June Photo Session Availability
Now that it is 2012 and it has been almost a year since I started booking sessions only on certain days as listed around the 15th of every month on my blog here, I must say it has been working out pretty well for me and has been allowing me to spend more time with family. Besides the approx. 15 sessions a month I am shooting as well as about 10 meetings a month for my business and not including the 60 hours of editing a week I do, I also shoot 80 weddings per year on top of all that! I thrive off of keeping busy and I believe that being busy also keeps in the "know-how" of new trends to keep, stay away from, and just a ton of experience on top of the photography degree I attained 12 years ago. In January I hit my 800th wedding- I work weddings almost every single Friday and Saturday! In general, the session pricing and what is included is generally the same, except for a few small items- please read below what is included in the sessions! Session availability for the upcoming month for those inquiring about booking a: Senior Photo Session; Family Photo Session; Maternity Session; Boudoir Photo Session; Animal Photo Session; Engagement Photo Session and Newborn Photo Sessions will generally be posted on or around the 15th of every month (for example session dates for February will be posted around January 15th); and I will do my best to let everyone know here on my blog when specifically they will be posted. Booking sessions are on a first come, first served basis and your best bet is to pick up to 3 dates/times that will work for you. For newborn sessions, please pick a date closest to your actual due date, and then we can work around the actual date he/she is born. Please be sure to pick a location, or to at least have something in mind when you email me. Once I answer your email in the order it was received and the date/time is available, I will send you a confirmation email confirming the date/time/location of the session, the "inclement weather" date, as well as the total fee that will be due the day of the session. Please see below for the pricing for all sessions, as well as what is included. Please also note, more in depth the following: *A specified "bad weather" date will given to you at the time of booking the appointment, if we have an outdoor shoot scheduled. This is only for inclement weather and is not used as a "reschedule" date if you can no longer make your appointment. I will email you the morning of our shoot if weather is expected to be bad for a good part of the day, which will be at my call (bringing electronic equipment in the rain won't work, neither will sessions in the goopy mud since I like to do sitting/laying shots) lol) Please understand that if we have an outdoor scheduled shoot, if it rains the day of the session we cannot change it to an indoor shoot- these days everyone wants money for photos inside of their "haven," and it is too difficult last minute to schedule- we will just use the rain "reschedule" date I will give you when you book. *I totally understand that many of you are out of towners, and sometimes this can be difficult to schedule. Just pretty please understand that I am doing my best not only to be able to have a social life with my family, but also not to make you have to book out 6 months in advance like the past. On top of that, it is important to get photos to my peeps (you) in a timely manner, so this is helping with that :) *If the dates I list on my blog don't work with your schedule, just wait until right around the 15th of the month when I post the availability I have for the next month. Included in ALL the above listed session is the following: *Approx. one hour shoot at the location of your choice (travel fees may apply; please see below) *Approx. 300 high resolution images captured and burned on a DVD *Approx. 20 "edited" images- aka BW, Sepia, color enhancements, etc, which will be my favorite photos I make these enhancements to- also burned on a DVD *5 5x7's and 1 8x10 prints of my choosing- and don't worry, I have pretty good taste ;) *Photo release so you may make copies whenever and wherever you wish *All of the above sent in about 4 weeks to the address you provide via USPS Priority Mail The Cost Is....... *The cost is $175 for Family/Children Sessions (for families up to five people) and all other above listed sessions. Payment is due the day of the session, and travel fees are as follows: Anything within 15 miles of Dearborn, MI 48124 there is no extra fee; 15-25 miles $35; 26-40 miles $45; (over 40 miles, please inquire) *Engagement sessions for booked wedding photography clients of Amanda Williams Photography: $150 Same travel fees listed above apply.
