What to Expect


Firefly Nights Photography is a custom photography studio, which provides for a very personal experience. Custom photography is about creating a relationship with your family, as I will be watching your children grow through the years. It is about providing devoted 1:1 attention without worry of the next ‘in line’.  It is knowing you will receive beautiful and unique pieces of art as opposed to the same pose as everyone else.  And it is about going home with high quality products that you can’t receive in the general public.

Not only will the quality of the work be superior, but I take the time to get to know you and your children, find out what you really like and how that fits with my own aesthetic style. There is no rush to my sessions, and no pressure on children to “perform”. My approach, instead, is to capture your children being themselves. While I can provide backdrops and a studio set up, I also enjoy providing lifestyle portraits which are a beautiful way to display the natural love, tenderness, and interaction of a family.

My services include a studio session or specific location, use of my backdrops and props, photography session, and many hours of post processing. For location shoots, you will be expected to pay my expenses for any entrance fees, parking fees, or required permits.

After taking as many shots as the shoot allows, I select the best pictures (which may range from 20 to 40) to edit, turning each picture into art. Every single image that you will see has been enhanced to turn it from a “picture” to “art”. There are no additional fees for this customization, as it is at the heart of my services.

Approximately two weeks after your session (longer during busy season), my assistant, Erin, will contact you to schedule your ordering session.  Order sessions allow us to continue with a personalized experience.  They tend to last about 45 minutes.  All decision makers need to be present.  During these sessions, we will walk you through your edited images and help you decide on what you want.  We have learned that many people find it overwhelming to decide what to purchase.  That is why we have moved to assisting you through the process instead of leaving you to flounder on your own at home.  Your order is due in full at this time.  However, we do offer payment plans if needed.

After leaving, we will post the electronic slideshow put to music so that you may share the gallery with friends and family.  Orders take approximately two weeks to arrive at your home.
