STANDARD SESSION PRICING  2016
**Wedding & Senior Packages Excluded**
 

I am typically booked 1-2 weeks out during the winter months; however, the summer fills up quickly and can be booked 1-3 months out –  although I do leave flex time in my schedule for newborns and maternity (since those are more difficult to plan in advance), please make sure to contact me to check availability!

Session Retainer for all sessions is $75 and is due at the time of booking and is 100% non-refundable. If this fee is not received, your appointment will be canceled and your spot filled. This fee WILL apply to your final order!

Each portrait session is different and I offer a variety of options for you to fit within any budget. I highly advise that we chat initially to discuss all of the options so that I can accommodate your needs and build a session around your wants! I would love to welcome you into my store-front studio to get to know me, make sure I’m the right fit for you and talk about creating a customized session just for you!

  • Session fees cover immediate family only, $25 each for additional individual, or a custom quote for large multi generation families.
  • The sitting fee is required as a retainer to secure the photographer for all sessions. Your session may be rescheduled up to one time unless illness or weather was a factor, for those instances we will happily accommodate as many times as needed, within reason. We ask that rescheduled date take place within 60 days or the retainer will be forfeited.
  • Sick babies and parents are not allowed in the studio, due to the work I do with newborns it is very important that I keep a strict no sick policy.  If you must cancel an appointment, please call at least 24 hours in advance to reschedule.
  • Sales tax in the amount of 7% is applicable for all sessions and in-state orders.
  • All sessions include up to 15 miles of travel in each direction. Additional mileage incures a travel charge of $.50/mile.
  • All images are the property of Nicole Smith, Nicole Smith Photography  and are copyright protected. Please note that it is illegal to scan prints, right-click or screen shot images featured on the web site or the blog, sell or alter images received in CD or print format.
  • All images are naturally edited with mild blemish control and softening. Dark bags or black occurring eyes are lightened if needed. Natural occurring lines and facial expressions are not touched as that is you at the time of the photo. Extreme editing within photoshop is not something that will not be done. Images provided should be as natural as possible and once images are received, edits are complete. Additional charges will be incurred for special editing requests.
  • Print and product prices are guaranteed for 30 days from the date of your session. Prices are subject to change at any time.
  • After order, the images from your session are available for a period of 9 months from the date of your order, unless you are participating in Milestone Session. After that time, only ordered images will be archived, all others will be purged or reserved for studio use.
  • Due to the custom nature of the art produced, all sales are final. If there is found to be any defect in a print, the studio will re-print it at our discretion.
  • All print orders take approximately 2-3 weeks, canvases and other custom or boutique products may take longer. Turn around time may also be longer during studio closures, late summer and fall.
