I'm soo excited that you've made it this far on the Site! I really enjoy what I do - and it is my Hope that I can make your experience as smooth & memorable as possible! Below you will find General information about your Portrait Session. Things such as What to Expect, the Investment Fee, Booking Process, Frequently Asked Questions & Recommendations!
What To Expect
Having Portraits of yourself, Children or Family - makes for such a Great Investment. With my Portrait Sessions - I typically like to start with very few posed images. After about 10 minutes - We'll move to more Candid moments. As a Photographer who Photographs Children - it is very important that I get to show their true Authenticity in who they are and catch every piece of their Personality. Don't worry..if they are shy - I'll make sure they are comfortable, before I start getting their portraits (I mean, I am a complete stranger with a Camera in their face, LOL!) .
The Investment Fee is as follows:
Individual Portraits: $225
Children Portraits: $265
Family Portraits: $300
Each portrait session includes: 60min session, 35 Images delivered in an Online gallery, Location of choice, & print release.

FAQ’s & Recommendations
how long will my session last?
- Sessions are typically 60mins in legnth! Time does go fast (that’s how much fun we’ll have) - so arriving on time is very important. If there is nothing else scheduled after your Session - we can throw in a few extra minutes.
How long will it be before i get my images back?
- Your gallery will be delivered in an online gallery (Shootproof) within 14 days after your session.
should i get my makeup done?
- Yes! Yes! Yes! Although this is a frequently asked question - it is also a recommendation! Come prepared! Wardrobe & Makeup are the biggest essentials when it comes to getting your Portraits done. If you need recommendations for Make-up artists in the area, I can give those names during our follow up call.
what if my child(ren) starts acting up?
- trust me. They won’t! And if they do…don’t fuss at them. Kids are Kids. The more you try redirection or scolding the worse it gets. We want to have a great time. If you have more questions on what to do just in case - I’ll be more then happy to discuss over the phone.
What if the forecast is calling for bad weather?
- in the event the forecast is calling for bad weather ( i.e. Rain or Thunderstorms ) - you will receive an email indicating whether or not to cancel the session & reschedule - or to continue as scheduled. i will not cancel a session on a Wednesday for a Saturday Session.
