During a private photo shoot with Grace, your memories will be captured at your home or at an outdoor location in a natural light setting. Play at the park, explore your backyard or tickle little feet on your living room floor.
Your photo shoot will include the photographer’s time, talent, photo editing, and travel for up to 15 miles outside of Chicago. For travel more than 15 miles outside of zip code 60618, please add an additional $50 to the session fee. Currently, I am mostly accepting session in the city of Chicago.
A session can last from 60 to 90 minutes allowing time for a snack, sippy cup, diaper or outfit change.
$400 for immediate family.
$25 for each additional person.
Newborn Session Fee
I only book a few newborn sessions a year. Please inquire, and if I am unavailable I will recommend a talented counterpart. My style for newborn sessions is more lifestyle focused. I do not use many props if any, but can accommodate with a basket, bow ties, and a headband collection for limited posed images. A newborn photography session can last up to 3 hours and includes immediate family members. Add $25 for additional persons during the sitting.
To achieve photographs with specific poses, the best time to photograph your new joy is before he or she reaches 10-12 days of age. Being a new parent can be hard to schedule a session, but this does not mean you cannot capture beautiful and meaningful images of your baby. Just keep in mind, most newborns after this time period usually like to wiggle, which means still images will be photographed best when they are sleeping.
A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to hold session appointment. Deposit amount will be deducted from final session fee. Payment in full is due at the day of the session.
*Parking - The session fee does not include any parking or entry fees to venues.

Final images are selected by the photographer and the photographer reserves the right to show only photographs that meet the photographer’s standard.

Professional prints are available and encouraged for purchase but not required. Please note that printing of photographs at various printing labs may produce false color and brightness variations in your prints. Prints may not appear true to their edited state based on choice of printer.
What to Expect
Expect to create magical moments by simply spending time with those near and dear to you. Special images will be captured as your children interact with you and one another, explore their surroundings or cuddle in your lap. Bring snacks and an outfit change if you wish and lots of love and laughter.
