the rule about pricing is you're never supposed to talk about pricing.

portrait session pricing

Before I had a child of my own, family and lifestyle sessions were some of my least favorite things to photograph. Now that I'm a parent I value photography more than ever. These sessions are so important. Having amazing professional imagery documenting your life together is a must!

Lifestyle sessions

sessions are best when you've spent the time creating the right atmosphere to take the best photos possible

Engagement sessions are best when done after a relaxing day. Coming home from a stressful day at work, scrambling to look picture-perfect, and running out the door to shoot at sunset does not provide the optimal experience for engagement photos. 

Your photos will be the absolute best when you've had a relaxing day beforehand, have spent quality time with your partner, and can take your time getting ready. I strongly encourage all of my clients to take a day off from work and go out and have a day-long date. Go see a movie, eat lunch somewhere, or go for a hike. Whatever it is you love to do together, this is a great way to set the stage for the happiest, most romantic, and fun engagement session possible. If you've been stressed out all day at work or fighting with each other about wedding details all day, I can guarantee the quality of your photos will not reflect you at your best. 

I want you to look back at your engagement photos as a day where you had a great time, made wonderful memories and reconnected throughout the stress of everyday life and wedding planning. Pick a spot that means something to you for your engagement photos and after a long day together you'll have a great time laughing while I document it!

1. How much is the retainer?

Here are some frequently asked questions about Portrait sessions:

Sessions fees are paid in full to reserve your date. 

2. How do I book?

If you're ready to book, just shoot me an email to see if your date is available and then we can sign the contract and you can pay the retainer. The retainer payment and contract signing is all taken care of digitally online. 

3. Can we meet before I book?

I live in an extremely remote part of the mountains in Colorado. The nearest grocery store is 90 miles away from me! That can make it a bit difficult for me to meet all of my clients in-person. However, I'm happy to ease your fears and meet on Skype, Facetime or do a phone call before you book. 

4. What is your availability like?

It is best to book in advance due to my travel schedule! Clients typically book sessions anywhere from 3-6 months ahead of their session date. Depending on my schedule, I may have limited last-minute availability as well.

5. How long do I have to order prints afterward?

Your online gallery is available for 1 year after your session date. After that year, your gallery will be archived, so it's best to order before the deadline.

6. How do the print credits work?

As soon as your photos are delivered, you will also receive a one time discount code for your print credit. You may still be subject to tax and shipping fees. 

7. What are the best outfits to wear for family photos?

I recommend not matching, but sticking to a color family with different family members wearing different solid colors or prints that also include those colors. Wear clothing that is comfortable, especailly for children. If you are tugging, pulling and constantly adjusting your clothes - that's a sign you're feeling less confident in that outfit and it will show subtly in photos. 

8. Do you offer prints and albums?

I do! However, you get the digital files included in your pricing so you can always order prints and albums on your own. Check out my information on printing to get more details. 

9. Are the digital files included?

Yes! Once your session is done I cull through your photos and get rid of duplicates, test shots for lighting and then I edit and process the rest for you. 

10. Do you edit the photos?

I sure do! I spend as much time as I do shooting, doing the editing of your photos. I edit them to fix things like exposure, lighting, and any retouching to fix things that are temporary (like blemishes). 

11. Do you provide black and white photos?

I love black and white photos, so I provide a copy of all your photos in both color and black and white. That way you don't have to choose. 

12. What about locations?

If you're doing a lifestyle session the location will be in your own home. Please do not worry about tidying up and making everything "perfect." The most important thing for me to have is great window light, so open up the blinds and curtains and be ready to let it shine in! For outdoor sessions we will pick a location that has easy access in addition to great lighting. If you have something in mind, please let me know!
