What is Documentary Photography?

You being you!  Forget the idea of perfect, and embrace the everyday.  Non-traditional photos shoots are (in my opinion) what families need. This is what you should be doing. Invite me along to your next hike, or the next time you bake a cake together, or when you teach your daughter to ride her bike without training wheels. Twenty years from now, this is the stuff we will cherish.

Will I get any traditional portraits?

Yes!  We will most definitely get some posed shots in.  Offering my client a well rounded packages of documentary, traditional, and artistic images- that all work together to create a stunning gallery, is always my goal.

How long will our session take?

Family sessions are typically quick, on average we are on location for 45 minutes to an hour.

Posed Newborns are considerably longer, averaging 2 hours, but up to 4.

I would like to purchase the digital files, how much is that?

I love digitals too!  Digital Photos and Artwork are available in packages or A la Carte. The cost to purchase your entire photo gallery digitally is $250

I would like additional artwork, do you offer that?

YES! Canvas, Albums, Keepsake Boxes, and additional prints are available.

See those here. 

What should I expect my photos to look like?

Each session is unique, but consistent with what you see in my portfolio.  As the artist, I take it liberty in deciding if on whether an image will be in color or black and white.

When do I get my images?

My contract allows me 6 weeks to deliver your gallery, but my typical turn around for images is one week. I like to have the extra allowance to take into account that life happens.

What is the artwork like?

Good question!  I have details here!

Can I pay extra to get them sooner?

No, I edit my images in order that I take them, and I wouldn’t want another family waiting.

Can extended family be in the photos?

YES! But if there are separate family units, they must pay an additional session fee.

I scheduled a Fresh 48 but I had a tough delivery, and would like pictures in my home instead, is this possible?

YES! I am very flexible and accommodating with new moms.  Your needs are just as important as documenting this exciting time.  Also, it should be said that often times mom never gets out of bed for Fresh48 sessions.
