After you schedule your session, you will receive a contract and invoice for your session deposit. You will also receive a SESSION PREP GUIDE that will go over everything you need to know for the upcoming session.
For out members, this is when you will receive your styling code as well.
Then, the week of your session I will reach out to you to confirm your date and time. We will pick a location, if not previously done, and get any last minute information.
For a birth-story, communication will be much more frequent. We will basically talk all the time as the dates comes nearer.
I usually arrive 10 minutes early to get my equipment set up and pick our spots for shooting. Depending on the type of session, we will spend 45-120 minutes taking great pictures. I will capture you and/or your kidlets smiling, laughing and just living. We will do some traditional as well as some more candid and emotional images. This part is my specialty, so, mom and dad, no stressing out during the shoot. When you arrive, you get to hand the reigns to me. You have done your part and now it is my turn. I can not stress this enough. PICTURES SHOULD BE FUN!!
At the end of the session, when you feel amazing about the shots we have gotten, you simply pay the remainder of your invoice within 24 hours. I accept cash and all major credit cards. Please note, I do not take checks.
It takes me up to 7 business days to edit a regular session(birth-stories take up to 4 weeks) Once I am done editing your session I will upload your images to your online gallery. You will receive an email that takes you to your images and gives you all the informations you need to access, download, and ORDER PRINTS. You can download your images as many times as you want and your gallery will be available for 6 months.
I think it is incredibly important to print your images. I would love to help select which photos to print, design a photo wall, put together an album for you, or help you select gifts and cards for Christmas. All sessions include a PRINT ORDERING SESSION in your own home within 2 weeks of receiving your edited photos. I will reach out to you to get this appointment set up.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me! I can't wait to capture your family!

"Michelle is so professional but yet so caring every time. It doesn't get better then her. Michelle is amazing and her pictures are everything you ever wished for to capture your memories."
"We first used Michelle for our Newborns, which are super tough to do, and she was absolutely amazing. My girls were everywhere all over the place, and Michelle was calm, super sweet, and SO understanding. The pictures turned out incredible and I am so glad we went with her. We loved her so much she did our family pictures a few months later, and I can't express how much we love them. She is so professional and so so great with our kids. Her style is amazing, clean cut, just how I love it!! I would recommend her to everyone. You will love her!!!"
"Michelle is amazing! She has done my daughters birth story, her newborns and our family pictures. With all 3 sessions she did an incredible job and we will forever cherish the memories she captured. I also loved how fast she got the pictures back to us!"
