How it works

Fun!  That’s what we are going to have!  I can’t wait to get to know you!  It begins with a detailed questionnaire so I can find out more about you and your family.  We can meet for coffee or we can talk on the phone if you prefer.  We’ll discuss what style of images you are looking for and what you want your love story to be about.  Once you confirm your session, you will have access to the exclusive clients section of my website.  This is a valuable resource that will help you prepare for your Custom Photography Session and also includes a detailed “what to wear” guide with shopping recommendations.

Sessions usually last 1-2 hours – but that depends on you and your child(ren).  Newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your own home, and may take a bit longer.  For everyone else, we will choose a location that fits our objectives. Outside is always preferred.  Be prepared to laugh, make silly faces, lay on the the ground, hug and kiss — remember, this is YOUR love story!

When I am finished hand-crafting all of your images, I will contact you to set up your personal ordering session.  You’ll want to have a babysitter for this exciting event!  Together we will go through your images and select your favorites for printing, enlarging, and sharing.   You will also be able to touch and feel all of our beautiful portrait products — including our Keepsake Boxes and LoveStory Books.  We are able to show you the real size of your finished portrait on the wall of your own home (ask me how!), so it’s a great idea to have wall & furniture measurements ready so I can assist you in making your design decisions.  All of our products are luxurious, archival, pieces of art.

Your portraits will take several weeks to arrive, then your personal Love Story will be enjoyed by you and future generations for many years to come!
