Newborn Session

***THESE PRICES ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION FOR 2016. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THESE PRICES DO NOT REFLECT CURRENT PRICING STRUCTURES***

- DRP NEWBORN SESSION -


Newborn sessions are very special to family members and friends. A time spent capturing those tiny details that make your newborn unique and remembering them in their first weeks in the big world. You will want to capture the little nugget and their first moments of life to continuously look back and remind yourself of the beautiful life that you have created. 

Your Session: Newborn sessions are very special. A time spent photographing ten fingers and ten toes, their yawns and precious facial expressions. Newborn images are best captured during the first 10-12 days after birth. The babies are generally smaller, sleepier and can easily be posed into positions. Sessions are usually held in your home but we can easily take them elsewhere if you'd like. I prefer to capture the precious moments of newborns as soon as possible usually starting around 6 days old because they're still small enough to curl into positions that works best. Another reason is because newborn acne and colic start to flare up around two weeks of age.

What To Bring: Bring any type of props you have in mind for your shoot. This is the type of shoot where you can never have enough props, hats, blankets, diaper covers and other cute baby mementos. Beings I do not have children quite yet my lack of props means you'll want to grab extras, I am slowly building up a stock of a couple different things but you can never bring enough of your own to play with. I typically like to stick with neutrals and earthy tones so most of my props reflect that style. If you're looking for a uniquely themed session to fit babies room or parents taste please bring that up so we can plan and get it set up for you! Also, if daddies not along for the photography session, be sure to borrow his ring, everyone needs a shot with mommy and daddies gems! If you're having trouble with coming up with prop ideas be sure to let me know and we can brainstorm together. I have a couple of contacts that offer great baby photography props and baby items. 

Time & Location: I do a lot of indoor shooting for newborns so please keep in mind that I'd love to come to your house but we need a lot of light. If you have a perfect place with a big window that's great and that's the best option. I like to allow four to five hours for photographing newborns that way  there's enough time for feedings and comforting should baby need it. Try to keep baby up for awhile before coming to your session that way we can insure baby sleeps well for photos. Try to keep the diaper loose so we do not get diaper marks in the photographs. It is also fun to do outside photographs with baby (weather permitting) in flower fields or other natural settings. If we need to go longer than the the time allotted I will honor that as I want to make sure we get the perfect photographs. We can agree on a location choice or if you have several places in mind we can arrange something that works. If you have a specific place that has sentimental value or significance to your make sure you let me know and we'll be sure to incorporate it into the shoot. 

Session Fees: A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session with the remaining balance due on the day of your session, prior to starting. The items listed below are what your session will cover. I will honor the session price quoted if you've requested one but prices are subject to change.

            1st Birthday Session

            ***THESE PRICES ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION FOR 2016. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THESE PRICES DO NOT REFLECT CURRENT PRICING STRUCTURES***

            First Birthday Session



            Your baby is no longer a baby, they're a one year old soon-to-be toddler! The best part of turning one, the cake smashing and learning to sit and stand on your own. Let's celebrate and capture these milestones as they will quickly fall into memory lane and you will no longer have that little munchkin running around squawking. 

            Your Session: This is a fun time, so let's make it all about that little one! I do have several local vendors I promote to create your smash cake if you're wanting to make something fun and unique. We will do a couple of shots of the little one to begin with and then will work our way into the cake smash session towards the end.


            What To Wear: This is all about being messy so don't be afraid to bring extra outfits changes. We will do the cute shots first to ensure that you get some nice fist year shots and then we will pull out the smash cake to play with. If you have any special outfits you want to take photos in make sure to let me know ahead of time so we can plan something to make the shoot extra special. I encourage you to bring some extra towels to clean up baby. 

