This fee covers the artist’s time and talent during your session, our creative post-processing and retouching of each image in your gallery, as well as 20-30 images in your final gallery. Approximately 3-4 weeks after your session, we’ll welcome you back out to the studio where you’ll view your gallery and place your order.
Portrait sessions last 1 – 1.5 hours. For newborn sessions, please allow 3-4 hours for comfort and care. Sessions take place on-location inside the Des Moines metro area or, for our babies, in our Adel-area studio by appointment. Travel is available for all sessions except newborns, please contact us to learn more.
