An even greater moment than your wedding day, one that deserves to be documented.

To secure a spot on my calendar half of the session fee is due at the time of booking. Within 4 weeks of your birth session you will receive a link to a password protected online gallery. The online gallery will contain all edited photographs that have been approved by me from the session for you to choose from. All galleries will expire within 90 days.

I offer payment plans up to one year through Square Installments. It's not a credit card and only takes a few minutes to get approved.
