Mini Sessions

Mini sessions are my most popular session. They are 20 minutes long, fast-paced, and aimed at creating 25-50 images to choose from for purchase. They combine traditional portraits with a lot of movement, silly interactions, and games. A mini session is a particularly good session length for families with young children, and is open to couples, maternity, and headshots/branding sessions as well. I hold a mini session day at least once each month. If the day and time doesn't work out for you, I also offer to start a new session day with at least two families on board. I've started a Facebook group called Render Client Connect where you can connect with other Render families and start a new session day.


Session Fee: $75

Your session’s day and time are secured when your session fee is paid and portrait agreement is signed. Two weeks after your session, you’ll receive an email with a link to a preview gallery and you’ll have the chance to mark your favorites for purchase. From there, I give your favorites a little extra editing love – removing blemishes and background distractions, smoothing skin, etc. Then I republish the gallery with the final versions of your favorite images and I turn on the gallery’s shopping cart function.

Digital Collections Starting At $350

Digital files are a part of every purchase with Render Photography – they allow you to print photos at the lab of your choice and to keep a digital backup of all your memories. Digital collections start at $350 for 10 images and you can add onto your collection of 10 at $50/set of 5 images. Add onto a collection of 50 images at $25/set of 5.

Average Client Total $525

Any images purchased in digital form can also be purchased as a printed art piece – and getting those photos off of your hard drive and into the world is really what it’s all about! Your gallery offers a wide variety of choices including framable photographic prints, canvases, and custom-designed albums as well as wall art printed on metal, wood, or acrylic.

Most clients spend about $450 between digital and print products for an average investment of $525 total, before sales tax.  Clients can save on album and wall art purchases when they choose to purchase in advance – you’ll see these options appear on your booking invoice.

My favorite art piece that I offer is the self-designed portrait album. New this year is album design software inside of your online gallery — the drag-and-drop layout builder is easy to use and allows you to preview all of your choices from cover design, cover material, layout, and page options. This new hands-off process allows me to offer high quality portrait albums at a fraction of the cost and I’m so excited that my clients get to take advantage of that! Starting prices:

8×8 – $300 || 10×10 – $400 || 12×12 – $500
