my philosophy

It incredibly important to me that you enjoy your photo session as much as you will cherish the finished artwork. Each photo session is a special opportunity to celebrate your family as you are at that given moment, and I aim to capture images that will later transport you back to this time. After your session, we will carefully select your favorite images and transform them from pictures into heirloom-quality artwork, ready for the spotlight in your home.

basic session: $250

An enjoyable and fun session in the Chicagoland area or Charlotte, NC. The sessiong will last anywhere between an hour and half and two hours. Just show up, and be yourselves. I'll guide you through the rest, and in the end you won't believe it's over.

travel session: $300*

This includes everything that the basic session includes, except that I travel to you... anywhere outside the Chicagoland or Charlotte, NC areas! The sessiong will last anywhere between an hour and half and two hours. Just show up, and be yourselves. I'll guide you through the rest, and in the end you won't believe it's over.

*Additional travel fees may apply.

lifestyle session: $350

A lifestlye session is a collection of the extraordinary, ordinary moments that I wrote about for TFFT here. This session offers a glimpse into the beauty and many blessings of your daily life. It is twice as long as a basic session, and it includes everything the basic session includes plus the goodness of your everyday. Trust me. It's worth it.

After basic and lifestyle sessions we will meet for a proofing session. This is when we bring your photographs to life as we design personal artwork for your walls! Pieces are sold a la carte. Prints start at $35 and wall art starts at $180. Typically, client art collections average around $2,000, at which point I include a complimentary CD with all the high resolution files and the Rights to Reproduce. Please email me for the full pricelist or with any questions.
