Photo Sessions

All sessions are quoted for locations within a 10 mile radius of Manlius, NY. If you would like a session outside of this radius, please contact me for prices. I try my best to get your photos back to you within 2 weeks of your session and will post sneak peeks on my Facebook page prior to then if a model release is signed. All prices are for my basic collection which includes 10 digital images and a print release. There are not additional costs unless you choose to purchase more images than your package includes or prints of your images. You can purchase additional digitals, along with prints, canvases and books through my professional lab. All of my images are guaranteed through pro labs only, as “budget” labs do not print in the same quality. There will be 8% state tax added to all prints purchased not included in collections. Retainer fees are due at the time of booking to secure your time slot and the remaining balance is due prior to your session. I accept cash and credit/debit cards.

Cancellations

The non-refundable retainer fee is due at the time of booking.  The remaining balance is due prior to the session, payable by either credit/debit card or cash.

In the event that you need to cancel, please do so at least 48 hours prior to your session by text to (315) 400-1540 or email to monicabrowningphotography@gmail.com.  We will reschedule your session as soon as we are both available.  If you cancel twice, you may be at risk of losing your retainer fee.

If we need to cancel due to weather, I will be in touch prior to your session.  If it is raining, our outdoor shoot will be rescheduled, unless you’d like to move it indoors.  If it is above 40 degrees, we can still do an outdoor shoot if you dress accordingly.  Please bundle little ones up as it is very hard to get cold kids to smile.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
