Newborn Sessions

Having a baby is such a unique experience every single time. I should know, I have had five of them! My experience with newborns personally and professionally puts you and your newborn in capable, calm, and patient hands. There are several packages to suit your individual family.

After booking an approximate date, please call as soon as you are home from the hospital, when baby is about 3-days old, to finalize the session time. Newborn sessions are for babies 5-10 days old.

Newborn and Family Small $300

We spend a lot of time during these sessions at your home changing, nursing, feeding, burping, rocking, screaming, soothing, so while they last 3 hours the actual photography time totals an hour. The package includes the 3-4 hour session with 5 favorite images as digital negatives.

Newborn and Family Regular $500

The same loving atmosphere with as much time as it takes to capture the images we need as the small package, but all images individually edited as digital negatives on a commemorative DVD.

Maternity + Newborn and Family $800

2 sessions for the price of 1 with all images individually edited as digital negatives on a commemorative DVD. A 1-hour maternity session designed to make you feel beautiful, as well as a newborn-only session after the birth.

Maternity + Birth + Newborn $1000

This package includes the Maternity + Newborn as well as my being on hand during the birth at the hospital, center, or your home to capture the arrival, day or night! All images from all 3 sessions included, individually edited as digital negatives on a commemorative DVD.

Wedding Packages

Design a custom package to fit any party and any budget

updated Jan 2011

It’s not my job to tell you what you really need or want. You’re the client, you tell me what is most important to you. Stop making sacrifices or trying to compare packages with different hours and products, just custom build your own! Choose the amount of time you need, and the products that you value. No stuck-up wrap you in mystique “I am an artiste” facade going on here. If you want professional, romantic, gallery-quality weddings photos and albums with pricing for real people, look no further. Sorry, you do need to look down, actually; might take a little scrolling…there you go.

Time

All weddings are photographed by me personally and at least 1 other photographer. Weddings are booked at $200/hr, 2-hr minimum with discounts the more hours purchased, includes travel and Photoshop magic. No prints or products included, this is for shoot time only! Choose how many hours you need, then add on products to custom build your own wedding package!


2-hour Portrait Session $200

Otherwise called engagement, bridal, or after the wedding madness couple session. My favorites are engagement photos for the invitations or a couple session a few days after the wedding where we can be creative without worrying about getting the dress dirty. Also good for engagement or bridal portraits to be displayed at the reception. Plus a great option to great professional wedding portraits for a bargain price if Uncle Bob with a fancy camera is doing (ruining) your wedding-day photos, you can still have romantic gallery quality images to display for a lot less money!


2-hr Basic Wedding $400

Perfect for small ceremonies, elopements, or reception only coverage


4-hr Simple Wedding $750

Church ceremony with cake and punch reception? Expensive venue serious about kicking you out when your time is up? No sit-down dinner, no dancing, no open bar? This should cover you!


5-hr Standard Wedding $900

The most popular package, covers most ceremony+reception weddings.


6-hr Full-Service Wedding $1050

Suitable for most ceremony+reception especially those at different locations requiring driving time, large wedding parties, or late nights.


7-hr Deluxe Wedding $1250

Great for long wedding ceremonies with party animal receptions. Also suitable for 2-day split coverage with ceremony on one day and reception on another.


8-hr Extended Wedding $1400

All-day or 2-day festivities are no problem. Pre-party, rehearsal dinner, getting ready, long ceremony, party wagon, receptions into the wee hours, or whatever else you can dream up, it’s your day!

Add-on Hours $100/hr

I’m already there, so you get a discount if your party lasts longer than scheduled and they still don’t kick you out. Accrues $50 every 30 minutes extra; and yes, I am going to bill you for it before delivering any products!


Second photographer $50/hr

I also work as a second for any photographer you’ve hired. If you like what you see, consider adding me to your existing wedding plans. Perfect for those using Uncle Bob with a fancy camera and want some good back up, or if your pro doesn’t include a back up photographer (did you ask him about that?) I provide all my unretouched images to the primary photographer.

Products

Add on these products to your hourly package to custom build your own wedding package! It’s not my job to tell you what you want, so you build your own. Just add up the amounts from hours and products to get your total. I’ll do the Texas sales tax math for you, but you can do your own if you’re nerdy at 8.25% (hint: multiply your total by 1.0825 for your actual total!)


Digital Negatives $500

The most popular product, includes a commemorative DVD and downloadable zip file with all photos from the wedding (okay, I take out the bad ones first), typically 300-1000 of course depending on how long I’m there. All images are individually edited with up to 5 images enhanced by request (aka Photoshop plastic surgery). Written copyright release upon request if the store clerk gives you problems. Order online, just check the box that you have permission to print them because you do, because you paid for it.


Hardbound Album $200

10×10 10-page/20-layout hard cover album

Second on the list because it’s the second most popular product. I know you can print your own photos and now even albums from your favorite photo processor, so I focus instead on custom designing beautiful layouts with traditional or modern scrapbook graphics to express your personality and relive your day. $100 for each additional album.

Montages and Scrapbook Layouts

8×10 or 11×14 custom photo montage $100

Montages are several of your best photos blended into a modern image. 1 print and digital negative.

12×12 or 8.5×11 custom digital scrapbook page $50

A single keepsake layout you can hang, place in your own scrapbook, or include in an album you print yourself. 1 print and digital negative.

These layouts can be created from images taken by Pal Photo Art or another photographer with copyright released photos.

Printed Invitations

Flat or folded postcard invitations with photos and custom-designed graphics and text. A modern replacement to the traditional engraver’s invitation. Many sizes and options to choose from. Isn’t that nice of me making it just a little easier with one less vendor to deal with for all your photo and printing needs? Invitations also available using other photos with copyright release.

See A La Carte list below for pricing, or call for custom quote. Don’t worry, I’m cheap.

Musical Slide Show DVD $350

A video montage of your best photos from all our sessions together set to music with custom text. Like a scrapbook on TV! I also work with your videographer by providing screen-quality photos to create video and still photo slide shows.

Retainer

To firmly book your date, please email info@palphotoart.com or use the Contact form to inquire about availability. Once your date has been tentatively booked, a retainer of $100 is due to firmly book the date and applies to your total. If no retainer is received, Pal Photo Art is free to book that date for another client. You wouldn’t want that to happen!

Payment

Payment is easy because I want to be as convenient as possible for you to give me money…er…I mean for good customer service.

Cash in an envelope is always welcome at in-person meetings. Please be sure to request an email receipt to create a money trail.

Booking a session is pretty easy because if I made it hard, no one would book. That’s kind of opposite to the goal of this web site.

1. Send an email using the Contact Me page (info@palphotoart.com) and find out if the date you want is available, or what my availability is if your date is flexible. See how easy that is?

2. For large events like weddings, corporate parties, etc, a non-refundable $50 retainer is required to firmly book your date. If there is an inquiry for a shoot on your date and you have paid your retainer, I will turn it down. If you have tentatively booked and no retainer paid, I will contact you to confirm your continued interest in that date before booking it with another client. So in short, for large events, no retainer = tentative booking. Retainer = solid booking.

3. Sitting fees and 50% of event fees are due at the time of the session. Print and product fees, remaining event fees, are due after the online gallery is posted and before any orders are taken.

4. To make any payment, checks (personal or cashier), cash, or PayPal (bank or credit card +3% fee) are all good. PayPal is to info@palphotoart.com, cash usually (okay, always) comes in an envelope handed off in person, and email info@palphotoart.com for check payee and mailing information.

Now that wasn’t all about booking a session, some of it was about paying for a session, but as you can see I have very few rules in life as well as in photography. I am looking forward to working with you!
