SESSIONS

For families and children, our Portrait Sessions are unique in that we have ONE session which includes your session AND a generous print credit, as well as select high-res images from your session.  This makes it easy for you and takes the guesswork out of trying to decide what session to choose.  Our base session includes 1.5 hours inside our studio or on location. Looking for something a little simpler?  We offer 30-minute mini-sessions too!

Our Newborn sessions include up to 3 hours in studio to allow for a relaxed, no-rush session to make you and baby feel comfortable.  This includes time for feeding, changing etc.  Our Celebrate Life Series features four sessions in one year and comes complete with an album highlighting your favorite images from each session.  This is typically based on the first year:  Maternity/Newborn; 3 months; 6 months; and 1 year.

We offer two maternity sessions - Basic and Artistic. Our Artistic session is great for moms-to-be who want to capture timeless, heirloom images that will be cherished for years to come.  They are personalized to fit your specific personality and character, and include extra time to set the scene.

 

ABOUT OUR PRINTS

Any prints you order will be professionally artworked (retouched) by our trained staff. They are printed on 100-year, museum quality archive photo paper.  Heirloom prints are available in both standard and square sizes.  All 11x14 and larger wall prints are sprayed with a protective coating to ensure years of enjoyment.  

Portrait Collections start at around $400 and are available during your viewing session. Loose prints are available for purchase online after your viewing session.  

 

WANT MORE INFORMATION?

 Call or come by for our current pricing catalog which includes session pricing, print pricing, portrait collections, and our product offerings.  Of course, this is not a comprehensive list of everything we offer, so if there is something you want and don't see, just ask!  

 

SCHEDULING

 Once you receive our Portrait Catalog and have reviewed our session options, please call the studio to schedule.  Please have your credit card ready, as all session fees are payable at the time of scheduling.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

DURING YOUR SESSION

 Please arrive about 10 minutes prior to your session to get settled in our dressing room and have time for last minute hair/makeup checks.   Please arrive dressed in the clothing you want to be photographed in.  If this is a child/baby session and you are doing multiple outfit changes, please have them ready and lay them out in our dressing room for quick and easy changing. 

 

While we won't restrict your clothing changes, keep in mind that we often schedule sessions back to back, and therefore your session must end at it's scheduled time. The more outfits you need to change in and out of, the less time we will have for capturing beautiful portraits! 

Most importantly, know that your session will be FUN!!  With Melissa, you can relax and be yourself. She's great at making you and your child feel at ease and knows just the right angles and lighting to make everyone look their best.  

 

AFTER YOUR SESSION

 After your session, your image gallery will be posted online within 2 weeks.  We will call and/or email you with the link and access information once they are posted.  We encourage you to look through them and pick your favorites.  Then, call the studio to schedule your viewing session where we will help you choose print sizes, explain our products and answer any questions you may have. 

 

PRINT/PRODUCT DELIVERY

 Your loose prints will be ready within 2 weeks.  Albums, framed prints and other specialty items may take 4-6 weeks depending on the product and how quickly you approve your design.

 We will call you when your order is ready and then you can pick up your order at our studio any time during regular business hours, or you can choose to have it shipped to you.
