Welcome to my rates page!
This may seem like a long ramble but it’s all for good reason. I want to give you the best idea of what to expect when you choose me as your photographer. I’ve created an informative blog post that gives you more in depth information here but I’ll summarize as well as answer a few quick questions while you’re scrolling down this page.
I am an experience-based also known as a full service photographer which means I don’t take photos and simply hand you a disk or a link at the end. Even though I may include a digital offer with a product collection from time to time, digital images are not the basis of my business. Photos are best when you are surrounded by them and the memories they bring back. I help you get them printed so that you can hang them up, put them in an album or book and enjoy them for years to come. So let me make this an experience for you along the way. I can also design a custom magazine for you (I am graphic designer too by the way) or create a video of your full shoot. Full service means that I get to offer you the best in terms of your photo shoot and products. So take advantage!

The prices for my services will depend on a few variables –
What type of service are you looking for? Travel shoot? Lifestyle shoot? Documentary shoot?
(If you’re looking for commercial work or prints, this section will be a big help in answering your questions.)
Pricing starts at $315 for a Lifestyle Photo Shoot and $415 for Documentary Sessions. Products and collections are not included in those fees and fees are subject to change at any time.
Please note: I cannot give you a specific price without first speaking to you! I know, I know but it’s very hard for me to give you any set price without knowing your exact needs and how I can help you. Without filling in the gaps, I can’t say “let’s change this around and lower your price” or “let’s add this and shift this, then you get this.” My job is to help you showcase your story in the best way but I can’t get started without hearing it first!
I encourage you to check out the blog post that gives you a clue on the client experience in it’s entirety. It outlines a little bit of what’s included with your shoot fee. You can read that here. Once we meet for a consultation, you’ll have even more information on what I like to include for my clients. It’s all about the experience here and I want to make sure you enjoy yours with me.
Mini-sessions are no longer a part of my regular services but I do intend to have them as events throughout the year. If you’re interested in a mini-session, please check my specials page here for more information.
What type of product are you looking for?
A canvas to hang on your wall? A coffee table book? A beautiful family album? These products are all available but all for different prices in addition to your shoot price. When you become a client, you’ll have access to my product guide which will also be available here in the client lounge where you can compare prices and find what might suit you best. Not to mention I’ll be sure to have a few samples for you to take a look at in person.
What is your timeline?
If you’re looking to have a photo shoot within a week, there is a rush fee if that date is available. There is also a fee for rushed editing and/or product purchases.
Are you local or is travel involved?
I love to travel, love it, but I’ll be honest. Travel fees do apply if travel is involved. This is generally limited to longer distances outside of town but it’s always a good idea to have this in mind.
*Rates do not include taxes or fees. Payment plans are available on session fees over $300. Plans do not apply to products.
