information packet

1/33
hi, thanks for stopping by :)

I appreciate your interest in working with me, and am super excited to create beautiful art of your family.

I've created this information packet for you because the way I work is very different than most other photographers, and I want to tell you all about it.

the peppermint experience

As an artist, I want to create something that is as beautiful and as unique as your family. I want it to be meaningful to you. I want to capture real expressions, emotions, and connections; the personalities that make you who you are. I want to create something that is exquisite enough, emotional enough, and timeless enough to become a family heirloom, handed down for generations. I want this piece to be something you'll treasure, that makes you happy when you look at it; something you might have hung on your wall as art even if it weren't your kids.

Because of that, the entire process is very intentional.

 

I'll take the time to get to know you and your family, and learn what makes you tick. We'll discuss what tone and mood you want for these images, what you want to feel when you look at them, which colors you want to incorporate... We'll plan together, and I'll help you out with everything from wardrobe design and location choices to choosing which products to print on, to installing the final artwork on your wall.

This is not a studio where we'll meet at your session for the first time, shoot some photos, and hope you can do something with them. Rather, I will hold your hand from start to finish to ensure that we create something truly exquisite that brings your vision to life.

 

Think of it as a custom commissioned piece of artwork :) 

 

The final result will make your heart sing.

how it works

CONSULTATION: Let's plan it all!

Your photography session should be as unique as you, and the final artwork should reflect the beauty and personality of your family. A quick visit to my home studio will make planning your dream shoot so much more fun! You'll get to see wall galleries, touch and feel each product to see what suits you best, and plan wardrobe + location so we're all set for the big day.

THE SESSION: Trust me, it's fun!

You just show up and trust me to do the rest! I want this session to be a fun time for your family, and the way we do it, even dad won't mind! I'll bring everything you need for your session - from tissues to wet-wipes to emergency sewing kits to bribes - everything I've ever needed on a shoot is in my bag! I've got years of experience photographing families and children, and with unlimited patience and no time limit on the session, there's no reason for you to stress. You will love our time together!

VIEW & ORDER: It's showtime!

Sit back, relax, grab a tissue. Moms need it! This is where everything comes together. In my awesome software, you'll get to see all your images in a beautiful slideshow. I'll help you narrow down, choose images, and show you how different sizes will look on your own wall. Being in my studio makes ordering a breeze - and the best part is that everything is customized to your liking.

Ordering artwork has never been more fun!

DELIVERY & INSTALLATION: Woohoo!

When I was a kid, my mom had a full closet of framed photographs we were never allowed to touch. They finally got installed on the wall when I started out in photography... I want you to enjoy your images right from the start, without having to nag your better half for weeeeks ;) All final wall art is delivered and installed by licensed professionals, so you don't have to.

art should last a lifetime

I believe in creating fine-art heirlooms that you can enjoy forever and pass down the family line for generations to come.

That is why I handpicked only the very best, archival products printed at state of the art labs with cutting edge technology.

loose prints & albums
Individual prints and albums range from $60 - $150 per image, depending on size and finishing options. 
the heirloom box
The heirloom box is available at $148 - $190 per matted image, depending on quantity.
wall art
Wall art ranges from
$350 - $2298
depending on size and product type.
All wall art is ready to hang and includes installation by licensed and insured professionals.

Most clients spend about $3000 on their final artwork. Of course, this is completely customizable - you choose exactly what you'd like to order, and you won't make that final decision until you see your portraits.

You deserve it!

Book your dream session by scheduling a consultation call.

 

I can't wait to get to know you!

hey, mama!

i'm fraidy. i'm a photographer.

  I know what magic looks like. I can see yours. I know how to bring it forward, and how to capture it with my camera. I also know what it's like to be a mother of children who are growing up too quickly. I know how they make your heart burst with joy (and some other things, too) and how you want to hold on tight and let them fly at the same time. That is why I have made it my mission to create the most magical portraits you have ever had of your family. I want to create artwork for you that is emotional enough, exquisite enough, and timeless enough to be handed down the family line as treasured heirlooms. Time flows like water, and there's only one way to freeze it. This is your story. Let me help you remember :)
