Thank you for your interest in AliMae Photography!
All AliMae Photography sessions include 40 full resolution digital images of your choice from your online gallery with copyright release.
Prints can be ordered directly from your online gallery, but if you choose to order your prints yourself, I ask that you use a reputable printing company such as mpix.com or a local printing lab. Sure, you’ll get a pretty cheap deal at some of those labs in your local grocery store or pharmacy but you get what you pay for and I can almost guarantee that you will be disappointed.
Deposits are non-refundable, however, they can be applied to another session when given 72 hour cancellation notice. Exceptions are at my discretion.
Session pricing is as follows:
Maternity, Children, Families and Couples - $200
One hour session during sunrise or sunset at an outdoor location for up to 6 family members ($20 for each additional person). ***$50 deposit due at time of booking.
Newborns - $250
In home session and will include a mixture of posed shots as well as lifestyle family shots. ***$50 deposit due at time of booking.
(See Newborn Session Information)
Seniors - $200
Senior sessions include 3 outfit changes and 2 locations. If additional locations and outfit changes are desired, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing. ***$50 deposit due at time of booking.
Wedding packages begin at $1,200 and are dependent on size of wedding and my time on location. Because of the intricate details and magical moments captured in a wedding I do not limit the digital images released. I edit the photos as in any other session and present an online gallery of your photos where you can order prints, but you receive all the edited images and copyright release. ***A deposit of $300 is required at time of booking. Deposits are non-refundable if cancellation is within 72 hours of event.
Three weeks prior to your session I will contact you via phone or email to discuss expectations, locations, props and clothing for your session. I encourage clients to think outside the box and incorporate their family traditions using heirlooms, vintage furniture, favorite toys, books…anything that’s special to your family. The more you personalize your session, the more you will cherish your photos for a lifetime.
what to wear
So let’s talk clothing.
The most agonizing part of photos for me is what to wear so if you’re struggling, trust me, I’ve been there! You are spending a small fortune on these photos and you want them to be absolutely perfect.
Overall, I personally am a huge fan of lots of color so I always pick colors that stand out and are bright and fun for my kids, but there is so much beauty and magic in soft, subtle colors as well so it truly depends on your style.
Please feel free to take pictures of your outfits and send them to me! I would love to help you plan your session so you achieve everything you envision.
