"Melissa!! We are soooo in love with the photos! You did an amazing job of capturing [our son's] playfulness and cute little attitude. Thank you so much!!"

--K.S. (family session, child portrait session)


Pre-Session Consultation

Before your session, I like to get to know more about you. I care about your experience during your session and want to provide the best for you. The pre-session consultation is for me to learn more about your personality and what special details you want to capture from your session. We will talk more over the phone, a week or two before your session, or in person over coffee or at your place. Meeting at your place is also a great opportunity for me to see what type of portraits may fit with your style and where those amazing new photos will be displayed.


It’s Go Time!

On your session date, we may exchange texts to discuss any last-minute details or even just to discuss any final accessory choices. I totally understand how this time may be super stressful, but let me take some of that stress from you. On-location or at your location, I want this to be fun for you and your family, let you make some beautiful memories. Try not to think about getting it perfect, because I will make sure your images are everything you ever wanted! Believe me, as a mom, I totally understand the pain & success of getting everyone dressed and out the door – you deserve a medal just for that one mom! Now, let me take it from here. I will try to ease some nervousness by telling really bad jokes and putting you in funny poses, and maybe I’ll just let the kids take over for some fun. After a few silly faces and funny phrases, I will have you all at ease and before you know it, I have captured some amazing moments you will cherish forever!



I can’t control myself with your beautiful images and have to share them right away! Keep your eyes peeled for a sneak peek on my social media pages. I like to post a couple images I captured during your session that I just think are too cute not to post! Feel free to tag and share with friends and family.


The Reveal & Delivery

After 2-3weeks, your images will be ready! I will meet with you to present them in a digital gallery for viewing. Here we will ooh and aah over all your gorgeous images and select your faves. Be prepared to make your purchases at the time of this session. Collections range from $500 to $1500, include digitals files AND fine art mounted prints, plus exclusive specials I only offer during the reveal session. I will bring along some examples of the heirloom products I offer and talk more about which portrait collection is perfect for you. I can even help you create the perfect wall gallery for your home, so you can actually see what your collection will look like. Within two weeks after the reveal session, your images and products will be delivered, ready to be loved forever!
