Fill out the inquiry form to get started on our adventure. A $100 retainer (with remaining balance due before or on the day of the session) and a signed digital contract are required to book your session. Payment is collected online via PayPal or Square.
I do! I feel it's really important to document your family’s story + memories. Capturing these moments, not only for ourselves, but for future generations to come, should never pose financial hardship. If you could benefit from a payment plan, please don’t hesitate to discuss options with me.
HECK YES! I love to travel and discover new places... but travel fees do apply for distances greater than 30 miles from zip code 95648.
Travel fees are calculated at 65.5 cents per mile (for 2023). Please contract me to discuss your location + timeline if you are interested in booking a session outside 30 miles from zip code 95648.
If your session takes place outside 30 miles of my zip code, please know that a travel fee can be split up, waived or reduced if you have a friends/family who would like to book a session on the same day/weekend, within the same area. Certain limits do apply. Please contact me for further details.
The Excursion Session lasts about an hour. However, if you would like to explore a longer adventure with me, the Expedition Session would be perfect! These sessions can range anywhere from 1-2 hours depending on what type of adventure you’re looking to take!
All sessions include access to Style + Select’s online styling tool. It’s completely up to you if you’d like to utilize it - but I highly recommend it! If you decide not to use it, the Welcome Guide will have tons of amazing suggestions to help you out!
FUN! But I also like to keep things real and organic. My main goal for all my sessions to capture your story just the way it is. So I encourage you to pick an activity and/or location to help keep you all moving and interacting. For couples with children, I encourage you to let your kids run around and have fun. Don’t be afraid to pick them up, tickle them, snuggle them up, toss them in the air, play games, tell jokes, have FUN with your family. These are all great ways for me to capture the emotion and true beauty of your family. Oh... and there's a good chance you'll get a little dirty and maybe a little wet... but I promise if you embrace the mess, you're images will turn out amazing!
Absolutely! These sessions are so fun because we can capture so much of your family's personality inside your home. And not to mention, you’ll be super comfortable and so will your kids. Which hopefully means: happy kids! For in-home sessions, I like to take on more of a documentary/day-in-the-life type of feel. PJ’s and pancakes? Snuggles in mom and dad’s bed? Bubble bath and story time? Slip ’n slide in the backyard? Anything goes here!
I put a lot of love into the editing process and spend a littttttle more time at my computer than I probably should. But I can’t help it... I love this process so much! Editing an image can bring it to life and it’s like another form of art for me. So I want to make sure your images are perfect and this takes time… usually about 3-4 weeks. However, I LOVE sending out sneak peeks, usually within 48 hours of your session, to keep you excited for what’s to come! Once your gallery is delivered, you’ll have access to digitally download your images or share your images through email and/or facebook. Images will be professionally edited + some will be offered in black + white (photographers discretion). All images will be in high resolution and you’ll also receive a personal print release. Additional products, such as prints, albums, canvases and more, can be purchased once your gallery has been delivered.
