Photography sessions are by appointment. We ask that you call our studio so that we can discuss your portrait needs and what you want to achieve in your final prints. We will also compare schedules to find the best time to make your appointment. Sessions are prepaid. Please have a credit or debit card ready to reserve your time.
The day of your session, please arrive 15-20 minutes prior to your appointment time. This will allow you time to take a breath and settle in. We will discuss your portrait goals for the session and then we will get started! When your session is over we will schedule a time for you to come back for your viewing and order appointment.
Your previews will be ready to view in 3-5 days. When you arrive for your viewing/order appointment you will be see a video presentation of all of your images. Once the presentation is over an associate will go through your images a few at time to help you narrow down to your very favorites and discuss portrait and design options. This appointment generally lasts 45-90 minutes.
Payment in full is preferred, however half down will get your order processing. We also offer payment plans. Please call our office or ask at your view/order appointment for details.
Orders are generally ready for delivery in 3-4 weeks. Please note that no partial orders will be delivered before payment in full. We will call you to schedule a pick up time when your order is complete.
Session fees start at $50 and are based on the number of people being photographed and, in the case of a location shoot, the distance from the studio. Packages start at $150 and include five prints, any size-8x10, 5x7 or 4x5. Packages include a range of poses and additional poses may be added for $15 per pose. We offer portraits from wallet size (2x3) up to large portrait size (30x40). We also offer collages that are double matted and framed starting in the 160's as well as portrait albums starting in the $300's. During holiday seasons we have many gift options ranging from $25 to $100 as well as Christmas cards for friends and family. Commissioned paintings are also available. Pricing for paintings is based on many factors such as number of subjects, distance of subject and background.
The cost of your portraits will really depend on you and your needs. We have clients who spend $300 and others who spend in the thousands. The best way for us to give you an answer is to meet with you in person or by phone and discuss your portrait needs. This way we can give you a more accurate quote of your investment.
We are a print based studio selling finished products. We believe the power and permanence of a finished portrait far outweighs the simple convenience of the digital image. Because we do understand that our clients want to share their images digitally, we do give a shareable image from any product that has been purchased. While digital images are great for your phone and other devices we believe the beauty of a well designed, printed portrait is our main purpose for our clients. We are constantly being told by our clients that the most valuable item they own is their portraits and how much they enjoy them in their homes.
That being said, we do offer digital images for business clients who need images for web sites and publications.
The studio is open to the public and by appointment Tuesday - Friday and some Saturdays. If you need a Saturday, please call and schedule early.
