All sessions are done at a location of your choosing. Sessions can be done at a park, local buildings, my house or even in the comfort of your own home. I’m based out of Aurora, Co and love to travel to the surrounding areas. A few times a year I will set up mini sessions for special events.
I take my time and things are never rushed. A typical session can last from thirty minutes to two hours. Like life, things never go as planned, so I make sure to make sure we have plenty of time to capture your memories.
I’ve found that kids are more themselves in a place they are familiar with. Though I can’t work miracles with locations, I can usually take great pictures no matter where we are. Babies under six months usually do best indoors (unless it’s warm enough out!!). Since I am by appointment only, you will never have to wait in line to get your pictures taken.
Clothing choices should be casual and comfortable. Busy prints and patterns do not photograph very well. Try to avoid having your child wear themed clothing such as an Elmo t-shirt or a Winnie the Pooh jumper. We want your child to be the focus of the photograph, not the character.
Bright colors are highly encouraged as well as funky hats, pretty skirts, and boots. Wear something fun!!
If yours is a family session, try to coordinate colors. Khakis and jeans are always good choices along with a nice shirt. Try to avoid wearing sleeveless shirts and shorts. No matter how thin your arms are, they tend to look larger in photos!
Maternity sessions should be taken in clothes that make you feel beautiful and comfortable. However, jeans with a black or white tank top is always a popular choice for photos! Also, I recommend bringing a pair of button down jeans for the belly shots.
If you need assistance in clothing choices, I’d be more than happy to help.
About two weeks after your session I will contact you with directions and a password to view your proofs. All images will be saved for three months... after that period they are deleted permantly.
Most retouching is included in your session fee, but extensive work can be done for a fee. As a general rule I don’t re-touch children’s photos. I also can not work miracles. If you’re unhappy with your looks I can not help you. You’ll have to take that up with your maker! Extensive editing can be done for $5.00 per photo.
If you need to cancel, I must have 48 hours notice. If you or your child are ill, please do not hesitate to cancel. Photos are no fun when you are sick. I will do my best to fit you into another time slot.
Because photography is artistic in nature, I DO NOT offer or issue refunds. If you are unhappy with your session I will offer a reshoot at no cost to you.
If there are any questions you have about booking a session with me. Please don’t hesitate to ask.
I look forward to hearing from you!
