How many images are included in the session fee?
No images are included in your session fee. Session fees are for my time and talent to plan, shoot and create your images. Some session fees include access to my client wardrobe and hair & makeup by a licensed cosmetologist.
Do you offer studio sessions?
At this time I only offer outdoor sessions.
Do you offer newborn sessions?
Do you offer wedding coverage?
Do you sell digital images so I can make my own prints?
Yes! I offer digital collections with a USB that include your print release and a complimentary professionally created, archival quality, piece of artwork to ensure you take home something tangible to display in your home. See The Artwork for more details.
Can I schedule a shoot on a weekend?
Yes! At this time I will schedule a shoot weekdays and weekends, including Sundays.
What props do you provide?
Aside from my client wardrobe, I will provide simple, timeless props when requested. I prefer the less is more approach when it comes to props. My style of photography leans towards more of a timeless feel where the subject(s) are your main focus with beautiful scenery surrounding them.
Do you provide online galleries for me to see and order images instead of having to meet in person to select & purchase what I love?
No. All galleries are presented in person with samples of my products for you to see and touch while deciding on what images and products you’d like to order. I also offer to meet at your home when its convenient for you & your family.
When do you schedule your Maternity shoots?
I like to schedule between 30-36 weeks but if you have a high risk pregnancy we will schedule earlier.
When do you recommend scheduling a styled children session?
For younger children I recommend April-October when its warmer unless your child doesn’t mind the cold. It is also recommended that you try to book your session at least 3 weeks before your wanting to have the photo shoot. This way we can plan & design your child’s shoot and I have enough time to order in any special props or outfits for the shoot.
What should we wear?
Upon booking your session with me, I will send you my “What to Wear” guide that includes styling tips to help keep your portraits timeless and links to my favorite clothing boutiques.
When is the best time of year to schedule my shoot?
This all depends on how you want your images to look. We are blessed with all the seasons here in Iowa, so I always ask my clients which season offers the colors & textures that will compliment their home decor best? Do you want beautiful flowers, fall colors, golden rich browns or snow in your images?
I have made these slides to help show you what the scenery offers in my favorite locations for each month of the year. Click images to enlarge.
