My current fees are listed here.  There is nothing hidden or extra; what you read quoted here--except for print ordering--is what you will receive, and what you will pay.  Period.


Portrait Session
  • $45 session fee (up to one hour; session up to two hours is $90)
  • my location or yours (within reasonable driving distance)
  • change of clothing (if you wish; it is your time)
  • choose from 10-30 digital images for development

Event Session (non-wedding)
  • $100 per hour flat rate
  • birthdays, graduations, rehearsal dinners, any special event in your life
  • choose from 15-30 images per hour (i.e., a three-hour event will yield at least 45-90 images) for development
  • CD containing printable images is $100 (print authorization form included)

NOTE:  Time is strictly adhered to; if your session lasts 1 hr. 5 min., I charge for two hours.

Prints & Digital Images

I would be happy to send you a price sheet for prints; just contact me.  When you choose an image to be developed, you receive:

  • high quality development from a professional photo lab
  • superior quality photo paper
  • full resolution image quality
  • linen textured professional finish
  • each print is personally inspected
  • prints are shipped to you at no cost

Because I personally oversee the development of all my photos, I do not normally offer CDs with digital images.  You do have the option of purchasing a CD of your images for $50.  The images are non-printable and copyrighted, and may be used in all electronic venues (computer, cell phone, Facebook, Flickr, etc.).

The Photo Session Process

  • I provide fees and pricing first
  • We have the photo session!
  • The non-refundable session fee is due at the time of the photo session
  • I email you the link to your online proofs (5-7 business days)
  • If you desire any changes (e.g., change a color photo to black-and-white or vice versa, etc.), fee is $5 per adjustment
  • From your proofs, create a custom print package--you choose images, sizes, and quantities
  • Place your order ($10 minimum)
  • Pay by check or through PayPal
  • Order is submitted to lab upon receipt of order form and payment
  • Unless we make other arrangements, prints are shipped to you via First-Class Mail
