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.
Take your dating profile to the next level with some professional (but casual) photos. The scope is a bit different than my other sessions. We can shoot for up to an hour, at a couple/few different locations, and I’ll deliver at least 15 varied, lightly retouched photos. You don’t want your photos to look like you paid for them, so I’ll use a very light touch when editing. I’ll pretend I’m just that friend you hang out with that has an interest in photography. You’ll see results fast! These are $250 plus tax.
Most NEWBORN photography 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. Full newborn sessions average around 2-3 hours of shooting time and include family photos, sibling photos (if applicable), and about 3 different solo-baby “looks” or setups. Full sessions are $800 plus tax and include at least 40-60 fully edited images. For clients with budgetary constraints, junior newborn sessions may be a good fit. Junior newborn sessions are limited to about an hour and include family photos plus one simple setup or “look” for the baby. Junior newborn sessions are $500 plus tax and include around 30 fully edited photos. Clients who book a full newborn session are entitled to a half-price mini or junior maternity session.
My baby's first year package is more intuitive now. After photographing so many babies, I’ve decided you get the most bang for your baby photography buck at different STAGES rather than AGES. 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).
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.
