How can I book a session? Fill out the form below to inquire about your date. Any session request during the wedding season (April-Oct) will be booked for a Sunday. Appointments are guaranteed upon completion of a signed contract and receipt of payment.

What is a mini-session? Each appointment will be 20 mins of photography service starting at $250+ (pricing will vary) for up to 6 people. If your group is bigger you would need to book a full one-hour session since 20 minutes is not enough time.

Where is the location? This factor will all depend on the season and set for the shoot. Most sessions will happen at a park, public area, and or studio/venue space that I have rented for the day to create these sessions. Sessions at farms, most require visiting guests to pay them admission directly and that fee is not included in the session price. Public areas such as Botanical Gardens, Manors, and State parks are great locations for big groups but many require a permit ($$$) and need to adhere to their photography policies to shoot there. Sessions requesting locations that require permits will be a higher fee.

How does the session work? After we’ve arrived at the location, done our pleasantries, and picked a spot for photos the session will start. Mini sessions are short and go quickly, which means it’s a little faster-paced than a typical one-hour session. I will make it fun and try to get your natural self with easy poses that work for everyone.

During the session, we are a team. We will chase some beautiful light to bring out those big smiles and being silly is encouraged. Depending on the season and or setup you can expect 5-8 different poses to be included in your session and gallery. After your session, the images are edited with my photography aesthetic. If you are not familiar with my photography please look at my short videos below and view my gallery before booking.

Can I schedule more time? Yes, a one-hour session starts at $400 (up to 12 people).

How long will it take to get my photos? Your images are sent to your email of choice 3 weeks after your session date.

How many photos do I receive? Most sessions will have approx 50-100 proofs in their gallery.

Mini-session clients will receive a set amount of high res digital downloads included in their price. Clients that choose a one-hour session will receive (50) high-res digital downloads included in their price.

(Mini-session inclusions may vary from season to season. Promotions are subject to change)

Can I purchase more digitals and how? All printables and options to purchase more digital files are available in your gallery shop once your gallery is completed and sent.
