From the minute you book your session to your final gallery delivery, my goal is to make you and your loved ones as comfortable as possible. I wish for my clients to never walk into a session with worries or unanswered questions.
So, you do not see the answer to your question below, never ever hesitate to reach out to me- head to the contact page now!
"How do I book a session?"
Contact me! Email, cell phone, private message on social media; whatever works for you! We will start by chatting to learn a little bit more about you, your family and your vision for our session together! Then we willl talk package options and set your date!!
"What if my child(ren) don't cooperate?"
They're kids! Don't even worry about this!
My job is to bring out natural, genuine smiles in your family.
If that means making funny noises, tickling, jumping up and down..
That's what I'll do!
"What if I need to reschedule?"
Not a problem. Once a deposit is paid, you are on the top of my priority list!
I totally understand that people get sick, mother nature doesn't always cooperate the day of your session, things happen!
Please try your best to let me know as soon as possible and I will find you a new date immediately!
"Can we bring our dog?"
Fur babies and family pets are always welcome here!
Mixing children and pets can often get hectic, but oh so cute to photograph!
There is an additional fee added on to your session and my only request from you is that you bring along someone extra with you to handle your pet during photos that do not include him/her.
"What should we wear?"
This is all up to you!
A few things to think about would be:
Coordinating- Stick with the same general color scheme throughout your family for a clean organized look.
Future- If you choose to print and frame your images, will it match your home decor and wall colors? Is it timeless and classic? These photos should never go out of style!
"We have never had photos done before, I'm not sure how they will turn out."
Hey! There is a first for everything! My goal is to make this fun, comfortable and enjoyable for all of us. I am open to any and all ideas and you will NEVER hurt my feelings by saying you do not want/are uncomfortable doing something I suggest.
I will do everything I can to make your little ones giggle, mamas less stressed and even make those parents that have the "Let's just get this over and done" attidue enjoy their experience as well! Everyone deserves memorable photos to look back on, there are only so many selfies with your loved ones you can take and that is why you have me!
"When will we recieve our photos?"

"Where are you located? Do you travel?"
My studio is located in Dover Plains, NY.
Yes I travel! I always love meeting new people and exploring new places!
