About Your Session

Lifestyle Sessions

Portrait Sessions are relaxed and fun with either just an individual, family or large family. The goal is to capture your family or your own true essence and to make it a memorable experience for everyone. Whether it's Graduation Photos, portraits for a Sweet 16, Holiday Portraits, Headshots or a session just because, a portrait session with us is right for you!

Portrait sessions generally last between 60 to 90 minutes long whether on location or in the studio.


Engagement Sessions & Weddings

I am so excited that you are considering working with us for one of the most special days of your life. If you are newly engaged or looking to send out Save the Date announcements to your friends and loved ones, we'd love to work with you at creating a session that caters to you and your fiance's needs. Whether you want to tell the story of how you all met or even display through photos what makes you and your fiance' unique as a couple, we'd love to create that for you.

For your special day, we strive to work with our couples and to build a genuine relationship prior to your wedding day, so that on that day we are already well acquainted with each other and the work chemistry will flow that much better on your special day. From the time that we meet, to the time that you say I do, we will work together to make sure that we have a clear vision of what you expect on your day and to make sure that we capture every special moment that you envision for your day.


We accept all forms of payment with the exception of checks. 

All shoots require a deposit to hold the date on our calendar. Weddings must be paid in full 30 days in advance and all other shoots paid in full 3 days prior to the session. 

Weddings require a 30% deposit to be officially booked. All other shoots will require 20% deposit to be booked. 


We accept Square (Debit/Credit) for payments. 

All deposits are non-refundable and all payments are non-refundable after 5 days. 

If on a payment schedule, all payments received 5-10 days late will be assessed a $50 late fee to the next bill. All payments 11 or more days late will receive a $75 late fee added every 11 days. 


When Do I Receive My Pictures?

Wedding portraits take time and detail to edit. Please allow 14 business days to receive proofs. During high wedding season, expect proofs in 20-25 business days.

If you have purchased an album, you have 60 days after your event to choose your images. After the 60 days you must repurchase your album at full price to receive your album.

General portraits from all other shoots please allow 2 weeks to receive your images.


Timeliness And Attendance

Client should arrive to photoshoot, dressed (including hair and makeup) and ready to shoot.

Timeliness is imperative for the smooth execution of each session. Additional time will not be added to a session, in the event of tardiness.

A grace period of up to 15 minutes will be given for each session. After 15 minutes, clients will incur a charge of $15.  After 30 minutes, session will be cancelled and client will forfeit payment for the session. Also please keep in mind, if you are late to your session, you are forfeiting some of your session time. Your session time starts at the agreed upon time for your session, not when you arrive.
