TIPS FOR SESSIONS WITH CHILDREN:
1. GET THEM EXCITED ABOUT THE SESSION IN ADVANCE.
Kids and adults alike want to know what is coming. An idea could be to plan a surprise, such as a trip to the ice cream shop or a night out at a favorite restaurant.
2. FEED THEM.
Full tummies (or at least not hungry tummies) make for happy kids. If you are planning a family dinner out afterwards, give your children a snack before dressing or pack some (non-messy) snacks for the road. Children are more likely to be restless and easily upset when they are hungry.
3. BRING ALONG THEIR FAVORITE TOY OR COMFORT.
If your child needs a break from pictures to snuggle up, it’s nice to have that comfort on hand. In fact, including that “snuggy” in some pictures speaks to what your family life is truly like at this time and someday you may look back on those pictures warmly remembering when your little one just couldn’t bear to be without that object.

WHEN WILL I SEE MY PHOTOS?
Check my Facebook page within 48 hours for a sneak peek! If your purchased package includes a set number of images, then look for an email containing your own private proofing gallery. This will be sent within 2 weeks of your session date. Once your selections are made, I will artistically hand edit, enhance, and retouch those images. When your gallery is complete, you will be able to download your final images and print them as you wish!
*If you have purchased an all inclusive package, then you will not receive a proofing email, but your entire edited gallery within 3-4 weeks of your session.
I am looking forward to our time together! It’s going to be fun!
