Hi, I'm Kelly!  I'm a mother to four beautiful, busy, hilarious kids.

My favorite things aside from my little people are terrible movies, ice cream and baby toes.  I would love to learn some of your favorite things too, and incorporate them into your session.

I love to capture life's little moments and would love to help you capture those moments for your family.



Find answers to our most frequently asked questions.  These policies are Aubade Photography's terms and conditions, as well as a contract for your services. Please review our policies and bookmark this page for your records.

Aubade's Return Policy

The customer understands that certain areas in a photograph will be in focus while other areas will be rendered as soft focus.  This condition is known as depth of field.  The customer understands that levels of light can vary within a photograph.  The light on you (the client) may be different than the light on the background.

Defective products are defined as damaged goods, out of focus photographs or incorrectly exposed photographs.  If you are dissatisfied with your photos, we can reschedule a one time re-shoot so that we can fix anything that did not meet your expectations...and it won't cost you another cent.

Please note that your payment is non-refundable. We are happy, however, to work with you to find a new time to hold your session if you must reschedule or a re-shoot is necessary.

Aubade's Privacy Policy

We do NOT rent, sell or exchange your name or other personally-identifiable information to third-party companies for their marketing purposes.

We do provide your personal information to reputable organizations that help us to fulfill your order. For example, we use companies to verify and process credit card transactions. We may share your information with others who help us analyze sales data, maintain our records, and provide other services for Aubade Photography such as collect site navigation information. In any case, these third parties are not authorized to use your information for any reason other than to perform their contractually assigned functions.

We may be required to disclose your personal information to third parties if necessary to comply with applicable laws.

Event photography is the exception to this policy.  Within one week of booking an event, a down payment of 25% must be paid and the cost must be paid in full by 2 weeks prior to the event.  Please inquire about our payment plans.

Aubade's Travel Policy

We have a set 30 mile radius around Eau Claire for most of the sessions we offer.  Our rate for additional mileage outside this radius is $0.50 per mile, in 5 mile increments. (Ex:  30 miles outside the radius for whichever session type you choose would be $15.00)

Aubade's Cancellation Policy

If it is necessary to cancel your appointment due to illness, emergency or weather related issues, we will reschedule your session for the next possible day.  As stated in our return policy, your payment is non-refundable, but we are willing to accommodate your schedule as necessary with respect for extenuating circumstances.  Note:  With regard to birth and newborn sessions, we are willing to accommodate necessary changes in schedule due to baby's timing.

Denied or Returned Payments

In accordance with our payment policies:  If your check is returned for insufficient funds (or because the account is closed, etc.) you will be charged a $20.00 service fee in addition to the original cost of your session.  Payment in full, including the additional service fee, must be paid within 2 weeks from the date of notice.  If your payment is not received in that time, we will turn your account over to collections.

"How Do I Get My Pictures?"

A sneak peek from your session will be uploaded to Facebook within 48-72 hours if desired.  All edited photos will be available within 4-6 weeks of your session date.  They will be uploaded into an album in the portfolio tab of our website and can be found on the client albums page.  This album will be password locked and you will receive your password via email/Facebook/text as specified at your session.  This album can be accessed from your phone/computer/tablet and downloaded for personal use as outlined in your print release.
