Portrait sessions begin at $150 and include a complimentary portrait consultation either in person or by phone prior to your session, the time and talent of your photographer to capture just the perfect images, travel to and from location of your choice within a 25 mile radius of photographer's home base in Cordova, TN, experienced editing to enhance the beauty of your images, 15 – 25 completely edited images, and a private online password protected proofing gallery for you to view your images, make your print selections, and share with family and friends via social media (email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.).
A $50 non-refundable retainer fee is required at the time of booking to secure a date and time for your session. This fee is applied to your portrait session fee with the balance due on or before the day of your session.
**A minimum print order of $150 is required in addition to session fee.
Typically, I allow up to two hours for your portrait session (longer for newborns). One thing you will find is that I do not believe in rushing my clients or sessions and do not book them too close together. I am less concerned with time and more concerned with getting those photos needed to give you the beautiful images you deserve. As my client, I want you to feel appreciated and comfortable with your session.
We do not offer ONLY digital files because we want your images to reflect their true beauty as only images printed by a professional printing service that is calibrated to our standards can offer. You may, however, purchase a customized CD or USB drive of your final images for $195 with the purchase of one of our print packages.
All clients are asked to sign a model release form. This is what allows me to post your sneak peeks on Facebook or share them with you in other formats. It also allows me to use a few of your awesome images on my website or to help promote my business on Facebook or in other social media formats.
Once editing has begun, I will give you a sneak peek of 2 – 3 images on Facebook or via email. You are more than welcome to tag yourself, family and friends. But please do not crop out my logo.
Your final gallery will be ready in approximately 2 – 3 weeks and will be shared with you in a private password protected online gallery. You will have a few days to review your gallery, share it with family and friends and start thinking about which images you would like to order. We will then schedule a time to review your gallery together (either at my studio or over the phone if you prefer), discuss your needs regarding which poses you want, what sizes you may want for yourself as well as gifts for family and friends. We can discuss wall groupings, gallery wraps, fine art prints, books, and other products that you may be interested in.
