Full sessions are 45-90 minutes depending on scope (newborn sessions are longer), either at my studio and surrounding area or entirely at the location of your choice, in the Austin area. Full sessions result in around 50 images and can include 3-4 clothing/background/location changes. The session fee of $800 includes a web download of all 50 or so artistically edited images from your session (flash drive or custom-designed disc available at additional charge [$30 and $60, respectively]).
Junior sessions can take place either at my studio or on-location. They last no more than 30 minutes and can accommodate 2 clothing/background changes. The session fee of $500 includes web download of all 20-30 finished images from your session (flash drive or custom-designed disc available at additional charge).
Mini-sessions are super-short 15-minute sessions, which either take place at my studio or at a predetermined location where I intend to shoot several mini-sessions back-to-back. Minis are specifically for repeat clients (because we don't need extra time to get to know each other) and for sessions with a very narrow focus (i.e. a holiday card photo, wildflower minis, a birthday invitation photo). Session fee of $300 includes web download of all 15 or so edited images from your session (flash drive or custom-designed disc available at additional charge).
Please be honest with yourself when choosing the type of session you would like to book. I plan my schedule carefully around each type of session, so it's often not possible to go over the allotted time during your session. If you do book a mini-session or a junior session and request more changes of clothing or background or more shooting time, you should be prepared to pay for an upgrade. NEWBORN sessions should be booked as full sessions as soon as possible after the birth of the baby. Please contact alison during your pregnancy to discuss your due date. SENIOR sessions should also be booked as full sessions.
Clients who book a newborn session (newborns are always full sessions) are entitled to a half-price maternity session (mini, junior, or full).
My baby's first year package is more intuitive now. Because I have so much experience with babies of all ages, I know what *stages* (not ages) make for the best photographic subjects. That's why I've decided to switch from a 4-session package (3, 6, 9, 12 months) to a 3-session package (NEWBORN, SITTING-BUT-NOT-CRAWLING, BIRTHDAY). Package includes a reduced rate for the third session (half-price session of any size).
I HAVE THOUGHTFULLY CRAFTED LITERATURE ABOUT THINGS YOU CAN DO TO PREPARE FOR MATERNITY AND NEWBORN SESSIONS. PLEASE EMAIL OR CALL ME FOR A HARD OR ELECTRONIC COPY.
As of summer 2012, I am no longer photographing weddings. I just can't fit it into my schedule with my portrait business. However, I would be delighted to share with you some of my favorite wedding photographers in and around Austin.
AS ALL CLIENTS will have their full-resolution images on disc, it is not usually necessary to go through me for prints, although your friends and family may want to do so. Your gallery will also be a shopping cart, so that anyone to whom you pass on your password will be able to place their own print orders online, saving you the hassle. Of course, I'd love to help you with your loose print orders even though you have the digitals, to ensure the highest quality.
