Photo Session Fees
$180 - Standard Session Lasting Up To One Hour
Most sessions (family, kids, couples, pets, etc.) can be completed comfortably within one hour. If scheduling permits additional time may be added but that cannot be guaranteed. When booking your session be sure to explain what you are looking for so adequate time can be booked.

When Should I Invest In A 2-Hour Photo Shoot?
A two-hour session is strongly recommended for:
- Any session where you want to avoid feeling rushed (Boudoir-themed sessions are a very personal experience. You want to feel relaxed, comfortable and at your best.)
- Any session where clothing changes may be required (Maternity, fashion, and boudoir are good examples where this often applies.)
- New baby sessions: this allows Mommy and baby to be unrushed and have time for feedings and diaper changes as may be needed.

Additional People
For extended family shoots (more than parents & children) a $20 fee will apply for each additional person. The same fee applies if you wish to add a person to an Intrigue or Enchant shoot.

- a $50 non-refundable retainer will be required for shoots up to 2 hours and can be paid in cash, cheque, certified cheque, money order or via PayPal. The remainder will be due on the date of you session prior to shooting.  For weddings 1/3 of your fee will serve as a retainer when booking, 1/3 is due a month prior to the wedding and the final 1/3 is due one week prior to the wedding.
- a Client Release may be required. You can review, sign and return the document in advance or you may sign it at the time of your session.

All sessions can be booked at my home/farm in Sherwood Park, your home or an alternate location of your choice. Any applicable location fees are your responsibility. You may reserve a location independently for any shoot. If I am reserving a location the location-fee must be paid at the time of booking.
* Please let me know in advance if you wish to include pets as this could affect location options.

All photo sessions include local travel within Sherwood Park.
Travel fee may apply to alternate locations.

If extended transport and accommodations are required they must be provided at your expense.

Hair and Makeup:
These services can be arranged and must be requested prior to booking confirmation. Hair and makeup prices can be provided upon request.  Rates may vary depending upon what you want. When booking these services a 50% non-refundable stylist-retainer must be included with your photo session retainer.

All sessions include a disk with a minimum of 10 high-resolution, edited, print-ready images in 2:3 ratio.
I will also include watermarked copies of all images for online display and e-mail sharing.

Images may be printed as often as you like but images are not to be retouched or edited.

All images remain the property of By Design Photography.

Please know that I focus on providing photos that are true to life. When editing I focus on gentle enhancement and removal of small marks or blemishes.
If you have special editing requests please let me know prior to booking.
Individually edited images may be available upon request for an additional $10 per-image fee.


All fees are subject to change prior to booking confirmation. A booking is considered "confirmed" when you have set a time/date/location and the non-refundable retainer has been received & processed.
