Upon booking a deposit of $250 is required, these funds will be used as a credit toward your portrait purchase. The sitting fee is due at the time of actual shoot. I look forward to working with you and your family!

Classic Family Sitting

Sittings start at $299 for up to four people (add $35 for each additional participant). I will travel to a location of your choice and stay for as long as it takes to get shots that you will love. The sitting fee includes my time and talent, all post-production of the photos, and hosting an online album of your proofs.

Before & After Package

This package is specifically designed for expecting Moms. We will do a maternity shoot near the end of your pregnancy and then a newborn session with your infant. Newborns are best photographed within the first 10-12 days. These photos are a special treasure--in just a few months you will barely be able to remember that your little one was ever so small and new. The early days with a newborn are hectic and require flexible scheduling, but you will be so glad that you made time when you see the images. This package is $495 and includes the time and talent of the photographer for two professional photo sittings, post production time, hosting two online proof slideshows, and a gift print up to 11x16. A great shower gift!

The Time Flies Package

The first year of a child's life is a time of mind-boggling changes! Capture them all with this package created for this special time. I will do three sittings with your child during their first year, whenever you choose--newborn, six months, one year, or anytime in between, for $699 (payable in full at the time of the first shoot). This package includes a $50 credit* toward prints for each sitting.

Tales of One Year

Think of this package as commissioning an artist to record a year in your child's life. This all-inclusive package ensures that you will have fantastic photos of your growing child for a full year. It includes up to 4 in-home/on location sittings with your child (can include a maternity shoot). After each session you will receive one 11x16 gift print with your order. At the end of the year you can choose up to 30 photos to be included in a hard back keepsake book to treasure for all time. Recommended during the first or second year of a child's life--but a wonderful gift anytime. All for $1649 (over $2400 if purchased a la carte).
