General information:

  • All my clients are treated as individuals and friends. Together we will capture genuine smiles, flattering poses, and real connections between you and your loves ones.
  • All my sessions include digital images. I will chose the best images from your session, transform them into works of art and present them in an online gallery where you can share, download, or order prints.
  • At the time of booking you will be asked to complete a short online reservation form and contract. You will also be invoiced for the session fee. I accept check, cash, venmo and all major credit cards.
  • I reconfirm all sessions 24-48 hours in advance and will offer to reschedule if the weather is uncooperative.
  • All session fees are non-refundable, however – I am very flexible. If you need to reschedule due to illness or an emergency, your entire session fee is honored if we reschedule within 60 days.
