CLIENT AGREEMENT OVERVIEW

First of all, THANK YOU SO MUCH for choosing to invest in my photography services, and giving me the opportunity to capture some lifelong memories for you! I’m excited to do this for you, so let’s get started!

You are about have a whole slew of information thrown at you, so please bear with me! This page is a client agreement and contract. I’m sure you would agree that most of the time, it’s best to have a few things written down so that we both know what you’re paying for, who should do what and what happens if stuff goes wrong. There are a few legal terms used here and there, but I did my best to make everything easily comprehensible. I have no desire to trick you into agreeing to something that you might later regret. What I do want is what’s best for the safety of both parties, now and in the future.

There are three parts to this page. The second part is a detailed breakdown of the default session package, as well as additional services you can opt to pay for. The second part is a form a where you’ll provide me with more information about you, your family, and your desires for your session. The final part contains the legal terms and conditions that you need to know before we do business together.

Alrighty then! Are you ready? Get set..

LET'S DO THIS!

SESSION PRICING DETAILS

Default package information

All lifestyle photography sessions start at $350. All newborn/infant photography sessions start at $500. Here is what you can expect for those prices.

Before the session:

I will prepare you for the session by discussing when and where to best do it. If you'd like, I can even help you figure out what to wear! I'll also spend some time getting to know you and your significant other/family (if applicable) so that we won't be complete strangers on the day of our photo shoot. This will be done via the questionnaire in the form below.

During the session:

All lifestyle photography sessions are 1-1.5 hours long. All newborn/infant sessions are 2-2.5 hours long. You are allowed to utilize as many locations and outfit changes for the session as long as time allows (we will discuss this prior to the session). I'll start the session talking to you and getting to know you; I believe it's really important to "break the ice" before a session so that everyone is Comfortable! If you have young kids, we may even play some warm-up games to get started! If you have a newborn/infant, I'll let you fill me in on what your baby's "schedule" looks like that particular day. After that, I'll ease you into the shoot with some easy natural poses. More information about how your specific session might look like can be found in the "About The Sessions" page.

After the session:

You will receive a link to an online gallery, Pixieset, with 50-100* images that has been carefully and artistically culled and edited by myself. Your gallery will contain a mixture of colored and black-and-white images. You will be able to choose and download 15 of your favorite images from your gallery to keep. Once you've downloaded your images, an electronic print release will be emailed to you.

*The range given here is so wide because the total amount of photos that ultimately ends up on one's gallery depends on the type of session booked, the amount of people involved, the ages of the people involved, etc. I always strive to fill your gallery with as much quality photos as I can!

Extra! Extra! (Add-Ons)

Session Flash Drive ($200):

If you love all your photos and are having trouble choosing just 15 favorites, you have the option keeping your entire gallery! When you purchase this option, you will receive your photos on a branded USB flash drive, which will also contain an electronic print release.

Travel Fee:

The default package fee covers travel to any location that is within 20 miles from the zip code 20712. I'm happy to travel to any other location beyond that for $20 per every additional 10 miles.
