What does your session fee include?

  • Time:  Depending on the type of session you book, you will recieve 1-4 hours of my time to capture your moments.  
  • Customized location:  For family and other outdoor sessions, we will meet at an agreed upon location.  I will visit any new locations ahead of time to make sure we are using the best possible locations.
  • Studio styling: For newborn and baby sessions, you will meet me at my home studio.  A large selection of props are available to style your session just how you want it.  Time of day does not matter due to my studio lighting.  I keep the studio comfortable and warm!  Every newborn session includes a custom handmade hat or headband that you get to take home with you. 
  • In person viewing/ordering appointment:  At the time of your session, we will also schedule an appointment to meet either at my house or yours to view your images together.  Personal computers vary in how they display images.  This ensures you are seeing your images at their best!  At this session, you will be placing any print and product orders!
  • Professional editing:  I will choose the best of the best of your session to present at your viewing appointment.  Purchased photos will be edited fully. 
  • Online viewing:  A watermarked gallery of your images will be available on line for viewing in the event an in person appointment is not possible.  This is reserved for special situations only.
