I am so excited that you are interested in choosing me to document your family! I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together.
I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
For as long as I can remember I have been carrying a camera with me. My favorite was the camera that fit inside and Altoid can. The limited amount of images on a roll of film forced me to really observe the beauty in the world. Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them.

I do things a bit differently then other photographers in the area. About 2 weeks after your session, I send a gallery with hand-edited pictures. It will start with a slideshow of your pictures and then the option to choose your package. You will have two weeks to make your selections.

Bring your images to life with print
I’m big believer that images aren’t meant to solely exist in a digital space. One day, most likely, Instagram will be gone, your phone will be replaced and images that you can physically hold in your hand will be the best way to remember those precious moments I captured.
Think about this fact: fifteen years ago, if I had delivered you digital images, they would have been on a floppy disk. With the fast updates to technology, you would have no way to access those images today. Even the online galleries I deliver will eventually fade away.
But prints? Those last. I bet your family still has images from your grandparents (maybe even great grandparents.) And that was likely from a time period when cameras were expensive and prints were harder to come by.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
While turnaround times can vary by season, I aim to deliver all images within two weeks of your session.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?
While I don’t guarantee an exact number of images, I will make sure I capture your family thoroughly. Most families should expect to receive at least 25 edited images following their session.
DO I OWN THE RIGHTS TO THE IMAGES?
By default, the creators of images always own the rights to the images. However I’ll give you a release to use, print and share your images. The only thing you won’t be able to do is sell your image as a stock photo. I won’t do this either without your written permission.
WILL YOU RETOUCH OUR IMAGES?
I do light retouching on all of our images. This means that if there are any glaring objects that should be removed (such as a bump from the tumble your toddler took that morning,) I’ll remove it. Larger edits (such as removing tan lines, wrinkles, etc) require more time and would require a retouch fee.
HOW LONG WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO THE IMAGES?
I guarantee that your images will remain in an online gallery for two weeks. While your galleries may stay up longer than that, I cannot guarantee it. Once your galleries have been delivered, I highly recommend downloading all high resolution images to several devices. Consider investing in a portable, waterproof external hard drive.
CAN I PRINT THE IMAGES ON MY OWN?
Yes, you are welcome to print the images on your own. If you do this, I recommend making sure that the printer does not color correct the images (many automatically do this.) I also recommend looking for a high quality printer. While 10 cent prints sound great in theory, the cheaper printing quality often won’t do your images justice. Paper quality, color correction and a handful of other factors play a big role in the way your prints turn out. This is one of the reasons why I LOVE offering prints to our clients. I
HOW LONG SHOULD I PLAN FOR THE SESSION TO TAKE?
I typically plan about 45-60 minutes for a full session or 15 minutes for a mini session. While I likely don’t need to be shooting this entire time, this does give us the flexibility for location changes, rowdy kids and time to warm up.
