What To Expect

31_felix_miniLife is beautiful. That little shy smile, the pouty lip, feeling the wind blow through your hair, the way he holds your hand, a sweet kiss, a hug from your baby…these are the beautiful little details of life that we never want to forget.

What will our time together be like?

First, be ready to have fun and relax.  If we can do these two things together, I promise you will love the results!  My style is casual, fun, spontaneous and sometimes a little unexpected.  You won’t hear me ask your child to say “cheese”.  I want to catch them as they are, their natural expressions, having fun, being michievous and yes, even pouting.  You may hear me sing a silly song, talk about purple pickles, bark like a dog or dance.  Trust me, I am working, it just looks like play!

Travel Sessions 

Travel sessions include 1-2 hours of shooting time on location.  We will work together to find the best location for your session.  The first step is to check and see when I will be traveling through your area.  You can check “Coming soon to a city near you” page or send me an email at lstradtner@mac.com.  If the dates work for you, you’ll want to get on my calendar by paying the session fee. Once you are booked and on my calendar, I will send you a client survey. This helps me get to know you a bit before our time together and it helps me to prepare. It also goes over my policies. Before your session we choose a location and I am happy to help you with outfit ideas and figuring out what to wear. I’ll also send you some tips on how to get the most out of our time together.

After Your Session

Within 2 weeks of your session I will contact you to let you know your gallery is ready for viewing. It will be active for 7 days.  Payment must be made in full prior to release of full resolution images. Due to the custom nature of my work, all fees are non-refundable. Digital downloads are sent within 24 hours of payment in full.  The purchasing of your images includes a print release – you can print your photos as big or as small as you like, as many times as you like.
