Your Session

Be prepared to have fun and create good memories! Before the session, we will chat about clothing and location choices, the feel or style of your session, and what you would like me to create for your family. I really want to get to know you and your family so that I can produce the perfect session for you! You will also have received the My Blue Sky Photography session guide, with suggestions and tips about what to wear and how to best prepare for the session.

When you arrive at your session location, leave the rest up to me! My goal and joy is to create images that bring out emotions in the viewer. I want your portraits to touch your heart! While I do some posing, I really love to capture the little candid moments that make a person or relationship unique: the shared giggles between sisters, the shy smile, the pensive glance, the moment of glee or sheer silliness. I plan for sessions to run 1-2 hours so that we don’t feel rushed. My hope is always that the session will be relaxed and fun for all involved.

I am primarily an on-location photographer. This means that the session can take place at a location around town of your choice, or at your home. Often the best choice is one that is meaningful to you. There are so many beautiful places in State College; if you aren’t sure where you would like your session to take place, I’m happy to make suggestions.

After your session is over, I will begin the process of downloading and hand-editing your images. About one week after your session, I will post a “sneak peek” of your images on my blog. And about two to three weeks after your session, you will receive an e-mail that your gallery of images are ready for viewing and ordering! Ordering can be done via an online gallery or in person, and I am always available to help with questions and decisions.
