Photos weren't meant to be stored on your device. They should be admired in your home and bring warmth into your life. When ordering an album your one-of-a-kind album will be perfectly crafted to showcase your photos and protect your memories.

You've made it to session day! As you approach your session, keep in mind these 2 things:



Bring those furry family members with for extra special portraits.
Remember to bring a kennel/carrier for those loves while they are not being photographed.

06. Can we bring our pet?

Regular sessions are designed to capture a range of imagery. We will use different outdoor locations which will add to the variety. We do various poses standing, sitting and walking as well as more candid images of you interacting as a family.

05. How many poses will we get to do?

I like creating a variety of imagery for you to choose from. Depending on the Session you will see between 25-80 options to choose from. Special event sessions, which range from 15 minutes to 1 hour long, will see approximately 1 image/minute.

04. How many images will we see?

Yes!  You will have the option to order from a full range of products for your home as well as USBs, digital images and print release. 

03. Can we buy products after our session?

When selecting a location it is important to consider the lighting on the background and choose an appropriate time of day. Usually we want to be able to have the sun to our backs. 

02. How do we choose a location?

Our Session fees cover both the studio in Princeton or our acreage out in the country in Foreston. If you would like to use a special other location please book the custom option.

01. WHat are our location options?
