+ 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, rather than a large quantity of photos with minimal editing. Pricing has been updated with the goal to avoid artistic burnout and give my clients the very best of me!
I have made these changes in hopes to cut down on editing time and to deliver your photos in a more timely manor.
Lastly, there is an additional travel fee of $0.65/mile applies for session locations requiring more than 20 miles of travel from Carterville.
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 lab 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.