            What To Bring: Bring any type of props you have in mind for your shoot. If you have a specific photograph that you like and want to re-create bring it to my attention, I'm here to make your memories turn into photographs so by all means share your ideas. Another typical thing to keep in mind is if you have a theme for their birthday we can create some fun props that go with it. If you're wanting to use these photos for 1st birthday invitations make sure to book enough in advance that you'll be able to get the prints ready to go as well. 

            Time & Location: For on location shoots, I prefer shooting right before sunset, that's always the best lighting but we can do a morning session if needed. I also do have a studio set up that we can use for this type of session with backdrops that will go great with their specific sessions with window light if it's available. Sessions usually last about two hours depending on locations and the amount of changes we do. If we need to go longer than the two hours I will honor that as I want to make sure we get the perfect photographs. We can agree on a location choice or if you have several places in mind we can arrange something that works. If you have a specific place that has sentimental value or significance to your make sure you let me know and we'll be sure to incorporate it into the shoot.

                      Engagement/Couple Session

                      ***THESE PRICES ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION FOR 2016. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THESE PRICES DO NOT REFLECT CURRENT PRICING STRUCTURES***

                      ENGAGEMENT/COUPLE


                      You're finally tying the knot with your best friend, or you've made a commitment to be besties for awhile! First off congratulations, you've made the commitment to have a partner in crime for the rest of your life. Through thick and thin you'll always have someone to walk through life with you. What I cherish most about taking photographs is that I get to capture real moments or real people that are experiencing real emotion. I love capturing the love you and your fiance share. My photography style is relaxed and simple. 

                      Your Session: Typically my sessions consist of a mix of candid and casually posed photographs. I use mostly natural lighting, if the weather permits, and we can do your session on my farm with the natural scenery or your favorite or fitting location for the theme that you're going for. This is all about you two and your relationship. Let's meet at a location that you two fell in love, or he asked you on a date at.

                      What To Wear: Bring along a couple different outfits or wardrobe changes. You can choose to change in the vehicle if we're at a location where the's no place to change. I suggest clothing without logos or wording as they'll stay timeless during the years to come. Instead of the old school rule of matching think of coordinating schemes to go with. Wear something that represents and reflex on your style or personality. If you're a cowboy don't get all dressed up in a suit and tie, those just don't look as flattering later down the line. But don't be afraid to go outside your comfort zone and dress up a bit, remember you will cherish these photos for years to come so put a bit of thought into what you'd like to see yourself in.

                      What To Bring: Bring any type of props you have in mind for your shoot. If you have a specific photograph that you like and want to re-create bring it to my attention, I'm here to make your memories turn into photographs so by all means share your ideas. If you have a specific theme in mind for the wedding make sure to bring items that will go with it. If you're using your engagement pictures for save-the-dates make sure to bring numbers to include on your wedding date. Also bring along family mementos that will be incorporated into your wedding. 

                      Time & Location: For on location shoots, I prefer shooting right before sunset, that's always the best lighting but we can do a morning session if needed. Sessions usually last about two hours depending on locations and the amount of changes we do. If we need to go longer than the two hours I will honor that as I want to make sure we get the perfect photographs. We can agree on a location choice or if you have several places in mind we can arrange something that works. If you have a specific place that has sentimental value or significance to your make sure you let me know and we'll be sure to incorporate it into the shoot. 

                      Editorial Engagement: Do you have a specific theme in mind? Is there a special theme your wedding is specifically shooting for that you really want to go above and beyond to make sure to include in your engagement pictures? An editorial engagement session might be just perfect for you! For an editorial engagement we will work together to come up with a highly stylized quality that goes with your theme. I will design story boards for the shoot with ideas that we've collaborated on and we will conduct the session closely with the story boards to get you the photographs and visions you and your fiance want.  

                      Session Fees: A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session with the remaining balance due on the day of your session, prior to starting. The items listed below are what your session will cover. I will honor the session price quoted if you've requested one but prices are subject to change.

