Okay - I'm going to be honest - I struggle with pricing! I just want EVERONE to have portraits! (Sorry - I wear my heart on my sleeve! I guess that's why I was an Early Childhood teacher for so long!)
I work very hard to try to keep my prices at a good level. I was told once - by another photographer - to NEVER use the word affordable in connection with my business! Her thought was that it makes your photography look cheap & not "high end". Again - that's not me!
I'd rather be known as a photographer who works with your family & does her best to make your portraits affordable! I'll let my work speak for itself! I work with my clients to produce the kind of portraits that they want! Then we work together to have wonderful prints & products made! I can have everything made from a keychain to a 30"x40" wall portriat! I'm sure you will be pleased!
Sessions from Newborns to Families!
My sessions for children, families, etc. . . . are $50 PLUS you get $20 in print credit. That means that when you order - you will receive $20 towards your order total. I don't have time limits on my sessions - we just work until we get the shots that we're after!
Senior sessions are a little higher - with more FREEBIES! These sessions are higher because we frequently go to a few different locations & I usually do a lot more editing on your final prints.
One hour session $75.00
Two hour session $100.00
Three hour session $150.00
All Senior Portrait Sessions include:
· Unlimited clothing changes allowed by time.
· Unlimited locations allowed by time. This includes indoors studio shots as well as outdoor shots in the Paris & Marshall, IL areas.
· Online ordering gallery with up to 40 proofs to choose from.
· Portraits will be fully edited once ordered
· Each session receives 16 wallets of one final portrait!
· Friends, family & pets welcome – never an extra charge!
Let me capture those special moments on your special day! You will receive a Proof Portfolio of your edited portraits as well as a DVD of your photos. Best of all – you will have permission to print your own photos! You will also have $100 in print credit to be used for prints of any size!
Each wedding package includes a free engagement session and complimentary 8x10 engagement portrait! More portraits may be ordered at my studio or through my online ordering system.

Other types of Sessions
I continually expand the types of sessions that I do! This is a partial list! If you have a request - just call & ask!
- Class Reunions - I take candid shots as your classmates arrive & you visit with friends. Then, just prior to your meal - we arrange everyone for your group shot. I then edit all of the pictures & burn a CD for each classmate that would like one. The cost is ONLY $15! I make the sale that evening & sometimes edit the same night! Then I just hand out the CD's with permission to print!
- Family Reunions - I will come do pictures of your family reunion for $50 plus mileage if it is outside of Paris. I can do groups as well as candids. Everything will be put on my website ordering system for the family to make any print purchases that they would like.
- Events - I would love to record special events such as birthdays, baptisms, sports events, Paris High School May Fete, etc. . . .
- School Pictures - I am exanding my School Portrait Photography! I've taken School Portraits for some local Head Start classes. I would LOVE to add your school, preschool or daycare to my list!
- Team Sports - I have taken local Softball & Coaches Pitch pictures for several years! Again - I would enjoy adding your local organized sports league to my list of clients!
