Photography Sessions

How Our Photo Sessions Work

The Session Consult
Before your session we do a consult over the phone where we go over ideas for your session, location, clothing, props, theme, etc. With every session I really try to bring aspects of you (and your family) into the theme of the session. I also want to get to know you a bit before your session, this is artwork we’re creating together with you as the subject.

The Session
There’s no time limit, there’s no outfit limit (unless you choose a mini studio session). I shoot until we feel like we’ve gotten everything we can. I do ask that you be on time for your session and come ready to start.

The Ordering Meeting
After the session I take your images, choose the best of the best, edit them and post 20-25 of the best images on your own online gallery. I try to have all sessions edited within two weeks of the session. Then we do an ordering meeting over the phone or skype to finalize any details about your order.

The session fee secures your appointment and covers the time and talent of the photographer. Session fees are non-refundable but can be transferable. Sessions canceled or rescheduled by the client within 24 hours of the session time will incur a $50 cancelation fee. Session fees are good for one year from payment date. All products including prints and additional digital images are purchased separately. For each print you purchase, you will receive complimentary low-resolution watermarked files for social media.

Other Things to Note

  • Your session fee is due at the time you book, payment plans are available.
  • We typically book one session a day, around sunrise or sunset, on the weekdays. There is an additional fee of $45 for weekend sessions.
