As a business owner this is hands down the hardest part!!  I have made so many mistakes with my pricing, listening to photographers who preach pricing one way or another without actually thinking about what I would want as a client and what I enjoy as a photographer.

What I enjoy….

Taking pictures whilst hanging out and chatting to families

The moment when you know you have THE shot

Eating cake

What I don’t enjoy….

Ordering appointments with clients – I feel terrified they don’t like my pictures and they feel under pressure to buy something

Trying to guess which pictures the client will like so I include those in the gallery but not including so many that they feel overwhelmed

Trying to get people to make a decision in a small time frame


Transparent Pricing

Because of the reasons I have listed above I have decided to be completely transparent about my pricing so there are no hidden costs and no unwelcome surprises.

A photography session with me will cost £325

This is paid in 2 instalments

  1.  a booking fee of £75 to confirm your date and time which is due within 48 hours of booking
  2. the balance of £250 which is due before your photography session

The fee includes my time and talent on the day of the photoshoot, any phone calls, skype sessions or coffee meet-ups beforehand, a password protected online gallery containing pictures from your session (a guaranteed minimum of 50 pictures but usually nearer 100) for you to download.  You will receive a standard print release with your pictures and although I do offer a print service there is no obligation to use it.

So there we have it, plain and simple
