Standard Portrait Session

My standard portrait sessions are done outdoors or in the comfort of your home. If you need studio access, please contact me for a quote.

30 minute session: $65
A good option for maternity, portrait, or small families with older children. I do not recommend 30 minutes for newborn pictures.

60 minute session: $120
A good option for newborn sessions, larger families, or families with younger children that may need additional coaxing for pictures. I also recommend an hour for maternity or portrait if you intend to change outfits more than once.

For longer sessions and event photography, please contact me for a quote.

Each session includes full rights to edited, digital copies of your photos. Photos will be available for download via DropBox for three months after your session.

If you would like a disc of your photos, please let me know so I can include the shipping charge ($5) with your session fee. The shipping fee is waived for sessions of 60 minutes or more and for birth photography.

Birth Photography

Birth photography, unlike my standard sessions, requires a deposit. If, for some reason, I cannot make it to your birth (you progress too fast, have an emergency, are out of town, etc.), you have the choice to apply your deposit to a standard session or receive a 50% refund. Currently, I am only photographing births that are within an hour drive of Zeeland, MI.

Deposit: $50
The deposit secures your due date in my calendar. It is due at least 30 days before your due date (separate from birth photography charge)

Standard birth: $500
A standard birth photography package includes a free meet-and-greet with me before your birth to discuss your birth plan, as well as any details you particularly want me to photograph (or not photograph). I will arrive at your birth once you are in active labor (typically when you would call a doula, go to the hospital, or say your contractions are becoming more than just uncomfortable). I stay with you until baby’s stats are taken and baby has had his or her first feed. Payment is due at the time of birth or within 3 days.

Scheduled birth: $400
A scheduled birth photography package includes a free meet-and-greet with me before your birth to discuss your birth plan, as well as any details you particularly want me to photograph (or not photograph). I will arrive at your birth as soon as you are checked in to the hospital and in active labor. If you are having a c-section, please contact me to discuss the birth package, as not all hospitals will allow me in the OR. I stay with you until baby’s stats are taken and baby has had his or her first feed. Payment is due at the time of birth or within 3 days.

Birth + Maternity Package: $550
Includes a 30 minute maternity session at a location of your choice and a standard birth photography package. ($15 savings)

Birth + Newborn  Package: $590
Includes a 60 minute newborn session at your home or a location of your choice and a standard birth photography package. ($30 savings)

Birth + Materinity + Newborn Package: $635
Includes a 30 minute maternity session at a location of your choice, a 60 minute newborn session at your home or a location of your choice, and a standard birth photography package.  ($50 savings)

Note: Travel fees can apply to maternity and newborn sessions in packages.

Travel

Travel cost is $.50 per mile of driving distance outside the Holland/Zeeland area. Feel free to contact me to get a customized quote for the location you have in mind or see if I will be in your area soon and can waive the fee!

I do not charge a travel fee for birth photography, but I do limit travel to within an hour’s drive of Zeeland, MI.

Save $10 by choosing to have your photos done at Lawrence Street Park in Zeeland.

I will occasionally offer mini sessions to be posted on my blog and Facebook page. These sessions are scheduled back-to-back, 20 minutes each at a set location. Mini sessions are $40 for 20 minutes.

I do also accept bartering at my discretion. Contact me and see if we can work something out!
