I want to capture your childs’ innocence, your families bond and you and your sweethearts love. I want your session to be a memorable experience and something you will remember and cherish for years to come. A time where you and your children can be yourselves…together. My process is simple and I want your experience with me to feel nice and easy.
Part of your experience is that I get to know your family. It is extremely important for me to gain the trust of your little ones at your session. Your booking form includes a small questionnaire that helps me get to know your family a little better including what your children like and even what they don’t like. I want to be able to connect with everyone and these little details help make our time together fun and memorable. Once your booking form is filled out and the session fee is paid, your session is on my schedule.
Pre-Consultation and Studio Wardrobe
A pre-consultation can be done over the phone or at the studio to discuss any questions you may have about your upcoming session. I understand that wardrobe planning for any session can be stressful in itself; therefore I have a curated collection of baby, children, and mommy wardrobe that is available for use at the studio for all the sessions I offer. I have had clients come in and I style all of them (I even do have neutral tees for Dads!). This takes the natural anxiety out of planning your families’ wardrobe for your shoot. My clothing style is very classic, light and airy, with beautiful textures in white, cream and grey as well as light pastels such as pink, light blue and coral. Because I’m not really shopping for a certain size, but a style or color, I am able to look for variety of wardrobe and I am constantly adding new pieces all the time! All sessions include a complimentary wardrobe consultation to discuss any and all ideas.
Hair & Makeup Services
On the day of your session, we want you to look and feel gorgeous! If you want to be pampered, we have an amazing hair & make-up artist IN HOUSE who specializes in making you look and feel your best in front of the camera! She knows exactly what style looks great on camera and what goes well with our wardrobe.
My mission is to create a fun environment where the personality of each individual is shown through the photograph and you can just be you. We will discuss what kind of location is best and the overall style you are looking for. Sessions can be done outdoors in the beautiful golden light about an hour before sunset at one of my favorite field locations. Sometimes an indoor session is the best option because of the heat or because your baby is usually asleep at 7pm; therefore we always have the option of having your session at my cool natural light studio located at 4310 Bailey Rd Suite 104 in Pearland. I have a collection of blankets, stools, baskets, wood toys, florals, candles, etc. and we can always incorporate any items that have deep special meaning. To ensure a relaxed, no pressure session, I invest as much time as necessary in order to capture all the images needed for you to fall in love with your final gallery. Depending on the session type, your session may vary from 30 min to 2+ hours.
In Person Viewing and Ordering Session
You will see your images for the first time at your in person viewing and ordering session about 2-3 weeks after your session. At this appointment, you decide what fine art products you’d like to purchase from the A La Carte Menu or choose from one of our bundles or collections with significant savings. You will be able to touch and feel the quality of all of our heirloom pieces that will live on your walls and coffee tables for years to come at the studio and ordering appointment.
Bundles that include both digitals and prints begin at $595+tax. Custom built Heirloom collections include your digital images on a wood USB for archival purposes, your keepsake proofs beautifully packaged, gift prints and your choice of professionally framed fine art prints, canvases, and/or heirloom albums. The goal to keep in mind is how will you display these beautiful images we create together in your home. Creating meaningful and tangible art for your home is why we do what we do. I will be there every step of the way to help you figure out which of your favorite images will be on your walls.
I believe digital images do have a place in today’s world for archival purposes therefore your entire gallery is available on a USB with all collections, but those same digital images can be forgotten (remember that CD you still have in your drawer from the last time you had photos taken) or lost (they were on your old computer that is no longer running). It is important that we get those beautiful images we created into heirloom artwork whether thats on a canvas, a framed print or an album. All of the available pieces we offer are top quality and one of a kind by custom professional vendors. These heirloom art pieces are what you want to be able to tell the beautiful moments of your family’s story.
We love showering our clients with special surprises and promotions therefore with the purchase of all signature sessions, our yearly Halloween Costume portrait events are complimentary!!
