Congratulations on choosing to commission custom photography to enjoy for years to come! The Photography Session Fee is 250 as a standalone session, or 200 for a dog-only portrait session as an add-on service while your dog is staying 5 days or more at Sierra Dogs for boarding.
The Session Fee includes:
- Initial in-person consult (may be done by phone & email if you prefer)
- Photo session of approximately two hours on location for up to two pets (and two people, if you choose) ; within 50 miles drive of Placerville, California (Note: the boarding add-on session is for boarding dogs only)
- 20 to 30 professional quality custom images fully edited by hand, including leash removal or other basic retouching if necessary
- Personalized viewing & product ordering meeting at Sierra Luna Photography in Placerville (can be conducted in your home, schedule permitting, with advance notice).
The Session Fee covers the photographer’s time, talent, and experience needed to produce custom images suitable for heirloom albums and wall art. Products, including digital files, are purchased separately and customized to each client’s needs. To ensure the images I create will meet your needs, we will spend time before the session discussing which products are right for you and your home.
After the photography session, during the viewing and ordering meeting, you can select a package or a la carte products for purchase. Packages begin at 800, and represent a significant savings over a la carte purchases, which begin at 150. Most clients spend an average of 2000 to 4000, but there is no minimum purchase requirement — you only buy what you love! I can custom design packages to meet your needs and budget, whether that’s for multiple sessions to show the growth of your new puppy, or last-minute tribute sessions for an ailing senior pet. Just tell me what you’re looking for, and I’ll be happy to discuss options. There are limited session dates available, especially during the popular Autumn months (– love that Fall color!), so a non-refundable retainer of 175 is required to hold a session date, with the balance due on the day of the session.
*All prices are in US$ and do not include 8% sales tax. Prices are valid as of July 2016 and are subject to change.
