Session Fees

In order to provide my services to clients in a way I believe is fair, I try to keep the cost on purchasing photos as low as possible. While I know in our modern era people enjoy seeing their images online, I believe that photographs were meant for print. This is why I provide each client with a slideshow of all edited photos from the session and reasonable prices to purchase photos for print.

Portrait Session Fee*

My portrait session** fee is $150, which includes the actual shooting time and all post-processing services for each session I conduct. This price also includes a digital slideshow of your images, showing each individual shot in both color and black & white.

"Portrait Sessions" include individual portraits, head shots, and family photography sessions. I will also include newborn sessions, unless a First Year package is purchased.

First Year Package

The first year of a baby's life shows more growth and development than any other year in a person's life. Since babies change so rapidly, families will want more photo sessions than you might want on a regular basis. The recommended schedule for the first year is newborn (within the first week is preferable, but can be up to the first month, as needed), 3-month, 6-month, 9-month, and first birthday. Rather than paying for each session individually, you can order this package (5 photo shoots) for $600 (a savings of $150). This package will include the digital slideshows and professional proof books for each session.

Other products like grandparent books can be added in to this package for an additional charge. Contact me directly to talk about additional services.

Ordering Prints

In order to maintain the integrity, color, and quality of my printed work, I do not provide digital files for printing on your own. I am happy to provide web-quality images with my watermark for social media purposes, but I prefer to control the prints through a professional image lab. I work closely with my lab to make sure that your photos will look as great as possible and that they will last. All photos come with a luster coating to protect from fingerprints and other issues that could arise over time. I also believe that photos were meant to be displayed and that you shouldn't have to pay an arm and a leg to get them! My typical prices for standard sizes are listed below. I have the ability to create many more types of images (canvases, cards, etc.), on an individual basis.

  • Wallets (set of 4 OR set of 8 mini wallets)—$8
  • 5 x 7—$10
  • 8 x 10—$15
  • 11 x 14—$20

You can see the attached Portrait Collections PDF for packaged deals for large orders. The packaged deals are the same regardless of session type (wedding, Seniors, or portraits).

*All session fees are due by the day of the photo shoot. Please provide 24 hours notice upon rescheduling or canceling a session.

**Event fees and First Year sessions are not included in this amount. Contact me directly for a event quote.
