Family FAQS

How do I reserve a date and what happens if I need to reschedule? 

I plan my entire year of family sessions and they go live at the beginning of the calendar year. Due to the limited amount of sessions available, your nonrefundable payment is due upon booking. However, I completely understand that things happen and life can be unpredictable! Should you need to reschedule, we will work together to make that happen. 

When should I plan to book if I want you to do our newborn photos?

If you know you want a session when baby is 10 days or newer, I encourage you to book with a family photographer who will put your due date in their calendar and have flexibility around your due date (because you never know when baby will arrive). BUT, if you’re expecting and know you’d like to work with me sometime after baby comes, I would recommend signing up for a slot 2+ weeks after baby’s due date. My shooting style is documentary; so less about posing a newborn baby in a particular way and more about your time spent together as a family and all of the ways you interact. In that sense, it doesn’t matter if baby is 2 weeks or 2 months.

What if I wanted to include my extended family? What is the cost for a session outside of the Des Moines area? 

Your entire family is welcome to join your session as a $150 add on. Please keep in mind this results in a final gallery that has a few combinations of various groupings vs. an entire gallery dedicated to just your family.

As for sessions that would take place outside of Des Moines, I'm always happy to travel! Especially if the destination is a meaningful location for your crew.  fill out the contact form and I'll send a custom quote. 

Do you offer mini sessions?
