CREATIVE SESSION

All session fees include my photography time/talent, post-processing of images, travel up to 30 miles roundtrip, and a password-protected gallery that will be available for 2 weeks. All products, including digital files, are separate. Most galleries will contain 60-70 oomphed (fully edited) images that will be available for viewing about 1 week after your session.

$350 for Lifestyle Photography
Lifestyle Photography can focus on an individual, siblings, a family or a couple. A typical session takes 1 to 1.5 hours. Family sessions can include up to 5 subjects (immediate family members only, including the furry ones). If you want to learn more about true Lifestyle Photography, check out my article.

$350 for Styled Photography
Styled Photography sessions begin with a vision. Your vision can stem from a prop, a theme or an outfit, and the entire session is wrapped around that. Examples of styled shoots:  Bridal, Day After, Seniors and Fashion. If you want a Styled session for a family, you would have a themed set-up that integrates an activity, which will bring everyone together, yet allow for natural expressions. This behind-the-scenes post may give you more insight.

$400 for Newborn Photography
A Newborn Photography session typically lasts 2 to 2.5 hours to accommodate set-up time and the occasional need to feed, soothe, change diapers or ooh-and-aah at the baby. (There’s no getting around that last part!) These sessions are held in your home, so you and your baby are warm, safe and comfortable at all times.

[Please Note:  To book a session during my busy season, I require pre-ordering of the digital files. This is because 99% of my clients order digital files and pre-ordering one will ensure that you get your images sooner.]

Clients usually invest between $1700 to $4000 per session.

For Commercial Photography, rates vary depending on the project. All commercial work includes image processing and unlimited usage of fully-edited images. Contact me for a quote.

Limited Wedding and other Event Photography are available for 2014 and 2015. Packages start at $4000.

Product Pricing

The quality of a photograph depends on the image captured as well as how the image is printed. I learned quickly that not all photo labs are created equal! The professional lab I use for prints is phenomenal, as are the other companies I work with for my other products.

Photos are printed on Kodak Professional E-Surface Paper. This lustre paper produces excellent skin tones. The standard archival value is 100 years in home display and 200 years in dark storage.

You can also upgrade to modern Metallic paper. It uses a patented combination of film and laminate layers that produce striking, three-dimensional, lasting images. The pearlescent surface provides gorgeous color saturation and makes the paper resistant to tearing and curling. For Metallic Paper, it is an additional $5 for 4×6 and 5×7, $10 for 8×10 and 11×14, $25 for 16×20 or larger.

Wall prints 16×20 and larger will be mounted on a sturdy board for extra protection against creases.
