I’m so happy you’re here!
I have created a page to list my remaining session dates Summer and Fall 2021, I will try to keep this updated as much as possible. The information below will give you details on booking and lots of helpful information. At the bottom you'll see what dates I have available. If you have questions please feel free to email me at [email protected] or send me a message through my contact page.
As some of you may know, I have had a studio located in downtown Carterville for the last two years. In March I made the decision to only offer in-home/lifestyle and on location session. If you're not sure what an in-home or lifestyle session may look like, please shoot me a message. I would be glad to show you examples! If you're looking for a more traditional studio setting, I totally understand and would love to refer you a few local studio photographers!
Unless otherwise discussed, payment is due at the time of your session and can be taken care of by cash, a check made out to Savanna Kathleen Photography or Savanna Burgrabe, Venmo or Paypal.
It’s important to know that I do not give print releases to Walmart or Walgreens. Sadly their printing quality takes away from my hard work. I offer super easy and convenient printing services through my online gallery and I have several online printing labs recommendations where you can print from on your own time. The good news is that online printing labs do not require a print release and their quality is 100X better!
PROPS, SESSION TIME, LOCATIONS.. ALL THE FUN STUFF
I keep props, signs and decorations for sessions to a minimum but I’m always open to ideas. My goal is to always keep the focus on you and your family. I have a collection of antique quilts and chairs to pick from for photos outdoors. For newborn sessions I have plenty of wraps, headbands, hats, blankets, buckets and baskets! Natural light is my jam and 99% of the time, the sun decides on session times and where we shoot. For sessions in your home, we will pick a time where the natural light is best in your home, which may be morning or early afternoon. If you're interested in an outdoor morning session, we usually start photos between 8am and 9am. Outdoor evening sessions typically begin around 2 hours before sunset.
