How much do senior pictures cost? ~ Here's how it works...

All Studios have two costs associated with your Senior Pictures... The Photo Shoot Fee (also called a "session charge" or "sitting fee") and the charge for The Package of senior pictures and other products you wish to purchase from your Senior Photo Shoot.

It is important to understand exactly what each charge covers and what you should expect from your investment.

The Photo Shoot Fee

This is a separate fee, charged by all studios, to cover your photographer's time and talent, the time needed to prepare your images for presentation and the time for your View and Purchase presentation. It does not apply toward your portrait package.

Many studios charge by the number of backgrounds or poses or even the number of times the photographer clicks the shutter on the camera. We feel this limits creativity and charges you for the inability of the photographer to get it right the frist time.

At Carroll and Van James Studios, your Photo Shoot fee is based on the amount of time we spend with you, up to 4 full hours at any one location. You may have any outfit you choose and as many poses and backgrounds as you can fit into your time.

Your investment for the up to 4 hour Photo Shoot is only $130. For a slight additional cost you can have unlimited clothing changes and you can add multiple locations for a really great variety of looks and styles. Check out all the styles and senior pictures ideas HERE.

The investment you make in your Photo Shoot will determine just how great your one-of-a-kind Senior Pictures Experience will be. Be sure to take advantage of our Current Specials for additional savings on your Photo Shoot..
