When my daughter was born 7 years ago we hired a photographer to do a “baby package” taking pictures of her four different times over her first year. The cost of the initial shoots were very reasonable and his pictures of her were beautiful. Sadly though it was very expensive to purchase prints of the pictures. I would watch with sadness the slide show of beautiful images he took of our daughter knowing that I could only afford to purchase one or two of them. I decided then that if I ever became a professional photographer (which I have) that I would do things differently. There was nothing at all wrong with the way that he charged for his services (and that is how the majority of photographers run their businesses). But as a mom and a part time photographer I knew that I could offer something a little bit different!
Whenever possible I use natural light and I prefer to photograph all of my sessions outdoors. My favorite time of day to do portraits is an hour or two before sunset (though I can be flexible with those times)! I try to make my sessions as relaxed and fun as possible with posed portraits as well as candid shots. There are locations locally that I love to use for my portrait sessions, but I am also open to suggestions and ideas from clients.
The prices in every one of my photography packages is all inclusive including the photo shoot itself, a CD of all the edited high resolution images from the shoot, and full printing rights to the portraits. What this means is that you will get a CD of all of your edited pictures and you can use them in whatever ways you would like…have them printed, framed, use for gifts, cards, share them online,etc…
Because I give you all of the pictures on CD and you have full printing rights you may print the pictures whenever and in whatever quantity you want whenever you would like. It is really important to me that you have all of the portraits that are important to you…they are your memories to keep forever! At this time I do not do any printing, but I will happily recommend professional quality printers that I personally use.
The following are the photography packages that I currently have available:
$150. This package includes a customized photo shoot up to one hour long for families. Portraits may include full family photos, individual portraits of each child, siblings together, individual children with parents, mom and dad together, etc… this package can be customized to be exactly what you want.
Extended Family Package:
$200. This package includes everything in the regular family package with an additional half hour of shooting time. This package is ideal for families with 4 or more children who might desire a little extra time to make sure we get all of the shots (including individuals of all of the children). This package is also ideal for families who might want to include extended family members like grandparents.
$100. This package includes a customized photo shoot between 30-45 minutes for 1-3 children (I would recommend the family package for more than 3 children). Portraits may include siblings together and individual portraits.
High School Seniors:
$200. This package includes a customized photo shoot of at least an hour in length (longer if necessary) for high school seniors. This session allows for multiple outfit changes as well as the possibility of more than one location.
$100. This package includes a customized 30-45 minute photo shoot for engagement portraits.
Please contact me to customize a maternity package. Package length, price, and details are dependent upon the number of participants (just mom, husband too, siblings included, etc…).
I am available to photograph your parties and other special events! Please contact me for details.
$35. This package includes 10-15 minutes of individual portraits for one person.
All of my photography shoots are on location within half an hour of the Bangor area. If you are interested in a location farther away (the beach for example) please contact me for availability and special pricing.
