PORTRAIT SESSIONS Ranging from 95-350. 

What does a session fee include? Includes 30 minute consultation, quote, 1-2 hour shooting time and professional editing/artwork.  Session fees vary depending on type, location scouting,  time and locations involved.  Due the day of the session or upon scheduling your appointment.  Sitting fee for the session is a separate fee.

We offer competitive pricing of packages with a wide variety of images, sizes and the latest products for your personal displays.  Packages include editing/artwork, design appointment, retouching, album planning, finished products.  The behind the scene expenses of producing quality images are many including: professional dues, insurance, equipment for shooting and editing, storage of images, backdrops and props, continuing education and time.  We share our pricing at your consultation.

Are images copyrighted? Our images are copyright protected.  

Do you allow phones in the shooting area?  We do not allow phones in our studios, they are very distracting.   I am hired as your photographer and the poses I take are not to be copied on phones while we are doing the session.  Children get very confused if you are trying to talk when I am.  You are welcome to use phones when we are finished.  A picture with the photographer is always welcomed.

Do you sell digital images?  We only sell digital images to business professional clients needing them for web/advertising.  We do give some low res. images ordered wall portrait images for sharing socially and phones.  We do post sneak peeks of our favs on social media for friends and family to enjoy.

We believe in the power of prints and are very passionate about them.  Quality portraits stand the test of time.  Portraits are meant to display and enjoy daily.  Finished products are truly pieces of art work of your family.  We believe in our sessions and beautiful displays.

Do you post sneak peeks? We know you are excited and yes, we post sneak peeks of our favs on Facebook!  Be sure to like our Photography by Melinda pages on Facebook and Instagram to share your images and be part of our referral plan.

When are images ready to view? Images are ready to view within 2 weeks.  Ordering appointments are in person, not online.  Exceptions are made when family members are out of town.  Please allow 1-2 hours for your viewing appointment.  It is really hard to decide with so many great choices.  

How do I pay? After your order you may pay in full with check, cash or credit card.  We require 1/2 down to start your order. We offer payment plans on large order amounts.  Finished portrait orders are ready within 2-4 weeks.  When special framing is involved it may take longer.

Can kids come to ordering appointments? We have a comfortable ordering area. Yes, we have snacks and drinks available.  Children are welcome and most school age children bring a book, homework or special toy.

How far is your parking area and will you help me? We have a large parking area.  We always help our clients bring in items from their car for the session.  We also happily carry your finished order to your car and send you off with a hug of thanks.

Can I view and add a lovely review online?  Yes we are on Google Reviews and Facebook.  After you work with us please give us a review on Google and Facebook.  We look forward to and appreciate seeing your wonderful comments.

How often should you be photographed?  As often as you can!  Life flies by. Things happen.  Children change weekly and adults change, too.  Your story is very important to all who know and love you.
