Story Book Session

This is my favorite! We photograph and write a twenty page book about your child or children. Before the shoot, we discuss all your children's favorites. What do they like best in school? What do they want to be when they grow up? What is thier favorite hobby or activity? Do they play a sport? Do they have a pet? Who is their best friend? What is thier favorite toy? What do they like best about mommy and daddy? What is thier favorite thing to do with grandparents? All of these questions help us create a "moment in time" story book.

This book will be treasured forever. It makes a wonderful milestone to record your children's growth and development. They will love reading this book as they grow and be able to remember thier childhood.

The Planning Meeting

 
 

At our first meeting we discuss the storyline of your child's book and how many different images we need and how many locations we need to create those images. Bring your child to this meeting and we can include them in most of the decisions. I like to meet them prior to the shoot date so they will be more comfortable with me and we can try to get them excited about thier book.

After we determine the layout, I collect the session fee for your shoot and we select the shoot date and time.

The Day of our Shoot

 
 

Bring all your props and clothing changes and be prepared for a fun day. Don't pressure your child by telling them how important this is. Instead, remind them how much fun this will be and soon they will have a story book about them that mommy and grandparents can read to them. Expect this session to take 3 to 6 hours depending on your location selections.

At this session I collect a down payment on your Story Book.

 

     

The Creation Meeting

 
 

Now we select the images for your book and complete the story! This may take a while. When we have the story completed and the images selected, I will create the layout over the next 2 days and put it online for you to preview.

At this session you place your entire order. You can order extra books or individual prints. I collect half down on any extras you order.

 
     

The Final Meeting

 
  Your books and prints are ready! Everything will be ready 2 weeks after our Creation Meeting. You receive your order and pay the balance due.
