We offer bite sized sessions when you just a few photos or updates, or we can fill a collection and give you more experience and value. Our products are thoughtfully built based on what our clients most prefer and purchase frequently.

After it is all said and done, it is not uncommon for clients to upgrade and spend anywhere from $1550 - 2300 to have all the products they desire. 

A 20% non-refundable retainer is due at the time of booking to secure your date.

However, in some instances, the fee can be transferred to a different date with a two week notice.

Cancellation fees apply.  

Children's Mini Session of a 6 month old baby girl in studio
Understanding that sessions are both a scheduling and financial commitment, my goal is to offer as many people as possible the impact of a feel-good photo shoot experience. We do offer interest-free payment plans and I do my best to work with your schedule.

Creative Imagination Session - $595

Princess, dinosaur visiting, super hero or mermaid - What ever you can imagine, we can do ♥ One image will be planned and designed together. From there, we will shoot the session and the image will be edited to create the vision and presented on a 16x24 mounted print.  Enlargements, frames and museum quality canvases are available and is complete with a certificate of art authenticity! More custom art can be found HERE



I offer superior quality products, because you & your family are worth it. Investing in yourself is priceless. You will never forget how session day made you feel and how you feel long after that day is over. 

I make it as easy as possible for you to select your products:

• Framed, finished and ready to hang

• Stored in a keep sake box and frame yourself

• Pressed into an album

Every photo purchased in a pre-purchase collection comes with the matching, web-sized digital file for archiving.
