How much will it cost?

The average customer should expect to spend $750 and up for products and packages. Session fees start at $245. Please contact me for specific prices.

What locations are available?

Anywhere in the Kansas City Metro Area. We will want to discuss your interests and likes to decide what location would work best. Many locations are free, others have a small fee which we can discuss. We have beautiful parks on both the KS and MO sides of the State Line. From Lenexa Park in KS to James A Reed in MO... from Shoal Creek or Leavenworth to Pleasant Hill or Spring Hill... from Downtown KC to the City Market to Unity Village... or even your High School or Home, are all available at our fingertips. The question is, what is your style... casual or formal, greenery or architectural, playful or driven? What is your vision of who you are? What makes you special and unique? We will then discover the locations that fit your desires. We would be happy to travel to St. Louis, Lawrence, Colorado, Texas, or beyond for an additional fee. Just ask! Our priority is to make it impactful and meaningful!

How do I prepare for my session?

Guys - Get your haircut no earlier than 2 weeks before your session. That way if something goes awry, you will have time to let it grow or fix it.
Gals - If you are going to have hair and make-up done professionally, allow plenty of time for the artist to complete it, before the session.
Make-up needs to be applied 10% more than normal.
Make sure your nails are pretty and if you will be wearing sandals your toesies, too.
Bring your hair brush, lipstick, and a bottle of water.
Get plenty of rest the night before.

What should I wear?

Something you feel good in! Think layers and textures. Have fun with jewelry, shoes, glasses, hats, props and accessories.
Low contrasting colors work best. This allows you to be the focal point, not your clothing. Avoid whites and neon colors. I would be happy to discuss this in detail with a clothing consultation.
