What an amazing fall day to take pictures. I just adore this family…. as well as the colors and the energy in their pictures!

We invite you to call us to discuss which images you want to print. You may be surprised at the number of options you have for print, and we will provide a professional perspective, but also candid advice. We can share what we know about image sizes and what will look best for what you need. Will your photograph look good as a 5×7? Would a white frame or a natural wood frame better complement your image? Will digital images be the right solution for you? We’re here to help.
We deliver proofs one week after your photo session. In addition to this unparalleled delivery time, we present your photos through a password-protected online album.
It’s a wonderful moment when all our years of preparation and training come to a focal point, when during a seemingly chaotic photo shoot we can achieve that shot you’ll treasure. When you see your proofs, you see what we saw during that instant between the push of a button and when our lens snaps closed.
You can look through your pictures from home or work, on your schedule – not ours. You can share them with friends and family – and when you’ve had a chance to review the images and pick your favorites, it’s time to make your selections.
After the Shoot Is When the Real Work Begins. The majority of the service we provide occurs behind the scenes, through our pixel-by-pixel examination of our best photos.
We often spend hours editing individual photos. We meticulously comb through photos and make necessary adjustments. We examine the lighting and adjust the contrast or shading to achieve the right composition. We adjust hue and saturation. We smooth and clarify skin, and work to bring all the visual elements to show that moment of life in rich, spectacular detail.
Experts Behind The Lens, Thriving In Real-Life Situations
Now that we have our plan in place, you can relax and enjoy the photo session. People often tell us that our photo sessions are surprisingly easy, relaxed and enjoyable.
We’re going to have fun! Your kids are going to do the things that they like best – and we’re going to catch them being genuinely happy doing it. They’re going to play and you might even be asked to play with them. It might be the best kissing, cuddling time you’ll have with them all week.
Remember, it’s OUR job to make sure the photos are fabulous. You don’t have to worry when your child doesn’t behave perfectly. Many of our greatest photos are from kids doing things that are completely natural and unexpected.
We don’t achieve great pictures by accident, and we want to deliver the best photographs we can, so we need a plan.
Once you’ve scheduled your photo session, we will create a detailed plan for your shoot. This 15-20 minute phone conversation will be between you and your photographer and will take place a week or two before your photo session.
We will talk about your children – their interests, their personalities, their tendencies, what makes them happy. We will talk about what kind of photos you want (pictures of who, doing what, and where). Of course, this doesn’t mean that we can’t adjust the plan later on, but having a clear plan ahead of time helps to ensure that we’re fully prepared to get the best photos we can.
When you know that we have a plan, you can relax and just enjoy the picture-taking experience. The whole session is more fun!
We would love to talk with you about your interest in a photo session. Not only about the date and time of your session, but also about what you’re looking for. Certainly, we love it when people call us knowing that they want to schedule a session. In that case, we’ll talk about what time, date and location works best for you and your family. But we also love when people call us to discuss whether we’re the right fit for their family. Our goal is always to make sure that you get the best photos possible.
