Portrait Photography Investment
Session package (pre-shoot consultation, session and design consultation) investments vary according to type, size and location of session. Each photography session is tailored exclusively for you to meet your needs. Creative fees for a portrait session start at $395 and paper print prices begin at $65 for a 10" and smaller gift portrait print. Most of our clients plan to spend $1,500 to $3,000 on their custom photography session. However, we welcome all budgets. The non-refundable session fee is paid when booking your session and reserves your session date and time on my calendar. We offer special package prices for a Baby's First Year Plan.
We start with scheduling a consultation before the session at our studio, or on the phone, whatever is more convenient for you. During a portrait consultation we will discuss how you plan to display the artwork in your home or elsewhere, clothing choices, makeup, hair, background or location options, number of adults, children, babies or pets in the session, possible props that you might want to incorporate and how to prepare for the session beforehand.
We end the photography package with a design session where we pamper you with refreshments, project and review 30-40 proof images to order your artwork on a large screen, and consult you on framing and displaying your artwork. Please note that we do not place images online, send digital proofs via email or include digital files with sessions. We want to make sure that our clients see the best of our images, get quality archival prints and receive our advice on image presentation options.
For headshot sessions we consult before the session on what your objectives are in using the images. Whether it be for an actors portfolio, social media, dating, or business purposes each session will be guided to achieve the best results. Similar to portrait sessions clothing, background or location, makeup, hair, and preparations are discussed via a consultation. A headshot session for one person with two looks and two image files at the studio is $295.
