Each session includes full rights to edited, digital copies of your photos for you to print out as you like, or you can choose to order your prints through me to be shipped right to your door for an additional cost. Photos will be available for download via DropBox for at least three months after your session. Discs are available upon request. All prices are final and include sales tax.
Family Portrait Session
My standard family portrait sessions are done outdoors, the Snapjoy Studio in Grandville, or the comfort of your home.
30 minute session: $85
A good option for engagement, maternity, headshots, or small families with older children. Typically yields around 15-20 images. A $35 nonrefundable deposit is due at the time of booking if choosing to shoot in studio.
60 minute session: $150
A good option for newborn sessions, larger families, or families with younger children that may need additional time for coaxing for pictures. I also recommend an hour for maternity or portrait if you intend to change outfits more than once. Typically yields around 30-45 images. A $60 deposit is due at the time of booking if choosing to shoot in studio.
For longer sessions or event photography, please contact me for a quote. Please note that as a general rule, I do not photograph weddings. I leave that to the experts in the field who have devoted their career to capturing your special day.
Senior portrait sessions are done outdoors at a location of your choice. I am happy to send the final file to yearbook staff once photos are completed to your satisfaction.
Budget session: $85
This session is good for one location and two outfits. You will receive 15-20 images that are edited to my standard level and the option to have up to 5 photos edited for blemishes. A budget session will typically last for 30 minutes.
Full session: $150
This session is good for two locations and three to four outfits. You will receive 30-40 images that are edited to my standard level and the option to have up to 10 photos edited for blemishes. A full session will typically last for 45 to 60 minutes, not including driving time between locations as needed. Locations should be within 15 minutes of each other.
Birth photography requires a deposit paid at least 30 days in advance. If, for some reason, I cannot make it to your birth for reasons outside of your or my control (you progress too fast, have an emergency, are out of town, etc.), you have the choice to apply your deposit to a standard session. Currently, I am only photographing births that are within an hour drive of Zeeland, MI.
The deposit secures your due date in my calendar. It is due at least 30 days before your due date and is a separate charge from the costs outlined below.
Standard birth: $530
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.
Birth + Maternity Package: $585
Includes a 30 minute maternity session at a location of your choice and a standard birth photography package. ($20 savings)
Birth + Newborn Package: $630
Includes a 60 minute newborn session at your home or a location of your choice and a standard birth photography package. ($40 savings)
Birth + Materinity + Newborn Package: $685

Note: Travel fees can apply to maternity and newborn sessions in packages.
Travel cost is $.50 per mile outside a 25 mile radius of 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!
