CTC Photography | Sessions & Investment

Self

CTC Photography sessions focus on you and your family. I'll spend time with you, probably in different settings, making sure I've got photos that capture the essence of YOU.
 

I understand that having portraits done is an investment - an investment into preserving these memories of how life is in this moment - and so my goal is to provide you with images that you will feel proud to display. My goal isn't to just click the button, but to make the entire experience an enjoyable time for you, from the session to the final edited and processed images - then on to products printed with premium, archival-quality materials. I select and hand-edit each image that I provide, and if you were to watch me as I work you would likely find me smiling - or crying happy tears! - as I go through your images. My goal is for your images to evoke the same emotions - even stronger - for you.

Session time frames are variable with several different factors (weather included, as I am a natural light photographer with primarily outdoor sessions, with the exception of small infants). Generally, the standard sessions will be around an hour, but sometimes up to an hour and a half. If children are involved, I try to keep the session under an hour so they don't get too bored. (Newborns and babies are an exception to this as we will allow plenty of time for diaper changes, feedings, comforting and outfit changes as necessary.) As a mother myself, I understand all too well how children can go from smiling to screaming in less than a second.

  - Military discount**:
   - Preserving family memories in photographs is very important to me. Every family should have memories preserved, and regularly. I know military families are often affected by tours of duty and training that can keep them apart for long periods of time. For families who have members in active military or National Guard, I offer the standard session above at a reduced rate of $100*, with a 15% discount on prints ordered from the session. I also extend the online proofing gallery to 45 days. Please mention the military discount when you are contacting me to book a session, and bring your credentials to the session for verification of the discount.
