Portrait sessions

Portrait session fee's start at $250 (varies by type of photoshoot) and includes a pre-session consultation to go over what your expectations are for the artwork you want to create and how you would like to display and enjoy it in your home, a photo session designed just for you, and a private in person gallery reveal and ordering session. 

Products & Digital images are NOT included. 

Only Images and products you love are purchased during your in-person gallery reveal and ordering session through our A LA Carte Menu or through any of our pre-designed collections. There is no minimum order. Since clients only buy what they love, investments range from family to family, typically you can expect to spend anywhere from a couple hundred to a couple thousand.

FAQs

COVERAGE & TRAVEL:

What is your pricing?  Pricing depends on what kind of session you are looking for. Wedding packages start at $2700 and Most portrait sessions start at $250. Investments in products vary from family to family as they only buy what they love. You can except to spend anywhere from a couple hundred to several thousand on products. All products are 100% satisfaction granted and meant to last a lifetime! Shoot me an email, I would love to chat with you about a session!

Do you work with a second photographer? For weddings, a second shooter is always included. Covering a wedding day is a lot of work and theres always a lot going on. I think it's really important to have two sets of eyes to capture your day so that nothing is missed. You can have one photographer with the bride and one with the groom throughout the morning when your getting ready. You can have a photographer taking the posed shots and then another keeping an eye out for the candid moments. During the ceremony one will be on the couple and the other can be on the family. These are the types moments and emotions we don't want to miss! 

Where do you live and how far do you travel? I currently live in North Seattle, Ballard, area. I am more than willing to travel anywhere in the world. I love to travel! I am often visiting spokane and San Francisco as I have family there and sometimes have available sessions during my visit.  

There is a travel fee for some sessions and some sessions include a certain distance included in the pricing so shoot me an email and lets chat about it! 

We want to hike a mountain for our session, can we do that?  Yes we can do that, but that would be considered one of the destination packages, which has travel built into the pricing.

What kinds of sessions do you offer?  I specialize in Weddings, engagements, wedding videography, but I am available for almost anything else you might have in mind. Seniors, Family, In-home newborn sessions, Maternity...Just send me a message and we'll chat! 

BEFORE A SESSION:

What if i'm not good in front of the camera? Relax, you will do fine. I promise. It's fun, its about memories, not perfection. I will talk you through the whole thing, we're in this together, and its gonna be good. 

How do I book a session? Just fill out the contact page on my site or if you'd rather just send me an email you can do that too at stasoa@gmail.com. Just let me know what kind of photo session you would like and when. Then we can chat out all the fun details and set up your session! 

What happens when I schedule a photography session? We will start with a pre-consultation either in person or on the phone to get an idea of what your expectations are for your session and how you would like to display and enjoy the works of art that we will create together, I will help you with ideas for outfits, and talk about where the location of the shoot should be so we can plan for your story. From there we will have the photoshoot and afterword set a date 1-2 weeks after for the reveal and ordering session, where I will show you your gorgeous images and go over the products if offer to display them! You will order your products and they will arrive at your home roughly 2-4 weeks after ordering.

What should I wear? What makes you look in the mirror and take a double take...wear that. Don't be afraid of texture, layers, and fabrics that move. Coordinate & compliment each other, try to stay in the same color pallet. If we are doing your shoot out in nature, think about the colors there and try to match or compliment them. Contrary to what most believe, do not match and wear the exact same thing. Having variety is better but you can wear similar colors. Try to avoid a lot black, it tends to look like a black hole in photos. I love helping you pick out your outfits so feel free to txt or email me photos of options! Or just brings lot of options on the day of and ill help put together an outfit! 

Where does the session take place?  We will figure that out together. I like to get to know my clients and figure out what is unique about them and what would be the best location to fit your personality and to tell your story. 

How long is a session? Session times very. Anywhere from 30 mins- 2 hours depending on what your looking for. I am always happy to customize a package to fit your needs as well. If its a wedding its up to 10 hours.

How many people are included in a session?  Depends on the session, but we can figure out what you need together, send me an email. 

IMAGES & DELIVERY:

How much editing do you do to my images? My eyes will be on each and every photo. You get only the best. I will touch up skin, make minor edits, and enhance for an artistic flair. Then I prepare those for your reveal and ordering session.

When will I get to see images? We will set a date and time for your reveal and ordering session 1-2 weeks after your photo session.

Do we get digital files? You can certainly purchase the digital files at your ordering session, but my main goal is the products and to get you works of art on your walls to enjoy every day. 

STYLE:

How would you describe your style of photography? I love to shoot with natural light. Not because I don't know how to use strobe lights but because I believe for this type of work it makes it feel more natural and authentic.  If you have a dark reception at a wedding I will bring some strobes, but I tend to lean towards using natural light whenever I can! When it comes to editing after the shoot I like to stick to the original colors and just making them pop. 

Do you help with posing? I love to help with posing. I think it's important to help you get into a position that will look good for photos, but then from there I allow you to get comfortable in that pose and capture your natural emotions. 

Why should you trust me with taking your photos? Not only do I like to offer a 100% satisfaction guaranteed, I also have a commercial photography degree, so I am not just self taught. I graduated from one of the top photography programs and they taught me everything I know today about lighting and photography. I also like to think that I have a leg up because I also took many art classes in college before I started the photography program. Learning about color, composition, and light really ended up help me with my photography. 

Can we send you a "shot list"? Absolutely! 

Can I make you a Pinterest board? Yes! I love having a Pinterest board to refer to during shoots when we run out of ideas! 

BUSINESS & PAYMENTS:

What kind of gear do you shoot with? Only the best! I have a Canon 5D mark 3. 

How long have you been a photographer?  All my life! But I didn't realize I could pursue it as a career until 4 years ago. 

What are my options for payment? Cash, Check, Venmo, Credit card via Square. 

What is your payment schedule? Half of your package price is due upon signing of the contract to reserve your date and the other half is due on your wedding day. Other sessions fees are due during the pre-session consult when you book your session date. 

If I have to cancel my session or change date, will I get my money back? Your 50% retainer for weddings is non-refundable, but it is transferable to a new date up through the following calendar year.
