“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.” -Dr. Seuss

 What is a photo session with me like? It's more like a playdate where both laughing and contemplation are embraced. "Cheese" is prohibited and perfection is discouraged. I simply ask you come ready for anything and leave the stress behind.

the experience

Find out

At every single portrait session we photograph, we strive to capture more than just how you look. Our goal is to tell a story ... the story of your family. Who you are today, right now, in this moment. 

Sessions take place on location, in a special spot where your family can be comfortable and have fun—think a favorite park, field, backyard, beach or anywhere you just love. Add in some favorite clothes, a special prop or two, and maybe even the family pet, and you’ve got a great session—and amazing pictures—you’ll love forever.

Well, not exactly . . . .
Basically, I schedule your sessions at the time of day when that particular location has the best light and for the time allotment you have chosen. Usually, that light will only last for the time of your session. So if you’re late to your session, it just means that I will have less time to take photos. Which means that I will take fewer photos and you will receive fewer photos in your gallery.

What happens if I’m late to my session?

My pricing for custom portrait sessions can be found on my investment page.  All wedding packages are individual so contact me for a custom quote!

about us

Whether you’re one of my portrait clients or couples getting married, I deliver your photos the same way: through an online password protected gallery. This viewing/delivery gallery allows you to mark your favorite images, share them on social media, download images, and order prints.

How do I order enlargements or digital files?

Your gallery will be available online for 30 days after your session date. After that time, your images will be archived off-site.

How long will my gallery be available?

about us

My turnaround time on regular prints is usually 2 weeks. Canvases will take at least 4 weeks. Albums will take 4-6 weeks.  If you would like your prints in a hurry, expedited shipping is available for an extra charge.

When will I receive my prints?

If you would like to order prints after your gallery has expired, I charge a $75 unarchiving fee to cover my time to retrieve your images and repost them for you. Once you have paid the fee, I will post your images into a gallery for you for 30 days. At that point, your unarchival fee becomes a print credit, credited toward print purchases made within the 30 days.

What if I want to order prints after 30 days?

What kind of gear do you shoot with?  

Yes, I carry insurance for my people and my equipment.

If I have to Cancel or change our date, will I get my money back?

Cash, check, Venmo, Apple Pay & Paypal. Why no Credit Cards? Because they charge me huge fees. So let's try one of the other ways first!
