HOW IT WORKS
Your family photos should look like your family! As your Austin family photographer, I work with you to create gorgeous pictures you can cherish forever. Whether you have a specific location in mind, want to discuss the best way to showcase the images I create for you or want to pick my brain before you schedule a session, I’m more than happy to accommodate you. I want to be your full-service Austin photographer. Read more below.
The first step is getting to know one another. I’ll pick up
the phone and give you a call. We’ll chat about your vision for your family photos, what goals you have, where you want to take your pictures, where you would like to hang some wall art, or what album you like best, and any ideas you have in mind. During the call, I’ll also happily answer any questions you have for me.
I’ll even meet with you in your home to view some of my art
samples in person. If you’d like to get my input on the best place to hang your portrait or wall art, I’ll provide recommendations as well. I want you to feel completely comfortable and confident in your decision to make me your family photographer.
Once you’re ready to book me as your family photographer, a $500 retainer is due in full to reserve your spot on my calendar, and will be applied to your final purchase.
All sessions include my wardrobe selection assistance. Not sure what to
dress the family in to create the most attractive portrait? I’m happy to help.
I’ll use my professional photography and composition skills to recommend the
best color palette for your chosen location and home décor. You can send me pictures of outfits you have in mind, or I can come to your home and help you go through your closets for the perfect "what to wear." I am also happy to recommend my favorite stylist/personal shopper if you think new outfits are in order.
avoid patterns, as they may detract from your face
think textures: lace, ruffles, sequins and layers (scarfs, jackets)
accessorize with statement jewelry: variety of necklaces, long pearls, stacks of BRACELETS, or bold earrings.
tend to your manicure/pedicure so nails are not chipped
schedule your hair and makeup with your favorite stylist - or ask me if you'd like some recommendations.
Now that we’ve laid the foundation for incredible family photos, it’s time to take them! Expect your session to last anywhere from 45-60 minutes. I’ll do what it takes to make your experience completely relaxed, comfortable, and fun for the entire family. Be sure to tell your kiddos how
much fun the session will be. I can’t wait to capture their smiles and laughter! Remember, a happy family creates the best images.
in-person order session
The anticipation is nearly through. It’s time to see the images we captured during your portrait session. I’ll meet you in the comfort of your own home 1-2 weeks after your portrait session to go through the best photos from your set. You’ll also get a chance to see and hold the heirloom albums, canvas, and frame samples to select the best products for your family. Take your time making a decision, I want you to choose the best pieces for your home. Payment is due for all products during this session. Products start at $250 and most clients invest $1500-$6000

what does being a full-service photographer mean?
Being full-service means that my job isn't done if I simply provide you a gallery link or send you home with a disk full of photos you'll likely never use or only post on social media. You're busy and your time is valuable. That's why I offer a fully customized experience. I'll sit with you and help you choose the perfect wall art, album design or photos to fit your home. I want your experience to end with professional quality heirloom art for your home. Art that you'll be proud to pass down to future generations.
That sounds great! But, we are busy. What if we're running late for our session?
I will schedule the session to allow plenty of time, even if you are running a little late. However, I ask that you let me know, and provide me an ETA so I can ensure we get the photos you want. If you are running WAY behind, I can't guarantee we'll get everything, so being on time is the best.
Do you have a cancellation fee if we can't make our scheduled date?
The session retainer ($500) is non-refundable. However, we can move your photo session to another available date.
