Investment

“A photograph is a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.”

Why Invest? 
 
Investing in a professional family photographer is a decision that many families make yearly. What makes it the right decision though? In an era where anyone can take a picture with their phone at basically anytime, why do families need professional portraits? 
 
This is why. 
 
It brings your family together, to interact with each other, to show their love for each other, to document changes in growing children, and to capture precious memories; whether they be happy or heartbreaking. Portraits of your family can bring joy, can comfort in a time of loss, and can help heal wounds and give closure. 
 
When you walk into a home and see portraits of family displayed, you instantly know what they hold true to their heart. It has been proven that having portraits of your children and your loved ones in your home sends a message that family is important. It boosts the self esteem of littles. It reminds you of past times in your life you may otherwise forget. 
 
You might be thinking – well I can capture many of these myself, why pay you? 
 
One reason is you can’t be in the photo if you are taking the picture. And if you are, it is most likely a selfie and let’s be honest – is that really a good angle? Further on that, I will be able to capture moments you share with your loved ones in ways that you cannot. The hugs, the true smiles with contagious giggles, and the love in your eyes. Those true emotions. That is what I will give you. Another major factor is that while many phone cameras take great photos, they don’t take artistic portraits that professional equipment does with the knowledge of a skilled photographer. Professional photographers are experienced in different lighting, posing, angles, ways of interactions to elicit true emotions of clients, beautiful locations, and the proper use of their professional grade equipment. That is what makes a picture a portrait, and what makes a photographer unique. When you invest in professional portraits, your money isn’t just going to the time of the session. Other key factors to remember are that photographers spend a significant amount of time planning and prepping for sessions, communicating with clients, traveling to locations, keeping records of their finances and just in general, running a business by themselves. Professional photographers invest a significant amount of money in equipment, props, and software that is used to edit and deliver your photos. These are costs associated with the session fee. So when you think that the session cost might be high for only spending 30 minutes with your photographer – remember that there is a lot more going on behind the scenes. 
 
I’m so glad you are here and I truly look forward to meeting you. My goal is to capture images that you will cherish forever and that show your family as their true selves in whatever season of life you are in. I hope that when you look back on the photographs I have taken for you, you feel something. I hope that you relive the moment, and that it takes you back in time. Again, and again, and again.

Full Sessions

$350, 30 professionally enhanced images 

Family, Couples, Engagement, Maternity, Speciality Milestone, etc

Full sessions are geared towards families with multiple kiddos and clients that want more posing options and edited images returned. I’m very efficient and waste no time in capturing all things important because as a mom of 3, I know that kiddos attention span dissolves quickly! With this in mind, full sessions generally last about 20-30 minutes. During that time I will capture images of each kiddo, all the important formal combos, as well as a lifestyle touch that will capture your family as they are now. I love capturing details in these sessions and the raw moments that are sweet and special. I will guide you into natural feeling poses and prompt you in ways that will allow you to have fun with your family, giving you real photos that you feel good about and want to share with others. Go into this session with trust in me, knowing that I have captured over 500 families photographs, many with multiple children, and I know how to balance session time, posing, prompts, and more to achieve the best possible outcome for your gallery!

They are a great, affordable option for families with young kiddos that want memories documented multiple times a year. During a mini session, there is no less effort on my part. I will guide you into natural feeling poses and prompt you in ways that will allow your personality to shine. Giving you real photos that you feel good about and want to share with others.

Senior Sessions

Being a senior is a rite of passage into adulthood. It also is the moment when parents look back on the years that have passed with their children, and are excited for what the world has on the table for their young adult. Document this transition, it is special. Together, the senior, family and I will work on 1 to 2 locations that will showcase who they are.

New locations and fun ideas are my favorite, so don’t hesitate to speak up when booking. The base senior session comes with 2 outfit changes plus cap and gown. You can expect this session to take about an hour to an hour and a half as I spend extra time with my seniors during the session.

Fresh 48/Newborn

$275, 20 professionally enhanced images
$375, 30 professionally enhanced images

Our tiny humans change SO much in the first few days of life. I would be honored to come to the hospital (or where ever) to document your fresh, new baby. A newborn session focuses on the details that will change so quickly – the toes, fuzzy cheeks, button nose. I will bring my letter board to document the birth stats of new one if requested. Swaddle blankets and hats are not provided. You will be responsible for providing speciality wraps or clothing but this is not required. Hospital blankets and hats are a classic, timeless touch and totally acceptable. Please ask for recommendations on boutiques I love! I look forward to meeting your tiny human and capturing one of a kind memories during a unique time in your life. You will never regret doing newborn photos! 
*often times the delicate skin of our new littles ones will experience redness or bumps, light skin touch ups will be applied to babies skin, keeping it looking real and natural but also soft and smooth. Please voice any concerns or preferences regarding editing.

Multi-Family Sessions

$400, 30 professionally enhanced images

Time and time again you will hear me preach about how important family is. With everyone’s busy schedules, it is often a challenge to get everyone together. If you can make this happen, then you will not regret booking a multi family session! Beforehand I will ask for you to make an important pose list which I will follow to a T during the session. This list not only makes the session run smoothly, but also ensures that nothing is forgotten or missed. The session will be efficient and smooth – handling a large group of people is no fear of mine. I will strategically place everyone in the larger group photos in a way that is eye appealing and coordinates well. I am happy to give wardrobe advice or answer any questions you have when planning this session. It can be a lot and I’m here for you! I can’t wait to meet your family!
