Session Types

We offer several session options to create the perfect photographic art that is specially designed for your space. This can include a wall portrait, an heirloom album and digital images that you would like to preserve for generations. The creative session fee formally books your portrait appointment and covers the pre-session consultation in person or by phone, your portrait session, post-session processing and preparation of your images and a private viewing/ordering appointment at our studio. It does not include any prints or products. Clients may purchase products via “Create A Collection” or A La Carte.

Watch Me Grow! Plan

The Watch Me Grow! Plan is something that I am very excited to offer. If you know that you will want to have the first year of your baby’s life documented in pictures this is the perfect package for you. Many parents choose this plan before the baby is even born.

When you make the decision to purchase the Watch Me Grow! Plan you are actually purchasing a certain number of sessions as well as products and services from me. This is a plan that is scheduled at different stages during the first year of your baby’s life. Examples of these stages are: a maternity session, newborn session, a sitting/crawling session and of course the one year cake smash session.

If you prefer, we can schedule the sessions on the baby’s age instead of development stages. Examples of these are newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and one year.

Of course if you want something completely custom, I can accommodate that too. We do not care when you choose to have your baby’s sessions. This is a decision that is made entirely by you. But it is important to mention that all Watch Me Grow sessions must be completed by the baby’s first birthday.
