Portrait Pricing Guide
I believe that it takes time to capture you, your family or your 4 legged family members in your most natural state. That is why I only do one session per night. Sessions are outside ( for now ) stay tuned for information on studio availability later in 2016! We pick the location together. I have several locations from seashore retreats to vineyards and cityscapes that I know very well. But there may be a location that is important to you and your family. So if it is important to you? Its important to me! I'm always up for an adventure!
The first standard package is typically for a family portrait session, engagement session, senior portrait session or something similar. You can have as many "wardrobe changes" as you can fit in, multiple locations if thats what you would like to do! The entire evening is yours! With this package you will receive a minimum of 20 awesome images that are all yours on a disc and you can do whatever you would like with them. You select these images from my website where they will be loaded within 7 days of our shoot, although typically sooner. You may purchase additional images or download images for use in print, email or social media.
Do you have just a few more people than that 4 person limit? Add $50 per person ...not per hour, per person! Family dog? same thing :)
Larger Families, Groups of Friends & Special Occasions
Pretty often I'm called to do a large photo with 10-20 or even 100 people in it. Family,business, school or sports teams often want to capture everyone together at once! Luckily, I'm really great at this! lol. Maybe its my law enforcement background or my experience gathering the masses on several other jobs? Whatever it is... I can get people together, looking at the camera and even smiling! Unless it's Uncle Henry who has never smiled in his life. But I'll make sure he's in the back row.
Just the Dog
One of my absolute FAVORITE sessions! Although this can be very unpredictable, I LOVE my furry friends! This takes patience and wide open spaces. My suggestion for the best result is to have your dog groomed, get to the location early and go for a walk! Again, No time limits on this, just hourly rates with 15-20 great images of your family pet or you and your pet. Images uploaded to my site, you select and get a disc within 7 days of our shoot. Additional images are available to buy for print, email or social media.
Hire Me For An All Day Outing
Going on a day trip with the family? Having a backyard BBQ? Believe it or not... This is one of the absolute BEST ways to capture your family in stunning detail. Pricing is hourly, although we can discuss that further. Depending on the hours, theres no telling how many images you will get. However, I promise you at a minimum, 15 per hour. This can include a family portrait session at no additional cost,however, the purpose of this package is to have me fade into the background and capture expressions that really bring out the authentic you! As an added bonus? I'm kinda fun to hang out with...
Pop Up Mini Sessions
Everybody loves the mini sessions! I do mini sessions based on availability and around specific Holidays. Pay attention to my Facebook page for announcements and book quickly because they fill up fast! Be ready, Be on time and don't be cranky :) These are in 1 location only, announced a few days before or with specific dates and rain dates surrounding Holidays!
Like my Facebook page here Diane Boas Photography so you can see them announced!
If you have scrolled this far? You will notice a popular category that seems to be absent. "Newborns" I did not forget about it... I just prefer not to do Newborn Photography. As a photographer you can't specialize in everything and it is so important to know what you are and are not good at. With that said, and even though the vibe of this website is "Oh my God I'm so Great!" ... I know my limits as well....and Newborns are just not my thing. Kids? Toddlers? ABSOLUTELY! It just means that I do not put babies in baskets with cute little hats.
I do know several photographers that are Excellent at this! So don't hesitate to contact me and I will gladly give you a few to look at.
