Conversing with the two teenagers that are at my house today, Paige and Olivia, they are giving me suggestions on how to make studio pricing clearer. Paige says that her friends are asking, "Hey your Aunt Vicki, what is this and what is what? and how do I....?" Her response? "ummm I dunno" Yes, she is still in training.
Usually in the professional photography world we don't want to slam prices right in front of your potential client. As artists, we photographers would like to think that you are choosing us because you see our vision. You get where we are coming from, you appreciate a beautiful catch light and elegant pose. That you can tell we have educated ourselves, school ourselves, honing our skills to produce a not notch quality image. I realize however, that's not always the case. Sometimes with me, price is the factor. I get that.
I just built a home last year. I acted as my own contractor. There were lots of details, lots of pricing options. I had never done any of that type of thing before. I decided to hire people I trusted, knew I could count on and were master's at their craft. It was a labor of love and now that we are finished I'm thrilled with it. However, when I was building I knew what I wanted, and then I would see what I could afford. I could see how it works the same with senior portraits. I have tried to base my session on all price ranges.
So upon the request of my beautiful niece Paige Michelle, let me take you through the step by step of how to book with our studio.
Okay well first lets look at Paige.
Okay back to pricing. So here we go.
Step one. Decide which session you want to book.
Our two most popular are Master's Choice and Senior Experience. Don't be shocked the pricing of the Day With You, and Master's Choice, read the fine print. With those two sessions you receive digital negatives AND a proofbook with all your edited images.
About 8 to 10 days after your session I will upload your proofs to my web site. You then have 14 days to place your order on-line. Sometimes you need help ordering. It's a lot to decide! I get it! So that's when you come to my house, we sit at the table with a glass of sweet tea and cookies and we order.
Here are a few examples of collections you can purchase. Now if you need to mix and match something, and work on a custom collection for you that's okay too. I do this all the time. Sometimes you need more wallets than 8x10's or you need a 16x20 but only 2 8x10's. I get it. I smell what your steppin in. I get where your coming from. I'm here to help!
Then around April, you call me up and say you are ready for those Graduation Invites, we design some cool stuff together and then print them up.
So that's it in a nutshell. First select the session you want, second proof, third order.
One more look at Paige before we go....
So when your ready to book your session, give me a shout!
