The Experience

Lifestyle photography is the perfect approach for capturing the beauty and authenticity of childhood. Believe it or not, the most successful shoots are often the ones that let the kids lead. It’s a magical, spirited time and there’s so much to take in. By sitting back and capturing those honest moments you’ll ensure a stunning shoot you’ll love for decades.

The Process

SESSION CONSULTATION

We can chat over the phone or in person at my studio to choose which session works best for you and I will suggest a few locations for you to choose from, explaining all the different spots it has to offer. Once your location is decided, it’s time to start planning your outfits!  We will also start looking at different product options to display your family portraits.

I will capture real moments and authentic connections.  I strive to make each session stress-free and something that you and your family will look back on and smile.  Sessions are 60-90 minutes long and we explore parks, beaches and/or the city.  Each session is tailored to your individual family needs.

Two weeks after your session is when the fun really begins.  I create a custom slideshow for you to watch at the Reveal & Design Session.  After the slideshow, I will help you plan the wall art, album, and fine art that you would like for your home.  This part can be overwhelming which is why I am here to help and that is the main purpose of the Reveal & Design Session.  We will walk around your home and plan your custom art pieces together.  Your family will treasure your portraits for generations.

As a busy mom I want gorgeous photos of my kids, but I also don’t want to stress about the process. Jennie managed to make the whole process from start to finish feel so easy and fun. She was awesome with my kids and took photos that truly captured each of their personalities. I love being able to see the gorgeous images she captured on my walls each day.

YOUR QUESTIONS

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK OUR SESSION?

Portrait sessions (children, maternity, and family) are best-scheduled 2-3 months in advance.  I take a limited number of sessions each month so that I can focus all of my attention on your family and creating your perfect images.  If you are interested in a session, please contact me, as far in advance as possible to ensure you are able to schedule a date that works for both your and my calendars.

AT WHAT LOCATION WILL OUR SESSION TAKE PLACE?

During the pre-session consultation, I will get to know you and your family.  We’ll talk about the things you like to do together, and what types of locations would best fit your style.  Most of my family, maternity, and children’s sessions take place at a beautiful nature, landscape setting with beautiful light or in an urban location.  Just depends on what style fits your family best.

WHAT IF MY KIDS DON'T COOPERATE DURING THE SESSION?

Don’t stress!  I’ve got it covered!  Just relax and let me handle it.  I make sure to get to know your family and let you all play and have fun during your portrait session.  So don’t worry if the kids are acting out a bit.  I may even pull them aside and show them my camera and create a fun game to play with them.  I’ve got lots of tricks up my sleeve and you’ll be amazed at the beautiful moments that will show in your images.  So enjoy the moment, relax, and make some family memories that you can look back on and remember fondly.

WHAT IF THERE IS BAD WEATHER ON THE DAY OF OUR SESSION?

When we book your session, we will put a tentative rain date on the calendar as well.  I check the weather often and we will work together to decide on if the session needs to be rescheduled.  We will reschedule hours before the session time, so you all don’t get ready for nothing.  Remember, I’m the one worrying about all the details.  I wish I could control the weather, but I will do my best to ensure you have beautiful portraits of your family.

WHAT IS THE SESSION FEE?

Session Fees vary based on the type of session that you are booking.  The session fee is due at the time of your booking.  This fee holds your date/time on my calendar and includes a pre-session planning meeting (consultation) to design the details of your portrait session, the session itself, editing time, and an in-person selection/ordering appointment.  The session fee does not include any products and/or digital negatives.

ARE JUST THE DIGITAL FILES AVAILABLE?

My studio specializes in creating wall art and beautiful albums.  I assist you with every step of the portrait process to create beautiful heirloom art to display in your home.  I do understand that we live in a digital world and it’s important for many to be able to share their images online, and be able to print them at a later time.  For this reason, I do offer digital negatives as part of my collections in addition to your heirloom artwork.  However, I want to encourage you to think of digital negatives as a backup of your images.  Remember, a digital file’s life span is an average of 10 years at most, where a print can last around 100 years or more.  What legacy will you choose to leave for your generations?

HOW LONG BEFORE WE GET TO VIEW OUR IMAGES?

About one or two days after our session I will post an image on social media for you to share with your family and friends.  Then, about 2 weeks after your session we will get together for your selection/ordering appointment, where you will choose your images for your heirloom artwork pieces.
