2018-2019 Portrait information

All of my portrait packages include high resolution edited digital files with permission to print.  If you want to purchase high quality prints, canvas, or vivid metals from me after your digital files have been delivered, you can do so at very reasonable prices, or you can have them printed on your own.  I want you to love my photographs and display them in your home, so I will gladly recommend printing labs to use, as well as those to avoid.  Just ask!

I try to schedule portrait sessions to take place on weekdays, because my weekends are dedicated to photographing weddings and spending time with my family.  There is an additional fee for weekend scheduling if you cannot accommodate a Monday through Friday appointment.

Do you love my photographs, but are bummed because we’re not local to each other?  No worries!  Don’t let distance stand in the way of you receiving the images that your heart desires!  I will gladly travel to you as long as my expenses are covered!

 

CHILD MINI SESSIONS (outdoor or studio)

These sessions are intended for 1-2 children between the ages of 6 months and 16 years.  They last 30 minutes and take place at outdoor locations or in my studio located at the GoggleWorks.  I will gladly schedule a complimentary consultation before your session to answer any questions you might have or to offer wardrobe guidance!  Your photos will be professionally edited and uploaded to a viewing gallery approximately 1-2 weeks after our session.  Once your gallery is uploaded, you will be able to select 8 images to download, or you can choose to upgrade and download the entire gallery.  If you wish to have more than two children photographed at one time, a full family session may be a better fit.

FAMILY/high school senior/Engagement/MATERNITY Portrait Sessions

These sessions last between 1-1.5 hours and take place at outdoor locations approximately 2 hours before sunset.  (I will also schedule them at sunrise, for all of you early birds!)  I recommend bringing a change of clothing in order to add variety to your images.  I will gladly schedule a complimentary consultation before your session to answer any questions you might have or to offer wardrobe guidance!  Your photos will be professionally edited and uploaded to a viewing gallery approximately 1-2 weeks after our session.  Once your gallery is uploaded, you will be able to select 15 images to download, or you can choose to upgrade and download the entire gallery.

These sessions are meant for immediate family only.  While the impulse to include extended family members is understandable and is definitely a kind thought, this decision turns the session into something less intimate and makes it more difficult to manage.  Having so many people around often becomes distracting for everyone – especially babies and children – and being able to capture everyone at their best becomes considerably more challenging.  If you wish to have extended family photographed, please contact me so we can discuss the details and see if I’m going to be the best fit for your vision.

Newborn Portrait sessions

If you are interested in booking a newborn session with me, I ask that you contact me as early in your pregnancy as possible and pay the retainer.  That gets your name on my calendar near your due date.  As soon as baby arrives, contact me to set up the actual photoshoot.  At that time, I will email you pointers to ensure that our session runs as smoothly as possible.  During your baby’s photoshoot, your only responsibilities are to help keep baby’s tummy full and to relax while I take care of the rest!!  Rest assured that your baby will be in wonderful hands, as I have been trained in newborn safety and posing techniques, and consider your baby’s safety my top priority.

A note about scheduling:  If you are interested in scheduling a posed studio newborn session, the best time for those to take place is when the baby is between 4 and 12 days of age, because that’s when babies are sleepiest, most flexible, and have minimal skin flaws.  Lifestyle sessions can be scheduled for any age.  Your photos will be professionally edited and uploaded to your gallery approximately 1-2 weeks after our session.

A maternity session can be added to a newborn session at a discounted rate.  I prefer to schedule maternity sessions so that they take place between 32 and 36 weeks of pregnancy.

Lifestyle Newborn Sessions:

These sessions take place in your home, using beautiful natural light, and focus on your newborn, your family, and your connection with each other.  (I do not bring any of my studio equipment or props to these sessions, as the goal is to capture your family in your natural environment.)  Sessions typically last between 1.5-2 hours, depending on the baby's temperament.  Your photos will be professionally edited and uploaded to a viewing gallery approximately 1-2 weeks after our session.  Once your gallery is uploaded, you will be able to select 15 images to download, or you can choose to upgrade and download the entire gallery.

POSED STUDIO NEWBORN SESSIONS:

These sessions take place in my studio, using my collection of backdrops, wraps, hats, headbands, and simple props.  Sessions typically last between 2-4 hours, depending on the baby’s temperament.  I allow plenty of time for diaper changes, feedings, and baby snuggling!  I typically use a combination of natural light and studio lighting for these sessions.  Your photos will be professionally edited and uploaded to a viewing gallery approximately 1-2 weeks after our session.  Once your gallery is uploaded, you will be able to select 15 images to download, or you can choose to upgrade and download the entire gallery.
