With most of my sessions I offer an in-person pre-consultation and in-person order consultation. There are many benefits to doing both of these in-person, especially if it is the first time we are meeting each other. Not only am I there to guide you through every part of the process, it helps set expectations so that you know what it is like working with me. Also, I feel in order to get those images with genuine emotion and connection, I first need to meet and get to know you and your family. I encourage parents to have their children present for the pre-consultation so that we can get to know each other, and it eliminates the idea of a total stranger with a camera. Children are also welcome for the order consultation, but I like to remind parents that you need to be able to focus and make decisions. I like doing the ordering in-person as well because I like to help guide you with choosing your art work. Also I find that it is just easier and more efficient to do it in-person. To wrap things up I am here to put you at ease and guide you every step of the way.
