Going digital for 2012 | Southeastern Minnesota Photographer

Friday, December 16th, 2011

Happy Holidays to all my readers – if you are still out there. 🙂 It’s been awhile since I’ve posted and my goal by the end of the year is to get a slideshow up of all my favorite images from 2011.

With 2011 quickly coming to an end and big changes for my family in 2012. I’ve decided to reevaluate my pricing structure and the way I do things. Several of you have asked, but I’ve been hesitant to move to all digital files simply because I LOVE seeing my pictures printed and worry that when just given a disk of images, they will sit there forever and not end up on the wall or in a frame where they can be viewed by everyone. But, I also know that it is often difficult to choose a few favorites from an entire session – you want to share them all and have them all. I understand that. I really do. 🙂 My other concern is that someone may take the images from their session and print at an inferior print lab who will only make the carefully edited images from a session look awful. My hope is that I will recommend a print lab to you that offers extremely affordable pricing and you can go there for your prints. I will still offer specialty products – canvas, metal prints, image boxes, mini books, etc. but the the bulk of the prints will be printed at your own convenience.

I will also be offering 3 mini session dates per year. One in Spring, one in Summer, and one in Fall. These will be 15-20 minute sessions offered on one day for those not wanting to book a full session. They will also come with digital files. I will post information on here and on my Facebook page when the dates get closer. They will have limited spots and will be offered until booked.

The 2012 digital pricing will be as follows:

Family and Child Portrait Sessions: $400

-This session includes on-location family or portrait session of up to 6 immediate family members. Family members over 6 will be charged at $25/person. **Please contact me for large group sessions to work out a price.**

-Sessions usually last between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours.

-Also includes 25 images (often more) edited and proofed with full print release. The images are usually provided in color and black and white.

Newborn Portrait Session: $500

-The session includes on-location newborn session. These generally last 2+ hours. Also include a few family and sibling shots, but the bulk of the session is dedicated to the precious newborn.

-Includes 25 images (often more) edited and proofed with full print release. These are usually provided in both color and black and white.

 

From now until December 31, 2011, I will offer the opportunity to get your name on my calendar for 2012 at the current price structure. The new pricing will be in effect for all sessions booked after 1/1/2012. Contact me today at amanda@amandakelloggphotography.com to get 2011 pricing for next year.

I’m thankful for all of you as clients. I’m hoping this change is good for all of us. 🙂

Merry Christmas

Amanda
