Rates and Booking Information
Portrait & Family Photography
*1 hour Session - at least 5 lightly edited digital images $125
*Mini Session of 1/2 hour - at least 2 lightly edited digital images $75
At present, I do not offer printed images. I deliver digital file copies only. Once you receive your files, you can then have the service of your choice print them.
All of the above packages are for 4 people or less, additional people are $10 per person. If you have a large family, I can price those on a case-by-case basis so it should be affordable for larger group photos. My shoots are usually at my home on my property with nature backgrounds which is why I am willing to do the rates listed above. I am currently acquiring some indoor backgrounds for rainy days as a back-up option.
Special locations will have additional charges. The rates listed are if you come to me at my home in Dalton/Wayne County. The weather may affect scheduling.
All customers will be asked to sign a standard photography contract. I do require the contract before I will photo a session. I will also ask for a basic photo release with the option to decline if you are uncomfortable with that. If you do allow me to use your photos for my portfolio and advertising, for a limited time I will discount your session fee by 20% as a way of saying thank you. Most photographers require a photo release but I feel it is important to give people control in how the photos are used.
If you book a session the photography contract will be emailed to you for review in advance of the session. No fees are required until the day of the session. If you have more than one cancellation, then fees may be required to book the time in the future. Payment methods accepted are Paypal, and cash.
*Wedding Photography rates begin at $1000 for 4 hours of coverage, and 200 lightly edited digital photos will be delivered electronically within 2 weeks of the event. There are travel charges for anything greater than 1 hour from my home. $1250 for 4-6 hours of coverage and approximately 300 photos. $1500 for 8 hours of coverage and 500 lightly edited photos. This is for single shooter coverage. At present, I do not have a second shooter available. Special situations and requests may have additional charges. If you do book a wedding, I will include a free engagement session. Wedding bookings do require a non-refundable $300 fee and a signed contract in order to reserve the day.
*Corporate Headshots $50, 2 lightly edited digital images, up to a 15-minute time slot, 1 person. If you have more than 10 people, needing headshots in a day I will give a discount of 10%. I can come to your office to set up a space to photograph multiple people efficiently during business hours.
Other Images for Sale
*Unwatermarked Bird, Nature, Landscape, or Pet Images, $5 per digital image on my site. If you use the watermarked bird or pet images and give me full photography credit and link to my website, you may use these for free. No one may use any picture, watermarked or not, of people on my site. These are all copyrighted and not available for purchase, except by the client.
A few of my images are now on Etsy, and some have been made into graphics to use for cards and crafts. These images are priced differently than this website. Sometimes they will be cheaper if I am doing sales. If images are purchased from me directly, I do give bulk discounts. Currently, I am using Paypal for invoicing, and Google drive to transfer photos.
