What should I expect for my family session?
Expect to have fun! Allow me to take over the task of “catching the shot” while you have a blast with your family. Play, tickle, get sandy, be silly, and truly enjoy the moment!
Photo sessions typically take 45 minutes to 1 hour (allowing time for breaks or feedings if needed). Photo sessions are mainly held outdoors, using natural light. I will shoot on the beach, at a park, your home, or your family’s favorite spot! I always enjoy discovering new places.
What is the cost of the photo session?
The cost of a photo session begins at $150 for kids and maternity. Session prices are based on number of people, location, and special requests. In order for me to accurately price your photo session, please visit my investment page or fill out the contact form. I will get back to you soon with your specific photo session price.
What does the photo session include?
The photo session includes the sitting and a private online gallery.
After the session, you have the option of ordering individual prints and enlargements, specialty items such as canvases, and the high resolution files of all or some of the photos from your session.
What should we wear!?
Keep it simple. Remember, you always want the people to be the focus of the photos, not the clothing. Wear the clothes that you love and make you feel good! It’s a good idea to coordinate your family, but not necessary to match exactly. For newborn sessions, be sure to have a black shirt with long sleeves handy.
When should I book my newborn’s session and what should I expect?
Expect the unexpected and know that whatever happens, it’s ok. Babies will cry, poop, pee, and spit up. Doesn’t bother me. Sometimes they will sleep and sometimes they won’t. I’m not phased one bit. We will take our time (up to 3 hours) getting adorable photos of your new addition. Turn up the heat (since those tiny ones get cold easily) and prepare for your first photo session. I will bring full studio lighting, backgrounds, baskets, blankets, and hats. Feel free to add your own special things as well. Newborn sessions are best within the first two weeks of your baby’s arrival.
What should I expect with my maternity session?
First, congratulations! It’s such an honor for me to take part in documenting such a special time in your life.
Maternity sessions generally take place in your 8th month. This is the time to really capture that true baby bump, but also the time before you feel your most uncomfortable.
My only goal is to capture your pregnant beauty, and I prefer to do maternity sessions outside in natural light with the backdrop of the beauty of nature.
I always encourage at least one outfit change and the participation of your partner. Most importantly, I want to hear what you would like out of your session and any ideas that you might have.
What should I expect with my senior session?
Once we have decided what clothes you will wear and once your makeup has been applied, now the fun begins. At a location of your choice, we will seek out looks and backgrounds that will compliment your clothing.
You only graduate from high school once! Why not make the most of it!! Each part of your senior portrait session is customized and we makes sure to capture every detail to make sure it is exactly how you want it. your images will burst with creativity, personality, color and light! Bring something that really represents you, ballet slippers or guitar. If it is special, bring it.
I schedule senior sessions Mornings and Evenings During the week. I recommend about 3 outfits, anything more it just seems like we are spending more time changing clothes. Wear your favorite outfit first and we can change as we go. I always try to offer a variety from formal, to casual, to fun in a session.
