Portrait Creation Fee - $150

The portrait creation fee covers 1-2 hours for up to five people ($25 for each additional person) at your home or location of your choice. The creation fee covers the time and talent of capturing your images, all post processing of your images, and an online ordering gallery of approximately 40-50 images. Each session includes a sneak peek* that is posted on our blog following your session.

All prints and products are sold separately.

The creation fee is due within 3 days of booking your session and is required to hold your session date.

Newborn Creation Fee - $300

The newborn creation fee covers up to 3 hours at your home or location of your choice as well as everything listed in the portrait creation fee section. I prefer to photograph newborns within the first 10 days of life. If you book your newborn session by your 32nd week of pregnancy, you will receive your choice of 25 custom baby announcements or a complimentary maternity session.

Portrait Ordering:

Following your portrait session you will schedule an in-person ordering appointment to be held 2-3 weeks after your session (maybe longer during peak season August-October). Our ordering appointments are held at our studio at 697 Higuera St, Suite B, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401.

Your portraits may be purchased in color and/or black and white. Most orders are ready within 4-6 weeks. Custom products (albums and canvas gallery wraps) may take longer. Full payment is due at time of ordering. Payment may be made in cash, check, or by credit card.

San Luis Obispo sales tax will be applied to all creation fees and print and product orders.

*A signed model release is required before receiving any watermarked digital images including blog sneak peeks.

We offer senior portrait photography throughout the central coast. We are not a traditional senior portrait studio. All of our sessions are shot on location in San Luis Obispo. This allows each senior to create a session that reflects their own individual style and allows your images to be one of a kind.

We are approved senior portrait photographers for San Luis Obispo High School, Mission College Prep and Arroyo Grande High School. Although, most schools in this area do not require you to go to a certain photographer for your yearbook photograph, even if your school does, you can still book a one of a kind customized portrait session with us.

College Grads: Our senior portrait sessions and pricing is also available to all college students. After 4 years of college, don't miss out on having an awesome portrait session as well as custom graduation cards. Many Cal Poly students love to have portraits taken at some of their favorite locations in SLO before they graduate.
