Happy New Year and thank you so much for being here!
Each new year I take time to evaluate my business and implement any changes I need to better the experience for my clients. I consider what worked well in the year prior, as well as set goals for the coming year. New for 2016, I am excited to share that Stephanie Kelley Photography will be making a change in pricing structure!
After reviewing my sales, close to 90% of my business for 2015 was digital images--USB and download sales. I realize that we are in a digital age and understand the value in archiving images--I too, want every image in my own family's picture gallery, which is why SKP is now making the move to all-inclusive! What this means for you is for one fee, you will receive your session and the edited digital files with print release, via download.
For Family sessions, you will have the option between two session types-- The Signature Session or The Simple Session. The differencesbetween the two session types are the length of the session, the location option and the number of digital files you will receive. The only option for travel sessions (locations which exceed 25 miles of Crystal Lake or Lifestyle sessions) or any Newborn sessions, is a complete Stephanie Kelley Photography Signature session. Newborn sessions can still be in-home Lifestyle sessions or Studio Sessions, but again, Newborn sessions can only be booked as Signature Sessions.
If in the past you were a client of mine who after paying the session fee, ordered the USB + proof package, the good news is, you can now have your session and all the digital files via download at a lesser cost! The all-inclusive Signature package comes with your digital files via download. If you would like to continue receiving the custom USB + proofs, then you can add that on to your package and the price ends up being the same as you paid in 2015.
If you were a client of mine who in the past has purchased a session fee and then ordered 10 digital files via download, you can still do that with a Simple Session! This type of session is restricted to Family sessions only, and the location and length of the shoot is less, but so is the cost... with those small changes, you will also save $125!
Finally, due to their popularity in 2015, I will be offering more mini session dates. These are 20 minute sessions booked back-to-back on a specific date. The cost is $250 and comes with 5 digital files. Dates for mini sessions have yet to be determined.
Please review the new pricing structure and if you think we are a match, AWESOME! I can't wait to work with you. If you think you need to find a photographer who better fits your style, personality or budget, while I will miss you, I completely understand. <3<3<3
To book a session you will need to contact me via the website. Your session date will only be held once your contract and $200 retainer are received.
That's about it!
Alright folks, I am officially booking 2016! Ready, set, contact me!
