Like so many other mom's, my love for photography grew out of the desire to capture the fleeting moments of my boy's childhoods. I believe life is beautiful even when it's messy (sometimes, ESPECIALLY when it's messy) and documenting it is meaningful! Nothing makes me happier than to walk away from a session not only with photos I'm confident my clients will love, but also knowing everyone had fun! Yes, you can have fun at a photo shoot. I'm happy to share that many families have texted me afterwards to say, "Thank you, we all had such a good time!"
*Please note: I require a $100 nonrefundable retainer when booking a session. This retainer will reserve your date and be credited towards your session. In case of a cancellation, the retainer will not be returned, but you will be able to reschedule your session. A cancellation means a lost opportunity for me to work with other clients who value photography as a way of capturing forever what's most dear to them.
Whenever possible, I like to keep things simple, for myself, and for my clients. I don't want to exclude images from your gallery that I feel tell the story of your family's time together, and I certainly don't want to add to your to-do list. With both Family and Newborn Sessions, you will receive ALL the best images from your shoot! I deliver high-resolution, hand-edited digital files which are carefully chosen by me. These digital files are yours to keep forever. Yours to print and share however you like. If you would like an album, canvases or prints made, I'm more than happy to provide that service.
Family Session ~ $575* (includes 1.5 hour session, 30+ hand-edited, high-resolution files, and one 8x12 professional print). Family Sessions take place at your home or an agreed upon location. With a Family Session you will receive a few posed images with the remainder of the images being mostly Lifestyle and candid moments. My hope is to capture your family in an authentic way and show you *There is a $100 charge per additional family for extended family sessions.
Newborn Session ~ $575 (includes session, 30+ hand-edited, high-resolution files, and one 8x12 professional print). I take a Lifestyle approach to photographing newborns. Your newborn can be sleeping, nursing or wide awake. My goal is to capture the first precious few weeks when you bring your baby home. Newborn sessions take place in-home and at your baby's pace.
Weekday Mini Session ~ $350 (includes 45 minutes session and 8 hand-edited, high-resolution digitals). Mini Session offerings are a good fit if you are looking for more posed images or that perfect shot for your holiday card. This type of session will not be offered as a newborn mini session and must take place during the week.
Senior Session ~ $400 (includes 1.5 hour session, 15 hand-edited, high-resolution digitals, and one 8x12 professional print). These sessions capture your high school senior with images as unique as your child.
Events ~ $200/hour (Includes hand-edited, high-resolution digitals carefully chosen by me). Anything from your child's 1st birthday party to grandpa's 85th! Also booking, baptisms, communions, small weddings and bar mitzvahs.
NOTE: Payment is due day of session in the form of either cash or check. Please make checks payable to Patty Connelly Photography.
