Senior- ($400)-full session

Included-

Outdoor with a variety of locations.  Indoor headshots only done in the studio if needed (some schools have requirements for yearbook photos indoors so check with your school prior).  I do find outdoors allows more of the seniors personality to shine so majority of session is done in different outdoor locations unless there is a required indoor yearbook photo.

I offer limited senior sessions since I like to keep them unique and not like everyone else's.  Most sessions are done between May-August.  I will do 2 fall seniors (sept) only for 2016 since I am so full with families during this time of the year and seniors often have activities so please plan early if you want a spot.

THE BABY PLAN- *email me or talk to me at your session to sign up.  This is a special for all of those that allow me to capture those special milestones.  I am not a fan of making people commit or pay for the entire year upfront.  Instead I want to offer a special to you for allowing me to be a part of those special times.  If you have me photograph the major milestones- newborn, 3, 6, and 9 month then the 1 year session is half price on the individual session.  You must have had all 5 milestone sessions or you will not receive the discount. If you are doing a family session or sibling session it is not half price (sorry no exceptions).  Contact me for the details prior.   

*Baby plan members get priority booking.  I open up my schedule for the first 2-3 days to baby plan members first before opening the schedule to everyone else.  Be sure to ask to join my mailing list! 

*You must sign up to receive the discount and do all 5 sessions.  Sign up needs to be done at either the newborn or 3 month sessions to qualify.  You will receive a card that I give you to bring to each session to mark off  each session.  Turn in your card at the one year session to get your discounted session.

*One year discounted session only applies to individual sessions (no family or sibling). Sorry no exceptions.  Discount is not applied and can not be used towards any other type of sessions.  

 

 

 

 

Additional information-

Any additional editing or changes need to be arranged with the photographer and may be charged a few of $5 per picture.

All cd’s are to be picked up here at the studio.  Cd’s will be mailed to people who live outside of the DSM area or more than 35 min away at an additional fee of $5.  Arrangements need to be made at the time of the shoot with the photographer.

Any on location shoots outside of Des Moines may have an additional charge.  Please contact me prior for information.

*Photographs may be used by the photographer on my blog, fb and for advertisement of Sarah McConnell Photography or displays.  If you do not want your previews posted you need to arrange this ahead of time with me. 

*Please allow 2-2.5 weeks from the date of your shoot for your online gallery to be available.  Photos are all edited one by one and I take a lot of pride and careful time with each photo.  This does take time so please be patient.  I want to make sure each gallery gets the attention it deserves. 

*Sorry but unedited images will not be put on the cd.  No exceptions.   Only images that appear online (minus the storyboards) will be on the cd.  The cd images are copyrighted to the photographer and are not to be reedited or changed without permission.
