Family Films and Photos Pricing

All of the sessions I offer capture the story of your life from the phase you are in - full of emotion and real moments. The biggest decision is session length and whether you’re interested in photos or film or both! If we haven’t already, let’s get on the phone and discuss what feels right for your family so I can help you make that decision.

  • Session Fee: $250. This is required at time of booking and is separate from the collection; the same fee applies regardless of session length. This fee covers communications, booking the date, preparation, and session hours.

  • Collection: Photos or Film or Both. Photos from the session include fully edited high resolution images; there will be a minimum of 25 photos per hour of coverage in the gallery you receive. The family film created from a session will be 3-8 minutes in length (the longer the session, the longer the film). See details below. Payment is due on the day before the session.

  • Add-Ons: Wall Art and Albums.There is no obligation to purchase anything additional or decide in advance. All of my collections already include a full gallery of digital photos or a feature-length family film. For many people that is enough or they choose to do their own printing.
