Every image is a piece of art to me!


Prepare to have fun, be silly and create magic! During my sessions I guide my clients into natural subtle poses to capture the session in a candid style. I love all things boho and incorporate the aesthetic in my work often. My goal is to create timeless images that showcase real personalities in a vibrant, bold and playful way. Whimsy & Glow family lifestyle sessions are best suited for families who adore tickle fights, hand holding, bear hugs and ultimate snuggling. If you would like to do a particular activity such as blow bubbles, collect sticks and stones or just create a cuddle puddle on a blanket while the sun is setting I am here for it! I take pride in being completely hands on in the entire process from location planning, wardrobe coordination, guided posing, editing and professional printing.


What to expect

We will spend most of our time focusing on your family connection rather than sitting still for traditional posing and shouting “cheese!” Perfect eye contact and cherubic smiles are nice to capture, but other expressions are just as precious to document!

My wish is for everyone in front of my camera to feel at ease and comfortable being themselves and most importantly show up to the session with the mindset that this is a fun outing with the family!



AFTER THE SESSION

The gallery will reflect the special time you had together as I saw the sweet little moments unfold. My hope is for you to swoon over the little details like the tiny toes, freckled noses and toothless grins I captured that you never want to forget.


I currently offer digital files in an online gallery. Clients may choose from the lightly edited images they like from a watermarked proofing gallery. After the images are favorited I will fine edit details and release purchased images in the online gallery. If the session goes very well Clients may have the option to purchase a full gallery at a flat rate.


Clients are welcome to print for personal purposes but it is highly emphasized that printing images that showcase the same quality and tones as the digital files is very important!


Together we can create truly unique and quality heirloom pieces of art for your home and heart to treasure forever.

FAQ

What is Whimsy & Glow’s editing style?

Outdoor sessions are set during golden hour so images are edited to feature warm deeper vibrant tones.

Based on location, my settings and editing style, particular wardrobe colors are recommended to help make sure the session is the best that it can be.

The editing that you see in my portfolio is consistent with my style and brand. If it speaks to you, I would love to take you on as a client!

What editing is included?

Skin spot removal, eye brightening +horizon straightening and basic skin smoothing edits along with artful color grading through hand editing are included edits for purchased images. Extensive editing such as head swaps, body manipulations, object removal and cosmetic edits are not included and may be outsourced by the client for a fee.

When do you offer appointments?

All appointments are reserved 2-6 months in advance. Outdoor sessions are weather permitting and take place 1-2 hours just before sunset in Spring, Fall & Winter. Shoot start time will vary depending on the season.

Weekend appointment times are very limited as they are reserved for my family.

Select beautiful public nature trails in Maricopa City 85138, South Phoenix and Chandler are used for portrait locations.

Superstition Mountain & Salt River locations are available for an additional travel fee. Client must also purchase a tonto pass for a small fee Travel fees start at $50 dollars for locations 30+ miles from 85138.

How long does it take to see the photos?

Clients receive a link to their first proofing gallery within 2 weeks of the session featuring the best captures from the day.

Client will have 4 days to make the photo selections from the watermarked gallery. The final image gallery will be available roughly within a week from when the selections are made.

The final downloadable gallery will have access to the print shop featuring beautiful quality products.

If the entire gallery is purchased beforehand, gallery delivery will be within 2-3 weeks.

What do I need to sign?

The portrait agreement helps in making sure that we have no misunderstandings during the process and every detail is able to be easily referred back to for a smooth process. It must be signed digitally to obtain services.

I am promising to uphold your time and date for you only, declining all other appointment requests. The client is promising to show up on time and agree to all terms and conditions specified.

All image copyrights and original image files remain with Whimsy & Glow Photography. She does not provide unedited images for any reason. Purchased files are for non-commercial use, they can not be altered or edited or submitted to publications without written permission and credit.

I may present key images on my website, blog, facebook and/or facebook unless asked directly not to by the client.

Can I print my images?

You will have personal printing permisson but I highly stress that not all print labs are the same and the results may be disappointing depending on who you choose to print with. The final outcome may not look anything like the original file and cost a lot of money in the long run to reprint.

I am happy to guide you through accessing the print shop through your gallery. There you will have access to beautiful quality products and the convenience of me completing your print order for you. Through the gallery print shop is the only way I can guarantee you will love your final prints!
