How it Works

My name is Cory Jones and I am the photographer at CJ Photography.  I personally believe that getting portraits made shouldn’t be something you dread doing.  It’s supposed to be fun!

I am so excited you are taking this first step towards capturing some of your most precious memories.  Getting started is easy, just call or message and let's visit a little about what you hope to do with your portraits.  If you already have some ideas of where you're planning on hanging your portraits in your home, let me know and we can figure out what will work best for you!  Wanting to send out gift prints?  Great, there are packages perfect for that!  More of a photo album person?  Yep, there are even custom designed albums available for you!

Setting up your session is easy!  First we can pick a date and time, get a little information from you, and go over locations.  Once that part is set we book your session with the session fee.  Discussing clothing options and ideas is another thing that helps create a wonderful session, so feel free to send over some of your ideas, and let's figure out what works best!

Session time should be fun and as relaxed as possible.  Be sure to have any clothing ironed, packed, and ready the day before your session.  This will help make sure you aren't stressing the day of trying to get everything ready to go!  

Once your session is over it takes about three to four business days to see your proofs.  The images from your session are carefully chosen and edited before you actually see them. Once your proofs are ready you can place your order.  Images are available to order for 30 days unless other arrangements are made.  Once you place your portrait order, prints are back within three business days.

Portrait Pricing and Package Information

What is a Session
A session last one hour, sometimes a little shorter or a little longer.  You can have multiple outfits and locations, but remember travel time is part of your session time.

It is important to be on time to your appointment to make sure lighting is optimal, as well as other scheduled sessions might be after yours.  Time for you session does start as scheduled so don’t cut your session short by being late. Something that helps with this is having your clothing and accessories ready to go the day before your session!  

How much is a Session?
The session fee is $80 and covers the time spent for your photo shoot, as well as the time spent editing and preparing your portraits..  This fee is due at the time of scheduling your session.  We accept cash, check, or card to lock in your session fee, payment can be made in person, or we can send you a secure link for credit card payments

Portrait packages and Items
We have portrait packages that range anywhere from $170 - $695.  Please give us a call or message to visit about seeing the full pricing booklet.  We also have specialty items like albums, invitations, announcements, and wall art.  Almost all of our products and items are ready for pickup within 3-4 business days. (Gallery Blocks and canvas are the exception as they take a little longer to make!)

Digital Files and Copyright Policy for Portrait Sessions

Policies
One of our biggest goals is to deliver quality images, something you would proudly display in your home. That level of quality is not only determined by the camera and editing, but also in the quality of a finished print.

Why is there a difference?  Well, professional print labs have more colors,  better printers, and better equipment.  Plus most professional print labs also use a luster coating on their prints that help protect the images from the elements of time.  After all, aren’t these portraits memories that should be protected over the years.

While we do not offer a disc, we do offer to post any images you purchase in a print on social media for you to share with your family and friends online, all we ask is for you not to re-edit or alter your images.   Want to share them all?  The easiest way would be with the purchase of one of our Albums or slider boxes!

Copyrights
CJ Photography retains all copyrights on portraits.  Federal law makes it illegal to copy, scan, edit, or share photographic prints and digital media without the photographer’s permission. Violators of this Federal Law will be subject to civil and criminal penalties.
