Rates & Packages

Session Rates for Senior, Engagement or Family Photos
My priority is to capture your personality or relationship in a laid back, natural way. Rates given here are simply a starting point and can be customized to suit your needs and preferences.
  •  All sessions are on-location up to 40 miles from Marshfield, WI. There is an additional fee for locations outside this radius, please ask when scheduling your session.
  • All sessions are up to 1 hour of photographing unless otherwise noted in description.
  • All sessions include a free photo CD with high-quality portrait files for you to print as you choose! Of course we offer professional prints and gifts, and naturally our prices are affordable, but I understand if you just want to have them printed on your own - that's ok, too (**please note, photo color and quality will vary if you decide to have them printed on your own and not via our professional service)
  • Professional photo touch-ups, blemish removal and creative enhancements (at photographer's discretion) are also included with each package. Extensive enhancements and corrections are billed per individual request.
The session fees do NOT include any prints (unless mentioned in package description) and all sessions are designed for one immediate family. Please ask about additional members or large groups when scheduling.
*Note: Session fees are due soon after scheduling your appointment to hold your scheduled date. If not paid before your session, rates are due at the close of the shoot. If because of rain we cannot reschedule the appointment within a reasonable amount of time, I will issue a complete refund. Please see "About us" for basic shoot information and what to expect.
