2020 PORTRAIT SESSION PRICING

THE COLLECTIONS

Book your session

Thank you for your interest in choosing me to document your family!  I believe that photographs capture feelings, not just memories.  I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets, in finding joy in the mundane, and the pure love that exists in families.

I strive to create images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. Whenever I pick up my camera, my goal is to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. 

GET TO KNOW THE PHOTOGRAPHER

welcome

Before you choose to book a session, I want to make sure that my style of photography is what you're looking for.  Be sure to check out my Portrait Portfolio to get a feel for my work.

If you love what you see, you can check my availability on my calendar on the Portrait Contact Page.  

Next, fill out the contact form. I usually reply within 24 hours.  

NICE TO MEET YOU

Once we get your date figured out and reserved, I'll connect to start chatting about possible locations for your session. For a mini session, we will shoot in just one spot, for a full Portrait session we can shoot in two locations, but they must be within 1 sq. mile of each other. 

I always shoot in the hour before sunset when the light is golden and dreamy.  If you chose a place you haven't been before, it might be helpful to visit during the time our session will take place. That way you have an idea of the light, crowds, closing time, etc! If you're not sure about where you would like to take your photos but you have a general idea of the look you would like, just let me know because I would be happy to recommend a few locations based on your aesthetic!

LOCATION

Up on booking, I send all of my clients the MDP Style Guide.  This is a digital magazine that will help you choose what to wear!  I go deep into details and about things like dressing to fit your location, which colors and styles work best with my photography to give dreamy images, and I even give tons of recommendations of where to shop!

This part always seems to be the most stressful for mom, but I try to take out as much guess work as I can.

waRDROBE STYLING

On the morning of your session, I'll connect to make sure the weather still looks like it's going to corporate. We'll exchange numbers and finalize our meeting location. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early (more if you're dressing kids at the location).  Also, make sure the kids have had a good nap and are fed!

I usually bring some "bribery" snacks, but if you'd prefer, please bring your own.


The SEssion

I deliver ALL of the images from your session via an online gallery typically within 3-4 weeks of the shoot date

This gallery will allow you to share your favorites with family, order prints and even download images to share on social media. 
I recommend downloading your images and saving them on an external hard-drive for safe keeping.

If you purchased the Memory Collection (mini session), you will only be able to download 25 images from your gallery. If you'd like, you will have the opportunity to purchase other prints directly from me, or upgrade your session.  Once an upgrade invoice is paid, you will be able to download the full gallery.

DELIVERY

I am proud to offer my clients a variety of ways to turn their images into keepsakes. From your gallery, you can order wall-mounted canvas prints to decorate your home, fine art prints (tat cost) or a beautiful handmade legacy album. 

And I offer a lifetime guarantee on all our products so you never have to worry about the quality of your investments fading over time! What a special way to remember this season of life you’re in!

the keepsake collection

When picking outfits I recommend keeping in mind the word “complement” rather than “match.” For example, if Dad is wearing a blue and pink pastel plaid shirt, Mom may want to choose a long, soft blue dress. It can also be a great idea to choose “color-families,” such as pastels or jewel tones.

LOCATION

The sooner the better! Our weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall, so the sooner you reach out to us, the more likely you are to get your desired date!  

To reserve your date, we'll need a contract as well as a deposit. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let us know! 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?

Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. Heck, we take photos for a living and we even feel like a deer in the headlights when we're in front of the camera. 

You're going to feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and we coach you through images, we think you'll find that being photographed can actually be fun. And don't worry about your kids. We're well versed in capturing even the busiest of little ones. 

We're Awkward and my kids don't sit still.

No one wants to look like a wet dog in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, we'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule.
Often, when we're scheduling our initial portrait session date, if it works for our calendars, we'll actually set up both a main date and a rain date just to make sure we don't have to postpone your session for very long if the weather is bad on the original date. 

WHAT IF IT RAINS?

Within a few weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images. 

The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints, canvases and other keepsakes as easy as turning on a Roomba to clean your floors. No worrying about tricky things like color correction, DPI and image format.
