investment aka "pricing"

This is truly an investment in freezing a stage of life, a frame of time that you can never get back.  These are the moments we will want to remember forever …  I hope to capture just a few of those precious times for you; a smile, those gorgeous little eyes, a wrinkled nose, the way they laughed, or the cutest pout ever, so you can always remember YOUR cutie patooties!

Halloween memories to treasureFamily Session fee is $225
This includes an approximate one hour photo shoot for up to 4 people @ a near-by location of your choosing.  Anyone added to the session after that (pet or person) is $20 more per person/pet. This is the choice for groups of any kind & families.*

Single Session fee is $200
This is a good option for Senior photos, First Communion, Birthday milestones, pregger moms or any other occasion with 1 child or person involved in the shoot!  (*if pregger moms want children or hubbie included… it moves to a Family Session) It is again around a one hour photo shoot.*

Tiny Patootie fee is $210
This includes an approx. hour photo session with a tiny infant from newborn to and including 2 years.  Please know, as I do: sessions with infants do in fact take an hour, if not more, due to feedings & changings & sleeping or not sleeping! *

Session Fee is due in full on the day of the photo shoot.

Periodically throughout the year I run specials & mini-sessions at lower prices.  When you talk to me, feel free to ask about that!

I appreciate it when clients tell other people about me, it is flattering & a HUGE compliment.  For this, I will give 10% off future sessions with me if you refer someone, so please tell your friends & family to mention YOU.

I will travel to the Chicago area from the Fox Cities in Wisconsin, as I do for personal reasons about once a month.  However, if a coordinating trip cannot be worked out with that once-a-month personal trip of mine, I will need to add travel costs (price to be determined with each clients location).  I will also travel to other areas of Wisconsin (travel price again will be determined with individual clients).

As I am a mom to four kids too, my schedule for photography clients fills up pretty quickly, so please try to contact me a month or two in advance so we can best accommodate your busy schedule as well.

Unforseen situations
Please remember, as I do … that children will be children & pets sometimes are not much different. They are fun, energetic, curious, and emotional at times.  I understand pretty much anything that can make a session not go quite as planned.  If that seems to be the way our day is going … I will reschedule at my discretion.  My ultimate goal is to get quality photos of you & your family for you to cherish while all of us enjoy ourselves in an easy going atmosphere.   The same concept with the weather.  If it ends up raining or doing something else from the sky that we were not intending to happen in our session, we can mutually agree on a re-scheduled date.

I appreciate one week notice for cancellations.   If that does not happen, there is a cancellation fee of $50.  I do however, understand that things happen beyond our control, kids get sick, etc…  If you can reschedule within 1 month of the cancelled date, no cancellation fee will be required.

Thanks so much!
