Order & Design Appointment
Your Long Term Plan
the order & Design appointment
Let's talk about your session goals. What are the results we're looking for? We'll discuss everything from what to wear, how you plan to display your images, to the location. The pre consultation is where all questions are answered and every little detail is discussed. Pre consultations take place on the phone. My goal is to establish a great relationship and create art for your home.
Sessions can sometime seem stressful for families. From hoping the kids will behave, convincing dad to participate, to wondering what to wear all may have been challenging for you in the past. That will stay in the past because sessions with me are fun filled! I always let the kids show their personality - those make the best photos. With proper planning, you will feel confident with your color scheme for clothing and dad will enjoy it too!
Shoots take place in an indoor location in Carrollton. I work with controlled lighting and well as props. I strive for my sessions to be relaxed. Let's bring in some of your favorite music! When it's warm outside, I shoot sessions in a number of scenic locations around town to get breathtaking results. We can shoot at a location special to you or I can suggest one. I'm committed to working with you and your family to create timeless art for your home.
This is the fun part! The ordering appointment is when we come together and design the right pieces for your home. You will finalize your portrait order - so be sure both mom and dad are present. We'll sort through each image and see how they look in an album or wall art. I specialize in wall galleries and heirloom albums and stand out with one of a kind products. Let's get started!
About 3-4 weeks later, your art will be ready for pickup. I will email you to make arrangements. I can't wait for your portraits to be hanging on your walls so you can admire them daily! Your children are growing so fast and these are extremely important to you.
That's not all! My families return year after year. Your children grow and you'll need to update your portraits. We'll build on what we created in the past and restart the process.
FOR THE glowing mama and precious baby
Congratulations, glowing mama! Whether this is your first child or third, I want this to be the best experience for you.
You don't have to worry about things such as: not knowing what to wear, if the kids will behave during the session, or if your spouse will cooperate - I will guide you through it all!
Maternity sessions should be booked by the end of your second trimester. Sessions are best completed during week 32-36 weeks of pregnancy to get a nice, round belly.
Newborn sessions should be booked as early as possible to ensure you receive a session when baby is born. Baby is best photographed between 5-14 days old.
Oh what a fun and and adventures time for your little one! I love capturing milestones such as sitting, crawling, and walking! Session should be scheduled 4-6 weeks after completing a milestone so baby is strong enough for the session.
The best part about these sessions....they can be themselves. Don't worry about if you think they won't behave or eat the cake. I will guide you through the entire process to capture great moments.
Cake smash sessions can incorporate any theme and should be booked 6-8 weeks prior to their first birthday. Once booked, we'll shoot for the session to be completed at least 5 weeks prior to the birthday to ensure images are completed to display at their party.
they matter most
Family sessions are perfect for creating and updating wall art, framing for your office, as well as gifting to family and friends. Sessions are held indoor or on location.
I'll help guide you and your family during the entire process and assist with how to look your best, wardrobe inspiration guides, and how to get Dad to smile.
