2019 Standard Session Pricing

February 19, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Welcome to 2019!

With hopefully our coldest month about to end, I'd like to take a moment and both introduce and explain my 2019 pricing for my standard sessions. 2018 was a year of growth and continued learning. I continued to hone my skills behind the camera and at the "office". My many thanks to all of the people I encountered and was allowed to produce great work with. Also, for those that accepted an extended time schedule due to my own wedding, THANK YOU! 

So, what do you get when you book a session with me? Well, to put it very bluntly, a great deal of time and effort. Once a location is given I start researching ideas to have a general game plan of what I'd like to accomplish. I will often ask at least a handful of questions in regards to personal preferences to get an idea of what outfits, ideas, and style you are bringing to the shoot. From there we set a date, around the weather if possible and conduct the shoot.

During the shoot I take TONS of photos. My goal is to capture as much as I can so I can give plenty of options. So, if you have purchased just an hour, I offer 15 final photos as part of the package. I spend anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes or more on each finalized photo. My subject edits include the removal of skin blemishes, whitening of teeth, removing frizzy hair, and removing redeye. My overall editing can include removing background objects (think of people walking behind you in the distance, cars, etc) to altering the background completely) I do this because of a multitude of reasons. Mostly, those reasons center around making the background support the subject creatively. Take for instance if the skies are overcast and it is the only time the shoot can be scheduled....I will either change up the existing sky to bring some vibrance to the photo, or I will plug in a different sky photo taken from the same location. 

As a special note I will add that for the foreseeable future I only offer a realistic style of photography. Certain types of composites (taking a photo of someone and placing them in a fantasy type of setting) are just not feasible without specific space, equipment, and software. Now, with that being said, I can do some amazing things behind the camera and create some spectacular photos. A fine example would be the Christmas maternity photo in this post. With the use of my equipment and some cardboard to focus the light I was able to create what I feel to be a very special photo. 

I hope that this brief explanation helps you understand what you are getting when you book a session. Most of the work you are paying for happens before and after the actual photo shoot. I look forward to creating those images for YOU if you give me the opportunity.
