Pricing Overview

documentary-style family photography services

The photos we create are going to be full of life - your life.

While creating those images together is going to be a ton of fun, it is also a big investment for both of us. Financials aside (there are $ costs for both of us), we'll also be investing a lot of time (a precious commodity these days), energy, and emotion. You open your home and life to a photographer. I burn the midnight oil meticulously working to make your album a work of art. Seriousy, I pour my heart and soul in.

That's why the thought of digital files sitting on hard drives makes me so sad. Although people have good intentions, their lives are also very busy. Files get buried. Lost. Destroyed. Who knows if future generations will see them. They have very little value then. Repeat, so sad!

I want to be sure you have something awesome to hold in your hands and pass on to future generations (this is your legacy we're talking about!). My base service includes an awesome book designed by lil' ol me (advanced warning: it may make you cry), a stack of prints, and full resolution digital files so you do have a backup.

There are no inflated prices if you want more. I've already worked my arse off and you've paid me to do it. Professional printing is available at cost. So, print away!

Finally, let's use our positive energies for greater good. Following your session, I'll make a donation to charity in your name.

* I typically make donations to West Side Baby, an organization who helps families in the Seattle area. If something aligns better with your family.  If you have a preferred charity, I’m more than happy to make the donation there instead. Just say the word!
