I. Book Your Session.

Submit your inquiry. If we are a good fit, we'll choose a session date and I will send you a contract and the non-refundable retainer invoice to book that date.


Once your session is booked, I'll send you a questionnaire to help me get to know your family. I love getting to read through this and "meet" your family! It helps me to know how to connect with your children at the session, and guides the types of posing and prompts I give to you - I want to make them meaningful to your family.

II. Personalized Session Planning Assistance

My goal as your photographer is to come alongside you in the session prep to make it stress-free and simple, and set you and your family up for an incredible session.


After reading your family's questionnaire, I send you location and wardrobe styling suggestions tailored specifically to your family.


I'm available for you to reach out every step along the way, and will send you emails with guidance leading up to your session so that you are never left wondering what to do!

III. Enjoy the Session.

Come ready to let go of expectations of yourself and your children, enter into your child's world and enjoy their personality.


I will be directing you the whole time, putting you in beautiful light, and engaging with your family to help everyone to have fun together!

IV. Receive Your Images.

No need to try and narrow it down to a few favorites, I provide you with all the best photos from your session!


Within a month of your session, you'll receive your downloadable high-resolution digital files with a print release in a beautiful online gallery from which you can easily download your images, order professional quality prints and products, and share your favorites with friends and family on social media.

FAQ

Do you help choose locations?

A.Absolutely! I have an ever growing list of outdoor locations that I have scouted within roughly 30 miles of St. Cloud, MN. When you book with me, I consider your family's dynamic and the time of year and give you my recommendation for where we should do the shoot.

*How far do you travel for in-home sessions?

A.As a mom to two under two, I have to stay pretty close to home during this time of life!

Travel is included in the session fee for homes within 30 miles of St. Cloud, MN

There is a flat rate travel fee of $25 for homes farther than 30 miles from St. Cloud, MN but within 60 miles.

Beyond that, feel free to reach out and we can discuss your specific circumstances and location!

Do you have a studio?

A.I do not - As a lifestyle photographer, I value finding local outdoor locations to recommend to my clients (and I am always looking for new ones!) or capturing your session in the comfort and authenticity of your own home.

Do I get the RAW files?

A.No. Not only do RAW files take up a lot of storage space and require specific software in order to process them, but your image is also only halfway finished (and is not an accurate representation of my work) before I do the work to bring your beautiful image to its fullest potential.

To give you the RAW file would be as if you ordered a cake from a baker and he handed you a stack of ingredients and no recipe, utensils, or pans.

Will you alter my appearance extensively in your editing?

A.My editing style seeks to preserve the beautiful way that you truly are and the authenticity of the moments that we've captured.

I do not employ airbrushing or extensive body altering in my edits, though I may remove temporary blemishes or bruises.

You'll want to make sure to wear well-fitting clothing and ensure that undergarments are not visible through your clothing, as these are not edits that are included in your package.

Stray hairs and flyaways are part of the experience and the memories and are not something that I edit out.

What if it rains?

A.I'll keep an eye on my weather app and we can stay in touch as your session draws near. If it looks like rain is inevitable, we can easily decide to reschedule to another day that looks better in terms of weather.
