Drop Anchor Photography

The Experience

Your experience begins with a styling consultation to discuss your perfect session, and ends with physical products (portraits, albums, canvases, digital images) in your hands. We use our expertise to carefully curate and artistically edit the most beautiful moments from your session.

The Consultation

Your consultation with Drop Anchor Photography is the first step in planning your Session. I want to learn about you, your family, your style, and the things that you love. We'll chat about locations and outfits, and clothing colors and accessories that look amazing on camera. We'll discuss your vision for the Session, and the types of portraits you're wanting for your family.

The Portrait Session

Time to meet at the location of your dreams. This is your time to simply arrive and relax with your family. Your work is done and is now in the hands of a professional. During your Session, I'll shoot a mixture of posed, lifestyle, and candids to visually tell the story of your family. I'll meet your children at their level, allowing them to have fun and let their personalities shine. I'll show you exactly what to do, where to place your hands, how to tilt your head. I'll make you look as beautiful as I'd want someone to make me look. This is your time to sit back and enjoy these precious moments with your family.

Design + Ordering Appointment

This is the fun part! Approximately ten days after your Portrait Session you'll be invited back to the Studio for your Design + Ordering Appointment. You'll see a slideshow of all of the images from your Session and all of our beautiful samples will be on hand for you to see, touch, and hold. Most of my clients ask to watch their slideshow 2 or 3 times before we even begin narrowing down their favorite portraits! Using our specialized Studio Software, we'll select your favorite portraits and mock up exactly what they'll look like hanging on your walls. You'll place your order and a short ten days later, everything will arrive at your home.
