the investment

everything you need to know about booking a session with me

first things first.

when you are ready to book, you will choose a session type and we will choose a date that will work best for you. a retainer/creative fee is due at the time of booking to secure your day/time slot.


I offer four different session types. Your choice will depend on the focus for the session, whether it is your little family, a child's milestone, welcoming a new baby home, your kiddos or your extended family. EACH SESSION YIELDS A DIFFERENT AMOUNT OF IMAGES AND THE AMOUNT OF SHOOTING TIME DEPENDS ON THE SESSION YOU CHOOSE. The session types & creative fees are listed below.





Once your session is complete, you have two portrait collections to choose from. I offer two collections which include all the digital files from your gallery... so there is no need to choose. Collections start at $675. Please inquire via email for a detailed breakdown of pricing info.
