How far in advance should I book my session?

Session schedules book, on average, at least 6-8 months in advance. If you are considering a session, please contact me as soon as possible. It is never too early to get in the books! We shoot a limited number of sessions per year. Sessions are only scheduled during weekdays, either first thing in the morning, or 90 minutes before sunset.


Does my session include the "digital files"?

I am sure you have checked out many websites looking for the answer to this very question and each photographer is different. Having access to the digital files would be important to me as a consumer, which is why I include the images in the cost. The session fee of $600 includes 20 hand edited images on USB with rights to print as you choose.


Can I print my own photos from the USB since it's included?

Yes, you can order images from wherever you choose. However, please keep in mind that our trusted printer uses 256 inks versus the 56 inks that typical printers use. Your image will be preserved on archival paper that guarantees the print for 100 years. Your print will also be color corrected and checked at every step of our process for quality. Ensure that your images will look their best and last forever by preserving your awesome memories with professional printing. You'll be happy you did!


What else does the fee cover?

Your session fee also includes my time to plan each aspect of your session (from the perfect location, what to wear, the perfect time to shoot, etc) time on location creating your vision and the creative post-processing of your images in my digital darkroom.

You will also receive an online personal code-protected gallery of your images to share with friends and family. Ordering is made easy through your gallery as well... like it, buy it, and we'll ship it via FedEx to anyone after only a few clicks!


How long is my gallery online for purchases?

You will have access to your gallery for seven days. Once your gallery has expired, you may reactivate it for a fee if necessary.


What kind of pricing can I expect?

I love when clients utilize the awesome services that are provided to display prints and gallery wraps around their home from a trusted printer vs. keep the images locked on their USB or worse yet, printed elsewhere (which may result in unsatisfactory prints with blue/red colored hue). Our system is calibrated with the printer, which allows for perfect color and superior quality.

4x6 ($6) 5x7 ($9) 8x10 ($15) 8x12 ($18) 11x14 ($27) 16x24 ($75) 24x30 ($105) 24x36 ($125) 30x40 ($150)


How long do sessions last?

Typically, session last between 1-2 hours.


Any other ideas to make our photos picture-perfect?

I always HIGHLY suggest a makeup artists for moms... I truly feel every mom is beautiful, but I also feel that a professional makeup artist can bring out that beauty 1,000x over! Hiring a professional makeup artist ensures makeup is camera-ready and polished. You will look your best, which will make you feel your best... and that combo will be killer in your overall end result. Please let me know if you want some referrals. I work with the best makeup artists around!


How long will it take to view my images?

It typically takes two to three weeks to get your images uploaded to your viewing gallery. Once your gallery has been loaded, your disk will be mailed to you shortly thereafter.


 Why does it take a few weeks?

I take pride in each image that is produced and treat each one like a piece of artwork, because it is! I edit sessions the way I "saw" them in my heart, which means each one has its own style, warmth... feeling. I don't rush the editing process, and I appreciate your understanding and patience in advance!


What if my kids (or husband!) just isn't "into it"? It's going to stress me out!

First, don't stress. Your entire family will feel it. I am great at reading situations and working with family dynamics. I feel that I am a natural nurturer and I am very sympathetic to the uneasy feeling many children (and adults) have around a camera! 'Reading people' comes naturally to me, so I try to use this intuition while photographing clients... my goal is to help anyone who may start to feel uncomfortable, relax. Sometimes that means simply putting down the camera and interacting a little bit. Plan in advance and stay calm on the car ride over... your kids will sense your emotion... so leave everything up to me!
