Frequently Asked Questions?
Our "studio" is entirely mobile so we expect to be on the road, therefore we do not charge for travel. We do have to cover our expenses so if you are outside of our regular area in Northern California, we ask that you arrange for another family or plan to make a minimum purchase which we will discuss. Our normal session fee (ranch call) is $95. Prices vary for different services so please refer to the category tabs or feel free to contact us and let us know what you're interested in and we will let you know all about our prices.
Wall Portraits begin at 11" x 14" and go up to 40" x 50", with a wide variety of sizes in between. We project your previews on the wall so you can see exactly what they will look like enlarged. We help you with the size selection based on the number of subjects in the portrait, their head sizes relative to the space in the composition, and the size of the wall where it's to be displayed. We also make gift and album sizes available; 5x7s and 8x10s range in price from $52. to $98. We always make special considerations for quantity purchases. Please see Seniors for information on wallet sizes.
Travel to other states is not a problem at all. If we have to fly, we ask that you either cover our travel and accommodations, or you provide enough families to ensure adequate compensation to cover expenses. Please call us to discuss the options.
This really is the #1 question! And for good reason. Your clothing should compliment you, your environment in the portrait and the room in which the image will be displayed. That sounds like a tall order, but it's not that difficult.
We have found that everyone has their own portrait needs so we tend to design custom packages for each family. We do have "packages" or discount prices for high school seniors and barn groups.
To take advantage of a barn group discount, we ask for a minimum of 5 families or individuals to participate. The ranch call is $125. which is divided among the customers. As an example of barn group prices, an 8x10 is $65. (regularly $98.) We can create packages based on the total number of families involved.
A lot of our business comes from referral and we definitely reward for it. If we photograph both families on the same portrait session, you can split the session fee. We are also happy to offer complimentary portraits or a free frame in appreciation of a referral. Call, and we'll talk about it!