                                Maternity Session

                                ***THESE PRICES ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION FOR 2016. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THESE PRICES DO NOT REFLECT CURRENT PRICING STRUCTURES***

                                MATERNITY



                                A maternity session is your time to show off your very special baby bump. A precious time in you and your partners life! A baby is a huge, life altering event and you'll want to cherish every special moment throughout your 40 week journey. This is a time to document those moments in time that are often forgotten or looked over after your newborn is here. I want to photograph that memory for you to look back on and show your baby the first moments mommy was blessed to spend with them.

                                Your Session: The best time to photograph your maternity photos is during the 30-34 weeks of pregnancy. You don't want to plan them too early because you want people to see your beautiful bump but we don't want to plan them too late that you might go into labor while posing in a lush field of flowers or make you feel too uncomfortable. Everyone is different so we can work out a time that works best for you.

                                What To Wear: Bring along a couple different outfits or wardrobe changes. For maternity sessions its best to wear something that shows off your baby bump and flatters that tiny little one growing inside. Some great examples are flowing dresses, yoga pants and a sports bra (for you sporty momma's), Some fitted tanks and any flowling fabric you'd like for a drapping type photograph. You can choose to change in the vehicle if we're at a location where there's no place to change or we can find a location that has access to a restroom for your comfort. I suggest clothing without logos or wording as they'll stay timeless during the years to come. Instead of the old school rule of matching think of coordinating schemes to go with if you choose to have a spouse in the photos. Go outside your comfort zone and dress up a bit, remember you will cherish these photos for years to come so put a bit of thought into what you'd like to see yourself in.

                                What To Bring: Bring any type of props you have in mind for your shoot. If you have a specific photograph that you like and want to re-create bring it to my attention, I'm here to make your memories turn into photographs so by all means share your ideas. Keep in mind that social media can work to your advantage, use Pinterest to find inspiration or visit my Maternity Board for other ideas! If you have a special family memento that you're planning on including with the little one bring it. I also suggest bringing some tiny baby onsies or other small items of the baby. If you're planning on taking gender reveal photos make sure we discuss the ways you'd like to go about announcing so we can plan props ahead of time if needed.

                                Time & Location: For on location shoots, I prefer shooting right before sunset, that's always the best lighting but we can do a morning session if needed. Maternity sessions usually last a two hours depending on locations and the amount of changes we do. If we need to go longer than the two hours I will honor that as I want to make sure we get the perfect photographs. We can agree on a location choice or if you have several places in mind we can arrange something that works. If you have a specific place that has sentimental value or significance to your make sure you let me know and we'll be sure to incorporate it into the shoot. 

                                Session Fees: A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session with the remaining balance due on the day of your session, prior to starting.

                                        - DRP SENIOR SESSION -


                                        Senior year of high school is not only an important time for the student, but for the parents as well. I want to make the transition of your teen soon-to-be-adult a little less stressful so allow me to capture their favorite memories of their high school years. I really want to get to know the teen, find out what types of events they're involved in. I like to make the sessions fun and relate closely to what your teen loves. Basically, I want to discover WHO your teen is and then portray that through their pictures. 

                                        Your Session: I like to suggest you get your session together depending on what type of scenery you intend to include. If you're looking for wheat, look into a June session. If you're wanting to do some fun fall colors then make sure you don't book any earlier than the end of August. This is meant to highlight some of the teens favorite things so be sure to include special touches that will really make their shoot fun!

                                        What To Wear: This all depends on the style of the teen. I suggest picking something you're comfortable in and go from there. Bring at least three or four outfit changes, you don't have to wear them all but you'll want enough choices to choose from while on spot. I suggest clothing without logos or wording as they'll stay timeless during the years to come. Instead of the old school rule of matching think of coordinating schemes to go with. Go outside your comfort zone and dress up a bit, remember you will cherish these photos for years to come so put a bit of thought into what you'd like to see yourself in.

