Investment & Experience
 




--- SESSION INFO ---

I believe every stage of life is important to document. The young couple in a magical new love, the joining of two souls in marriage, the beginnings of bringing a child into the world, the birth and new family dynamic, the couple who isn't ready for children but loves their fur babies, the single moms (or dads!) holding life together, and the families who are so imperfectly perfect.

This is an investment. It’s not a quick “sit here and smile at the camera” experience, although I do promise you will get that "Christmas card photo" in your gallery. My main focus in on capturing the connection between you & your family and documenting those authentic moments. I don’t mind the chaos or toddler meltdowns. It happens! I'm a very patient person so as long as you trust me, fully, you will get those genuine moments and heartfelt details you see displayed throughout my art. I capture connection, beauty and love with a very honest approach. I believe in making photo sessions fun and stress free. Life passes by so quickly; let's slow it down and spend some time together! 

I want to show you the beauty I see in the moments you may feel are complete chaos.

 


 

--- SESSION DETAILS ---
 

You can find a brief description about the type of sessions I offer below! Please fill out the CONTACT FORM HERE so we can chat about planning your session & discuss any questions you may have!

What's included: my time, talent and artistic editing, printing rights and a private online gallery with the full set of high-resolution digital images ready for downloading. And the added bonus- you can order prints of all sizes directly through your gallery on this website! The turnaround time for your images is 7-10 days with same-day sneak peeks posted to social media! If you'd rather have a hard copy of your photographs instead of digital downloads, you may provide your own USB / CD or purchase one from me.
 

Family Session :

2-3 hour session; includes 80+ digital images. To get the most authentic images of your family dynamic, I like to start these sessions at your house where I'll document the simple joys of how you spend time with your family. We'll end at a beautiful outdoor location where we'll take the family portraits & explore a little bit. Not sure what to wear? My wardrobe styling services are included so you don't have to stress about what to wear! I can piece together what you already have in your closets or I can go shopping with you! Helpful tip: don't dress alike!

Seniors | Couples | Children-only Session:

One hour session. Includes 30+ digital images. Wardrobe styling available.  Senior sessions are done in Spring or Fall, one outfit change allowed, one location. Couples sessions can be in your home or you can do a fun date activity together! For children-only sessions, we'll be doing at least 2 activities so we can make the most of our time and keep those littles focused on having fun!

Newborn + Maternity | Motherhood Session :

Newborn & Motherhood sessions usually lasts 4-5 hours. Includes 80+ digital images and one 11x14 canvas. Newborn Sessions will be shot in the morning when your little one(s) tends to be the happiest. For these sessions, I bring my "studio" to your house so you don't have to worry about being inconvenienced by hauling everything in the car, only to forget the diapers! Motherhood sessions also begin at your house and end at a beautiful outdoor location. The concept of Motherhood Sessions is to capture how valuable you Mamas are because I'm sure at times you feel like a failure or overwhelmed with chaos. You ladies are inspiring! You need these precious moments with your babies captured because they fly by too quickly! 


 

 *  I LOVE to travel! If you're not in the area surrounding Columbia, SC, I will gladly come to you! There is a travel fee of $0.50 per mile, round trip, that will be added onto your package total.

--- WEDDING INFO ---
 


 

Do I shoot weddings? Absolutely! I L.O.V.E. everything about weddings! The girls dancing around the dressing room, sipping pink champagne and doing each others makeup. The guys eating pizza, talking sports and waiting until 10 minutes before the wedding to get dressed. The mom who tries so hard to hold it together but lets the tears flow out the minute she sees her baby girl in her wedding dress. The groom that stands so boldly in front of his friends and family and pours his heart songs out loud for everyone to hear how much he loves his bride. The "aww's", "woo-hoo's", the continuous smiles and laughter, the dancing, dancing, dancing! All of it gets me every time and all of it I promise to capture for you!
