In our last post we started to answer the question ‘how much does newborn photography cost? We talked about our shoot fee for our studio in Lancaster and then gave some examples of packages from our single visit price list and showed how flexible our packages are and how they can be tailored to your precise wishes.
Another wish many of our clients have is to keep coming back to update their photography and document baby’s development. For these clients we have a second price list.
The annual packages are designed so that you can come and have four photo shoots with us. The spread of sessions is totally flexible and they can be used however you wish. You may want to have maternity, newborn, six month and first birthday photography. Or newborn, six month, first birthday and eighteen months photography(we usually go to the beach or the woods and run around for this one). Or you might want to do your own thing such as newborn, first birthday, family shoot at home with Grandparents and then Christmas. There are no hard and fast rules!
One of my favourite things about the Annual Package is that we know that you are coming back. So the money that we would normally invest in marketing to bring in our new clients can be spent on you instead. This means that the Annual Packages are the very best value option that we do.
Almost every client we meet wants the digitals of the photographs they order. They want to make thank you cards, canvas and gifts for the Grandparents. We understand this wish, so all of our Annual Packages come with the digital versions of the images you choose.
We want you to have the flexibility to do what you want with your images, but we also know that the printers online and on the high street are not going to print your images as beautifully as we will. So each visit also includes a professionally printed product either in our luxurious signature metallic or our pristine backed matt. You have had a professional service, so we want you to have a professional product.
This flexibility also extends to the payment. You can choose which way you pay; some of our clients have been given money as a gift when their newborn arrived and they want to invest it in photography. Some of our clients prefer to pay by the visit and others find that as they juggle finances and maternity leave it is most convenient to pay on a monthly basis.
How Much Does Newborn Photography Cost? – Annual Package Collection Break Down
£700, or £175 per visit, or £34 per month for 24 months. The monthly payments do add up to a bit more, but this is unavoidable as we need to cover the go cardless fee that the monthly payment option requires.
The collection includes four sessions (ten and a half hours of studio time) and six images from each session(six plus hours of editing time), the images are high resolution and will print lovely and big (40”x30”). You also get to choose a collection one printed product with each visit, these are all listed on the Annual Package prices page.
Our most popular option, this is £1176, or £294 per session, or £53 per month for 24 months.
As with all the Annual Collections, collection two includes four sessions (ten and a half hours of studio time). Collection two includes twelve images from each session (twelve plus hours of editing time) in high res digital format and one printed product with each visit (four in total). With this collection and above, you can choose any of the products available.
£1800, or £450 per session, or £79 per month for 24 months.
Again four studio or location sessions (eleven and a half hours of studio/shooting time), then twenty images from each session as high res digitals (twenty plus hours of editing time), choice of any one printed product with each visit (four in total). Once all visits are complete, we make an art book album featuring all your favourite portraits, and if you wish, we will commission an illustrator to draw your child’s favourite toy for the front cover (four plus hours album building).
£2616, or £654 per session, or £113 per month for 24 months.
Again you will enjoy four studio or location sessions (eleven and a half hours of studio/shooting time). You will get forty images from each session as high res digitals (forty plus hours of editing time), choice of any print set and any composite set with each visit (eight products in total). Then once all visits are complete, we make an art book album featuring all your favourite portraits, and if you wish, we will commission an illustrator to draw your child’s favourite toy for the front cover (four plus hours album building).
What if I choose Collection One but then I want more images?
If you have purchased an Annual Package you can buy extra digital images for £15 each. If you purchase an extra six digitals we upgrade your print option as well.
Can I order extra prints?
Yes, for extra prints we will direct you to our classic price list. As you have an Annual, you will be given a 20% discount as extra added perk.
Can I start on a payment plan but pay it off once I go back to work?
Yes, it’s no problem to do this. If you do pay off the remainder of your package in this way, the additional charge for the monthly payments will be removed. Reducing your final bill.
Can I set up a payment plan for less payments?
Yes, we can be very flexible. Our price list is set up as a guide, but we can tailor each purchase and payment style to our individual clients needs. Monthly payments cost us £4 per transaction, so this must be taken into account when working out your monthly bill.
