So how does it work?


First, you'll book your session.  The session fees are for just that - the session.  Images and prints are separate, so you have the freedom to choose what works best for you - if you'd rather order prints, get high resolution images to print elsewhere, a pretty album for your coffee table, or if you just want some fresh Facebook pictures...  Totally up to you.


Once we have a date established, you'll want to pay your deposit to hold your spot.


Within two weeks of your session you will receive a link to a password-protected online viewing gallery.


From there you can choose the pictures you would like and a package that works best for you.  We can meet up over a coffee, smoothie, or other delicious beverage to go over your album together, or you can do it yourself from the safety of your home, in your pajamas and comfy bunny slippers (I won't judge).


Once you have selected your pictures and place your order, you will receive a link to download your photos for file-sharing by email.  High-res photos (for printing) will be mailed to you on a disc or USB, and/or any prints you have ordered.


Your gallery will be available for two weeks.  If you decide not to purchase any images, that's perfectly fine - however your session fee is nonrefundable.  If you are unable to make your purchase before your gallery expires, don't fret! Images are kept for at least six months just in case - but there is a $25 re-listing fee, so please try to make it in time to avoid that extra cost.



Important Details:


Washington residents are subject to state tax.


A non-refundable deposit of $15 is due to secure your session time. No spots will be held unless the deposit has been paid. Your deposit will go towards the price of the session.  All no-shows forfeit their deposit, and an additional deposit will be required to schedule a new date.


The remaining balance is due on the date of your session.  I accept Paypal, Visa, Master Card, cash and check.  Photos will not be released if the payment hasn't cleared.


I am happy to travel anywhere within the states of Washington or Oregon for sessions - there will be a small mileage fee for locations outside of Cowlitz County.  Please contact me for a specific quote :)


There will be a $10/person charge for groups over five people.  For extra large groups or events please contact me for a quote.


With a print release you are welcome to print with whomever you choose, however I can not guarantee the quality of your prints if purchased anywhere else.  I recommend using Mpix.


Prices are non-negotiable.  Thank you for understanding.
