Hi! It’s Lily again. Thanks for being part of Camera Mama!
In this 44 minute behind the scenes video of senior photo shoot, Rebecca gave some valuable tips that you won’t want to miss. I felt like I had two big takeaways: collaboration and imagination. A photography session is really about collaborating and bringing your photography and a client’s personality together. And if that means you talk about sushi because it makes your client light up inside, then you talk about sushi! This was a great insight into how to make a session fun for everyone.
In total, this shoot had 3 locations, 3 shirts, and 336 photos. What do you do next? How do you price a shoot like this?
At Nic’s shoot we did 3 locations, 3 shirts and I took 336 photos of him. Which is on the low side. I then culled down to the best images and ended up with about 60, which is right where I want to be. For those 60 I edit them in LightRoom. The next step is to help my client decide what they want to do with their photos and from there I make further edits in Photoshop like removing skin blemishes and whitening teeth. I have simplified my pricing and almost all of my non-wedding packages are $550. That includes the sitting fee plus a credit. The amount of the credit depends on the client. This particular client has hired me once before and has also referred a client to me so because of that she gets more of a credit. Her credit amount is $400.
