The Details

The session fee begins at $200 (excluding travel expenses). This includes ALL photos taken during the shoot delivered on a USB drive in a downloadable archive file to the client– This way, you will have the digital images to use in whatever way you choose. The images (more than 35 online edited photos) will also be viewable and made available for purchase within one week of the session Here you will be able to choose if you want to order the images directly to your door. I am more than happy to help give recommendations and work with you to choose the best prints.

Please note that there is no set session length! The goal is to get the most candid, natural shots. However, typically this is achieved within 1 to 2 hours. Sometimes the best shots come toward the end of the session when the subject becomes more relaxed and truly themselves. Let’s have fun creating beautiful images together! Making pictures is the most enjoyable part of my job. It is important for me to ensure you and your child(ren) have a good time too!  —anything goes when it comes to capturing your happy life.

I like to think of the world as my studio, so I work 100% on location. The possibilities are endless, so if you can’t think of a favorite spot you want to head to, I have many suggestions that we can discuss. I come to you or we meet at a mutually agreed upon spot. Free to move around, get comfortable and just be you. {outside of Chicago transportation a travel fee may be added to the session fee–for any questions please don’t hesitate to ask-!}

There are a few basic guidelines that are good to keep in mind about dress, while still leaving a wide range of possibilities… Solid colors or a small print pattern are preferable. Textures such as a fleece, cable knit, and denim show up nicely on film as well. Classic looks usually include jeans or khakis paired with a solid colored top. Simple items such as a hat, or a flower, or a favorite toy/prop create a wonderful added interest for your portrait. With children usually 3 and younger, wardrobe changes are popular so bring a few different options and we can be creative together!
