Last weekend we participated in our first vendor show, the Lyons Fall Bazaar. There was a pretty good turnout for it being a first time event, and it was nice to meet other local vendors. We even got a head start on some Christmas shopping.
We held a drawing and gave away a $50 and a $25 gift certificate. Congrats to our winners - Melissa Hudik of Delta, OH ($50) and Kathy Johnston of Wauseon, OH ($25).
Gift certificates are also available to purchase for the holidays (or anytime!) and can be used towards any of our services or products.
Thanks to everyone who stopped out on Saturday to support local vendors!
We met the Shaw family for their portrait session at Secor Metropark last weekend. They told us that it had been 13 years since their last family portrait, so we were happy to help them update their walls. It was a pretty chilly day, but the wind died down in the afternoon and we were able to get some nice shots.
We've recently made new changes to our portraiture session prices. And no, we didn't raise our prices; in most cases, the session fee went down. In the past, we used different price points based on subject matter - a family of four had a higher fee than a sitting with just one child, for example. With the new pricing, we actually simplified our session fees and aimed for more customizable options. Here's the run down:
The Basic Session
Our basic session fee is now a $50 flat fee for a one hour session at one location (within 25 miles of our studio), with up to 6 people. That's it. It can be family, kids, maternity, even a high school senior. This session will typically yield 20-40 edited images.
Customize the Basic Session
If you need more camera time, want to travel to more locations, or have a larger group to be photographed, it's simple to add on more services. Add $25 for each of the following that applies - additional locations, an extra 30 minutes of shooting, travel to a location further than 25 miles, or a group larger than 6 people.
Prints & Products
Once your session is complete, the edited images are placed in an online, password-protected gallery for you to view within 2-3 weeks. When you're ready to order, we offer prints, standouts, gallery wraps, or a disc of all the edited images with print release - whatever you prefer!
For those who want even more, we've also put together some packages that combine our services and products at a discounted rate or with freebies. For example, our "Bump to Bundle" package includes a one hour maternity session, one hour newborn session, $100 print credit, 25 birth announcements, and a Facebook timeline cover, all for $200.
We hope that our new price structure will make it easier to compare and select services, while giving our customers more options and flexibility. Links to PDF files of our session and print prices can be found below. As always, we welcome any comments, suggestions or questions!
We've had Renea and Richard's June 2014 wedding on the books for almost 8 months now, so we were pretty excited to meet them in person for the first time for their engagement session. For this fun couple who met in high school (we love that!), we tried out some new locations we've recently discovered. Renea's not into the "traditional" wedding photography, and we are looking forward to getting some fun and creative shots next June!
