Mini Session pricing and policies 2016

15-minute mini-session: I’ve combined my 10-min and 20-minute mini-session options, done away with the $50 session fee in the 20-minute mini-session, and now offer a super simple 15-minute mini session for $250. This session includes 15 minutes of photography time (1-2 goals) and 10 digital files that I choose for you and transmit to you via Dropbox within 2 weeks of your session. No muss, no fuss…a perfect session for a family on a tighter budget and schedule.

30-minute mini-session: My 30-minute mini-session remains basically the same as years past…it’s still a $500 fee, but this year I’ve made it much simpler. You can select the digital option and I’ll choose my favorite 20 images and transmit them to you via Dropbox within 2 weeks of your session OR you can select the full-service print option, and you get to meet with me 2-3 weeks after your session to view your pictures and order your full-service prints, using your entire $500 pre-pay toward your order!


**SCHEDULE UPDATE** The October 2nd afternoon session has been moved from Holmes Lake to OMAHA. I’ll be shooting on that Sunday afternoon at a park in west Omaha, the exact park is still to be determined! Email me for details.

“Pride and Prejudice” themed shoot makes the Top 10!

I’m super excited to announce that out of my three different Winter themed photo shoots that my SEEN team did in November, one of them was selected as a top 10 entry to be featured nationally on the We are the Seen website, and of the other two entries that didn’t make the top ten, one image from each theme was selected to be featured on the website as well in the “On the SEEN” gallery (basically the runners-up). I’m super proud of my team for braving the cold and windy conditions, helping me set up the “snowy path” and all of the unknowns that went along with that, and being willing to really get out their comfort zones to allow Claudia and Lindsay to take the hair and makeup concepts farther than ever gone before.

So here’s a shout-out to Ben, Jake, Amanda & Erica for their participation in my Pride and Prejudice/blustery winter themed session. They looked amazing despite cold temps and crazy wind, and helped bring to life one some of my very favorite literary characters. This theme won a spot in the top 10.

Julia, Jala and Abigail participated in the “Hazy Shade of Winter” concept session, which drew inspiration from 80’s music videos and girl bands. Claudia and Lindsay did an amazing job on their hair and makeup, and the girls all nailed their outfits.

Sadie and Kayla went the farthest out on the limb for the “Frozen” themed session. They spent hours helping me mix and haul fake snow then had to sit for hours of hair and makeup before we finally made it out to shoot. Only one image of the four…one of Kayla alone…made it into the On the SEEN gallery, but I was proud of all of the images submitted, and just loved getting creative and pushing the envelope with all three of the Winter themed sessions.
