The Experience

Does the thought of having a photo session stress you out?  You're stressed about what to wear, whether your kids will behave, & what location to use.  You're nervous that you'll feel awkward, that you won't know what to do or where to put your hands.  The whole thing makes you want to say, "Forget it!"  

 I understand!  Planning a photo session CAN be stressful, but it doesn't have to be!  Would you believe me if I told you that a photo session with me is fun and stress-free?  Hard to believe?  Let me calm your fears...  I have photographed hundreds of families & children in the Elizabethtown, KY area for the last 10 years!  Not only have I learned what works and what doesn't work through years of experience, but I am continuously refining my craft through workshops & education.  I am always learning & growing, striving to be the best!   I am currently in my 20th year as an elementary special education teacher.  I am an expert in connecting with kids, going with the flow, being patient, and recognizing when something isn't working!  I am the first to be a complete goofball if it means winning them over or getting a belly laugh! I have a ton of strategies and tricks up my sleeve to ensure that your child is engaged and having fun!  On the other hand, I am a mom of two boys!  I totally get that they may be grumpy, tired, not in the mood for pictures, hating the outfit you picked for them, etc.  Haha!  Let's be honest, though...sometimes their grumpy faces are even adorable!  I love to capture those, too! :)  After all, true life isn't always sunshine & rainbows!  I'm okay with that!    I also understand that nobody wants to stand still, look "perfect" and say "Cheese"!  That is why my approach is natural & interactive!  We stay busy, we explore, we play games, we laugh and have fun!!  I will be the "artistic director" and will guide you the whole time, but I will also let the moments lead the way.  I let real life happen, and I'm there to capture it!  Trust me, it works! :) We will plan your session together.  I will get to know your family, including what you enjoy.  I will help you with planning your outfits to ensure that you look & feel your best for your session!  We will decide on a location that is beautiful, unique and fits the look and feel of your session.   Most importantly, we will have fun and capture beautiful memories to cherish for a lifetime!  I promise!   After your session, I will go through the hundreds of images that I took and edit the very best ones that tell your family's story & that speak to me as an artist.  Each selected image will be edited to my highest creative standards and will be consistent with my style that you know & love.  Within 3 weeks of your session, your final image gallery will be ready for viewing!  I will email your gallery to you, and you can download your images straight from your gallery to your computer.  Once your images are downloaded, you can print them wherever & whenever you choose.          My wish for all of my clients is that you will print your pictures!  Your memories deserve to be on your walls and in your hands!  If choosing favorites and deciding what to print and how to print it overwhelms you, just ask me!  I'll be glad to help you decide on how to display your images in your home!
