DETAILS

How can I book a session with you?
My advice is to book EARLY! During the busy season (summer - late fall) my schedule can fill up as far as 3 months out. E-mail me or jump on my contact me page and I will work with you to understand what you would like photographed and then we can select a date. At our session consultation, we will discuss all the important factors such as: session time, location, clothing, hair/makeup, and more!
When do you schedule your shoots?
Sessions are scheduled for Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays during a very precise time of day—generally the last two hours before the sun has completely set. (example: In June, depending on that day's light, we may start a session at 7:00 pm; in December, depending on the day's light, we would be starting a session at 4:00 pm). Newborn sessions are best in the mid-morning.
Do you offer digital images?
Yes; each of my collections includes a specified number of digital images, including the print rights to those images. Digital images (aka JPEG files) are not included in your session fee. All digital images, prints, products, and more are sold separately.
What is the investment?
I offer SIGNATURE (full) sessions and SIMPLE (mini) sessions. The SIGNATURE session fee is $200 and image/product collections begin at $595. The SIMPLE sessions begin at a flat rate of $375. I offer a full range of high-quality products including: high-resolution digital images provided in JPEG form, boutique mounted art prints, gallery-wrapped canvases, linen albums, press printed cards, custom image boxes, and more.
What is a stylized photo shoot?
My stylized photo shoots are growing fast in popularity among my clients! These specialty photo shoots have a bit more eye candy than a typical session and are more focused around a theme and adding details to the shoot that support that theme. Basically, we take something that you/your family/your child loves to do and set up a theme around it! For example, if you like going to the movies, we could set up a movie in the middle of a field. We can get a projector and screen along with tickets, popcorn, drinks and maybe even an old car for an old fashioned drive in feel. This type of photo shoot is a great opportunity to capture the essence of your style mixed with my talent! Because of the additional time and cost of stylized shoots, an extra stylized fee does apply.
What is in your bag?
My bright orange 3 Annies camera bag holds a Nikon D700 and Nikon D810, SB800 flash; as well as Nikkor’s 85mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.4, and 35mm f/1.4 lenses. I am an on-location, natural light photographer, and always have a step-stool, scrim, and reflector on hand.
What types of sessions do you do?
My favorite sessions to shoot are High-School seniors, children, couples, and families. I do not do event photography (family reunions, birthdays, parties, work events, etc). If after we chat, I find that you are interested in something outside my area of expertise, I would be happy to refer you to other great photographers in the area who may specialize in what you are after.
How do we pick a location and what if I don’t know what to wear?
Not to worry! I work with each of my clients to create a customized experience. Once you have booked a session, we will schedule an in-person or over-the-phone consultation to talk about all of those important details! I will also send you an online information packet with details and links to everything you want to know about a session, including: investment and collections; examples of locations (nature, urban, rustic, etc); photos and links of outfits/color schemes that I believe photograph well -- as well as recommended places to shop in town and online; detailed information about printing your images; examples of how to arrange the photos around your home and recommended sizes for print collections.
How can I have my products, clothing, or accessories photographed by you commercially?
Please e-mail me your interest with your name, business name, and website link. If we are a match for one another, I would be happy to partner together and I will respond with all of the pertinent information for you!
I am not near the Tri-Cities, do you travel?
I do travel for sessions! For sessions that require travel, travel fees are paid for by the client and an additional travel rate applies. Please e-mail me for more information!
How can I contact you?
I am excited to chat with you! E-mail is the best way ... brittney@brittneykluse.com. Please also take a look at my website www.brittneykluse.com to make sure my style is what you're after!

TESTIMONIALS

Lori VanMeighem senior and family client

Fun, creative, outgoing, hard working, your daughter's personal champion of beauty - that is Brittney Kluse! Both of my daughters loved their time with Brittney; each having a unique and "made for their personality" photo shoot! Brittney took time it get to know my girls and was able to capture their personalities in beautiful keepsakes that will last a lifetime!

Erin Ross family client

Have you ever wished, for just a moment, that you could freeze time? That is where our family's relationship with Brittney Kluse comes in. From our very first session we were hooked. She captures the beautiful moments in our family life for us to cherish forever. Her photographs alone speak volumes but you also get the professional, energetic, and engaging personality that is Brittney. Our children have loved her from the start. From newborn photos, to bedtime routines, to first days of kindergarten we have let Brittney into our life and never regretted a moment. We love her perfectly imperfect sessions to capture real life, the styling and energy she puts into her mini-sessions, and the full sessions that the entire family looks forward to. Even the photo shoots themselves are great memories and leave our kiddos asking "When do we get Brittney pictures again?!"

Casey & Vicki Miller family and perfectly imperfect session client

Brittney was so much fun to work with during our perfectly imperfect photo shoot. Brittney’s energy and enthusiasm made the photo shoot so much fun for our three kids. By the time she was finished, the kids were having such a good time they hardly noticed they were taking pictures! We will always cherish the moments Brittney captured of our family in our new home! Thank you Brittney!

Kayla McCormick senior client

Brittney always talks about how she vicariously lives here life through us as senior models, but the truth is ever since the day I met her, I have vicariously lived my life through her. She is not just a talented photographer, capturing perfectly imperfect moments, but she has been an amazing life mentor to me as well. I have truly learned that over the past 21 years, life will give you way more than you are expected to be able to handle. Brittney has taught me; whether she knows it or not, to live everyday to the fullest no matter what challenges you may face. I hope that someday I am at least half the person she is, as a wife, a friend, and a mom. I couldn't be more thankful to have been blessed with such a fun and supportive person in my life!

Chayla Marquet mentoring client

Brittney's one-on-one mentoring session was life changing for my business. I was floundering trying to keep my passion for my business alive, in addition to balancing my home duties as a wife and mom. Brittney's workflow coaching helped change my business! She taught me her precise camera settings to get my images perfect SOOC. She reduced my editing time to under a minute per image. And gave me an entirely new workflow to minimize time on my computer and maximize time with my family. I'm finally working less and making more and it's all thanks to the three hours I spent with her! It's not just mentoring - it's an INVESTMENT in your business!

MENTORING

I'm excited that you're interested in my mentoring! It's truly the best compliment you could give me. The common thread I see in my mentees is the desire to RISE UP against some challenge in their business - which is exactly why my mentoring sessions are called RISE! I am an open book and am proud to have helped 330+ photographers, over 4 years, across 3 continents, RISE UP to their challenges.

I am so grateful for all that Brittney shared during our mentoring session, but most importantly how she explained the information. The biggest challenges that I walked away facing are my pricing of course which I immediately revamped and haven't had any problems booking which I am so thankful for...and the other was being an industry leader. Brittney really made me dig deem and figure out what I wanted from my business - that sunk deep into my heart and resonated in my soul. I think about at least one thing from that mentoring session once a day. It really stuck with me. I feel like you really challenged me to be a better ME, not just rattle off what you do and expect me to just copy it. It was extremely refreshing and challenging in all the right ways. -Shannon Cyrus Wright

I offer three different ways you can mentor with me:

  • RISE ONLINE: Skype/telephone
  • RISE WITH ME: In-person (you come to me, or I can come to you)
  • RISE ON YOUR TIME: Download my comprehensive business plan and soak it in at YOUR pace
