This questionnaire will help us to create a session that captres you in this special moment of your life. I'm excited about seeing your personalities, your sweet relationships, and giving you beautiful images that make you smile every time you see them hanging on your walls! Gather around, make some treats, and have fun filling out this little questionnaire. Don't forget, the more you tell me the more fun we have at your session. I love having the opportunity to create a session that captures the essence of you right now, at this stage of life. I want you to be able to look back on these images and see the way your life unfolded every day, the nuances, eccentricities, silly antics, quiet moments, and relationships between each person. This questionnaire is a big key to us working together and customizing a shoot that is exactly you. I'm so excited to work with you! What is your email address?
