The Pricing

Lots of photographers choose NOT to put pricing directly on their websites, preferring that you call and talk to them about what they offer and how much it is.

 NOT ME!

Nothing is more maddening to me than when I've spent a lot of time browsing the internet for a service or product and cannot get a simple answer to how much I can expect to spend. It's not that I am just shopping for the lowest price - far from it - in fact I usually DON'T go with the lowest option! I just want to be able to make my decisions based on all of the information that I can get.

Also, there is a very wide variety among photography business models. Your experience with a wedding photographer who sells packages based on coverage and time can be very different than a studio photographer who sells beautiful large custom canvases, or the brand-new amateur who gives you a CD of unedited images. It's important for both of us to know what the needs and expectations are! So here it is:

There is a $99 session fee, payable on the day of your session. It covers the time spent capturing the session as well as editing, proof preparation, and online presentation for the viewing and ordering of files and products. It DOES NOT INCLUDE any images - prints, files, CD, or products. All of the following collection, print, and product pricing is in addition to this session fee. My clients have told me  that they prefer having a fair session fee, which they understand is needed to cover my time, so that they don't feel "gouged" by paying very high print prices after they have fallen in love with their images.

In a nutshell, you pay the $99 session fee at the time of the session, and later, after the images are edited and ready to order, you choose whatever collection is best for you...either $399, $599, $699, or $899. The best news? You don't have to decide until you actually see the images! There is no risk that you HAVE to buy what you don't love.

My pricing is based on digital files, since that is what the vast majority of my clients prefer. Over the years that I have been in business I have found that people who support custom photography understand that the value of an image lies in its creation, and they love the freedom that purchasing the files gives them. You are free to use the images to make your own cards or gifts, and print endless copies of your images for you and your family up to 11x14. Prints 16x20 & larger require more care when printing and should be ordered separately; the files that I offer are not designed for those.

Ordering is easy. Simply choose the collection that best meets your needs - there is one for every budget!

SPECIALIZED SESSIONS

SWEET LIL’ MOMENTS SESSION

I occasionally offer shorter mini-sessions for those times when you just want to capture a sweet moment in time - a lost tooth, a visit with grandparents, or a new puppy. These are $250 at the time of the session. They include a 20 minute session in one location (no outfit changes), and your choice of 5 digital images from a selection of 8-10 edited proofs. Contact me to let me know that you want a mini-session and we will discuss available times, or subscribe to my newsletter to find out special dates and offers! 

HEADSHOT SESSIONS

Need to update your resume, marketing info, or social media profile with a current headshot? Fear not - I help you through every step of the process! Read more about why you need an updated headshot here and how I guide you through that. It's $100 for your choice of 2 digital files. That includes two outfit changes, and 3-5 proofed images of each outfit. You can see examples of my headshots in my gallery.

MULTIGENERATIONAL FAMILY SESSIONS

A favorite of mine! These sessions are only available in two ways: as a minisession of the entire family group (5 files from a selection of 8-10), OR as a Special Moments Collection. I have extensive experience with these types of sessions, so you can trust me to lead you through the process despite that brother-in-law who is already whining about doing it! Just kidding, but you know it takes a lot of planning to get everyone on board. You can read all about it here: EXTENDED FAMILY SESSION INFO

ALSO AVAILABLE:   PROFESSIONAL QUALITY WALL PRINTS, CANVASES, ALBUMS, AND STORYBOARDS
