Here is some information that will answer some common questions about your personal portrait experience. Please feel free to contact Jen with any additional questions.
What can I expect from my session?
I will consult with you prior to your session to determine goals, choose a location, and suggest clothing choices to reflect your family’s personality and coordinate with your home decor. The session itself is shot exclusively in natural light. The morning hours or late afternoon and early evening are my favorite time for photographing, as these times provide the most beautiful light. I will gently guide the session with a comfortable and casual approach. With children especially, I loves to catch natural wonder and genuine smiles. I have been known to sing a silly song or two to make them giggle. My favorite family shots are those where the relationships between the members of the family are apparent; where connection and love can be seen. I strive to do minimal posing, and encourage laughter, games, playfulness, and of course, lots of love during the session!
What happens after the session?
After the session, I artistically edit each individual image before placing it in your online password protected gallery. This is a time-intensive process, so please be patient. I promise your proofs in your online gallery by 2 weeks after the date of your session.
Jen, I’m really interested in some large prints for my walls, but how do I know what sizes to choose? This is a great question. I want your artwork to look incredible in your home, so I have software that allows us to see how various images, sizes, and arrangements will look on the walls of your very own home. Pretty great, right? The best part is, my design time is included with Package 3, and available with Packages 1 or 2 at an additional $100.
How much do clients invest in their photography? Most clients will invest between $375-$800 on their photography. To hold your date and time, you pre-purchase our base package, which is $375 (additional $50 for newborns) and includes the session, artistic editing of each individual image, an online password-protected gallery displaying 20-30 images from your session, and your choice of 5 digital images (in both color and black and white) to print and share to your heart's content. You have the option of adding on more files for an additional fee. Once a year, typically in the Fall, I offer mini session specials as well.
Currently, I am only offering digital files, but I do have reasonably-priced printers I recommend for all your printing needs!
Package 1- $375.
Includes up to 1 hour of session time (2 hours for newborns, additional $50), editing of 20-30 images, viewing of images in your password-protected online gallery, and 5 full-resolution digital images of your choice in both color and black and white (10 files total).
Package 2-$625 Includes everything in package one, but instead of 5 images you pick 10 images (total of 20 files).
Package 3: $800 all of the above, but you receive ALL of the edited digital files in your gallery. This number averages about 25 files but at a minimum will be 20 digital images in both color and black and white (40 files total). Also includes one hour of design consult time, valued at $100. If you need help deciding what sizes to print, or how to group images on your wall, I can assist you. I have a program that allows us to see how different images will look on your walls. Another option for this hour of time is for me to design birth/adoption announcements or holiday cards with your images. Design consult does not include me placing any print orders for you, but I can recommend quality printers at reasonable prices.
Design consult is available with packages 1 and 2 for an additional fee of $100.
What payment methods do you accept? Jen Husz Photography accepts cash, check, or credit card. A $375 non-refundable retainer ($425 for newborns) is due at the time of booking to hold your session date and time. It is then applied to your package purchase. Payment in full is due when placing your order. 5.6% Wisconsin sales tax will be added to all orders.
