How would you describe your style of photography?
At each session, I make sure we get some posed, everyone-looking-at-the-camera shots but many of the best shots are unplanned and candid. The image that might be a little less-than-perfect, but truly captures the spirit of your family and your children as they are, right this minute. I encourage play and laughter, with real interaction and expressions. I’ll be chatting with you and playing games with the kids throughout our time together. We’ll seek out beautiful natural light and backgrounds.
What location should we choose for our session?
Sessions typically take place outdoors or in my clients’ homes. For outdoor sessions, there are many parks in the Triangle to choose from, and I’m happy to provide location suggestions, including a few off-the-beaten-path spots.
What the heck do we wear?

The whole family is in town! Can you help with a group photo?
Yes! I happily photograph sessions for extended family or groups of friends. I also offer add-on mini sessions for individual families within the group. Get in touch for more info.
How and when will I view my images?
I provide my clients with a personalized, interactive and fun way to view your final images. About 7 – 10 days after your photo shoot, we’ll meet in your home for your Ordering Session. Here you’ll enjoy the first viewing of your images in a slideshow set to music. Then utilizing state of the art technology, we will create a variety of sample wall displays using your favorite images and the walls in your home. My clients love the one-on-one attention and guidance I give through the design process and together we craft the perfect products for their family. Since purchasing decisions are made at your Ordering Session, it’s important that all decision makers are present.
How long will it take to receive my prints, wall art products, or albums?
It will take approximately 6 – 8 weeks for your photography products to be delivered. Wall art gallery installation is provided for all of my clients if desired.
Can our friends and family view our images online and order prints?
Yes, they can! After our Ordering Session, you will receive a private online proofing gallery for simple purchasing options for family and friends.
What are the benefits of full service custom photography?
With today’s busy pace of life and families being pulled in many directions, my clients have been so appreciative of the customized approach. I work closely with you through the creative process from start to finish. The experience is designed to give you exactly what you want from the photo session and ensures you will have beautiful photography of your family displayed in your home – quickly and easily. My clients love their photos but even more they love the service I provide by giving one-on-one attention and guidance through the planning, photo shoot, ordering session and installation of galleries. Your time is precious so let me help you capture these moments in the life of your family and create lasting pieces of art for you to enjoy every day.
Can I keep my images private?
Each of my clients sign an optional model release before the photo session. If you prefer to keep your images private, you may indicate your request at that time. I will respect your decision and will keep your images completely private.
