Portrait Information

Why Professional Photography?

How precious are those photographs of your family when you were a kid? How much do you treasure the images of your grandparents or parents before they passed away? Photos of our loved ones are one of the most important things we hold on to through the years. I capture the beauty of what’s happening in your family now, because before you know it, one stage is over and a new season begins.

Where do we go?

Wherever you want, there are loads of great places in Central Indiana! It really depends on what style of images you’re after. What about Downtown at the Canal, Holiday Park or there’s always your own property. We could even do a combination of locations. Wherever we go, I want you all to be relaxed and happy, because when you’re having fun the photos always look great. 

How long do we need?

If I can help it, we will never rush a photo sitting. Grown-ups need to relax, children need to have time to play, and babies need time to get dirty and cleaned back up again, and then get dirty again. This is why I recommend at least 1 hour to get some great images. The best time for a session is early morning before the sun is too bright to late evening  just before the sun starts to set. Newborn sessions usually last longer.  They should be scheduled for the first 2 weeks of  life for the best results. In the event of inclement weather, your session will be rescheduled.

How much does it cost?

The portrait sitting start at $150 which gets you the fun experience of the photo shoot right through to the end.  All photo shoot sessions include ~ 10-15 high resolution images by a password protected link or cd.  I also offer your images to be printed on canvas, giving you the perfect piece of art for your home.  For Seniors, Newborn prices and other, see the Investment Pricing Page.

What to Wear?

The right choice in clothing can be the difference between a great portrait and just a good picture.  Some things to remember for your session.

  • Bold colors,  scarves, boots, and funky hats are always fun.
  • Don’t forget about your shoes.  Make sure that they are in keeping with the style of portrait you want. 
  • If taking group shots try to be consistent with everyone in the group by wearing similar colors or tones.
