Kids or Family Portrait Session: $750
Includes: 1 hour session at the location of your choice, image retouching, $25 print credit, and the digital files from the shoot (usually 80-150 images) in both color and black and white. I will work with you ahead of time to determine the setting, clothes and time of day that best fits the look you want.
Event Photography: $500/hour
Includes the digital files with quick turn around time. Please note: If you are looking for a wedding photographer, hire someone who specializes in weddings. I have photographed a number of weddings but now will only do small weddings (under 50 guests). If you have a wedding with more than 50 people, please hire a photographer who specializes in weddings.
Executive Portraits/ Dating and Social Networking Portraits/ Senior Portraits: $500
$500 per person photographed. Choose outdoors or on location at the work site (either with a background or with the work setting as a background) or I can advise you for the best option for your business. Traditional corporate headshots take approximately 20 minutes per person, Outdoor sessions are 30-45 minutes (depending on outfit changes). Session fee includes the high resolution images and retouching on photos. Companies pleaase contact me for discount pricing for 5 or more portraits done in one session.
Photography Lessons: $250 for 2 hours
Many people have bought the gear but now don't know how to use it. There are a number of classes around town, but as a mom I know it's hard to find time to go to the classes, get a sitter etc. So I come to client's homes (or a location like a park) and go over any questions you may have about photography, how to do basic shots, how to make your family candids better etc. Our talk will be tailored to your needs and your kids can be there as well (both for convenience and they act as great subjects).Split the cost with friends. Maximum of 5 students for the lesson.
Order a gift certificate for a portrait session, or a birth announcement session for a parent-to-be. Some customers have hired me to photograph a birthday party as a surprise gift to the birthday girl/boy. I can also work with you to offer a custom gift. Gift certificates can be mailed to you or directly to the gift recipient.
Why do you offer the digital image files and not charge more for prints?
We all want the digital files to keep and print at our leisure. If I were booking a photographer I'd want the digital files at a reasonable price so that's what I offer.
What does your competition charge?
Studios and other photographers often charge less for the session fee (usually around $250), but then charge between $20-$150 for a 5x7 print. Some sell a CD with the digital files but usually for $600 or more and most only offer low resolution images (low resolution images can only be enlarged to 4x6 or 5x7 size). In some instances, photographers and studios charge around $200-$300 for the session and $100/print. That may be reasonable if you only want 1 image, but odds are they have captured at least 5+ images that you love. So, in order to keep those images, you will need to buy 5 prints. You will leave the transaction spending $800 or more and will not have the negatives or digital files to keep.
