2018 Session Pricing

Family Sessions
I love capturing families year-round in our beautiful outdoors!  I have a long list of great locations to help you plan and customize the family session of your dreams.  My mini sessions are some of my most popular sessions of all, but if you desire a little more time and flexibility with your session, then a full session may be just right for you!  The pricing below is for immediate families, but if you desire an extended family session, feel free to contact me for a price quote.  Family sessions with me are a combination of traditional smiling and posed photos, but also with plenty of candid moments filled with laughter, games, and everything else that makes your family uniquely yours!  Summer and fall months always fill up the quickest, so please book early to ensure a spot on my schedule.

*Please note that this pricing is also the same for high school senior, maternity, and outdoor child sessions.

Family Full Session:  $375
Includes 25 high resolution digital images of your choice
60-90 minute session at a date and location of your choice (1-2 locations allowed)

Family Mini Session:  $275
Includes 15 high resolution digital images of your choice
30-40 minute session, at selected dates and locations only
•   Current mini session schedule located HERE! I typically schedule 2-3 families per date.

Newborn Sessions
This time in your life with a new baby is so fleeting and special.  They are only this tiny for so long!  Newborn sessions are some of my very favorites.  I offer full use of my studio props, wraps, headbands, and backdrops to customize each session to exactly what you envision for your sweet baby.  Be sure to book as early as possible, as I recommend scheduling your session when your baby is 5-10 days of age.  This short window of time is when your baby is still very sleepy and poses easily into those sweet, curled up poses.  Please add $50 to any of these options for a twin session.

Baby & Family Newborn Session:  $350
Includes 25 high resolution digital images of your choice
Includes all of my typical poses of baby, plus parents and baby, entire family, and older children individuals/sibling poses (if applicable)
3-3.5 hour session at my home studio

Includes 15 high resolution digital images of your choice
Includes all of my typical poses of your baby only (typically 3-4 blanket poses, 1-2 prop poses)

Child Sessions
This option is for a child or siblings portrait session in my home studio.  My studio offers a wide variety of fun backdrops, props, and accessories and is great for babies and young children (up to about age 10).  With any session, you are welcome to bring 2-3 wardrobe changes, and any accessories or props you would like to incorporate.  Feel free to bring a cake and balloons for those first birthday photos!  If you would like to have me provide a custom cake and stylized backdrop setup, I would love to provide this for an additional $50.

Child Session:  $200
Includes 15 high resolution digital images of your choice
•   30-40 minute session at my studio

Additional Information:
Sales tax (6.75%) is due in addition to all fees (session, digitals, and prints).
  All sessions include your choice of final images to be edited. I love doing this because it ensures that you get your favorite poses and expressions! Additional digital images may be purchased following any session, according to the pricing structure listed above.  My clients love this system, because they get to have ultimate control over how much they need and desire to invest in their session with a la carte add ons, without the hassle of packages they don't need.  There is an option for every budget, whether you want just the images your session includes, or all of them!
•    Final edited images are delivered via an online gallery download, after you select your favorites for me to edit.  Images are typically ready for you to download within 2 weeks of your session (up to 3 weeks during the busier summer and fall months).
•    All session digital images are delivered in high resolution with a print release for you to make your own prints.
You may also print your images with me if you would like to ensure that they are of the best professional quality.
Studio sessions take place at my home studio in Spanish Fork, Utah, and outdoor sessions usually take place at a variety of Utah County locations.  Travel fees may apply for locations outside of Utah County.

I look forward to chatting with you as your plan your beautiful session!  Thank you for taking this opportunity to view my work and trusting me to capture these special memories for you.  Please feel free to contact me for additional session details and booking!
