If you’re looking for a gift for yourself or a special someone, or if you’d like to have fashionable images of yourself, or if you just want to celebrate your own special beauty with some glamorous photographs, then a private session may be perfect for you.

The biggest difference between a private session and a model portfolio session is your images are between you and me. They are yours and yours alone, and you are free to privately do with your images or prints as you wish. You select the genre – fashion, lifestyle, lingerie or swimsuit – or mix and match a couple, and we will work together to create a special session tailored to your desires.

1 Hour Private Portrait Session

  • Your session will be personalized for your desired genre and to create your envisioned type of images. Typically, you and I will spend 30 minutes discussing your ideas prior to your session so I may plan the appropriate setup to fulfill your expectations.
  • $200 session fee.
  • One person per session only.
  • One-hour shoot in studio or on location*.
  • As many wardrobe changes as you can fit in during the session.  This is your time, so I would suggest one or two changes at most.
  • Access to your own private password-protected gallery to review images.
  • $100 credit to use towards the purchase of digital files, prints, or other merchandise. 
  • Will include as many images as possible for you to choose from. Usually, between 12 - 18 different edited images. These images will be at my discretion so I cannot guarantee a specific number of poses. 
  • $50 non-refundable retainer is required at booking and will be used toward your session fee.
  • Professional make-up is available for $50.00 and requires 30-45 additional minutes.
  • Professional hair styling is available for $50.00 and requires 30-45 additional minutes.
