We do primarily portrait photography, which includes all types, such as families, couples, children, seniors, pets, and professional business portraits. Generally, we charge a Session Fee of $100 for the first hour (usually with a one-hour minimum unless stated otherwise), or $150 for two hours. As the length of the session increases, our charge per hour decreases. Shoots are tailored to fit what you want, and we work with you by providing several different options in a way that you find what works for you. We will travel to your location and normally work in different areas in studio setups and in outdoor locations.
The Session Fee covers the photographer’s time and equipment, and in most cases, at least one assistant. Our time invested is much more extensive than just the session itself. It also includes all set-up and preparation time, digital photo processing on each photograph taken, creating proofs, creating and uploading web galleries, and general website maintenance. In general, no prints or digital files are included in this cost. Digital files and/or a Print Credit may be offered in a package price. A Print Credit can be used to purchase only our photographs printed on paper, not for other photo-related merchandise.
Your photos will be uploaded and displayed in your own Photo Gallery on our site. Your Gallery can be password protected for your privacy. In your Gallery your photos will be available anytime for you to view and purchase. The prices are listed in the Shopping Cart. Be sure to follow the links that take you to any discounts or current promotional offers.
Business portraits are done in our studio locations or at your business. These sessions are shorter than the general sessions described above and are usually 15 minutes in length, or less if we’re doing sessions with multiple employees at their business place. You would view and select three images during your session and they would be burned to a DVD and delivered the next business day.
Digital Photo Editing
Photo editing, in addition to what we do in our basic processing, is available at a rate of $40/hour with a quarter hour minimum. Some examples of what you might have done would be to remove braces from teeth, change eye color, change eyes from one photo to another (if they’re looking the wrong way), change heads from one photo to another, remove elements from the scene, add elements to the scene, or even change the entire background. The options are almost endless. Call or email with a description of what you want done for a specific price quote.
