What to expect
A family photoshoot is an EXPERIENCE...
… an experience where you get to enjoy your family in a whole new way. Most families see a photoshoot as something to “get through”, because they can’t imagine their children cooperating.
I want you to start thinking about Photoshoot day in an entirely different light.
I’m a bit silly, a whole lot of fun, and the point is for your to join along. Why? Because what you will see in the final images is the energy you bring, and it’s my job to create the best possible environment for you to express yourself, and to capture how unique and fabulous your family is.
At the end of the day, don’t be surprised when your children ask: “Is Nicole going to play with us tomorrow?”.
All this to say… be prepared for me to make you laugh, and make a fool of myself. Trust me to capture your beautiful, tender souls, because you are MUCH MORE than faces in a frame.
To me, any way.
With a session fee of $325 and collections starting at $750, you’ll find that my work is neither the cheapest nor the most expensive in the area, and will be well worth your money and your time. The session fee covers my time, creative talent, guidance, skills with children and so much more. I treat each client with care and invest about a dozen hours of my time to ensure you have the best experience possible.
First we connect...
You LOVE what you see on my website & you've browsed the blog & the pricing section.
When you send me a message, be sure to to include the type of session you want.
We'll schedule a quick chat over the phone and go over what you can expect. If you wish to move forward we'll choose a date - ideally for a late afternoon session before sunset (warm, soft, even light).
Select the location
You'll want to choose a location that reflects who you are as a family. I’ll work with you to determine the best location for you! You guessed it, the beach is my personal favorite!
If it rains, we will simply reschedule the session (at no extra charge).
Get ready for your Photo Session
Your booking has been confirmed. Now look out for emails from me trickling into your inbox.
A couple of weeks before your session you'll receive a Questionnaire that will help give me more insight into who you are as a family, and soon after a What to Wear Guide and last: tips on how to prepare. I will plan a timeline based on your answers, and the activities you choose.
I follow up by email or text, offer advice and answer questions as we get closer to our session date.
It's starting to get exciting!
Photo Session Day!
By now you know what to expect and there's nothing more for you to do but...
RELAX, PLAY ALONG, HAVE FUN!
I won't ever ask your children to smile, and we'll be very active so you won't have time to think "What do I do?". If there are pauses, interact with each other and pretend I'm not there - that's usually when we get our best shots!
After the session I carefully select and edit the very best images. This takes up to 2 weeks.
You will receive a personal slideshow of a selection of your images. Make sure to sit down all together and get a hot beverage for everyone to enjoy (wine for the adults is a good option too...).
The slideshow will be your best guide in choosing your Collection.
Collections (each contains a certain number of digital iamges & print credit) range from $750-$1200, depending on how many digital images you would like and how much print credit you will want to shop in our online store. See below for more on Prints and Products!
Prints & Products
Shopping for prints and products is the fun part, but it's also the most important part! Printing your photos ensures that you have something tangible from our session that will last. I've curated your gallery store to include unique high-quality products at every price point.
I offer gorgeous high quality products such as heirloom albums, Wall Art, and Fine Art Prints.
Let me create beautiful heirlooms that you will keep for generations...
