After your session, you will be able to customize your experience with 3 portraits collections.

Limited sessions available, so book now!!!

A few important reminders

Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early to navigate parking and be ready for your session time. After don’t forget to gently wipe your child’s face before you leave the car.

If you are running late, please text me at 608-358-2871.  These sessions are stacked so if you are late you lose that amount of time.

Maximize your session

The beautiful Arboretum will provide a background with luscious spring green colors and magnolia trees in white and pink blossoms.

  • Plan your favorite comfortable and casual outfits with colors that blend well together.

  • Avoid clothing with graphics and without wording or logos.

  • Layering and accessories always photograph well and add dimension.

  • And please avoid wearing white as a main outfit color: it really does not photograph well.

Our session will be playful!  We start with a few posed photos and lead into a play session; where I encourage you to play with your kids!

The time together will go by really fast but you will be amazed at how many playful and fun portraits I can capture: family, your children, them individually, and even you as a couple.

If you want more time to play or want to bring the Grandparents along, you have the option to book extra time and have a back to back slot, that doubles your time behind my camera.

This is also suggested if you or your child is camera shy or really struggles with getting their picture taken.

When you book, make sure to add ” Extra time”, and be ready to have double the fun.

Come 15 minutes early.  When you arrive at the Arboretum Visitor Center, I will likely already be in the garden area, so my assistant will greet you and bring you to me.  Parents: if you have a child, make sure their face is clean and wipe down really well: it’s hard to remove dirt in photoshop, especially around the nose.

Be relaxed and happy.  I know it can be stressful but the best thing you can do is smile at the camera and let me focus on capturing their attention and personality.

Add more time if you don’t want to feel rushed or if you would like more variety from our session.

You will receive an online password protected gallery with your digital proofs.

You will use this gallery to select and order your favorites from the collections.
