FIND ME ELSEWHERE!
I let you do it, but I'm still here to help.
Just give me a ring if you have questions.
WHAT KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHER ARE YOU? My work has been described as organic, natural, and sentimental with a documentary quality. I combine traditional and documentary photography along with family portraiture to capture genuine images for you to treasure for a lifetime. Imagine your family as fine art. As your photographer, I will provide a generous gallery of images that can be displayed in your home as pieces of art or archived in a custom album to be treasured for generations. These photographs will be an investment in your family history. Images from your session often tell a story, capturing a treasured moment in time. I do not try to make you look perfect, stiff, or unnatural. I am not after that "one" shot with everyone looking at the camera and smiling. Sure, I may get some with everyone looking and smiling, but I promise if I do, it will be because it happened naturally, not because it was forced.
WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD? I am a natural light, on location photographer. Together we will choose the perfect location for your session based on the vibe that you are looking for. Newborn sessions are held at your home or sometimes outdoors weather permitting.
WHEN DO NEWBORN SESSIONS OCCUR? I like to do newborn sessions within the first two weeks of life.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? See PINTREST boards for ideas on what to wear. I always recommend to keep in mind the word coordinate rather than match. Look at your home and your style of designing. Imagine color families such as pastels, neutrals, jewel tones, ect. Steer clear of super bright neons as they can reflect color onto your face and people around you out in the sunlight. Most importantly be comfortable, be yourself, and be ready to have some fun.
WILL I GET MY DIGITAL PHOTOS AFTER THE SHOOT? Photographs grow in value over time and become family treasures. I know the importance of archiving and saving digital images. I offer one simple, all-inclusive collection where you receive all the high resolution digital files delivered via direct download and a print release. A minimum of 60 digital files will be available to you (but usually there are more!), in both color and black and white. I also include a complimentary, pre-designed album from your session. You will also have the option to buy additional prints and boutique products.
WHEN, HOW AND WHERE CAN I ORDER ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AND PRODUCTS? Within four weeks of your shoot, you will receive a link to a private online gallery. You will have one month to order additional products.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHICH IMAGES GO IN MY GALLERY FROM OUR SHOOT? I look carefully at each and every image I capture at your session and hand select the best images. I am looking for images that represent me as an artists and your family, as each is radically unique. I guarantee minimum of 60 images, but there are usually many more included. Lucky you!
HOW FAR OUT ARE YOU BOOKED? I typically book up to 3 months in advance for family, seniors, and newborn/ maternity. If you are interested in newborn portraits, please inquire while you are pregnant. Already delivered? No problem. I try to leave openings in my schedule for last minute newborn sessions.
DO YOU OFFER MINI-SESSIONS? No; mini-sessions are not conducive to my style. Like I said, I am not after that one great shot but rather a collection of images for lifelong appreciation.
HOW MUCH DOES ALL OF THIS COST? My pricing is all-inclusive. You pay one price for ALL of the digital files and printed album. For large groups including several families the cost is $695. For most other groups the total cost is $500 for newborn, seniors, couples, or family sessions, $350 for my petite maternity session (only available when booking with a newborn session). A $200 deposit is due when booking to secure your session date, $250 deposit for the group Family Session.
HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION WITH YOU, LAURA? I am so glad you asked! You can e-mail me directly at email@example.com or via my contact form below.
