Your pricing is out of my  budget, when are your mini sessions?

Under $500 or under session-  $100 Retainer.  Anything over $500 is 1/3 the cost of the session.  

No.  Film is analog film photography in 35mm or 120 medium format.

Families up to 6 people are included in the price.  Each extra person is $25.  

1 dog is included in the fee if meeting at a location.  More than one pet will be an extra fee of $25.  If your location is at your home, then you are allowed have as many pets in a lifestyle session.  

Yes, I do travel.  I do charge a travel fee to cover my flights, transportation fees, and lodging.   A minimum must be met for me to agree to travel to your destination.  For example  a session in  Sun Valley, Los Angeles, or Seattle must meet the minimum of $1400 and the cost to travel is  $600.    If I happen to be already visiting your city, then there would be no travel fee added.  Send me a message for a price quote here.  

$75 per roll of film for Portrait Sessions.
All lifestyle session include atleast 2 rolls of film.

I use Pro Film such as Kodak Portra 160, 400, and 800.  Other stocks maybe used depending on the situation.  

Yes, I can, but I would back up with digital for safety measures.  Portraits would start at $800 an hour.  Lifestyle sessions would start at $1000 for the first 1.5 hours.    

Yes. $600 for 1.5 hours.  

I'm sorry to hear that.  Photography is a big investment.  Fortunately, Mini Sessions are offered a few times a year.  Sessions are most frequent in the Fall and sometimes in the Spring.  If you would like to know more about dates, please sign up for my newsletter below.
