If you haven’t had the custom portrait experience before, you’ll be pleasantly surprised that I am here to guide you every step of the way.  Here’s how it works:


1 – THE CONSULTATION:  This is our time to start planning your session.  We can chat over email, on the phone or meet in person at my studio, where we will go over session and location ideas, wardrobe options, and talk more about what types of images you’re looking for.  We’ll also talk about what you plan to do with your photos, whether it be decorating your home with wall art, telling a story with an album, or giving them as gifts.  This will give us a clear idea of what type of images to shoot for on the day of your session.



2 – THE SESSION:  Sessions can either be photographed at my spacious St. Paul studio or on location.  All sessions include use of the studio wardrobe and simple props.  They typically last 45-90 minutes (2-3 hours for newborn sessions), and are very laid back.  I will most likely make a fool of myself at some point trying to get genuine smiles, and there’s usually a group hug thrown in for good measure.  I love capturing family connections, and I want you to look back on these photos and remember all the laughs, the giggles, and the love you have for each other.



3 – THE ORDERING APPOINTMENT:  This is everyone’s favorite part!  Your photos will be ready for viewing approximately two weeks after your session.  At this point, you’ll be invited back to my studio to view your images.  I’ll be there to help answer any questions you have and help with the design process.  All orders should be placed at this time.



4  –  THE DELIVERY: Your finished artwork will be ready for delivery in approximately two weeks (slightly longer for framed work and albums).  Your order can be picked up at the studio (where it will be displayed for you to look over before you take it home) or it can be delivered to your home.    CLICK HERE to see some of our favorite ways to display your family’s art.
