All packages can be done in-studio or on location. For the purposes of traveling to on-location shoots, my starting point is Thurmont, Maryland, and travel expenses will be calculated using Google maps starting at the default town center, at the rates described below.
Travel expenses are included with your package for all shoots within Frederick County, Maryland. Other locations within 50 miles of Thurmont, MD, please add $75.00. Anywhere beyond that, $4.00/mile one way.
Add professional make-up and hair to any package for $175.00, or, if you prefer to achieve your own best look, feel free to bring your own or arrive already made up!
All packages are scheduled for up to 2 hours. Additional time can be included at $60.00 per hour, prorated at 15 minute intervals. Please note that I cannot prorate sessions that run under the allotted 2 hours.
Please note: the number of edited images offered with each package reflects an average number of images I've been able to offer with past sessions. It is not a guaranteed minimum. Each session is different, and the dynamics of each shoot will dictate how many total images are included.
All packages include the following:
Up to 2 hours (*newborn sessions are 4 hours).
Unlimited* outfits/poses (*within the time constraints of your session).
Up to 2 locations (optional).
5 to 30 images on CD.
One 8x10 framed image of the client's choice.
All other prints are priced a la carte. Ask me for a personalized quote!
Engagement: The decision to marry is a big one, and I can capture the beauty and excitement of this first step down the road to your new life together.
Boudoir: Maybe you're looking for a unique and sexy gift for that special someone, or you just want to do something special for yourself. My boudoir shoots might be just the thing to make anyone look and feel like a professional model. I take a respectful, relaxed approach to these shoots to make your shoot as special and fun as it can be. Male and female clients welcome for boudoir shoots. I can provide same-gender assistants for all clients upon request (assistants are included in package prices).
Bring a friend for a double-session discount (or shoot together in one extended shoot): $275.00 each. Couples can shoot together at the extended bring-a-friend rate.
Maternity: Pregnancy and childbirth are among the most dynamic and beautiful examples of the miracle of life, and as a parent myself, I can work with you to make your growing family shine. You’re welcome to schedule anytime during your pregnancy, but the 34-36 week time-frame tends to be best for photographs.
***Add siblings/father for NO EXTRA COST!
Individual and Family Portraits: It’s not easy getting the whole family together at the same time, but when you do, why not celebrate it with a portrait session? Family sessions can even be broken down into smaller groups on a photo-by-photo basis.

All sessions are offered with an optional custom digital background (green/blue screen session) for an additional $50.00.
