Sessions

I believe photography can be a vehicle to discovering ourselves, whether you’re behind the camera or the subject of the photograph. In the constant flow of the present we can use photographs to capture frames of our lives.

As my children age, I realize that they are like little organic time machines.

I look at photos of my parents, or my grandparents, when they were my age and I see myself. The overflowing joy on their wedding day. Their marveling at a growing child or simply having fun.

I believe these memories are best archived in print. We live and thrive in a digital world, yet nothing compares to holding a photograph printed a decade, fifty years, a century ago or longer. Printed photographs withstand changing technology and outdated media. They require no power to enjoy. If handled well, they cannot mysteriously go corrupt and be instantly lost.

Archiving these moments is a beautiful act. I would love to help you capture these memories.


 

Investment Details

If you’re a part of a larger family or want to include extended family, additional family members can be included for an additional $25 per person. The booking fee is non-refundable.

We can schedule the session at your home or a favorite location of your choosing. If you would like location suggestions, I am happy to help! If your location is outside of an hour from Fenton, please let me know as this may include additional travel expenses.

After your session, $150 of your booking fee is applied as a print credit to help get your collection started.

Your prints are fulfilled with Miller’s Professional Imaging, a professional print lab that has been catering to photographers since 1939. Miller’s understand’s the importance and special nature of printed photographs as heirlooms.  If you see a product or service listed on Miller’s website that I don’t currently offer, please let me know and I will provide a quote.

After we complete your session I will provide proofs for you to review for ordering.

Print Packages

Print packages are a great way to start your collection. Once all photographs are color corrected, we will review the set together and decide which photos best suit your needs. We can then build a custom print package to meet your needs precisely.

Package pricing is based on the print formats and quantities desired. Packages will be discounted from a la carte pricing based on the package size. Larger packages carry higher discounts over individual print prices.

Remember, $150 of your booking fee is applied to individual prints or print packages.

All prints include a low-resolution digital copy for sharing on social media and via email. Any print made at the size 16×20 or larger (and all fine art stretched canvas) includes a high-resolution archival file along with the low-resolution sharable file.

Individual digital files with print release may also be purchased for $100 per image.
