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. Sessions are priced with a sitting fee and then all digitals and products are purchased separately so that you may choose what best fits your needs.   All of my images are guaranteed through pro labs only, as “budget” labs do not print in the same quality. There will be an 8% state tax added to all prints and products purchased. Sitting fee is due at the time of booking to secure your time slot and the remaining balance of what you decide to purchase is due after you choose what you want from your gallery. I accept cash and credit/debit cards.

Sitting fees and a la carte pricing

Sitting fee is due at time of booking, and is non-refundable.

Sitting fee includes time and talent of photographer, use of all studio props, outfits, maternity gowns, and backdrops, and travel fees within 10 miles of Manlius.  All digitals and products are purchased a la carte in addition to the sitting fee.

Sitting fee for newborn sessions is $150 and sitting fee for all other sessions is $50.  There is no sitting fee for senior yearbook studio sessions or professional headshot sessions.

All sessions are 1 hour, with the exception of newborns that can be up to 3 hours, and include up to 10 people.

Portraits are shown to you in an online, private gallery.  All portraits are fully edited and raw images will not be given.  Once your decision has been made and paid for, unwatermarked portraits will be released.

Senior yearbook portrait – $50 – includes online gallery to choose photo from, one digital image for yearbook, one 8×10 print and 50% off sitting fee for outdoor portrait session.  I will turn yearbook photo in to your school.

Professional headshots – 1 digital image for $50, 3 for $100 – includes private online gallery to choose from.  Print release is included to allow you to use for your marketing purposes.  Full branding sessions also available by request. 

Yearbook portraits and professional headshots do not require a sitting fee and take 15-20 minutes in my studio.  Full branding sessions do require the sitting fee and can take place anywhere you choose.

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  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.
