My rate for a one-hour outdoor session is $300 (+ tax)! There is $50 of that due at booking as a non-refundable retainer fee. Portrait sessions include family, maternity, couples, and bloggers/branding!
The one hour session includes 40-50 digital edited images. Mini sessions include 15-20 digital edited images.
There is no extra fee for the digital images; you receive printing & sharing rights to the images! You can order high-quality photos from the gallery site or download them & print yourself.
You will receive your images within 10-14 days of your session date via an online gallery where you can download the photos or even order prints!
Don't stress! Once you book with me, you'll receive my FREE Style Guide with all the tips and tactics to coordinate and plan your outfits & style your session!
My style is light and clean. I don't do dramatic or "filter" type edits; I just love the natural look, and edit the same way every time for consistency! As for posing, I love blending in the classic "posed" look with a little bit of candid. I am not extreme one way or the other, but rather a well-balanced mix of both! If you're nervous about being awkward in front of the camera, don't worry! It is my job not only to provide beautiful images, but also a positive experience! I will give you direction with posing in a way that looks natural and fun!
Yes, I do! If your session will include more than 6 people, there is an additional fee of $15 for every person after 6. Typically extended family sessions include a couple of the full family together, and the individuals of each family, group photos of just the adults, just the kids, etc as time allows!
For the best lighting, there are two slots during the day that are optimal for photos... sunrise and sunset! Most of my sessions start either right at sunrise OR about an hour before sunset. Any other times than these, the sun is likely to be very harsh and unflattering for photos.
Because I love the natural light that the sun provides, I prefer to stick with outdoor locations! Also, Arizona is so beautiful and I love to take advantage of that! During warmer months, studio sessions are available for an extra fee.
Once we decide on a date & time, I will send you my booking confirmation email which will include:
+ Instructions on how to pay the $50 non-refundable retainer fee (part of the session rate).
+ A link to an electronic Client Info Form & Contract to fill out
+ A link to the FREE Style Guide!
Once the retainer fee is paid and the info form/contract is filled out & signed, your session date is secured! The remaining balance is due the date of your session.
Cancellations: If you cancel your session completely, you will only lose the $50 retainer fee you paid at booking.
Rescheduling: If you reschedule your session within 30 days of your original session date, the retainer fee you paid will be transferred up to one time to your new session date. If your new reschedule date is more than 30 days after your original date, you will be subject to a new $50 retainer fee as well as the remaining session rate.
