questions & answers

what is the starting price for Photography packages?

Prices start at $249 plus tax for head-shots and $1295 plus tax for seniors and other similar packages. There is a $99 additional charge for families or groups larger than 5. Please call for full pricing quotes. All prices INCLUDE your edited, digital images.

Great! How do i get started?

Each photo session begins with a brief phone consultation. This allows your photographer to get a vision of your shoot. It is during this conversation that we will select a date, time, available venues and discuss wardrobe ideas, etc..

can i take my own images?

During the photography session (the shoot) cell phone use and cell phone photography strictly prohibited. No Exceptions. Cell phone usage is very distracting to the photographers work and often to the subject(s) being imaged. If necessary, please step away to accept emergency calls. Otherwise- please keep cell phones dark, silent and out of sight.

What type of photgraphy do you offer?

I shoot primarily natural-lighting, outdoor photography. Front Porch can offer a number of beautiful and exclusive outdoor venues for my clients in the Austin. If you request a new and unfamiliar venue for your location shoot – there is an additional $149 charge for unfamiliar venues by the photographer. The photographer must be able to preview the suggested site before the shoot. All venues must be within 25 miles of the Austin area.

what if i want to combine photo shoots?

In most cases, I discourage combined shoots. Please see pricing and logistics for more details. Please do not request additional shoots on location. We can coordinate your objectives during our phone consultation.

What about rain?

Your photographer will closely work with you regarding the weather. If we arrive at a shoot and the weather changes, and a rescheduled date becomes necessary while on location – there will be a $75 charge for the subsequent session. This is rare and I am VERY reasonable and fair-minded. Unfortunately, the trade-off for the immense beauty of outdoor, natural-lighting photography, is that we must all deal with mother nature.
