First, we'll meet up for a consultation before you even book to discuss what you need and are hoping for from your session. Once you decide to book, we'll plan out location, outfits, and a date. For styled sessions, we'll rough out some details during the consultation, which will be fine tuned as the date of the session gets closer.
What does a session cost and what comes with it?
Before we even get to the session, I will work with you to figure out what to wear, where we will go, and what the little details you want to make sure get photographed are. This is part of the reason I like to meet up beforehand, if at all possible. My goal is to create beautiful images that end up being artwork displayed in your home, whether on the wall or in a book on your coffee table.
My sessions start at $450. I do include low-res files of the final edited images, which can be downloaded from your (password protected) gallery - these are perfect for sharing on social media!
Do you have a studio?
I have moved away from studio photography for the time being, but I do know of some studios that are available for rent, if that is something you really want for your session.
Do I have to order prints through you?
If you purchase an option with digital files, you do not have to order prints through me. I highly recommend www.mpix.com for self-printing, but if you order prints and/or products from me, I make sure that your photos are printed beautifully before I present them to you.
What kind of gear do you use?
I am a Canon girl! I grew up using Canon (my father is a photography enthusiast, too!), and even though I could have switched, what can I say; I'm loyal. I have a 5DMIII and an array of lenses - the 24-70 is my workhorse, though.
Do you shoot destination sessions?
Absolutely. I actually travel to Maine every summer to do photography sessions with some amazing clients, and love to travel in general!
Do you require a deposit?
I do require a non-refundable retainer to hold and secure your session date. This retainer is applied to the session fee, not in addition to the session fee!
Do you have a military discount?
We have been a military family, and I appreciate how hard that is! I do have special offers for military families.
Do you have a studio wardrobe?
I have a slew of dresses for little girls available for my clients to use in their sessions, as well as a number of dresses for use in maternity sessions.
