Hi! And thanks so much for your interest in our family portrait services!
Our team of staff photographers would love the opportunity to work with you and your family. We have sessions available all week long, and even offer both AM and PM time slots to accommodate your schedule.
How much is this?
The value of your investment is based on the photographer’s time and talent and we currently offer one simple package for $300 plus NJ State Sales Tax. This includes: your photographer, lab development and retouching, and all images available for preview in a private gallery for you to choose your final selections.
Do I get the digital copies?
You may choose to purchase high-resolution digital copies of your images, prints, canvases and even albums. You can do this in person in the studio, or online through your personal gallery. It is $500 to retain the disc of your edited high res images.
We do offer a print release that will allow you to reproduce images for your personal use – yes, you may print your photos elsewhere. However, many clients prefer not to be bothered dealing with labs and professional photo orders, so we offer a full line of products and we can handle the whole process for you.
Who will be my photographer?
You will be assigned one of our studio photographers for your session. Your assigned photographer has a portfolio available to for your viewing at any time. You will also be speaking to your photographer personally before your session to go over any questions you may have about your session.
Can Ann take my family portraits?
Yes, she can. Her fee is $500 plus NJ State Sales Tax. That covers her time, lab development and retouching, and all final high-resolution images in a private gallery to preview.
Her rate is higher?
Yes, of course. As the gallery and studio owner, along with her reputation and experience, clients pay a premium for her talent and experience.
What to wear?
While some may opt for the more traditional white shirts and jeans, over the years we have found that picking 2 or 3 colors that mix well together wind up looking great in photos.
But what if I have to cancel?
All deposits are nonrefundable, however we do understand that you may need to cancel your session due to illness. Please do your best to provide the studio with at least 48 hours of notice so that your time may be made available to other clients.
What if it rains?
Any outdoor portrait entails many variables. Please be open to the fact that blue skys and sunshine don’t always make the best photos. The most important thing is that everyone is present and comfortable. We like to make the final call on your session as close to the schedule time as possible in the interest of getting you the best lighting for your portrait.
