Portraits

Lansing portrait photographer (families, seniors, head shots)
Ask yourself this: why do you want to have your portraits taken? What’s the story that you want to tell? What feelings do you have at point in your life that you want to remember later? Let’s work together to create a custom session that can best reflect your personal story at this meaningful point in your life.allie-signoff

The Experience

Before the Session

My goal is to help you create artwork that can live in your home for years to come. If you’re hoping to download your files, throw a few on Facebook and then put them in a drawer somewhere never to be seen again, I’m just not the photographer for you, my dear.

To me, a photographer’s job isn’t done until she’s helped you do something with the photos. I’ll mail you my Portrait Art Style Guide catalog with ideas around what to wear, how to prepare, and how to style your home with your photos.

After the Session

About three weeks after your photo session, you’ll get to see and download your photos in your online gallery, and you’ll get a one day 15% off sale to buy any professional print products that you want for your home or for gifts.

You’ll also get access to my online wall gallery designer to visualize exactly what your photos will look like to scale on your own walls. I can even upload other personal photos for you if you want to put together a wall gallery with a mix of photos.

Pricing

Mini Session (30 Minutes): $350

Mini sessions are great for young families—toddlers and young children don’t often have the patience for much more than half an hour. I usually deliver 30 images in one general location with no outfit changes. This includes a few favorites in black and white.

  • 30 minute on-location photography session in the Greater Lansing area.

  • Free touch-ups on any print orders (all ordered images are edited in the Allie & Co. Photography style).

  • All high resolution digital downloads, available through an online gallery (online for at least 30 days).

High School Senior Photography Add-ons

Seniors may opt to add on the following options to complete a custom senior photography package (see Mini Session and Full Session details above for more information):

  • Additional coverage time: $350 per hour (available in half hour increments)
  • Studio yearbook headshot: $75
    • One pose in front of neutral gray backdrop.
    • Basic editing/blemish removal.
    • Digital download with rights to two full resolution images.

Newborn Photography Lifestyle/Baby Session: $500

Newborn photos take place in your home as a mix of lifestyle photos with your family and baby alone (wrapped on a white or gray rug). I no longer offer solo baby newborn sessions, because I believe deeply in capturing you as the baby’s parents with your new baby. I didn’t have photos take of myself with my daughters, and I regret it.

I recommend booking your session well in advance to reserve a date based around your expected due date (I will only take posed photos of baby in the first ten days), then we can shift the final session date around a bit if baby decides to make different plans.

  • Preparation instructions for a successful session.
  • One hour in home photography session (newborn sessions typically take place at 11:00 AM within two weeks of baby’s birth).
  • All high resolution digital downloads, available through an online gallery (online for at least 30 days).
  • Style Guide catalog with tips to prepare for your session and ideas to help you style your photos in your home.
  • One day 15% off sale to choose your favorite mix of photos for products. Ue my online gallery wall designer to view images scaled to your own walls so you know exactly what the images will look like.
  • Free touch-ups on any print orders (all ordered images are edited in the Allie & Co. Photography style).

FAQ

Q: Will you travel? Does this cost extra?
I live in East Lansing, Michigan, and I split my summers between East Lansing and Muskegon, Michigan. Sessions typically take place in these two areas (Muskegon beach sessions are based on availability).

Travel fees may apply beyond 100 miles for weddings or 30 miles for sessions, but there are exceptions (no fees for Traverse City or the Leelanau Peninsula while Allie is in those areas; travel barters are available).

Q: Do I pay sales tax on my session?
Per Michigan law, a 6% sales tax will be added to all session fees for Michigan clients. Product credit will not be charged sales tax since sales tax will be applied to the products at the time of purchase.

Prices are subject to change.
