Your Photo Session Journey
01: Book your session.
To reserve a session date, you will need to pay the session fee of $349. This covers my time preparing for your session, photographing your session and editing your photos. You'll receive information on how to prepare for you photos. You may also contact me with any concerns you make have. * This session fee does NOT include any image downloads or products. *
02: Have your session & Pick your collection.
Photo day will come and go, then 2-3 weeks later I'll send you your photo gallery (40+ images). At this point you will choose the collection you want. All Collections come with high-resolution digital images. This is in addition to the Session fee.
Collection 1 - $349
17 high res digital downloads
Collection 2 - $550
Whole Gallery download (40+ images)
Collection 3 - $650
Whole Gallery download (40+ images), PLUS $100 Print Credit to online store, connected to your online gallery.
PLEASE NOTE: *There will be a $129 fee for Extended families. Also, a $100 Travel fee for locations outside of my normal travel zone. I usually do not travel over an hour away from Ellensburg. So sorry! I just like to stay close to my family and home.
03: Download your files & Shop your gallery store.
The best part of your session is getting your photos! Download them and order products you'll love. Getting prints/albums/etc. is a really important part of having photos taken. You want to continue to enjoy the moments by having something tangible. I've put together an online store, with an amazing print lab, that is connected to your gallery, so it is convenient for you to order right then and there. *Or feel free to take your digital downloads to a printing lab of your preference.
ALBUMS: I also offer to create an album for you. They are a stunning 8x8, timeless album and an additional $236. CLICK HERE to learn more about this album.

When will I get to view my photos?
You will receive a viewing gallery of around 50 images, where you can choose your portraits with an option to order prints. You can share this with family and friends. Your gallery will be ready in 2-4 weeks after the session along with downloading and printing instructions.
Will you be posting my photos on social media?
Images from your session may be posted on this site or social media platforms by Brindy Ruby Photography. If you prefer I do not post your images, please let me know and I will gladly honor your request. I reserve the right to use your portraits in any of my marketing or advertising. By scheduling a session with me, you agree to the terms and conditions stated here. While you receive images through digital download, I maintain the copyright to those images.
What locations do you use for newborn photos?
Newborn session are usually done in the comfort of your home. If it is warm and nice out, I would be up for an outdoor newborn session.
I also offer Fresh 48 sessions, which are done while you are still at the hospital with your newborn. It is called Fresh 48, because the newborn is usually around only 2 days old.
What do you mean when you say "lifestyle"?
When I mention lifestyle sessions, I am talking about sessions that are naturally posed. Lots of times the people in them are not looking at the camera. Sometimes this means the photos will be taken in the space you live in; your home. Examples of lifestyle photos are, family piled on parent’s bed, baby being snuggled as parent is looking out the window, everyone playing in the backyard, kids dancing with parents, etc. My goal with lifestyle photos is to capture everyday life and meaningful family connections.
What if I have to reschedule?
If you have to reschedule your session, no problem. Life happens. However, I ask that you give me at least a days notice or you may have to pay another deposit. It really depends on the situation. This hasn't normally been a problem. I think you will find I am pretty flexible and happy to work with you to schedule the best date and time. Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
Do I have to order prints through you?
You do not. I want you to have the flexibility to order what you want and when you want it. I will have a store attached to your gallery where you can order prints. Or once you download your photos, you can bring them to any lab of your choosing. I do highly recommend you order them through the lab attached to your gallery. It is high quality and they do great work.
Do you guide posing? I often feel awkward in front of the camera.
I would say at least half of the people I photograph will tell me at the beginning of a session how uncomfortable they feel getting pictures taken. 100 percent of them get their pictures back and love the results. I guide my clients through poses to give natural looking photos. There is no need to worry. We are going to have a fun session and get the pictures you want!
Do you do headshots or weddings?
As of now, I am not taking any business headshot sessions or weddings. During a session I am happy to snap a couple headshots/ an individual of each parent if you are needing one. :)

"Brindy is the best! She’s amazing at capturing the emotion of the moment, in an effortless unposed way. She excels at working with kids, and brings out their joy and the light in their eyes in every photo she takes. She’s flexible, caring, and fun. We first used Brindy for our family photos 4 yr ago, and haven’t considered anyone since. I recommend her all the time!!"
