At Moments in Life Photography, we begin with the end in mind.  Creating beautiful art of your loved ones is only part of the process.  Imagine the beauty of your home with gorgeous framed wall portraits, canvas collections, and lovely hand-crafted albums all featuring the most treasured moments in your life!  Before we photograph any images, we need a plan for how they will be displayed in your home. Creating a plan and photographing for that plan results in a session that makes magic. The entire portrait process takes place in several different meetings with us - The Consultation, the Session, the Preview & Ordering Appointment, and Product Delivery.

1 - The Consultation.

Our goal isn't to take your picture. We want to get to know you and your family. We want to know your style, and what you want the session to say about you.  We want to work with you to create a plan of where you want to display your professionally printed portraits. You will be able to see, touch and feel the products we offer and start to think about what your end result will be in your home.

2 - The Session

The only thing you need to do on the Big Day is come hang out with us!  You just have to relax and enjoy the moment.  We will do the rest.  We can assure you that we will do what it takes to bring out those personalities, and capture them beautifully! 

3 - The Preview & Ordering Appointment

Before we say goodbye at your session, we will set an ordering appointment - typically 2 weeks out.  We will choose only the best images from your session, lightly pre-touch them, and present them to you in a slideshow as you relax and enjoy your beautiful results!  Your View and Order appointment is the time set aside to finalize your portrait order, so be sure and schedule a time when anyone involved in the decision-making process can be there.  We will then help you in the decision making process on what products and portraits you would like to display in your home and how to display them.  


3 - Product Delivery

Finally, we work carefully with our professional craftsmen to produce only the highest quality heirlooms to display in your home.  Within just a few weeks, you will be able to share and gaze at the moments that have stolen your heart; that you have deemed irreplaceable and unforgettable.

And that's it!   I'll be here each step of the way to make sure it goes as smoothly as possible, and I hope we can become close friends through it all.
