Having family photos taken doesn't have to be that hard!

Step 1 - Schedule your session

The first thing we'll do is secure a date in my calendar, then you'll sign a contract online and pay a session fee of $250. Your session fee covers all the pre session planning, photographing your session and culling and editing your images. The session fee does NOT include any prints, products or digital files, those are chosen after your session.

Weekend dates are limited and generally reserved for family time, which is why they incur a $50 surcharge. Because my sessions take place in the late afternoon/evening, most families find they're able to work a session in with little or no time lost at the office.

 

Once you're all booked in I'll send you my session prep guide. You'll find the answers to 90% of the questions I get asked, but if there's something that's not covered you know I'm just a phone call/email away!​​

Step 2 - Your photography session

The day is finally here, take a breath and relax... I promise to make the process as painless as possible for everyone. I'll guide you through the session with some fun games and prompts, and there'll be time to give the kids (and grown-ups) a little break during the session if they need it.

Usually we're done within 40 minutes or so, but if there's some kind of wardrobe malfunction or one of the kids has a meltdown, I like to stay flexible, that's why I recommend you block off around 1-1.5 hours (2-3 hours for newborns).

Step 3 - Viewing your images

Approximately 2-3 weeks after your session you'll receive an email from me with a link to your slideshow. The slideshow includes all of your fully edited images from your session, around 40+. Once you've had a chance to see them and marvel for a bit, you'll get to choose which collection best suits you and your family. After you purchase your collection you'll have a full month to choose which images to download and how to spend your included credit...zero pressure!

Step 4 - The fun part!

What you're going to do with your images is perhaps the most important thing to consider when you're planning for a photo session, but it's all too often the part that's overlooked... all that time and money invested deserves a better return than photos gathering dust on a hard drive somewhere. You'll never get the same feeling looking at your photos on a screen as you will seeing them on your wall or flipping through the pages of an album, that's why I include a substantial credit towards your beautiful products with every collection.

 

Below is a sample of some of the most loved items you can choose from...

"Stacey photographed our 2 week old son for a newborn shoot and was absolutely amazing. Our boy was unsettled and Stacey cradled him to sleep with cuddles and is seriously a baby whisperer! Stacey was so professional and kind helping to coax our reluctant toddler into some sibling and family shots. The images took my breath away and we will treasure them forever"
