+ How to Book
Hi! I am so happy you're here!
Before making the decision to book, it's important to know if we're a good fit. I love my clients dearly and my business is a huge part of my life. Below you will find all sorts of helpful information and a link to my available session and booking website.
IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR 2022
You may notice that I have made some changes to my session options and pricing. Starting March of 2022. I have decided to focus on delivering a smaller amount of quality edited photos with true attention to detail, over a large quantity of photos with minmal editing. Pricing has been updated with the goal to avoid artistic burnout and give my clients the very best of me!
After our session together I will be sending over a softly edited gallery first. This means I will pick out all the best images from your session and add some basic editing such as image straightening and brightening. I will also fully edit 2-3 images so you will know what the final product will look like. Once I deliver the soft gallery you will have 7 days to choose your favorites. I will then fully edit your selected images and deliver them to you within two weeks. Most sessions include 30 images with the option to purchase more if you like.
I have made these changes in hopes to cut down on editing time and to deliver your photos in a more timely manor.
Unless otherwise discussed, payment is due at the time of your session and can be taken care of by cash, a check made out to Savanna Kathleen Photography or Savanna Burgrabe, Venmo or Paypal.
It’s important to know that I do not give print releases to Walmart or Walgreens. Sadly their printing quality takes away from my hard work. I offer super easy and convenient printing services through my online gallery and I have several online printing labs recommendations where you can print from on your own time. The good news is that online printing labs do not require a print release and their quality is 100X better!
PROPS, SESSION TIMING, LOCATIONS.. ALL THE FUN STUFF
I keep props, signs and decorations for sessions to a minimum but I’m always open to ideas. My goal is to always keep the focus on you and your family. I have a collection of antique quilts and chairs to pick from for photos outdoors. For newborn sessions I have plenty of wraps, headbands, hats, blankets, buckets and baskets! Natural light is my jam and 99% of the time, the sun decides on session times and where we shoot. For sessions in your home, we will pick a time where the natural light is best in your home, which may be morning or early afternoon. If you're interested in an outdoor morning session, we usually start photos between 8am and 9am. Outdoor evening sessions typically begin around 2 hours before sunset.
