Family First Folio Session
I know what beautiful looks like. I can see yours. I know how to bring it forward, and how to capture it with my camera. I also know what it's like to be a woman who struggles to see her own beauty. That's why I've made it my mission to create the most beautiful portraits you have ever Seen of yourself. I want to show you how beautiful you are; to help you reconnect with the woman you see in your portraits, and be awed by her again.

If you are considering making any changes to your hair, it's best to email us and make sure that whatever changes you are making will still match how your session is designed.
Please make sure that your roots have been touched up prior to your shoot.
Hands play a very important role in your portraits. Nails should be neatly trimmed with no polish or a nude/blush tone.
A simple manicure and pedicure will be perfect. Make sure that your fingers and toes match.
No acrylic tips and/pr designs on your nails including french tips. Don't paint them a bright or bold color as normally these bold colors are very distracting in photographs. We want the viewer to focus on you and not your nail color.
Studio Session Preparation
- The Consultation
- During your pre-session meet & greet you will have the opportunity to tour the studio and get a better understanding of what your session will be like. In the event you can't come to the studio we will have an phone consultation where we will go through a number of images to gather ideas on how you envision yourself being photographed. Digging deeper, we will discover what resonates with you-soft and ethereal, bold and confident, or something sexy! Pre-session consultations are required to book any session in our studio. We ask that you do not bring guests or children to your consultation so that we can stay focused on YOU. Consultations last about 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how chatty we get, and are scheduled Tuesday and Thursdays in our studio.
- Post Consultation: gathering necessities
- After we have gathered initial ideas for your shoot, it's now time to begin mapping and designing the perfect poses and character of your session. We will send you a beauty guide and style guide to help you begin looking for your favorite outfits. Now is the time to consider purchasing your own garments to make your photographs extra special. Consider borrowing gowns from family and friends, shopping in vintage boutiques, or using renttherunway.com to add a personalized touch to your portrait session. To help us design your session, you can fill out our pre-session style questionaire! This will give us an even better idea of how you want to see yourself!
