SESSIONS, PRICING & PACKAGES
Family Photography sessions start at $250 and range about 1-1 1/2 hours for up to 5 people. For groups 5-9 it's $350 and group 10-15 are $450. For larger groups please email me with details. I am happy to photograph at outdoor location(s) of your choice within 10 miles of Cary, IL - or for travel over 10 miles cover expenses and travel time. During a session I capture both candid and posed shots, with an option for one outfit change.
FOLLOW THE LIGHT:
Lighting is key to capture the best moments. Early morning and late afternoon produce the best options - high afternoon sunlight creates heavy shadows, extreme squinting, and is not ideal during summer or fall. Winter light offers opportunities for diffused light and can often work for mid afternoon times, but I will always check weather and forecast before every shoot.
FILES AND EDITING:
An average session yields approximately 80-100+ images. A typical session is for delivery of about 10 - 15 edited digital files with dupes in black & white dupes. However, most clients inquire as to a release of an entire session. I can do this for an additional $300 fee and with logos/no additional edits. A 50% deposit is required to hold a date and tentative time. The balance is due at time of shoot. A release for printing and online use is provided for all personal images. For corporate or products, etc. work a seperate contract is required. The cost of prints, canvases, standouts, etc., are additional.
IMAGE REVEAL SESSION:
After studying all the images, I edit 10 digital images + an dupes in b&w. We then book a reveal session - in my studio in downtown Cary. We see online previews where I discuss best crops for printing and book layouts, etc. I also show you several editing styles within my repertoire for delivery. I also provide you with a link to review ALL images shot during our session. Printing rights included. Price list will be included with the delivery of your final gallery. A typical package runs approximately $350-$450.
SENIOR or PORTRAIT SESSIONS:
My Senior or Portrait Photography sessions start at $185 and include up to 1 hour of shooting time with 2-3 outfit changes. I'm happy to recommend outdoor location(s), or you can tell me about your choice(s). My studio also offers amazing light and lots of posing options. Hair and makeup stylists are available for $50-$75 each (requires advance booking). An average session yields approximately 60-80+ images. During a session I capture both candid and posed shots, along with offering posing ideas. Within two weeks after the shoot, your images are delivered via a digital link where you select (within 2 weeks) your 10 images for full editing. We then meet for a reveal in the studio for image review and final print orders. To release all images frome the session costs $300 - with logo in midres.
