MOMS! Grab some blankets and a thermos of cocoa. We'll hike back into the woods, cuddle up with your kid(s) and I'll click away while you try and help your 3 year old not dribble cocoa all over his new shirt. We will all laugh about it and then run around. Play tag or hide and seek. Your husband will toss your babe into the air and I'll get the best shot of him laughing. Then we will let him run off and play with sticks while we get a couple shots of you two laughing together, holding each other close. A quick glimpse of who you were before crazy man came around. And don't worry, little photoshop will clean that cocoa drip right up. Is there something you do as a family? Do you go to a special spot on the river on hot summer days? Take tractor rides at grandma and grandpas? Pick cherries at a special orchard in Greenbluff? Bring me along. Lets make this as casual as possible.
NEW BORNS! Oh mama.. don't miss this fleeting moment. Invite me to your house. Tidy up your bedroom a bit and crawl into bed with your partner and let me photograph you loving on this brand new person. It will be super simple and slow. Details of baby feet and soft touches. Photos that represent this exact moment. It is the longest shortest moment in your life. Includes Birth Announcement.
BABY BELLIES! Oh those dreamy baby bellies. Lets pick a sunny evening. Find a quiet spot by the river or in the woods. Dress in something that makes you feel beautiful and we will capture you and your love in this fleeting time. This moment that you are no longer the person you were, but not yet the person you are about to become. You're in the still. So much anticipation. So much unknown. So much excitement and fear. Lets freeze this moment for you. Tell me about your pregnancy while I photograph that perfect belly. Ask me questions about natural child birth and the early days of breastfeeding (if you're a first time momma) or lets talk about what its like to bring that second baby home. The challenges and rewarding moments of two. Lets make this evening memorable.
SENIORS! What do you like do to? What kind of pictures do you see in your mind. Lets take those. Floral crowns in a grassy field. Fly fishing in your secret spot. 4 wheeling in the mud. Cherry blossoms. Your grandparents property you grew up on. Does your grandma have a cool vintage chair that we can carry out into the woods? I've got ideas, but I want to hear yours. Includes Graduation Announcement.
COUPLES! Did you just get engaged? Or have you been married a few years and haven't had a picture taken together since your wedding? Thinking of starting a family but want a few pictures of life as just the two of you before your world shifts into another direction. Best friends who dream of having photos taken together in warm summer light and flower crowns? Mom and daughter? Lets talk! Includes Save the Date.
I like to have a quick consultation with you about your ideas for what kind of session you are looking for. If you need any suggestions on clothing and props. A specific style. We can do this over email, text, phone or coffee! You can give me 100 ideas or zero.
For basic groups, I charge a flat $300 for 1-2 hours of shooting time at a location of your choice or somewhere fun I have up my sleeve. If you have a different group than listed above, ( example: family reunion or 10+ girlfriends in prom dresses) email me and we can work something out.
I am very willing to travel! Anything within 50 miles round trip (from Spokane Valley). I do charge $1 per additional mile beyond that.
You'll receive a USB Memory stick with (usually) 100+ edited images and shared copyrights to the images. This does not give you the rights to edit, crop or change the photos in any way.
I prefer to shoot outdoors in the golden hours of the day. Either just after sunrise or meet about 2 hours before sunset. But I am open to in home sessions. Especially for new borns.
