Photography Budgets: Let’s talk $

It’s not fun talking about the $ you invest in your family pictures, but it’s a conversation I want to have with you.

A few years ago we received four quotes to renovate our front porch. My partner and I are not rich, but it was obviously important to us to get the project done right. It was our FRONT porch, after all. Ultimately we hired the second most expensive contractor- not because we wanted to pay an extra couple of grand! But he appeared to be competent and experienced, and he gave us a rate that we felt matched his skills.

We all have different budgets for our family pictures and that’s okay! There is a photographer for EVERY budget, I promise. The important thing is that you place the same amount of value on your photos as the price that you end up paying- like we did when we hired our contractor. (He did a pretty fab job on our porch, by the way!)

Not only do I want to give you an amazing product (after 15 yrs of photographing professionally I sure hope it is!), but I more than anything want you to be happy with what you receive. Not just thumbs-up like-it-on-facebook content but the kind of happy that has you telling everyone who will listen that you had an amazing experience with me!!!! I do my best every day to LISTEN to my clients. And I truly want to hear what you have to say. Because I value what I do as much as I hope you do. Please email me any questions or concerns– or if you’re all about gushing, leave a review on Google!

But back to budget… I work with families of all different lifestyles and income levels! If you value my work but aren’t sure about your budget, let’s talk. I offer payment plans to spread out the cost of the session over a longer period of time, as well as gift certificates that family and friends can gift you! Just share this link with your family and friends, and they can purchase a gift certificate for you easily online within minutes.

And of course reach out with any questions. I look forward to chatting!
