You booked a mini session,
now what?

I wanted to take a minute to share  my "why" and my photography style with you before we work together. I have a few guidelines for our session which I will list below. I also have a quick questionnaire that I ask that you fill out before our session. Taking a few minutes to go through these steps, will help ensure that we have a wonderful session.

I thank you for taking the time out of your day to do this.

What to Expect From Your Session 

I am an outdoor natural light photographer. I love working with kids and try to make this as fun as possible from them. We only have a few minutes together so lets make the most of it. I want to capture the faces your child makes on the daily basis not a canned fake smile.

How to prep for your session

  • Coordinate Outfits: Plan outfits that complement each other and fit the location and season. Avoid busy patterns or clashing colors. Opt for colors that complement your skin tones and enhance the overall aesthetic of the photos.

  • Relax and Be Yourselves: Embrace the natural moments and allow your photographer to capture your genuine connection. Laugh, interact, and enjoy the session together to create authentic and heartfelt images.

  • Don't be afraid to get silly:  Your kids will mimic your actions and attitude. If you are laughing and having fun, they will too! 

  • Pack a small snack: If we are working with a cranky kiddo, sitting down to snack and play can create a quick shift in mood and allow us to get some cute candid shots from an otherwise uncooperative kiddo.

  • Time of Day Matters: Not just for lighting, but for moods. Schedule it during a time that works well for your kids with regards to naps, feeding schedules and when they have energy to play.

  • Communicate with Your Photographer: Share your ideas, preferences, and any specific shots you'd like to capture with your photographer. This will help them tailor the session to your unique style and personalities.

  • Relax and Have Fun: Remember that family sessions are meant to be enjoyable and stress-free. Don't be afraid to let loose, have fun, and simply be yourselves. The more relaxed you are, the better your photos will turn out.


Please take a quick moment to answer these questions and better prepare me for our session.
