I’m a mom first and foremost and I know that with the upcoming holidays everyone is a little financially tight. Especially us moms with children whose birthdays are near the holidays!
My son’s birthday is the day before Christmas Eve…which kind of stinks for him. I’ve been a stickler about making sure it is separate from Christmas. No gifts wrapped in holiday wrapping! I will rewrap it myself; I do not care.
I typically start purchasing his birthday gifts and Christmas presents in September/October so that it isn’t such a financial burden. BUT…this is obviously the time that I also book family portraits. So I know all too well the stress of trying to financially juggle it all.
Not to mention that is also prime Hurricane season and with inflation the cost of prepping before and cleaning up after a storm is pretty costly.
All of this is why I ultimately decided to offer payment plans for my sessions. I truly believe documenting your family memories and the senior year of high school is so important and meaningful.
The way my payment plans work is fully customizable to your needs. If you are booking a family session a $50 down payment is required the day before your session. This payment covers my time during your session and goes towards your total session fee. If you are booking the Senior Experience, a $50 deposit is required to schedule your date and a $100 down payment is required the day before your session. The deposit reserves my hair and make up artist for that day and the $100 payment covers my time and the hair and make up artist’s time during your session.
Depending on what your financial needs are you can choose the amount you would like to pay monthly towards the total. Once half of the total is paid I will begin editing your images and send over a few sneak peeks. Then once the total is paid in full I will deliver your online gallery within 2 weeks. ☺
I hope that offering these payment plans will help ease the financial pains we have all felt with inflation. Just make sure to let me know at the time of booking if you are needing a payment plan option so we can work out the best arrangement for you!
