$275 Booking Fee

Planning Consultation / 45-minute Session* / “Try It On” Virtual Consultation

Your booking fee includes your pre-shoot consultation at your home or by phone, your 45-minute photo session, a private online gallery where you can view your collection for 30 days, and “try-it-on!” virtual session to see which of your images you love best on the walls of your own home.

We’ll discuss your wishes for your photo session, how and where you’d like to use your images, any special considerations for your group I should be aware of (physical/emotional considerations, locations, pet personality, etc.) and I can answer any questions you might have for me.

Your “try it on!” virtual consultation gives us a chance to try out different sizes and formats for your favorite photos in in a virtual recreation of your actual space. We’ll also be able to play with creative cropping options and see a variety of photo groupings so you can place your order with confidence.

Your non-refundable booking fee is paid at the time of (wait for it) booking, and secures your session date and time. Please see my terms for more details. *Longer sessions are available by request.
