pricing and packages

tell me more

so how does this work?

Family, lifestyle, seniors, newborns, maternity, engagements--you pick the location, and I'll tailor the session to what's going on in your life right now. My pricing structure is based on location, rather than session type, with weddings being the exception since the coverage is vastly different.

Included in the price for each session type:

  • session time: usually between 45 minutes to an hour. I adjust based on your needs--like if you've got little ones who wear out a little faster.
  • all inclusive, hand-edited, high-res photos (usually between 30-40) uploaded to an online gallery 
  • access to style and prep guides to help you look + feel your best on the day of!

The proposal add on can be found in the bonus features menu, as can the film add on and a discount for combining sessions. 

550 + tax

Studio sessions are a blast, and not just because you don't have to clean your house. We'll shoot for about an hour, with option for 2 outfits. Perfect for getting the in-home look without having to fold any laundry.


In home sessions are perfect for capturing the magic (and chaos!) of life. They're great for newborn sessions, but just as lovely for family sessions at any time. I'll come to you and we'll shoot for about an hour.

in home

450 + tax

Can be turned into a sunrise session if you're an early riser! We'll meet somewhere meaningful to you--a park you love or your graduating senior's school--and take advantage of the best light in Texas.


family packages

450 + tax

couples packages

~2400 + tax

My wedding packages are custom made for the small number of wedding clients I take on per year. Local elopements can expect to spend ~$1500, while local weddings can expect to spend around $2400. 


Get all the goodness of an in-home session without having to do a single load of laundry. The vibes satisfy the most austere of minimalists to the loudest of maximalists depending on where we shoot. The studio is--ahem--your oyster.


450 + tax

It's you, me, your boo, and the best light Central Texas has to offer. Or maybe it's your kitchen--is it pasta night? Wherever feels like home for you is where we'll shoot.

Let's make sure your proposal spot is *chef's kiss* perfect. I'll scope out your spot ahead of time, provide guidance on timing for lighting, and scare off (lightly) anyone who looks like they might get in your spot before you pop the question. 


I shoot digital first, but will take any excuse to break out my film cameras. add roll(s) of film to your day and get prints back along with your digital files. analog lovers, eat your heart out

My fiancé is typically uncomfortable when posing for pictures, but Claire’s calm yet silly demeanor helped to put her at ease. Claire was able to make us laugh and get genuine smiles from the both of us.

Claire did a fantastic job of flexing her plans to their mood and movement, and the overall experience ended up being not only smooth with fantastic pictures, but also enjoyable time together as a family.
