The #1 thing I've observed that means the difference between great photos and those "holy shit/gave me goosebumps/I need these blown up on my wall immediately" photos is when you're able to let go and be completely present during the session. And what makes the chances of this happening the most likely? feeling prepared. We will work together to come up with the perfect location that holds meaning for you, the right wardrobe, and everything in between. We'll do this together every step of the way.
When you arrive at our session, your one and only job is to show up ready to enjoy it. Will everything go exactly to plan? Probably not. Will we have a great time and get amazing photos anyway? Yes.
Make it fun. Make it a date night, or fun family outing. Go for dinner before or out for ice cream after.
Another question asked often is "do you pose people?" The answer is yes and no. 10/10 people tell me they feel weird in front of the camera, and so do I, so I get it! I'll prompt and direct you through the entire session, but we won't be getting stiff poses or cheesing at the camera. Some clients need a little more direction and others none at all. Either is perfectly ok.
Depending on the time of year, it typically takes between 2 - 4 weeks for me to fully edit a gallery. When is complete you'll receive all of your digital images in an online gallery. But you didn't really do this to have your photos live on your phone for all eternity, did you? I'm here to help you get your images printed and displayed in your home.
Its about more than crossing something off the to-do list. More than the pretty holiday card worthy shot. These are images you'll show your grandchildren. Remember that.
