pricing for your custom photography

When you book your session, I'll send you information on how to prepare for your shoot along with a confirmation.  After the shoot, we'll arrange a gallery viewing of 25 photos, which will serve as the ordering session. If you choose, you can see a preview of your gallery within 3 days of your session on my blog and/or on Facebook. 

**Rush orders are available.

Sitting fees include the preparation for the session, equipment, travel to the location, image editing and retouching, previews of your gallery, and the ordering process. Every hour of shooting represents approximately 12 additional hours of work. Think of your session as an investment in artwork for your home. If your goal is to just get a couple of 5x7s to mail to Grandma--and there's nothing wrong with that--there are quicker and cheaper ways to do that. I know how hard it is to talk Dad into posing for this family picture, so let's make it count and do it right! :)

One-hour session for up to 5 people at the location of your choice. Please add $15 for each additional person. This session is perfect for families, young children, engagement, or maternity.

This lasts up to three hours in the comfort of your home.

This combines the portrait and newborn sessions--a perfect baby shower gift!

Finally, please don't copy, crop, or edit any of your preview images. Here's a little copyright information, for your info:

Be Careful - No Copyright Notice is Necessary on Images

Since October 31, 1988, works no longer need a copyright notice to have copyright protection. This means any image you find on a web page may be copyrighted. The traditional notice, such as "Copyright 1989 XZV Co." or " ©1989 XZV Co." is no longer required. Most web site content has been created since 1988, so beware.

Don't Copy, Modify or Display Images You Find

The Copyright act gives the copyright owner the exclusive right to reproduce or modify their work, and to exclude others from doing so. Copying includes copying or saving their image to your hard drive, or copying to other mediums, like scanning a photo from a book and turning it into a JPEG file.
Modifying a work, say by cropping, coloring, distorting, enlarging, etc. is not a way around this law. Creating a derivative work "or any other form in which a work may be recast, transformed or adapted" is an infringement.
If you take a copyrighted image without permission, and put it on a web page, you are violating the exclusive right of the copyright owner to display his work. (See 17 U.S.C.A. § 106).
