Hi, Amanda here.

I know custom photography isn't cheap, but consider this: Photos of your children and family will only increase in value; it's an investment that is guaranteed to grow over time.  How valuable are your old family photos?  How valuable will these photos be to your children someday?   

 

2 Hour Session - Minimum Investment is $500

​4 Hour Session - Minimum Investment is $850

 

Upon booking, a 50% retainer fee is due.  ($250 for 2 Hour Sessions or $425 for 4 Hour Sessions.) The remaining minimum balance is due at least 24 hours prior to your session start time, after we've confirmed all of the details and all legal forms have been reviewed and approved. You will receive invoices via email and may pay by credit card or paypal.  


You may choose how you would like to allocate your investment, using the pricing guide below.  

Sessions

$250 - 2 Hour Session - Photographer's time+talent for two hours at a location of your choosing.

                                       Preview Gallery will contain 20 fully retouched images.    

                                       (Only includes session booking, preparation, shooting time, and editing.  No digital files or products are included.)

 

$400 - 4 Hour Session - Photographer's time+talent for four hours at up to two locations of your    

                                       choosing.  

                                       Preview Gallery will contain 40 fully retouched images.  

​                                       (Only includes session booking, preparation, shooting time, and editing. No digital files or products are included.)

 

After your session, I will choose my top photographs to edit (20 or 40.)  I carefully hand-edit each image, which takes anywhere from 45 minutes to a couple hours for a complex photograph.  I typically only edit 1-3 images per day, because I want my eyes to be fresh in order to provide you the best possible result.  I also will take one last hard-look at the entire gallery before I present it, and will typically work a couple more hours to perfect anything I didn't notice the first time around.  Your gallery will include ONLY my top 20 or 40 edited images.

Pricing FAQs

Q:  What goes into the pricing for your photography services?

​A:   That's a great question!  Many people not familiar with modern photography techniques might be under the impression that all a photographer does is click a button, upload the pictures, maybe add some filters, then upload them for a client.  All of that wouldn't really take too much time (or possibly any skill, right?) I admit that in my early days, I used pre-set filters (called actions or literally, presets) and did not know much else.  In the 5 years I've spent as a professional photographer, I've taken hundreds of hours of coursework to improve my shooting and editing techniques.  I edit in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.  One single photo takes me anywhere from 45 - 90 minutes to edit.  I have tried to "batch" edit to make it go more quickly, but the reason my pictures look the way they do is because of my intricate, hand-editing process.  I refuse to sacrifice what could be an amazing picture with a little time, for just a good picture.  I take a painstaking approach to each and every picture I work on; I even open each picture again at least a week later to carefully inspect anything I may have missed before delivering a client gallery.

(While I haven't updated this blog in a bit, here's a string of Before/Afters where you can see the difference good editing can make in a photograph.  I hope to update this soon, as I believe I've improved even more from when I was better about posting these!) 

In addition to preparing for our session, spending at least two hours with your family, culling through hundreds of shots to narrow down to my best (this takes several hours), and editing each picture to perfection - this takes a tremendous amount of time.  Now - it's time I enjoy every second of - I love nothing more than shooting and editing pictures, it's my favorite thing!  But as a wife, mom, and business owner (among other hats I wear) I cannot spend 30 hours on your session and only offer to do that for $200.  

In addition, I've spent countless hours (and dollars) on continuing education and improving my skills.  I hope that this time and effort reflects in the quality of my photographs.  

Q:  Do you have any special certifications or credentials?

​A:  I am a published and award-winning photographer.  In 2016, four of my photographs were selected to be displayed in the Suwanee City Hall as Snap Suwanee winners.  

I am an official City of Duluth events photographer.  

​My work has been used in many print publications and magazines, including all marketing material for the City of Suwanee.  

I've been featured several dozens of times on popular children's photography hubs.  

Q:  Do you offer mini-sessions?

A:  No, I'm sorry.  While I have offered mini-sessions in the past, I found that they just don't fit with my personal style, which is to learn and observe the relationships and connections between family members, and the personalities of children, so that I can anticipate and capture authentic moments.  I simply cannot do that in 20 minutes.  I also found that because I spend so much time editing my photos after the session, I cannot offer an affordable option for a mini-session.  My style is best suited for a small number of clients for whom I spend valuable time giving an exceptional service, rather than dozens of clients that I churn as quickly as possible.  

Q: Do you offer discounts or specials? 

A:  I do offer maternity sessions at a 50% discount when a newborn session is booked.  I have donated several sessions to charity auctions over the years and plan to continue to support the community in that manner.  I have also given sessions to families with extraordinary circumstances when I've felt led to do that.  I will be honest that my very, very favorite session to shoot is a Fresh 48 Newborn session, in the hospital.  During off-season times, I am willing to work with families requesting this type of session, because I honestly just enjoy them so much, I can't help it.  

Q:  Can you refer me to other local photographers if you're booked or out of my price range?

A:  Yes!!  And I would love to!  I have amazing photographer friends all around Gwinnett County and the City of Atlanta, as well as many around the country.  (When I have time, I do intend to list a directory here on my site of other local photographers I recommend.  There is a lot of talent in this area, and I'd be happy to refer you to one of my talented friends.)
