Photography Pricing Information
Photography is an investment in your family's memories; an investment in the little moments and memories that can be carried on from generation to generation. I want your session with me to be a fun, memorable, and stress free experience. To make the photo session as simple and stress free as possible, I offer all inclusive pricing.
WHAT IS ALL INCLUSIVE PRICING?
As parents, we all lead busy and complicated lives; therefore, I want to provide a high quality service with easy and clear pricing for my clients. My style of photography results in a collection of images that speak to your family's unique beauty and connection. All of the packages below are all inclusive, which means you pay one fee for everything. The fee includes the time and talent of the photographer, session time, hand editing of your images, pre-consultation services, sneak peeks on social media, an online viewing gallery, your gallery of digital images delivered via high resolution download, and printing rights to your images.
Because I want you to print your images, your online gallery will provide you with direct access to a professional printer from which you can order heirloom prints and boutique products and every package includes a discount code to use in the shop. I can even help you via an in home consultation to help you to display your art or design a custom photo album.
FAMILY SESSION - $650
A family session is taken at an outdoor location or in the comfort of your own home. Expect to play, cuddle and have fun during this session. These sessions are approximately one hour in length and feature a blend of lifestyle and posed portraits. My goal is to capture the unique bond and connection that exists within your family. So, I will spend some time prior to the session getting to know you a bit. The session is for immediate family members. If you wish to include extended family members, an additional fee will be applied. You will receive a gallery of approximately 50 images.
CHILDREN'S BIRTHDAY SESSION - $400
A birthday session can be scheduled at an outdoor location or in my home studio. Instead of heavily propped and busy sets, my sets are clean and simple, allowing me to focus on the expressions and personality of your child. I coordinate the colors of my set based on your preferences and theme. The sessions are one hour in length and for first birthday sessions, you may also do a cake smash; however, you provide the cake. You will receive a gallery of approximately 25 images. I offer a first birthday mini session option to all clients who have booked newborn sessions with me. (Scroll to bottom of the page for more details.)
LIFESTYLE NEWBORN SESSION - $750
The lifestyle newborn session is taken in the comfort of your own home or in my studio. The newborn phase goes by so quickly; I want to help you to remember all of the moments and emotions that matter the most. I do not use props or backdrops, but rather, focus on the emotion and connection of your expanding family. I want everyone to be relaxed on the day of the session, so I will spend some time getting to know you prior to the session. These sessions are best scheduled 10-20 days after the baby is born. You don't have to worry about your newborn being asleep during the session or if your toddlers will cooperate and sit still for their photos....the entire session is stress free because it is an interactive experience. The session lasts approximately 2 to 3 hours and includes all of the images. You will receive a gallery of approximately 55 images.
Classic Studio Newborn Session -$550
There is nothing more perfect and beautiful than a newborn baby. So, I like to keep things simple during my studio sessions and focus on that natural beauty of the newborn. To accomplish a natural look, I photograph on neutral backgrounds and instead of forcing babies into awkward or unnatural poses, the baby is guided and positioned into poses that are natural, safe, comfortable and free of props. If the baby does not want to be in a particular pose or position, I do not force the baby. Ultimately, I want to create classic images of your child that will stand the test of time.
This session is 1-3 hours in length, depending on the baby's disposition. The session includes photos of only the baby (no family members). The session includes 15 edited and enhanced images.
Studio Family Newborn Session -$650
I recognize that some moms love the idea of a lifestyle session, but are worried about the house being clean, siblings cooperating, whether or not her house will photograph well or has enough light and let's face it...the last thing a new mom needs is stress. So now, Mom can escape and relax in the comfort of my beautiful studio space while I photograph her and her family interacting with her baby. This session lasts 3-4 hours and you will get not only classic portraits of the baby, but also lifestyle images of the family interacting with the baby. You will not be photographed with a backdrop, but in natural scenarios, such as cuddling on the couch, on a gorgeous white bed, or sitting on an arm chair. All of the photos will be classic and timeless and life inspired poses. The session includes 25 fully edited images.
MOTHERHOOD SESSION - $400
A motherhood session is offered in the Spring only and makes the perfect gift for any mother. These sessions are 45 minutes in length and can be scheduled at a scenic outdoor location or in the comfort of your own home. These are my favorite sessions to offer because I personally know how hard it is to get out from behind our cameras and get IN the picture with our children. It is so important that you take the time to get in the frame with your children; it is something you will never regret doing and years from now, you and your children will be thankful to have these photos. My approach to the session is geared toward capturing mom with her children in a natural and organic way. I am going to capture you being a mom and doing what you do best, nurturing and loving your child, no matter what his/her mood is...so expect to cuddle and hug those kids..a lot! You will receive approximately 20 images.

The add ons must be purchased within 6 months of booking the newborn session. Contact me to discuss the pricing of these sessions and packages available.

I coordinate the colors of my set based on your preferences and theme. The sessions are 30 minutes in length. You may also do a cake smash; however, you provide the cake. You will receive a gallery of 10 images.

Minis are typically offered for the holidays, communions, and special occasions for children's portraits; I do not offer mini family sessions. The mini session is a 30 minute session and includes 5-10 images (depending on the type of mini session). Typically, there is more than one session scheduled on the date. These sessions tend to book up quickly. The cost is $250 TO $350.
