No one should dread getting their photos taken. My personal goal for each session is to have you walk away smiling and thinking, “Wow, that was easy AND fun!” You don’t have to worry about not knowing how to pose. I’ll be your personal coach for the entire evening. There are no wrong poses. The most important thing is simply to be yourself. That’s who I want to know. That’s who I can’t wait to photography. Because I’m a firm believer that everyone is beautiful, and the world needs to see that side of you. That’s what I’m here to do. To be your friend, your photographer, and your memory maker. Every session, I commit to making you feel like you’re on a coffee date with your best friend. I want you to feel as comfortable as possible. (Think sweatpants and mug of tea – or coffee if you’re so inclined – kind of ambiance) There will be laughter. I promise.
I am also a shoot and share photographer, which means your photos will be delivered to you within 3 weeks after your session date through an online gallery that you will be able to download and share immediately! You have the option to order prints directly from your gallery, which will be fulfilled by one of my favorite professional printing labs. But if that’s not for you, feel free to download and print from any other printing company you prefer! (Just make sure to read this blog post first!)
Custom USB’s are available for purchase with any session for an additional $25. (This USB can be used for future sessions as well! Just bring it to your next session and your photos from that session will be added to the USB as well!)
***All sessions require a $50 booking fee that will guarantee that date and lock in your session. This is not an additional fee, but is deducted from the entire cost of the session. If the booking fee is not paid, Photography by Caitlin reserves the right to keep that date and time open for other clients. The booking fee will be paid through PayPal and will come up in your email as a request for payment from Photography by Caitlin.***
Family Portrait Session: Being rather young myself, I like to think of myself even younger at heart. My favorite parts of family sessions are when I get to see that family connection you have and when the giggles start pouring out of your kids, and also when I have the chance to get one on one with your sweet children. We are on the same level, both because I sit down and get really open with them, and because I like a lot of the same things kids do. Just call me Peter Pan. This full session will last from 1 to 1 1/2 hours. We will be getting group family shots, individual shots of kids, mom and the kids, dad and the kids, etc. ($185) **Booking fee due at time of scheduling.
Lifestyle Session: Your home is the place where memories are made. It’s the place everyone is more comfortable. It’s the place where your little’s feel the freedom to be themselves. Your home may not grow in size, but those kids do. Their rooms change from nursery to teen décor. And possibly get a little bit more messy. 😉 The couch where you all sit and snuggle? Let’s capture that snuggling going on in your favorite place in the house. My lifestyle sessions are up to 2 hours in your home. I become a fly on the wall while you be a family. I’ll guide you through activities and loving snuggles so that I capture that joyous, loving feel you get when you’re all doing your favorite thing. ($200) (See previous lifestyle sessions here) **Booking fee due at time of scheduling.
Moving Portrait Session: Sometimes, pictur s don’t do justice. Those hands twisting in your hair, the grins, the way they walk, the way they play with each other, and the love in your eyes. All things that change with every passing year. The way they look is captured on photos. But the way they move, the way you smile, their cute voices, they are all lost in photos Keep those memories close by capturing it forever though video. My moving portrait sessions are the exact same as my family sessions, except that I will be capturing little video clips throughout the session. You will still receive the same amount of photos, but will also receive a 1-2 minute video edited by me. Moving Portrait sessions will take up to 2 hours at one location. ($225) (See examples and previous moving portrait sessions here) **Booking fee due at time of scheduling.
Senior Portrait Session: I love spending time with my seniors. They are at such a pivotal point in their life, and it’s so much fun to hear their hopes and dreams for the future. The sky is the limit for them. Each senior session includes up to 1 1/2 hours of shooting. If you would like to change into multiple outfits, each outfit change is an additional $30. Each outfit change will also add around 15-20 minutes to the session. ($200) **Booking fee due at time of scheduling.
Mini Portrait Session: Because I want to give you the most value possible, I know sometimes you just want a quick update on family photos, or you’re just a couple and you don’t need the full hour and a half of photos. Or maybe you just want shots of your kids. Then this for you. It’s a quick 30 minutes of getting the basics. I try to meet the needs of every family dynamic, and this is one of the best ways I know how. ($120) **Booking fee due at time of scheduling.
Basically, I love what I do. No matter where in life you are at, I’m here for you. I’m here to create some wonderful memories with you. I believe your story is worth telling. And I want to give you the opportunity to shine.
