let’s tell your story where it happens


That could mean lounging in the living room,

a trip to the park,

playing chase in the backyard,

or all of the above. 


 When you work with me, you are inviting me to be part of your life for a bit.

But don’t worry, I’ll answer all of your questions first.  


Here’s what working with me looks like…


before your session

We’ll talk about what you want from your photo session, and get to know each other. I like to learn about you, your pets, your family, what time of day or activity would work best for you, and answer all of your questions. We will talk about location and figure out somewhere that you feel connected to.

Once you’re ready to book a session, I’ll send you a link so you can complete the booking form, sign the session agreement, and pay your session fee. And once all that is complete you are officially booked!


during your session

Your photography session will last 2-5 hours, depending on which option you decided upon. Since the purpose of documentary photography is to capture real life, I encourage you to dress like you normally do, which probably isn’t matching outfits (unless you and your dog have matching outfits, then please wear those).

Let the kids be themselves, and don’t get stressed when your dog jumps or slobbers on me (or your kids for that matter). We want everybody to be comfortable and have a good time.


after your session

2-3 weeks after your session we will meet to review the images that were created (about 30-50 depending on the length of your session). We will discuss what you would like to do with the images, and what works best for you and your family.

I will guide you through options that include custom designed albums, framed archival prints, display boxes, and canvas gallery wraps. We will discuss how they would best fit into your home, and I will provide a variety of samples. Your order will be placed and production of your custom artwork pieces will begin.
