My sessions and pricing philosophy are simple. I want you to have all the usable image from our time together. That’s why I always include ALL the digitals —- That means full-resolution digital files of your images for you to use as you please. However, I REALLY want you to have tangible keepsakes of your images so I offer top quality custom professional print services, or if you are a DIY-er, I can recommend a consumer lab that I trust.
Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. -- Dr Seuss
I feature two different types of sessions:
A documentary-style session telling your unique story, whatever it might be that day, either in your own home or at a location of your choice (for example Saturday morning breakfast, going blueberry picking, planting a new garden, or just pillow fights and tickles in your pajamas!) This is embedded family photojournalism that tells the story of your life, capturing the little things, freezing those moments in time. If you've ever felt like your kids are growing up too fast, now is the time to capture this chapter in your life!
A traditional portrait session at a location of your choice (I can recommend some!) Includes posed and some candid images. Great for family sessions, special occasions, engagements, etc.
Included in either type of session are the initial discussion about how to create and customize your session, 1 to 4 hours of shooting time, your hand edited, high resolution images in an online gallery for you to view, share, and download from, and an optional product purchasing session, should you prefer some guidance. (Professional quality prints and canvases can be purchased directly from your gallery or I can create a one-of-a-kind custom album or mounted storyboards. Please let me know if you would like to see a product list or discuss options.)

“I know how time consuming finding a good printer and getting round to printing your images can be. Because of this, I offer a selection of services to you, including printing, framing, canvases and photo books at competitive prices - all available through your gallery. Your images come with full printing rights and you are very welcome to print to your heart's content! However, due to limitations with printing inks and media, I can only guarantee colours and appearance when you print through me. Images need to be edited differently for different media, so I edit images either for screen, canvas or printing.” Get my pricing guide here:
