PORTRAIT PACKAGES 2018
Explanation of how our rates work:
Pricing for all of our portrait sessions is based on a custom built package for your needs. Your package is the total of your session fee (you choose based on time and location) plus a required minimum credit purchase that will go towards your order after your proofs are ready to view online. So for example - if your session is $150 plus your prepaid minimum print credit (ie: $300), your package is a total of $450, which is all due at the time of your session. Then a few weeks later when it is time to place your order for prints or digital products, you have a prepaid credit (like a gift card) worth $300 to spend on that order. If you choose prints or digitals which total more than your $300 credit, you'll just owe a balance of the difference when you pickup your order. So if you choose to purchase a print order or the copyright release with flash drive worth $700, for example, you'll have a balance due of $400 in addition to your initial package, when your order is delivered/picked up. All clients decide on a different amount of products needed, so the amount you'll owe for your session really depends on a case by case basis. Below is an outline of the general session packages, or minimum requirements. No additional purchases are required beyond the packages listed below.
Your session fee is based on our time spent during your shoot. The time can fluctuate depending on the age of your child, the number of outfits, and the type of session. If you are a new client and unsure of the amount of time needed for your session, you can see the suggested descriptions in the table below or feel free to inquire with us to find out the amount of time we suggest for you!
