Here’s a little sneak peak into how your portrait experience will progress. If you haven’t worked with a professional photographer before, it can seem a bit overwhelming - but I promise you, it’s a breeze. This step-by-step guide will help you from your initial inquiry to delivery of your finished products.

step 1- get in touch

Once you have looked through my site and have decided that we might be a good fit for each other, feel free to contact me either by filling out the form or by calling me directly 765.490.6222.

step 2 - book your session

After our initial chat, I’ll send a link for you to pay the session fee. This will reserve your session date. I’ll also send a form for you to fill out online so I have all of your contact information. I will also be emailing you with a Prep Guide and am here for any questions you have. My biggest priority is helping you feel confident before the session!

step 3 - before the session

Browse my website again. Especially the blog and portfolio pages. This will help give you a feel for the sort of clothing that works well and the type of images we will create. If you need guidance or help, I am here for you!

Start thinking about what you’d like to create with your images in terms of photographic wall art and/or albums. Most of my imagery is neutral and timeless, and compliments most home decor. If you’d like, we can also meet at my studio for a pre-session consultation so you can see everything in person. A helpful resources is my finished products page for inspiration.

step 4 - your portrait session

This is where the fun really begins! My sessions are laid back, relaxed, and intimate. I focus on your beautiful relationships.

All sessions for newborns, babies, and small children are baby-led. I follow their cues a and allow them to warm up to me and my camera. For family photos, I aim at capturing a variety of shots: more posed and also cuddly, lifestyle shots. My goal is to capture the authentic, candid connections between you and your loved ones.

step 5 - image selection

Your images will be ready for viewing approximately 3 weeks after your session. For your image selection and ordering, you have the option to view your images in an online gallery or to come back to the studio to view your images and place your order.

For the online gallery, your images will be uploaded for viewing for 3 days, and I will be available to answer any questions you have via phone or email. (Best for out of town clients).

For the in-person image selection, I’ll have you back to the studio to view your images. We’ll watch a slideshow of your images and sort through the proofs to find your favorites. I’ll be there to answer any questions, show samples, and provide expertise on what works best to create your ideas from step 3. Together, we will create something amazing for your home.

All of your artwork comes finished and ready for display, with a range of products to suit everyone’s style and budget. Matted frame-ready prints start at $75 and ready to hang wall art starts at $350 for a frame and matted print. Most clients spend $750-$2500+ on a mixture of artwork and digital files, but there is no minimum purchase requirement - you are free to spend as little or as much as you would like.

step 6 - Collection

Your finished wall art, prints, and album will be ready to be collected from the studio approximately 4-6 weeks after your Image Selection Appointment.

The artwork is made with the highest quality products available to the photographic industry.

As soon as images are ready to be collected I’ll be in touch to arrange a date for pick-up.
