Great family portraits are like kids themselves:
They're not boring, they're not cheap, and they're totally worth it.
(Skip ahead if you just want the dollars and cents...)
A lot of photographers don't put prices on their website. Why? I'm guessing the same reason snooty bistros don't show prices on the menu. "If you have to ask..." right?
I get it. Life with kids is crazy enough without adding a field-trip to the "Land of Forced Smiles", keeping white shirts clean, and having some guy popping a flash in your face every six seconds
Don't sweat it.
Your shoot is going to be three things: Short, Sweet, and Fun. You take care of the stuffy noses, and let me herd the cats.
Wait, did you say NOT cheap?
Think of it this way... have you ever said to the family, "Hey, let's eat somewhere cheap tonight"? Or, maybe thought, "Boy, I could really use a cheap car for the winter!" Probably not, right?
So, why would you leave life-long memories to the lowest bidder?
There is a time to be frugal. Some of my favourite travel shots are from my iPhone. But we're talking about heirlooms here, not snapshots. If you want snapshots, grab a selfie-stick, and get your duck-face on. No judgement, believe me.
But... if you're ready to take it to the next level, you and I are going to create the kind of prints and canvasses that your kids will fight over when they buy their first homes.
A basic family session is $249. Period.
Custom-beautified archival prints start at $29.
Professional albums start at $20/page (minimum 20 pages). These truly rock. You have to see them to believe them; and once you get one, you will never hide it in a bookshelf.
Full resolution digital files are available for $50 each, or $500 for your entire session.
(usually 30-40 images)
