FRESH 48 • $200
Includes a session done at the hospital within 24-48 hours of baby's birth. And additional travel fee may apply, depending on the location of the hospital. The session lasts for about an hour and will include an online gallery with 20 images, full resolution downloads, and a print release. You may purchase prints and/or USB drives from your online gallery.
Due to the nature of these sessions, I cannot guarantee availability. Therefore, no deposit will be required. I also cannot guarantee a particular time (i.e. when the whole family will be able to be present). It usually works out best for me to come in the mid-morning hours the day after the baby is born.
IN-HOME NEWBORN • $250
Includes a two-three hour session with plenty of time for feeding and snuggling, 30-40 edited images in an online gallery, USB drive shipped to you upon completion, and print release.
Your baby will be posed organically in your home with his/her family, including any other children you may have. Formal backdrops will also be used for photos of baby individually. I will also bring wraps, headbands, and outfits to your session. We will need to coordinate colors/themes beforehand.
I will also be bringing a few small props, made exclusively for photographing newborns, to your home for prop posed images.
A non-refundable $25 deposit is required for all sessions. Additional travel fees may apply.
Please make sure baby is fed prior to my arrival.
STUDIO RENTAL FEE • $50
If you are uncomfortable doing the session in your home, I am able to rent space in Carlisle in which to complete your session. You must pay the studio rental fee up front, as your deposit. This deposit is non-refundable, and these sessions will not be easily rescheduled.

Limited Edition Minis
Limited edition mini sessions are available throughout the year at discounted prices. These sessions are provided at the designated location only, on the designated dates only, and are usually centered around a particular theme.
These sessions are limited to children only, unless otherwise specified, and all fees are due at the time of booking. If you would like to be notified of limited edition mini sessions, please signup for our mailing list!
All sessions require a $25 deposit to cover setup and/or travel costs. This deposit is non-refundable except in cases of photographer cancellation. Your deposit will be refunded (minus processing fees) if the photographer initiates cancellation for any reason. Your deposit is due by 5pm on the date specified on your invoice or your appointment WILL BE CANCELLED and you will have to begin the booking process again.
A $25 travel fee is applied to locations every 30 miles beyond the studio location. For example, a chosen location 63 miles from the studio address will incur a travel fee of $50, plus the session fee. Travel fees are to cover the cost of travel + time spent traveling.
I currently do not have my own studio space, but I have a few options in my hometown of Carlisle for anyone wanting or needing an indoor studio setting. The $50 rental fee is due at booking, as a deposit and is non-refundable. These sessions are not easily rescheduled and you may be charged for two rental fees if cancellation cannot be made in accordance with the terms of the space being rented for the day.
$10 per additional person with families greater than 5-6 people.
PHOTO PRINTS AND USB DRIVES
Photo prints and USB drives may be purchased from your online gallery. USB drives are $55 plus shipping. Your USB will contain all of the edited images from your gallery + black and white conversions and will be shipped directly to your home.
Gift certificates are good for one year from the purchase date and may be used towards any session except limited edition minis. Contact me to purchase your gift certificate, or click here.
BOOKING LEAD TIME
Appointments are required for all sessions and will be scheduled no sooner than two weeks from the date you contact me. You must provide a valid email address when scheduling. This email address will be used for invoicing (if applicable), appointment confirmations, and proof delivery. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR REMEMBERING YOUR APPOINTMENT DATE AND TIME.
With the exception of limited edition mini sessions and rescheduled sessions, all session fees are due by the end of your session. The following payment methods are accepted: cash, check, credit/debit card. I do not accept PayPal. You may request to be invoiced for your session balance prior to, or immediately following your session. Your invoice is due upon receipt. Overdue invoices are subject to a daily 5% late fee until the balance has been paid in full. No images will be edited, shared, or released to you until your balance is paid in full.
All sessions require a $25 deposit. This deposit is due by 5pm on the date specified on your invoice or your session will be cancelled and you will have to start the scheduling process again. Deposits are non-refundable, except in cases of photographer cancellation, and may not be applied to a rescheduled session.
All limited edition mini session fees are due at scheduling. If cancellation is made 24 hours in advance, your fee will be credited to the next mini session special event. You will have first opportunity to schedule your session if your fee has been credited. You may also transfer your session to a third party. Your fee is non-refundable and non-transferrable, should you decide to cancel less than 24 hours in advance.
All credit card transactions are subject to a 2.9% processing fee and a $0.30 transaction fee, therefore all refunds on credit card transactions will not be refunded in the full original amount. Your refund will be based on the amount of the original transaction, minus the processing fee. Example: $25 deposits are refunded in the amount of $23.97.
With the exception of rare photographer initiated cancellation for special event mini sessions, no monetary refunds will be given. If you are unhappy with your photos for any reason, please don't hesitate to contact me. Together we will work towards a solution; your photos may be edited in a different style or we may retake your session. However, art is subjective and I require compensation for the time I have already put into your session.
If you can not make it to your appointment on time, please let me know. Your appointment end time will not be extended to accommodate your tardiness. If you are more than 15 minutes late, you will forfeit your session and any deposits. If you need to reschedule, additional fees will apply. See below for cancellation/rescheduling policy.
If the photographer is unable to make it to your appointment on time, your session will be extended to compensate. If the photographer is more than 15 minutes late, you will be given a full refund of your deposit and will receive no penalties or extra fees if you need to reschedule.
NO CALL NO SHOWS: I reserve the right to refuse further service to anyone who doesn't give me the courtesy of cancelling their session. Obviously, certain circumstances require immediate attention, so not all no call no shows will automatically result in refusal of future services. No call no shows are not entitled to a refund of deposit, no matter what the circumstances for your absence.
CANCELLATION / RESCHEDULING POLICY
Formal cancellation is requested at least 24 hours in advance if you can not make it to your session. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your session, it will be automatically cancelled (see above) and you will forfeit your deposit.
In cases of photographer initiated cancellation, you will receive a full refund of any deposits or other fees you may have already paid.
If you wish to reschedule your appointment for any reason other than inclement weather, you will be charged a rescheduling fee equal to balance remaining on your session fee. Overdue invoices will be charged a daily late fee equal to 5% of the balance. If your invoice becomes overdue, you will not be granted any other appointment time until it has been paid.
You can expect to receive your online gallery approximately 2-3 weeks after your session date. If it has been more than 30 days since your session date and you have still not received your gallery link, please contact me. For weddings and special events (parties, etc.), you can expect to receive your images no less than 30 days, but not more than 90 days, after your event.
If you have ordered prints from your online gallery, they will be shipped to you in 7-10 days once the order has been approved and submitted to the lab by me. I do not guarantee the quality of any prints. However, I have chosen a professional lab with excellent customer service and I will be happy to contact them on your behalf if there is a problem.
If you purchase prints from an outside lab or retailer, I am NOT responsible for those prints and will not be willing to help you resolve any issues you may have.
