Documentary photo sessions are not photo sessions in the traditional sense. The process looks more like me dropping into your life at a time you would want to remember, to make pictures that will truly matter to you.
STEP 1 [BOOKING]
Shoot me a message to let me know what you have in mind.
We’ll schedule a video call. You can ask me questions, as well as make sure that I’m someone you’d be comfortable with in your home. We’ll also talk about your life to figure out the best timing for me to be a fly on your wall.
You don’t have to make a decision during our call – discuss with your family and send a quick note to let me know whether or not you’d love to work with me.
To book, you’ll sign a session agreement and pay a retainer. The retainer counts towards your session package.
STEP 2 [ON THE DAY]
To have an honest record of your family, you should dress like you do every day.
Also, let your kids be themselves.
I will show up in comfy clothes and take my shoes off.
All real life is welcome. Really. Brushing teeth, bath time, nap time, feeding time – these are the moments where the gold happens.
STEP 3 [AFTER THE DAY]
You’ll get a link to your online gallery in 4 weeks, depending on the length of the session. (For Fresh 48 and newborn announcements I can send over a couple photographs quick.)
I can’t wait to hear your reaction about your photos!
You'll favorite the pictures you’d like in your photo book – or I can pick them for you.
You can buy prints or photo books beyond the package that you’ve purchased.
You'll let me know if there are images you do not wish to be shared online.
Reviews and referrals help other families find the right photographer for them, while they are also a great way to support my small business.
Until next time! I can’t wait to stay friends.
If I won the lottery, I would travel all over the world documenting family life in exchange for home-cooked meals. While waiting for that to happen – fingers crossed! – I have put together packages that bring you the best possible value while allowing me to keep serving you year after year.
You'll be grand-mothered in! When you book me every 1-2 years, your package price will remain the same regardless of price increases.
Documentary family photography is absolutely an investment, which is why I offer interest free payment plans up to 6 months.
