Services & Investment
I am open to discussing all types of photography, but below are my specialties, and what a session will entail.
Nothing is as empowering and emotional as the birth of your baby - I experienced a large number of obstacles on my way to my sweet children, so I want to help you remember your own journey. Let's work together to capture every special moment of your experience. I encourage you to read through and answer my Birth Photography Questionnaire, and we can work together to get the photos you want of your special event!
Birth sessions are $650. That includes the following:
My time on-call two weeks before and after your due date. (I will do my best to accommodate deliveries earlier and later than that.)
Photos of your birth (from active labor through up to two hours after birth).
All full-resolution digital images and a slideshow of your birth on DVD, set to your choice of song.
A password-protected gallery of your images, if you so desire. These are generally lower resolution, and better for sharing online.
We do require a $200 deposit for birth photography. If I am not able to attend the birth for any reason, this can either be refunded or used toward either a "Fresh-48" session in the hospital 48 hours after your birth, or a 2-hour newborn session at a discounted rate. The remainder is due after the birth of your baby/babies.
You may want to ask your medical professional if they will allow a photographer at a C-section in addition to your support individual.
Newborn Lifestyle Session
Newborns are so delicate and need lots of love; why take your newborn out of the house unless you have to do so? I will come to your house and take photos of your family in a photojournalistic style called newborn lifestyle photography, capturing natural moments and some posed shots. I will use natural light whenever possible to capture your growing family, so as not to startle your baby with a flash. We try to incorporate photos in your special living areas when possible, such as the nursery, master bedroom, and family room, as well as outdoors. We can do poses, as well, upon request, and I love incorporating your special props and items.
1 hr sessions are $150, including digital files. I usually say that you will receive the digital files for 15 - 30 images, but it is often more.
2 hr sessions are $225, including digital files. I estimate 35 - 50 digital files will be sent to you, but (again) it is often more.
I would love to meet your family! We will go on-location for up to 45-minutes. I recommend outdoor photos, but we can also make your home or other indoor space work. This fee is for immediate family only.
45-min sessions are $115, including digital files. You will receive 20+ images via an online gallery for download.
Child & Portrait Session
Do you need milestone photos for your child's birthday, maternity photos, breastfeeding photos, etc.? This 30-minute "miniature" portrait session is perfect for you. We will go on-location to your home or desired locale to take these photos.
30-min sessions are $85, including digital files. I estimate you will receive 15+ images, but it usually is more.
Your personal, religious, charity, and corporate event deserves to be captured in an artistic, elegant manner. I again use natural lighting if at all possible (although I do incorporate flash for group photos) to help blend in to your event. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss event times, as I do not include evening hours in my online booking calendar. References are available upon request.
Events are $150 for two hours, $300 for four hours, etc. I am happy to accommodate other time frames and ranges, and fees will be adjusted accordingly. Again, you will receive all digital files to your event included in the price.
Let me help you fill out your website, "About Me" page of your book, business card, or other with a professional headshot. We can go to your office, home, or other desired location. I can employ flash where needed and appropriate, although I do find natural lighting to usually still be softer.
Professional Headshots are $65 for a 20 - 30 minute session. I estimate 10+ images, and you will receive all digital files.
Your images will be delivered via a secure album via the internet for your download. DVDs are available at an extra $30.
