Does the artist's portfolio touch your heart?
Does it make you emotional?
Do the images make you think "I want images of my dearest people and myself like that"?
Do your values align the photographer's?
Rather than look at their pricing as "expensive" or "cheap" - is their pricing thoughtful, valuing themselves and their industry, in a way that feels like it has integrity? IF their pricing feels beyond your means but everything else feels right, do you know if they offer any sliding scale, sponsorship, or payment plan options?
Do you want an honest glimpse at what your life looks like and feels in the present?
What do their testimonials and reviews make you feel?
This fee is due at the time of booking to reserve your date, and covers:
My time and talents.
A phone or skype consultation to answers your questions, get to know each other a bit, and plan your session together.
My time before, during, and after the session when I craft and curate your gallery of images.
This is a non-refundable fee, but can be used for a rescheduled session within 6 weeks of our originally scheduled date.
I do not require you to commit to your end product purchase until you have seen (and fallen in love with!) your gallery.
If you would prefer to pay up front for an all inclusive session plus the entire gallery of digital files, you may do so at the time of booking for a discounted price of $1300.
If you look around, you will find a vast spectrum of skill and style and pricing. If this is something you are new to, it can surely be overwhelming. My hope is that you consider a few things and use both your heart and logic when deciding who to entrust your memories with and where to spend your money. Whether it me me or someone else who is a great fit for your family.
Consider these questions:
Gallery of handcrafted high resolution digital files - $950
10 selected image digital files - $750
5 selected digital files - $550
I've curated a really special selection of unique items, and I can't wait to share them with you.
The average investment in my photography services (plus digital files & printed goods) is $1,450.
