booked. Now what?

Here are some of the most important resources and readings you can do to prepare for your family & newborn sessions. The most important thing to take care of is the contracts. Once those are done (and remind your partner please!) we are set and ready to start planning.  

Let's get to it...

You've got your contracts

Make sure you read it over and talk to your partner about the contracts. Ask any questions you might have. Don't miss out on the complimentary 10 4x6" heirloom prints (worth $60) that you will get if your contracts are signed within 4 business days of receipt. I need all contracts including partner's contracts signed, so make sure you follow up with them to qualify for the gifted prints.

Get in the right mindset

After the session

- Your teasers will be posted on IG stories within 4 days of your shoot (often within 24 hours!!). 
Your images will be ready in about 3 weeks (sometimes sooner!). Contractually it'll be done in 4 weeks.

- Family film will take longer as editing that is a monster.

- You'll get an online gallery that's password protected via a program called Pic-Time. If you already have a Pic-Time account, then you already have a password (use that). 

- Please watch the slideshow for the reveal. Sit down with your family. Have it widescreen on the TV. 

- Then once your prints arrive (if you and your partner have signed all contracts within 4 business days) you'll get tracking for your USB + Prints via USPS.
