Q: What are "enchanted photos"? Can I schedule one of these sessions?
A: I get this question, A LOT! Here is the thing, the fantasy/whimsical/enchanted sessions I do are all at YOUR request! You can look at my whimsical galleries to take a look at what I have done in the past and let me know what you would like to schedule. Think about whom you want in the photos, what type of look you want for your photos, costumes, themes, everything! When we chat to schedule your session, let me know the answer to all of these questions and we will create a magical experience for you and your family!
