2017 Photographer’s Choice Sessions
What is a Photographer’s Choice session?
Simply put, these sessions are a set or theme chosen by the photographer, in advance, each month for a short and sweet session!
These sessions will have less images in your gallery to choose from than a full custom session and smaller packages starting at a lower price than a full custom Creative Session! By simplifying options and putting some limits on each session, we can give you more for you money by reducing our time involved in all the creative before and after stuff. The quality of the images and the Studio N experience are still the same, our time together is just much shorter and some things can then be automated behind the scenes!
Images of exact props and sets will be posted as they become available for 2017 sessions. Images below are not exact sets for the calendar year and props/locations may vary. These are sessions in the past with similar themes to give you an idea of what the session will feel like. If you have any questions on what to wear or what you can bring to make your session a little more personal and unique give us a call! While it’s the photographer’s choice on the theme and set we love to add your personal touch when we can to make your session super special to you!
“Why would I choose this session over a fully customized Creative Session?”
So you can come in every few months (instead of once a year) to have that beautiful child photographed when each little thing starts to change before your very eyes of course!
Truthfully, many clients have asked for a shorter option with less images to choose from so they can update all of the milestones in their child’s lives at a lower price point. I hear it all the time, “I only need a couple images, a few small prints to give to family, can’t we just get the digitals?” or “I just need one photo for the Christmas Card.” Yes, yes you can and here’s how we can make that happen.
If you are looking for a custom family portrait experience from start to finish this type of session is NOT for you. If you are not sure what you need, give us a call and we will help you figure it out! There are some limitations to these types of sessions of course but quality will NEVER suffer! That’s a promise! All newborn, maternity, baby, senior and in home sessions subject to Creative Session fees and regular portrait pricing guide. Call studio for more information.
