FAMILY PORTRAIT INFORMATION & PRICING
STEP ONE: SCHEDULING YOUR SESSION
SESSION FEE $125
My portrait sessions are a customized experience with no limits on subjects or locations. I am happy to work with you ahead of time to offer wardrobe advice and select a location that best fits your style.
The session fee includes approximately an hour of shooting either on-location or in the studio. There are no travel fees within 40 miles of Seward, Nebraska. If you are looking for something short and sweet, a half session might be a good fit.
STEP TWO: THE SESSION
Once we've decided on a time and date and officially scheduled your session, I'll send a "getting ready" guide that walks you through everything from choosing outfits to getting kids to cooperate. This typically answers the majority of the questions that come up, but I'm always happy to chat if you need additional guidance.
A few days before the session, I'll reach out to confirm the details. If the weather is looking questionable or someone is sick, we can talk about rescheduling options. I do my best to keep at least one day per week opening for rescheduling because life (and bad weather) happens. At this point, it's also the perfect time to ask any last-minute questions or let me know if you have specific ideas or requests.
On the day of the session, you can plan on approximately 60-90 minutes for the shoot. If there is a wardrobe malfunction or toddler meltdown, don't stress. I've seen it all, and still think I have the greatest job in the world! I'm patient and flexible. If we need a little extra time, it's totally fine.
STEP THREE: THE FUN PART
Within a couple of weeks of your session, you'll receive an email letting you know that your photos are ready. Once you've had a charge to see them and marvel a bit, you'll select your collection. After that, you'll have a full month to select the specific digital files and print items you want to use to fill that collection–zero pressure! If you are like me and like to see and feel things like album covers and paper types, I have samples of all the products I offer in the studio. You are always welcome to set up a time to stop in. If you would prefer to set up an appointment at the studio to order, that's cool too!

What you are going to do with your images is possibly the most important aspect to consider when planning for a photo session, but it's also too often the aspect overlooked. The time and money invested deserve a better return than the photo files gathering dust on a hard drive somewhere. I've lost count on the number of times I've had past clients embarrassingly admit that they did absolutely nothing with their image files, even though they absolutely loved the photos.
This is where I can help. I make sure every print and product is produced to perfection. I can make adjustments to the cropping, color and offer retouching as needed. This is your chance to press the easy button and let me take care of all the work, while still providing access to your collection of digital images.
Below is a sample of some of the items you may choose from:

Prints 10x15 and larger are mounted on matboard.
