Package Add-Ons and Upgrades

Sometimes you want options!

I am pleased to offer several value-added, optional upgrades such as Belly Casting, Cake Smash sessions, Custom Art Pieces, Album Upgrades, and Outdoor Mini-Extensions for your studio sessions. 

 



 

Outdoor Mini-Extension

Add some fresh air and variety to your portrait session by choosing the Outdoor Mini-Extension. At the completion of your studio session, we'll move to a nearby green area for 20-30 minutes of additional session time. Seasonally available and weather permitting.

Belly Casting

In about 30 minutes, I will cast your belly in plaster and create a truly personal memento from your pregnancy. We'll then use the cast as a one-of-a-kind prop in your newborn session. The cast is yours to keep after your newborn session.

Casting is completed at the end of your maternity session.

Plan an additional 45 minutes, and bring clothes than can get dirty!

Creative Custom Artwork

I will be pleased to create custom artwork from an image in your session. These pieces are created digitally after your session, and can include painterly finishes, placement into a unique setting or backdrop, or posing your newborn in hanging props. Generally these images require starting from a portrait that has been created with a particular digital enhancement in mind. Sessions often naturally produce images that are suitable for digital art, but not always. If you would like to commission a particular style of creative custom art, please discuss your vision with me prior to your session.

View examples of custom art I've created.   

Complimentary, requires commission as a 16x20 or larger finished piece

Commissioned piece is purchased as an Add-On to your package.

Package credit or included package pieces may not be used for custom commissions.

You are welcome to request inclusion of your commissioned pieces in your photo book or album.

Digital files are not provided for custom commissions.
