I am so excited you want to have family photos taken! Even though the days may feel long, the years truly are very short. It is such a privilege to be alongside your family, capturing beautiful memories with your children at all the different stages of their lives. I make it my mission to keep your session laid back and fun. To make this a reality, I’ll be sure to send lots of tips your way beforehand so you can be totally prepared to rock your photo shoot!

Frequently Asked Questions
I’m not local to you. Do you travel?
Heck yeah! Within 30 miles of home base (Clinton, IA) is free, beyond that it’s 50 cents per mile. Please email me for a custom quote if your location is more than 150 miles away.
What happens if the weather is bad?
I prefer to reschedule if the weather is bad. Overcast is totally fine, even a few sprinkles are okay, but if we have storms or heavy rain, extreme cold or heat, we can certainly choose another date. I will make a call 4-8 hours before the session based on the forecast. If you need a specific date due to out of town family members or difficult schedules, you may need to rent an indoor option as a plan B ahead of time, as I do not have an indoor studio. We can always use your beautiful home as well!
What exactly are hi-resolution digital files?
These are the edited images from your session that you will receive via a digital gallery. The digital files you choose can be downloaded onto your laptop so you can order your own prints and share them on social media. However, I do offer professional quality prints at affordable prices directly through the gallery as well!
How many photos will you edit from my session?
I only cut out the obviously unwanted photos such as eye-blinks and mid-sneezes. The rest get edited! You will be able to choose which digital files you’d like to download with the option to upgrade to the full gallery (double the images).
I’m ready to book! What’s next?
Hooray! The next step is to pick a date for your session and fill out my proposal, which I will send via email. This is where you’ll make your session package selections, sign your contract and pay the 50% retainer. I am so excited to welcome you as a client and will be with you every step of the way! Just send me an email with some potential dates to get started!