                                        What To Bring: I encourage you to bring along anything and everything your teen is involved in. This means any type of clubs, sports or even special hobbies. Anything that highlights this point in their life. Big into sports? Bring along their bat, knee pads, jerseys and a couple balls. If they're into dance then have them pull out their old costumes to play with and photograph. And if your teen does nothing but sit at home and hides while playing video games, bring the controller along! Also, you might want to include a class ring if you have purchased one. 

                                        Time & Location: For on location shoots, I prefer shooting right before sunset, that's always the best lighting but we can do a morning session if needed. Sessions usually last about two hours depending on locations and the amount of changes we do. If we need to go longer than the two hours I will honor that as I want to make sure we get the perfect photographs. We can agree on a location choice or if you have several places in mind we can arrange something that works. If your teen is a sports player we'll of course work in some field time to get them out there in their element. If they're a race car driver, lets get on the track and take some shots with their car. If you have a specific place that has sentimental value or significance to your make sure you let me know and we'll be sure to incorporate it into the shoot. 

                                        Session Fees: $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session with the remaining balance due on the day of your session, prior to starting.

                                                Family Session

                                                ***THESE PRICES ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION FOR 2016. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THESE PRICES DO NOT REFLECT CURRENT PRICING STRUCTURES***

                                                - Family -


                                                Family pictures are something that will be used for years to come. The moments in time that will forever hang over your fireplace. The precious details of those tiny little ones that will someday grow into adults who will eventually be wanting their own family pictures taken. You'll want to capture these moments in time and save them so you can use them in the future to tell your grandchildren about how their mommy was once their size. 

                                                Your Session: What I cherish about taking family sessions is capturing the real and candid moments of your family. I love capturing the silly giggles, the heartfelt smiles, the "inside jokes" and even the oops moments. I like to shoot in a laid back and relaxed atmosphere with your family's ideal shots you're wanting to for sure capture. Typically I like to get a good mix of both candid and casual photographs.

                                                What To Bring: Bring any type of props you have in mind for your shoot. If you've got a special family item that you cherish, bring it. Don't forget changes of clothing, makeup (for touch-ups), hair accessories. Make sure to grab a couple changes of clothes if you're thinking of doing some different outfits. Think of things that will coordinate and not necessarily "match." If you're having trouble with coming up with prop ideas be sure to let me know and we can brainstorm together. I have a couple of contacts that offer great baby photography props and baby items. 

                                                Time & Location:  We can agree on a location choice or if you have several places in mind we can arrange something that works. If you have a specific place that has sentimental value or significance to your make sure you let me know and we'll be sure to incorporate it into the shoot. 

                                                Session Fees: A $25.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session with the remaining balance due on the day of your session, prior to starting. The photos posted for you to view will have my logo on them. Once your purchase your session I will give you a CD with all of the photos and their copyrights without my logo for you to keep.  

                                                Family Session Fee is $150.00

                                                Session Fee Includes:
                                                • One to two hours of shoot time

                                                          MINI SESSION

                                                          Your Session: This session is intended to be used for small events like six month pictures for you baby, your puppy before he gets bigger, a couple of head shots for your work newsletters, or even just snapshots for your Christmas cards. This is a short session that will deliver a few shots and get you in and out in no time at all!

                                                          What To Wear: Wear whatever feels comfortable! If this session is for a baby dress them up in something fun, if it's for your Christmas cards let's do something in theme, this is so versatile it's really up to you what you choose to wear. 

                                                          What To Bring: Bring any type of props you have in mind for your shoot. If you have a specific photograph that you like and want to re-create bring it to my attention, I'm here to make your memories turn into photographs so by all means share your ideas. Also if you have another other fun prop ideas for this mini shoot please bring them or let me know so we can get it set up perfectly for you.

                                                          Time & Location: For on location shoots, I prefer shooting right before sunset, that's always the best lighting but we can do a morning session if needed. I also do have a studio set up that we can use for this type of session with backdrops that will go great with their specific sessions with window light if it's available. Sessions usually last about an hour depending on locations and the amount of changes we do. Since this is a mini session you really do not need a lot of time to spend on these shots. If you have a specific place that has sentimental value or significance to your make sure you let me know and we'll be sure to incorporate it into the shoot.

