what to expect

Typically family sessions last anywhere from 1 to 2 hours (but we can do less or more if you wish) and take place outdoors -- in a park, a cool urban setting, on the beach -- any place that you feel comfortable and represents your style. I try to make appointments for the morning or afternoon hours when the sunlight is softer.  With little ones it's a good idea to schedule your session for right away in the morning or just after nap time -- whenever they are typically at their best!

what should we wear?

In general, solids work best. Avoid wearing busy patterns or logos because they can be distracting. Blacks and whites don't photograph well, so I recommend avoiding them. Large prints and logos can be distracting especially in a group so they should be avoided as well. Of course these are just guidelines and there are exceptions to every rule :)

I think it is a good idea to consider the time of year of your shoot and the colors of the grass and foliage that will be in the background.  Try to coordinate with each other without matching.  If in doubt, please ask --  I am very happy to give you my input :)

when will my photos be ready to view?

Your digital proofs will be presented in an online, password protected gallery within 1 week following your photo shoot. You will have 2 weeks to view your images at your convenience and may share them with family and friends via the internet to order from. After 2 weeks your gallery will become inactive and there is a $25 fee to reactivate your gallery.
