For the cost of a nice dinner out, a new outfit, or a fancy handbag, you can have TIME captured, and provide generations with the image of what was once your life. Photographs last far more than a lifetime. Your children will hold on to your treasured photos, and eventually pass them on to your grandchildren. How much do you value an album that can be handed down from generation to generation, or a wall portrait that will make you smile every single day?
The Value of a Photograph
I took this photo of my mother-in-law with her grandchildren (my children), just 3 weeks before she passed away. It was the last photo I ever took of her. It sits in a large frame in our home, and is readily admired by family and visitors. When my children grow older, I'm certain this photo will be shared when they tell stories of their grandmother.
There's more to it
There are many components to photography, such as setting up backdrops and props, scouting perfect outdoor locations, investing in top-notch equipment, writing shot lists, etc. And the work doesn't end once a session is over. Hours are spent selecting and editing your images using expensive programs to make ordinary into extraordinary. The results are often works of art that I'm proud to call mine, and yours! I want you to treasure each and every photo I give you. The time and money I invest in my work is reflected in my fees. When clients invest in me, you know that I will invest all of me in your final product.
The way I do things
I charge a session fee at time of booking. This initial payment reserves your time slot with me, and is non-refundable. If you need to cancel your session for any reason, please do so within 48 hours of your session time, otherwise you initial payment is lost. If you cancel in a timely manner, we will reschedule for another mutually agreed upon date. I will contact you after booking with a booking confirmation and send you any pertinent information.
After our wonderful photo session
I will edit your photos (takes 1-3 weeks), and email you a link to your private online gallery, where you will see all of your chosen edited photos. You will then decide which Digital/Print Package you would like to purchase, and I will help you order your items properly. Your chosen digitals will be ready for you to download from your gallery, and photo prints or any additional items will be mailed within 1-2 weeks of purchase.
Please contact me if you would like to see Digital / Print my price list.
