Some Common Questions


How much does a family session cost?

FAMILY SESSION  $400.00 + WA State sales tax.

A $75 deposit is due at time of booking to secure your session date.

*This session is designed for parents and their children.  If you’d like to add extended family members contact me for pricing.*

How long is a session?

Your session fee includes the location of choice and roughly an hour (give or take) of session time.   You may purchase an additional hour for $100.

Where do we do the session?

I have some tried and true locations that I can suggest.  It depends on the look you are going for whether it be an old barn, an urban feel or in the beauty of the PNW.  We can also do the session in your own home or yard.  I am always open to new locations, so let me know if you have an idea.

How many images will I receive?

You will receive a minimum of 65 high resolution digital images (black & white and color) in your own private gallery.  You may print or share as you desire. 

I also include 10 hand-picked 5x5 prints because I want you to have something tangible.

From your gallery you have the option to order professional, archival quality prints, canvases or albums.

What happens if it rains?

It happens, we live in the Pacific Northwest.  But… we have a few options.  

-I know of some locations that provide coverage.  

-We can do our session in your home.  

–If all else fails, we can reschedule.

Leading up to our session date I will keep an eye on the forecast. I will be in contact with you to discuss our options and make plans.

What should we wear?

I get asked all the time about what is best to wear.  Coming up with ideas can feel overwhelming.  But don’t stress, here are a few tips.

I always tell moms to choose their outfit first, then coordinate the rest of the family to her.

Don’t be afraid to be dressy.  Flowy dresses add movement to a photo.

Girls in dresses are adorable.  Alternate patterns and solids.  One in a pattern and one in a solid.

Neutrals look great.

Layering looks great.

Accessories are fun:  scarves, necklaces, hats etc.

No logos and no neon colors.

If someone is in a plaid or pattern, then coordinate solids to them.

Don’t over think it-have fun with it.  And feel free to ask me if you have any questions.
