Book A Session
Family Session: $450
" There is only one thing more precious than our time and that's who we spend it on."
Family sessions are all about documenting the love and connection your family has for one another. Family photos do not have to be a dreaded event. My goal is to capture the true essence of your family. Not everyone has to be looking or posed perfectly. I want to keep it enjoyable with laughter, love, fun and maybe some joke telling. In all the excitement we will capture a few of those traditional "everyone looking" poses.
$450.00 (for immediate family)
This includes one outfit. $100 for each additional outfit change. You will receive 30 professionally edited images. They will be uploaded to an online gallery that you can share, download and print to your heart's desire. I do recommend printing from a professional printing company. You have invested this much. Don't skimp on the prints for your home. Your entire cost is due the day of pictures.
Maternity Session: $300
" For you created my inmost being: you knit me together in my mother's womb." Psalm 139: 13
An expectant mother is one of the most radiant subjects to photograph. Let me help you share your story and create a lovely memory of this precious milestone in your life. It's my job to make you feel beautiful, confident and at ease during this session. The possibilities are endless in what we can create. If you have a specific style or custom design in mind we will make it happen. Everyone's story is different and thus the session will be tailored to your style, wants and needs.
$250.00 ( when booked with Newborn Photos)
Session includes 25 professionally edited images. An online gallery to download, share and print to your heart's desire. I do recommend you order your prints from a professional printing company. Your entire amount is due the day of pictures.
When to book:
For maternity photos I suggest between 29-35 weeks. The very last trimester of pregnancy can leave you uncomfortable and swollen (I know, I have been there). I want you as comfortable as possible.
About the Session:
Sessions include up to 2 outfit changes. $50 more for each additional outfit change. Sessions usually last one hour. Dad to be and siblings are more than welcome to join in the fun. Keep in mind this session is about the baby to be. If you are wanting additional images of siblings by themselves there will be an additional charge.
Newborn Session: $375-$450
" A baby is the beginning of all things- wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities."
Welcoming a new baby is a milestone worth celebrating. Newborn sessions are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. Your babies change and grow so much in that first year. I am here to freeze a few memories for you of how tiny their little features are and all the fresh newness that comes along with them.
$375.00 (session of your newborn ONLY)
$450.00( session of your newborn with family and or siblings)
You will receive 25 professionally edited images. An online gallery to share, download and print to your heart's desire.
When to book:
Clients often book a few months in advance to ensure availability, but that's not to say last minute spots won't be available. Babies need to be photographed within the first 14 days of birth. At this stage they are still very sleepy.
How it works- A "spot" is held the month you are due. Once baby arrives we will set up a date and time for pictures. It's best to notify me as soon as possible once the baby arrives.
About the session:
My goal is to create a one of a kind session to celebrate the arrival of your cherished little one. I have oodles and oodles of different props. From backdrops to buckets to hats/headbands. I have it all. You are more than welcome to just show up with nothing but your precious babe and I will handle all the frills. You can also bring a hat/headband or prop that you would like to in cooperate. Most clothes swallow up a newborn, for this reason I like to photograph them bare and use wraps and blankets to keep them modest. When you arrive the room will be VERY VERY warm. Since your baby will be unclothed I keep it warm so they are comfortable. So be sure you dress in layers. Sibling and Family photos will be done in the beginning. It's best if you are just doing sibling shots to have a family member come help or even come pick them up so we can ensure a safe, quiet environment for your newborn. Sessions usually last 2-4 hours. This gives us plenty of time to take breaks, nurse and cuddle back to sleep.
Children's Session: $275
"You are Fearfully & Wonderfully Made"
Children have this habit of growing up. Each day they are a little bigger and older than the day before. If you are like me you want to freeze a few moments in time. I would love to capture some memories of your precious children for you.
This is for a single child and or siblings . More than 4 children and there will be a $50 charge for each additional child. This includes up to 2 outfits. Additional outfit changes will be $50 per outfit. You will receive 25 professionally edited images. An online gallery to download, share and print to your heart's desire.
About the session:
Babies and Children up to 1 year can be photographed inside year round. Of course we can take it outside if the weather permits. This applies to your 3 month, 6 month and one year photos. They change so much during that first year it's important to capture those every changing milestones.
Sessions typically last one hour.
Oh our precious little people. They can make a photo session pure bliss or a tick difficult. A few things I have found that help is time of day and bribery... bribery works wonders. I promise my daughter and trip to the dollar store and she lights up!! You know your child more than anyone and everyone's routine is different. We will pick a time based on what works best for them and their schedule. Figure in eating times and nap times and we will find the perfect happy spot in their day. It is helpful to come prepared. Have a favorite snack handy and a drink. It never fails they get "hangry" and sometimes a little drink and fruit snack can do the trick. If they have a favorite blanket or stuffed animal bring it. We can use those to get smiles and even in cooperate them in the photos. Somehow I usually manage to make magic happen and get the shot!
" What feels like the end is often the beginning."
Seniors.. one of my very favorite subjects. These young people are ending one chapter and beginning another. This calls for some pictures don't you think!? It's my job to tell your story. If this includes your passion for sports, music or hobbies we will capture this for the world to see. This is time to focus on just you, beautiful you.
This includes up to 5 outfit changes. A $50 charge will be applied for each additional outfit. You will receive 50 professionally edited images. An online gallery to share, download and print to your desire. I do recommend you use a professional printing company. Locations will be discussed on booking. A travel fee will be applied to travel to large cities such as Kansas City and or Omaha.
Want to add a friend or family member?? Let's make it a party. There will be a $150.00 charge for each additional person added to your senior session.
When to Book:
The sooner the better. My senior schedule fills up very fast. It's best to get on my list 6 months to a year ahead to ensure a spot. We will decide then if summer or fall works best for your pictures. In the spring I will start scheduling my summer sessions and late summer schedule my fall sessions. I know these kids schedules are crazy busy. This way we are able to know a little better with school schedules which day will be best.
" I choose you. And I'll choose you, over and over and over. Without pause, without a doubt, in a heartbeat. I'll keep choosing you."
Another favorite of mine is couples. If you are just getting engaged or haven't had pictures since your Wedding and the years have slipped away then book a couples session. We can document your new engagement or celebrate your 5th, or 50th Wedding Anniversary. This session is about you and the love of your life. It's my goal to capture "you" as a couple. We will have fun, tell jokes, maybe even kiss ( well you two will). :) I am a lover of action shots capturing those intimate looks to one another or getting a genuine smile from a secret you just whispered in his ear.
The session will last about one hour. This is for one outfit, $50 charge for additional outfit changes. You will receive 25 professionally edited images. An online gallery to view, share, download and print to your desire.
Location will be discussed upon booking. We can do a lovely sunset session in a field of tall grass or take it to the City where you two had your first date!? The possibilities are endless.
