All clients will sign a release form. Jessica owns all copyrights to all photos taken.

All prices are for a one location shoot. While I can do indoor photos with basic backdrops at my home/studio your pictures will have much more variety and the session will be more relaxed and enjoyable if you choose one of my West MI parks/outdoor locations! If you’re looking at locations outside of West MI there will be a charge of .50 cent per mile both ways. If you would like to add more than one location an additional charge may be added depending on the distance. Any travel time between locations will come out of the 1 hour session. To add an extra ½ hour to your session there is a charge of $50

Here are a couple things that you can do to really improve the quality of your photos!

A beautiful, bright, sunny day with clear skies is actually the WORST for outdoor photos. I know, it doesn’t seem right, but it is!
Shooting with lots of sun will give you harsh shadows on faces and anything white or light in color will be blown out and appear stark white in photos. The best weather for photos is overcast and cloudy. This will make softer reflections, fewer shadows, and the model will look great!

The best time of day is evening when the sun is not directly above the model. Therefore the worst time of day is noon or any time close to noon. Starting a shoot a couple hours before sunset is ideal. This is crucial for winter and beach shoots especially where there will be lots of reflected light!

For colors try stay away from white/pastel colors as they are easily blown out. Florescent colors are also not the best choice since they can easily reflect their color on your skin. This is only a suggestion and not a requirement though!
For family/couples outfits I recommend using a few different colors and mixing and matching them. It makes everyone look like they match without actually wearing the exact same thing. It gives a more natural look that way! For example, choosing the colors yellow, navy, gray, and maroon, but letting everyone wear their own style of clothing makes for more variety while still looking great together!

There is no extra charge to bring a few different outfits so long as there is a good area at the location available for changing.

Call or email Jessica with any questions or to book an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you!
