After you’ve gone through my portfolio and decided that you like what you see, let's set up a phone, ZOOM, or in-person consultation. You can send us an email inquiry, or give us a call. This is where we will set up a time to meet in person, or ZOOM to chat more about your portrait session, your goals, and the type of session and portraits you envision.
Some of the questions we'll run through: Who do you want to be photographed with? What style of portraits would you love? Are they for branding, business, senior portraits, maternity, family, or “something special” portraits just for you? We’ll discuss all of this.
In addition, we'll chat about wardrobe styling ideas to help bring your vision to life. The information provided during our consultation will help me create the perfect session for you. We’ll get to know each other better, and how we can best serve your photography needs, answer any questions you might have about working with us, and figure out if we're the best fit for each other.
Once you’re ready to book your session, the booking process is super easy! A contract, invoice, and final details will be emailed to you. Once the session fee/retainer is paid, your contract is signed/returned -- you are officially on my schedule!
The session fee is paid before your session date. The session fee/retainer includes; Design, and styling, professional hair & makeup, a fully guided portrait session, and the final reveal.
Next, you will receive a welcome packet email that will assist you in preparing for your portrait session with plenty of additional details.
We will work together to create a highly personalized experience for your session. All portrait sessions are custom-designed for each client. Whether it’s beauty/glamour, personal branding, family, senior portraits, maternity, or couture portraits just for you we will create a portrait session to match your style and aesthetic!
Not sure what to wear? That’s okay! You can bring with you 3-5 outfit options on the day of the session so you have plenty to choose from. (I’ll even help you decide!) I also have a small studio wardrobe you’re welcome to look through prior to your session. You’ll likely wind up wearing 2 or 3 outfit choices, but it’s always good to have options!
On the day of your session, you have the option to get pampered with professional hair & makeup. You'll be the star of the day! After hair & make-up is finished, we'll transition into your portrait session.
You will be carefully guided and coached throughout your session with posing to achieve natural looks and expressions and capture authentic beautifully styled portraits of you -- that you’ll love. It’s a day of pampering and celebrating YOU, your family, and your life. I will direct and guide your poses and expressions, so you look natural, beautiful, and connected. If you’re typically a little camera-shy, don’t worry. My goal is to help you feel comfortable so your natural beauty and personality shine through during your session.
(Hair & Makeup is not included with every portrait session....but can be added)
06We offer same-day reveals and ordering appointments for your convenience. Immediately following your session, you'll have the opportunity to view your stunning, unedited portraits. You can select your favorites, and any images you decide to purchase will undergo professional retouching.
This is the moment when you get to choose which images resonate with you, and I must warn you—it can be challenging to pick just one! We strive to create an experience where you adore all your portraits.
You decide which portrait collection you would like to purchase when you see your final edited portraits during the reveal session. You have options of beautiful framed portraits for your walls, a gorgeous leather reveal box of your favorite matted portraits, or both. We have a collection for you, and you only purchase what you love!
There is no ordering minimum, most of my clients invest an average of $2,800 on their sessions - less than what it would cost to purchase a cup of coffee every day throughout the year. A la carte images are also available for purchase. All photos purchased include the high-resolution digital image.
Your prints, wall art, and albums will be ready in a matter of weeks! I will notify you once everything is ready to be picked up, and schedule a convenient time for you.

Lynette is wonderful! She stepped late notice and did all we wanted and more. She went above and beyond to make sure our experience was enjoyable. Would highly recommend her for any of your photography needs!!!
Lynette went above and beyond to make sure our experience was enjoyable
My photography style is clean, simple, and timeless, and my shooting style is fun and engaging! Please visit the gallery on my page to get a better idea of my portrait style. This will help you know what to expect from your images and if we are a good fit.
Ideally, I like to meet with my clients in person, or have a phone consultation prior to our session to get to know you better and discuss the details of your session. (Zoom is a great option for our first meeting). Once you decide that I'm your photographer of choice your session fee retainer, and signed contract will lock in your portrait session date.
We sit down, relax in my studio, (or online via ZOOM) and I’ll display your images in an elegant slideshow (or reveal wall) followed by a guided, hands-on experience through the ordering process.
I’ll show you samples, and help you choose which prints to order, what sizes will display best in your home, and help you stay within your budget to get the most out of your investment.
The deliverables such as the prints, digital images, albums, wall art, or cards. I pride myself on creating an impeccable experience and amazing legacy portraits/products that will last you a lifetime.
More importantly, I am proud to provide a truly unique and personalized experience for each of my clients from beginning to end.
The session fee is due in full at the time of booking, and this payment will hold your session time and date. This fee is a non-refundable retainer. To pay your Portrait Session Retainer you will receive an invoice via email that will allow you to pay online using your credit card. You also have the option to send a check if that’s easier.
When making purchases at the studio you can pay by cash, check, or credit card! I can also set you up on payment plans through Square if needed. Sales tax does apply to the package pricing.
Life happens, and I get that. I am happy to reschedule your session one time as long as I receive a 24-hour notice. If a second reschedule is required, you will forfeit your original session fee, and a new session fee will be paid for the new session date. *Inquire for details.
Remember, you are already fabulous! The portraits you see at your reveal session will be retouched to address harsh shadows, blemishes, wrinkles, and any concerns we discussed during our initial meeting.
My goal is a gentle retouch so in the end, you still look like your amazing self.
Digital portraits are the same price as printed images. Every image purchased comes with a digital image and print.
I love creating “Legacy Portraits” that will be cherished for many generations. I have family portraits in my home that date back to the early 1800s, and I cherish them. I feel connected to my past, my heritage, and our family’s story. Plus, to many times digital images sit on the thumb drive or CD, and never see the light of day. By providing printed portraits, you can look back and smile when you remember the moments from your portrait session.
I have a studio wardrobe on hand that you are welcome to use for your session. Given that women come in diverse shapes, sizes, and with unique style preferences, I've curated a wide array of options. It's highly recommended to explore our studio wardrobe before your session. Additionally, I can provide you with a list of recommended places to shop for items if you're seeking suggestions. I'll also encourage you to bring your own wardrobe to the session, allowing us the flexibility to mix and match items creatively. As part of our pre-session consultation, we'll have an in-depth discussion about wardrobe styling, ensuring you feel exceptionally prepared for your session.
Yes! We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. We are also setup for Klarna, Google Pay, Apple Pay, Affirm, and Afterpay too.
If you have a different card, just let us know.
Absolutely! We can arrange a monthly payment plan. Send us an email, and we can get the information your way. Session Fees must be paid prior to the session and cannot be setup with a payment plan.
