Click HERE to choose either of the two options (contact form or schedule a phone call) to get the ball rolling!

After our phone or email consultation, we’ll send you a contract, along with a digital invoice. Once your retainer fee is received, your shoot date will be reserved.




You’re not alone! We’ve been doing this for a long time and our goal is help you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. We can’t tell you how many clients who were initially dreading getting their pictures taken, got back in touch with us after a shoot just to tell us what a great time they had!



You can expect your session to last one-and-a-half to two hours. Depending on the type of shoot there may be additional flexibility due to feedings, makeup retouching, outfit and location changes, etc. Ultimately, your comfort during the shoot and satisfaction with the final product is our priority.

Need to keep it short and sweet? Not to worry! We can do that. Often for men’s headshots, shoots can be wrapped up within thirty minutes or less, depending on the client’s wishes.

Need to reschedule?


Life happens. Need to reschedule the shoot you already booked? Just contact us and we’ll do our best to fit you in at the soonest possible date. Your retainer may be applied to another shoot sometime within 90 days of the original shoot date.

Please keep in mind that our available shooting spots are limited and clients who are already scheduled will have to take priority.



We love capturing what makes you, your family, or your little one unique. You won't find any boring studio shots here! Have a favorite location that’s special to you? Let us know and we’ll do our best to include it in your shoot! Not sure where you want to shoot? We’ll suggest some of our favorite locations that fit your style.



Not sure what to wear? Don’t worry! It’s just as important to us that you’re happy with what you’re wearing because when you feel good about how you look, it shows!

We’ll work with you to make sure you look your very best the day of your shoot. Whether that means sending you a gallery of wardrobe ideas or arriving early to lay out outfits, we’ve got you covered!
