Hi, I'm Sara
THANK YOU so much for your interest in a session with me. Whether you've decided to book or are interested in more details, I want to answer all your questions about the experience we will create together for a lifestyle photography session.
MY APPROACH to sessions is unique to each family and client. They are either on location (we work together to pick a beautiful spot) or inside and around your home. I consider myself a Lifestyle Family Photographer and 99 percent of the time I will shoot in natural light. I am not a photographer who uses props or asks my subjects to stop and smile at the camera. I AM a photographer who looks for authentic connection between people and my favorite photographs are the ones that make you feel something when you look back on them. I will often direct you and your family to a specific location or pose and then let the natural candid moments unique to your relationships unfold. That is where the MAGIC happens.
Think about an ideal family day with your loved ones. What would it feel like? What would you do together? A picnic at your favorite spot in the foothills? A summer evening in your backyard with the kids running through the sprinklers with the dogs chasing after them? I want to help tell YOUR story in your season of life, whatever that may be.
My passion and work is to capture those candid and emotive unposed shots that you will cherish and hang on your walls for years to come. I want you to laugh, cry, play and enjoy your time at our session. The way your little one plays with your hair when you're holding her? That's something you'll always treasure. Or how your son loves to pick up rocks by the creek and throw them further than Dad? YES. Another beautiful moment that you don't want to forget. Our session together will document your family as they are right now. Real is beautiful.
I like to keep things simple. Your investment includes all session digital images (minimum of 60) artistically edited and presented in a beautiful online gallery for immediate download with a Personal Print Release.
SESSION FEE - $250
A non-refundable retainer of $250 is required to book your session date. Your session fee includes the time and creativity in executing your session on the day of your appointment, time spent on pre-session consultations and time/creative energy spent in post processing of your digital files. Digital images are not included in your session fee.
DIGITAL IMAGES COLLECTION - $550
Between three and four weeks after your session you will receive a link to a private online portrait gallery showcasing your final set of images. Please share your gallery with friends, family and co-workers at your discretion. It will be live for fourteen calendar days for you to download and share.
Included with the session is a styling consultation where I will work with you and provide styling suggestions for you and your family's wardrobe. We'll start with Mom and find her a gorgeous bohemian dress or flowy top that she feels most beautiful in and the rest of the wardrobe pieces will fall into place.
Also included in your session is a complimentary custom 11x14 professional timeless archival print of your favorite image from our session together.
VIDEO STORY ADD-on
New for 2018, I now offer video story add-ons. These will be 3-4 minute professionally shot and edited video stories of our session together.
Do you photograph weddings?
Yes! I photograph weddings with my business partner and good friend Nicole Dina Photography. Please inquire about our full list of pricing packages. We would absolutely love to document your amazing day. Wedding Collections start at $4,000.
I'm in another state. Do you travel?
I do and I love to travel! I am based in the Denver Metro area but would love to travel to wherever you are. Travel fees vary based on location and duration of the trip. Please contact me with any questions you have.
what should we wear?
I always say the best way to dress for your session is to wear outfits that will compliment the people you will be in the pictures with. Wear something that makes you feel good, that you are comfortable in and that shows your personality. Don't be afraid of color. Don't be afraid to dress up a little or a lot! This is your chance to show off your personality. If you feel good in what you're wearing it will enhance your images tenfold. Most of all have fun with it! This is your chance to shine. If you need help some Pinterest boards that might spark some ideas. Check HERE, HERE and HERE for families and children and HERE for newborn sessions.
