Sean Kelly Portraits offers several options for creating portraits that meet your needs. In addition, a pre-session consultation is included to discuss portrait ideas, location, clothing, etc. The cost of the portrait session is due at the time of the consultation, should you decide to book me. The price of the portrait session does not go toward the purchase of prints.
We encourage pets to be included in your family portraits!
Basic Portrait Session $25
This 30-minute studio session is perfect for most individuals, couples, children or small families. We do a variety of standard poses with different backgrounds. No clothes changes or special effects (such as colorization or chroma-key).
You may select any number of poses from the session for your portrait package. A free pre-session consultation is recommended, but not necessary.
Full Portrait Session $50
This hour-long studio session is recommended for larger families, as well as those wanting more artistic lighting and posing. You may wear different outfits, and you may choose optional special effects. A free consultation is necessary to discuss your ideas, clothing, etc.
Senior Portrait Special $300
Two sessions, one in the studio and one at a location of your choice. Each session is around two hours to allow multiple clothes changes and backgrounds, as well as variety of posing and lighting techniques. No charge for special effects. Included with the sessions is a professionally bound custom proof book with your favorite images printed in it!
A planning session is included as well to discuss clothes and locations and ideas for portraits.
On Location and Custom Sessions
If you would like to be photographed at a location near Taos, the session fee is $100. This includes at least an hour session and also covers the time to set up and take down my equipment. For locations further than 10 miles from Taos, rather than a travel fee I require a minimum purchase which is paid in advance. For example, to travel to Sipapu, Taos Ski Valley, Questa or Angel Fire, I require $100 deposit in addition to the session fee. The full deposit goes toward the purchase of prints, so you end up not paying a travel fee.
New Baby Program! $225
For expecting mothers, we offer a maternity session (around 7 months pregnant), plus four sessions from birth until 14 months. You will also receive an 8X10 portrait from each session, and a professionally bound proof album with your favorite poses at the end of the year. Recommended ages are newborn (before 1 month old), 3-4 months, 6-9 months, and one year. Other family members, including pets, are encouraged to be in the pictures!
