Sessions take place year-round, even in the snow! Peak times are summer and early fall. Therefore, if you have a specific date in mind, please contact me so we are able to get you on the schedule soon!

Once your session is scheduled and the session retainer is collected, you receive access to the password-protected Client Log-in page on my website. This page includes a detailed welcome/what to expect online guide!

We customize your session to what fits you and your taste, style, and interests. This includes but is not limited to urban, private gardens, farms, or local parks. Once your session is scheduled and the session retainer has been collected, you receive access to the password-protected Client Log-in page on my website. There you will find a list of great local places. Additionally, if you know of someone with a private farm or property, those are good options as well!

Yes! A certain number of high resolution, edited digital images are included in your session price. Additionally, other images are available for purchase as well.
how do i get my images?
We schedule a viewing appointment at my home office in Elburn to go through your online, password-protected photo gallery. At this time, we talk about what you want to do with your photos, how to display them, and I answer any questions you might have. Next, the gallery will then be emailed to you and is live for one month.

I offer many beautiful professional prints and products! All are 100% satisfaction, color, and quality guaranteed. In addition to traditional prints, I offer mounted prints, canvases, metal prints, custom designed photo books, ornaments, and more!
