About | Contact Autumn Hope Gallagher


 I'm Autumn! I'm midwest based but am always jazzed to travel. I adore film photography (black and white - which I develop by hand in my own home), and utilize a hybrid approach (meaning I use both film and digital with most sessions). I also tend to dig for the story within each session, and am focused on helping my clients tell the story of their journeys. 

Portrait Sessions

If you or your itty bitty baby have a face you want photographed in a classic way that will still feel like home 50 years from now, let's do the damn thing. Fair warning:  I don't smooth wrinkles in photoshop, and won't make it my life's work to cure you of loathing having your photo taken (I cringe when someone points a camera at me too). I focus on wrinkles - whether it be your sweet baby's dry, peeling skin, or your stretch marks or laugh lines. Those are truly some of the most beautiful things anyone can ever capture. 

My promise:  Honestly? I know and feel the deep regret of being a mama/woman/human who hasn't let themselves be seen

If I'm capturing your baby, I promise to help you record something honest and timelessly beautiful.  Some day, you and your baby (maybe even grand or GREAT grand baby) will look up at the photos on the wall while you tell your stories. My promise to you is that a portrait session with me will afford you a few moments that allow time and place to fade away. You. Your babies. That's what matters. Now matters. 

Price: $325 (Includes a gallery of high resolution files for you to download and share.) Sioux Falls area within 10 miles includes no additional travel fee. Minneapolis and/or Duluth/Superior areas have minimal travel fees due to the frequency of my travel to those areas. Each session includes a collection of gorgeous images perfected by my favorite professional editor. 

Heads up: certain times of the year have higher demand, and travel fees vary based upon where I am at the time of your requested session. Please don't hesitate to reach out. I'm happy to make just about anything work, within reason. Photography makes me happy. 

I'm not here to cater. I'm here to capture. 


Please reach out for a price/information guide. I promise I won't spam you with obnoxious sales pitches: that's not my jam, even a little bit. I want to make sure that if you send me a message asking for my prices and availability, it's because you connect with my work. Send me your story. How you met, the engagement, what your dream celebration looks like. I want to know the good, bad, and the ugly. 

I accept wedding assignments no less than 2 months in advance, and popular months fill up an average of 12 months ahead of time.
