Hi folks!  Welcome to Here is some information about a few packages and session types and cost estimates to help to get you thinking about just exactly what it is you want.

All photo shoots require payment of a non-refundable session fee (typically 100.00)  prior to the beginning of the session.  Before we start hte session, we'll discuss

- the mood you want to convey with each outfit in each setting

- exactly where we'll take pictures

- what outfits you expect to wear in which locations  

- pricing; packages vs. a la carte

- digital images for Facebook, etc



After the session, usually within a few days,  I’ll have the edited photos posted on a gallery on the website containing the best images of the shoot.   Although the photos will already be processed for color and cropping, you can select several photos, based on the package you choose, for “perfection” editing to eliminate skin blemishes, spots, flyaway hairs, etc, if necessary. 




$100 for up to two Des Moines area locations
