session work flow


  • 30 minute phone consultation to ensure we are a good fit and to introduce me to your family. What does your family love to do? What is a special time of day that we can capture? Who are the people in the family?
  • Before your session I will send you a questionnaire to get more specific details about each member of your crew and to allow me to really let everyone's personality. My goal is to stay true to each of you as well as your tribe. 
  • A few days before I will send you your customized session plan which is unique to your family. It has tips, tricks, and faqs to help everything go smoothly on the day of. This is to help put you at ease and make this experience fun for everyone and not stressful.

  • Time to document! I will arrive at our pre-determined time and location ready to jump in. 
  • Some family members might be camera shy- that's totally fine! I believe in a gradual approach as I want everyone to feel comfortable.This will look different for each situation: waiting for an activity to start, playing tag to release anxiety, or just having a conversation. 
  • I will stay the entirety of your session to ensure we get all of the special moments that are important to you. 


  • Your high resolution photos will be back to you within 3 weeks of our session. Your images will be delivered via a private, online gallery. 
  • Follow Xilo Photography on Instagram and Facebook to see a few previews. 
  • Once you receive your photos, you have the option to order prints.
