Lightwork lifestyle portraits are far from the ordinary. Unlike traditional and discount portrait studios, you are not limited by time, locations, or creativity. With years of fine art training and experience, we offer you both flexibility and creativity in lighting, equipment, and composition. Also, we’re not satisfied until you’re satisfied – if, for any reason, you’re unhappy with your photos, we will reshoot them until you are.

Sitting fees for portraits start at $200 depending on your needs. All portraits include an online gallery and mobile app for sharing your images with friends and family. We also offer a plethora of products (including digital files) that can be packaged with your sitting or purchased separately.

General lifestyle and family portrait sittings at 1-2 locations are $200. This includes maternity, children, pets and family portraits, or a combination of all of the above. The choice is yours. These are our most popular portraits, and allow the most creative and artistic freedom. There are no time limits, though generally the sessions last about 1-3 hours depending on your timeline and the images you want to capture. Many times I will provide props and other materials to make these photos unique and special. I am available to do wardrobe and accessory consultations if needed, and if there are any special images you’ve seen or thought of that you’d like to have captured, I am happy to make those for you. Since we try to be flexible and accommodate your desires, a phone and/or email consultation about what kind of photos you want is always a good idea.

Newborn photos in our studio start at $250 for the sitting and can be packaged with retouched digital files and/or products. Newborn photos should be scheduled within the first 6-10 days of birth. Since the arrival of a new child is rarely on schedule, I generally ask that you book your session before your child’s birth, however we can fine tune timing once your new baby is home with you. In-home newborn sessions are $400 and up for the sitting and last 3+ hours depending on your needs, which includes setup, shooting, cleanup, and all the feeding, comforting and diaper changing your new baby needs! Since we will be working in your home, you’ll have access to all of baby’s stuff to make this session relaxed, natural, stress-free, and fun.

Large family groups (over 10) are $250 for the sitting. These sittings include as many combinations and poses as you’d like in one location.

Full resolution DVDs with reprint rights are available for purchase.
