Rates and Info this is important - MY SHOOTS ALWAYS INCLUDE ALL OF THE IMAGES. when i started this business and looked at the way photographers structured their pricing, it just didn't sit right with me. the idea of charging a sitting fee and then charging for the (often amazing) images was something i couldn't bring myself to implement. i wouldn't buy that service myself and didn't want to pitch a product i couldn't stand behind. furthermore, i think a photo session has a narrative to it that both creates and reveals a lot of connections between the family members, as well as between the subject and the camera/me. i charge $450 for a child/family portrait shoot. newborn shoots are $550 (they take twice as long...) that includes at least 150 or more images posted on an online gallery for your review. no watermarks. the images are full-sized and downloadable. YOU OWN ALL OF THE IMAGES! want your images on a usb thumb drive - $25. LOCATION currently, my studio's building is under renovation. with that in mind i shoot in peoples home all the time and bring lighting along. dark, garden level apartments are NO PROBLEM. honestly, i prefer the at home option for specifically for newborns - it can be a challenging time for new families and i think taking out travel to and from a studio makes the experience and results really great. i love shooting at the park, dumbo, or wherever you can think of. i'm happy to shoot in all the boroughs and i charge $50 to travel outside of brooklyn. also happy to travel further: westchester/nj add $100. DAY OF THE SHOOT a session usually takes from 1-2 hours. but i take pics until we're all happy - i don't rush things, especially with the little ones - and my timing can be flexible, particularly with the napping needs of a newborn. i can shoot out of my studio, or at your home (additional fee for manhattan), or at the park. CLOTHING - simple works best. avoid images, words, and heavy handed patterns on the clothing. if the subject is a little one and is good at spitting up, protect the outfit en route to the studio (bib...). dress your kid in their first outfit of choice. bring a few clothing options; gifts from family, things you love... bring your basic diaper bag - wipes, favorite toys, pacifiers, sophie... the goal is to keep your kids happy while we're taking pictures. if they get hungry, there's a super comfy chair for those who like to nurse. PRINTS you can buy prints if you like directly from your online gallery.
