If it seems like it may be too hot, cold, windy or rainy for your session we will get in touch with you! You will be contacted the day before your session regarding weather. If we need to reschedule, we leave time blocks open for just that purpose.
We completely get this fear! After years of working with 100's of families we are pro's at using many strategies to guide you into a low-stress session. We stand by our work. If you don't love your images, we reshoot for free.
Please let us know as soon as possible if you have illness or injury. If you have a large visible cut, bruise, or rash, please reschedule. Any issue that is small we can address in post processing. If you are unsure, please text us a photo! There is no charge for rescheduling!
COVID-19: Here at the farm we have both elderly and immunocompromised people living with us. If any member of your group has had any symptoms of illness in the 2 weeks prior to your session, we ask that you please reschedule. To protect you, your photographer is following the same guidelines. If rescheduling is needed, we will work hard to get you a new time asap!
We love pets! They are always welcome. Please do remember that we have free-range chickens, so if your dog is likely to chase them, please keep them on a leash.

We are all about authenticity, so our farm is our backdrop and nature supplies many beautiful objects to interact with. We welcome you to bring favorite things to make your session personal! A few objects that hold a particular sentimental value are always welcome. (Favorite books, toy, etc.) Most items that we have are muted-tone, natural items.
See gallery below for inspiration.

In Case of Illness
Please let us know as soon as possible if you have illness or injury. We are happy to reschedule you at no charge, but really appreciate the notice! If anyone has a large visible cut, bruise, or rash, please reschedule. Anything issue that is small (such as a pimple, etc) we can remove in post processing. If you are unsure, please text us a photo.
You are welcome to as many clothing changes as reasonably fit into your scheduled time. We do have a private changing area.
If you are looking for something new for your shoot, get inspired by our favorite makers.
The most important thing is to dress in favorite items that make you feel great, and feel like yourself. Clothing does not need to be the same color, but keeping things on same same palette does help. For palette ideas and inspiration for every season, please see our board on Pinterest.
If you are not planning a change of clothing, please bring a spare outfit for the kids. It's a farm—and mud, chickens, puddles, and the unexpected happen!
We love pets! They are always welcome. Please do remember that we have free-range chickens, so if your dog is likely to chase them, please keep him on a leash.
