CHILDREN & FAMILY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

I love interacting and working with children, and I love connecting with parents. Mostly, I love capturing moments and images of families that define and archive what life is like. Families are constantly growing and changing, from one week to the next things can look so different. I love that I get to photograph families over and over again, getting to record those changes, and watch families and children grow.

A family session with me is $600. ($300 nonrefundable deposit due at the time of booking.)

Your family session includes the session itself which usually lasts about two hours, an online digital gallery of your hand-edited images, downloadable files and printing rights of those images, and access to professional grade prints through ProDPI. This rate includes photography of immediate family only.

MATERNITY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

I absolutely love shooting pregnancy portraits. As the mom of two darling girls, I’ve had my own experiences with pregnancy. I remember that the pregnancies felt so long, but when I look back now they seem so, so short. I treasure my maternity portraits. When doing maternity photos I love to photograph your growing belly and I strive to capture the special intimacy that you share with your baby. I’m comfortable shooting everything from outdoor portraits to indoor nudes depending on what you wish to capture about this unique time. Pregnancy varies for everyone in it’s challenges and it’s joys but no matter what your individual pregnancy experience has been I love having the opportunity to photograph your growing belly. 30-36 weeks is an ideal time to photograph your pregnancy. This rate includes photography of immediate family only.

A maternity session with me is $450. ($225 nonrefundable deposit due at the time of booking.)

Your maternity session includes the session itself which usually lasts about an hour and a half, an online digital gallery of your hand-edited images, downloadable files and printing rights of those images, and access to professional grade prints through ProDPI.

BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY

Birth photography is very personal and I can completely understand why someone would hesitate to have such an intense, personal, often humbling event photographed. So, rather than simply explaining my style of photography, I thought I would start by sharing a little bit about my experience with birth photography. My first experience to birth photography was when I was when my first daughter was born. My sister, who is also a photographer, photographed that birth, and the birth of my second daughter. The photos she took are some of my most treasured belongings. To have that time captured: the laughter before things got really hard, the depth of labor, the support of my wonderful husband, the first breath, the first feeding… those images are so precious to me. I do not look pretty in these pictures, the light at the hospital didn’t allow for perfect exposure, but they have frozen small, wondrous, once-in-a-lifetime moments that changed my world in the most marvelous way.

As with all of my photography, I use natural light, whatever available light that might be, which can often mean that the photos are grainy and soft; especially with night, hospital births. But these images aren’t about perfection, they are about telling a story in a sensitive, tangible way so that you have a way to look back on something extraordinary that you did.

Birth photography with me is $1500. ($600 nonrefundable deposit due at the time of booking, payment in full due 1 week prior to your due date (so I don’t have to bug you about it while you’re adjusting to life with your new arrival.))

Birth photography includes coverage during active labor, until the arrival of your baby, and for some time after until things are settled and you are ready for rest. In total you will have about 4-6 hours of coverage. I only offer birth coverage at Hood River Memorial Hospital or home births in the area, and I guarantee coverage from 36 weeks on. Please contact me so we can talk about more details! Also included is an online digital gallery of your hand-edited images, downloadable files and printing rights of those images, and access to professional grade prints through ProDPI. This rate includes photography of immediate family only.

MORNING AFTER PHOTOGRAPHY

I love coming into a hospital room in the first 24-48 hours after a new baby is born. There is something so extraordinary about those first hours. Usually these images include your swaddled newborn, nursing session, friends visiting, stamping their footprints, filling out their birth certificate, and learning the ropes with your new arrival.

Morning After sessions with me are $350. (For these sessions I don’t ask for a deposit and I don’t guarantee my availability. I ask that you let me know your due date, when you go into labor, and when your baby has arrived, and I do my best to keep that time free and be available for you during your time at the hospital.)

Your morning after session includes the session itself which usually lasts about an hour, an online digital gallery of your hand-edited images, downloadable files and printing rights of those images, and access to professional grade prints through ProDPI. This rate includes photography of immediate family only.

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

Newborn portrait sessions are my absolute favorite. I love having the privilege to photograph a baby in it’s first days of life. There is nothing more wonderful and more special than capturing portraits of the newest member of your family. Whether they are your firstborn or you are adding to your little tribe, I love being present to capture sweet and simple moments. I spent 10+ years as a nanny, and am the mother of two girls, so I am very sensitive to the experience of having a newborn. I know it can be a little overwhelming and you probably won’t be feeling your best and most beautiful, but when you look back on your photos years from now you won’t see the spit up in your hair or the dirty laundry and diapers on the floor by your bed; what you will see is the magic that hangs in the air when you first bring your baby home.

Newborn sessions with me are $600. ($300 nonrefundable deposit due at the time of booking. I “book” your session by placing your due date on my calendar and ask that you inform me when once your baby has arrived, then we schedule a time within two weeks of your baby’s birth date.)

Your newborn session includes the session itself which lasts about for a minimum of an hour and a half. Newborn sessions often take a while with spit up and diaper changes and nursing! We can chat more about the details in person by phone and email about the flow of these special sessions. Also included is an online digital gallery of your hand-edited images, downloadable files and printing rights of those images, and access to professional grade prints through ProDPI. This rate includes photography of immediate family only.

ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

I can’t say enough about how much I love shooting elopements. The beautiful, quiet, unique locations here in the Columbia Gorge appeal to many couples who are choosing to have very small, planned elopements. The elopements I’ve photographed have ranged in size, differed in planning, honored different traditions, and have been as individual as the two people who are exchanging vows. But they have all been wonderfully intimate, joyous, memorable events. My style of photography, and my style of photographing, fits well with elopements. I love to blend in and photograph moments that encapsulate your special celebration.

An elopement shoot with me is $900. ($450 nonrefundable deposit due at the time of booking.)

This includes photography coverage for two hours for the couple and up to 6 guests, an online digital gallery of your hand-edited images, downloadable files and printing rights of those images, and access to professional grade prints through ProDPI.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

I specialize in shooting small, daytime weddings. My focus is on capturing intimate, meaningful moments and details in addition to the “classic” wedding moments. I shoot using all natural light, which gives my images an authentic, in-the-moment feeling. My style of shooting allows me to blend in (I’ve often been asked if I’m a wedding guest or friend of the family), which in turn allows me to photograph special moments that I might otherwise miss or interrupt. If your timing and my style sound like the perfect fit, send me an email so we can talk more about the photography for your wedding in the Columbia Gorge.

Wedding photography with me is $2500. (50% nonrefundable deposit due at the time of booking.)

This includes photography coverage for four hours (additional hours available at $300/hr) an online digital gallery of your hand-edited images, downloadable files and printing rights of those images, and access to professional grade prints through ProDPI.

HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PORTRAITS

For the past few years my focus has been mainly on photographing maternity, newborn, and family sessions, but I love photographing high school seniors too. It’s such an exciting time and I love hearing about your plans and interests. Capturing images of you, the way you see yourself, is what I find the most enjoyable. I love the creativity that comes up during senior sessions and am open to all ideas!

A senior session with me is $450. ($225 nonrefundable deposit due at the time of booking.)

Your senior session includes the session itself which usually lasts about two hours, an online digital gallery of your hand-edited images, downloadable files and printing rights of those images, and access to professional grade prints through ProDPI. This rate includes photography of the senior student only.
