Each all-inclusive package is a little different, but some things are true for every session

I see myself as a story-catcher. Every family has a story and I can’t wait to tell yours!

one

My job is to create a context for your connection. Life is messy and hard but there are countless tender, transcendent moments we don’t see in all the hurry. I want to show you those moments. I want your kids to see the moments they won’t remember when they’re grown!

1. A chance to hit pause & press into your people

two

Prior to your film session we'll set up a phone call or Zoom. It’s a chance for me to confirm your goals and answer any questions. Two weeks before your scheduled session, I’ll send over a pdf with tips on preparing. As our session gets closer, I’ll be on-hand for wardrobe advice. You’ll also have access to a personalized wardrobe styling/shopping site I subscribe to. 

2. A personalized, guided process

three

See your story as it deserves to be told…with sound and movement. All films are set to hand-selected, licensed music with professional post-production video editing and color grading to enhance everything about your story. All my packages include a film because I’m convinced you need one. 

3. A tender, unscripted family film

We’re not going for “the shot” and we won’t try for something you’re not. Let's just be. All packages include a generous photo gallery. If I like an image you get it and you get them ALL for one all-inclusive price. Why should it live on my hard drive and not in your heart? After all, they’re your moments!

4. A gallery of sincere, emotive
family photos 

five

I keep your experience streamlined and simple…no in-person sales or print credits. You get your photo and video files delivered by digital download. I go even further. Because I don’t believe in charging you for something twice, your print store has no mark-ups. That’s right! I don’t make a dime off the products you purchase. Prints, canvases, and framed art are ordered through your gallery, fulfilled by my preferred professional lab and shipped direct to your home.

5. Digital downloads & an online print store with no markups

six

I feel strongly that your images should be printed so that generations from now they can be enjoyed. For an additional $300 I’ll create a custom linen photo album for you and have it delivered to your home. 

6. An optional linen keepsake photo album

Here are some questions you might have and answers that should help…

FAMILY FILMS MAY BE NEW TO YOU!

why do films cost so much more?

A film can take anywhere from 20-30hrs (sometimes longer) to create! Video requires a great deal of time editing, much more time than it takes for photos. There's also the cost ($250) to license a music soundtrack. While it might seem expensive, I promise your film's worth will only increase in value each year as you rewatch the memories of your life today.

I'm nervous about how we'll appear on video.

I understand! I've filmed and photographed hundreds of parents who felt the same way. I see one of my most important roles as creating a space for you and your family members to feel at ease and most authentically you. As a mom, I easily identify with the client who wants to look and feel their best. But you know what?!....your people love you just as you are.  The gift you're giving your children isn't a perfected version of you. You're giving them a visual keepsake of the incredible parent they already have in you. 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO SCHEDULE MY SESSION?

Outdoor family sessions are typically scheduled from mid-April to mid-Dec. At-home, Day in Your Life films, First Day and newborn sessions are scheduled year-round. The best time to photograph newborns is 2-6 weeks after birth when they’re the sleepiest but I’m happy to schedule well beyond that window! If your considering a maternity mini add-on, I recommend 32-36 weeks gestation for a first time mom and 30-34 weeks for moms who've been pregnant before. 

For any session, I’m usually booking 2-4 months in advance. For newborns that means the best time to contact me is a few months before your due date!

CAN I BOOK YOU FOR PHOTOS ONLY?

I'm sorry, no. I want to tell your fuller story and films are something I can uniquely offer my clients. I hope you'll give one a try but am happy to refer to other local photographers if you decide they aren't for you!

ANY ADVICE ON PREPARING FOR OUR SESSION and what to wear?

HOW DO I SEE MY IMAGES AND FILM AFTER THE SESSION?

I’ll email a link to your private photo gallery 1-2 weeks after our session. You can order prints, download and even share to social media direct from there! A film can take 10-20 hours to edit depending on the length and will arrive 2-3 weeks later.

HOW DO I ORDER PRINTS? DO YOU CHARGE EXTRA FOR PRINTS?

For the truest color and longest-lasting prints, I recommend ordering your session prints direct through your gallery. Your order is fulfilled by my preferred professional lab, at no markup (i.e. I make no profit from your prints). Pro labs print on higher quality printers and paper. If you’d prefer to spend a little less on lesser quality prints, then I recommend uploading your images to MPix – the best consumer print lab I’ve found. Just promise me you won't walk your files into a Walgreens or Costco! Oh the horror! ;-)

HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK?

I ask for a $250 deposit to hold your date and will invoice the balance after you’ve received your gallery and film. I accept checks and all major credit cards.

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

I sure do! I recognize that photos + film are an investment and am happy to work with you to come up with a reasonable payment plan so you can budget it out. 

DO YOU OFFER GIFT CERTIFICATES?

Yes! I include a hand-crafted nest necklace with every purchase.
