Coaching & Collaboration

When you work with me, communication is key (yeah, that rhymed and I don't mind). You'll never wonder where the project is or when you need to show up. I'll also guide you on what to wear, how to group everyone, and how to pose. I'm here to help at any point.

1.5 hours of shooting

I'll scout the perfect outdoor location for your family photoshoot, and we can try multiple spots while we're there. Add in wardrobe changes and you'll end up with many different looks. If you'd like to add any extended family members, we can do that for a small additional fee.

All post processing

Once your photos are taken, the real magic begins. I'll use my technical and artistic skill to professionally retouch 15 of your photos so that colors pop, skin looks smooth, and eyes shine. Additional edits can be purchased for $35 per image (due to increased editing time).

EAsy digital delivery

Your photos will be developed at the local pharmacy. Just kidding! After I'm done editing, everything will be delivered online in a private gallery. You'll be able to download digital files, as well as purchase prints. You can also easily share the gallery with others.

How to Book


Request a Session

Send me a letter. JK. Haha! Just click any one of the "BOOK NOW" buttons to share your contact info, a preferred date & time for your session, and a quick message.


Share More Details

If your date and time are available, I'll approve the session and send you an brief questionnaire that will allow you share additional details for planning your session.


Contract & Invoice

To make sure we're all on the same page. I'll share a contract that clearly outlines the details of your project. You'll sign, pay a $90 retainer fee, and then your session is official!

When will your session dates be offered?

You can book your session and save $50 on any available date between June 1 and September 10, 2023. After that, you'll have to wait until October and November for fall sessions. The $300 package special may not apply at that time though.

What if extended family members want to join?

As is, this package is built for parents and their kids. If you'd like additional family members or pets to join in the fun, there will be a $25 fee per person—or pet.

Why? Every person added changes the way I have to approach shooting, lighting, and editing. This also results in more groupings that we have to capture during the session.

How can I order prints of my photos?

When you access your images, you'll be able to order prints directly through your private online gallery. There will be options for traditional prints, large-scale prints, pre-framed prints, and even cards.

However, your package also includes a print release, meaning you can use any commercial printing service to make prints or specialty items using your digital images. This print release is for personal use only.

How will payment be handled and when?

Once we select an official date and time, I'll send you a contract that outlines the details of your family portrait session. I'll also send you an invoice for an initial retainer fee.

This retainer fee is $90, is non-refundable, and goes toward the overall cost of your portrait session. This fee saves your date and time on my calendar.

Any remaining funds will be due at the time of our session. Cash or check are preferred. I'll keep you aware of the total and payment dates along the way.

What if I don't know what to wear or how to pose?

It's perfectly okay if you don't know. In fact, it's probably better if you let go of the thought that there's a perfect way to dress and pose. It'll help relax you.

All along the way I'll coach you on your wardrobe, what groupings we'll aim to capture, and how to position and pose. If you're willing to have fun with me everything will go easy.

Why is there a fee for additional images?

This is a great question. When our session finishes together, my job is only just beginning.

I have to look through all the photos to find the best ones, create a gallery, and use my artistic/technical skill to fully edit the photos. This retouching is what takes photos from "looks nice" to "WOWZA!" It also takes a good amount of time.

I limit the base portrait package to 15 photos in order to offer my time to you at a reasonable price. If you want any additional photos beyond these, the extra fee is just paying for my additional editing time.

Can I share my gallery with others?

Yes. You can easily share your gallery with anyone you like by sending them a link to it.

However, while you will be able to download the photos you selected (15 as a base and any additional for an added fee), anyone else accessing the gallery will need to pay for each digital download as well as any prints.

Do you offer couple and individual portraits?

Yes! Though I'm marketing this as family portraits, I'll gladly shoot your couple or individual portraits. Just be sure to share that important detail when you initially book.
