Maternity and Children Sessions are short and sweet and end promptly after 45 minutes. These are for solo maternity shoots (mama and her partner) and kid-only sessions (solo child - great for milestones! or siblings).
Family and Newborn Sessions are longer and for the full family. These include family shots, as well as siblings together, and solo images of each child. These sessions allow kids more time to warm up and relax. We will do more interactive, lifestyle shooting and move around a little more at our location for a variety of backdrops. There's time to change a diaper or have a snack. These sessions tell more of a story and give a wider variety of shots. There is no limit to the number of participants, but must be immediate family (ie: no session sharing among friends). Extended families are $100 extra.
Upon booking, I will share my favorite locations with you to choose. These are tried and true, where I know the best spots and lighting. All locations will be in the SW metro - Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Edina, Burnsville, Minnapolis. I have a variety of natural and urban settings.
If you would like to book in the Chanhassen studio, there is a $55/hour fee in addition to your session fee. Newborns require a 2 hour minimum, and cake smashes are an additional $20/hour.
If you would like a specific location, there will be a $50 add-on fee so I can scope out the location prior to our session.
