Pricing + FAQ

Hello! Landing on my site means you're at least semi-interested in having your beautiful self in front of my camera. I hope there is nothing holding you back. Don't let how you might perceive yourself, the struggle to find matching outfits, or your fear of not knowing how to act or pose get in the way. I am not THAT photographer. I believe beauty is found in the uniqueness of your connection with your loved ones. The way they look at and embrace you. The way their hand fits perfectly in yours. These are the photographs I live for. I am SO glad you’re here.

FAQ

Why hire a professional photographer?

This is not a question I frequently get but I found an article that I wanted to share on the subject. Check it out: http://blog.backdropexpress.com/why-you-should-hire-a-professional-photographer/

When should I book my session?

Maternity sessions should be booked asap for when you are 30-34 weeks pregnant when you have a good size bump!

Lifestyle Newborn sessions are best booked when baby is 1-14 days old, but can be booked up to 3 weeks old.

Fresh 48 sessions are booked based on delivery date. I will rely on you to notify me when you go into labor and/or notifying me as soon as baby is born. This will allow me time to find care for my 2 little ones. I do have back up photographers just in case I am sick or unavailable for any unforeseen circumstances.

What is a lifestyle newborn session and can't you just do a few posed shots?

Lifestyle newborn and traditional newborn studio session are very different. My approach is to capture your family with your new addition in the most authentic way possible. I also include portrait shots of just the baby, but after I wrap him or her up, I allow the baby to move, stretch, and settle in naturally. I do not provide props or outfits of any kind. There is absolutely nothing wrong with posed/traditional newborn shoots, I just do not provide that service at this time. Need an example? Click HERE for featured sessions! Not your style? Ask me for recommendations to my favorite posed newborn photographers!

Do you have a studio?

No, I don't. I am a lifestyle photographer so outdoor locations or in your home are where we will be shooting. No exceptions.

What should we wear?

I get this question a lot. My only requests? No logos, no matchy-matchy, no white t-shits tucked into blue jeans. I have put together a Pinterest board to give you some ideas. If all else fails, mom should pick what she is most comfortable in and everyone can coordinate around her. 

Do you offer any discounts, return client discounts, or offer mini-sessions?

I give small discounts when clients book more than one session at at time. Please contact me for a customized quote.

Once you become my client, you are now eligible for mini-sessions throughout the year. These session are 30 minutes long, perfect for those super cute milestones of baby, or a quick family shoot for holiday cards.

I give a 15% off first-responder & military discount. Thank you for your service!
