I'd love to hop on a phone call and nail down your date(s) and answer all of your questions. We will also talk about wardrobe and shoot location and pick anything you want to wear from my client closet. I require a non-refundable $95 retainer to hold your date.

frequently asked questions


Do you provide props for newborns?

I will bring everything necessary for a full newborn shoot including swaddles, headbands, props, and anything else we have discussed beforehand according to your unique style. Don't worry if your house or apartment is small or has poor lighting, I've done it all!
You can also come to my studio in Lampasas for the full range of options!

Can you come to me or a location closer to me?

For newborns, I usually come to your home, where baby feels most secure, and you can relax. It can be hard to get a newborn and all thier stuff out the door! For any other session I prefer to shoot at my ranch, but I am happy to accommodate you at any location, especially for my mommas-to-be who can't travel far. If I'm travelling to you, investment starts at $800 with 30 digital images and client closet and prop access.

Will you pose me?

I do a hybrid of posed/candid photos. I will tell you how to pose, depending on how much direction you need or don't need and let you fall out of the pose naturally as you laugh and interact with me and your family.

How does the client closet work?

All of my clients have access to my client closet. You can browse through the closet at my studio in Lampasas. Separate from the client closet is my styling service, Style and Select. Access to this tool will help you pick out a cohesive wardrobe for the whole family.

How long do your sessions last?

My shoots are up to 90 minutes for outdoor family or maternity and my newborn shoots range from 2-3 hours, including setup and family photos.

What are your prices?

If you come to the ranch, your minimum investment will be $500. If I come to you, your minimum investment will be $800. You can always purchase more images, artwork, and heirloom albums after the shoot straight through your gallery!

What products do you offer?

Custom albums made with museum-grade high quality materials made to last 100 years. My wall art offerings include glossy metal, framed prints, canvases, and other custom gifts such as ornaments and magnets.

How fast will I get my photos back?

You can come and view your proofs at my studio within 2 weeks of your shoot. After you purchase your selections, I will make final edits for your approval within 1 week. Any products ordered should arrive at my studio within 1 week of ordering.

Keeping up with me isn't easy, but when you subscribe to my newsletter you'll get educational material like how to pose with confidence and tips on taking amazing pictures of your kids! Not to mention first dibs on limited sessions like greenhouse minis and buffalo sessions.
