Pricing & portrait Packages

I currently offer outdoor family/pregnancy portrait sessions, lifestyle newborn sessions in your home, and the option of creating a custom collection of portrait sessions to document your baby's first year.

Family or pregnancy session

A traditional family portrait session that includes just your partner and children. Your session will be a mix of both posed and candid images, and I always aim to get every combination of your family members whenever possible--including just mom and dad!

$400

Lifestyle Newborn Session

Capturing you and your new baby interacting in your home environment for more candid and natural images. The newborn stage is fleeting--this is your opportunity to take those magical photos of your new little babe that you'll cherish forever.

$525

Milestone Collections

Documenting your little one's biggest milestones. Multi-session packages are available and can include a combination of pregnancy, lifestyle newborn, 6 months, 1 year or anything in between.
*Please contact me regarding package pricing.

Starting at $850

Additional things to know:

  • All portrait sessions includes a minimum of 50 edited digital images delivered via private online password-protected gallery. You will be able to download your non-watermarked images from this gallery.
  • Family and pregnancy sessions are on location and up to 1 hour, starting just prior to sunset.
  • Newborn sessions last anywhere 1-3 hours on average and are generally done in the morning in your home. (*please contact me regarding packages and how things will work during the COVID-19 pandemic)
  • A $50 non-refundable retainer is due at the time the first session is booked–this deposit is needed to secure your session date; the portrait portion of the balance will be due at or before each session.
  • Birth announcements and holiday cards can be customized for your family--please let me know if this is something you're interested in either before or after your session. I love creating custom cards for my clients! You will also have the option to order these directly through your gallery with many options to choose from. Some of my package collections include birth announcements--please contact me for pricing.
  • Currently, I am not traveling further than approximately 25 miles from my home (91304) for on location sessions, but exceptions may be made on a case by case basis.

Your questions answered!

What time of day will my session take place?

I only do sunset sessions, meaning for a full session we would start an hour prior to sundown. The time will vary based on the time of year, of course. The exceptions to this being fall/holiday mini sessions, which start a little earlier and go until sunset; and newborn sessions which take place in your home generally in the morning, unless it's seasonally appropriate to be photographing your newborn outdoors.

How far in advance should I contact you to book my session?

For the most available options, it's best to book your session 3-4 weeks in advance for a family session. I recommend booking your newborn session in the 3rd trimester of pregnancy. We will solidify a date after your baby arrives, but I need to know your due date and any special circumstances surrounding your delivery so I can make sure I will be available.

Can I order prints through you?

Yes! You can order prints and more directly through your private online gallery where you will view and download your images. I highly recommend that you order professional quality prints to show off the investment you've made in professional portraits for your family. I offer many sizes and options for prints, framed canvases, gallery wall collections and more.

Can I book a mini session?

I generally only do mini sessions just prior to the holidays, but I do plan to start offering them in the spring as well. Stay tuned!

How long after my session will I receive a link to my photos?

I edit my sessions in order of when they were taken--you will receive the link to your gallery within 2 weeks.
