What will the session be like?

My sessions are relaxed and a lot of fun for families. You don't have to wonder what to do.  Throughout your session, I will suggest various poses and activities, but I am always looking to capture those in-between moments too when you are just enjoying your time together as a family.  I'm looking for those little moments of heartfelt connection, so I can provide people with images they truly love that show their family with authenticity and beauty. 


What if my child is really active?

Don't worry if your child s running about and active.  Most of the images on my site were captured while a child was busy playing and exploring.  I usually direct the adults to simply "be" with the child.  To get the most out of your session, bring snacks (non-messy) and water for short breaks during the session.  

What should I wear?

Be comfortable.  Neutral clothing with minimal print in complementary colors (not matching) seems to work best.  Keep the current season in mind.  If you would like my Pinterest board of ideas, let me know.


Where should we take the pictures?  

I can meet you for an in-home session, at my studio in Goochland, VA, or at an outdoor setting in the Richmond or Goochland area.  There are so many possibilities.  Let me know if you would like suggestions for a location.

What time of day is best?  

If we are doing photos indoors at your home, anytime between 10 am and 2 pm is ideal.  If we are doing photos outside, the two hours before sunset have the best light.

What if the weather is bad or someone is sick on the day of my shoot?  

Life happens and I want to work with you as much as I can.  We will find a date to reschedule, but please give me as much notice as possible so I can plan accordingly.

What does the session fee include?

Included with your session is your on-location photography session with up to 6 family members, edited digital images and print release.
