What should we wear????
  • For Families, choose one print you love, and pull the colors from that print for the rest of the family.*Mix in a solid top with accessories in similar colors and tones as the chosen print. You can even add in stripes or a plaid that coordinate with the print.*Hats, Belts, & Jewelry – Oh My! Accessories add great detail to any portrait session!*Try to steer clear of white, logos, and lettering.*Most importantly, wear something you are COMFORTABLE with! When you are comfortable, it will show!

How did you get into photography?

  • I have always loved photography, from my first Photography competition in 1st grade (a lovely shot of hot air balloons, just in case you were curious). I took classes all through high school and college as electives, and finally decided to take the plunge in 2008. After that, the business just started to grow and grow thanks to word of mouth-and here we are today!

What is the cost of a session with you?

Do you do weddings?

  • I fully believe in doing something and doing it right! For that reason I like to keep my focus on newborns and families. It is what I am good at and what I enjoy! If you would like though, I would love to suggest some wedding photographers to you! I may be able to provide engagement and/or bridal services for you, depending on the time of year.

Do you offer a “Baby Plan”?

  • Instead of offering a set baby plan, I allow all of my newborn clients to purchase optional “Mini Sessions” through out their baby’s first year, as well as a maternity session, if they wish. These are perfect for capturing those precious milestones! 45 minute sessions yielding 12 fully edited images via digital download – $300
When should I schedule a newborn session?
  • ASAP! Newborns make up for about 75% of my business, so as soon as you know you want to book, lets do it! Typically we will schedule your session for your due date or a week after, just to hold you a spot, as I only take a certain number of sessions a month. We will keep in touch and as soon as the little one arrives, we can firm up the exact date and time best for you!
What about maternity – when should we do those?
  • I always tell my clients, you want to be big enough to show off that great belly, but not SO big that you are going to be miserable on your feet! Typically somewhere around 30 weeks is usually a good time, but all women are different! Mini maternity sessions are offered to newborn clients only.

What kind of products do you offer?

  • My sessions are now “all inclusive”, which means the fee includes the session,  editing, an heirloom box containing prints and digital files on a USB. Additionally, I do offer Traditional Prints, Mounted Prints, Gallery Wrapped Canvases, Albums, Coffee Table Books, and Digital File/Proofing Combinations. Please contact me for detailed product pricing and information.
Do you have a referral program?
  •  Of course! I always appreciate your referrals and think there is no greater compliment than you taking the time to tell someone about your experience with me and help spread the word! As a way of saying THANKS, whenever you refer a friend or family member to me, I will include a free mounted 8X10 of your choice at your next session with me.
