For most portrait sessions, we recommend calling us 1-2 months in advance of your desired session date, however we are happy to take last-minute sessions as our schedule allows.
Shoots themselves vary in length, and can be anywhere from 40 minutes to 2 hours. After we CAPTURE your beautiful images, we will schedule your Viewing and Ordering Appointment, where you will view & order your ART, HEIRLOOMS OR DIGITAL products. We schedule this about 1-2 weeks after your session. After you order, product fulfillment time depends on the type of product ordered, however most produCts will be deliveREd to you within 2-4 weeks. If you are needing a rush order, we are more then happy to talk with you about your specific needs.

What about posing? I have zero idea what to do!
Don’t worry about posing, that’s what we are here for! we will tell you exactly what to do, from where to put your hands, where to put your feet, where to stand etc. After the first few poses, it will become almost NATURAL, even the most nervous person will automatically fall into a natural pose after spending a few moments in front of the camera with kimberly and realize it wasn’t as bad as they thought it would be!

My kids are so busy! What if they are (Gasp!) naughty?
No worries there! we have 4 kids of our own, and we understand kids are not always on top of their game. that's ok. Don't stress, bring a positive attitude and a snack if they get hungry and we will do the rest.
how much should i plan to invest in custom art or treasured heirlooms?

piece of furniture.
