I understand that all my clients have unique needs. If you are seeking customized options, wish to inquire about other price points, or just have something different in mind, never hesitate to ask. Specials and mini-sessions are offered at select times each year; they are posted here when available, and a group rates is listed below.
Special—Richlands Dairy Farm and Creamery Portrait Sessions and Portrait Venue Partnership: Join us June 29th (during Family Farm Day at Richlands), and October 12 and 19 (during the farm’s Fall Festival) for a candid portrait experience with a calf at the farm, located near Blackstone—admission is included along with a collection of high-resolution digital files from your sessions. In the past, these have filled quickly—details and reservations are available here. This farm is a wonderful venue for outdoor portraits, and the new creamery will be a great place to grab some ice cream on the way out; if you wish to shoot your session at this farm on dates outside of the calf experience specials in June and October, currently sessions at Richlands Dairy Farm are offered at the same rates as my regular packages (see below). If you wish to hold your session at Richlands, I will make direct arrangements with the farm. Portrait sessions at Richlands may include opportunities to include some cows and heifers in our photo backgrounds if desired. If you would like candid images interacting directly with a calf at your portrait session, pending availability, a calf experience can be included in addition to your regular session rate for an added fee to compensate farm staff for calf preparation and use. Learn more about the farm and creamery.
Full portrait session:
This experience consists of approximately one hour at a location of your choice* and includes unlimited outfit changes and a variety of images from several settings at the shooting location. After your session, I will send you an online gallery of a minimum of 20 or more high-resolution digital images (typical delivery is 30-50 images) that I carefully curate and edit in order to create a finished collection for you to download. You will also receive an unlimited printing and personal use release.
$280 plus 5.3% VA sales tax ($14.84)
Special - Full portrait session plus print package: This option includes the full-length portrait session described above combined with a set of professional-quality luster prints on matte paper in a volume-discounted package. Choose from one of the following package options—after you receive your digital files, select any combination of your favorite images to fill the package of your choice:
A (1) 11x14 and (2) 8x10 and (2) 5x7 professional-quality luster prints on matte paper
B (5) 8x10 professional-quality luster prints on matte paper

Total special (full portrait session + print package) - $330 plus 5.3% VA sales tax ($17.49).
Group Rates / Lesson and Boarding Barn Groups - Portrait mini-session special: When two or more clients book a time block together, a portrait mini session option is available for $150+7.95 VA sales tax per person (if a travel fee applies for a site greater than 60 miles round-trip, this can be split between all parties). Mini sessions include 30 minutes of shooting and posing time per person and result in 10 or more hi-resolution images with printing and personal use release included. If any clients in the group prefer to book the full portrait package instead of the mini session package, we will simply adjust the day's schedule to match the appropriate time required for each person's session selection. Download and print an info sheet to share with your barn/group.
Still deciding about purchasing prints? Don’t worry, you can choose the same special volume-discounted print package included in the portrait+print package special described above. Add this any time after any session for $50 plus 5.3% VA sales tax ($2.49), or you can visit my print page for a pricing for individual print and wall art selections.
* I can suggest a location if you don't have one in mind. Session pricing is inclusive of up to 60 miles of round-trip travel from my location in Amelia County; however, I am available for additional travel. Contact me for information about your location.
The full portrait session hour-long option is available for equine, family, engagement, children, lifestyle, maternity, senior, and other outdoor portrait sessions. Inquire for “black background” horse images, large family/multi-family sessions, events, and other needs; quotes for these may require some customization.
You may bring personal items that you wish to incorporate into the session; pets are always welcome! Visit my availability calendar or just contact me via my booking page to ask about dates, and from there, we can confirm a date together. You will also receive my contract and invoice.
