LIFESTYLE SESSIONS

Sometimes the best places to be are right at home or in the yard. Is this where you spend most of your time? Are you always the one behind the camera? Why not document this time in your life with images of your everyday life. Something for you to treasure for years to come.

STEP ONE:
LET's BE FRIENDS

I don’t believe that lifestyle photography is one-size-fits-all! I know that my clients are unique and I work VERY hard to find them! I serve a very specific type of client who recognizes that if he or she wants joyful, genuine portraits of him or herself then they need more than just pretty pictures. They need an incredible EXPERIENCE! The first step towards working with me is determining if I am the perfect fit for you! After getting to know you online, I’ll determine if we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process!

STEP TWO:
SAVE THE DATE

Yay! Now that we're friends let’s make sure to pick a date so it's safe and secure so that we can make this dream a reality!!! I’ll send you a custom online booking proposal through my systen "honeybook" where you can review your package and pay your deposit to make everything officially official! Once you're official it’s time to get started!! ....

Up Next: Outfits and Timeline

STEP THREE:
OUTFITS & TIMELINE

Once we're a couple days out from your session we'll start talking about your timeline and what things you want captured. Typically we either do the morning or nighttime routine. Maybe you're making breakfast, playing games, cooking dinner, bath time fun with littles or tucking your sweet ones into bed after reading a story. I recommend wearing neutral colors as this will help capture the moments best. Wild patterns and characters on apparel will take away from the action of what's happening. Depending on everything you want captured I'll provide you a custom timeline.

Up Next: Your Session

STEP fOUR:
your SESSION

It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let me get to work! I believe in telling your full story so I prefer 1-2 hours so I can get a clear view of your routine naturally. When I first started this business God put it on my heart to create lasting relationships with my clients. This is why one of my favorite parts of the booking process is the time I get to read about who your are. After the session, you’ll be featured on the KH Blog! I take pride in sharing your story soon after your session. Anywhere between one to two weeks to keep you from waiting.

STEP FIVE:
Online GALLERY

After your session is over, you will receive an online gallery within one to two weeks full of all of your memories! I encourage my clients to sit down the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving the moments.
