Booking a Session
There is currently no booking fee as the package I offer is all inclusive from start to finish. Photo sessions should be booked a few weeks in advance, unless it’s the holiday season where a four to six week notice is required. In the event that a session has to be postponed due to the weather or a schedule conflict, we will reschedule at the earliest convenience of the photographer and the client.
Sessions can be held at the location of your choosing. I am able to travel to anywhere in the DC metro area, as well as in and around the Central Pennsylvania area. Whether at your home or a public park, my goal is to capture the photos you have envisioned. I will take the time to fully understand your expectations, and provide the props, accessories, etc. to ensure you are pleased with the final product. Being a mom of three young babies, I am aware of the limitations of children during a long photo shoot. I work as diligently and efficiently as possible as to not drag out a session beyond what is comfortable.
All-inclusive pricing for a custom session at the location of your choice and release of digital images is $300.00. This includes the photographers time and talent, digital photo processing and editing, location scouting and props provided by me to create the photographs you have envisioned.
"Mini-sessions" are available and include a 30 minute on location photo shoot, 10 images on CD, and 1 card or invitation for $150.00.
After the shoot you will receive a CD or download including 25-30 fully-edited shots with rights for printing., as well as one 8x10 and two 5x7s.
What to Bring
Please remember that the photos should be about you and your family. A general rule of thumb with clothing is to coordinate, and not match, one another. Solids are preferred over patterns, and even during the summer months, sleeves are most flattering. Feel free to bring any prop that you feel will capture the individuality of your child or family.
Proofing and Ordering
Working with so many photographers in the past has really helped to emphasize the importance of a fast turnaround with proofs. My goal is to provide you with 2-3 'sneak peeks' within 12 hours of the session.
I will use Photoshop CS6 to edit 25-30 of the best images shot during your session. These will be made available to you within two weeks either by CD or download. Additional prints, photo shoots, and birth announcements / cards / invitations are also available at the client's request.
