FAMILY + PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
PLANNING & PRICING GUIDE
Families and couples will forever be some of my favorite things to photograph! Whether it's new pups, baby bumps, toothless grins, anniversaries, or with the grandparents, it's all important and memorable, and I am here for it! I especially love families who are just starting out or whose journey has been long--whatever that looks like, it's always a beautiful story to tell. I love to make portrait sessions a game with little kiddos (or any that are less than enthused about the camera) and watch as the moments unfold! They usually leave telling me it was a lot more fun than they thought it would be!
Perfect for families of up to 6, maternity, kiddos, and seniors who aren't really into making a big deal.

How does processing sessions work?
I photograph portrait sessions on Monday or Tuesday evenings. Standard sessions are up to one hour long, up to two outfits, and one location. Within two weeks of your session, you'll receive a watermarked gallery of unedited proofs. The standard session comes with 20 images, although more can be added for an extra fee. Once you choose which 20 images you want, I'll get to work on the editing, and you'll get your finished images back within 2 weeks of finalizing your selections.
What is your style?
I get this question a lot, and it's always hard to answer because I don't know what word or phrase sums it up. I will tell you, there are two things that people tell me drew them to my work--the natural colors and the unposed look of my clients. And those are the exact things I want from my work, so it's so validating to hear that I succeeded in showing that! That unposed look--that comes from how I guide my clients...which is basically making them do a bunch of ridiculous stuff (that naturally gets the look I'm going for without actually posing them) and laughing our butts off (which brings out my clients' real personalities)! We have fun, but we get the job done without altering the personalities of the people there.
How do I pay you?
I deliver all contracts and invoices electronically. Your invoice allows you to pay with Paypal or credit card, but I can also process credit cards over the phone or take check if we meet in person.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! 25% is due at the time of booking to retain your place on my calendar and is non-refundable. The remaining balance can be paid the day of the session.
What if we have to reschedule?
Sometimes weather or emergencies get in the way. Your retainer can be applied to any other date I have available as long as I have 48 hours notice.
Do you offer prints?
Definitely! I even offer complimentary wall-gallery design services! My professional lab is based right in Iowa because I love supporting other local businesses, and their work is beautiful! I'm happy to show you samples! And prints are available for purchase right from your gallery!
