When should I book my portrait session?
To ensure your desired session time, please contact me as soon as you know you would like to book a session, especially if you would like your session to take place during the fall or spring or on weekends as they tend to book first.
Where will my session take place?
I love natural light! All newborn sessions take place in my studio or at your home. All Portraits are taken on location. I’m happy to work with you to choose the best location to suit your needs. We have some beautiful parks around the Richmond, VA area.
How long will my session last?
Depends on which session you choose. Mini sessions are 20 minutes and my full sessions last 1 hour. Newborn sessions are 2-3hours depending on baby.
What happens if it rains?
Because I am a natural light photographer, we will reschedule if it rains.
What can I do to help my session go smoothly?
Making sure children are not tired or hungry usually works best. You can bring and a drink, favorite toy, or special stuffed animal — anything special to you such as a favorite blanket or item you would like to incorporate in the session is always a nice touch.
What should we wear?
Keep it simple! I always like to avoid busy patterns or logos. Color coordinating with a large group and just have fun with it. Wear clothes that represent you and your family. I love bright colors! I believe in playing with patterns and color palettes. Denim is always easy to coordinate but there is no need to feel everyone must match exactly. Each session is tailored to the family and or child. I want to make sure we capture YOU! Please feel free to bring along wardrobe changes and/or items that represent your family that we can incorporate (e.g., Military hat, doll, favorite chair, blanket, etc.)
Do you provide an online gallery?
You bet! I will provide at least 25 images in your online gallery, often more for a full session. Client galleries are available for review approximately two weeks after a session.
Do you photograph in both color and black and white?
Yes. I will show a couple images in your gallery in black and white.
Do you sell digital files?
Yes, each session comes with digital files. You have the ability to purchase additional files at $35/each or the entire gallery for $700. You also have the ability to purchase prints from my professional lab.
