Investing In Your Memories.
Before booking a session, review the pricing details below. Please respect that my photography fees are non-negotiable. When I first began this journey, I was very insecure. In order to gain the courage needed to put myself "out there" artistically I would (and could) shoot for very little or even free. Since then, my family, equipment, talent, services, client base, confidence, and needs have grown. I still feel like I shoot "for fun" but I also run a business and want to keep growing. For you (and for me) photography is an investment.
At this point, I feel like I can confidently say, I have arrived, "I'm worth it!"
(Maybe my voice was a little shaky there, but I said it!)
It may not be possible for everyone to consider the incredible amount of time, energy, thought, and talent it takes to create even one image, let alone an entire gallery of unique and personal images. (Just ask my husband how many nights I have stayed up past 2am proofing!) Though your session may last just one hour, there are hours of proofing that follow to ensure your memories are given the individualized attention and care they deserve. I am a very small business owner; as in I am a one-woman show. I also work full time as a teacher in addition to being a full time mommy to 2 energetic, lovable, and adorable tots. Your investment does not support a corporation or politician, but it does directly affect the quality of my family's life. Thanks to you, we are able to take a vacation, host epic birthday parties, participate in ballet or soccer, grocery shop without guilt, and even eat out once in a blue moon.
THANK YOU for your support, loyalty, and understanding.

Seasonal "MINI" Sessions:
In the spring and fall I offer 1-day "Mini" sessions, often partnering with the talented and stylish Bridget of BMae Photography. The fee for these sessions is $200. Up to 10 clients are scheduled in 30 minute sessions on the same day. Following the shoot, they receive a CD of 10-12 fully edited images with a copyright release. It's short & sweet, perfect for holiday cards, gifts, or updating frames at home or the office! These are perfect to get simply the "best of" a series of photos and can include a mix of group and individual shots. These are becoming quite popular for many photographers. They tend to book up FAST, so be sure to follow my Facebook fan page in order to book your session. (Spring sessions around Easter and Fall shoots anywhere from September to November).
*If you were unable to book a Spring or Fall Mini session rally the troops! If you know a "group" of interested friends or family members who would like photos done at the same time and place I can set up a personal "Mini" session experience for you. Please contact me if you have 5 groups or more to discuss booking options!
