First we’ll pick a date for your family. Our timing that day will depend on your little ones and their internal clocks. In my experience, kiddos who are well rested, with full tummies and happy hearts, are the most ready for a photo adventure. Therefore, we need to choose a time of day that allows them to be at their best. Even if they’re up at 6am, I don’t mind – showing up early allows me to photograph them during their usual morning, and often gives me a good chance to play with them and build up their trust.
Sessions last anywhere from an hour to 2 hours. Everyone gets tired of the camera at some point, and I think it’s important that your child can take breaks as needed. Many of my sessions are split, so that we start at your home and then move to a location for a little photo adventure with a great outdoor background.
We’ll also schedule a consultation during the week before your shoot. This can be either over the phone or in person, but it’s an important part of making the most of our time together. Getting to know you gives me a great head start!
About 2 weeks after your session, You’ll be invited to view your own personal online gallery with all images ready for you and you will be asked to choose your favourite 15. This part is so fun for me – I’m always so excited for you to see your images! And then we’ll explore different ways to put them up in your home, making sure we end up with something you truly love.
