I have been photographing this little angel above since she was a tiny little baby.  Her parents were the first to trust in me to take her newborn, 3 month, 6, 9, 1 year and every special occasion photos!  I am so grateful that they have asked me and continue to use me for all of their special moments.  They are the most amazing people and I have known her mom for years.  She has become an even closer friend over the past few years and called me before she told some friends about the possibility of this announcement!  I was so excited for her and her family on the possibility of a new baby.  I didn’t even think about what she was asking me!  Of course like me, because we are very similar, and can’t keep secrets for long…..she said as soon as I get the confirmation from the doctor I want to document and announce this!  How cool and fun for me!  We talked and planned ideas and she right away, like she always does, got the cutest little shirt for Addy!  AW!!  Big sister!!!  Momma is doing great and due in the fall and even if Addy doesn’t understand quite yet, she will be so excited to have a little sister or brother!  I love the photos because although we planned what we wanted to do.. Addyson was her usual star self and made the pictures even more adorable!!  And then we had to do some cute Valentines and Easter photos of her for mom and dad!!  

Hello 2013

Hi everyone!! 2012 was an amazing year!! I am doing some restructuring and a little bit of formalities as to be able to provide a better experience for you! My goal is to provide something special, high quality, professional, fun, affordable, and something that will leave an impression and last a lifetime!

All sessions (child, family, engagement, maternity, etc) will be one standard price $125 (with the exception of newborns as more time is needed and of course weddings or events) The session price will include some prints (2 8×10 and 3 5×7) and an online private viewing gallery of all images! Session times will be 60-90 min in studio, or can be at an outdoor location!

All clients will receive a welcoming packet explaining all of the details and about me as your photographer! :). I like to get to know my clients and would like you to know about me as well!! I want to make your experience as fun as possible and provide a service that will have you return as a client or to refer me is the best compliment I could ask for!

A $50 Deposit that is applied toward session fee will be required to hold all session dates as well as a signed contract before session!

I feel that there are two different needs to be met with clients. The digital vs print. I have printed images from cvs, Walgreens, and a pro printing lab. I would like to show the differences in printing and show you that it can be done at a reasonable price, but the difference in high quality images is important. You are paying for experience, professionalism and high quality, and images less than that defeat what you are coming to me for. My objective is not to make money off of you, but to provide you with a fun, professional experience with a high quality standard. You can select and purchase through me the quantity of images that you would like. I will not be making a package or rates or a minimum purchase order. I want things that will be affordable and to meet your individual needs. Prices will be a la cart. $2- 4×6 $4 5×7 $8 8×10 $12-11×14. We can also discuss fun options of larger prints, canvases, metal and wood prints, photo books etc! Explore new ideas, and customize photos for your home!!

Cd’s still can be purchased for $100 with all images and a printing release. I like to provide a lot of images and will edit every usable photo from the session. With the digital age we live in if you would like to have the disk for your computer, digital photo frame, facebook or anything else that is great! You can also have the printing release with it being known that I can not be responsible for the quality of the images you print, but you are more than welcome to print with it wherever you would like! :). I would prefer to have my work represented in the best way, and I also want to be able to meet your needs or wishes!! These disks can be great for birthday invitations, birth announcements, calendars, thank you cards, holiday greetings etc!

With all of this I want to express how much I really love what I do! I love meeting new people!! Watching kids laugh and being able to capture that! Seeing a baby grow up before my eyes and camera, and getting to be a part of it every few months!! Seeing their parents faces light up when they see their child’s or families portraits!! I strive to capture the moments and feelings of a couple in love, or have them remember the moment when they look back years from now. I love each experience and moment I get to be a part of! I want to offer more to people and have something that you can’t just find anywhere!

Thanks and hope to see you in 2013!
Shannon
