Lifestyle Portrait Session

Lifestyle Portrait Sessions (with professional photographer, Jan, in Arlington, VA; Alexandria, VA and Washington, DC metro area)

$700 weekday, $750 weekend ($200 required for date retainer, balance due at shoot.  Includes $500 in print credit.)

A relaxed time tailored to capture your personality and relationships rather than a forced smile in an awkward pose.  The goals is to make you look like your best you! Sessions last from 1 to 2 hours at a favorite DC-metro location (includes “walking around” time between locations).   I’m happy to suggest locations if you don’t have one in mind, there are so many beautiful spots to choose from!

The Session Fee includes my time to shoot and process your images plus a $500 print credit.  (See Prints & Products for a price list of all the options for finished art.)  Generally between 30 and 40 proofs are provided.

Because the session appointments times are so limited, $200 non-refundable retainer is due at the time the session is scheduled, to reserve your date.  If the session is rescheduled by Jan (due to weather) the retainer will apply to the new date.  If you cancel the session, for any reason, the retainer will not be returned.

Within 1 week after the session, proofs will be posted in a password protected gallery for viewing and ordering.  The gallery will be posted for 2 weeks.  After 2 weeks the gallery will be archived and a $100 fee is due if you need to reactivate it for an additional week.

If you need help making your selections, I am happy to assist you by e-mail, phone or in person! I can help you decide how to best display and enjoy your images as art in your home.  Creating large wall portraits is the reason for the shoot, after all, and I want you to use and enjoy your pictures!

Completed orders are ready for pickup or shipping to you in approximately 4 to 6 weeks.

E-mail Jan today to schedule your portrait shoot today!
