I charge an additional travel fee outside of Swansboro and Emerald Isle. Indian Beach includes an additional $35 travel fee.

At this time, we are not able to accommodate many sessions outside of Swansboro and Emerald Isle. Contact me for a quote.

How long is my session?

Outdoor sessions last anywhere from 45-90 minutes on average, however, we want to emphasize that we never rush a session or watch the clock. We are focused on your experience and the connection of your family. We are well known for a more natural approach to your session experience.

Do you offer mini sessions?

I do not offer "mini sessions" but occasionally offered THEMED pop ups at the studio. The best way to determine location shoots, creative projects, or collaborations is by subscribing to my mailing list!

What is your turnaround time?

Digital images purchased for studio sessions are typically returned same day or within 24 hours.

Outdoor sessions - it may take up to 5 business days during peak season (May-September) to receive your family session images depending upon scheduling of your in person viewing.
