Let's talk about your adventure
First stop, get your Session Prep Guide for tips on what to pack and what to wear!
Raw, real emotions and experiences are what I love most about adventure photography. I don’t want to just meet your family at a pretty spot, pose you, snap some photos, and call it a day.
I want your session to be an experience with the people you love that you enjoy and remember from this season of your life forever.
Whether we explore local lake cliffsides with your little ones, or hike deep into national park wilderness, I want your family to love your experience together. I’ll be capturing every moment, from the epic overloooks to all the special little moments in between.
You just have to enjoy the adventure.
If you have kiddos, prep them for an adventure and encourage them to explore along the way! If you’ve booked a session for you and your loved one, get ready for a laughter-filled adventurous date together.
Bottom line, you come to experience the intimate adventure and gorgeous landscape, and I’ll be there to capture it all.
Once your session date is on the books, you'll find a quick questionnaire (+ the nitty gritty stuff like your contract and invoice) in your inbox! I want to get to know you, your family, what's special about this season of your life, and what you love about one another. This is your chance to start dreaming about your session! If you have ideas for a sweet sunset picnic with your family or a romantic champagne cliffside date, share them! If not, let me know and we'll plan the most amazing adventurous experience together. I'm here for any recommendations, ideas, and advice ya need. If you're booking a more involved and extensive Adventure session, we'll schedule a meetup or phone call and really dig into all the fun details like where you're staying, what trails you're interested in, and any help you need planning your adventure.
I don't want your session to just be about taking photos. I want your session to be an experience that you enjoy and remember forever this chapter of your life with the people you love. Y'all, I mean it when I say "adventure photography." If the vision we plan for your session is a romantic cliffside picnic at sunset, I want your evening to be exactly that - a romantic cliffside picnic, that happens to include your third-wheel photographer for an hour or so. Your photos should capture exactly who you are as a family, what you love about each other, and the adventures you're enjoying in this season. That means I don't believe in overly-posed photos, I believe in raw and real. I'll get things started - ya know, tell you want to do with your dang hands - then step back for you to enjoy your adventure.
After your dreamy and intimate adventure is over, I'll start on the super fun work of editing the most AMAZING photos of you and your loved ones. Turnaround time is usually 1-2 weeks for Mini + Full sessions, and 3-4 weeks for Engagement + Adventure sessions. When your photos are ready, you'll get an email with the link and password to our personal gallery, where you can download all your photos in high, print-quality resolution.
All the little details
Sessions booked outside the local Val Verde country area will include an additional travel fee as well as a deposit. Be sure to include where you'd like to have your adventure on your questionnaire, and I'll send you a quote for your travel fee!
Your contract will include a clause that allows me to use your photos in the promotion of A Wanderlust Narrative, such as website portfolios and social media content. If you would like to discuss this further, or if you have any specific requests like holding announcement photos until a certain date, just let me know when we go over your contract!
Final payment is due by your session date, and can be made through the PayPal invoice you'll receive.
