What’s Included in This Investment:

  • Digitals:  Price includes final edited digital images (high-resolution), along with printing rights.  You will be emailed a link where you can download the full-size images directly to your computer at NO additional cost.  If you do not own a computer or do not want to download the images yourself, or you may choose to have a CD or USB mailed to your home for a small additional fee.
  • Professional Prints:  Price includes 2 professional prints:  (1) 5×7 and (1) 8×10.  You will be able to choose which of your final edited images you use to fulfill this order.  These prints will be mailed to you directly from my professional printing lab.
  • These full-length family sessions are scheduled individually on separate days than my “mini sessions”.  30-min sessions typically yield between 20+ final edited images.  1-hour sessions typically yield between 40+ final edited images.  Final edited images are chosen by the photographer.  Raw/unedited images will not be shown.  The number of final images received depends on several factors, including but not limited to: number of outfit changes, location changes, number of family members, cooperation of young children, weather, etc.
  • Family sessions take place outdoors, and preferably in the evening closer to sunset, or the early morning, as both times provide better lighting.  I will shoot midday on occasion, however we will be limited on the areas we can use as shooting in full sun is less desirable.
  • Family sessions can occur at the location(s) of your choice, but must be within a 20-minute drive from Olympia.  If you desire a further location please discuss this with me ahead of time and there will be a small additional travel fee added to the overall cost.
  • EXTENDED FAMILY SESSIONS:  Family sessions can include up to 8 people.  There is an additional charge (a flat rate of $50 total) for larger family groups that go above 8 people.  Please discuss this with me ahead of time!
  • $150 is due at booking as a NON-refundable booking fee/retainer.  This booking fee guarantees your desired day/time on my calendar, and it will not be refunded upon client cancellation.  Booking fees/retainers are paid via PayPal (no fee).
  • Remaining balance is due on the day of your session via cash or a check.
  • Images are ready to download approximately 2 weeks after your session, 3 weeks during busy season.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE:  I only schedule a very limited number of individual family sessions throughout the year, so it’s important to contact me right away if you want to guarantee a spot.  If you are unable to guarantee a spot there are several days of “mini sessions” that I hold throughout the year which are also a great opportunity for family photos.  The difference with mini sessions is you have less time (they are 20 minutes long), and mini sessions only take place on the days I choose and at the locations I choose.   **Please see the separate section on “Mini Sessions” for more information.
