One week after your photo session we'll hop online for a viewing session to view your images and select a package. You then will come back to my studio on your scheduled ordering session date. You will be able to enjoy refreshments while viewing your beautiful photographs on a custom slideshow. I will guide you through choosing products to display in your home, as well as any add-ons you want to send to family and friends. I will show you the best images from the session. Please have all decision-makers present, as you will be placing your order that day - payment is also required at that time.
Your products and digitals will be ready for delivery within 2 weeks after your ordering session. Please allow up to 4 weeks for custom albums. I will contact you when your products have arrived and we can arrange for you to pick them up at my studio.
Life is fleeting: it happens so fast and suddenly the moments we are living today are yesterday’s faint memories.
Your baby grows from a fresh newborn snuggling on your chest to a wide-eyed wonder filled with curious, fearless abandon…and it happens in the blink of an eye.
My passion is to preserve these memories.
Remind you just how beautiful the little fleeting moments in life truly are.
And to curate these images for you to cherish forever
