Get in touch
Shoot me a message, a text, or give me a call! I'll answer all of your questions. Once you know you would like to book, we can schedule a date and plan the location. I recommend booking as soon as you have a date if the date matters so you can secure it.
If you book a newborn session, the session will be at my studio in Thousand Oaks.
We will discuss options for locations for outside sessions, but I plan to shoot at about an hour before sunset or after sunrise.
Pay Deposit & Sign Contract
I'll send you the invoice for the deposit and the contract to book. The contract will have a questionnaire about your session. This is where you can put any specific requests so that I can plan for them.
Once your deposit is paid, and the contract is signed, you're on my calendar!
Plan & Shop
Outfits can make or break photos.
If you're booking a newborn session, things are simple. I have pretty much everything you'll need. Just bring a neutral cami for mom and a neutral tight/well-fitting shirt for dad.
We put together coordinating outfits for all other sessions, not matching; we want personalities to shine through. I will send you a what to wear guide after booking, but I am more than willing to help you shop online. I love it when clients ask my opinion on outfits; I'm here to help keep things stress free.
On the day of your session, be sure to show up on time. For each session, the time is chosen for a reason.
When it comes to outdoor sessions, it's all about light. If you're late, I cannot guarantee we will have the light we need as I shoot natural light when on location.
For newborn sessions, I like to start my sessions at about 10; these are 3-hour sessions typically.
Wait & Enjoy
After the session, I will try to post a peek the same day. After that, it can take up to two weeks for me to edit your gallery.
When your gallery is ready, I'll send you a link, and depending on what package you choose, you can select or download your images from there.
Print. Share. Enjoy!
