What do you charge for portraits?

I get that question all the time. It's a good one worth posting here because I know lots of you are wondering that! My answer depends on what you want photographed. Currently, we are charging $50 an hour for every hour we're shooting you. That $50 goes towards the purchase of whatever you want to purchase from what we offer. We sell our photographs in units. A unit is: 1 - 8x10 or 2 - 5x7s (of the same pose) or 4 - 3x5s (of the same pose) or 8 - wallets (of the same pose) or 12 - compact wallets (of the same pose) Each unit is usually around $10 and you can purchase these units of your favorite poses at the minimum of whatever we're charging for your session, ie. $50 for one hour, $100 for two hours. We do have larger prints but these take up more than one unit. They include: 11x14 = 5 units 16x20 = 10 units 20x24 = 15 units 30x40 = 25 units CD w/full copyright = 1 unit per image purchased These prices are subject to change and reflect typical single
