WHY CHOOSE US?
SELECTING THE RIGHT FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER IS A DAUNTINK TASK. BUT WORRY NOT ... HERE’S WHY YOU SHOULD GO WITH US
QUALITY & EXPERTISE
Quality should be the primary driving factor because no matter how great the deal, you
barely have time to do it once, let alone time (or money) to do it over. This means a high
level of technical expertise, proper exposure of images, proper use of highlights and shadows,intentional composition with flattering light and angles, remarkable editing, and an overall consistency in producing quality images.
STYLE & VISION
Almost as important as quality and expertise is to find a photographer who has a style that resonates with you, and your life. A great photographer will take some time to think about the style of images you are looking for. Do you want studio (either classic and simple or with props for some shots) or do you want on-location or natural light, and if so, where? Where will you display your images and what are you looking to accomplish with them (i.e. wall displays in a casual or formal room, to compliment a display that has been built over time, a heirloom album showcasing your entire shoot)?
It’s extremely important that you choose a photographer whose galleries and portfolio reflect what you are looking for, and reflect it consistently without a constant changing style.
BEFORE YOUR SESSION
My sessions are mainly controlled by your desires. When you call in for a session, we will discuss your wants and needs for your portrait session. We will discuss location, clothing and anything else we need to know. Whether it is a formal, casual or mini session, I am confident that we can work with your family to achieve the imagery desired.
DURING YOUR SESSION
All sessions will take place on location and generally last about 60 minutes. Your session location may be a park, family farms, your home, etc. I’ve spent a lot of time scouting around for the best locations but always welcome your ideas! Often times, you know a location that best represents your family. I follow the lead of the family and the children for the session. I want to capture you just as you are. I’ll encourage families to interact with each other, tell jokes and just have fun!
AFTER YOUR SESSION
Sit back and relax! I’ll be hard at work editing your images and choosing the best ones to present to you. I know you’re anxious, so I will provide you with a sneak peak of what I captured within 24 hours of your session. You will find your sneak peak on my Facebook page where you can tag yourself and share with family members. Approximately 2 weeks after your session, you will receive an email from me with a link to your password protected gallery. Here you will find 20-30 edited images from your session.
Your gallery will remain live for as long as you wish. I will contact you about placing your print order. No product order will be placed until payment is received. Once your order is placed, it will take approximately 2 weeks for your order to be processed. When your order is complete, I will review your order for quality and deliver it to your home.
Enjoy your memories for a lifetime!
WHAT TO WEAR?
Be who you are and let your children be who they are! For family sessions, choose a color palette and arrange coordinating outfits, instead of matching onces. When photographing outdoors, I would encourage you to avoid green so you aren’t lost in the grass and trees of the backdrop (especially since Texas is green almost year round). Textures, layers and patterns all photograph very well. For a detailed what to wear guide please contact us.
