Prepare For Your Session


Photography Credit: Cristin Spielman


As you get ready for your photo shoot, think about the type of background(s) you desire, as well as any themes you might want. Would you like the mountains in the background, or would you prefer a pond or lake? Are you interested in a wide open meadow, or would you prefer a more downtown urban feel?

Clothing Selection

Wardrobe plays a big role in your photography. When you book your appointment, I will spend time consulting with you on your clothing and accessories choices. During your shoot, feel free to bring a wide variety of choices and we’ll see what works best.

Unique Style

Whether you prefer your images in all color, black and white, or a fun mix of both, I want you to LOVE your photos. I want to make sure that my style and yours will meet in the middle to make your captured memories truly unique. Prior to your session, please communicate with me about the different style elements of photography that you desire for your session.


When you book your session with me, you will be asked to fill out my photographer-client contract. Please read it and sign it as soon as possible to ensure your event date and time are reserved. Please review the Photography Portrait Contract prior to your session and refer to it as often as you wish. If you have any questions, please contact me immediately.


Payment is due on or before the day of your session. For all sessions, I require a 25% non-refundable retainer to book your date and time. I accept cash, PayPal, checks (made out to Kimberly Hardouin please), or credit card. Please be aware that credit card charges will increase your balance by 3% to cover credit processing. Thank you!
