Once you place your order, your photos are sent to a professional print lab partner where it gets printed, packaged and shipped. t’s so important that your photos are printed using the highest standards to preserve the color, definition and overall quality!

04 When do you start your sessions?

I typically book 2-3 months out - depending on the time of year. In the fall, I am usually booked out 4-6 months (people love booking early for Christmas cards!), so my availability is limited. I can only book a number of sessions each month to ensure I don't overbook and burn out.

04 When do you start your sessions?

I begin all my sessions one hour prior to sunset or at the start of sunrise. This is known as "golden hour" and will provide the best diffused, golden lighting. Shooting at time before golden hour, would not be ideal because of the harsh lighting and shadows.

It all depends on what my clients are looking for specifically. My clients average investment is anywhere from $1000 - $2500. I do offer payment plans after the nonrefundable 50% retainer fee is paid, so clients are able to make small payments up until their session!
