2018 Session Pricing

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 to capture.  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.  I now offer three session options for newborns, to accommodate a variety of budgets and photography needs.  Please add $50 to any of these options for a twin session.  Add on a maternity mini session while you are waiting for your sweet little one to arrive, for just $150!

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.

Family Full Session:  $350
Includes 35 high resolution digital images
60-90 minute session at a date and location of your choice (1-2 locations allowed)

Family Mini Session:  $250

•  Please contact me for my upcoming mini session schedule! I typically schedule 2-3 families per date.


Child Sessions
This option is for a child, sibling, or senior portrait session in my home studio or an outdoor location.  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 20 high resolution digital images
•  30-40 minute session at my studio or on location

Baby’s First Year Special:  $150 per session
This option allows for any child studio session for the remainder of the first year to be added on at a discounted price of $150 per session when any newborn session is booked (recommended ages of 3, 6, 9, and 12 months).
•    Includes 20 high resolution digital images
30-40 minute session


Maternity Sessions
Capture the excitement and anticipation of this special time in your life with a maternity/family mini session!  I usually recommend scheduling this when you are between 28-34 weeks in the pregnancy when the belly is making an appearance.  But I also love capturing the announcement and gender reveal stages of early pregnancy, so feel free to contact me if any of these options meet your needs!  Please note that this special discounted pricing is only available when a newborn session is booked.

Maternity Mini Session:  $150
•    Includes 20 high resolution digital images
30-40 minute session on location at selected dates and locations only (please see my family mini session schedule)

Additional Information:
Sales tax is included with all fees.
  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 for $5 per image.
•    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 1-2 weeks of your session (up to 3 weeks during the busier fall months).
Studio sessions take place at my home studio in Spanish Fork, Utah, and outdoor sessions usually take place at a variety of Utah County and Salt Lake City area locations.  Travel fees may apply for locations outside of these areas.

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!
