Welcome Guide

When you book a session with me, I will send you this welcome guide- some info to help answer any more questions you have about how to prepare and what to expect!

Questions? Let's chat!



What is "styling guidance?"

1. I will send you a written list of tips for you to prepare yourself, self-care prior to your session, tips for hair and make-up and clothing options.

2. ALSO- you will receive a link for an online service that will help you choose and coordinate outfits! While this uses clothing that is currently on the market and available for purchase, you may shop from your closet first, you do not need to purchase anything you don't wish to, but this service is EXCELLENT for a springboard for ideas and coordination! This is a service I invested in to help you out.

3. You may message me and ask my opinions and questions- I'm available to you!

May we bring our dog(s)?

If this is a member of your family, then yes!

May I bring grandparents for a picture?

Absolutely, yes!!! ALL THE YESES.

Please invite your parents to be in your family pictures! This matters, you want pictures with your parents in them and them with their grandkids.

Adding just grandparents doesn't count as extended family, they may also attend a Petite session.


We have a senior this year. May we combine a family & senior session?

I LOVE that idea.
Two ways to do this- split a full session into two, or add a mini-session on to a full session. Message me so we can discuss your vision and how to distribute time! See Contact Me page.

Do you offer mini sessions?

Mini sessions are scheduled occasionally. You'll want to be on my email list to receive notifications when my booking calendar opens!

How do I know which is right for us- Petite or full session?

Families with spunky, unpredictable littles, or larger families (8+ members), will benefit from the time a full session allows!

Small families and chill kids who are exceptionally cooperative, if you have a smaller budget, already comfortable in front of the camera, and/or really do just want a few updated pictures, a petite is for you.

Petite sessions are also great for announcement pics, milestone sessions for children, or a Christmas card pic.

I occasionally offer minis, but to be honest, I'm not great at them. I enjoy the time with you and can almost never stick to just 15 minutes :D
