Sessions & Pricing

What’s the experience like?
Sessions with me are laid back, yet fun and sometimes fast paced (depending on the session). I don’t like a forced smile, so my only rules are to be yourself, relax, and have fun. I’m not strict in any way, so do what feels right! Better, more natural images will result when you are comfortable, and that is what I want for you as keepsakes from our time together. Our sessions are customized to fit your needs and interests, so please let me know what you have in mind, and I will try my best to accomodate that. Because this is not your typical portrait session, my style may not fit what you are looking for. That’s okay! It’s important that you think we will be a good match before booking a session so we will both be thrilled with the final images.

What’s the investment?
Creative Fee | $125
The non-refundable creative fee secures your session date and covers my time and talent only. The fee, in its entirety, is due on the day of our session. It provides you with a 1-3 hour on-location photo session and a 10 day online gallery* of usually 20-30 proofs from which to select images for purchase. Choose from the following session types:

newborn +$25: focus on the baby (under 2 weeks) and some interactions with mom and dad
maternity: focus on the mom-to-be before baby’s debut, may include dad too
just the kids: up to 3 siblings
senior: focus on the graduate; 2-3 locations
couple/engagement: focus on the couple
family +$50: a more candid session for up to 5 members of same immediate family**, more proofs

-Add $25 per additional subject in ‘just the kids’ and ‘family’ categories.
-I accept cash, checks or credit card.
-Credits & prices expire 30 days after gallery is posted. Credits and special offers are non-transferable and not redeemable for cash.
-Unordered images will be purged after 60 days.
-Shipping charges apply to out-of-town orders or if client requests shipping.
-Orders take 2-8 weeks to process (books take the longest). Orders are delivered once all items are in.

*Galleries are good for 10 days; $50 to upload an additional 7 days.
**Immediate family includes parent(s) & their child(ren). I cannot combine sessions with other families.
