What is included in your session & Important Info:
-The photographer's time and talent planning, photographing, and creating a custom photo experience that showcases your family's personality, as well as the photographer's photographic style.
-1 to 3 hour sessions. This varies between the different types of shoots. Newborn and senior shoots generally require the most time.
- Multiple outfit changes...We love to assist you in color schemes and outfit styles to wear, and our advice may be beneficial in helping to create timeless, cohesive images that flatter the group and look great in your home!
-Travel Fees...An additional charge is added to photo shoots outside of the Lake Forest/Irvine area to compensate for additional time and travel fees.
-An assistant is often on hand during family shoots to help with making shoots run more smoothly. General Manager, Steven Cook, and husband to Owner/Lead Photographer, Sheri Cook assists in many of the sessions. Between Sheri's patient, welcoming personality, and technical skills and Steven Cook's ability to get even the most serious child to crack a smile, they make an amazing team. Neither of them are afraid to make a fool out of themselves if it gets your child to laugh. They have plently of tricks up their sleeves to do the job!
-Online viewing gallery of professionally post processed images that have been narrowed down based on the best overall expressions, poses, and composition/lighting. Although the final purchased images will be professionally skin retouched for portrait/fine art sessions, newborn and senior (excludes Lifestyle Sessions/Your Story Album Collection which are more organic/less editing), it is never our goal to make you not look like yourself, but to accentuate the beauty that is already there. With the special attention paid in achieving the best possible lighting, choice of lenses, and technical skills, we are able to capture you beautifully in camera. When needed we will minimize incidental acne, under eye circles, hair fly-aways and wrinkles.
-Professional Prints...There is an option to purchase affordable professional quality prints from your online gallery that are delivered directly to you. From our personal experience, when comparing our professional vendor's prints to places such as Walgreens/Wal-mart, the prints are often rendered too dark or too light and appear to be lackluster in quality. Those places are great for personal snapshots, but we don't recommend them for professional art. Our lab offers more color selections, custom sizes, accurate color rendition, and unique high quality products.
-Downloads...Final purchased images can be downloaded directly from your online gallery or you can add a flash drive to any package for $60, which includes shipping costs. Sorry, but we no longer off DVD's.
-Groups...Family sessions are priced for up to 6 people. Please add an additional $20 for each person. Have a larger group or event? Please inquire about special pricing.
-Print Release...You will receive a print release for most sessions to use images for personal, non-commercial use. We retain the copyright.
-Session Range...On location sessions start at $400. Wedding coverage starts at $2,100. Please check out our photography collections for info and pricing relating to the type of session you would like to schedule.
