Family Adventure Sessions

Hey there friend! Do you love to travel and see all the pretty things? Want to take an adventure and have amazing photos taken while doing it? I’m your girl!! I have always been a dreamer and since childhood I have had a desire for adventure, and wanderlust deep in my soul. I grew up in the tiny mountains of Southwest Oklahoma riding my horses, exploring the woods, and losing myself in constant daydreams. I have a profound love for nature and all things wild and free. I married the most adorable farm boy, and we have three of the most amazing kiddos.

We love everything about farm life and pride ourselves in our strong faith and work ethics. Our children have a deep love for animals and nature, and they are so blessed to love and live this life. The farm and life we have built does not leave us the option to live in and experience the beauty of this country but traveling opens up so many opportunities to soothe my itch to pick up and move! I have made it a personal goal to travel more with my children. I want them to grow up with an appreciation for all the beauty in our world. My hubby will join in when he can. I would be thrilled to come to you or meet you at one of these amazing “must see” destinations, or anywhere in the world you would like me to tag along to! Let’s make it happen!  I would just love to have an adventure with your family. 

Must See: PNW Coast, Hawaii where the ocean meets the forest & mountains, Alaska, Glacier, Olympic, Yellowstone, Zion, Moab, Joshua Tree, Mt. Rainer, Rocky Mountains, Maine, Carolina Coast

"Motherhood is a million little moments that God weaves together with grace, redemption, laughter, tears, and love."

Investment

These sessions are for the beautiful mamas & families who want to truly explore and adventure this beautiful world. Mamas who want to truly let go and just “be,” all while I capture these moments that can never be relived. For a space in time I ask you to let go and be your most authentic selves. Snuggle your babies close, embrace your pregnancy, and love on your partner. I love details and emotion, the precious moments of you embracing the rawness of motherhood, playing in the wild with your tribe, or sneaking a sugar from your sweetie… I love everything about these special moments and I can’t wait to document them for you.

Wanderlust Stories begin at $600 and allow me to really get into your space and capture your authentic moments and connections. Unposed, real, and raw, these sessions are perfect for capturing the beauty of motherhood, and snuggly families here in Oklahoma or wherever your heart desires. I am always up for an adventure!  

A $150 Creative Fee is due upon booking to save your session date. The remaining balance is due one week before your session date. If we are taking a journey to an amazing destination I kindly ask that in addition to the session cost you pay for my travel expenses. 

Each session includes your sunset session at a stunning location, complimentary consultation to plan your session details perfectly, assistance with wardrobe & access to my client closet, and 30 handcrafted full resolution images from your session with the option to upgrade your gallery. 

** Milestone sessions for babies and toddlers  are offered for current newborn clients. Please inquire for more information. 

After Pay & Personal Payment plans are available, and discounts are given when maternity and newborn sessions are booked together. *Travel fees may apply to areas 40 miles outside of Temple, Oklahoma. 

Final Note – As a busy mama of three, I advise you to please book your session as early as possible. My calendar does fill up quickly, and I am only able to take a limited number of newborns each month.

"You won't know it's the last time until it doesn't happen again. The last time they ask to be picked up, to sleep in your bed, the last time they ask to hold your hand or snuggle on the couch. So try to treat each moment like it is the last time because once it stops and you realise those moments are over, they will surely be missed."

 

Let Me Answer that

After you have completed the contact form you will receive a welcome email. Once you have decided that I am the photographer for you,  let me know and I will send you my available dates. You will choose your preferred date, sign your portrait contract, and pay your creative fee. Once this process is complete, we will set up a time for a phone or Zoom call consultation to go over the details and your vision for your session.

I offer After Pay and Personal Payment plan options if it suits your family’s needs. Upon booking you will receive an invoice for your creative fee. This payment gets your session saved on my calendar. Your session type and payment plan arrangements will depend on how the next invoices are issued. Your final balance is due in full one week before your scheduled session date. Travel expenses must be paid upon booking.

I am located in Temple, Oklahoma but I am available for travel around the world. I love to photograph mamas and families outside during golden hour! you can absolutely travel to me! We have the most beautiful locations here in Oklahoma, and I would be so honored for you to experience my home. 

YES! I would love to travel to you to photograph your sweet new babe! 

All outdoor sessions are photographed 1 hour before sunset so we get that gorgeous golden hour lighting! Trust me, you want this light. It is STUNNING!

Yes!! I love doggies. I am a Boston mama myself. As long as your pup is non aggressive and you bring a leash (Refuge rules) they are welcome. You may want to bring some water for them as it gets HOT in Oklahoma!

You will receive your soft proof gallery within 2 weeks of your session date so you may choose your favorites. Then once the painting process is complete you will receive your finished, beautifully hand painted images via online gallery about 4-6 weeks after your session date. You will then be able to download your images and print release form your online gallery, and upgrade your gallery if you choose. I do not release copyrights, RAW images, or unedited images from your session.

Absolutely! Styling can really make your session more special. I will walk you through each step of the styling process with you. I offer the experience of a client closet for my clients too! I have carefully curated a closet of beautiful hand-picked and custom-made clothing options for mamas and their babies. My client closet is part of my client experience and free for those who choose to book a session with me.

For newborn sessions I like the minimal approach. I like a monochromatic style using earthy and neutral colors. I will send you a detailed questionnaire regarding your color and style preferences, and I will walk you through each step of the styling process. I offer the experience of selecting only the best and most unique props to use with your newborn session.

Yes! I would be thrilled to come to you or meet you at an amazing destination or document this season in your home! I love to travel and would just love to have an adventure with your family. Travel fees for In home sessions are additional for areas outside 40 miles of temple, Oklahoma. Travel fees such as flight, vehicle rental, and hotel/lodging are additional for Adventure sessions. These costs may be divided if more than one session is booked.

If you have been in Oklahoma long you know we have the CRAZIEST weather here! Unless it is pouring rain or tornadic activity, we will have our session as scheduled. I do not reschedule because it is cloudy. Sometimes the clouds give a totally different feel to the session.

For travel sessions we will work with whatever mother nature gives us!
