Join me for a vision & values chat about the core of what I really want to be giving you with your photos, what led me to explore documentary family photography, & the steps I’m taking to learn more & try it out!

“We chat about your session & the moments you want to capture, we get all excited to work together and book your photo session, and then the next thought that comes to your mind is, ‘Now I have to figure out what the heck we are all gonna wear ’ That’s a quote from a recent client, and the “what to wear” question is so real! I get this question all the time. As a professional photographer who guides many families through choosing the perfect outfits for their photo session, I’m here to help you! …”

Hey there! As we prepare to capture some memories together, I want to do so safely to dampen any continued spread of the coronavirus. I recently heard, “We shouldn’t be scared, but we should be cautious,” and that sounds like a good way to be moving forward. I take this seriously, so out of an abundance of caution, here are some of the safety precautions I am personally taking for your session!

“Social distancing, self-quarantining, and mandatory stay-at-home orders make it difficult for you to live your normal life and support the businesses you usually frequent. Small businesses simply cannot survive without the cash flow we need to pay expenses we have even when there’s no business. The government has stepped up to make some resources available, but the impact those have vary for each business & their specific situation. Here are some ways you can help…”

“The biggest difference between the albums and photo books is the quality of the pages. While the photo book’s pages have pretty amazing quality already, albums step it up a notch with extra thick pages that don’t bend at all when you turn the page. Because the pages are thicker and even more sturdy, the album is solid and prominent as it sits on your coffee table or within your bookshelf! Printed on high-quality premium lustre paper, your photos have a slight sheen and their vibrant colors hold true beautifully. …”

“Photo books come with a custom cover including the fabric color of your choice (the same fabric offerings as the image boxes, so you can coordinate!) and a photo from your session or wedding, both wrapped around the edges of the book for a clean finish. Choose an iconic photo that represents this time in your life well, and choose a fabric color that coordinates with your home! The fabric wraps around to cover the entire back of the book, and the image on the cover has a very smooth, soft-to-the-touch feel. I wish I could let you feel it as you read this post, but that will have to wait until we meet in person! …”

“Image boxes are an easy way to display photos in your home with the ability to have different photos on display at different times. Don’t forget to put your photos up of your kids with their grandparents when your in-laws come to visit! 😉 You don’t have to worry about getting your own frames if you don’t want to, or even remembering to print your photos somewhere, because it’s all taken care of for you in this simple, stylish image box!”

“Framed art is available in 5×7″, 8×10″, 11×14″, 16×20″, and 20×24″ options with your choice of frame and mat. Having trouble visualizing those sizes? I have samples that I can hold up to a wall in your home – this makes it so much easier to picture your own art hanging there! You’d be surprised how small an 11×14″ or even 16×20″ photo can look in the space above your couch, but I work with you to find the best size for your needs. …”
