"I love pictures. The best thing about them is that they never change... even when the people in them do. Children have the unforgivable habit of growing up."
WHAT SESSION OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE
A Mini Session is approximately thirty to forty five minutes in length depending on pace of session and number of images achieved. Your choice of twenty images from a private online gallery is included at a price of $135.00. Prints and other items may be purchased from this gallery as well. Mini sessions may be held indoors or outdoors (weather permitting) at the studio or at one of our selected park or beach locations, within two miles of our studio
A Full Session is approximately one hour to ninety minutes long depending on session pace and number of images achieved, and includes a digital download of thirty images from a private online gallery. The extra time allows us to take individual shots of children or to grab some playful, candid shots. It also gives us time to add a cake smash to a traditional yearly milestone session (details below). The fee for this session is $200.00. As with the mini session, clients may choose to be in the studio or outdoors. We will travel almost anywhere, so if there is a special location that you think would make a perfect backdrop or that has special significance to your family, we can meet you there!
Please add an additional charge of $10 per additional subject for groups of more than four. Pets are welcomed and are charged as additional subjects if the group exceeds four, see above. A travel fee may apply to sessions outside a five mile radius of our Salisbury studio.
The Cake Smash is a popular way to celebrate a child's first year. This feature may be added to a full or mini session for an additional $20.00 ($15.00 if you supply the cake). This includes helium filled balloons in your choice of color and a small birthday cake for the birthday child to explore. Be prepared for a messy but happy session. We'll clean up the props and the site, but the child is all yours!
We will photograph children as they present themselves, making every effort to show them at their best. Occasionally children are uncooperative, or are simply unwilling to behave in the way their parents envisioned. In these cases we will proceed with the session employing psychology to work around the issue as much as possible. In any case, fees for the session are still due in full for the session booked as noncompliance issues are outside the photographer's control.

Most clients spend an additional $200 to $300 on prints, photo books and wall art ordered directly from our website (although there is no obligation to do so).
