Hi, friends! Welcome! If you’re viewing this blog post, you may be curious on how clients receive their beautifully perfected digital gallery of images they may treasure forever. You’re in luck! Cozy up: I have all the information you need to make a decision on if SBP is a great fit for you!

Fully Transparent Pricing Guide | What Does “All Inclusive” Mean?

Part of being one of the best and highest rated newborn, baby, and infant photographers in Houston is having a fully transparent pricing guide reflecting packages from which parents may select. Sessions are fully inclusive meaning you select a digital collection that comes with the number of digital files you’d like to receive. The rate you see on the session you select includes time, talent, session design, props and accessories, retouching, and then the preparation of your online gallery so you may select the images that take your breath away!

For example: the super popular and affordable ‘wrapped newborn mini’ package comes with 10 full resolution, retouched digital files of your choice. This package is $400 + tax. There are no additional or hidden fees to receive those ten perfected files you may print as many times as you would like, share with family and friends, and treasure for generations to come.

There are no separate session fees and one flat rate covers your package. This allows parents to properly budget, know in advance, and find the perfect for for their needs. If you’re looking for gorgeous, dreamy, and timeless baby portraits, I’m the gal for you!

This in mind, the pricing guide will tell you how many photos you receive and you book the package based on what you’d like to receive. Simple, easy, transparent.

Two Week Turnaround Time

  • Two weeks after your appointment takes place, you receive a password protected digital gallery of gorgeous images you may view from the comfort of your own couch, bed, kitchen table, desk, etc., ha! For instance, if your session takes place on September 24th, you may expect to see your gallery on 10/8, which is 14 days later. In that time frame, your session is being culled, edited, and perfected so you may see a polished, stunning product of fantastic images that’ll make you swoon!

  • You will enter your private gallery through any device such as computer, tablet, or smart phone. You do need to use a laptop or PC to download the images, however! This will ensure they’re safely archived and you do not lose a USB or Disc.

  • Your gallery will tell you how to create a “favorites” list. The “favorites” list will tell me which images you would like to receive. Once you’ve completed your list, a new gallery will be prepared for you so you may download these images. If you would like further additional files that is always an option but never an obligation.

  • The non-distracting watermark on the proofing gallery will be removed once you select your final images. While there is a watermark to prevent screen-shooting on the initial gallery, final copies are non-watermarked as these images are yours to share and print.

  • The gallery is available to be shared with family and friends, or perhaps even loved ones who do not reside in the Houston area. You’re free to share these images with anyone who would love to also have copies. This method of sharing is modern and easily accessible to family members everywhere.

Full Resolution Digital Files

All digital files given to clients at SBP are full resolution, meaning they are the absolute highest quality. You may print these images as large as you would like, typically up to 50”x60”, though there are labs that offer even larger sizes if needed. They are sized to 300 DPI for the best quality. Full resolution will prevent too much leaking, loss, and lack of image detail; the images are edited to reflect quality; your digital files are the same way.

How to Store Your Digital Files

After you download your photos, you will receive a list of wonderful labs from me so you know where to purchase you files. In that list, nonetheless, you’ll also find three free cloud storage systems I recommend which keep your images safely archived so if you do lose a laptop or your computer dies, the images are there for you.

Printing Needs & Recommendations

I have created a blog post sharing (3) awesome lab choices for you. I have also included some really neat sample wall art groupings so you can hang your images in your home. I hope this inspires you to print your images!

  • Simple, transparent pricing with affordable options

  • Education on where to archive and print your images
