Des Moines Family Photography

We love getting together with families and taking fun family photos. We also enjoy taking portraits.

What Our Sessions Include

All sessions are made up of three parts, a consultation, the actual shooting session, and a gallery review and ordering meeting.

Initial Consultation

Our first meeting is the consultation. During this meeting we share how we work and plan your session. Our preference is for this to take place in your home, but we can meet elsewhere if you choose.

This is a super important time for us to get to know you and for you to get to know us even better. During the meeting, which usually lasts 30 minutes to an hour, we will cover things like what to wear and where we are going to take the photos. We’ll also discuss what you are looking for from an art work perspective. This is also when we book your actual session date.

Shoot Day

Once on location, we will get right down to it. Be assured that we will help you with posing and make sure everything looks perfect in your photos.

Once we have been everywhere you wanted to go to get your photos, it’s time for us to get to work editing your shoot.

Review and Ordering Day

We will schedule a review and ordering session to take place about two weeks after your shoot day. During the time between the shooting session and getting together to pick out photos, products, and finalizing your order, we will have edited your photos and narrowed the selection down to the best images. During your review sessions we will work through what the best artwork is for your home and help you pick out the best ways to share your images with family and friends.


Depending on what is ordered, it takes between five to ten business days for your order to be ready. That sounds like a broad range, but it really depends of what you ordered. For instance, an album takes a little longer to design and produce. Once everything is ready, we will package it up and deliver it to you in person. Nothing pleases us more than being there to see your faces when you first see your art work. We know you will be blown away.

Session Fee (We don’t have one!)

Our senior sessions do not have session fee. We do require a booking fee, but that fee is applied in whole towards your purchase of digital and physical prints and products.

Our clients generally spend between $800 and $2500 for their senior images, prints, and products.

Booking Fee

A $100.00 booking fee is due at the time we schedule your consultation session. That fee is applied in whole to your order.
