Family & Maternity Investment Guide


I am so excited for this opportunity to document your family!

Below is a bit more information on the different sessions I offer as well as some great sessin location options!

All my pricing is all-inclusive, digitals and sales tax are already included :)

Feel free to reach out via email if you have any additional questions!

What to Expect.

Lifestyle sessions are all about you and your family's connection and the love that you share. During your session, I will try and capture your family in a way that feels natural and fun with a mix of candid and posed images.

We know that kiddos do not have the longest attention spans in the world so trying to get them to smile at the camera for an hour would most likely result in a meltdown. Not even adults like to cheese at the camera for that long! We always start out with the more traditional “smile at the camera” images and then move into the more candid and playful directions to help keep everyone smiling and capture your family’s personality!

How do we book?

A signed contract and %50 of your collection price will lock in your date. The remainder is due 3 days prior to your session.

What about the weather?

I will be in touch the week of your session as we keep an eye on the weather together. If the chance of rain gets too high we will work together to find another day for your session. I do not reschedule for clouds.

When do sessions take place?

To get that lovely golden soft light sessions take place at either sunrise or sunset. In the late fall and winter, we only do sunset sessions since it is usually too cold in the early morning to be comfortable.

Where should we take our photos?

Right above this FAQ is a list of amazing session locations. If you are stuck between a few, send me an email and I will send you galleries from those locations so you can get a better idea of how they look!

What if my kid is sick?

Things happen! All sessions get one free reschedule date (not counting weather-related reschedules). Additional reschedules will result in a $50 fee.

Do you only take candids?

I try and get a good mix of candids and posed photos. Sometimes that’s tricky with little ones but I will always do my best to get some of everyone smiling!

How long until we receive our gallery?

You will receive your full gallery 1-2 weeks after your session.

Can we bring out pet?

Pets are family too! You can absolutely bring your furry friend but I highly recommend bringing someone to help wrangle your pup when they are not having their photo taken.

What is a family unit?

Your family unit is your immediate nuclear family. Collection 1 is for your immediate family only. Collection 2 includes 3 family units. For example: you, your partner, and your children (unit 1), Gma and Gpa (unit 2 units), and your sister and her partner and children (unit 3).
