Complimentary Styling for Your Session


After you book your session, I’ll send you a guide on “what to expect,” general guidelines for styling, as well as a code to access an online styling service that will assist you in choosing your outfits. Style and Select creates a stress-free process for you to choose clothing items based on your goal vibe + color scheme for your session. I also have 45 adult dresses and kid pieces for borrow in my client closet.

What happens after the session?
Around two weeks after the session you will receive 25+ edited images in an online gallery. Once you click the link, you will have 24 hours to view the gallery and make your collection selection. Once you purchase the collection, you will receive an email with the gallery credit promo code. Your gallery will be active for two weeks to spend your credit in the shop and download your images. You will get to select your favorite images from the gallery.

EXAMPLE: Client purchased collection 2. They will look through the 25+ images in the gallery to download their favorite ten images and will apply the $75 off promo code in the gallery shop. 

What is a gallery credit?
A gallery credit is an amount you have to purchase products/prints/keepsakes in the gallery shop. Once you receive your gallery, you will receive a promo code to apply the credit to the shop at checkout. 

Why gallery credit?
Having printed products, keepsakes, and prints preserves the legacy of your family. As a busy parent, I related to the never ending to do list and the list of things that just fell by the way side. Having the credit as part of your collection give that gentle nudge to choose prints and products so that images move from phones/computers to homes and hands. You can use a gallery credit on any item in the shop.

Can I buy more images if I choose Collection 1  after I receive my gallery? Can I use my gallery credit to purchase more digital downloads? 
You can purchase additional images in groups of 1,5, 10, and the entire gallery in the gallery shop after you receive your gallery. You can use your promo code. One additional image for digital download is $50.

Can I gift a mini session to a friend/family member?
Minis are perfect gifts! Prior to booking make sure that your friend/family member would enjoy my style of photography that is lifestyle, joyful, and natural. I document a few traditional portrait smile-look-at-the-camera shots, but that is not the main goal of the session. I encourage you to contact me if you are interested in gifting a session so I can assist in making it extra special.

Christina had the hardest job of taking shots of another photographer's children. She kept my kids engaged and helped create authentic photos that I will treasure forever. I was impressed with her ability to calm the chaos. – Tj
