My photography rates are not based on the length of the session, but rather the number of final edited images you desire. I will shoot until I feel like I have an adequate number of images to work with for the package you choose. I will take time to get to know you and your family, and help your kids be comfortable with me and my camera. This will help us capture true emotions and expression, and have fun! I will spend some time letting kids be kids, while chasing them around with my camera to capture them in their true element.
I will meet you on location. I will provide guidance for shooting locations and what to wear for your session. I typically schedule outdoor sessions about 2 hours before sunset, because the light is amazing and most flattering.

Unscripted School Sessions
$70 for first child, $15 for each additional child of the same family, preschool aged and up. You will receive 3 to 5 edited digital images of each child in a private on-line gallery, and each image will be edited in color and black and white. These sessions are done in my home; they are quick, relaxed sessions where I can chat with your child a bit and capture genuine expressions in a modern and classic image that will capture the essence of your kids that you can’t wait to share and display. Gone are the forced cheesy grimace grins, decades old blue back-drop, artificially lit school portraits. Isn’t it time for something better?
