I am an all inclusive photographer. My clients receive hand edited, high resolution digital images, along with full print rights to print as big as they want, from wherever they want, via an online gallery with each and every session, event, and wedding. Professional quality products are available to purchase through my professional lab at an additional cost.

I mostly do on-location sessions only.

I do have a small studio but use it for babies and children only. Want to know more about location, what to wear or even bring to the session? Please check out my Photo Tips page.
Please email me for current pricing. Yes, a retainer AND a signed contract is required to book your session on my calendar and holds your session at current pricing. If I don't receive a retainer + the signed contract within 2 days after we book your session, your session date will be up for grabs for someone else. PLEASE send in your retainer, ASAP! I book months in advance, but do sometimes have openings that are close by... first to pay retainer, gets it.
A session fee pays for my time, talent, editing time, use of my photography props, gas for my vehicle, upkeep on my camera gear and upgrading my camera gear.. which is often. When you book me, you are paying for a professional, tax paying photographer with 10 plus years of experience, that uses top of the line gear.. All CANON; Multiple expensive cameras that I shoot manually and not in auto mode.. and L Series lenses. Every image you receive back is hand edited in photoshop CS6 and lightroom, then uploaded to a professional online gallery, and then blogged on my professional blog.. which is what you're looking at right now. With all that mixed together, my pricing is going to be a little higher than your friend's sister, but not by much. Please message me for current pricing.
During your session, I take quite a few pictures until our time slot is up. I want to make sure that I didn't get someone blinking, looking away.. etc. Please come happy.
Within 3-5 weeks of your portrait session, or 7-12 weeks of your wedding, an online gallery will be uploaded with hand edited images in both color and black and white forms. These images will be available in this online gallery for ten years before it expires. You will also receive a print release, to print your images on whatever you want, and from wherever you want, in however size you want.
I do forever retain copyrights to all of my images. Please note: images are copyright protected, and it is against the law to edit them, copy them, sell them, claim them as your work, crop them, or enter them into a contest. If you have any extra requests about any of the images, let me know and I will edit them myself. There will be a $20.00 fee per each photo edit request. Copyrights to these photos will forever belong to Kristin LaRue of Kristin LaRue Photography. I will post a few of my favorite pictures of your session on my blog, facebook, and will occasionally use them to advertise for my business. When you book your session with me, I also consider that as you signing a model release. If you do not want me blogging about you or using the photos to show off my talent & your beauty, please let me know. I deeply respect your privacy. I do not sell/give back images that are unedited for those of you who do have editing software.. please don't ask. I consider my editing as big of a part of my photography as taking the picture.
Mini-sessions are offered along side of full sessions, year round. I do offer special themed minis that are discounted but they are held on special mini session days. It will be on a day of my choice, and you will get a 20 minute time slot on that day with me. Spots are limited and are always taken very quickly.
Those are great questions! Please do not edit my work. Do not apply any filters through an app, or attempt to change them in anyway. You are allowed to crop them to post as your profile photos, an to help achieve a certain print size. Anything else, please message me about. I appreciate your understanding that my editing is a huge part of my art. In order for my work to remain consistant, I appreciate it not being altered in anyway, shape, or form. <3 I LOVE for you to post your photographs to social media.. but only under a few conditions. Here are the rules regarding your gallery of images. These rules apply to anyone that downloads these images, clients as well as vendors that would like to use them to advertise. If you are a vendor that would like to use the images in commercial ads, please contact me for further information. Any photograph posted to social media requires a photography credit. Please include Photo Credit to: Kristin LaRue Photography, anywhere an image is posted. Along with the following hashtag #KristinLaRuePhotography
Even though I am a photographer, and it is my job to photograph, sometimes clients just aren't interested, or willing. Please understand that I am not responsible for images missed due to lack of participation from clients, and any session re-scheduled due to non participation will require a new retainer, and booked at an additional cost. There are no refunds. Re-shoots are possible ONLY if weather interrupts sessions. PRICING changes often. Normally around every 6 months. I do this without any warning and at my discretion. To make sure you get a session booked at current pricing, your retainer MUST be received within 2 days of the intial booking! After 2 days, your session spot is available for others, and if pricing changes, you will not be able to book your session at the older pricing. Please give a 48 hour notice before cancelling your session, and keep in mind, your retainer is non refundable. Retainers paid on themed mini session days are NON-TRANSFERABLE. This means you can't use that money towards another session. There is a no call/no show fee of $50.00. This must be paid before booking another session. Also, I have the right to refuse service to anyone! Thank you!
