Let's go on an adventure!

Perfect for bigger adventures where we can really get lost and create a whole day of fun to explore a state/national park or do your favorite activity as a family together (kayaking? paddleboarding? snowshoeing? camping? building a giant snowman? rock climbing? whale watching? anything you want!).

Also amazing for a casual morning or afternoon at home session, where we document what real life looks like. Maybe, making breakfast then getting ready and going to a park or to the lake, grabbing coffee and donuts and then coming home to play before nap. Any slice of your already-set routines or traditions that you want to remember forever.

  1. All session fees are due when booking your session. Because they reserve your date + time they are nonrefundable, however, I know that life is unpredictable (especially with kids!) so your session fee is 100% transferrable to a different date if we have to reschedule for any reason.

  2. All sessions can expect an online gallery with 20-40 proofs per hour of shooting uploaded within 30 days of your session and a discount on any prints + products ordered within the first two weeks that your gallery is up.

  3. Proofs are for previewing in your gallery only and may not be downloaded or saved in any way.

  4. Digital files that are purchased in your gallery are for personal use only and may not be used commercially without further licensing.

  5. I occasionally license my photos for use in commercial + editorial campaigns (magazines/advertising/etc) and I offer complimentary digital files for any families that want their photos to be included (5 files for 10 in 10 sessions, 10 files for 30-minute sessions, 20 files for 2-hour sessions and 50 files for 4-hour sessions!). If you'd like to take part in this just let me know and I'll send you a model release for the images from your session and a coupon code to use in your gallery!

  6. Every once in a while I also offer super quick + super fun 10-minute photo sessions for kiddos in the studio for $150 that I call 10 in 10 sessions. These usually sell out pretty quickly, so sign up for the newsletter on the contact page to be the first to know about the next one.
