Each session includes full rights to edited, digital copies of your photos. Photos will be available for download via DropBox for at least 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.
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 time for 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. 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. If you still feel like I’d be a good fit for your ceremony, feel free to contact me using the link above.
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. 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 (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.

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