Maybe better put, understanding what you pay for.
In today’s technology-driven-everything-at-your-fingertips world of search engines and tools for comparison shopping, I think it is safe to say we are all Smart Shoppers. I will even go out on a limb and say it is hard to get duped into paying too much for something. When was the last time you fell for that deal that was too good to be true? Something for nothing? A price that makes no economic sense?
10 cent Hamburgers* All Day! (*Bun and condiments not included, but required for purchase.)
The burger joint down the street would fail miserably if it tried to sell you a burger for a dime and then charge you an additional 74¢ for the bun, ketchup, mustard, pickle and some onions. Now if they ran a promotion such as buy one get one free or something along that lines, all would be good and well received.
For some reason, and I do not understand why, many portrait studios are coy about their prices. I elect for the straightforward pricing. No hidden costs, period.
So what do you get when you hire my studio for your potraits? This could be a long list. I love my profession and am very dedicated to it. You will look amazing. I promise.
I am also a social geek. I like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and all that good stuff. So do you? Cool. Post your pics from the session and have some fun with them. I do not charge for web versions of your pics. I also do not limit how many you can use – I may suggest picking a certain number of favs, but the choice is yours.
I have a crazy powerful set of computers and so many software programs I cannot help but play with photos. Yes you will benefit from this. I include Black and White versions, sepia and whatever else seems to be trending. Fun.
I enjoy a good movie and like making them too. How about a video slide show of your pics set to some cool tunes. You got it.
I like prints. Sure flipping through a million images on the iPad is fun. But what about the walls? I price my prints aggressively. Why? So you print some of them and show them off.
Albums and specialty items such as brag books and gallery wraps are all the rage. Or at least they should be. I have this awesome little item, comes in a set of 3 and will set you back around 50 bucks, called an accordion mini. Slickest thing on the planet and makes a great gift. Check them out here. (Miller’s you rock!)
How about this web site? (Gotta throw some props to my web guru for all the fantastic help – Thanks Joshua!) Like I stated before, I am committed to making sure you look your best. Check out some of the post pages such as What to Wear, Hey Baby and All About the Bride. I am going to be a posting fool. Everything from fashion trends to makeup, yes I am giving out… tips. Well, maybe more like I am having people guest post. Where are my resources? How can you trust my tips? Read the posts and check out the credit lines.
So much more than just another pretty picture. Full service commitment to you.
Shoot me an email and let’s take some pics!
