Investment

Even with the onset of the “Digital Era”, photos are still prized possessions for any family, often one of the things that are carefully protected and proudly displayed throughout life. Our walls and shelves are often lined with photos. They symbolise time and significance and family. Photos tell a story. I want to help capture your story forever. Not only do I consider photos to be an investment into your family for decades to come, I am honored to be a part of creating and delivering that investment.

Family Portrait Session

The Setup: Location of your choice within 20 mile radius of Indianapolis, preferably outdoors (can help with recommendations)

The Story: Your little family rock up and enjoy one another in a beautiful setting. There will be minimal posing and maximum candid capturing. Tell the story through photos – who’s the goofy one, who enjoys the cuddles, who does the best “model” face. The more relaxed and natural you are together, the better your photos will be. These sessions generally run about an hour.

The Return: 40+ fully edited images with a print release up to 8×10 and online photo gallery (will recommend printers)

The Investment: $200*
*For extended family or groups more than 8, add $100

Newborn Session

The Setup: For Newborn Sessions, we will meet in your home. I’ve been there, done that, and I know that the last thing a new mom wants to do is to haul your new baby and all your stuff to someone else’s house or studio. Plus, the comfort of your own home helps everyone to be more comfortable and natural in the photos. Newborn Sessions are best done within the first 7-10 days after birth – basically when that snuggly little baby still drifts farrrrr into sleepy town.

The Story: I’ll come to your home during the day of choice with some extra gear, and we’ll chat until your little one is in a good, settled mood. I’ll take some photos of just him or her, and then we will take some photos of the whole family, siblings too! Pick a room (or two) that has big windows or doors with lots of natural light pouring in. Because of the nature of newborns, these sessions can take 1-2 hours, and we leave room for feeds, diaper changes, etc.

The Return: 50+ fully edited images with a print release up to 8×10 and online photo gallery (will recommend printers)

The Investment = $300*
*Can be combined with a Maternity Session for a $50 discount

Fresh 48 Session

The Setup: Taken in the first 48 hours of your new baby’s arrival, Fresh 48 is a low key version of newborn photos. They are taken in the hospital with family and friends if you would like.

The Story: Fresh 48 photo sessions are a new way to remember your squishy little newborn in those first few days. These photos are generally taken in the hospital (unless you have a home birth or head home earlier than that). Remember the room, the gifts, the footprints, the weight – all those glorious first moments of your newborns life.

The Return: 30+ fully edited images with a print release up to 8×10 and online photo gallery (will recommend printers)

The Investment = $200*
*Can be combined with a Maternity Session for a $50 discount

Milestone Sessions

The Setup: Milestone Sessions can be at your location of choice, and they can even take place before or after a birthday party. Milestones include birthdays, significant school events, etc.

The Story: Milestone Sessions tell the story of a significant time in someone’s life, such as your little one’s first birthday. You can get creative with how you portray this milestone, whether that’s through props or specific outfits (ie balloons, smash cake, graduation cap and gown, etc.)

The Return: 30+ fully edited images with a print release up to 8×10 and online photo gallery (will recommend printers)

The Investment = $200*

Paparazzi Session

The Setup: Location of your choice within 20 mile radius of Indianapolis, including your home if you’d like.

The Story: Paparazzi sessions are exactly as they sound – they’re me trying to sneak around unnoticed while you and your family do your thing. The idea behind a Paparazzi session is to really capture the action. This can look like a number of things – the first time your kids get ice cream, baking cookies together at home, walking around a park, etc. It’s new experiences you want to capture, or favorite traditions you never want to forget. These sessions run about an hour.

The Return: 50+ fully edited images with a print release up to 8×10 and online photo gallery (will recommend printers)

The Investment: $200

Maternity Session

The Setup: Maternity Sessions are preferably outside with natural light, or in your home in an area that has lots of light. I can help with suggestions of locations. These sessions can include your spouse and other children as well.

The Story: Maternity Sessions help you to remember the beauty of your pregnancy belly in the midst of all those trips to the bathroom and back aches! These sessions are best done between 30-34 weeks when your belly is big enough to be obvious but before you’re so uncomfortable that you don’t want to get out of your sweats. We can work around those dates, however. Wear what you’re comfortable in, but anything that shows of the shape of your belly will make for some great photos.
