Is there a session fee?
There is a $100 session fee for our general children and family sessions either in studio or out on location. If you order any of our packages (starting at $245) your session fee is included with your package.
Do I have to pay the $200 deposit to schedule my session?
The $200 deposit is to schedule your session and will be credited back toward your order total. (please see our studio policies) We spend a lot of time with all of our clients to ensure we capture the type of images you’re going to love and want to display. We have only a limited number of sessions available so each session slot is important.
There are two prices for everything, how does that work?
If you choose to purchase any of our packages, your $100 session fee is included in your package cost, so your entire $200 deposit will go toward your order total. For any additional prints and products you may purchase, you’ll order off our “with package” pricing, which is at a discount off our “a la carte” prices. If you do not like any of our package options, that’s ok too. There is a $100 session fee and you’ll order your prints products off the “a la carte” pricing.
