Family is such a big word that has many meanings depending on your experience and situation. One thing stays the same they are the ones we live and die for. Whether your family is the one your were born into or a motely crew you have gathered over the years, family is family. Those bonds stand the test of time and are always there to lift you up. When we write our legacy and our life story what moments with them will you put there? That time you went to some random park, because it was pretty to some pictures or Sunday dinner all together at Grandma's with the newest generation causing chaos while everyone else relaxes and talks about times gone by?
I don't know about y'all but I LOVE my best friends. To me they are as important to me as my husband and my children. They are part of the rock that keeps me standing. Sound familiar? Why is it then that of all the relationships we go out of our way to photograph, it is the one that always falls through the cracks? Now is the time to change that! Grab that bestie of yours and lets capture those favorite moments of yours together! They are just important to your story as one else, in some case more important, so lets show that relationship and that bestie of yours some love!
Each person on this Earth leaves a mark on it. You leave your legacy...you adventure. Some are sad, some are kind, some are even inspiring, but the one thing they have in common is their beginning. No matter who else enters or leaves your jstory, you will always be there, because it is yours to tell. Why not tell your adventure the way you see it? Why not celebrate yourself?
I know that might sound a little prideful or boostful, but is it really? You aren't doing it to show off to the world, you are simply doing it for yourself. Reminding yourself of the goodness in your life, the endless potential you have and celebrating how far you have already come!
Anything! lol Really the most important thing is that you are comfortable in it. Believe it or not how you feel in your outfit translates to your images. If you love what you are wearing and you feel fabulous we will see it, on the flip side if you uncomfortable or self conscious about what you're wearing we'll see that too. Don't worry though we can discuss it when we have your pre-session consult!
It is just that an experience. If you are looking for someone to just show up, snap a couples and call it good, I am not your gal. What I offer is much more.
Yes! 50% of the session fee is due at signing to reserve your date. Don't worry it all goes toward your session package! Check out the next question for more details.
Yes! Each session offers a select number of digital images and an album. I also offer a selection of other products if you wish to purchase things like prints, canvases, images or other such products.
Your gallery is available 2-3 weeks after your session and view-able during your in-person reveal. You will be able to download the digital images you have selected within 48hrs, but any products you want will take additional time since they won't be ordered until after your reveal.
Any digital images you have purchased will be delivered via online gallery. Physical products I look forward to hand delivering whenever possible! If however I can't do that then I will have them sent directly to your home!
My home base is in Lacey, WA, but I love to travel! You will often find me roaming the PNW. This place is so beautiful how could you not?
The story as it happens! Before the session we will chat about what are some of you favorite things (habits, details, items etc) that will be the most meaningful for you. I will look for those details and moments as we go about your session.
Somewhere meaningful to you and I love working in homes. If your first thought is "yikes my house is a mess I wouldn't want that!" Stop right there! No one's house is truly perfect all the time and where would the fun be if it was. Most of your memories are created within those four walls and when things move to the next chapter of life they will be some of the ones you will cherish the most.
If in home is not for you then lets talk about your favorite places besides your home. Your favorite places to explore, hang out or relax at.
Anything and everything! lol Wall colleges and photobooks are always top on my list, but there are tons of fun creative ways to display your images in a way that tell your story from image blocks to brag books. The only limit is your imagination or in my case my imagination and pinterest's inspiration.
Yes! I love to travel! While most of my sessions are within Thurston County, I am always open to traveling outside the area to work with you. Ask me about custom prices that includes travel.
