Fairy Sessions, Senior Sessions, and Family Sessions
Deciding to go with a photographer is a big decision. You have investigated, looked at galleries, and compared prices. I respect that. If you have made it this far, then you are considering me, and I am honored! At this point, you have seen my galleries, talked to friends, and you are interested in what I have to offer. I will try to make the process of hiring me, scheduling, and payments as painless as possible. Please scroll all the way down to the bottom to read how this process works.
Let me share with you what I offer:
Fairy Session: 250.00 session fee includes a Folio box containing (1) 8×10 of your choice, (5) 5x7s of your choice. You can upgrade your folio box to a personalized folio box for an additional 30.00. After our post -shoot consult, you will be given an online link to your gallery where you can purchase additional packages or a la carte images.
I. PRE–SHOOT Consult– discuss location, choose tutu, and discuss what to expect. Your daughter should come “hair ready” with light make up (concealer under the eyes, powder, gloss on lips).
II. SHOOT- We will spend 2 hours shooting your session. The session is usually shot about an hour before “Golden Hour” and on through “Golden Hour”. This gives me time to build a rapport with my subject, and it gives my subject opportunities to change costumes! Also, we will need to take short breaks to move from one location to another. If you have more than one daughter, that is ok. I will include siblings at no extra charge.
III. POST-SHOOT- We will meet to view your images. At this meeting, you will order your prints, canvases, etc. Every decision maker needs to be present. After your initial order, your gallery ( at least 30 hand-edited images) will be posted so that other family members can make additional purchases. This gallery is open for two weeks. Once closed, your gallery can be re-instated for another 2 weeks for a 50.00 fee. There are three multi-image packages from which you may choose, or you can purchase a la carte. Digital files for fairy photoshoots are not for sale.
Fairy Costumes: Snow Owl, Spring Meadow Fairy, Fall Orange and Purple Fairy, Sage Green and Gold Fall Fairy, Purple and Gold Fairy, Pink Tiny -Tot Fairy, and I have “Frozen Inspired” ice blue tutus!!! I also have beautiful iridescent fairy wings!
Senior sessions: Incentive for seniors ~ if you refer a friend, and that friend pays the 50.00 to secure a photoshoot, you will be given a 25% discount on your print order.
Session 1: 250.00 sitting fee for a basic two hour shoot at a location of your choice, wardrobe changes allowed. You will also have an online gallery with at least 30 hand-edited images with an option to purchase from 3 multi-image package plans or a la carte items. Digital images are 50.00 each.
Session 2: 300.00 The shoot is a three hour shoot, multiple locations, multiple wardrobe changes. Over 50 shots in your gallery. Digital files at full resolution are 50.00 each.
In any of these sessions, I can turn some into Black and White or Sepia.
Children’s Sessions (your clothing)
Adventure Package: 150.00 Online gallery with at least 25 hand -edited images. You may purchase additional portraits either by selecting a multi-image package or purchasing a la carte items.
Family Sessions: 200 .00 Online gallery with at least 30 hand-edited images. You can purchase additional photos here either through a multi – image package (I offer 3 different packages.) or a la carte items. Digital files are 50.00 each.
The Process for any of the Photoshoots: We agree upon a date, place, and time. I will send you a contract for you to sign. This contract delineates my responsibilities, price of session, the date and time of session, and your expectations. The contract addresses issues about cancellations, use of other photographers, and your deposit amount. The deposit can be paid via Paypal, a check, cash, or credit card. The deposit in non-refundable. It is applied to the balance of your sitting fee.
We will meet, and I will conduct the shoot. The balance of the sitting fee is paid at the shoot. I will go home and edit all photos and upload them to my online gallery, and then I will send you a link to the online gallery. It is there that you will make your purchases.
Online Gallery: Your images will be uploaded to an online gallery on www.lauratallophotography.smugmug.com. You will be able to view them in a large format slideshow. These images will be watermarked. Watermarking does not affect printing. Unless you purchase a digital file, you will not be able to download your images. It is unlawful to pirate the images and print from another printing lab. All online galleries are open for two weeks. Once closed, a 50.00 re-upload fee will be required to have the gallery re-instated. I do not sell digital files for artistic renditions (portraits that require compositing, painting, or have artistic edits).
