Each session is up to 90 minutes in length. You may choose to book multiple sessions at a time to receive a discount. I recommend this for new mamas who wish to book maternity and newborn sessions or for new parents who wish to book milestone sessions within their child’s first year. All sessions must take place within 18 months of original purchase. You must book sessions together to receive a discount.

A lot more goes into photography than what you see at your session. It’s not just a quick click of the shutter and hand over the images. A lot goes on behind the scenes of a successful business. There are more affordable options available to you but I aim to offer an unforgettable experience for each of my clients. I tailor my sessions to each individual client and guide you every step of the way. I believe your story is worth sharing in thoughtful and genuine way, unique to your experience. The products I provide for clients are heirloom quality and will last for generations to treasure and enjoy. Your images are works of art that I take the upmost pride in. I want them to live on your walls and not on a hard drive.
Session retainers cover your consultation, wardrobe assistance, session time (and travel to and from), and ordering session. Session fees are priced to cover the cost of providing these services. All digital images and products are selected in your ordering session and are not included in the session fees.
I hand edit each image for color and quality. The images you see at your ordering session can only be properly replicated through a professional printing lab who is calibrated to print your images accurately. Your images are printed on premium archival acid free paper, framed and matted to withstand aging, and printed with premium inks. Online and big box store printers are not calibrated to match my computer so images will not print accurately (they end up dark, or too green, or too pink). They do not use archival inks and papers because they are designed to be cheap. However, printed images are better than images trapped on the computer. I am an advocate for printing, no matter how it’s done. This is why I aim to provide heirloom quality options for printing as well as digital files so you may print on your own.
All transactions are accepted electronically through QuickBooks online. You have the option to pay with a major credit card or electronic bank transfer. Credit Card transactions are subject to a 2.75% transaction fee. A signed contract and the retainer, or session fee, is due in full before a session can be booked. All retainers are non-refundable but can be applied to future sessions (within 18 mos of original transaction) if a session needs to be rescheduled. 2 - 3 weeks after your session, you will have the opportunity to view your images in an online gallery and make selections for purchase at your online ordering session. A separate invoice will be delivered, and upon receipt your order will be placed. Anticipate an additional 2 weeks for order processing and delivery.
2 - 3 weeks following your session you will receive a link to your online viewing gallery. All your images will be given a basic edit to give you an idea of how the final product will look. Your final selections will be hand edited for fine detail and quality. We will set up a meeting through Skype to discuss your image and product selections. Final proofs will be provided via online viewing gallery before orders are made. You can expect to receive your order with in 2-3 weeks of placement.
I encourage new parents to schedule their newborn sessions within the first 14 days of life. All my sessions are lifestyle sessions, which mean I am more of a ‘fly on the wall’ documenting your new life with baby. The first 2 weeks of life for most babies are the sleepiest, and skin conditions seem to be less prevalent. All newborn sessions take place at the client’s home. There is no need to worry about having a perfectly clean home to shoot in. I do an in-person consultation before all in-home sessions to discuss to best options for your session.
It depends on the client! I like to choose a location that fits each family. Whether that’s an urban setting, a nature park or the comfort of your own home. Your location should be more than just a pretty background. It should represent your family’s story! Are you homebodies that like to play board games together on Friday night? A session in your home sounds perfect! Do you love to get out and explore nature on the weekends? Let’s visit one of the local parks. Or maybe getting dressed up and having a night on the town is what you love most. There are so many fantastic urban settings to choose from. I work with each client to decide the perfect location for their session!
Right now I offer mini sessions twice a year. In the Spring I hold Mommy + Me Snuggle Minis and in the Fall I offer Family mini sessions. They are subject to change at any time.
