How much is this going to cost?
My pricing is divided into two parts: the session retainer and the product order.
Our average client investment is $1200. Your personal investment will vary based on your needs and desires for your photographs. Do you have an empty wall that you’d like to fill with portraits of your loved ones? Would you like to gift an album to your parents, grandparents, or children? Are you looking for digital images to share on social media or keep for archival purposes? We understand that everyone has different needs and desires for their session experience, for this reason, all sessions begin with a conversation. For a customized estimate for your session experience, please contact us.
SESSION RETAINER - $200
*This price includes my time + expertise, 60-90 minutes of session coverage, and a reveal + ordering appointment.
The session fee does not include products, collections, or digital files.
THE PRODUCT ORDER
1-2 weeks after your session concludes, we will meet for your reveal + ordering appointment.
This is when you will select your images and place your product order.
We will sit down together, enjoy a slideshow of your images, and I will be there to walk you through each step of the ordering process.
You will select the images that you love, then we will discuss options for products to display in your home and any gifts you may need for friends + family members.
This is a relaxed and smooth process where you can see and feel samples of the products I offer and I can show you what your images would look like on your own walls!
Average product investment is $1000, product investment will depend entirely on your budget and desires. Please contact us for a customized estimate.
What is a retainer fee and is it refundable?
A retainer is a non-refundable fee paid upon signing of your contract. It is used to give a piece of mind to all parties involved. Your benefit lies in knowing that your date is reserved for you and that under any circumstances I will not be pursuing other work for that particular time, regardless if a higher paying opportunity arises. In an unfortunate event that a session or wedding is canceled or postponed, there’s close to no chance that I will be able to book a client for the date that I have been holding for you. A retainer protects my business from losing income due to circumstances outside of my control.
What is a consultation?
A consultation is simply a conversation. This is where we will discuss your vision for your session and how you plan to display your images.
Upon booking, I will provide you with wardrobe suggestions and give you access to our client-exclusive style guide. I will provide tips for what to bring with you to your session and how to prepare for the shoot. The goal of the consultation is to get all logistics out of the way, so when your session day arrives, you’ll know exactly what to expect and you can relish in the moment and enjoy your experience!
Can I just get the digital images?
Absolutely! Our digital collections range from $450-$950
What should we wear?
After your session is booked, I will give you access to my client-exclusive style guide. This will assist you in coordinating outfits for everyone in the family.
Do you specialize in a certain kind of photography?
I specialize in photographing wedding + elopements, birth stories, and family/motherhood portraits. I am a full-service, lifestyle photographer. What this means is, I will walk you through every step of your photography experience. From our first contact through the delivery of your products, I’ll be there to guide you every step of the way.
What kind of products do you offer?
I offer a variety of beautiful products including gallery wrapped canvas, metal wall displays, albums, framed prints and wall gallery collections. We also offer digital collections.
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes, in any amount. Contact us to purchase and arrange shipping or pickup of any gift certificate!
Are you a full-time photographer?
Yes! My office hours are Tuesday through Friday, 9:00AM - 4:00PM.
What do most people purchase?
Our most popular item is our 10x10 signature album which includes 25 images from your session experience. We design the layouts of each spread in a lay-flat design to tell the story of the season of your life. Our albums are one of a kind and are meant to last so you can pass them down for future generations. Depending on the type of session, wall collections are also popular. Our collections have been designed with your needs in mind. You will have the opportunity to select the collection that best suites your needs, or choose only what you love for our a la carte menu of prints + products.
