Your time with your kids is the most important
As a client-led Photographer...
I'm here to document the authentic moments between you and your family. I will gently "pose" and prompt only when necessary. Just show up prepared to tickle, giggle, and love on your family. Kids might be wild. Let them be wild. Explore with them. Tell your children you're going on an adventure. I want to photograph those exact moments when real life and love are on display. I want you to remember how your family connection was at that time in your lives, perfectly imperfect and ever so lovable.
Each session includes a high-resolution download of your images via an online gallery, a print release, and a How to Prepare & Style Guide. You have the option to purchase additional images beyond what is included in your package while viewing your gallery.
Do You Travel?
Yes! In fact, I love to travel. A travel fee of $0.65 per mile round trip will be charged for locations 15+ miles outside of Concordia, KS.
Do I have to order prints through you?
You do not have to order prints through me but I recommend it. There is the option to order prints through your gallery for convenience. Professional printing labs I recommend include Mpix, Millers, and White House Custom Coloring.
When and how will i receive my professionally edited photos?
Turn around time for professionally edited photos is 2-3 weeks (depending on the season). You will receive high-resolution professionally edited images via an online gallery for download. Downloading high-res images to a desktop computer is recommended.
will there be a sneak peak of my photoshoot on social media?
There is a chance your photos will be posted on my Instagram and Facebook business pages. This, however, is not something I will do with every photoshoot. If you prefer I do not post them online please let me know before or during your photoshoot.
Can I reschedule my photoshoot?
You have 2 days prior to your booked photoshoot to reschedule. Your non-refundable retainer will be transferred to your new date. Rescheduling due to weather will be determined by me.
Will I be refunded if I cancel my photoshoot?
If you cancel your photoshoot less than 48 hours prior to the session time you will not receive your non-refundable retainer back. To rebook you will have to pay another non-refundable retainer.
Do you offer a bump to baby bundle package?
Yes, I do! You can choose three sessions and receive $100 off. Get in touch with me for the best time to schedule this package.
How should we dress for our family session?
Dress comfortably and wear something that is true to you. Don't feel like you have to go out and spend a fortune on an entirely new outfit for everyone in the family. Start with mom's outfit first and coordinate (not match) from there. I can send you a style guide after booking!
when is the best time for a newborn session?
Typically studio newborns are scheduled between one and three weeks of age - that's when they are the sleepiest. Lifestyle newborns can be scheduled up until they are four months old. Just remember though, that your baby will never be too old for photos! The best time to book is in your second trimester.
How many pictures will I receive?
This is determined based on the package you choose. Additional photos are available to purchase through my online shop.
What Locations Do you use for session?
This all depends on your completed questionnaire. What mood or vibe are you trying to achieve? Do you prefer cityscapes, grassy fields, or woodsy areas? Maybe none of those. I'm open to all suggestions and we will discuss the best place for your photoshoot.
