A session fee is the fee a photographer charges for the service of actually taking photos. Some photographers refer to this fee as a 'sitting fee'. There, of course, is a lot more to this than simply pointing the camera and snapping a photo but in the simplest terms, you are paying for the photographer to take a photo.
It's one of our most FAQ. For some photographers, it's as basic as you getting one photographer in a park with your family - a no-frills option that works for many. For those who have higher expectations or needs, there are photographers who's session fees cover a wide range of services.
At Country Roots Photography, our session fee covers the following:
- the photographer
- an assistant (when needed)
- on-location or studio shoot
- props and client closet
- in-studio viewing and design session
What is not covered in our session fee is deliverables. These are the prints, digital images, albums, wall art, or cards. We pride ourselves on an impeccable experience and amazing photos and products, but more importantly, we are proud that we offer a truly unique and personalized experience for each of our clients, and this includes their purchases. We have no minimum purchase and customizable packages for a wide range of needs.
I am a lifestyle photographer, and my style is geared towards capturing real moments! This means getting you interacting rather than posing and having a fun time together - because that's where the magic happens!
My outdoor photos happen at sunset, or occasionally sunrise. I do not shoot midday due to my style. It is often later than young toddler/babies bed times in the summer so be prepared to alter your nap schedule on your photo day if you fear your little one may be tired by sunset.
Studio sessions take place weekday mornings and afternoons.
I have a full client closet featuring women's, children and some teens clothing and accessories. You can book a client closet styling appointment and come to the studio to try on gowns, and from there I will provide styling for the rest of your family. If you do not want to come to the studio you you will receive a link to images of many of the women's gowns to narrow down your choices and I will style everyone else based off of your preferences. I will also send a custom link for an online styling questionnaire so that I am styling your children and spouse based upon your preferences and not my own. Clients who trust me to style them always love their photos so much more than when they try to tackle it themselves!
That's okay! Many children are shy or have a hard time with posing for photos - which is why we forget the posing and just get you all hanging out and loving on each other! You just enjoy the moment and I'll worry about the photos.
After booking, deposits/retainers are non-refundable, as I am holding the date for you and turning away other clients. If you need to reschedule, a $100 rescheduling fee will apply and a new date must be selected within 30 days of your original date.
Booking well in advance is recommended! My current wait times for session openings are around 4 weeks, but cancellations do happen once in awhile!
Depending on your session type & the number of locations the time can be anywhere from a fast 30 minutes to a full day of adventures where I tag along and document the action! The typical family session is an hour.
Your retainer is due before the date can be reserved. The remainder of your balance is to be paid by the start of your session. Photos cannot be edited until payment has been made in full.
I accept payment via cash, check or PayPal. In house payment plans are available.
No need to worry! If your shoot date gets rained out, we can either select an alternate location or reschedule on a date that fits you OR we can always splash around in the rain!
If it's a studio session, you can view them same day! I either let you relax on the couch or send you out for ice cream for 30-60 minutes while I cull and edit your images for you to then come back and select. Instant gratification!
Otherwise you will receive an email from your customized client portal to view and select. PLEASE DO NOT SCREENSHOT these will not print or share well!
Weddings could take 2-3 months. All other sessions could take up to 15-30 days from selection depending on the busy season. I do not guarantee sneak peeks as it slows down the turn around time for those waiting on their galleries ahead of you. Entire galleries might be the first time you see your images, but they are always worth the wait! :)
