Fall Photo Sessions

easy, candid, joyful fall photos with your loves

Cue the cozy sweaters and apple cider, it's fall again!

Usually, this means those super speedy mini sessions, right? This year is definitely a little different than most. In an effort to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, I've committed to photographing just one client/family per day, which means no back-to-back mini sessions. But I've got an even better idea...

Introducing the Half Session!

These 30-minute sessions are just the right amount of time to get those gorgeous fall photos we all love at your favorite location while ensuring your family's health and safety (and mine too!) This ensures time to disinfect my equipment between sessions, in addition to other new protocols.
I'm so excited to get out in the great outdoors and capture you and your loves this fall. I've got a completely contactless experience at the ready for you, from booking and shooting your session, selecting your images for download, through to ordering and receiving print products.

These special sessions are available weekdays (and select weekends) until October 30th within 10 miles of Fairfield, CT. If fall foliage and temperatures allow, I may extend that date. Ready to learn more?

How It Works

  • 01.

    Select and book your date with a $200 session fee. You can choose a location from my recommended list during the booking process, or let me know where in the nearby great outdoors you’d like to meet! Booking times are planned for the best pre-sunset light, but if you and your family need a different time window for everyone’s comfort, just let me know.

  • 02.

    Once you’re booked, you’ll receive a session prep guide with tips, advice, and best practices to help make it a fun and easy experience for you and your family. We’ll hop on the phone to talk through any questions or concerns you might have.

  • 03.

    Session day! We’ll meet at our planned location a bit before our start time and shoot for about 30 minutes. Sessions are fun and easy breezy – you get to just be yourselves, and leave the rest up to me!

  • 04.

    2-3 weeks after your session, you’ll receive a slideshow of all your images (40+) to watch and rewatch for 24 hours!

  • 05.

    Choose your Post-Session Collection 24 hours after you’ve viewed all your photos via your slideshow (check out the Collection options below!) After purchasing your Collection, your full session gallery will be available online for glee filled sharing with family and friends!

  • 06.

    You’ll have a whole month (that’s right, 30 days!) to choose how to spend your gallery print credit and to select your digital downloads. With my beautiful automated galleries, you can do it on your time, whenever it’s most convenient for you. Choose from prints, framed prints, canvases, holiday cards, custom-designed albums and more.

What are your photo sessions like?

So easy. Photos with me aren't about poses or perfection. Before we get started, we'll take a few moments to make sure everyone (not just the kiddos!) is comfortable, and then we'll play! Some families dive right into being together in their own lovely way, and while some families benefit from letting the kids settle in with easy games or a little space. Either way, I'm here to make it a really fun time of togetherness – the photos are just the evidence that you had a great time!

How many people can attend a session?

Families/groups should be no more than 5 people (6 is ok if it's another kiddo of yours). Additional people are $25/per, due as part of your session fee. Pets are welcome if the location allows!

What are your COVID safety protocols?

It's so important to me that you and your family feel safe while we're documenting all your love! I will be practicing appropriate social distancing (yep, this means masks and no hugs for now!) as well as ensuring just one booking a day per location and disinfecting my equipment after every session. If you have questions or concerns about how I can tailor your session's safety to your needs, please let me know.

Can we have our session in our backyard?

As long as it's accessible without entering your home, let's do it! Otherwise, we can make total magic in a front yard, a walk around the block, or your neighborhood public space (once they are officially open.)

What if my kids act like... kids?

Repeat after me: it's all good. I'm a momma, and I've seen it all. My goal is to make a space for you to celebrate the real-life that happens - whatever that is. Don't stress about perfect kids or clean clothes, because real life is so much lovelier. Love on your people and I'll take care of the rest!

I still have questions!

No problem at all! Let's hop on the phone (or the Zooms) for a quick chat and I'm happy to answer any questions you have.
