Christmas mini-sessions!

Can you believe Christmas is only 118 days away? Sounds like a lot of days but that is only 17 weekends. Get started on your Christmas shopping early and get your Christmas cards completed by booking a Christmas mini-session in September or October. Here is the deal:


The session is for four individuals but additional time and digital images can be purchased for $10 per person.

This will be the only mini-sessions offered this year so take advantage of the big savings early. My schedule for September and October is booking fast so do not wait to schedule your session. December 3 will be my last session of the year for Christmas photos. Last year I had to turn a lot of people away and I do not like to do that.

Introducing Liesl

Little Liesl has been widely anticipated by friends and family and now she is here. Beautiful, tiny, precious, and with a head full of hair. Through the session I did not even hear her cry, which is amazing for a one week old baby. I had such a great time photographing her today and could not wait to get a sneak peek up for Meg and Matt to see. I hope you enjoy it guys!


She was so full of smiles.

She also had the most amazing eyelashes


Go Dawgs!


Liesl has big sister who adores her. Can you tell?

Can't wait any longer... the pricing is posted!

I am always trying to find new ways to continue the relationships that I start with families who have trusted me to take their photos. I understand that custom photography costs a lot but the value of having a professional photograph of your child outweighs the cost by far. I understand that you would like to have professional photographs your child as much as possible but in these times, it is just not feasible to do it. I wanted to add a new type of session to my price list that would allow families to have their child photographed often during their first year and as many times as they want after that and give them a quality product that they can keep forever.

I am now offering a Basic Digital package to my price list.


That package includes:

45 minute session
one subject
20 images on disk to be printed up to 8x10
You choose one location from three options

Images are edited and then burned on a disk and mailed to your home.

*add on additional subjects for $25 each
You will receive 10 more minutes per individual
*babies must be able to sit up

The Basic Digital is a great deal. You will get 20 digital images that you can print as many times as you want (for personal use and up to an 8x10). That means you can give one to Grandma, Grandpa, your sister, your aunts and uncles, your neighbor, the check out clerk at Kroger, the lady at the park that things your child has the prettiest blue eyes .. endless photos. This package is great for milestone sessions or yearly portraits.

This session works well if you enjoy things to be quick and easy and prefer for me to chose your photos for you. The time period of the session will be 45 minutes and I will pick the 20 images that will be sent to you. I will shoot this type of session with the idea of getting 20 terrific photographs so there will be a limit to how many clothing changes or scenery changes that we can make.

This session is not ideal for newborns or little ones that can not sit on their own. The great thing is, I will continue to offer an Elite Session that allows you to have a studio set up at your home or have an session that allows you more clothing changes, flexibility, and more proofs to choose your portraits from. I have also added an early bird discount that allows you to save money and rewards so that you get free stuff. With Elite sessions I will devote more time to you before, during, and after the session to ensure that you have the photo session and products that you truly want. It will also allow you to have an online gallery to show off to your friends and relatives. You know Aunt Mable wants to see your little sweetheart even though she is several states away. Plus, you still have the option to purchase negatives if you want them.

Which session is for you? Let's chat about it. I am available to tell you more about each session and we can decide together what is right for you.

There is more information on the website : There is also new photos so take a look around. I have even added a question section that describes that two different section in more detail.
