My collections are all-inclusive, which means there are no minimum orders or hidden fees! Beginning at $500, they include your booking fee, digital images with printing rights, and prints related to the Collection choice. Additional professional print, canvasses, or photo books may be purchased directly from your gallery. See the Investment Page for more information or contact me with any questions.
I can refer you to many great places, but if you have a special place in mind, I will do my best to meet your vision. From the Millenium Gardens, to Lake Minnetonka, The Burwell House, to Baker Park, a field around Orono, to the Stone Arch Bridge in downtown Minneapolis, to the Guthrie Theater - the possibilities are endless. We can also do an in studio session in Northeast Minneapolis and then take photos outside in a great urban setting.
You may have multiple outfit changes. During a 1-2 hour shoot, 3 is a good number of outfit changes. If you need a little inspiration, feel free to peruse through my Pinterest Board. The important thing to remember is to dress like you! You may bring hats, jewelry, your pet, sports equipment, an instrument - whatever reflects your interests. If you would like to work with a stylist for hair and make-up, I can refer one to you. Payment would go to her directly. Please refrain from wearing clothing with words (unless it is school letter jackets or spirit wear). I also provide free personalized styling from an incredible service to help you be photo ready!

What (and Whom) to Bring
A bag to carry everything you need: outfits, water, make-up for any touch-ups, lip balm, hair brush and bug spray - it is Minnesota after all! To boost your comfort level, you may bring along a close friend or your parents - whomever you want to help you feel relaxed. A complimentary photo with family or a friend is included as part of your session
Retouching and Posing
Trust me, I get it. I've been to the dermatologist many, many times during the past few years and understand how important it is for you to look your best in your Senior photos. I hand edit each photo in your gallery. I will remove any blemishes, but the photos will look like the beautiful person God created you to be! Don't worry about posing. I want you to feel comfortable and relaxed during your session. My sessions are natural and relaxed. Trust me to guide you through. We will walk around, talk, or play music in the studio - while taking photos the whole time.
Sessions are between 1-2 hours long. You may have multiple outfit changes throughout. An hour before sunset is preferable for my sessions, but we can do things any time of day. We work around your schedule during the week or weekends. Be sure to keep your back-up rain date open because, you know, Minnesota!
Photos will be sent to you in an online gallery approximately 2-3 weeks after your session. I will send you a few sneak peaks along the way which you may share on social media or just enjoy! After you review your gallery for 1 week, we will have a conversation about which collection you may want to purchase or any custom products I can fulfill for you. You will also let me know which photo you would like for your yearbook and I will send it to the appropriate contact at your school. Please order within three weeks from receiving your gallery. Galleries expire 30 days after they are live.
