You will know about and agree to any service(s) beforehand.
There are different pricing methods for different types of service which is based on time necessary for a specific outcome.
For instance, dance school photography is accomplished within a very short time frame, one dancer after another. Truth be told, minimal time is spent with each dancer; products offered are simple to produce and, hence, the price-point is low.
Mini-sessions involve more time with each dancer and the products offered are also more involved such as albums and framed collections. Payment for session is due at time of booking. Products are above and beyond session fee.
Art sessions are time intensive before, during and after the session. Think of it as a commissioned work.
The Art Session package fee includes:
- Minimum of 20 unique poses
- Wall art and album; social media images of all poses ordered
- Pre-session consultation to bring forth ideas and client input to ensure a successful session.
- Wall concept ideas – custom created for as many walls as you choose, shown to scale on your own wall.
- Post session image preparation.
- One in-person viewing appointment. Additional viewing appointments are $150 each.
50% of Art Session package fee is due at time of booking.
