Portrait Session Pricing
Session fees are for time and talent used to create the images, and cover costs involved in scheduling, consultation, and associated overhead. Prints or other finished product are not included in the session fee. By charging a fair fee upfront we are able to offer substantially lower pricing for finished prints.
What the Session Fee Covers
- photographers time/talent
- online proof gallery of images
- minor photo retouching
- portrait session for up to four people, add $25 for each additional person
- telephone or in person consultation of location, style and clothing
My goal is to provide you with the best images possible which may require a session to run longer.
A studio or outdoor location of your choice (extended travel will incur additional charges) will normally take 1-2 hours. This is includes time for to get acquainted, clothing changes and backdrop changes.
A session that is designed to get that cool photo, not just a studio shot. A session may last 2-3 hours and can be shot at a location of your choice (extended travel will incur additional charges) and can include a classic studio shot for the parents if desired. Remember that this is your shoot, and I can accomplish your goals if we know what they are before the session. Give a lot of thought to the location, clothing, props and backgrounds that will make this your unique portrait.
What better way to remember the magic of pregnancy than by having a pregnancy portrait made. Being with-child is a precious time, is not something that you can go back and do another time, and something you may wish you had later on. Choose what style you’re comfortable with, your happiness and satisfaction are what are most important in the session. You may want to have your partner or other children in the photos as well. Generally the 7-8 month are the best times to really show off that belly. Sessions can be done in studio, your home, or other location of your choice and will normally last 1 – 2 hours.
A studio session that will normally last 1 1/2 to 3 hours, for the parents and the newborn. This session should be scheduled for 7 to 10 day old time period. Extra time is needed with a newborn, most of the best shots will be when the child is sleeping, which it is up to the child when they will sleep. The look of a newborn baby does not last, by the time they are two weeks old the curled fetal look characteristic of a newborn is almost gone. Be sure to bring extra diapers, clothes, feeding supplies and any other items needed to care for the infant during this time.
Family or Group Portrait
This will be a on location shoot, either at your home or a location of your choosing. At a “Group Session” we will take the full group first and then do other arrangements and family groups as desired. It is important that you have someone who is not in the portrait, but should know at least most of the people, to help organize the groups and be sure everyone is it the right picture (I will not know “Uncle Ted” from “Cousin Joe”). Session normally runs about 1 hour.
This will be any type of session that does not fall into one of the above categories and will be customized to suit your exact needs.

I do not offer a special package as do many photographers, it is
a very simple fact that the more you order the lower the price can get. This is
simply because print sales are needed to help cover the cost of the session. The
session fee alone will not cover the overhead and behind the scenes time of the
photographer and other staff. Once this cost is covered the price can go down,
so I simply offer volume discounts and you can order exactly what you like.
Multiple orders may not be combined for discount and order must be placed within
30 days of the photo session.
|$200 – 300||10% discount on total print order|
|$301 – 500||12% discount on total print order|

|$800 -1250||20% discount on total print order|
|$1250-2000||25% discount on total print order|
|$2000 and over
||30% discount on total print order|
