Ready to Make Some Memories?

Lauren and Matt will work with you to design a session as unique as you are. From location to wardrobe choices to props, we want to capture your memories perfectly.  Every session includes a pre-shoot consultation (usually done by phone or e-mail) to help us get to know you, answer any questions you may have, and make decisions on the perfect location and props for your session. 

Our sessions are friendly and casual. We reserve two hours for a typical session (more for newborns and other special circumstances) so that there is plenty of time to try different poses, wander around your chosen location to find the perfect "spots," and generally relax and enjoy the experience. If there are children involved, we welcome their feedback and honor their need to run and play. Some of our favorite photos are candid moments of our clients just being themselves and interacting with their loved ones. You are also welcome to plan outfit changes and/or include different groupings of people within your session. Our goal is to create a completely individualized experience to capture your unique memories. 

After your session, your photographer will hand-pick and edit the very best of your images (at least 30 from a typical session) and upload them to a password protected online gallery. This process can take up to a week as generally more than twice the time goes into editing as was spent in the original session. You will receive a link when your personal gallery has been completed. All of our packages include download privileges. Flash drives and a variety of prints and framing options (including gallery quality wrapped canvas) are also available to order
