The Heart & Home Portrait Experience

I believe in providing you with the best possible experience and heirloom quality printed products that will last for generations. 


step one: The consultation

Your full-service photography experience begins with an in-person consultation with me. I care about getting to know you and making sure I am the perfect fit for your photography needs. I also know that time can be a scarcity for busy parents, so one quick meeting is the most time effective way to make an action plan for your session in terms of date, location, desired images, and wardrobe. I have learned that the smoothest and most successful photography sessions are those that have a plan in place ahead of time and this is why the consultation is so important. Another goal of this meeting is to view print and product samples so we can begin to get an idea of what you would like to do with your images after the session. Consultations can take place in your home or my home office and typically last no more than 30 minutes. 


step two: The Session

The best pictures are always the result of having the best experience. A session with Heart & Home is relaxed and focused on the connection and love between you and your family. You can expect a mix of lifestyle, documentary/candid, and some posed traditional portraits. Thanks to the consultation, we are able to shoot the session with intention, making sure to get the images that are most important to you. It will be paced to keep young children engaged and to adapt to the unpredictable needs of newborn babies. Sessions with Heart & Home are not stressful experiences. You begin the day with complementary hair & makeup services for one session participant so that you can be pampered and feel your best. If you're worried about a rambunctious toddler or older sibling, please know that as a mother and former early childhood educator, I am extremely patient and understanding with my littlest subjects.

Step three: The ordering appointment 

About one week after our session, we will have an ordering appointment. This is when you are able to view the images from your session and order the fine art products that are the best fit for your family. We work together to design custom framed wall art and albums that match your design style and suit your needs. I want to make it as easy as possible for you to start enjoying your images in a tangible way and to ensure that they don't end up wasting away on your hard drive for years to come.
