Families | Maternity | Newborn | boudoir 

The blonde behind the lense... and Here's the deal!

I love LOVE... and I love PEOPLE... and when you book me you're NOT just getting a photographer, you're getting a friend! I know.. I know.. cheesy, right?! But seriously... I am 100% serious AND dedicated to do everything in my power to make sure that your photo session is FAB and that you are one happy little camper! My families  are NOT clients... they are friends! Always...

And let me just tell you...I get it!
Just the idea of portrait sessions can bring on that dreaded feeling of... "Will they turn out good? Will my kids cooperate? What will we wear? etc.... etc..." But here is the reality: These moments are fleeting... and before you know it they will be gone! Like POOF... never to be seen again! And the last thing you want to do is put it off any longer due to the "fear" of "what if's!!" What if I just wait to lose that last 10 lbs? What if it's better to wait until the kids are bit older and will behave better? What if I wait until next year when we can afford it? 

How about NO MORE WHAT IFS! 
The truth is, the time is now!The truth is that you DESERVE to document this amazing time in your family's journey! The truth is that it doesn't have to be perfect and that life's most precious moments are NOT perfect... They are raw, they are real, and they are now... Right now in this very moment! 


I'm Chrissy!

hey there

FAMILIES | MATERNITY | NEWBORN

It's ALL about the experience... Yes, beautiful images are KEY and a definite must when you're making that all important decision on who to hire to document your family milestones,  however equally important is the way you FEEL during your session! This is where I come in! 

My job is simple... to make you HAPPY!! I want you and your family to be laughing, smiling, and so comfortable with me that you literally forget the fact that I am there as your photographer! At the end of the day, my families are my FRIENDS... not my clients, and there is nothing better than knowing your friend has your back and is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure your session is magic! 

Your images AND your memories are completely dependent on how comfortable you are with your photographer! So, hiring a photographer who not only has the style of photography you adore,  but also a fun, outgoing attitude is so important ... and that's exactly what you get with me. I am there to put your minds at ease and allow ME to make sure to get those real, open mouth, genuine smiles and giggles... Ultimately, I want you to see your family the way I do... through my lense. The RAD, fun, perfectly "imperfect' family that you are!

Afterall, that is real life... That is what you WANT to remember! These are the images you will cherish 50 years from now! I promise...!


Let's have Some fun!

Questions & Answers

Frequently Asked

Q: What happens if something comes up and we need to Re-Schedule?

A:   Emergencies happen... so I fully understand. I have a husband and family myself, so I get it! If you need to re-schedule, you are allotted one re-schedule at no charge. If a second re-schedule is necessary a $75.00 fee will be charged, as I have blocked off my schedule for your appointment, and potentially turned away another client for your time slot. 

Q: Can you help me with outfit selections? 

A:  ABSOLUTELY! I am completely dedicated to making sure you feel fabulous for your session, so I am definitely open to helping you decide on outfits once we have spoken about "vibe" of your session and the location. Once we chat I will have a much better idea of what to suggest for you and/or your family to wear to your session! Well coordinated and properly chosen outfits can make all the difference in your images!

Q: How will I receive my final gallery of images?

A:  Within 3 weeks you  will receive an email letting you know they are ready that will include a link to your personal, password protected, online gallery – where you can download single images one at a time, or the entire gallery to your laptop/desktop.

Q: How many images will I receive?

A: Your final gallery will have roughly 75-100 Fully Edited High Resolution Images , of which you will choose the number of images associated with your package. 

Q: Do I have to purchase prints and/or products through you?

A:  No..no.. no.. – You will have a Full Print Release that allows you to print all of your images wherever you choose! Now… I will ask you to PLEASE not print your huge megabyte, high resolution images at a low grade lab, such as CVS, Target, etc… You paid good money to capture these images and the worst thing you can do is to have them printed at a lab that does not utilize the newest and greatest technology available! A professional lab should always be your first choice for printing your images. Now because I want to make sure my lovely work of you looks its very best when you print it, I have given you access to my own profession lab – through the online gallery of images that is emailed out to you. This lab is best for ordering prints, etc... If you are looking to order an album or wall art, let me know, as I use a separate lab to fulfill these orders! 

Q: Do you offer any albums, prints, wall art, etc?

A: Absolutely! I work with two different Professional Labs. One you will find in your online gallery - which I recommend using for prints, gift items, cards, etc... The other Lab I use is more focused on Albums and Wall Art.  Samples can be viewed upon request!

Q: Do you offer payment plans?

A: Yes, I do! I understand that you are making an investment in beautiful memories, so I want to make it flexible as possible. Any purchase above $750.00 can be broken up into either 2 or 3 payments. Your final Gallery and any physical products will be delivered to you once your final payment is made. 

Q: Why don't you just sell ALL digital images, like many other photographers do? 

A: Ok, so here's the deal... the reality is that we have become a DIGITAL world... and the art of preserving our memories is sadly one of the past. It has been shown that well over 90% of clients will NEVER actually print and/or display one single image from their session. This is simply sad. I don't know about you, but one of my all time favorite things to do is to go through my mom's old family albums and remind myself of the past... To see myself and my loved ones from years ago. There is just something about seeing those images in person, and not on a computer screen, that brings me a sense of joy. I understand... we are a modern society, and posting our images on Facebook and Instagram are the way of the future... but trust me when I tell you it's not the same as when you walk into your home, and see your beautiful images on your wall... It's not the same as watching your children snuggled on the couch, flipping through the pages of years past. It is simply different. And I also know that we all have the BEST intentions of printing them. Of proudly displaying them for everyone to see. For us to see. But again, the chances of this happening are far less than 10%. So, I have decided that I will insure that your hard earned money for this session receives the joy and happiness it deserves... and I have decided that every package, will at the very least, receive one or more printed, physical products. 

Q: How do I book a session with you?

A: I Love that question the most! To book me for your session simply let me know: 1)  Your preferred date and location if you know it , 2) Your Full Legal Name for the contract, 3) What package you are interested in and if you are looking to do a payment plan.  Once I have this info I can send you an online contract to digitally sign and then once you have paid your $250 retainer through Venmo or Paypal you will officially be on my calendar!!
