If you have decided that you would like to hire me, here is what we need to do to get started!
First, make sure you have filled out and sent our contact form on the Contact Us section of the website. You will then receive a response from me within 12 hours. When a date and time have been agreed upon, I will email you an invoice through Paypal (you don't have to have Paypal to do this as you can check out as a guest) for a $50 deposit to reserve your date and time. I will also be sending along a contract as well as a form to gather some additional information about you and whoever will be in the photos and information to get a better feel of your vision for your photo shoot.
If you are unsure of location, styling or posing, please do not worry! I am more than happy to suggest several locations as well as assist you when you are picking out clothing ideas. I also know that many people can feel strange or silly when it comes to posing so I am glad to help provide examples as well as completely direct the shoot if you would like.
For those with children, it's super common for the younger kids to not want to cooperate and please DO NOT STRESS OVER THIS! Sometimes it means taking a little extra time to talk or play with your children before a shoot in order to help them feel more comfortable and that is fine with me! I always suggest bringing one or two things that you know might be able to grab your child's attention to help them look up at the camera. Singing, being silly and fun attention getting toys are all tools we use for this. Patience is KEY as your child will totally react badly when you are showing your stress. When I am shooting your session, I am NOT in a hurry. I have a 3 year old, so I understand!
You should enjoy yourself during your session and I will do everything in my power to help it be fun and memorable.
