• A non-refundable booking fee/artistic retainer is required to hold your date, and applied to your session.

  • Package prices may change at any time but are locked in once you book the session. However, if you decide to return to purchase photos after your gallery has expired the packages and a la carte images will be the current pricing.

  • I will travel up to 20 miles outside of Albuquerque, NM (zip code 87108) for sessions. If you would like to hold your session at a location further than this, please contact me for a travel quote.

  • Please respect that package content and pricing is non-negotiable.



  • I am happy to work with any issues that may arise and I try to leave time in my schedule to accommodate these. If for any reason you need to reschedule your full-length session, please contact us as soon as possible.

  • The booking fee/retainer is non-refundable but can be transferred once to another session date within 30 days of the cancelled session. (If a session needs to be rescheduled again, a $50 fee will apply.)

  • If the full-length session cannot be rescheduled within 30 days due to the client’s schedule – the rescheduled session pricing is subject to the most current pricing.

  • If a mini-session needs to be rescheduled, the session is non-refundable, but it can be transferred to another available mini-session time slot or the session amount can be used towards a full-length session within 30 days of the original session.

  • If you or one of your family members is sick please call or email as soon as possible. When you are not feeling your best it comes through in the photographs.

  • Scrapes and bruises happen and can be seamlessly retouched. However, some places are easier to retouch than others (e.g. noses are very hard to realistically retouch due to their contoured nature). If your child has blemishes on his or her face over and above the simple bites and dots, please email me a picture and we can evaluate the situation together.

  • If a family emergency should come up in your family that makes your session difficult to attend, please make me aware as soon as possible. I will gladly reschedule your session in such cases.

  • I am happy to reschedule should an urgent situation arise. Please respect, however, the fact that I've prepared both time and equipment for your session; less urgent situations (e.g. new soccer schedule, an extra busy work week, a sleepover the night before your session etc...) are not valid reasons to reschedule. I appreciate your cooperation

  • If the forecast calls for more than a 50% chance of rain the day before your session or high winds, I will be in touch to discuss the possibility of rescheduling.  (Some of my favorite portrait sessions took place just after a storm cleared.  Please note that overcast days, light rain or snow, and some wind is not enough to reschedule.)

  • If the forecast for wind is above 15 mph, I'll be in touch the day before your session to discuss your preferences about moving forward or rescheduling. Wind can create unflattering hair and outfit issues that are often times beyond retouching.



  • Standard sessions are approximately 60 minutes in length.  I work quickly, especially when there are little ones involved. This means that there may be times when I am able to capture what is needed for our gallery before we reach 60 minutes. 


  • We are happy to discuss clothing options with you before your session, during a consultation.

  • Please limit the outfit changes to two outfits per person for family sessions. Outfit changes take away time from full-length session time purchased. Outfit changes for styled sessions, signature sessions and senior sessions are encouraged and more time is allotted.

  • Due to time constraints there will be no outfit changes for mini-sessions.



  • Within 10 business days of your session you will be presented with 15-65 images (depending on your session type) to view in the studio.

  • Though you may see many more photos being shot we strive to pick out the very best for your gallery. 

  • Your purchased digital images will be posted in an online password protected gallery for up to 2 weeks (14 days).  You will be able to view, share, and download these images.

  • There will be an additional fee of $50 if you need the gallery reposted after 15 days.

  • Pictures will be deleted one year from storage date of shoot.



  • Please allow up to 3 weeks for delivery after your print orders have been placed.

  • Print orders will incur a shipping charge.

  • We can only guarantee quality of prints processed through our own professional labs.

  • All sales of prints, digital files, and products are final.
