You fall in love with my work, message me, and we get you on my calendar. Now what?
I'll send you a contract and invoice to sign, as well as expert suggestions and guidelines for wardrobes and locations. Once you've picked your location, signed the contract, and paid your deposit, (I ask for 50% of the session price) then we'll both anxiously wait for your session to arrive...
On the day of your session, I want things to be as smooth as possible for you.
We'll meet at an agreed upon location: your home, the nearby park, a favorite hiking spot, a local u-pick berry farm, etc. Once we arrive, your job is to relax and have fun. I'll create a fun, engaging environment and direct your family with little games or
challenges that are engaging for everyone.
If during the session you feel like the bribe you gave your family isn't sinking in the way you wanted it to and you begin to feel embarrassed that your kids are acting like their evil twins, I promise I've seen it all; there really are no new or challenging behaviors for me. Just close your eyes, take a breath, and continue to follow my lead.
A day or two after your session, you'll receive a few previews to share with grandparents, aunts & uncles, and faraway friends. Within 2 weeks you'll get an email from me with a link to your gallery. HOORAY! You can expect around 40+ images in your gallery from a full hour session.
When you follow the gallery link in your email, you'll be able to view, download, and share your images. You'll also be able to order prints, albums, cards, calendars, canvases, etc. of the images you love directly from your gallery. (And you'll have a fancy little discount to use on prints as a thank you from me!)
"I cannot say enough good things about Sarah. She was super professional and made the whole process easy from start to finish. I could not be happier with the memories she captured of my wedding day. She was patient with a chaotic wedding party and a husband who is not a fan of having his picture taken- and the end result was more than I could hope for. If you have the chance to work with her, absolutely do it!"
"I can't praise Sarah enough!! She has photographed our family twice now. She is very patient and very personable. I'm grateful that she's been willing to work so well with my sons who don't like getting their pictures taken. She works well with lighting and recommends great locations. She's professional and fun to work with!"

"Sarah is fantastic! She has a great eye for photography, and I am so pleased with the pictures she has taken of my family. We have come back several times and she has always made the experience easy and fun.
I would recommend her to absolutely anyone!"

I'm located in Dahlonega, GA, but I travel and serve the whole North Georgia/Atlanta area. On occasion, I'll travel to Utah and Oregon to visit family, and I love opening up session dates for clients I have in both states. Message me if you'd like to discuss other location options!
SO much! You'll get at least one awesome smiling shot to send to grandma, but you'll get so much more than that: individual head shots of you and the kids, all the various groupings you could imagine, and little details you've noticed yourself in quiet hours but never captured.

If you schedule the standard 1 hour session, you can expect 40+ images, but my typical average is around 60 images.
I do not have a studio. Portraits are done either in the comfort of your own home, or at a location decided on by the two of us. I recommend different locations based on your preferences, or you can decide where we meet. I especially love when clients have a meaningful activity or location for their portraits.
