I want to make it easy for you to have beautiful photos.

Most sessions take 30-90 minutes, but I’m not timing you. We’re trying to get relaxed portraits of the people you love, and clock watching is not relaxing. If your kids need a snack break, or you take a little longer than you expected getting into a groove, no worries.

Portrait sessions can be fun. For real. I love working with people who do their own thing, and want their photos to be an authentic expression of who they are. When you’re relaxed and having a good time, that personality shines through in your photos. You’ll not only have great portraits, but you’ll have a great experience as well.

From booking, to shooting your session, to delivering your files and products, my goal is to make everything hassle-free. Let’s have some fun.

 

 

Session types

I photograph love and family. I offer portrait sessions for babies, maternity, family, and engagements. I also offer a few specialty sessions.

Newborn portraits are done in-home, and can be more posed, more documentary style, or a mix of the two. Ideally, you want to schedule your session within baby’s first two weeks.

Maternity portraits are typically done on location, but can also be done in-home. We can focus on portraits of you, or involve the family.

Wildlings sessions are special sessions just for your kids. We take your little one out into nature and let them run free. These are great for kids that love being outdoors, and don’t love sitting still. See the wildlings guide.

Milestone sessions are usually shorter sessions, and can be for any of your child’s big milestones. Smash cakes, birthday portraits, or graduating to middle school.

Family portraits are either done on location or in-home. Families all look different, and we can include whatever arrangement of parents, kids, grandparents, etc. that you’d like to capture.

Engagement sessions are included in some wedding collections, found in the weddings tab below. However, you can totally book engagement portraits separately from a wedding.

Anniversary sessions are like engagement sessions, except you’re already married. Maybe you skipped the engagement portraits and regret it, or you didn’t love your wedding photos, or you just want to celebrate another year together. Why should newlyweds have all the fun?

If you’re interested in booking multiple sessions (like maternity and newborn), there is special pricing (that means a discount.) Get in touch and I’ll set you up.

 

 

Okay, how much?

Frequently asked questions

When can we schedule a session?
You can see my calendar for available dates.

What do you mean by ‘session fee’?
If you’re opting to just pay a session fee (which is $150), and purchase prints or files individually, then the session fee only includes my actually coming to take your photos. I’ll upload your proofs to a site where you can view them, and if you love them (which I obviously hope you love them) you can purchase digital files with print rights, and/or physical prints. I’m happy to send you all of the pricing information, and I do not have a purchase minimum (although I *do* encourage you to get some real, physical prints, and I wrote a whole blog post about why,) so there won’t be any surprises.

If you’re opting for any of the pre-built collections above, the session fee is included in the cost. You can also add prints or files from the a la carte menu to your collection.

Can I get your full pricing information?
Of course you can! I’m working on creating guides for all the portrait sessions I offer, and you can view them on the guides page. These pdf guides have information on the whole portrait experience from booking through delivery of your images, plus full pricing information (including a la carte options), and some helpful tips on making your portraits everything you want them to be.

What is a print credit?
I find that offering specific prints – say, 8 wallets, two 8x10s, and six 5x7s – is a hassle for folks. It’s never quite the right arrangement of sizes. Instead, I offer a print credit that you can put toward any of the products that I offer.

What if I’m totally not photogenic?
Take a look through my blog posts. Now consider that nine out of ten of those people told me that they aren’t photogenic, are nervous in front of a camera, and take terrible photos. None of these folks are models, just regular people who mostly feel the same way you do.

Do you travel?
Travel for portraits tends to make them prohibitively expensive, but if you’re interested, get in touch and I can price it out for you.

Will you photograph my conference/polka band/circus debut?
I mostly work with families. But a few times a year, I’ll cover a concert, or do some promotion photos, so if you have something interesting get in touch at info@mooreclick.com. If you’re running a local business, and are looking for headshots or behind the scenes photos, this page is for you.

What if I want some weird portraits?
Good! I embrace weird, and if you’re going for the coveted “strangest photography request” slot, you’ve got a pretty high bar to aim for.

But I just need one photo, not a whole session.
That’s not a question, but I’m gonna answer it anyway. Because I generally do lifestyle portraiture (and not a more rigid studio set up), it takes almost as long to get one great shot as it does to get twenty. It’s a process. That said, I do sometimes offer mini-sessions. Since they’re all done in a central location, it’s a little more like a studio set up, and the sessions are shorter and more affordable. If you’d like to know when those are available, sign up for the newsletter.

Do you work with LGBT or non-traditional families?
I sure do. My goal is to make everyone I work with feel comfortable and respected.

So when do I get these photos?
Your photos will be processed in two to three weeks. I upload the finished images to an online proofing site so that you can view them right away, and you can also download your files through them.

Select photos are also added to the blog and Facebook page. If you’re on Facebook, feel free to tag yourselves. If you’re more of an instagram person, I post a few to my instagram as well.

If you’ve ordered an album, you’ll have proofs two to three weeks after your photos are finished. You can make changes to the album if you’d like (swapping/adding/deleting photos), and choose an album cover. The album is usually in your hands two or three weeks after the order is made.

What’s online proofing?
I upload all of the finished images, and you’ll receive an email when your photos are available. You’ll be able to view and download all of your photos online, and can send the link to friends and family to view as well, and you are also able to order prints and other products through that service.

