What can I expect from a CLH images photo session?
A photo session is like a fingerprint – no two are alike. This is why I enjoy shooting so much. I never know what to expect and I’m always surprised. Lighting, setting, weather, the varying personalities of subjects and the way individual characters play off of one another… these are just a few variables that make each session so unique and so much fun.
Some clients prefer a great deal of direction, while others would rather just “be” while I capture their character candidly. Regardless of your style, my aim is to make you feel comfortable and to portray the essence of who you are. Even though you may feel a little uncomfortable in front of the camera at first, I’ll help you loosen up. Remember, the more relaxed and natural you act, the better your photographs will be. Play, talk, laugh, be silly and spontaneous. The moments when you forget I’m there all together is the moment I’ll capture who you really are, free of inhibition.
How do I schedule a session?
If you’re interested in scheduling a session, I encourage you to consider the type of setting that will assist me in capturing your true personality. If you’re at a loss for a location idea, don’t you worry: I am here to guide you through that selection process and I’m happy to offer ideas until we hit upon the location that’s just right for you.
I commonly schedule photo sessions on week days, so that I can leave my weekends open for shooting weddings, doing post-processing work, and sneaking in some time with my family. If you’re scheduling an indoor session, mornings and afternoons tend to be the best, as that’s when the ambient light is brightest and most dynamic. If you’re interested in an outdoor session, please note that I typically begin shoots about an hour or two before sunset; this is the time of day when the light is most diverse and also most flattering.
To schedule a session, simply click on the “Contact me” link above. Shoot me an email and we’ll go from there. Once the date and time have been established, I will draft up a contract and email it to you for your review. Both parties will sign the contract before getting started on the day of your session.

What happens after my session?
Within ten weeks of your session, your entire gallery will be posted to a the CLH images web gallery. From there, you can order prints, canvases, etc. I will also compile a personalized blog post of the highlights from your session, which you can easily link to on facebook or easily share via email with family and friends.
