When you book a single session whether it be family, newborn, etc. pricing will be split into 2 parts.
FIRST: SESSION PRICE –
You will pay for the session itself. This covers the cost it takes for me to shoot your session, edit your pictures, and upload them into a personal online viewing gallery which is password protected for privacy. No prints, digitals, or any products are included in this fee. Depending on when you are booking your session, you can pay this fee all at once, half-n-half, or $50 ($100 for cakesmash) then balance. Balance must be paid within one month prior to session date (or due date). All payments paid in are NON-REFUNDABLE. If for whatever reason you are unable to make your appointment, a giftcard will be given for you to use on another session whether it be the same type or a different session.
SECOND: PRODUCT PRICE –
Now that your session is finished and you’re able to view your photos it is now time to pick what you’d like to purchase from your gallery. We have many products to offer including digital images, professional grade prints, custom books, birth announcements, frames, and canvases. You can purchase these a la carte or in a product package. You can check out the total list of those prices and details here — PRODUCT PRICING
While I know this may seem strange to split a session into 2 parts of purchase, we found this the easiest way to fully customize your session. Since no 2 people are alike and budgets differ between families and so do visions as well as needs, this way makes the possibilities endless and gives you the control in selecting the best session experience for you and your budget.
Now single session booking is the best option if you are wanting only a select session or certain sessions that are not offered in a session package. But let’s say you KNOW you are going to want for example, baby’s entire first year photographed. Paying for each session, plus products can get expensive real quick. It’s definitely an investment but to help lighten the load a bit when booking multiple sessions we’ve created a few packages that includes both the sessions and products in one. So ultimately you’ll be paying much less as compared to paying per session. And we offer payment plans on all of our session packages! Just ask us about customizing one for you. But we do offer a 10% discount on select packages if you decide you want to pay in full. It can be a daunting task in deciding whether to make the investment in a session package and I never want to persuade anyone one way or the other, because only you and your family can decide if it’s right for you. But my word of advice is always the same, think realistically. Of course first and foremost, can you realistically afford it. Second is likewise as important realistically what do you know you’re going to want. I’ve had many of clients say they’re only going to purchase a few sessions and they end up coming back for each as if they bought the package and spend way more and regret it.
Single Sessions that Include Digitals
We do offer seasonal mini sessions (15-20 minute session) throughout the year that include digital images. Mini sessions are offered throughout the year and are a first come, first serve basis. So if you’re wanting yearly photos and don’t mind a timed session, these are a great option to get pictures updated for yourself and gifts for families. We announce these dates and details on our social media accounts so be sure to follow us on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM. You can always check out our store to see of any mini sessions currently being offered at our STORE.
We also offer a couple sessions that include digital images as well. You can check out links of each session below. Click on the session you’re interested in and you’ll be redirected to its page that includes pricing and detailed information about each.
SESSIONS WE DO NOT OFFER
As much as we’d love to offer every type of photography service, unfortunately we do not offer certain services. Our newborns and families keep us busy and we want to give those the time and attention they deserve.
We do not currently offer wedding or wedding related services with the exception of second shooting for wedding photographers. My second shooting style is journalistic and candid (pictured below), if you’re interested in having me as your second shooter for your big day this could be requested of your chosen wedding photographer. Many wedding photographers have this included in their wedding package price already so you can request me as the second. If they do not offer this in their package, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk pricing.
We do not currently offer senior portrait photography services. We have compiled a list of very talented senior portrait photographers in the area. You can check a list of those photographers HERE.
