Welcome to the exclusive portrait session guide, designed to help you create the perfect collection for your portrait experience. My clients value photography & view their portrait session as a chance to capture images they will treasure for years to come. The session fee for each session is $150 and that will include our time together, and an image reveal session. Keep reading for more info and let me help you capture your legacy!


Photography Philosophy

My goal is to provide you with fine art printed keepsakes that can be passed on to future generations in your family. I want to get to know you so we can create meaningful images that are truly unique to you and your family. My clients deserve so much more than JUST a USB drive, that will inevitably never see the light of day. This is why I am a full service photography studio. I will guide you through the entire process- from choosing outfits & location to deciding how to display your images.  I want your images to grace your halls, be the artwork of your home and tell your story and legacy for generations to come. These images will out live you and they will definitely outlive me. 

I devote myself to my art, my craft and my clients. Countless hours are spent in the post production of your images- including color correcting on our professionally calibrated monitors and meticulously retouching every image you order. I know this can be overwhelming, but smile because this is a short and fun season of  your life! I am here to help in any way possible to plan the session of your dreams because I believe that not only do you deserve beautiful images, but you deserve an incredible experience along the way! Below are my portrait collections. These collections are based most client's needs, but we can customize your collections with the a la carte menu as well.

Frequent Questions

A signed contract and your session sitting fee ($175) is due at the time of booking.  This puts you on my calendar and starts the planning process!

The next step is to set up a time to talk! I love meeting with each potential client where we can talk all about you, your family and your vision for the shoot.  We can meet in my studio office to look over albums, prints and products (or chat via Skype for those out of state). 

100% YES! I absolutely love traveling and try to make it as easy on my clients to get me where they are! Should we not live in the same state, please just let me know and we can talk all about my travel dates available!

I am happy to shoot on location or have you into my studio. This allows us to shoot regardless of weather and allows me to shoot year round. 

At the time of booking OR at the time of your session we will sync our schedules and set up your reveal session (aka ordering appointment) and get you on the calendar. usually that takes place about two weeks after your session. This can be done earlier should there be a time crunch.

What do we need in order to put us on your calendar and book our session date?

Where will our session take place?

When will we see our images?

Do you travel for sessions if I don't live in the same state?

What is the next step in booking you for our session?

What if your products are out of our budget?

Have no fear! I have something for EVERYONE! But if you are like me and love ALL your images and have to have ALL THE THINGS, I do offer payment plans because I want you to have what your heart desires!
