All portrait sessions require a $250 deposit and a signed contract in order to book a date. The $250 is non-refundable, but is credited to the final purchase amount. In case of cancellation, the deposit is transferable to another date. For all sessions there will be a pre-consultation interview to go over the goals of the clients, attire and any other questions the client may have about the session. There will be a ordering session approximately 2-3 weeks after the session which we will schedule at the time of booking. Gift prints, art prints, digital images and gallery canvases are available for purchase. There is no minimum order. Á la carte pricing begins at $50. Discounted collections begin at $500. Most clients spend on average about a $1500 a session.
NEWBORN PORTRAIT SESSION
It is best to contact Scheid Studios when the client is still pregnant. We will tentatively book the client on their due date. Once the baby is born, the client should contact Scheid Studios to schedule the firm date for the portrait session. Since newborns are best photograph between 4-12 days old, the client should contact Scheid Studios as soon as they can after the birth.
Maternity portrait sessions are only available as an add-on to a booked newborn portrait session for an additional $150 deposit. $400 non-refundable deposit will be due at the time of booking for both the maternity and newborn portrait session ($150 will be credited to your maternity session order and $250 will be credited to your newborn session order). Maternity sessions will also include a visit from a personal stylist and a hair and makeup artist before the session. These are all complimentary services and are standard with all Scheid Studio portrait sessions (with one notable exception of newborn sessions). Maternity sessions are best held when the client is 27-32 weeks pregnant.
FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION
$250 is the base deposit for a portrait session for a group of five people or less. If more than five people, add an additional $25 per person to the deposit fee. After the deposit has been paid, Scheid Studios will arrange for a pre-consultation meeting to help plan the perfect portrait session. We will discuss details of time, location, style, and what type of products the client is looking for. Scheid Studios will then arrange for a personal stylist to visit the client to look over outfit options.* The stylist visit will generally take place about a week before the scheduled session date. Scheid Studios will also arrange for a hair and makeup artist to come to the client’s location before the session to make sure they look their best. Each session generally lasts one hour to one and a half hours depending on the size of the family and children’s age.
*Family reunion portrait sessions does not include a personal stylist or hair and makeup services. A family reunion portrait session is defined as more than one household being photographed.
HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PORTRAIT SESSION
Once the $250 deposit has been paid and the online questionnaire has been filled out by the high school senior, Scheid Studios will arrange for a pre-consultation to help plan their portrait session. Details of time, locations, style, and what type of products the client is looking for will be discussed. There is no limit to outfits or locations (just remember the more outfits and locations, the less time there will be for shooting). Scheid Studios will then arrange for a personal stylist to visit the high school senior to look over their outfits. The stylist visit will generally take place about a week before the scheduled session date. Scheid Studios will also arrange for a hair and makeup artist to come to the senior’s location before the session to make sure they look their very best.
