Elena Sand Photography

I am a natural light photographer in Alpharetta GA. I think the best photos are of people just being themselves. I don't like doing shots that are too posed - I want to capture who you are with my photography.

Here is what I do, and what I charge:

Portrait Session Fees
(Maternity, Senior Pics, Engagements, Kids, Family): 

All sessions are $100

What that hundred bucks includes:
The time at the shoot (time is money!). For most shoots, expect an hour or two.
Light editing (that takes time too!)
A CD with up to 30 photos, including some black and whites
A shared rights certificate (this gives you permission to print the photos at a print shop of your choosing)

Session fees cover up to 6 immediate family members. An additional $15 charge will be added for each individual above 6

Newborn Portraits

All sessions are $150

What that includes:
All the items mentioned above: time, editing, etc...
These sessions usually take a little longer - newborns operate on their own schedules!

Newborn sessions are a little more difficult to schedule - photos are usually best the first week of birth. Let's get it on the calendar as early as possible, but if baby decides not to come on his due date I'll work with you.

Mini Sessions

All sessions are $75
Available for kids and families, location restricted to Alpharetta and surrounding area.

What that includes:
Up to 45 minutes for the shoot
A CD with up to 15 photos
Light editing
Shared rights certificate

OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER:

Location:
I live in Alpharetta. Prices above are based on shooting in Alpharetta and the surrounding area (Roswell, Milton, Canton, Cumming). I can come to your home, but I love outdoors shots too! I can also meet you at a park, a field, or whatever location best fits what you are looking for. We'll discuss that when we plan your session. I am happy to travel outside the Alpharetta area, but additional charges may apply. If any other location expenses are necessary, such as parking fees, entrance fees, etc... the client will be responsible for paying them. 

Editing:
I don't do a lot of editing on my photos, but most will require some minor touching up. If you have something requiring extensive editing, like a tattoo or scar removal, there may be an additional charge. Be sure to bring it up before the photo shoot so we can plan for it.

Scheduling:
Photo shoots are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. Remember that outdoor shoots are always best early in the morning or late afternoon because that's when the light is best. 

Cancellation:
Unless it is pouring rain or we're under tornado watch, I won't cancel a shoot. But if a shoot does get cancelled due to extreme weather, I'll work with you to reschedule. If you need to cancel a shoot, you can do so up to 48 hours prior to the session. 

Payment:
I accept cash or check, due at the photo shoot. Sorry, I can't take credit cards!

Photo Processing and Delivery:
Please allow 2 to 3 weeks after the shoot for me to process your photos. I want to make sure they are just right before I send them to you.  

Referrals:
I need 'em!  If you refer a client who books a session with me, I'll give you $25 off your next shoot.

Prices:
Prices are subject to change at any time, but once your photo shoot is booked, your rate is locked.
