Portrait sessions are a good time, lasting around 1.5 hours, and built to help you get over any last vestiges of being camera shy. Our time together usually incorporates 2-3 of your favorite locations within a given area. For pregnancy and baby photos, we often start in your home and then go to a park, and for family portraits we often go somewhere age- appropriate so we can photograph the kids at play in their fun time environments. Engagement is more sentimental, sometimes even heading to the spot the question was popped, and then moving on from there. A typical session will include all of your full sized digital negatives, a full set of up to 80 4×6″ prints, and all presented in lovely gift packaging. The cost for a full portrait session is $400.
A great option for some of my clients is a mini shoot. This is 45 minutes long, and a great way to catch up on family portraits without having to make the same time and money investment. Mini shoots occur at one location of your choice, and include the full sized digital negatives. The cost for a mini shoot is $325.
Sometimes you want to do something special with your images beyond your set of prints. Canvas prints, custom printed albums, and also photo printed memory boxes are all options for taking your images to the next level, either for yourself or a special present for family or friends. These are all options that I can share with you when you get your original set of images here at my home studio.
Often clients ask me for location and wardrobe ideas. I have lots of great ideas, so don’t be shy if you’re just not sure where to go or what to wear. We will establish what kinds of spots feel the most like you, and then come up with some cute clothes that fit your personality and the place. Props are always welcome too, and they can include anything from big to small. Big (one family wanted to be photographed on their boat!) to small (a very little dog named Cupcake). Also fun………… cool umbrellas, the family dog, a big old picture frame, or a large sign to be incorporated into one of the photos. This could say Happy Holidays, Thank you, whatever you like. So let’s make a date and start snapping!
