It is the most wonderful time of the year!  It is time for family portraits.  Ok, I hope you didn't just cringe.  I know that it can sometimes be stressful but that may be just because you have not done a family session with me.  I make it so fast and painless, even your hubby won't complain, too much.  since these sessions are inside you will not need to worry about rain, snow, or wind changing our plans.

Does this session include digitals?

Normally my portrait collections do come with digital images but the mini-session does not include any digital images.  This way you only purchase the images you want in the format you want them, giving you more control over what final products you receive and how much you spend.  Ultimately creating your own portrait package.

If we want all the final images do you offer a package deal?

I do, when I send you the link to view I will include a digital package option so that you can purchase the entire gallery and download it at a fantastic price.  If you choose to purchase the entire gallery you will be able to download the digitals right away.

How long after I receive my gallery will I have to choose what I want to purchase?

You will have until the end of January 2021 to make your final purchases.  On 1/31/21 the gallery will expire and you will no longer be able to make a purchase. In the event you need a little more time please email me, keeping in mind I will need 48 hours notices to change the expiration date.

How much are the digitals & prints?

When it comes to my budget, I don't like surprises, so I assume you don't either.  Below you will see the most popular print, digitals & gift pricing options.  Most clients spend an average of $450.00 final investment for their holiday portraits but you could spend as little as $75.00 for the session and your favorite printed portrait.  Additional options will be available to you.  Orders are processed and delivered directly to you within three business days.

Digital Downloads are $75.00 each and include printing and personal use rights.

Prints, greeting cards, and gifts:

8X10 Print $12.00

11X14 Print $34.00

16X24 Print $98.00

Metal Prints start at $90.00

Greeting Cards Start at $65.00 per box of 25

Metal Ornaments start at $22.00

Magnets, Mugs & Coasters Start at $7.90

Can I share my gallery with friends and family?

Yes please do.  You can send the link to anyone you would like so they can help you pick your favorites.  They can also order their own prints and photo gifts if they want to. Images will be watermarked until purchased and if you choose to share on social media you are welcome to do that, please give photo credit to @samanthamarkeyphotography, and if possible tag my business page.

Can we bring our fur-babies?

We love animals however my studio space is pretty small so let's talk first to see if it is practical.  

I need my images faster than the average processing time of three weeks, is that possible?

Rush processing available; please email me for the additional information and fees.



If you have any additional questions please feel free to email me or shoot me a text.
