I typically schedule in-home sessions to begin at 11am and outdoor sessions to begin about 90 minutes before sunset. These times tend to provide the best light.
To book your session, you'll sign a digital contract and pay a session fee of $275. This holds your date and covers my time preparing for and shooting your session. *The session fee does not include any image downloads or products.
You'll receive my wardrobe guide and session prep guide, so you feel ready and know just what to expect. I'll ask you to complete a short questionnaire to help me get to know you and your family. I'll be available to help with any concerns as your date approaches.
Your session will last about an hour, maybe a bit longer for newborns. It will be relaxed and natural, with no awkward poses or "saying cheese." Instead, I'll guide you with prompts and natural poses to elicit authentic moments and laughter.
Whole gallery download
(approx. 75-100 images)

20 high res digital downloads
$75 print credit
10 high res digital downloads
$50 print credit
A couple weeks after your session, you'll receive a slideshow of about 75-100 available images, and you'll have the option to purchase one of the following Collections of high res downloads/print credit. This allows you to view the images first and then make a purchase decision based on your budget and needs.
Once you've purchased a Collection, you'll have immediate download access and you can shop your gallery store with your print credit. This is the fun part, but it's also the most important part! Buying prints ensures that you have something tangible from our session that will last.
I've curated your gallery store to include unique high quality products at every price point.
Sometimes things come up or kids get sick. I'd much rather photograph you when you're feeling great, so if you need to reschedule, that's ok!
WHAT IF We HAVE TO RESCHEDULE?
Turnaround time is typically 2-3 weeks.
WHEN CAN we SEE our PHOTOS?
Yes! You can purchase prints through your online gallery, which is linked to one of the best pro photo labs in the country. Have another lab you wish to use? You can download your images through your gallery and use the print lab of your choice. However, I highly recommend you use my lab -- the quality of the prints is awesome!
Do you offer prints?
I'd love to because it's the best way to show people my work, but I will never use or share your images without your permission.
Will you be using my photos on your website or in marketing materials?
Yes! I provide natural looking edits to help you look your best. This includes removing blemishes and dark under eye circles, as well as other edits as needed.
Do you provide any retouching to address blemishes, under eye circles, etc.?
Do you put a watermark or
logo on your photos?
Images purchased by the Client are delivered free of watermarks and logos.
We'll reschedule at your convenience.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
Outdoor family sessions usually last about an hour, while in-home and newborn sessions sometimes take a bit longer. I’m flexible so if things take longer than expected that’s ok!
How long will the session last?
Snacks for children.
A pacifier if needed, for in-between shots.
A lovey if needed, for in-between shots.
WHAT SHOULD we BRING?
Once you finalize your booking, you'll receive my Wardrobe Guide and my Session Prep Guide! These guides will tell you everything you need to know, and I'm available to help if you still have questions.
WHAT SHOULD we WEAR?
I want to include the grandparents. Do you offer
EXTENDED FAMILY SESSIONS?
My sessions are typically limited to immediate family. But if you have a special session in mind, feel free to inquire.
I've had both of my shots plus a booster! I'm still happy to wear a mask if it makes you feel most comfortable.
