FAQ

How long does a family session last?

The amount of time is determined by the size of the family. I believe in documenting the bonds and interactions between each of family members. We play, laugh, play patty-cake or whatever else it takes to get those priceless LOVE shots; The ones that evoke ALL the emotion where anyone that looks can feel the LOVE.

Can we bring our pet?

You can, for sure! We just ask you bring someone to get the pets attention (if possible) and to handle it when it's not in certain shots.

Do you travel?

I sure do! There's a travel fee of $.90/per mile to cover time to travel and travel expenses.

Are the digital images included?

Yes they are!

Do I have to order prints through you?

You don't have to but highly encourage you to due to the quality difference in professional prints vs. chain prints. We have a sample if you'd like to see! Nothing compares to a professional quality print or canvas hanging on your wall...Nothing!

You've ruined me! We can't find us a "YOU" here, anywhere!

I have come to realize after moving out of state that you have a very unique signature to your photos that nobody will ever compare to. We love your visions and you are so incredibly talented!

We can't wait for our next shoot!
