Getting to know you is a HUGE part of me creating the most beautiful photos of you and your family. Your photos should not only be beautiful, but reflect who you are. So after I receive your inquiry questionnaire, we'll schedule a time to talk and get to know each other. You can tell me all about your sweet family, what kind of artwork you're looking for, and I can walk you through all the details of working with me. By the time our call is over, you'll have everything you need to decide if the E. M. Anderson Photography experience is right for you.

Wardrobe & Planning Appointment


We'll meet in person to choose outfits for you and your family, and iron out all the details of your session like the right location, as well as finalize the date. You'll get to choose a dress from my client wardrobe (or your own closet) that you absolutely love. Once you've chosen your outfit, then we'll coordinate everyone else with that. Once the clothing choices are done, then I'll walk you through what to expect on your session day, and you can let me know if there are specific locations in your home where you'd like artwork displayed and the colors that fit best in your home.

Session Day


You'll start the day relaxed at home in your yoga pants while one of my favorite hair and makeup artists gets you photo ready with a beatiful, natural glow. It's all about looking like your best-self after all. Then you'll go about your day, making sure your kiddos get their nap, until our session. All you have to do is show up, pop on the outfit you chose, and spend time with your family while I take beautiful pictures. I'll give you direction every step of the way and go along with your kids' energy so you'll never be left feeling awkward or stressed.

Ordering appointment


After your session, we'll meet again so you can see your beautiful images for the first time. It can be overwhelming to just see a product in a list and wonder how it would actually look in your home. Using photos of your space, I'll help you choose which products and framed prints are the perfect fit for you and your home. We can even design a show stopping gallery wall with custom frames right during our meeting. About 6 to 10 weeks later, your beautiful artwork will be ready for you to pick up and enjoy!
