PORTRAIT SESSION  – $200

Lifestyle/Lifestyle Newborns, Family, Engagement, Maternity, Boudoir, and H.S. Seniors.

Includes:

  • Pre-session chat about your session
  • 1 hour session
  • Edited images presented in an online gallery. (This gallery is just a viewing gallery. All prints and files are sold separately.)

The Portrait Commission covers sessions with up to 5 people.  Please add $15 for each additional person.  The session fee covers the time and talent of the photographer only.  It does not cover the cost of prints, products, or digital files.

TRAVEL FEES 

I have set travel fees for some popular portrait session locations. This covers the extra travel time it takes to get there as well as other expenses I incur when traveling for these types of sessions.

  • $125 – White Sands, NM
  • $200 – Marfa, TX
  • $250 – Ruidoso, NM

SMALL FAMILY EVENTS

I often get asked about small family events such as birthday parties, baby showers, and other celebrations. If the date is available, the rate is $250/hour plus tax. There is a two hour minimum for these types of events. The digital files are included with event coverage.

CHILDHOOD MINI-SESSIONS – $100

Includes: 

  • One 20 minute session.
  • Edited images presented in an online gallery. (This gallery is just a viewing gallery. All prints and files are sold separately.)

These sessions are fun, themed sessions that are strictly for children only. The ONLY exception are the Christmas mini-sessions that I offer in November. Childhood Mini-Sessions take place on certain days of the year. See the blog for details:)

Once you’ve booked your date, we can chat all about what you’d like to do. I’ll provide some helpful links with “what to wear” ideas as well as other things. If you are booking a mini-session, I’ll provide the information on the shoot and give you a specific time slot.

What’s more important than anything is remembering that my portrait sessions are about feeling relaxed and having fun. Don’t stress too much about it. The more relaxed you are about it all, the better the session will be.

After the session, your proofs will be presented to you in an online gallery within 2-3 weeks. From there you can choose to order whatever you’d like.

While there is no minimum order, most clients will choose one of my packages as they are structured in a way that saves you money.

These packages range from $150-$600.

Your gallery will remain online for 3 weeks after it is published. Once the gallery is offline, I do not keep the images on file. Orders must be placed within the 3 week timeframe. I do offer a $20 credit code on all orders placed within 5 days from publishing date:)

So you have an idea of how the pricing structure works, the petite package includes:

  • 5 high resolution digital files
  • 3 5×7 prints
  • 2 8×10 prints

Packages are structured so the more you buy, the more you save. Every package includes some prints. They are a gift from me to you because I love prints and I want all my clients to take some prints from my professional lab home with them. PRINTS are what it’s all about.

Every image purchased gets extra love and attention in the editing room.

AVAILABILITY

I will typically book 2-3 weeks in advance and because I am often shooting weddings and events, my weekend spots get booked up quite quickly. So, if you’re thinking of having a portrait session, it’s best to get on the calendar as soon as possible.

Once September hits, it’s time to start thinking about getting the portrait calendar. I know that sounds crazy, but trust me, you’ll be happy you decided to book in advance. I do offer two days of holiday mini sessions in the month of November. After November 30th I am no longer taking on work that will be ready in time for Christmas.

Every year, there are so many inquiries for holiday portraits in December but by December it’s too late to book a portrait session, so get on the calendar as soon as you can. 

I do offer a day of Christmas family mini-sessions which normally take place early in November. Be on the lookout for that announcement if you’d like to book some Christmas mini-sessions this year.

HOW TO BOOK

The $200 sitting fee is required in advance to get on the calendar.

Once paid, this fee is non-refundable. However, should you need to reschedule, I am happy to do so within three months from the time you booked. In the case of very bad weather, we can chat about rescheduling. For mini-sessions, I will make the call and give everyone a reshoot day.
