How it Works

STEP 1: Book Portrait Session
Simply choose which session is best suited to your needs. To reserve your session, the retainer fee is due at time of booking. Contact me via via the “Let’s Chat” contact page and we’ll get started! We’ll ask questions, chat about your dreams for your session and get dates on the calendar for your  design consultation. I will email you a link to your Welcome Guide and a questionnaire to fill out and bring to your consult.

STEP 2: Design Consultation
Enjoy going through this welcome magazine and filling out your questionnaire and making a list of those who will want imagery created from your session. Feel free to circle the products you’re interested in or write-in questions or notes. Please bring your filled out questionnaire to your design consultation.

At your design consultation we dig in and collect your ideas, hopes and dreams for your session. We work through details like wardrobe, style, accessories and props. You get to see and hold products and artwork so you can begin planning what you need.

We go over pricing and bonuses, Advance Purchase Studio Credit, referral credit and return-client credit, sign your contract, model release and get your retainer fee paid. We’ll chat about using one of my hair and make-up professionals (HMUA – highly recommended). We’ll set your portrait session date, time and location as well as your premier order session date and time.

STEP 3: Portraiture Session
If you opted to have my HMUA pamper you, please be ready with a clean face and dry, clean hair for optimum pampering! Then it’s off to have an amazingly fun portrait session – creating and capturing memories that represent YOU!! We laugh, we pose, we imagine, we create… basically we have a blast!

Please note: since countless hours, care and attention are invested into each client’s session, only a limited number of sessions are available each year.

STEP 4: In-Person Premier Order Session
Seven to ten days after your portrait session, we’ll meet at my studio for your big reveal! Relax, sit back and experience your slideshow premier projected large for your enjoyment. We’ll go through your physical proofs and select images for your prints, wall art and products. All decision makers must be present and, as much as I love little ones, it’s better that they stay at home so you can focus on and enjoy the process. Order balance is due in full at this time. Your order will be ready within three weeks.

— I look forward to hearing from you! —
