Session Types & Fees

We are excited you are exploring our services. Here you will find details about all our sessions that we offer.

General session fees cover the time for your session at my Dubuque, Iowa home studio or on location, pre-session consultation, access to a large selection of props and sets, use of our designer maternity gown collection, beautiful editing of your portraits and your ordering/viewing appointment.  With these kinds of sessions, all art products and digital files are purchased separately and are not included in the session fee unless noted otherwise. Most of our clients invest anywhere from $400 to $1100 on their digital images and products. However, everyone’s needs are different – some spend a little more and some spend less.

We also offer Petite and Fresh 48 sessions that include digitals and an online gallery. These sessions are perfect for those on a strict budget and looking for smaller gift size images. (8x10 and smaller). These types of sessions are very limited so please contact us for more details and availability.
