I know that all photographers run their business differently.  I want to make sure that we are the right fit for each other. Portrait sessions are completely customized.  We will discuss your likes and dislikes, wardrobe selections and locations all guided by my 20 years of experience.  Together we can create something uniquely customized to your family or child.

  • Each session will include an initial design consultation on the phone or in person. So let’s chat about what you have in mind. 
  • You will have access to all of my many props, including backdrops, themed props and outfits options when available.
  • I spend time editing each portrait, so don’t worry about the scratch or bruise, I will make sure it disappears…POOF!  And if you ask nicely, I can remove any blemishes too.
  • A preview, one fully edited portrait can be shared with you within 48 hours.  This can be online or privately.  I just want you to see what we created and be as excited about it as I am.
  • Ordering appointment session  2-3 weeks after your portrait session.  We can sit down and chat about the kiddos while viewing your portraits.  Then, together, we can choose the Collection or products for your family to enjoy.
  • Do you get all the digitals? Yes you can, but you don’t have to. You can choose to order one portrait or all of them.

Ordering Sessions

Ordering sessions typically take place 2-3 weeks after your portrait session. At your ordering session, you will see all of your beautiful images presented to you in a slideshow set to music.

Once we have some fun looking at them on the studio tablet, we can start the process of selecting the images that you would like to see printed as gifts, albums or hung in your home.

I have sourced only the best items for my clients, and it has taken years to compile the collection of products I offer. Most of the products are made here in the USA, but some come from as far away as the Netherlands.

One thing to remember with all my products, if you order a printed item/product, you also receive the digital file for you to reproduce as much as you want.

I hate it when I can’t find a price on something….so I always am upfront with the services and costs. Most clients spend from $450-1200 including the Session Fee and print/digitals/gifts

Happy Clients
