The session fee for most sessions is $250 for up to 5 people. Sessions generally last 1-2 hours and result in at least 30 artistically edited and retouched, color and black and white images, and your own password protected online viewing gallery. Life/Portrait sessions can take place outdoors (fields, formal gardens, urban spaces, someplace special to you) and/or in a light filled area of your home. Additional family members can be added for $25 each.
What is a session with Kelsey Gerhard Photography like?
Expect our session to be enjoyable and relaxed. We can explore the outdoors, or just stay home, be casual, and play. I usually take a mixture of candid and posed photographs in each session. I will likely place you in an amazing patch of light and give a little direction for some composed shots, then step back while you interact with each other to capture your emotion and connections. Kids should be rested, well fed, and allowed to explore their environment. Nothing is forced. Just be together as a family, love each other, and be yourselves. Great photographs will follow!
Do you sell digital files?
Absolutely! Digital packages begin at $600 and include all full resolution and web sized files, a complete set of 3×5 proof prints, and an assortment of larger lustre prints.
How much do prints/packages cost?
When booking a session the client agrees to purchase one of three packages. Print packages start at $400. Digital/print packages start at $600. After a package has been purchased, a la carte prints may be purchased separately, with a la carte print prices starting at $25 for a 5×7. Your images are printed at the highest quality professional photo lab (that does not cater to the public). 16×20 and larger prints are mounted on rigid 2mm styrene, lustre coated for protection, and ready for framing. High quality gallery wrapped canvases, and other specialty items are also available.
Do you shoot film?
I have all kinds of film cameras (from a Polaroid SX-70 to a 4×5 Calumet and everything in between), and I do shoot film, but not currently for clients.
