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!"
I like to keep things simple, for myself, and for my clients. I don't exclude images from your gallery that I feel tell the story of your family's time together, and I don't want to add to your to-do list. With my Family, Newborn and Let's Be Real Sessions, you will receive ALL the best images from your shoot! I will 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 as you like.
Family Session ~ $650*
Sessions take place at your home or at an agreed upon location. With a Family Session you will receive both posed and lifestyle images. *There is a *100 charge per additional family for extended family sessions.
Weekday Mini Session ~ $400
Sessions take place at your home or at an agreed upon location. A good fit if you are looking for more posed images or that perfect family shot for your holiday card.
Fresh 48 ~ $500
Sessions take place within the first 48 hours of your newborn's birth. Either in the hospital or at home. Immediate family members only please - it get's crowded in hospital rooms. ;-) My goal is to document those beautiful first days being a new parent and to preserve the tiniest details of your newborn's first hours.
Newborn Session ~ $700
I take a Lifestyle approach to photographing newborns. Your newborn can be sleeping, nursing or wide awake. I want to capture the first precious few weeks when you bring your baby home. Happy (and hoping) to include siblings, mom and dad and the dog, if you have one. Newborn sessions take place in-home and at your baby's pace.
Senior Session: ~ $500
We will capture your high school senior with images as unique as your child.
Let's Be Real Session ~ $1000
Exactly what it sounds like. I come to your house. We hangout and I photograph what a morning or an afternoon in your life looks like. I'm there for about 3 hours. I know what you're thinking; "3hours? YIKES!" No worries, since you are just doing your thing, no one's posing, I won't ask you to look at the camera or to wear a particular outfit. All I'll ask is for you to allow me to capture your family in their happy place (and if there's a less than happy moment, I'll be sure to document that too. Because, let's be real). Celebrate and document your time together in a unique and honest way. These types of images are the ones you will pull out and look at over and over again.
Events ~ $200/hour
Happy to photograph anything from your child's 1st birthday party to grandpa's 85th! These sessions are photographed documentary style and do not include portraits. For baptisms, communions, and second weddings, please contact me for pricing. (Includes hand-edited, high-resolution digital files carefully chosen by me).
A $150 non-refundable deposit guarantees your session. The deposit is required upon booking to hold your spot. Deposit will be applied to your session fee. In the event you need to cancel, you will be able to reschedule. A cancellation means a lost opportunity for me to work with other clients who value photography as a way of capturing what's most dear to them.
Payment is due day of session in the form of either cash or check. Please make checks payable to Patty Connelly Photography.
- All images will be delivered to you through ShootProof online gallery service within 2-3 weeks from date of the session.
