the basics

Before the session…

When you decide to schedule a session, we will set up a short pre-session phone consultation to discuss ideas, answer questions, and decide on a location. Photo sessions are held at the location of your choice, either in our natural light studio in NE Minneapolis or “on-location” (in your home, at a favorite park, etc). We will also discuss preparing for your session, what to wear, and photo display options during the phone consultation.

During the session…

Come to the session prepared to have fun and interact with your family. I try to keep my sessions as laid back as possible. My goal is to photograph your family connections and interactions. Don’t be afraid to toss your children playfully in the air or snuggle with your spouse. This should be fun! Laugh. Joke. Embrace. Play. This will allow me to create images that show the true emotion and beauty of your family.  I don’t expect everyone to be looking at the camera and smiling in every photo and neither should you. Especially with young children, be prepared to step back and allow me to interact naturally with your child to capture the true essence of their personality.

After the session…

We’ll take a lot of photographs during our time together. I will then choose the best from the bunch to edit and perfect. The typical turnaround time is two weeks, but I also post a few sneak peaks on my social media pages to tide you over because I know that waiting can be the worst! When all the images are finalized, you will receive an email with a link to your online gallery where you can view/order your images. Online galleries are available for viewing and ordering for 10 days. During this time, we will schedule a design consultation to choose photo products that are just right for you and your home. Prints and other photo products will be delivered by mail within 3 weeks of placing your order.
