The process

1.Booking + Session Fee

Let’s make sure I am someone you feel comfortable with & I can offer what you are looking for in a photographer. This is the perfect time to also compare calendars. The quickest way to do this is a quick phone call. To book you’ll sign a contract & pay your session fee {reserves your session on my calendar, all prints are products are purchased separately}.

*session fees vary for session type and location

2.Preparing

What to wear? Where to shoot? Once you are booked I will send a welcome guide & a style questionnaire to you that will help us shop for the perfect outfits and give you some tips on how to prepare for your session. I will also expertly guide you in selecting the perfect location for your session.

3.On The Day

Authentic feels! Whether it is quiet cuddles or running and playing, I will capture your family in a natural and authentic way. All real moments and connections welcome! 

4.The Fun Part!

Within 2 weeks {up to 3 in the Fall} you’ll receive a slideshow of your images and choose which collection you want to purchase and what unique custom products you’d like to display your gorgeous photos!

5. Join the Club

Babies and children change and grow daily.  Most of my clients love documenting all the milestones and memories.  Once we’ve worked together,  you will be invited to join the EJP Membership Club and take managing family photos off your to-do list forever.  Members enjoy special benefits, discounted pricing, priority scheduling, and a monthly payment plan.  Contact me for more information on the club!

“You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow they will be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift. Just breathe, notice, study their faces and little feet. Pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today. It will be over before you know it.”

– Jen Hatmaker

Imagine giving the gift of a memory for generations to come?

No matter your budget, there is something for everyone.