To read more about my reasons for choosing to change this please read my post with the details. Instead I've choosen a "a la carte" style package so you can pick and choose what you'd like to include with your purchasing from your session.
                                                                          • Social Media Digital Downloads - $10 
                                                                            These are low resolution files with Dirt Road Photogrpahy logo on them to be used for social media sites. These are mainly intended for those who are wanting to share what fun they had during their session but don't have intentions of ordering other digital related prints.
                                                                          • CD with all edited images and full copyright release - $75
                                                                            This is for you to take your images and have them printed wherever you prefer. I realize that a lot of people have worked with other photographers and this is simply the easiest way for you to receive hard copies of your photograph's but 85% of clients do not even print their photos. I highly suggest printing them right away!
                                                                          • Prints off of website - 25% Discount 
                                                                            This is something I offer for all sessions so you can get lab quality prints at a lower price. I like to give clients a discount to encourage them to order right away so they don't forget! It's also a nice way to share with family members that they're welcome to order prints for themselves as well!
                                                                          • Proof book- $45

                                                                          • Additional Edits - $10/image

Keep in mind that by adding more images to your session it may take longer for you to receive them as I will need more time to complete your session.
                                                                          • Specialty Products - Prices Vary

                                                                          Individual Child Session


                                                                          Your baby is growing up too fast and every time you blink they add another two inches in height to themselves! It's time to get some photos done to capture their growth stages before you blink again!

                                                                          Your Session: This is all about your child and what their ever-growing personality is into. If they have a favorite movie or character lets find ways to incorporate that. If they have a larger than life personality that loves to be outside playing lets focus on capturing that! I want to personalize this session for your child to capture their specific age and really bring out their constantly evolving personality.

                                                                          What To Wear: This depends on what type of child they are. I suggest picking something they're comfortable in and go from there. Bring at least four or five changes, you don't have to wear them all but you'll want enough choices to choose from while on spot. You can choose to change in the vehicle if we're at a location where there's no place to change. I suggest clothing without logos or wording as they'll stay timeless during the years to come. Instead of the old school rule of matching think of coordinating schemes to go with. Go outside your comfort zone and dress up a bit, remember you will cherish these photos for years to come so put a bit of thought into what you'd like to see yourself in. Also keep in mind if we're doing something themed you'll want to dress them accordingly.

                                                                          What To Bring: I encourage you to bring along anything and everything your child shows special interest in! Anything that highlights this point in their life. Big into princesses or cars? Bring  them along and don't forget to throw in their special books that grandma gave to them too! Don't forget to bring along anything they've become particularly attached to, it's a keepsake they keep close to them and a great way to remember that stuffed animal they cling to for future remembrance. I like to visit ahead of time to discuss what specific set-ups you want so I have everything prepared ahead of time for when you get there.

                                                                          Time & Location: For on location shoots, I prefer shooting right before sunset, that's always the best lighting but we can do a morning session if needed. I also do have a studio set up that we can use for this type of session with backdrops that will go great with their specific sessions with window light if it's available. Sessions usually last about two hours depending on locations and the amount of changes we do. If we need to go longer than the two hours I will honor that as I want to make sure we get the perfect photographs. We can agree on a location choice or if you have several places in mind we can arrange something that works. If you have a specific place that has sentimental value or significance to your make sure you let me know and we'll be sure to incorporate it into the shoot. 

                                                                          Session Fees: A $25.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session with the remaining balance due on the day of your session, prior to starting. The photos posted for you to view will have my logo on them. Once your purchase your session I will give you a CD with all of the photos and their copyrights without my logo for you to keep. I ask that if you choose to use the photos on social media you use the ones with my logo on them. 
                                                                          Individual Child Session Fee is $75.00
