Portrait Investment

A General Portrait Session can be used for family portraits, children’s portraits, bridal, engagement, maternity or newborn portrait sessions. Portrait sessions are done outdoor or, in the case of maternity or newborn portraits, in your home if you want more privacy.

Portrait sessions generally last between 1  to 2 hours (sometimes more with newborn babies). You can pick the location, or we can decide on a location together at your consultation.

A $175 sitting fee is required to book your portrait session date and initial consultation. A $150 print purchase is also required. The sitting fee covers your photography session only. A 50% deposit for your print purchase is due when you place your print order.

I offer a variety of print sizes, wall portrait options, and print products such as announcements, greeting cards, collages, coffee table books and albums. Although I recommend you purchase your prints from me or a reputable photo lab, online proofing and web ready digital downloads are included in every portrait package.

First Year Package

Children are my favorite people to photograph! My own children were the inspiration behind professionally pursuing photography. As a mom, I wanted to be sure I had more than just memories of my children’s years; I wanted something tangible, crisp and clear.

Children grow up so fast, and too often we are left wondering where the years went. At times, it’s hard to even imagine my children as newborn babies. That’s why the First Year Package is one of my favorite packages for children’s portraits. It allows me to photograph your child’s first year, starting from their birth, leaving you with professionally documented portraits of pivotal moments in your child’s first year of life.

First Year Packages for children’s portraits consist of four portrait sessions taken at 0-2 weeks, 6 months, 9 months and 12 months, with a complimentary birthday cake for your child’s 12 month photo session. Portrait sessions usually last between 1  to 2 hours and are done at the location of your choice (with the exception of the newborn portrait session, which can be done while still in the hospital, or at your home). Extra time may be needed for newborn portrait sessions as your child will still be adjusting to his or her new surroundings.

First Year packages require a $375 sitting fee with a $150 print purchase. The print purchase can be split between all four sessions.

Your children’s portraits will make great wall art for you and your loved ones to cherish for years to come. I offer many options for displaying your children’s portraits on your wall, as well as coffee table books, photo albums, mounted enlargements, announcements and greeting cards. Although it is recommended you purchase prints from me, or a reputable photo lab, all First Year packages come with online proofing and web ready digital downloads.

High School Seniors

Your senior portraits should be as unique as you are. As with other portrait sessions, a consultation is required to get to know you and your parents, and discuss what will make your senior portraits unique and special. Do you play sports or music? Bring your instrument or sports equipment and uniform. Gotta have a photo with your first car? That’s welcome too. Want your best friend in the photo? Feel free to bring them along.

Senior Portrait Sessions are taken at the location of your choice and typically last two hours (sometimes more depending on locations and wardrobe changes). Senior Portrait Packages start from $350 and includes a $150 print credit. Prints can be purchased in discounted packages or individually to suit your needs.

Senior Portrait Sessions are meant to complement your traditional cap and gown portraits. I currently do not offer cap and gown portraits unless you bring your own cap and gown.

Tell your friends about SBJamesPhotography. When your friends book a portrait session with me, you’ll get a $25 print credit to add to your own portrait package. Use this to purchase more prints or print products such as custom made announcements, proof books, coffee table books and accordion books to share with your friends and family.
