If you check out my main website you will see a new (yet still similar) logo and a brand new layout! I am still in the process of updating my business policies and pricing structure for 2010. All these changes will go into affect on January 1st so all new bookings will fall under the new policies and prices. Please note, if you had a session in 2009 but never placed an order from your gallery you have until the end of this month to order prints before the increase in prices goes into effect.

Some changes you should note…

*Session fees will remain mostly the same. I’m going to tack on an extra $50 charge for newborn sessions if I have to pack up and go to your home. Remember session fees include the sales tax. I am also allotting $15 of the session fee to go to pay for location expenses… but if the client wants to have the session at a location that costs more than $15… they are responsible for paying the difference.

*I’m tightening up on the policy about galleries. The galleries will be available for 3 weeks. After your gallery expires you will be sent a bill (a paypal request for payment) for $30  if you want it made available again.

*Minimum orders will be inforced. You should be aware of the minimum order for the type of session you chose to have. If you place an order that is below the minimum you’ll receive and e-mail saying your order cannot be processed until the minimum is reached.

*Brag books of all the images will now sell for $100 each.

*Cards will be custom-designed for you based on your preferences. I will create a design and you will be allowed one revision. Any further changes will incur an additional design fee of $30 to compensate me for my time. Designing cards takes a considerable amount of my time and I try to create the very best design for the pictures you choose. Also PLEASE proofread every word of the card proofs when you view them… I’m a horrible speller!

*All orders over $500 will receive 3 complimentary mini accordions (click here and flip through to see images of these and other products).

*An electronic form must be signed to officially book your session.

*I will be taking a limited amount of sessions so that I don’t get so overwhelmed. Remember, I’m a mother of a 5 and 3-year-old, a registered nurse part time, and I also take on several free-lance graphic design jobs over the course of the year. I’ve got a LOT going on.

Feel free to e-mail me with any questions you may have. If you’d like more insight into the increase in pricing please check out the “why does custom photography cost so much” link at the top.
