Our product pricing structure encourages clients to invest in printed art, as it is what's valued as the end result of your session, and the reason you would commission us.
It's critical to remember that digital files are not a permanent way to archive your memories, as they are fragile and may not last, and hectic lives usually prevent people from printing their images from their digital images.
So while we do offer digital images, we will also print your art pieces. After all, why invest in professional portraiture if your images will sit indefinitely on a USB drive in a drawer? Print. It's worth it.
Booking a Session
The session fee covers the time and talent of the photographer at the session and a private viewing/ordering appointment.
Please note that at this time, we do not offer in-studio sessions.
It does not include any prints or digital products, but it does include a $100 product credit at your ordering appointment.
We book our sessions on weekends only; for most sessions, we recommend starting first thing in the morning (around 8:30 a.m.) or later in the day, near sunset (around 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. depending on the season). These times of day give us the best natural light and are slightly cooler for our four-legged friends.
To reserve your date, a $100 deposit is due at the time of booking. The deposit is applied to your session fee and is non-refundable. We also require a signed contract and model release before your session. The remaining balance of your session fee is due on the date of your session. We’re happy to reschedule your session in the event of inclement weather or illness, but we ask that you give us as much notice as possible.
Our average client invests between $500 - $2500 in finished products.
Our selection includes custom books and albums as well as solitaire wall portrait products, including fine art framed pieces hand made in Italy, premium gallery wrapped canvas, and contemporary metal artwork for a sleek, modern look.
You'll also love our wall portrait sets and table top products!
For every print or canvas purchased, we will include a complimentary web-resolution version of the image purchased.
Note: You may see leashes in your proofs; we will remove leashes from any images you plan to purchase, except in extreme circumstances in which the image quality would be diminished by doing so.
Rates are subject to change at any time without notice. Virginia sales tax is applied to all purchases and sessions.
