Session packages are all inclusive and include the following: A pre-session consultation: This is when we have a chance to get acquainted and to discuss in detail how I work, your goals for the session, location preferences, and to answer all those questions you may have. Being a portrait photographer is very personal for me and that’s why I spend extra time with you in order to make a connection. I find that everyone is more relaxed once the actual session takes place when we have our get-acquainted meeting.
The photo session: We will have decided on a few location choices and the date and time of day at the pre-session meeting. I have a number of favorite locations that I like to use but I am open to having you choose a location that has special meaning to you. I will make the final location decision as the date approaches since changing weather can influence that choice. I scout out my locations in advance to eliminate surprises as much as possible. I prefer to schedule sessions 1-2 hours before sunset when the light is most flattering. I combine lifestyle photography with more traditional shots with the goal of making the experience fun and laid back.. I understand that not all family members are always as enthusiastic about having their pictures taken as Mom, so I know the importance of being flexible and working with the mood of the moment and adjusting accordingly. I will take a combination of individual and group iterations.
Editing: I personally edit and cull all the digital images. I may do a bit of minor touchup work, but I don’t make adjustments that look unnatural. Being a perfectionist, I spend time looking closely at each image, so I ask for a full week to have them ready for sharing.
Image presentation: Once I have the initial editing done, I will send you the gallery of images via Dropbox. I will also meet with you in person to go over the images and together we can discuss the need for any additional editing. I prefer to present images in my home where they can be displayed on a large, color calibrated monitor. You will receive a number of 8X10 proofs that I feel are the very best. Once the final editing is done, I will re-send you the high resolution images for you to have for your personal use. If you prefer, I will mail you a thumb drive with the images.

I live on Bainbridge but my price includes travel to other locations in Kitsap County. I am willing to go to other locations and would charge an additional fee in order to cover this. Sessions can be scheduled any time of year. I will reschedule in the event of inclement weather, which usually means rain or predictions of a major storm. I request a 50% payment at the time of the pre-session meeting and the balance at the image review. Prints and mats are available at an extra cost.
