Sessions with Shoey are fun and creative.
Prior to any studio or on-location session, we discuss who will be at the session, where we will do the shoot and what to wear. I have some favorite parks where I like to photograph and I am game to learn about new places and work with your ideas.
Approximately 2 weeks after the session, families meet with me at my studio for a viewing and purchasing session that typically takes one and a half to two hours. We look at your collection of images and I help you choose your favorites for order. Many families choose to invest in a collection of prints either in an album, gorgeous box of matted prints or a collection of framed wall and gift prints.
What distinguishes me from many area photographers is that the majority of my clients purchase heirloom quality prints and albums for their homes and gifts. Yes, digital files are available for purchase. But, what will pass the test of time are the prints that grace our homes, quietly entering your subconsciousness because you and your children SEE THEM EVERYDAY.
Pricing for Prints
Starting at $150 for a Fine Art Gift Print, you can choose from one print a collection of wall and table-sized prints for yourself and your family. Families typically spend between $600 and $2500 on prints.
Gorgeous Keepsake Boxes that hold up to 18 Matted Prints start at $1300 for 10 prints.
Albums are a fabulous way to tell your story with a collection of photos. I offer hand-crafted matted and flush-mount albums with your choice of luscious cover materials. Albums start at $600.
Personal and Family Portrait Sessions
Portrait sessions are either in my studio or on location at a park. These typically last about an hour. During that time, I photograph the whole family as well as individuals and sub-groupings (parents as a couple, kids alone and with each other). There is no special fee for larger groups, in fact, I LOVE photographing multi-generational family groups. Photo sessions are $250 (weekday) and $350 (weekend). Prints are sold separately.
Maternity + Newborn
Pregnancy portraits are so special. My goal is to help you feel absolutely beautiful as we celebrate YOU and your gorgeous body. Sessions may include your partner and/or your other kids. A great time for your pregnancy shoot is during your 8th month.
When you choose to hire me for your maternity photo session, you can add on a newborn photo session for $50.
