Before Your Session

Planning For Success With A Personal Consultation

Good planning is the best way to create a successful portrait session, and I make it easy with a personal consultation in your home, my studio, or your favorite coffee place. Our pre-session get-together is our chance to get to know each other and to coordinate all the details for the timing and location of your photo shoot. It’s also an ideal time to discuss your specific goals, and how you plan to display and share your family portraits.

All Your Questions — Answered

I’m happy to offer expert guidance for the style of your shoot, what to wear, the ideal location, and the best ways to get the most from your beautiful new family portraits — everything from decorating your home with canvases, to the best options for framing, displaying, and sharing your prints.

Professional Photo Products To Inspire You

For inspiration, I also like to bring examples from my favourite sessions — actual finished items including canvases, albums, image boxes, accordion books, and other photo keepsakes. My goal is to give you a true sense of the wonderful products and possibilities available to help you display, care for, and share your family portraits. During our meeting I’m also very happy to work with you on wardrobe options and any other details or questions.
