We offer many types of portrait photography, including, but not limited to, the following:
· Graduation / Senior Pictures
· Group & Individual
The costs for portrait photography can be divided into three major areas. The first is the portrait session where your individual, family, or group portrait is taken in the studio or at your selected location. The second area to consider for cost estimation is the combination of prints you will want to purchase from among the completed portrait proofs. The final area involves any optional services or features you would like to include to modify the appearance of your final portrait image.
Portrait Session Fees
We charge a fee for your portrait session. This addresses our costs for any development and photographer time involved in producing your portrait images. The fees vary depending on the nature and duration of your portrait session. Listed below are the fees we charge:
Session Duration Wardrobe Changes Fee
Up to 45 Minutes and up to 3 wardrobe changes - $50.00
Up to 90 Minutes and up to 6 wardrobe changes - $100.00
A typical portrait session is usually completed within thirty to forty-five minutes. Most portrait sessions are fairly standard and easily fall within the parameters of the first category above. As you request more elaborate poses, wardrobe and/or makeup changes, or more pictures, we will charge the appropriate session fee based upon the table above. We will inquire during the initial consultation to get a good estimation of what type of session you will require and then establish the session fee for you at that time.
Session fees are due at the completion of your initial consultation to book your session.
In the event you cannot make it to your session, please notify us, if possible, within 24 hours of your session appointment. We allow a one-time rescheduling of your session.
Location and Travel Fees
Our session fees for location shoots are the same as for studio shoots. The only exception to this is if there is extensive travel involved (more than 20 miles) or if we are forced to pay a fee (parking, for example) in order to photograph at your selected location. In such cases we will ask you to pay a mileage fee (40 cents per mile) and to reimburse us for any actual expenses we incur. If your travel requirements are more extensive (plan travel or overnight stays), then we will negotiate these expenses with you prior to the portrait session.
Prints can be purchased in a , as , or as . The portrait packages are the most economical way to purchase quality portrait prints (the packages contain built-in discounts for the larger order), but there are times when buying individual prints could save you money. Custom prints are the most costly, but they result in large and elegant display pieces that can brighten any wall or act as a conversation piece for family and friends.
