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 of small children who adore tickle fights, hand holding, bear hugs and ultimate snuggling. I take pride in being completely hands on in the entire process from location planning, wardrobe coordination, guided posing, editing and quality printing. All of these components play a very important role in the final images.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Prepare to have fun, be yourself, be silly and create magic! We will spend our time focusing on your family connection rather than sitting still for traditional posing and shouting “cheese!” I guide my clients into natural subtle poses to capture the session in a candid style. Perfect eye contact and cherubic smiles are nice to capture, but other authentic expressions are just as precious to document!
AFTER THE SESSION
I currently offer hand edited digital files in a watermarked online. The gallery will reflect highlights from the special time you had together as I saw the sweet little moments unfold. My hope is for you to swoon over the candid little details like the tiny toes, freckled noses and toothless grins I captured that you never want to forget.
My wish is for you to want to cover your walls in the images we made, ultimately feeling those moments over and over!

What is Whimsy & Glow’s editing style?
Outdoor sessions are set during golden hour so images embrace and 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?
I primarily edit for color, contrast and light, Minor edits include skin spot removal, eye brightening, +horizon straightening and 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.
Whimsy & Glow never releases unedited files.

Can I print my images?
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!
