Do you have a studio?
As of right now I do not have a studio. Sessions are done in-home and on location

Where will the session take place?
Newborn sessions always take place in the comfort of your own home, if it is warm out we may decide to do a couple of shots in an area near by as well.
Other sessions take place in parks, fields, urban areas, or any other location of your choice including your own home and yard. For toddlers and kids on the shy side it is best to pick a place that is familiar to them.

What are some of your favorite locations?
Some of my personal favorite places to photograph in are beaches, meadows, in the client's home, and any place new and exciting. 

What should I expect in the session?
I try to keep you and your family as comfortable as possible. We will chit-chat for a few minutes before getting started and I will introduce myself to the kids. It is important that they feel comfortable with me before we get started. After that, we will do a mixture of posed and candid shots. I will take family shots, sibling shots, and everyone by themselves. Breaks are fine and so are outfit changes.

Do you bring props?
I like to keep props limited to only 1 or 2, but I do bring props when it calls for them. 

Can we bring our own props?
Yes, you can! If your child has a special doll or toy bring it! It will make them more comfortable and make the photos that more special.

What should we wear?
Comfort and style is the number 1 priority, you can find some suggestions here.

Do you offer payment plans?
The deposit must be paid before you book your shoot, However, the balance can be payed off within a month of your session. Photos will not be delivered to you until you are fully paid up.
