THE

EXPERIENCE

Full-Service Photography:
The Breakdown

You should be proud to show your portraits off! Whether on your walls, in an album, or prints as gifts, you will be proud to display your images. As your photographer, I'll work with you to create gorgeous pictures that you'll cherish forever. Whether you have a location in mind or pick my brain about anything before booking a session, I'm more than happy to chat with you about your wants and needs when it comes to your portraits. Being a full-service portrait photographer, I want to accommodate you in any way possible to assure that your needs are accounted for.

Photographers in Austin Tx Family Portraits on a Couch

Pre-Session Consultation

The first step is getting to know one another. On our pre-session consultation call, We’ll discuss your vision for your photos, what goals you have, locations for the shoot, and where you might want to display these photos in your home.

 

We can meet over Zoom or in your home to preview some framed samples of similar sessions to yours. The bottom line? I want you to feel completely comfortable and confident in your decision to hire me as your portrait photographer.

 

Once you’re ready to book a session, a $690 retainer is due to reserve your spot on my calendar (includes a $500 print credit). After viewing your images, you'll only purchase the photos you love. Prints start at $250 and packages start at $1490. Clients typically invest anywhere from $2500-$6000.

Wardrobe help, Hair & Makeup

All sessions include hair, makeup, and wardrobe selection assistance.

Not sure how to dress the family to ensure the best portraits? I’m happy to help!

Tips:

  1. 1. Avoid patterns — they might detract from your beautiful, glowing faces.
  2. Think Textures: Consider clothing with lace, ruffles, sequins, and everyone's favorite—LAYERS! Scarfs, jackets, even hats (BUT consider shadows when picking hats.)
  3. Accessorize: Statement jewelry can really add the right 'pop' to your pictures. Varieties of necklaces (pearls, chains), stacks of bracelets, watches, or bold earrings are all A+++.
  4. Mani/Pedi Check: Are you rocking polish that's seen better days and is chipped? Portraits are very focused and sharp shots, and chipped polish will stand out very visibly in final shots. Be mindful of the state of your nails!

portrait session

Now that we’ve laid the foundation for incredible photos, it’s time to take them! Expect your session to last anywhere from 60-90 minutes. I’ll do what it takes to make your experience completely relaxed, comfortable, and fun for you or the entire family. Be sure to tell your kiddos how much fun the session will be. I can’t wait to capture their smiles and laughter! Remember, a happy family creates the best images.

in-person order session

The anticipation is nearly through. It’s time to see the images we captured during your portrait session. We'll meet together in person OR over Zoom, 1-2 weeks after your portrait session, to go through the best photos from your set. You’ll also get a chance to see the heirloom albums, canvas, and frame samples to select the best products for you or your family. Take your time making a decision, I want you to choose the best pieces for your home. Payment is due for all products during this session. Prints start at $250 and most clients invest $2500-$6000.

YOUR QUESTIONS

what does being a full-service photographer mean?

Being full-service means that my job isn't done if I simply provide you a gallery link or send you home with a disk full of photos you'll likely never use or only post on social media. You're busy and your time is valuable. That's why I offer a fully customized experience. I'll sit with you and help you choose the perfect wall art, album design or photos to fit your home. I want your experience to end with professional quality heirloom art for your home. Art that you'll be proud to pass down to future generations.

That sounds great! But, we are busy. What if we're running late for our session?

I will schedule the session to allow plenty of time, even if you are running a little late. However, I ask that you let me know, and provide me an ETA so I can ensure we get the photos you want. If you are running WAY behind, I can't guarantee we'll get everything, so being on time is the best.

Do you have a cancellation fee if we can't make our scheduled date?

The session retainer ($690) is non-refundable. However, we can move your photo session to another available date.
