A Professional Photographer is a great choice if you are wanting an on location shoot (home, park, beach). It will be a relaxed environment, no rushing.
I am available most evenings and weekends. The soft, natural light of early morning or late evening hours yields outstanding photos!
Usually the best time of day is 10am or 5 to 8pm for outside sessions, especially the beach.
Overcast skies are ideal for beach sessions, but mother nature is not so predictable. Just before sunset is the next best option.
If you are scheduling a family or child session, be sure to take into consideration your child's sleeping and eating schedule before making your appointment.
Newborns are always beautiful regardless of whether they are naked or fully clothed. Newborn sessions can take place in your home, or at another location of your choice. You are welcome to bring (or have available) any baby items that are special to you (blankets or outfits, toys,hats, special shoes or booties, stuffed animal etc.) Please consider a diaper cover if you plan to keep your newborn in their diaper.
Children should be dressed in somewhat normal attire.In warm weather, boys look nice in polos and jeans or khakis. Girls look nice in sundresses or a skirt and shirt. For cooler weather, bold colors and textures look great! Knit sweaters and deep hues of color make for some excellent photos! Multiples changes of clothes are accepted and encouraged! We can even have some fun with a costume if you'd like!
Families should wear similar tones, but not necessarily similar colors. For example, dress everyone in natural earthy toned shirts and jeans.
Couples should have fun with their wardrobe. I encourage the ladies to wear bold colors and textures and the men to wear a solid color that coordinates with his partner. Multiple clothing changes are also acceptable for these sessions. I love one dressy outfit and one fun outfit, but of course it's ultimately your decision what you'd like to wear!
Seniors should bring a few changes of clothing and shoes. I suggest at least one dressy outfit and at least one casual outfit.
Can I bring changes of clothes? back
I am an on-location photographer. I do have a small portable studio, although my preference is to work outdoors.
However, if you choose to schedule an indoor session, We will need a room with alot of natural light.
Yes, I do have a session fee, It covers the cost of the shoot, my time and talent of editing photos, one session usually is 10-15hours of editing work alone. It also covers the cost of getting to the locations, and the wear on my camera and lens'.
I want it to be a relaxed and fun enviroment for everyone. I do not rush you through the session, I have as much time as needed. Usually they last 1-2 hours and can even go longer. I dont mind any clothing changes or prop changes. its all about getting that perfect photo! I want you to be happy!!!
I have a wide selection of props some of which are shown in the galleries. You may also bring your own props if you wish examples may be: crazy hats, that favorite blanket, precious toys, baskets, bowls, plates, flower pots, dress up clothes, fairytale/halloween type costumes, etc. Be as creative as you want ...
Yes I do offer a High Resolution CD of all the photos that turned out from your session. (This is not a copyright release, I do still OWN the photos. No editing of any kind is allowed!)
When will I see the online gallery?
Why do I have to sign a Model Release Form at time of sitting? back
I need the full payment at time of ordering. I use a professional printing lab. I have to pay before I get the prints. This insures that I am not personally out of pocket if you decide to never pick the photos up. top
