Pricing for your custom photography

When you book your session, I'll send you information on how to prepare for your shoot along with a model release and contract. Sitting fees include the photographer's preparation, travel to the location, image editing and retouching, previews of your gallery, and delivery of your products. After the shoot, we'll arrange a gallery viewing of approximately 30 photos. The sitting fee is due two weeks prior to the session. You can see a preview of your gallery within 3 days of your session on my blog, and you will receive your prints within 1 week of your order.

One-hour session for up to 5 people at the location of your choice. Please add $10 for each additional person. This session is perfect for families, young children, engagement, or maternity.

Three-hour session in the comfort of your home.

This combines the portrait and newborn sessions--a perfect baby shower gift!

I have found that my clients prefer to buy individual prints in order to meet their needs rather than pre-set packages. I have priced my prints lower than most photographers in order to provide more flexibility for my clients. These are the most commonly purchased sizes, but there are many print sizes and product options available to meet your needs.

4x6: $5
5x7: $10
8x10: $15

11x14: $125
16x20: $170

All images remain copyright of Andrea Bacle Photography. You may purchase digital images for $25 each after a print order of at least $75, or you may purchase your entire gallery for $350.

Be Careful - No Copyright Notice is Necessary on Images

No Copyright Notice

Since October 31, 1988, works no longer need a copyright notice to have copyright protection. This means any image you find on a web page may be copyrighted. The traditional notice, such as "Copyright 1989 XZV Co." or " ©1989 XZV Co." is no longer required. Most web site content has been created since 1988, so beware.

Don't Copy, Modify or Display Images You Find

The Copyright act gives the copyright owner the exclusive right to reproduce or modify their work, and to exclude others from doing so. Copying includes copying or saving their image to your hard drive, or copying to other mediums, like scanning a photo from a book and turning it into a JPEG file.
Modifying a work, say by cropping, coloring, distorting, enlarging, etc. is not a way around this law. Creating a derivative work "or any other form in which a work may be recast, transformed or adapted" is an infringement.
If you take a copyrighted image without permission, and put it on a web page, you are violating the exclusive right of the copyright owner to display his work. (See 17 U.S.C.A. § 106).
