Finding the right photographer for your family isn't a decision you should make lightly.
Take your time, do your homework, and come to your decision thoughtfully. You'll be so glad you did.
What should we wear?
Whatever. You. Want. Wear what you would wear on a lazy Saturday morning when nothing is on the schedule. Let your children pick their own clothes.
What should we do?
Some families want me to photograph their everyday routine. Other families like to plan an activity or two, like cooking or baking together, gardening, playing a game... If your family enjoys doing it, then it’s safe to assume it’s worth photographing.
What if my children act out?
Children act out; it's going to happen. They have strong emotions that they're still learning how to negotiate. I won't stop shooting if you have to tend to a child's feelings, because teaching children how to adequately navigate difficult moments is part of being a parent. It's part of your story.
What if we need to reschedule?
At the time of booking, a retainer is required to confirm our date and time. If something comes up and you can let me know at least three days before the session date, I'll be happy to apply that retainer toward a future session.
Why should we choose you?
That I can't answer for you, because like any relationship, ours will be a relationship. I’m not just aiming my camera at you and pressing the shutter button. I'm going to be in your home, with you and the people closest to you. You’re going to want to make sure I’m someone you might enjoy having in your life for a little while.
A few people have been kind enough to say some really humbling things about working with me, so have a look if you like. I photograph a lot of local families, so if you recognize anyone, feel free to reach out to them directly.
