Invest in your memories.

The Why

Why should you invest in your photography?  These are tangible pieces of your memories that you will keep forever and pass down to your children, and perhaps their children.  I believe in telling your stories and preserving your moments so you can cherish them for decades.  

One of my favorite memories is going through old photos with my parents and grandparents, and listening to their stories of loved ones and learning our family's history.

Your photographs are your family's history and those moments deserve to be preserved so that one day when you are sitting with your grandchild one chilly Christmas Eve in front of the hearth, and they look up at you with their big, trusting eyes and say, "Grammie, what was mommy like when she was my age?", you can pull out your heirloom albums and take her on a trip down memory lane.

The Process

1) Book your session.  This will often include a quick phone call so we can get to know each other!  You don't want a stranger capturing these moments, do you?  

2) Have a great time at your session.  OF COURSE!

3) Choose your favorite images and favorite products at your Selection Session a couple of weeks later, where I will come to you.  There is no minimum purchase requirement and you only purchase what you love and absolutely must have.  I've curated heirloom quality products from some of the best labs across the country to ensure your albums and wall art stand the test of time.

4) I will personally deliver your purchased products so we can inspect them together (although I also inspect them upon delivery to me) and then we will laugh and hug (or not, if you aren't the hugging type, which is okay).

5) Enjoy your artwork for decades.  Perhaps even a century.

PORTRAITS & MATERNITY | $200

Custom portraiture begins with a $200 retainer to confirm your date and time, and allows us to start planning your custom portrait session together.  It does not include print products or digital files; instead, we will meet again after your session so you can view your images and choose which you would like to purchase.  There is no minimum purchase requirement, you only buy what you love.

My clients typically invest anywhere from $1,200 - $1,700 on custom art, such as canvases, heirloom prints, and albums, to display in their homes.

Let's get together and capture your memories.  

 

BOUDOIR | $750

Boudoir sessions are all about you! Your session retainer secures your date and time, as well as your hair and makeup, so you get the full boudie experience.  Each session is tailored to the individual woman being photographed and includes a pre-session wardrobe consultation to help achieve the vision.  

The retainer does not include print products or digital images; instead, we will meet again to view your gorgeous images in person where you will choose and purchase your favorites and how you'd like to display them, whether it's on a gorgeous archival canvas for your bedroom or our discreet Little Black Book for your night table. 

So what are you waiting for? Let's create a vision together!

ELOPEMENTS | $600

Just because you're not having the big party doesn't mean you don't deserve beautiful photographs!

Your elopement package includes up to two (2) hours of coverage for 10 people or less, including the bride and groom.  Additional coverage is $200 per hour.  Your session does not include digitals; instead, we will meet again to view your gorgeous elopement images and decide how you want to purchase and display them, whether that is in a beautiful, hand-made album or as wall art in your home!

So go buy that beautiful dress and put on that dapper tux, and let's go get married!
