Session Information

Each portrait session is uniquely designed to my clients desires and needs. I feel it is important to get to know each of my clients personally and make the experience fun, relaxed, and enjoyable. Prior to booking our session, we will meet for a complimentary consultation. At the consultation, we'll plan your perfect session; discuss what to wear, decide on a location, and you will have the opportunity to see some samples of my products. I've partnered with some of the best professional labs in the country to offer my clients the highest quality heirloom products that you'd be proud to display in your home.


The following prices reflect my artistic time and talent only; digital products and prints are not included in this session fee. Clients typically invest between $400 and $800 in their photos. Payment plans may also be arranged. There is no minimum purchase required at the ordering session; you only purchase the photos and product that you love! 

A 50% non-refundable retainer fee is required to reserve your date/time, which is applied toward your session. I accept all major credit cards, check, or cash.
