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 / 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 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 download and share your 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 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 $500 for the first 5 people, plus an additional $25 per extra person being photographed (so, 10 people = $625, 15 people = $750, 20 people = $875…). 

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.