Can I print photos from the digital files?
You’ll receive a print release with your finished photos, so yes. Yes, you can.

Really?
Really.

I’m sold, let’s do this.
Just head on over to the contact form and I’ll set you up with all the information that you need. If you’re not a fan of contact forms, you can also just shoot me an email.

You’re doing your wedding your way. You want your day to be fun, and your photos to feel authentically you.

I’m all about easy and laid-back, and that goes for booking as well, so I offer four collections that tend to cover what most of my couples are looking for. All of them include online proofing and your digital negatives so that you can print your photos wherever you like. They also all come with some ready to hang wall art (think for a second about how many photos you’ve been meaning to get printed and framed. You can thank me later for including this with your collection). I’ve also included albums with each collection, to tell the story of your day long after everyone’s forgotten what we used DVDs for.

Maybe these collections aren’t quite your thing, and you’d like to put together your wedding coverage a la carte. Not a problem. Just let me know and I’ll get the full pricing list sent out to you. I’m happy to help you build a collection that works for you.

If you’re planning an intimate wedding or elopement, I’m also happy to build a custom collection for you.

If you are getting married between November and March, ask about off-season pricing.

Frequently asked questions

Are you available for my wedding date?
You can see my calendar for available dates.

What’s your approach to shooting a wedding?
I want your wedding to be great. If you’re relaxed and having an amazing time, it shows in your photos, and half of my work is done. I won’t be pulling you away to pose for things, and I won’t be telling you how to cut your cake. When it comes time to do portraits, I’ll give you plenty of direction (and not, “uh… stand over there and look cute.”) But for the rest of the day, I just want to capture all the little moments that make your day yours.

What if I’m totally not photogenic?
Take a look through my blog. Now consider that nine out of ten of those people told me that they aren’t photogenic, are nervous in front of a camera, and take terrible photos. None of these folks are models, they’re just regular people getting married. It’s my job to make you look great, and it’s my job to make you feel comfortable while we’re shooting, and you look fabulous.

Do you travel?
I love traveling, and I’m happy to shoot your wedding, wherever it may be. Pricing can vary, and I’m happy to get you a quote on that. If you’re in my usual coverage area (which is anywhere between Pittsburgh and Morgantown) you won’t have to worry about it.

Will you photograph my conference/polka band/circus debut?
Mostly, weddings and portraits are my jam. A few times a year, though, I’ll shoot a concert, or some promotional photos, so if you have anything interesting, get in touch! If you’re running a local business, and are looking for headshots or behind the scenes photos, this page is for you.

What if I’m having a weird wedding?
Good! I embrace weird, and if you’re going for the coveted “strangest photography request” slot, you’ve got a pretty high bar to aim for.

What if I want something that’s not in the package list?
I’m happy to do custom collections for people, and a la carte options are also available. If there’s something specific you’re looking for, I can find vendors for nearly anything. I’m always glad to work with you to make sure you get exactly what you want.

Do you do LGBT weddings?
I sure do. My goal is to make everyone I work with feel comfortable and respected.

Where do we start?
The first contact that I have with people is usually through email, although you’re welcome to call or text. If you’d like to get the booking process started, just fill out the contact form and I’ll get you all the information that you need. Then if you think we’re a good fit, we can meet up to talk about what you want out of your photographer, and go over your plans for the day. I genuinely love hearing about people’s wedding plans, so yes, I totally do want to hear about your idea for a pie bar. We can do this in person, or via phone/email/Skype. If you’d like to see if your date is available, you can see my calendar. If I’m not available for your date, and you’d like a recommendation for another photographer, feel free to email me at info@mooreclick.com. I have a lot of really talented friends.

So when do I get these photos?
Your photos will be processed four to six weeks after the wedding. I upload the finished images to an online proofing site so that you can view them right away, and you can also download your files through them.

Select photos are also added to the blog and Facebook page. If you’re on Facebook, feel free to tag yourselves and your friends. If you’re more of an instagram person, I add a few photos to my instagram feed as well.

If you’ve ordered an album, you’ll have proofs two to three weeks after your photos are finished. You can make changes to the album if you’d like (swapping/adding/deleting photos), and choose an album cover. The album is usually in your hands two or three weeks after the order is made.

What’s online proofing?
I upload all of the finished images, and you’ll receive an email when your photos are available. You’ll be able to view and download all of your photos online, and can send the link to friends and family to view as well, and you are also able to order prints and other products through that service.

Can I print photos from the digital files?
If you book any package, or add “digital negatives” to your a la carte pricing, then Yes. Yes, you can.

Really?
Really.

I’d still like more information.
Have you checked out the wedding guide? There’s tons of great info in there, but if that still doesn’t answer your question, feel free to get in touch.

I’m sold, let’s do this.

“I could not have asked for a better photographer than Caroline to capture our wedding day. She was extremely receptive to exactly what we asked for, prompt, professional and fun! Our pictures are gorgeous (says everyone, not just me!) I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and I certainly can’t see anyone being disappointed in her work. If you hire her, sit back and relax – you made an excellent decision!”
– Corey (see Corey & Mike’s wedding)
