Lifestyle Portraiture

I am currently booking  Lifestyle Portrait sessions for this fall… I will shut down for the winter starting at Thanksgiving.  Please email for special needs/requests and I’ll check availability.  Equine/ranch and  commercial sessions available year-round.  Thanks !!!

Lifestyle Portraiture

I want to provide a fun, memorable experience that is all about YOU!  I specialize in “Lifestyle Portraiture” that captures moments of your life, not outdated poses.  Your experience will be very laid-back, creative and did I mention FUN???  You are welcome to suggest a location that is suited to your personality and daily life, or……

I have been truly blessed to live on what I think is the most beautiful little piece of Texas a person could want- including rolling hills, native and improved pasture, and creek beds with lots of personality! Counts Creek Ranch has been in our family for three generations, and I am proud to share this location in Morgan Mill with you for your photo shoot. Many times we will use the creek locations, pastures with livestock in the backgrounds, and other ranch settings.

Seniors- there are no limits!  Want a little more urban/trendy look?  Can do- let’s get creative in town somewhere.  Or do you prefer the rustic outdoors?  Let’s shoot here at the ranch.   Somewhere in between…  shabby chic or grunge?  The decision is yours- don’t hold back!

Scheduling

*I am available only two seasons of the year for portrait sessions, March thru May, and again September until Thanksgiving.  Thank you for your understanding, as I have a young family and other responsibilities here at the ranch.  If you absolutely need me on another day not listed as available, please contact me and we can visit about my availability and prices.

*Only 2-3 late afternoon/evenings are available weekday time slots for a photo session.

Please try to contact me at least two weeks in advance to schedule a photo shoot.  There are many variables to consider- work schedules and weather have the most impact. Usually I can get you in quicker than that, but be prepared to be flexible. Also, please be kind enough to let me know of cancellations at least two days in advance.

Investment

$450-Up to 1.5 hours photographer time. This includes all images (jpeg format) on disc from the shoot for you to print yourself, or you can order professional quality prints through me as well.  Mileage charged over 20 mile radius of Morgan Mill.  Additional hours are charged at $125/hr.  Includes up to 5 images of your choice photo-shopped to enhance color and minor edits (see graphic design below- this is a $75 value).  There is usually a two week turnaround for the images to be ready.  If needed before then, there will be a rush fee.

Starting at $500- Saturday sessions or special request sessions.

**These prices do not include Texas State Sales Tax**

Graphic Design

Editing and adding artistic flare to your images is the second step to your photo shoot.  I allow credit with your package to lightly retouch, crop, and add cool artistic flare to FIVE of your favorite images.  Additional images and more intense editing can be quoted when you get to the part where “you just can’t decide which ones!”

I can also design custom announcements, invitations, storyboards, collages, etc. from your shoot.  Contact me with ideas and questions and I can give you an estimate and samples of my work.
