Portrait Sessions

Your family changes so much year to year. The kids grow up quickly, going from bouncing babies to high school seniors planning their futures. Each milestone should be captured and cherished in every meaningful, fleeting season of life.

Whether it's annual family portrait time, a high school senior, lovely couple...or whatever the reason for a session may be, I'd love to chat with you more about it! 


Introducing, Simplicity Sessions!

These sessions offer an opportunity to get family portraits taken at a quick and easy mini-session style shoot! See below for available dates and locations.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I book you?
Fill out the contact form HERE and I will get back to you as soon as possible! To book your session, you'll need to read and sign the contract and pay 50% of the selected package as a retainer to book your date. The remainder will be due 1 week before your session. 

What are digital downloads? And how do I print my pictures?
Digital downloads are the high resolution edited photo files from your session that you will be able to download onto your computer or device. The number of included digital files is listed in each session description above. You will have the option after your session to purchase additional files or prints. 

Do you bring any assistants?
I sometimes work with an assistant for sessions, depending on lighting conditions, gear required and number of people at the session. The assistant carries equipment, helps to gather and pose people, and sets up lighting as needed.

How far will you travel?
Locations within 30 miles of Clinton, Iowa are no extra charge. That being said, I am more than happy to travel and would love to discuss options with you.

How many photos will I get back?
Since every session is different with unique sets of photo opportunities, I can't guarantee a certain number of pictures in addition to the included number of digital files. That being said, I snap a lot of pictures and I don't narrow it down to a pre-set number. I will cut out any testing shots, duplicates and eye blinks, and the rest will be edited for your final gallery! 

Will all of the images be edited?
The final image selections are all post-produced through Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. The editing process involves color and tone correction, exposure adjustment, noise reduction, and selective creative edits. All of your images will look professional and cohesive to my signature style. I don’t like to change appearance unless requested, so included retouching is minimal. Any desired additional editing and retouching is an extra charge.
