My goal is to make this as stress free and enjoy, dare I say...fun?...for you as possible! Most of my families/clients are really surprised at how relaxing it is to do a session in this style and with me. There is no need to get dolled up more then you normally do, bribe the kiddos or worry about looking at the camera. You basically get to ignore that it's even there! Your main concern on the day is being in the right place at the right time and enjoying your family, spouse, or best friend, and I do the rest.
Any of my clients, really they are more like friends, will tell you I pour my heart and soul into your sessions. Trying to see everything through your eyes, so I can get the moments, emotions, and special corks that would mean the most to you. I have a big, sentimental heart and just as much as I want you to see what happened during your session, I want you to feel it too!
My big hearts comes in again here. lol I am a big giver and quickly realized that the only way to go was just to give you all the images from your session. I couldn't put a limit on them and make you choose and I wasn't about to try to choose myself! Just ask my husband I am horrible at trying to narrow down the images to give y'all. I get too attached to both you and your images.
Your session price cover your session experience, and your digital image files that will be put in a downloadable online gallery, that you will be able to keep for life and print as you see fit. I am also big on having something tangible to look at from all the moments in our lives, so in addition you will be getting a custom album, designed by yours truly from your session!

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! $200 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 ALL of your digital images and a custom album. I also offer a selection of other products if you wish to purchase things like prints, canvases, keepsake boxes or other such products.
Your gallery is available 2-3 weeks after your session and your album should arrive within 3-4 weeks though it can vary, depending on the mail service. Any other products you may want will take additional time since they won't be ordered until after your reveal.
All digital images will be delivered via online gallery and sent to your email. 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 especially when my talents are wanted! You will often find us roaming the PNW, or popping down south to New Mexico and Arizona. This place is so beautiful how could you not?
Your story as authentically as I can. 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. If you choose the more lifestyle route, I will guide you and your family, but I will still be looking for those special moments, details and emotion.
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! There are lots options!
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.
