2010 Session Prices and Information

Session Fees
*PLEASE NOTE - Session fees are good for sessions completed during 2010 only. Please contact me for a quote for 2011 sessions*

Session fees are due at the time of your session (except as outlined below for packages).

Your session fee includes the photographer’s time, talent, travel, digital enhancement of images, online gallery, and a cd of your full resolution, digitally enhanced photos (with full artist release for printing - photographer retains rights to the images).

(an additional fee of $20 will apply for travelling more than 30 miles)

If the session fee seems high compared to other photographers’ sitting fees, keep in mind that your session does include a cd of your full resolution images with permission to print, the value of which runs anywhere from $50 to several hundred dollars from other photographers.

See below for more information about your session

Standard Session - $150

1-2 hour on-location session for up to 5 subjects – perfect for kids, families, seniors, maternity, couples, etc. Add $10 for each additional subject.

Newborn Session - $125

Approximately 2 hour on-location session with the newborn (less than one month) and immediate family members (parents, siblings). The newborn session may take longer than the average session due to the unpredictable nature of new babies; extra time is allotted for feeding, changing, etc.

Baby Standard Session - $100

Approximately 1 hour on-location for a single "baby" between 1 and 12 months of age. This session is perfect for documenting the various milestones of baby's first year. (For more than one child or family member, Standard Session pricing will apply).

Includes a Standard Session for maternity photos and a Newborn Session as described above. Fee is due at the time of the first session. ($50 savings if you book the Maternity-Newborn Package over a Standard Session for maternity photos and a Newborn Session).

Baby’s First Year Package - $300

Includes four Baby Standard Sessions as described above (excluding Newborn). Recommended ages are 3, 6, 9, and 12 months. 50% deposit due at the time of the first session. Remainder of the fee is due by the time of the 3rd session. ($100 savings if you book the Baby's First Year Package over four Baby Standard Sessions).

**All prices are subject to change**

Session Info

Your session includes:

1-2 hours of the photographer’s time for a Standard Session, 30 minutes for a Mini Session, at an outdoor location of your choice in the Denver metro area (indoor locations with ample natural lighting, such as a well-lit living room, are recommended for newborns and babies).

An unlimited number of pictures, poses and people combinations in the allotted time (outfit changes too, if you want!).

Digital enhancement of "best" images after your session: 25-30 images for a full session.

**While the photographer takes a considerably large number of photos during your session, only the best images are saved and enhanced – duplicate photos, blinks, funny faces, repeat poses, blurry and otherwise imperfect photos are not saved**

A cd of your digitally enhanced photos after the session (allow 1-2 weeks for images to be completed) both in color and black & white. While the photographer retains full rights to the images themselves, the cd includes is a full print release to print your images from a photo lab of your choice. (The photographer does offer prints, but there is no purchase requirement).

A consultation before the session (by phone or e-mail, whatever works best) to discuss those "must have" shots for your session, as well as possible post-processing preferences (black and white, sepia, color, etc).

A satisfaction guarantee! As an on-location photographer, I realize that Mother Nature does not always cooperate! As a mother, I realize that kids don't always cooperate! If the circumstances aren't right on the day of your session, I offer a rescheduled session at no additional charge, or a full refund if rescheduling is not possible. However, if you choose a refund after a session has been completed, I will retain the images from your session.

Printing options: I do work with a professional printing lab and can offer professional lab prints in standard sizes, as well as many other print options like gallery canvas wraps, photo gifts, etc. Please inquire for print pricing information.

Design options: I also offer custom designed photo Christmas cards, invitations, announcements, etc. Please inquire for design pricing information.

The Snyder-Martin Family

My brother and sister-in-law had family visiting over the holidays, and wanted to get some pictures of the whole group before everyone left town. They asked me to come help out with getting the pictures and I was happy to oblige! It was a cold, snow-crusted days so we made do in their living room. So here's my brother with his lovely in-laws, the Snyder's!

Four generations...
Love this one of Sarah and Noah!
