Portrait Offers

I offer 2 distinct portrait session options – The 45 minute Narrative Session and the 15 minute Mini Session. Read below to determine which one is the best fit for you!

1. THE NARRATIVE SESSION

The Narrative Session is a slower paced, hands-off, documentary approach to capturing your family. You’ll spend the majority of your time interacting with each other while I document all of those real, beautiful moments (with a few posed photos mixed in). Due to the more organic nature it can be helpful to have something “to do” during your session that will allow you to engage with one another. The only rule is it has to be something you actually like to do together (terrible, right? 🤪). This can be as simple as going on a walk together or playing around the house, to something a little more involved like baking cookies or spending a day at the fair. We will work together to come up with a game plan that will truly reflect who you all are and allow for your story to come through!

Narrative Sessions are best for families who don’t like to “perform” for the camera, appreciate the realness of their life, don’t like the time crunch of a mini session, and want more control over when and where the session takes place. The most important thing to know about the Narrative Session is it requires you and your family to engage well with one another because I won’t be interfering much!

2. THE MINI SESSION

The Mini Session is short and sweet, mostly posed and prompted by me with just a few candid moments sprinkled in. These sessions work best for families with older kids, groups who aren’t as comfortable being candid in front of a camera, or folks who just want a “few good ones.”

I know how incredibly important these sessions are, and in order to serve you best I need to make SURE we are a great fit. Because of this, I do extended family sessions on a case-by-case basis.

Q & A

• What's Included

• All sessions include an online, password protected gallery of high-resolution edited photo files with an adjacent print store for high-quality print products. Galleries are delivered within 4 weeks of your session date.

• Photos may be used for personal prints and sharing online.

• I do full edits on every photo and light retouching on things like skin, stray hairs, distractions, etc. For additional retouching a fee *may* apply depending on the request. One perk of choosing me as your photog are my sweet Photoshop skills. ;-)

• Extra Charges

• For 45 minute sessions travel is free for the first 50 miles round trip from my home in Lakeville, after that a $0.70 per mile fee applies. Minis sessions are held at a pre-selected location of my choice.

• Some locations require a permit, which is an additional fee (varies per location). I will do all the work and research beforehand to determine whether or not a permit is required, and at that time we can decide if we want to go ahead with that location or choose a different, fee-free spot!

• Additional digital files for Mini sessions are $15 a piece, or $150 for the full gallery. Prints and print products are extra.

I have learned . . .

I have learned a LOT since I started my photo journey back in 2007, and these are the big truths I’ve come to know:

  1. Getting photos taken shouldn’t be hard, stressful, or boring. Gross.
  2. Some people just want a few good, updated photos without a lot of fuss. Those people are usually dads. 😂
  3. Some people want a deeper photo experience and a grander end product that fully highlights them in their unique light. I call these “Narrative Sessions.”
  4. Some people want both but at different times in their life. This makes total sense.
  5. Photos are a gift to your future – yours, your kid’s, your loved ones . . . some random person at an antique shop in 100 years . . .
  6. You will never regret having the photos . . . but you might regret not having them.

Taking these things into consideration I’ve come up with several offers to fit whatever season of life you’re in. Whether you want the full photography experience with an end product that will fill your walls & albums, or a lighter option with just a few good ones, I’ve got something for you! Although my offers differ from each other in logistics, the theme of ease, tenderness and joy runs strong throughout.

Before you know it we’ll be hanging out in the sunset, picking daisies,  unplugged and remembering what it’s all about. 🤍🌿✨

A precious moment, a lovely image, can be captured and kept forever

“ WE LOVE BECAUSE IT’S THE ONLY TRUE ADVENTURE ”
