Lifestyle and family portrait sessions are 1.5 – 2 hours and mini sessions are 25 minutes.
Mini Sessions are typically offered twice a year, spring and fall – as well as a few surprise pop up dates depending on the year’s travel schedule. I am also always happy to offer private mini-session dates for families who arrange 3 to 5 other families together for mini sessions to be done on the same day – such a fun way to get together with your friends!
Senior Sessions may be booked anytime throughout the year. I treat this similar to a lifestyle session and enjoy chatting with the senior before hand to see what they envisioned for their session. From there we can collaborate in planning the shoot to make it a fun and memorable day.
Day in the Life Sessions have recently become popular to truly capture the essence of the joy in daily life. This allows me to spend time with you and your family for 5 – 6 hours to capture you in your element…from bathing the kiddos, to making pancakes with the kids, or walking to the park with the dog. For more information about coordinating your own Day in the Life session please contact me directly to discuss the fun details.
In an effort to keep things simple and seeing what has worked best for clients, all session costs include digital negatives. Individual a la carte options such as prints and albums of course may be added on.

Viewing gallery will be emailed and available to you two to three weeks after the session date. The online gallery will be password protected and will be easy to browse through proofs, share the link with family and friends and make any print orders online.
It is important to me that everyone is happy before, during and after the shoot. I like to create images that capture you and your loved ones in your element – hanging out, laughing, hugging. That being said, I also like to deliver some traditional photos within your gallery as well – you know the ones I’m talking about – everyone squeeze in, look at the camera and smile! My shoots typically start with us talking, easing any worries anyone has and playing the with kids a bit allowing them to feel comfortable with me. I often recommend a location we can walk around and shoot as we go. Many of my clients have multiple young children and will apologize if any of their kids have a melt down or isn’t textbook cooperative – please don’t worry about it, I understand its tough for children to stay focused the entire time and it is only natural for them to explore and push boundaries. I truly believe kids feed off their parents’ energy and find it best to relax and go with the flow. I’m a big advocate of taking breaks as needed to let the kids just run around…and trust me some of the funniest and most memorable moments often comes from kids being kids. If you have a furry member(s) of the family, please do feel free to bring them along!
Newborn bookings are usually shot in the comfort of your home. I keep the session simple and capture images of you and your family in a relaxed setting – just your family, the newest little love and all the joy in the world. We will make room for a variety of moments such as, a complete family, just baby, siblings and of course pets are welcome too, they are family after all!
