Sunset Sessions 2021

I am so excited to open my availability for 2021 sunset sessions! My sessions are fun and relaxed! I do some posing and directing but I try to capture authentic moments and the connections you all share. Sessions are scheduled in the late afternoon/early evening about 1.5-2 hours before sunset when the lighting is the best!

My sunset session package for families and couples includes location of choice, don’t worry this does not fall on your shoulders! I have some favorite spots you can choose from and we will discuss this more in depth after you choose an available date. If you have a spot that is meaningful to you and your family, I would love to hear about it! When clients share their vision with me, the session is that much better!

The session will last anywhere from 1-2 hours and totally depends on what your family wants & needs during our time together. One thing you’ll learn about me if you haven’t worked with me before is I am calm & collected. I have twin boys- so tears, meltdowns, and messes do not scare me. They are totally normal and might happen during your session and that’s ok! I will help get your family back on track during the session so that everyone enjoys this experience and we get photos you love for a lifetime!

I encourage families and couples to choose an activity or location that they love doing or going to. These are the days you want to remember. These are the moments you want your kids to see in photos. Think about some of your favorite pictures you have with your parents or other loved ones.. are they from a posed studio session at JC Penney (no shade) or are they photos from the beach, your backyard playing in the dirt, flying a kite at the park, or a day trip to the apple orchard in the fall?

Also included in your session is an interactive styling service that I just love for my clients! You can shop online and coordinate outfits with such ease. Keep in mind that you probably have everything you need in your closets already! I do encourage moms and daughters to be the ones that do splurge on new outfits, we totally deserve it.

I know in the summer months you worry about a cranky baby or toddler being up past bedtime but out of the 100’s of sessions I have photographed with little ones, I honestly do not recall a time that the kids were too grumpy or emotional to shoot. If anything they start to get clingy and cuddly and we want that!

This post and available dates is not reserved for families only. I love working with couples that are celebrating anniversaries, maternity, or just because photos. You do not need a reason to be photographed, you deserve to be photographed through every stage of your life.

Session fee: $400 | $150 and signed contract required to secure your date, remaining balance due day of session.

Session includes: 1+ hour at location of choice, access to interactive style guide, online gallery with a minimum of 60 digital files with a print release, set of 4×6 prints on premium paper.

Click here to choose your date! I am so excited to meet & photograph you!
