Session Pricing

Custom portrait sessions with Lori Mercer Photography start at $200.  No minimum portrait purchase required.  Every session comes with a personal viewing session in the comfort of your home where you are able to see the images on the big screen and hold sample products.  A web-sized watermarked digital file suitable digital display only and posting to Facebook is also included at no additional charge with each image ordered. Special print and digital collection pricing starting at $349 will be available at your personal ordering session.  Print collections offer a significant savings over standard a la carte pricing.  After seeing their images and choosing their favorites, the average client invests $500-$1500 on their custom photography.  Contact me at info@lorimercerphotography.com for complete Price and Product Guide so that we can better discuss your photography needs.
