Scheduling a Session
In order to be at my best for my family and my clients, I shoot a very limited number of sessions each month, so it is best to schedule at least 2 weeks in advance. Within a few days of booking your appointment, you and I will discuss expectations, location, clothing options and any questions you may have. At this time I will collect the session fee which reserves your date and time. This deposit is non-refundable. In case of inclement weather, we will reschedule your session.

What to expect during your session
I have a positive and relaxed approach to each session. I want you to have fun and enjoy our time spent together. Sessions take place at an outdoor location of your choice- such as a park, a farm, downtown, or your backyard. The optimal time for the most flattering natural light portraits is early morning or a couple of hours before sunset.

Types of Sessions
Family and Engagement Sessions-
I like to do a few traditional group shots and poses along with some playtime candids, capturing you in action with the ones you love. Full sessions include individual portraits of family members and various groupings. A typical session lasts about one hour and may include up to 5 immediate family members without extra cost.

High School Senior Sessions- Seniors may choose up to two locations with 3 outfit changes. Plan on between one and two hours for your session as we consider travel time and changing of clothes.

Newborn Sessions- If you want me to capture the wonderful newness of your baby, it is best to photograph the little one within the first 10 days of life. During this time babies are generally very sleepy and still curl up easily.
Newborns may be photographed at your home or, if weather is favorable, outdoor sessions make gorgeous settings for baby portraits. I am flexible with my time as I understand the need to take breaks for feedings and diaper changes.

If you would like a newborn session please contact me while you are still pregnant so we can schedule a tentative appointment. We will set a specific date and time once your little one has arrived.
