"You will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory." ~ Unknown
A custom photoshoot with The Flash Lady Photography is a mutual investment you not only place in me, but that I also place in you! My studio specializes in experiences catered to each family to ensure that this is not "just a photoshoot", but an opportunity to create lasting memories of your most important milestones. I only want you to buy what you love after you've seen the images, not be filtered into a pre-selected amount in advance. Most often, clients fall in love with so many of their images, and it's great to have a variety of options that can fit each experience, in a different way, as desired.
While we live in a digital world that is focused on "living in the now", I want you to have these photos as a gift to the past as the years pass by. To be able to smile each morning waking up and looking at your new baby, your precious toddler, your growing family, and your holiday memories on the walls and table tops. To have your child pull out the photo album from the coffee table and ask about what a mess they made at their first birthday cake smash. Or to gaze lovingly as a grandchild shows their grandparent how family photos compare to when she was a child. We can't do that if photos only live on a device. This is why ALL printed products from my studio include a corresponding digital file. So you'll enjoy the quality of professional printed products and the keepsake of their digital partner.
To make certain that I deliver the highest quality to each of my clients, I only work with a certain number of families each week.
You have the choice of not only how to book your session, but how to cherish the images!

Heirloom Quality - Choice - Value - You have options for your images!
Many times, I see families that have been filtered into thinking that once they've had a professional photoshoot taken and images received that the photographer's work is completed. But what value do your images have if they are not immediately enjoyed? What value do they have if YOU, the Client, need to figure out how to have them printed with only a dwindling few, low-quality consumer options at your disposal? Here at The Flash Lady Photography, you can be sure I will not only deliver an amazing photoshoot, but guide you through a wide variety of professionally printed and digital keepsake options using archival rated materials to last for generations to come!
Photography Pricing FAQs
It's never too early! And especially if you require a Saturday slot (newborns are photographed on weekdays only), these are often booked sometimes months in advance. Newborn due dates should aim to book in their 2nd trimester, especially if we are doing maternity photos as well. Cake Smash & other custom birthday themes take time to create and decor to make/purchase, so usually 4-8 weeks ahead of time at least is recommended. If we can fit you in with shorter notice, we will always try! So don't fret if you aren't within these time suggestions.
First, we'll start with a phone call (or in-person consult or email) to get to know each other and make sure that we're a good fit! I'll provide you with information about how my sessions work, our complete pricing menu to review, and then we'll get your date/time booked in the calendar. From there, the planning begins together!
All sessions are scheduled by appointment only per zoning requirements. Typically I offer weekday morning appointments for the little ones, weekday evening appointments (seasonally) for families/on location sessions, and morning Saturday appointments for studio sessions. Seasonally, I'll also open up Saturday afternoon/evening appointments as well or as needed by the client. I am closed on Sundays.
Yes! As we want our clients to have the best of printed & digital products, all of our printed items include the matching digital file (or files) based on what it is. This way, you'll have items ready to hang, admire, gift, as well as the digital keepsake. For those who would prefer to only purchase digital files, we have limited quantities available.
Mini sessions are a very limited speciality photography event that takes place during the year at specific dates/times only. One of our most popular events is our Santa Experience & Family Christmas sessions! Follow along on our social media pages and join our newsletter for first access to these events!
