Each custom portrait session is carefully designed to deliver beautiful artwork to adorn your home or office. In your pre-session consultation, we will talk about where you wish to display your custom art pieces, and begin designing your session. From wall art, to tabletop displays and albums, there is sure to be a combination of pieces that will suit your space perfectly. Your session will be planned to ensure timeless artwork that you will be proud to display in your home for years to come, and to pass down to future generations.
Portrait session investment starts at $150, and includes a pre-session consultation, your portrait session, and one post-session ordering appointment. Your session fee is a non-refundable retainer that locks in your preferred session date. Your retainer can be applied to one rescheduling up to 48 hours prior to your session date, providing the rescheduled date is within 4 weeks of your original session date.
Add outdoor environmental portraits to your session for an additional $50.00. We will visit a nearby green area for 15-30 minutes of additional photo time. This adds a great variety to your finished portfolio.
There are many beautiful public venues that also make for outstanding portraits. Many of these impose photography fees to allow professional photographers to conduct sessions on the property. If you have your heart set on the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens, The Japanese Tea Garden, The Dallas Arboretum, or similar, I will secure the necessary permits to ensure we're "legal" that day. These locations require additional time and logistics; permit fees and session fees for the custom location will all be reviewed with you during your pre-booking consultations.
The squishy, wrinkly, brand new baby phase is so fleeting and so precious! Newborn babies change quickly and they are only little once! I book a limited number of newborn sessions each month, typically less than 4. Your session will be booked according to your due date, and scheduled to take place within the first 14 days after your baby's birth. Sessions are booked out weeks in advance, so I recommend you book early.
Newborn session investment starts at $250, and can include parents and siblings. This session takes place at my in-home studio for the widest flexibility in backdrops, blankets, and props. If your new little one arrives significantly earlier or later than your due date, don't worry - I'll adjust your session date as needed. Please bear in mind that the newborn stage is best captured in the first 14 days, but up to about 4 weeks of age still produces adorable images. Very early arrivals may need more time to be ready for a session; these circumstances are highly individual, and I will work with you to plan a session at the best time for your new family.
Custom newborn photography sessions last anywhere from 2-4 hours and cater to the new baby's schedule. Some fall asleep quickly and others take their time - it's all up to the baby in these sessions! The magic happens when the baby sleeps, so I take my time to make sure your baby is comfortable and sleepy with a warm studio, soothing music, soft surfaces, and plenty of breaks for coddling, nursing, and changing as necessary. Babies photograph best without clothes. All newborn sessions include the use of coordinated props, wraps, headbands, hats and all kinds of other fun goodies. If you have a special item you would like included with your photographs, please let me know during your pre-session consultation so we can best plan how to incorporate it.
Add a maternity session to your newborn booking for only $100, if booked at the same time you book your newborn session. This is an incredibly special time in your life; you'll want to look back on that beautiful bump and the happiness and joy of expecting a new child. Imagine someday sharing with your child what Mommy looked like when he or she was still in your tummy! Maternity sessions are best scheduled around 30-34 weeks, when you are showing well, but not yet at the uncomfortable end stage. If you are beyond 34 weeks, but still feeling comfortable, give me a call!
Cake Smash session investment starts at $175. Look who's turning ONE! It's so exciting to see a new little one grow through the first year. Commemorate the milestone with a special Cake Smash photo session. These sessions include the smash cake, time for family portraits, and all kinds of fun as we let the birthday boy or girl dig in and get a little messy! I'll work with you to ensure your smash cake fits in with the theme of your little one's party, or with the portraits made during your maternity and newborn session, for a totally cohesive finished portfolio of images. Sessions take place in my home studio. Don't worry about the aftermath - I have accommodations for cleaning up all that messy fun when we're done.
Just looking for a professional headshot for business cards, or social media or internet use? Professional head shot packages are $200, and include a 30-45 minute session, as well as 2 digital images sized suitably for use online and in business cards, or for printing up to 8x10. You'll be able to review and choose your images from an online gallery.
