step one: Choosing your gift card
First we'll chat on the phone (to go over the gift cards options & talk about your goals for your session). I find a quick 10 minute call is the easiest way to fill you in on all the details and answer any questions.
After you've given the gift, The booking process is 100% online, and only takes a few minutes to pick a date/time on the calendar. I'll send along a questionnaire & session guide to the recipients that will walk them through everything from what to wear, and strategies for chaotic households (which are my favorite kind:) This guide has been refined for over 10 years and typically answers 90% of questions that come up.
And I'm always available if you have any q's.
step two: THE SESSION & what to expect
I'll touch base one week before the session to confirm the details with the recipient. This is a good time to discuss if the forecast is questionable or someone seems to be coming down with something, we can talk about rescheduling options. Otherwise, that's the perfect time to ask any last-minute questions.
step three: THE BEST PART! viewing & selecting your collection
- 2 weeks after the session, the recipient will receive an email letting them know that the slideshow & gallery is ready for proofing
- At that time they will select any digital images & use the print credit. I also have samples of all physical products I offer, and always love setting up a video call to go over print products together.
Session + Collections
My gift cards are petite versions of my documentary family photography experience. I find these smaller sessions are a perfect introduction for families who have never worked with me before, and offer a simple booking + session process, my favorite kind of gift.
All gift cards include session planning, the on-location session, equipment costs & online proofing slideshow + gallery, and a set number of digital files + print credit (more available from the gallery).

Why do i need a print credit and digital files?
What you're going to do with your images is perhaps the most important aspect to consider when you're planning for a photo session, but it's all too often the aspect that's overlooked... that thing that's put off year after year, a d
For years, my clients told me they loved their images but never got around to printing them. All that time and money invested deserve a better return than photos gathering dust on a hard drive somewhere. Yes, Digital files are convenient and serve a purpose.... but you'll never get the same feeling looking at your photos on a screen as you will seeing them on your wall or flipping through the pages of an album, so I include a print credit with every collection to encourage you to print your photos now.
What can I do with my Digital files?
Your digital files are selected and downloaded directly from your online gallery. You can share, print, etc. with your high-resolution digital files.
What can I do with my Print Credit?
Your print credit acts as a gift certificate in your online store. All of my favorite prints products are available from the online store.
I'm always happy to do a zoom chat to show some sample prints and answer any questions.
