What can I expect from my session?

Fun!  I want your session to be laid back and fun.  If it’s a session for your kiddo(s) then please know there are no rules!  I like to get silly and crazy with the kids.  I tend to instigate a lot, so please know that in advance.  The more relaxed you and I are the more relaxed they will be.  The less they hear no, and THINK they are getting away with stuff, the happier and natural they tend to be.  They are free to wonder, and explore, and play with just about anything!

How long are your sessions?

Sessions usually run about 45 min. to an hour, depending upon what type it is.  If there are kiddo’s involved they dictate how long we shoot.  For newborn sessions they can range from 2-3 hours. (see newborn faq’s page)

How does it work?

We can do a consultation before your session to establish what you are looking for and if we are a good fit.  Not all personalities match.  If you like my work, and are ok with a little goofy and crazy, then we should be good to go.  From there we will book your session.  We shoot it either on location or in studio, and about a week later you’ll come back for proofing/ordering.  In the event you are far from the studio, let me know, and we’ll see about proofing on location.

Do you have a studio?

Yes, I have an in-home studio, with an off site plan in the works.

How many outfits should I bring?

You are welcome to bring as many outfits as you like.  We can pick and choose what will work best.  You should bring whatever works best for your personality.  If it’s a family session, coordinating is good, but matching is not necessary.  I love to see the individual personalities shine in family portraits, right down to the clothes!  If you have a kid into graphic tee’s, then by all means have him/her wear that!!  Ultimately it’s your call what you wear.

How much are your sessions? 

They are typically $125, but promo’s are run frequently, including no session fees.  Be sure to inquire about the current deals!

How much should I plan to spend?

I don’t have any minimum orders ever, and am low/no pressure.  I want you to only order what you love and will cherish!  Most of my clients budget around $500.  $300-700 is the  average range.  A la carte prices start at $25 and go to the high $300′s.  Collections start in the high $300′s.
