"Not only does she take fabulous pictures, but also she really cares."

Kelsey with DRP has been the best. Not only does she take fabulous pictures, but also she really cares about her seniors and their parents. She took time to facetime with my daughter and I as we were picking out senior outfits and giving her opinion on how well they meshed together to make a fun and exciting photo shoot.

Your viewing and ordering session typically takes place 1-2 weeks after your session and is held at our home located in Wilber, Nebraska. During your ordering session you will view all of your edited and re-touched images as well as the different prints and products that we can create with your images. I will help walk you through the process and collections as well as give you descriptions of products and suggest what fits best for your session style. We can work with a variety of budgets to accommodate and make your session memorable. This is the perfect time to purchase gifts to cherish for a lifetime!

Let's chat about the details!

01: INQUIRY & BOOKING

step 01 of 05

Once you've booked your session we will send over a client lounge packed with information including location, style guide, links to purchase specific outfits and more. This is the best time to tell me exactly what you want with your session! Start thinking ahead of time what your ideal location and style is. A week or so before we'll follow up with discussing finalized clothing options to ensure we're on the same page with everything. I'll keep an eye on the weather as well to make sure we have beautiful skies and perfect sunsets.

Planning the perfect sesh!

02: PLAN AND PREP

step 02 of 05

It's shooting day! Just relax and be ready to have fun! I will give you tons of ideas and direction throughout your session so no prior modeling needed. ;) I find that the best photos are the candid ones that happen between the posed ones, we'll make sure you're comfortable and relaxed, even if it means me making fun of myself. If there is something specific you want, make sure you let me know ahead of time so we can arrange it. Parents are of course welcome and are actually encouraged to help you feel more comfortable and we want them to feel included in the process as well!

Let's have fun and capture those candid moments!

step 04 of 05

Once we have finalized your print/product/digital image order and all payments have been made we order and deliver your products. This is my absolute favorite part of the entire client experience process. Delivery days are like getting to see all your beautiful gifts unwrapped and in your hands. I love watching families flip through photo books and get excited about their customized frames. Something about holding your own photos in tangible gifts truly makes my heart happy.

Happy delivery day!

frequently asked questions

Your session fees cover my time, talent, props and full edited images in an online gallery. It does not include digital files, prints or other products. Those are sold separately in create your own collection packages or a la carte at your viewing and ordering appointment after your session.

01. Does my session include prints, products or digital images?

In order to have a timely turn around we'd prefer that, but we're not locking you into any decisions you aren't comfortable making.

02. Do I have to place an order at the ordering session?

After your session our typical turn-around time is 1-2 weeks for the editing process when we then schedule your viewing session. Your prints and products will take 2-3 weeks to get in once the final payment has been made on all products and the contract is signed.

03. When will my photos be ready to view/order?

Senior sessions are held on week nights. Newborns are scheduled during the day (typically around 10 am) and must be within the first ten days after baby is born. All other sessions can be scheduled as our calendar allows. Please note we highly recommend booking at minimum a month in advance for your session as we do fill up fairly quickly. 

04. When should I schedule my photo session?

Just bring yourself! We our course love when you decide to include props but they aren't necessary. We love to encourage you to think of incorporating anything that has sentimental value to your crew, if that means bringing along grandpa's antique tractor or maybe a vintage car, please do! 

05. Do I need to bring anything to my session?

We've got an entire client lounge dedicated to things like this! There's a page specifically filled with local locations and example images from those locations. Before your session you will receive a questionnaire that will help us learn more about you and your vision.

06. How do we choose a location?
