Lifestyle Portrait Session


$700 weekday, $750 weekend

A $200 required for date retainer, balance due at shoot.

Includes $500 in print & product credit. If you are a returning client, or referred to me, you'll have an additional $50 in print & product credit.

A relaxed time tailored for photos to capture your personality and relationships rather than a forced smile in an awkward pose. The goals is to make you look like your best you! Sessions last from 1 to 2 hours at a favorite Washington DC-metro location (includes "walking around" time between locations). I’m happy to suggest locations in Virginia, DC and Maryland, if you don’t have one in mind, there are so many beautiful spots to choose from!

The Session Fee includes my time to photograph and process your images plus a $500 print and product credit to spend as you choose on your pictures. (See Prints & Products for a list of all the options for finished art.) Generally between 40 and 50 proofs are provided from your photo session.

Because the portrait session appointments times are so limited, $200 non-refundable retainer is due at the time the session is scheduled, to reserve your date. If the session is rescheduled by the photographer, Jan, (due to weather) the retainer will apply to the new date. If you cancel the session, for any reason, the retainer will not be returned.

Within 1 week after the session, proofs will be posted in a password protected gallery for viewing and ordering. You may share the password with friends and family if you'd like. The gallery will be posted for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks the gallery will be archived and a $25 fee is due if you need to reactivate it for an additional week.

If you need help making your selections, I am happy to assist you by e-mail, phone or in person! I can help you decide how to best display and enjoy your images as art in your home. I also offer in-home ordering sessions. Creating large wall portraits or an album is the reason for the photo shoot, after all, and I want you to use and enjoy your pictures, now and for years to come!

Completed photography orders are ready for pickup or shipping to you in approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
