When are Photo-Shoots Scheduled?
Photo-shoots are scheduled starting at 7:00pm on weekday evenings or anytime during the weekends unless we are busy with other work.
What is the price of a basic photo session?
The cost of the shoot is a reduced fee of $175.00 (unless otherwise stated) provided we get a signed Model Release, in doing so you are effectively becoming a model. Otherwise the regular fee of $225 applies. We request a non-refundable deposit of $20 to be paid either in cash or credit cards via Paypal prior to the date of the shoot. The deposit is part of the shoot cost. If you don't show up or cancel with less than 24 hours to your shoot the deposit is forfeited.
You will have up to 12 months from the date of payment to schedule your session, after 12 months we will credit what you paid to any of our packages.
This pricing information is subject to change without notice.
A model release document will be provided and will require your signature, this document allows us to use the photos in any of our promotional, sales and marketing efforts. The model release also gives you a license for personal use including printing and web posting.
I will need to see ID . If you are a minor I will need a signed Parental Release form, your parents are welcome to be in the studio during the shoot but not required.
