Whether you are booking a Maternity, Newborn or Family shoot, my rates are all the same! All collections include Heirloom prints and products.
how does it work?
I'm ready to book, now what?
Awesome! Now that you've decided we are the right fit, I will prepare and send over your contract and invoice. The sitting fee is due upon contract signing and is non refundable.
What exactly is a sitting fee?
The sitting fee is your retainer. This secures your shoot date! This covers my time and expertise to prepare everything for you and the costs associated with your shoot, as well as my time shooting. This also includes your style consultation and the use of my client closet.
The shoot is over, what's next?
After your shoot, I will deliver your images in an online gallery within 2 weeks for you to choose your collection. Your images will be fully edited so you don't need to imagine what they will look like! You have 1 week to make your selection. Once you have paid for your collection your images will be available for download. Prints will be ordered and hand delivered by me. For out of town clients, prints will be mailed at an additional expense.
Why are there prints in all collections?
I truly believe in the power of touch. While digital images are great for sharing online, swiping on a screen just doesn't quite have the same effect as holding an album or photo in your hands. They are often forgotten about after they've been posted to social media. Imagine sitting down with your children and loved ones 20, 30 years from now and showing them your memories, in the same way our Parents and Grandparents have done with us. This is why I offer Fine Art prints as well as digitals in all of my collections.
what are fine art prints?
I use a professional lab that is only available to Photographers. Fine Art Prints are produced on the highest quality paper, ensuring your images stand the test of time! Included in the the paper itself are natural fibres like cotton, unlike your typical Photographic paper. At the end of your session, I present to you my product samples so you can really experience the quality!
You still may be thinking, “Okay but WHY do I choose you when there’s so many Photographers out there?”
I can’t tell you how many times I myself have been disappointed with horrible customer service. These days there’s nothing worse than being “left on read”. I strive to answer my clients as fast as humanly possible, I am going to be there for you! Building authentic relationships is important to me, once your little baby is earth side, I want to see them grow up! I always check in with my clients for their Motherhood sessions and other important milestones. I only take on a limited number of clients a month so that each one gets my undivided attention.
There are plenty of Photographers that just shoot you your digitals, you then post them on social media and that’s the end of it. Not with me, I don't like to be like everybody else! Swiping on a screen is just NOT the same as holding a photo or an album in your hands. This is why I made the decision to include Fine Art Prints and Products in ALL of my collections. There was a time not so long ago when digital wasn’t even a thing, our photos are meant to be on our walls! The power of touch is so important, and sadly we are losing that in today’s society. I want to bring it back! Let’s proudly display our photos on our walls, and pass them down to our children and their children.
