During my ten years of experience as a wedding photographer, I found the biggest challenge for my clients was what to do with their photos. Not only was it almost impossible to cull and select images, they were overwhelmed with all the printing choices. What size to print for the wall? What crop looks best? What paper to use? What lab to work with? How and where to make an album? Even finding time for these projects is a challenge. Many admitted to me that they put images up on social media and haven't done anything else, but plan to eventually!
After seeing this trend, I decided to restructure my business and provide a full service experience. I guide busy families through the whole process and they walk away with finished artwork to display in their homes. I love to create custom designed pieces for clients that fit their unique space. I work exclusively with labs that produce museum quality products only available to professional photographers. I love textured cotton papers and oversized mats!
When the images are ready, we meet for an artwork ordering session, conveniently located at your home. We review all your images together and make selections for printing, keeping your style and budget in mind. I offer framed wall art, matted prints and linen bound albums. A complimentary digital file is included with every image purchased. On average, most families spend about $600+ on printed artwork, but there is no minimum purchasing requirement.
To book a session, I charge a creative fee that covers my time and expertise.
Child or Newborn Session - $250 Creative Fee. These sessions tend to be 1-2 hours in length. I capture candid, natural images of your children as they play around the house or a familiar place. Before our session we will chat about what a typical day looks like and arrange for a few activities during my time there. For newborns and young babies, we take time for you to simply sit and hold your baby. I quietly document those peaceful moments spent together. I also focus on feeding, naps and bath time.
Family Day in the Life Session - $350 Creative Fee. These sessions generally are 4-6 hours. I would document the whole family as they go about their day at home, although a favorite activity outside of the home works too! I usually either start in the morning when the kids are waking up, capture breakfast and a family activity - or I arrive in the afternoon to photograph playtime, dinner and your bedtime routines.
