TO CAPTURE YOUR SPECIAL DAY WITH ELEGANCE AND LOVE

WEDDINGS

Weddings

We strive to capture real moments. Those moments where you are embracing your new husband tight, where you are holding back tears dancing with your father, or jumping for joy with your bridal party once the ceremony has just let out. We love to capture life and tell your story in all its greatness. 

Starting at $2200, we offer three different packages, all including myself and my second shooter (my mother!) and digital images. We also travel! Please shoot us an e-mail for our Pricing Guide.

LETS WORK TOGETHER

Weddings

You just got engaged! Let's capture this special time together for some beautiful, romantic images that you can use for social media, prints, save the dates and more! 

When to book
Consider when you need to send out your Save the Dates by, and try and schedule your at least 4 weeks before that. 

Location
Think about places that you guys as a couple connect at or would feel natural in. If you have a specific spot like a fire station, park or first date memory, that could make a great location. Otherwise, a few common settings are Great Plains Nature Center, Old Town Wichita, Eastborough or Sedgwick County Park. 

Length and time
The sessions can last up to an 1 1/2 hours, and we can travel up to 2 different locations. The best time for these sessions is sunset. 

Outfits
I encourage to think about your own style and what brings out your personality most. I suggest 2 outfits, try to coordinate your colors with each other, avoid large logos and don't be afraid of patterns. Also, accessories and layers look great! 

Posing
Never done this before? Thought so ;) It's my job to help you feel comfortable and pose naturally. DO NOT STRESS. We will make sure you both have lots of fun and walk away feeling great!

Post Processing
Roughly 2 weeks after your engagement session, you will receive an online gallery with all your high resolution images and the release of rights, so you may download, share and print as you wish!

Engagement sessions are included in two of our wedding packages, but if you'd like an engagement session alone, prices are as follows. 
 
45 minutes= $300 with 35 digital images + release
1 hour= $400 with 50 digital images + release
Additional digital images a la carte= $5 per image and $4 for every image after 5

Engagement sessions are not only a wonderful time to capture some beautiful images of just the two of you, but also a perfect time for us to get to know each other better for the big day!

Location
Location is completely up to you. What setting do you feel most comfortable in? Wheat fields? An urban setting? Or maybe a football stadium or dance studio? If you don’t have a specific place in mind, we have suggestions we can give. 

Length and Cost
Sessions can be however long you want them to be. They can be at one location, two locations, on one day or two separate days. Regardless, all pricing is hourly of $300 an hour with 40 edited digital images and release. We require a $50 deposit up front to secure your spot, and the remainder is due on the day of. After receiving your online gallery, you may print as you wish or order through us. 

What should I wear?
Wear what you are comfortable in. However, if you primarily wear T-shirts, please bring at least one nicer outfit (mom and dad will appreciate it!) One to two outfits per location is a good rule of thumb. If you need ideas, visit our Pinterest board! 

Props
Feel free to personalize your session with any items. Examples: books for a big reader; shoes for a dancer; pets for an animal lover; flag for a family token; anything that describes you!

Can I bring people to the session?
Yes! Some like to bring their mom, dad or even a friend. Friends can sometimes get the best laughs out of you and make it more fun too! And if you have a boyfriend or girlfriend, yes they can hop in a couple too ;)

What if I don't know how to pose?
You don’t have to worry about that; that's our job. You will warm up and we will make it fun- promise!

Seniors

Seniors are one of my favorite sessions! Senior year is when you are on top of the world, about to venture into a new beginning and I want to help you document this time at its fullest!

What I love is being able to witness seniors come to life during their session as they realize just how beautiful and graceful they really are! No senior has prior modeling experience. That is what I'm here for! 

I will teach you all my modeling tips and tricks, so that by the end of your session, you will feel like a pro. We will talk about location, your outfits and any desires, so I can get you exactly what you are looking for. I also have a couple of make up artists I recommend to really help give the whole experience!

Seniors

LETS WORK TOGETHER

Our newborn sessions are 1.5-2 hours long, held in our studio,40 digitals and start at $500 (ask for our life package guide!) If you decide to book, a 20% deposit will be required and you will be penciled in around your due date. Then let us know when baby arrives so we can fit you in ASAP! We aim to schedule within the first 10 days of baby’s life. That is when they are the sleepiest!

Order of events
Newborn sessions typically involve three parts in this order: close ups, props and sometimes family.

Boys
Babies who are circumcised typically take about 7 days to heal; try to schedule session between 8-10 days after his birth

Preparation
Please feed them roughly 30 minutes before your session! "Snacks" are totally welcome. If they take a PACI, please bring it! Other things to pack include diapers, lots of wipes, burp rags, extra clothes and maybe a sleeper to easily undress them when they arrive. 

Outfits
It is most common for baby to be nude. I have a variety of wraps, hats, headbands and even pants outfits for them to wear, and they will be nice and comfortable with our space heater.

Safety
We want to make sure baby is safe the ENTIRE time, so be prepared to stay close as a spotter during props. We will always keep them at a safe distance, with eyes on them and hands on when necessary.

The mess
There will be bodily fluids! I always tell my clients, if I go home without a bag full of soaked blankets, that is rare! Don't feel bad!

Temperature
We usually keep a space heater on baby, so it can get a quite warm in the studio. You might consider wearing layers.

Editing
Jaundice, baby acne and scratches are common in babies. Don’t worry, we will work our magic to make your baby look beautiful! You will then receive your private online gallery of 30 images within 2 weeks.

Props
We have a wide selection of baskets, buckets, backdrops, etc. for you to choose from, but I always welcome special props as well!

Newborns

I cherish newborn sessions. This time when they are so small will never be replicated. I want to help document how precious and beautiful these new little humans are. All newborn sessions are held in my studio downtown, where sessions usually last 1.5-2 hours long, and start at $500 (ask for our life package guide!)

Family

Family is everything and little ones grow so fast! In my family and kids sessions, I like to capture a mixture of posed and candid shots in my family sessions, so you get your typical smiling shot but also some FUN "real life" shots as well!
 
Location
I encourage choosing a place that you feel comfortable in! If you need a list of suggestions, I have lots!

Poses
There is no limit to poses or the amount of people brought to a family session. The cost of your session all depends on time. But keep in mind, rushing tends to cause stress, so note my suggested session lengths below. 

Session length
For families of 2-3 members, I suggest a 30 minute session. For over three family members, it's safe to allow 45-60 minutes. 

Props
Feel free to bring any props you want included in your session. Example items would be a rocking chair, a special quilt or stuffed animal!

Post Processing
Following your session, I usually post a couple teasers on Facebook or Instagram, and then you will receive your image gallery within two weeks.
