The Process

Inquire your details

When you decide to book a session with me, I will schedule a pre-consultation phone call to discuss your portrait session. I will want to learn your goals for the portrait session so that we can best choose a time and place. Which room in your home do you plan to hang your portrait art? What should everyone wear? During this first call I will guide you through the process and answer all your questions so you enjoy the experience, knowing that everything has been covered.


Reserve your date

Once you're ready to move forward, the next step is looking at both of our calendars and choosing a date. We take a limited number of sessions per month because of the experience we provide, so we recommend reaching out as far ahead as possible to ensure availability.


after the session

About 2-3 weeks after your session you will be invited back to the studio for your design and ordering session where you will have the chance to view the portraits from your session . You will also get to select your favorite images and decide how you want to display them; as framed artwork on your walls or an heirloom album to flip through on the daily or digital collections.

The client wardrobe is a carefully curated collection of high-end pieces for women and children to make your session a fun and effortless experience! 
Below is a sampling of pieces I have available.

The clothing that you choose to wear can affect the overall look of your final images. The three things that I am particular about are: clothing, session location, and time of day. These three things can completely change the look of an image. By keeping them consistent in all sessions, you are guaranteed beautiful images. I know firsthand the amount of time it takes to put together that perfectly coordinated “matching but not too matchy-matchy” combination, and by borrowing from the client closet, this is now something you don’t need to worry about - simply show up in your sweats and let me handle the rest! Of course, you always have the option to wear your own clothing! We can always pin or clip pieces to achieve the perfect fit!
