*I think it goes without saying, but just to cover my butt, please remember that I have absolutely no control over the scenery. I can't guarantee blossoms or a sunset sky any more than I can sun vs clouds (although some past stormy dramatic sessions have been AWESOME). I will use my best judgement to request a location within the orchard that will give us the best light for your photos. Most of the spring and summer is just plain beautiful grass and trees and fall foliage comes and goes quickly.

Scheduling: Our sessions are short and sweet at just 30 minutes long and are always done at sunset for that beautiful soft flattering light. We mainly work with babies, toddlers and young ages in general who may only have an attention span of 15 minutes for photos so I work fast! Our sessions take place Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Fridays. Our exact start time will depend on the sunset time that week as well as the weather forecast.

Rain dates: Sessions are only rescheduled if it is actively raining or inevitable in the forecast. Thursdays and some Tuesdays are our rain reschedule days. Since we are very limited to time of year, time of day, and good weather seasons, if a session is rained out twice, we will issue a refund so that it does not create a backlog in our schedule. I know that totally stinks! I wish I could create more time in the day!

Shooting Style: I love to shoot just the yummy candid stuff. I'll give a little bit of direction but otherwise I want to be invisible to capture you guys, being a family, interacting, having real fun, showcasing real toddler tantrums. In other words, I'm not trying to create the perfect family portrait for you to show off on Facebook; I'm trying to capture your real, silly, crazy, perfectly imperfect family. We don't want you to rehearse smiles with your kids or review the consequences of their behavior. Your kids should see this as mommy and daddy put away their phones, forget about housework, and just genuinely play and cuddle for 30 uninterrupted minutes. Sessions are for immediate family only. No children only sessions; it's all about the family interaction.

Clothing Style: Our family sessions definitely have a certain look. Muted, pastel, or neutral colors. I ask clients to dress in pieces that reflect this so I can keep a cohesive look to my photos. In other words, avoid the bright colors and patterns and just go simple and subtle. My style isn't for everyone so that's why we want to make sure this is a perfect for you for before we book.

Location: I have the awesome opportunity to shoot exclusively at Linvilla Orchards of Media, PA. The landscape is ever changing and we'll show up to anything from a beautiful flower field to dirt roads the kids will love dance and kick up dirt on, and of course my favorite apple and peach trees. The only drawback is that a working orchard with crop spraying and maintenance does mean I don't know my scenery until I arrive that day with you guys but I must say after being there 5 years I've never been dealt an area I didn't find to be picture perfect.

Social media use: My pricing reflects the ability to show off these beautiful sessions on our social media and share them with Linvilla Orchard's marketing team. Plus, it's a fun way for me to post sneak peeks for you while I edit. I don't use full names or tag clients without their permission, but if you'd prefer total privacy for your photos just let me know before booking. We have a small $25 privacy fee which will keep all images completely private to you.
