Thank you for taking the time to chat with me!

Here's what's next:


I know that was A LOT of information - So I wanted to send you a detailed lay out of everything that we just went over.

 

let's get started!

STEP 1: SCHEDULING YOUR SESSION:


In order to reserve a date, you will sign some paperwork and pay a session fee of $250. If we haven't already, the easiest way to compare calendars is for you to email or call me with a few dates that work for your family - I always try to be as flexible as possible, and once we find a date, booking is 100% online and takes just a few minutes!








 

Before you pull out your calendar, here are a few things to consider:


  • Many clients who work regular business hours find that by scheduling early in the morning or late in the afternoon, they're able to work a session in with almost no time lost at the office.


  • Given the beautiful colors and temperate weather, spring and fall are the busiest times of year for outdoor family photos in Indiana. If you'd like a session during one of those times (ESPECIALLY if you want a weekend spot), please get in touch as soon as possible!


  • Babies and young children are almost universally at their very best first thing in the morning, which just happens to also be a great time of day for beautiful light. If you have children under five years old, I encourage you to consider a session at or as close to sunrise as you can reasonably be ready.


  • If you have older children or have one of those rare babies that doesn't do mornings, the other time of day that gives us great light is late afternoon/early evening... usually around 1.5 hours before sunset.


  • Beautiful photographs can be made in any kind of weather, but I understand that there are some downsides to being photographed in the pouring rain or the freezing cold. I can and do reschedule sessions for inclement weather, but am also happy to use your home or one of my indoor or semi-indoor locations if sticking to the schedule is a priority.


STEP 2: the session itself:


Once we've decided on a time and date and officially put your session on the books, I'll send you a guide to getting ready that will walk you through everything from choosing outfits to strategies for getting kids to cooperate. That guide has been created and refined over years of experience, so it typically answers 90% of the questions that come up, but I'm always happy to set up a time to chat if you want additional help. A few days before our session is scheduled, I'll reach out to confirm our time and location... at that point, if the forecast is questionable or someone seems to be coming down with the flu, we can talk about our rescheduling options. Otherwise, that's the perfect time to ask any last-minute questions or let me know if you've come up with a fun idea we haven't discussed.










The day of the session, please block off 1-2 hours


Typically we're done within 40 minutes or so, but I don't charge by the hour, so if there's some kind of wardrobe malfunction or child meltdown, I like to stay flexible. If a parent has to leave for an important business meeting but the rest of the family is still available, that's fine too... just let me know ahead of time so I can focus on getting that parent in the frame more while they're still available. Finally, take a breath and relax... I promise to give the grown-ups (and kids) breaks throughout the session as needed, and to make it as painless as possible for everyone involved. If we are doing an in-home session at your house I won't judge you if you crack open a beer before I arrive - or better yet, serve mimosas with breakfast. Cheers!



STEP 3: this is the fun part:


Within just a few of weeks of your session, you'll receive an email from me letting you know that your photos are ready. Once you've had a chance to see them and marvel for a bit, you'll let me know which print collection you want to purchase. After that, you'll have a full month to select the specific digital files and print items you want to use to fill that collection... zero pressure!











 

 

 

 

 

 

give your photos the moment they deserve-


 

 

What you're going to do with your images is perhaps the most important aspect to consider when you're planning for a photo session, but it's all too often overlooked... all that time and money invested deserve a better return than photos gathering dust on a hard drive somewhere. You'll never get the same feeling looking at your photos on a screen as you will seeing them on your wall or flipping through the pages of an album, so I include a substantial print credit with every collection.

Displaying family photos prominently in the home can positively impact children's self-esteem. It helps them develop a sense of belonging, identity, and connection to their family. When children see themselves as part of a loving and supportive network, it reinforces their confidence and self-worth. Additionally, looking at these images triggers positive memories and reinforces a sense of stability and security, contributing to their overall emotional well-being.
