The Process

Begin with the end in mind.

You know you need family portraits or portraits of your children, but what are you going to do with them? At Elle Photography we begin with the end in mind, which means, before a camera is picked up, we have a plan for where and how these photos will hang in your home or the story we want to tell in your family album.


A consultation kicks off the process to get to know your family better and to learn more about you and your kids’ dynamics allowing us to capture your kids’ for who they truly are. We’ll discuss clothing and which products will suit your home best.


If you had a session in the past you’ll know that photo sessions can be a little stressful. The kids may have missed a nap or just woke up cranky and Dad is not cooperating willingly either. If you can get them dressed and to the studio, Elle will take care of the rest and then you can relax. You may be surprised how much fun everyone will have (even Dad).

3.ordering appointment

Approximately one week after your photo shoot, you will come to the studio for your ordering appointment. Your View and Order appointment is the time set aside to finalize your portrait order, so be sure and schedule a time when both mom and dad can be there.

Using our state-of-the-art software and photos of the walls in your home, Elle will show your portraits scaled onto your walls, which solves the problem of what size to order; not too big, not too small, but just right!

Elle will guide you every step of the way using your goals from the consultation to achieve your vision for your family portraits.

4.Delivery and Installation

3 - 4 weeks later, I’ll hand-deliver your photos and install any wall art galleries you ordered.
