I'm so happy you are interested in working together to capture your story. In determining my pricing model, it was important for me to include printed photographs in each package. Why prints? How many of us have digital devices that are full of photographs that we never look at? How many of us break or lose a cell phone or computer, with all of the memories and images disappearing with it? The ease of digital files, along with cloud storage, are wonderful for making it simple to quickly capture a moment, but there is absolutely no replacement for having tangible photos, albums, and wall art in your home. The longevity of archival prints safely tucked into an album that will be passed along to and pored over by future generations is truly irreplaceable. And there is such joy in having your walls elegantly adorned with the people you most love in this world.
All Narrow Gate Packages include:
Pre-session phone consultation
The time and talents of the photographer
Professional, subtle retouching and color correction of your images, providing a polished result
In-person reveal and consultation, where you view your photos and you can see and touch the various products offered
Archival-quality prints on professional-grade photographic paper

Designed to help you capture the joy, sweet simplicity (and sometimes chaos) of your life, lifestyle sessions are casual, unposed blocks of time where I'll follow you and your family through a portion of your day. These sessions usually take place in your home or at a previously agreed-upon location. Whether you choose to capture the beauty of your everyday life, or we plan a favorite craft, activity or outing for me to photograph, you'll cherish the smiles, gestures, and mannerisms of your children at this distinct moment in their childhood.
Two-hour Lifestyle Session
For two hours, you'll receive my undivided attention, where I will capture you and your family in unposed, artful, lifestyle images. The session includes a planning consultation, where we'll discuss potential locations, the details of your shoot, and possible activities for us to capture (like holiday cookie decorating, a picnic in the park, or a trip to the playground). During your session, I will be an observer, capturing you and your family quietly from the fringe. Occasionally I may ask someone to look at me, or I may scurry to move an object in the scene, but mostly my job is capture you and yours in your natural element. Within two weeks of your session, we will meet for a reveal and ordering session, where you will receive a gallery of 50-60 images. From these images, you will choose 20-25 images for inclusion into a beautiful, professional-quality photo book. You'll also receive all 50-60 images from your gallery on a custom USB stick, and a 15% discount on all additional print products. $1200
Lifestyle Session with Family Film
Similar to the Lifestyle Session, this session focuses on capturing the unique story of your family through unposed, documentary images. Within four weeks of your session, you will receive a gallery of 15-20 images delivered on a custom USB stick; an online gallery for viewing; a highly-edited short film that succinctly tells the story of your day, set to thoughtfully-chosen, independently-licensed music; and an archival quality gift print (up to 8 x 10 in.) of every image in your gallery. Package includes a 25% discount on additional print products. $1500
Documentary Birth Photography
Your child's birth is a momentous, once-in-a-lifetime event, and I want to be there to capture all of it: the excitement, the anticipation, the work, the first breath and those tender moments of finally gazing into the eyes of your sweet baby. Birth sessions begin at $1500 and include full coverage of the birth in your chosen birth space, with additional options, such as "Fresh 48" sessions and maternity shoots, available as add-ons. Contact me for complete pricing details and to customize a package to fit your needs and budget. In an effort to make capturing your birth affordable for all, payment plans are available upon request.
Disney Documentary Coverage
A Disney vacation is a magical time for a family, and what better way to preserve those memories than to hire a photographer to capture the moments for you. Instead of worrying about cameras, memory cards and juggling devices, let me accompany you through your day, allowing you to stay in the moment and be in front of the lens, instead of behind it! Disney packages include a day of coverage (up to 8 hours) at the parks and a gallery of 100+ images delivered within 3 weeks of your vacation on a custom USB memory stick. $1500
The fine print: the prices listed for on-location portraiture include photographing up to 6 participants during your single, approximately 1-hour session. Additional participants, or sessions that run more than 30 minutes over the scheduled time (due to excessive wardrobing or special requests by the client), will be subject to an additional charge. Prices above include photographer travel within 40 miles of Lithia, FL. Travel beyond 40 miles by the photographer will incur an additional charge. A $150 non-refundable session deposit is due upon booking to reserve your date. Clients who sign a commercial model release will receive a 10% discount off of their package price (Disney packages are exempt from this offer). Disney packages do not include any prints, however print products may be ordered separately.
