These amazing sessions follow you and your family and offer a glimpse into your life. Whether it be in a park playing, baking cookies in your home, or spending a full day with you documenting what your life looks like at this very moment in time, they are an amazing way to preserve the memories of this time forever.
Day In The Life collections begin at $350.
When people ask me to photograph their weddings there is absolutely no higher honor. I become a part of the family for the day. I laugh with you and I cry with you and in the end you get to watch your own amazing day through my eyes. That honor isn't lost on me. I love love in all forms and I truly adore each of my couples.
Wedding collections begin at $2500.
Some of the most precious photos I take are of the tiniest humans. Maternity, births, newborns, and the entire first year of life is so incredibly fleeting. I completely understand what it's like wanting to preserve every single moment of those times as they pass us by.
Multi-session packages throughout the first year start at $125 per session.
It completely depends on the type of session! Most of my standard sessions start at $350, my wedding collections start at $2500, and I offer various packages for milestones and events. Contact me today to get an exact quote for what you're looking for!
Yesterday! Just kidding, kind of. With weddings especially, as early as possible is best so that you can secure your date. Often I'm booking weddings a year or more in advance. When it comes to session dates, often people want a very specific location, time of year, group of people to get together, or you have a venue that you have secured for a certain date. Once a session is booked it's yours for good! So there is definitely no reason not to get it on the calendar for the date that works best for you.
ABSOLUTELY. Definitely shoot me a message if you have something you'd love to capture somewhere other than Central Iowa. I have traveled everywhere from Germany to Mexico to Australia to France and all over the United States. I adore getting to see new places and meet new people particularly when I get to photograph them while doing so!
The biggest thing to me is for you guys to feel comfortable in what you're wearing. If you're jeans and t-shirt people, then be jeans and t-shirt people for your session. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. The only thing that I tend to ask people to avoid is logos/words on shirts and teeny tiny prints because they tend to be difficult to see. Other than that? Rock it. When in doubt go for neutrals! They will always be classic and down the road you'll love your images even more. See my wardrobe guide here for more ideas.
My average delivery time for regular sessions is 2-4 weeks. Generally I will post a preview on my personal and business Facebook pages as well as Instagram but you can expect to receive your full album within a month of your session.
For all standard sessions, you receive 30+ high resolution, edited images as well as the rest of the images from the session (generally 100ish per hour of shooting). I love being able to give you those little quirky images and funny faces maybe only you as a mom can recognize and that's why I include them in every session.
I LOVE designing albums and ordering gorgeous prints, products, and canvases for my clients to display in their homes. Please ask me about any specific items you might be looking for!
This is actually a trickier question than you might think. Copyright is not something that can be given away, all copyright will always belong to me BUT you are given release to print and share your images for your own personal use. Once a file has been given to you, you may do what you like with it!
