HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
I try to keep my family photography very natural, capturing the action as it happens. I try to emphasize lots of fun with little posing prompts thrown in when needed.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
Don't worry! Your session comes with styling assistance if you would like and a PDF style guide to help you get started.
DO YOU TAKE ANY TRADITIONAL POSED SHOTS?
Of course! I will spend some time taking portraits of you together as a family, especially in the beginning of our sessions. Once those are done I find most families are more relaxed and ready to have some fun.
HOW DO I VIEW PHOTOS AFTER THE SESSION?
I will send you a link to view your gallery and download your high resolution photos within two weeks of your session date.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
If it is overcast we can still have the session, though we may alter the time a little bit. If it is raining I will provide a few alternate dates that works best with your family.
WHERE DO PHOTO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
I will work with you on finding the perfect location. I love doing sessions at Wolf Trap and Meadow Lark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, VA. I am open to other locations as well and love to explore new places. Places that hold a significant meaning to you and your family are always great as well.
WHAT TIME DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
I'm a light chaser. Meaning I love to shoot when the light is optimal. Sessions can start at sunrise or about an hour before sunset.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?
I get it, life happens.If something unavoidable comes up I will work with you to reschedule your session for a date that works best for both of us.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
Fun. The number one thing I hear after a session was that the Family/Couple had fun. I am a storytelling photographer. What that means is that I like to observe what makes you, you and photograph your natural interactions with those your love. Nothing too posed, or stiff. I will direct you into some shots and encourage you to be yourselves which means no awkward fake smiles + lots of relaxed good times.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
YES! Contact me for more details :).
