Like so many other mom's, my love for photography grew out of the desire to capture the fleeting moments of my boy's childhoods. I believe life is beautiful even when it's messy (sometimes, ESPECIALLY when it's messy) and documenting it is meaningful! Nothing makes me happier than to walk away from a session not only with photos I'm confident my clients will love, but also knowing everyone had fun! Yes, you can have fun at a photo shoot. I'm happy to share that many families have texted me afterwards to say, "Thank you, we all had such a good time!"
*Please note: I require a $100 nonrefundable deposit when booking a session. This deposit will reserve your date and be credited towards your session. In case of a cancellation, the deposit will not be returned, but you will be able to reschedule your session. A cancellation means a lost opportunity for me to work with other clients who value photography as a way of capturing forever what's most dear to them.
Whenever possible, I like to keep things simple, for myself, and for my clients. I don't want to exclude images from your gallery that I feel tell the story of your family's time together, and I certainly don't want to add to your to-do list. With both Family and Newborn Sessions, you will receive ALL the best images from your shoot! I deliver high-resolution, hand-edited digital files which are carefully chosen by me. These digital files are yours to keep forever. Yours to print and share however you like.
Family Session ~ $575* (includes 1.5 hour session, 30 hand-edited, high-resolution files, and one 8x12 professional print). Family Sessions take place at your home or an agreed upon location. With a Family Session you will receive a few posed images with the remainder of the images being mostly Lifestyle and candid moments. *There is a $100 charge per additional family for extended family sessions.
Mini Session ~ $350 (includes 45 minutes session, 6 hand-edited, high resolution files, and one 8x10/12 professional print. Additional files available at $25 each). A good fit if you are looking for more posed images or that perfect family shot for your holiday card.
Newborn Session ~ $600 (includes session, 30 hand-edited, high-resolution files, and one 8x12 professional print). I take a Lifestyle approach to photographing newborns. Your newborn can be sleeping, nursing or wide awake. I want to capture the first precious few weeks when you bring your baby home. Newborn sessions take place in-home and at your baby's pace.
Senior Session ~ $400 (includes 1 hour session, 15 hand-edited, high-resolution digitals, and one 8x12 professional print). These sessions capture your high school senior with images as unique as your child.
Let's Be Real Session ~ $800. Exactly what it sounds like. I come to your house. We hangout and I document what a morning or an afternoon in your life looks like. I'm there for about 3 hours. But, it's not an exhausting 3 hours since you are just doing your thing. No one's posing. No one is dressed up and the word "cheese" is never uttered. Celebrate and document your time together in a unique and honest way. These types of images are the ones you will pull out and look at over and over again.
Events ~ Happy to photograph anything from your child's 1st birthday party to grandpa's 85th! Also booking, baptisms, communions, and second weddings. (Includes hand-edited, high-resolution digitals carefully chosen by me). Please contact me for pricing.
