So what can you expect from a documentary photography session?

You contact me, and we discuss your vision for the shoot. We’ll brainstorm things that your family likes to do together.

On the day of your shoot, I grab some coffee and head over to meet your family. I’ll probably spend a little time getting to know your kids, scouting out your home for good photo spots, and then I’ll start shooting. Your session will be relaxed and casual – not super posed and stressful.

Some pointers?  Wear clothes that make you comfortable. Kids can even start out in pajamas and then get dressed (and maybe re-dressed, if they are like my kids). Don’t worry if your kid is grumpy/sleepy/fussy/not-smiley – that is all part of showing the realness of you! Decluttering your house a little can help, but even there, don’t stress!

Two to three weeks later, I’ll provide you images that will show you a kind of beauty that maybe even you didn’t know was there.

Your session includes:

  • pre-session consultation
  • 1-1/2 to 2 hour session in your home or on-location
  • professional hand editing of all images
  • online proofing gallery (though the number of images is dependent on the circumstances, our galleries typically contain about 100 – 150 images)
  • a selection of high-resolution digital images from your session

We can also assist you with designing and ordering a storybook album and fine art prints featuring your favorite images from your session.



A signed agreement and $200 session fee is required to book your session. This session fee reserves your date and includes a phone consultation and my time and talent on the day of the session; it will be applied as a $200 credit toward your image collection purchase.

Digital image collections start at $225, but most clients typically plan to invest $550 – $775 in images from their session.

Please contact us for full pricing information, to ask any questions, or to schedule your session.
