how it works


Because my goal is to really capture someone's spirit--human or furry!--as much as possible, I like to schedule some time to chat before the photo session. We will also finalize the time, a rain date, the location, the outfit(s), and what we're trying to achieve creatively.

The fee is due before the session starts. I also ask the subject or parents to sign a model release. It's a standard document, and it allows me to use the photos for my website, or for publication. 


I do my best to make the photo-shoot itself a fun moment with you and your family! The session will take place on location: indoors, outdoors, or both. We can shoot the photos  in your back yard, inside your home, in a park, in the city, in multiple locations--pretty much anywhere agreed upon.

It can take anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on how quickly the desired result is achieved. Sometimes the spark or magical moment can take a little bit of time to happen. I keep taking pictures until I feel I have enough good images and hopefully, some great ones!


2 to 3 weeks after the photo shoot, you will receive an email with links to 2 password-protected photo galleries on the Little Spirit Things website:

1) A high resolution gallery where you can purchase a variety of prints and photo products by clicking on "Buy Photos". (And select the images for your 10 free prints--I don't believe in bit-rot!) Share images in this gallery with friends and family or on social media, by clicking on the small box & arrow symbol below the picture.

2) A private medium resolution gallery where you'll be able to download the images in medium resolution by clicking on the arrow symbol below each picture. If  you prefer to download the entire gallery, click on the large arrow symbol above the picture. You will be asked to enter your email address and will receive a download link.

Of course, Contact me if you have any questions!
