Booking Fee Includes:   Pre-Session Consultation + 60-Minute Outdoor Portrait Session + Premier Ordering Appointment 10 business days after your session + 10 digital files (that you select from at least 45 images) + $300 product credit to use toward purchase at your Premier Ordering Appointment + either (1) Custom Album 10-page album or Professional Hair & Makeup for 1 person.

$200 is due to Reserve your Session Date & Time, the remaining $300 is due the week of your session to finalize your booking.



1. Before your session, it's important to do a pre-session consultation. This can take place before or after you book your session, and can be done over the phone or in person at the studio. The pre-session consultation allows us time to get to know each other, to discuss location and clothing options and the details of your session, to go over pricing and available products, and to answer any questions that you may have.  

2.  Evening sessions typically begin about 60-90 minutes before sunset, however we can start a bit earlier than that if needed. Morning sessions typically being about 15 minutes before sunrise. There is no limit to the number of family members invited to join in your session. Props, pets, and clothing changes are permitted, but please be mindful of time when deciding to bring multiple outfits & large groups - your session will last approximately 1 hour.  Additional time is available to purchase, if needed.

3.  Approximately 10 business days after your session we will meet at the studio for your premier ordering appointment. You will then view at least 45 of your images from our time together. At this point you will select your 10 favorites, and determine which images you would like to see in your custom album. You will also be given a $400 credit to apply toward your purchase during this appointment. There is no minimum purchase required - you only purchase what you absolutely love! With several digital file packages, print packages, collections, heirloom albums and accordion books, metal prints, wall art and canvas options available, we will definitely be able to put together a package to fit your individual needs. At that time, your custom album will be sent to the printer and will be available within a few weeks. I will be the one to design your album and will include as many images from your gallery as possible.

Now, all you need to do is to click on the button at the bottom of this page for "Family Sessions", then select the date and time that work best for your family. If you'd rather schedule your pre-session consultation first, click the link that says "Schedule Consultation". For fall family sessions, the booking fee of $500 reserves your session date and time. $200 is required up front to commission Kat Oswald & secure your session date and time, the remaining $300 will be invoiced the week of your session and is due within 48 hours prior to the session date to finalize your portrait session booking.  A product credit of $400 will be applied toward your order when you come into the studio for your premier ordering appointment and place an order.  There is no minimum order required - you only purchase what you absolutely love.  (Please note, $400 product credit may not be applied to a different order, redeemed as cash, split between multiple orders on different dates, or transferred to another party.  By not attending the premier ordering appointment within 14 days of your session you forfeit the product credit.)


Returning family? I am am offering all returning families an additional $100 product credit as a thank you for your continued support. And, when returning families refer a new family that also books a fall family session this year, you will be invited to select (1) of 3 free referral packages as a heartfelt thank you.   

After securing your session, you can expect an email from me confirming your booking and directing you to my welcome site within 24 hours.
