  • What to Wear:
    Always remember to be yourself and wear what is comfortable for you!  You can decide whether to have the portraits to be formal, or completely casual!Feel free to bring multiple outfits/accessories/sweaters to create fun interaction and diversity.  (Think of the whole family in pajamas or all of you wearing the same shoes.)Don’t shy away from patterned shirts or accessories such as hats and scarves – this adds more personality and fun to a photo shoot!  (If you choose solid colors, remember that the more saturated/muted the tone, the better!)

    Also think about the reason for your photo shoot:  Whether you will use these for the family Christmas card, senior portraits, to scrapbook later on, to hang in your home, or if they are “just because they’re cute,” photos.  Choose colors and accessories/props that will relate to what you desire the photo shoot to look like!

    Payment is due day of session.  You may pay with cash or by check.  Late payments will include an additional 30% Late Fee per week in which the payment is late.
  • Cancellation/Rescheduling Policy:
    Sometimes things come up and you may have to cancel or reschedule – and that’s okay!  If you need to reschedule your session for a different date or time, please try to do so at least 3 days prior to our scheduled date.

    If you cancel/reschedule your session with less than 24 hoursnotice before our scheduled time, or if you do not appear for the session we had scheduled, a Late Cancellation Fee will be imposed.  This late fee is 30% of the session amount you had scheduled for previously.  You must pay this fee in order to re-schedule a new session date or time.

    If weather is an issue, that is okay, too.  Sometimes it makes for beautiful and stunning photographs.  Although, if you cancel due to the weather, the late fee you pay will be credited to you and applied to our next re-scheduled session within 6 months of our original date.

Feel free to email me @ to introduce yourself or to ask any questions!  We can discuss what you are looking for in your photo shoot, when you would like to meet, and how we can best use our time at the location you choose!
This photo shoot is for you, after all!

God Bless,
