2019 Info Brochure

When you book a Standard Session, we'll also schedule a quick chat on the phone or over a cup of coffee to discuss the details of your session – the location, clothing ideas and suggestions, any props we'd like to include, etc. The session will last about 45 minutes, but length of time will depend on the number of participants and the location you choose. About two weeks after your session, I’ll be in touch with all the details to access your online proofing gallery where you will view all the best images from our time together, carefully selected and retouched by me. You will also have a $50 purchase credit to use toward your order. As a bonus, any orders placed during the first week will receive 10% off!

(No prints, products, or files are included in the session fee beyond using your purchase credit. $80 non-refundable retainer is due upon booking. $100 balance is due by the start time of your session.)

Standard sessions are perfect for:
• newborn portraits incorporating baby only shots and family shots •
• a big collection of family unit portraits including group and individual images •
• senior portraits •

 

 

We'll spend about 20 minutes together at one of several location options we'd choose from together. About two weeks after your session, I’ll be in touch with all the details to access your online proofing gallery where you will view the 8 best images from our time together, carefully selected and retouched by me. As a bonus, any orders placed during the first week will receive 10% off! A la carte purchases of prints and products will be available for ordering right from your proofing gallery.

(No prints, products, or files are included in the session fee. Full $100 session fee is due upon booking.)

Short sessions are perfect for:
• annual updates to the family prints around the house •
• newborn portraits with naturally posed solo shots of baby •
• childhood milestone portraits •

 

 

Let's take your wildest dreams and make them a reality! Storyteller sessions are individually curated from concept to completion. We'll schedule a pre-session consultation to discuss overall vision, the perfect location, costuming/styling, and timeline. The session will last about an hour, but length of time will depend on the number of participants and the complexity of the session. About four weeks after your session, we'll schedule an image collection reveal and ordering appointment including at least 10 of the best images from our time together, carefully selected and artistically edited by me. Storyteller sessions include your choice of a 16x20 gallery wrap canvas of your favorite image or a framed 12x24” Storyboard collage featuring up to four of your favorite images from the collection. Additional a la carte items may be added on at your ordering appointment.

(There are no online galleries or ordering options available at this time. $150 non-refundable retainer is due upon booking. $300 balance is due by the start time of your session.)

 

 


 

I’m also happy to offer these specialized session options throughout the year...

 

As the years go by, it’s vitally important that we take the time to capture moments with our extended family. Extended family session fees are based on number of people participating. When you book an Extended Family Session, we'll also schedule a quick chat on the phone or over a cup of coffee to discuss the details of your session: the location, clothing ideas and suggestions, any props we'd like to include, etc., as well as basic details about the participants and specific groupings you’d like us to capture. I work pretty fast and efficiently... the session will last about an hour, but length of time will depend on the number of participants and the location you choose. About two weeks after your session, I’ll be in touch with all the details to access your online proofing gallery where you will view all the best images from our time together, carefully selected and retouched by me. Anyone from the session is welcome to access the gallery and place orders. As a bonus, any orders placed during the first week will receive 10% off!

(No prints, products, or files are included in the session fee. $100 non-refundable retainer is due upon booking. Balance is due by the start time of your session.)

 

 

 

Throughout the year, I offer limited engagement “Short Story” sessions with fun themes at predetermined locations. These sessions are 15-20 minutes long, and include the session time, an online proofing gallery for viewing 5+ edited and retouched proofs. They also include a predetermined product or print.

Short Stories for kids start at $75 for up to three participants. Additional children may participate for $25 each. 2019 Short Stories are scheduled in March, June, August, September, and December.

Family Stories are $99 for one family unit, on set weekends in September, October, and November. Bookings open in August for these popular sessions and fill up fast!
