Each photo session has a creative fee which first covers the pre-consultation where we go over your needs, such as what types of photos you are looking for (candids, portraits, action, end of life, etc). It also includes the photographers time and talent, planning and preparation, the photo session, a gallery of professionally edited photos and the ordering session where we will help you create a custom wall display.

You can count on professional photo paper and photos will be re-touched (minor imperfections but more involved re-touching will cost additional). A 50% non-refundable retainer fee is due at the time of booking to reserve your session date. The balance is due at the time of the session. Travel time includes 30 miles and you will be billed $1/mile beyond that. 

Creative fees do not include prints, products or digital files unless specified. There are no minimums but the average client makes an investment of $500-$3000 on art for their walls. Discounts offered for terminally ill pets.

Engagement Photos Session / Proposal / Vow Renewal – $100

Capture the moment when you pop the question to that special love in your life or ask your life partner to renew your vows.  I will be somewhere discreet until I get the cue to move in to cover the huge moment of her saying ‘yes’.  This session will take up to an hour and document that special day as well as the emotions, surprise, and even tears. After she has been presented with your ring and you’ve heard those magical words I will get some posed images. In total you will have 20-25 images to choose from. Products are not included.

 

“Day in the Life” Lifestyle Sessions”  (Half Day)- $695  (FULL DAY) – $995

This session is more like a documentary than a standard portrait session. We would spend a 1/2 day or full day with your family capturing your life. We would photograph how you interact whether it’s kids helping mom cook, dad reading the kids a book on the couch, a picnic or day at the zoo, playing games, etc. These are moments you will look back on and smile because they capture the true essence and love within your family. These are not your standard portrait types of sessions but rather me disappearing into the woodwork and documenting those special moments before they’re gone.

 

While our main specialties are pets and their families, and lifestyle sessions, we are always available for other types of photography and some of those prices are listed below:
