important for the most flattering light to photograph your family.

WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND THAT I PRINT THROUGH YOU?

You are able to order prints, wall art, photo albums, and other photo products directly from your private online gallery.  I recommend printing through me because I only use the best professional labs in the industry to guarantee your images look their best and will last.  If you choose to print through a consumer lab, I cannot guarantee the colors or the quality of their prints.

WHAT TIME OF DAY SHOULD WE SCHEDULE THE SHOOT?

The best time for the most flattering light is the first hour after sunrise or the last hour prior to sunset.  I love sunset sessions, but I also adore sunrise sessions that capture the most dramatic and gorgeous skies if you are daring enough to set the alarm that early with me!

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE LOCATIONS TO SHOOT?

My absolute favorite location to shoot is the beach!  Nature offers the perfect backdrop with the sky, clouds, and ocean.  I have 2 favorite beaches that I use - one is in Jupiter and the other is in Delray.  I also love this park in Jupiter that offers a ton of nature spots and fields to shoot in.
