Session Planning

Why schedule a session?

It is my goal to provide you, the client, with high quality images that have value to you and your family. In my opinion, pricing should be honest, fair, and straight-forward, and also reflect the value of my time and talent. Please refer to the following Pricing Guide, and feel free to contact me about special photo engagements not listed for more specific pricing.

Pricing Guide

Portrait & Family Sessions: $80 (flat-pricing)

IMG_5958A typical session will be around one hour, depending on location and what the customer wants from the session. Backdrop or themed sessions can be arranged, however please notify in advance so I can help you to find props and backdrops that fit your needs. This is the most popular package among my clients, and includes family portraits, engagement photos, newborn photos, etc. This type of session will usually result in 50+ photos. I do not charge any additional sitting fees or deposits, and do not charge more for large groups, however I ask that you book no more than 6-8 people for a session.

Event Photography: $200 (price varies)

Mini Sessions: $40

Upcoming Mini Sessions:

Payment and Delivery of Images

Half of payment is due at the time of the session, and half is due at delivery of images. All images will be delivered via Google Drive link. Upon delivery, images should be downloaded to a safe place within 30 days. Flash drives and additional discs can be purchased for $5 each. It typically takes 1-4 weeks to deliver photos, but please notify the photographer if photos are needed by a certain date.

Rights are relinquished to print the photos, and to publish them to social media with credit to the photographer. A photo release form can provided upon request if needed for printing photos.

Cancellation fee: Because I do not charge a deposit or sitting fee and dates that I am available are limited, I ask that you do not cancel your session within one week of the scheduled date. If cancelled within one week, a $20 cancellation fee will be charged to the client.
