FAMILY PHOTO SESSIONS
IT’S TIME WE HAD SOME FAMILY PHOTOS. WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR US?
I am a location photographer. This means I can set up at your home, or even better, a special location that is meaningful to your family such as a farm, cottage, historic site or at the beach! I offer different collections which vary in length of time and price.
FAST FUN SESSION - $300
Fast Fun is a one hour photo session at one location for your immediate family and between of 10-15 beautifully edited and enhanced images*. A password-protected gallery of your images will be sent to you when the images have been enhanced and are ready to be viewed. This session is great for families with young active children and teens. This is a one hour session photographed at one location.
BIG SHOT SESSION - $450
Big Shot is a two hour session at no more than two locations no more than 30 minutes apart, for your immediate. The Big Shot includes 20-30 edited and enhanced images*. A password-protected gallery of your images will be sent to you when the images have been enhanced and are ready to be viewed. This is a great package if you wanted to combine two locations (driving time is included in the time allotment).
THE GANG’S ALL HERE SESSION - $700
The family is all together for once! A perfect time to capture the emotions and moments of a family reunion. This package is a 2 1/2 hour session for groups of 7-10 people. The Gang's All Here session includes 30-40 edited and enhanced images*. A password-protected gallery of your images will be sent to you when the images have been enhanced and are ready to be viewed. For larger groups, there is a $20 per person fee added. Planning, lighting and location are critical with large groups, so book early and let me know the final number of people in attendance no later than three days before the shoot date.
GREAT! HOW DO WE START?
We will have a telephone conversation to discuss details of your session, date and other pertinent details. A non-refundable $113 booking fee is required to hold the date. Our photo session discussion will cover location details, date & time, wardrobe, permits, hair & makeup (hair & makeup is extra if needed) and number of people included in the group photos. The day we shoot your wonderful family, the balance of the session fee is due.
Enhancing images can take up to one week from the day of the photoshoot.
*Enhanced, final jpg images will be presented in a password-protected gallery. Editing refers to the carefully chosen section of images reduced from the main photoshoot. Enhancing refers to fine tuning and colour balancing of individual images in order to bring out textures, highlights & shadow details.
I will always look for obvious issues that distract from an image and will "fix" those digitally at no charge. If any further retouching is required, you must specifically request it. Retouching begins at $80 per hour, with a minimum of 1 hour charged. Retouching is a personal preference and requires discussion before any retouching work begins.
Locations beyond the GTA may be subject to an additional travel fee. The travel fee is determined based on location and return travel time and will be discussed at the time of booking. Additional time beyond the allotted portrait session is billed at $150 per hour. All prices are subject to 13% HST (except for the $113 non-refundable deposit). Method of payment accepted is by e-transfer.
