2019-2020 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 schedule my portrait sessions to take place on Mondays through Thursdays, because my weekends are dedicated to photographing weddings and spending time with my family.  There may be an additional fee for weekend scheduling if you cannot accommodate a Monday through Thursday 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!

FAMILY / high school senior / Maternity / engagement Portrait Sessions (OUTDOOR)

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 you early birds out there!)  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 download and share your gallery. Your online gallery will include at least 40 high-resolution edited digital images. Scroll to the bottom of the page for pricing.

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 read the next section below.

EXTENDED FAMILY Portrait Sessions (OUTDOOR)

I get a lot of requests for extended family portrait sessions, especially during the summer and over the holidays.  My standard sitting fee for an extended family session is $600 for the first 5 people, plus an additional $25 per extra person being photographed (so, 10 people = $725, 15 people = $850, 20 people = $975…). 

These sessions last between 45 minutes to 1 hour and take place at outdoor locations either very early in the morning (close to sunrise) or approximately 1.5 hours before sunset.  I will capture one large group portrait as well as portraits of each smaller family unit.  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 download and share your gallery.

Newborn Sessions

I offer two different types of newborn sessions: in-home lifestyle sessions and posed studio sessions.

Lifestyle sessions take place in my clients’ homes and are not posed. Lifestyle sessions last 1.5-2 hours and can be scheduled when your baby is any age. I focus on capturing your baby’s real environment and your family’s natural interactions with each other and your new baby. I typically photograph in locations such as your baby’s nursery, the living room, and the parents’ bedroom. Your gallery will include a variety of images of the baby alone, as well as the baby being held and loved on by all family members living in your home - pets included!

Posed sessions take place in my studio when your baby is between 4 and 12 days of age. I offer two types of studio newborn sessions: wrapped mini sessions and full sessions. Wrapped mini sessions last 1.5-2 hours and include two different wrapped poses of the baby alone, resulting in 10-15 images. Full newborn sessions last 3-4 hours and include wrapped poses as well as additional beanbag and prop poses, resulting in at least 30 images. Parents and siblings are invited to participate in full sessions, but not mini sessions.

Your newborn photos will be professionally edited and uploaded to a viewing gallery approximately 2-3 weeks after our session.  Once your gallery is uploaded, you will be able to download and share your gallery. Scroll to the bottom of the page for pricing.

Headshots

Headshot sessions take place in my Shillington studio and last between 30-45 minutes. I will provide wardrobe guidance and posing direction that will help us achieve the most flattering images. Optional add-ons include professional make-up application and on-location travel. Your photos will be professionally edited and uploaded to a viewing gallery within 3 days of your session.  Once your gallery is uploaded, you will be able to download and share your gallery.
