I am a full service photographer. What does that mean? I want each session to meet your needs and go beyond to deliver you beautiful digital images and art that will be loved by you and your family for generations. It all starts from the beginning by meeting up or discussing over the phone or email the details about what you are looking for, and how we will create it. Here is an overview of what the process is like so that we can get you those images you will treasure!

 

Initial contact

 

I can meet you for a pre consultation in my studio in Sumner, WA. This is a great opportunity for us to meet view the studio and prop options for newborns, gown collection for maternity, and see what the quality of products are available from your session whether it’s a portrait, wedding or senior session.

We can also meet for coffee at a location closer to you, or do your consultation over the phone or email.

 

Booking

 

Once we have gone over the details of your wedding, newborn, maternity or portrait session it is time to book. I will reserve your date for your session with a paid session retainer, or 25% for weddings. This ensures that your date and time will be reserved just for you. I can accept cash or check and all sessions and packages are subject to WA state sales tax

 

Session

 

We will be in contact about a week prior to your session to confirm times, location and any last minute details or questions you may have. This is when the magic happens!

 

Sneak Peak

24-48 hours after your session I will post a sneak peak of your images. This will give you a glimpse into the quality of images you will receive. The sneak peak is always my favorite part, because I know how excited my clients are to view their images. Generally, this is done through my Facebook page, but if you have any privacy concerns please let me know to make other arrangements.

Viewing Appointment

 

Approximately 2-3 weeks after your session we will meet to view your gallery (Wedding clients will be 45 days). At this appointment, we will spend about an hour going over your images, selecting your package, and designing your art! Payment for all products is due in full at this time. If you need payment arrangements I would be happy to discuss options for you.
