Thank you for considering having me photograph your family. I'm so glad you found me :-)
My children and family sessions are delineated by the number of people involved. The Essential Session includes 1-3 people and is great for individuals or couples, for focusing on photos of "just the kids," or for families with their first child. The Family Session is for 4-5 people, and the Extended Family Sessions is for 6+ people, and both include unlimited combinations of groupings. Once you’ve selected the session type that meets your need, you get to choose from three package levels. Please note, session fees are separate from your package purchase and are due at the time of booking.
I feel strongly that you receive a tangible keepsake(s) from our session together, so all packages include choices of gorgeous print and product options. I believe we spend way too much time on our electronic devices, and I want to make sure you get to enjoy your photographs in a beautiful box on your coffee table, or an album you all can flip through together, or on the walls in your home. I choose only the very best vendors and products and have handpicked a selection of beautiful options for you. I hope you love them as much as I do! I am happy to chat about the different products or packages, once you have a chance to look this over. Recommended add-ons are listed at the bottom of the page as well.
Digital files are included in one of the Level 3 package options, and you are welcome to purchase digital files as an add-on to other packages. It is important to me that you know, even if you start with the best professionally edited files to make your own prints, canvases etc., you more often than not will receive products of inferior quality. Truly, much more goes into the making of an heirloom quality product. For any photographs you plan to have prominently displayed in your home, I encourage you to order through me. You also will benefit from additional retouching I do on any images you order as prints or other products, including all the images that go into your album. That said, digital files are great for using on your holiday card or for making 4x6 prints to send out to friends and relatives, or something like that, so by all means go ahead and purchase file(s) for that and print those yourself!
Have a look around and please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. I am happy to walk you through all the options and help you figure out a perfect package for your session.
