Portrait Session Pricing

Session retainer Fee ~ $300

Every booking starts with the session fee, which is your only up-front cost prior to seeing your images. The session fee is paid when you book your session, and covers my time, talent and equipment, all the costs of planning and preparing for your session, and the session time itself, and all the editing that follows to create a finished proofing gallery full of beautiful images for you to choose from.

I do not place a time limit on your session; my focus is on creating beautiful images to fill your gallery. A typical family session usually takes around 45 -60 minutes; sessions with small children may be shorter or longer depending on their attention spans.


choose your finished products

Two weeks after your session, it's Gallery Day!

You will receive a link to your proofing gallery full of all the final, beautifully-edited images we created during our session together.

With your proofing gallery in front of you, you may then choose exactly the digital and/or print products you would like to purchase, and order those directly from your proofing gallery.

I also offer my clients complimentary in-person ordering services, for those who would like professional guidance designing and ordering prints, wall art, and more. I can come to your home with size and paper finish samples so that you can visualize exactly what you want to order for your home, and help you with the design and ordering process from start to finish.

Digital image collections start at $300.
