The beautiful thing about physical products is the fact that they ARE physical. You can see, touch, and enjoy them easily.
Digital images must constantly be pulled up. Physical items are already sitting on the shelf or hanging on the wall, and your eyes are drawn to them every day. Digital products are easily lost, even ignored.
Enjoy the VU Photography is a full-service photography service. We walk you through each step from planning your session to hanging framed pictures on your walls!
Sessions start at $150, a small base fee which covers my time, travel, and the expertise that I pour into your session. This session fee does not include prints, products, or digital files. You’ll invest in those during your ordering session!
This is the time when we will customize a package to suit your needs. Often my clients are so in love with their images that they invest between $300-$900 for large and small photo prints, keepsake wall art (canvases and framed prints), albums, and digital files.
You have total control, freedom of choice, and flexibility to choose which artwork is the best fit for your family. You are not confined to the choice of a few preset packages – instead, choose what you want and what best suits your family and décor.
We accept credit cards and also have payment plans available if needed.
Be assured that you will receive a digital gallery with files specifically optimized for sharing on social media with every session.
Why should I order products through you?
Online and drugstore photo labs use inconsistent color profiles, incorrect contrast settings, and auto “enhancements” intended for photos taken on low quality and outdated cameras. This results in discoloration (too orange or green or purple), pixelated, and dark, flat prints.
Ordering through a professional service ensures pictures that will stand the test of time and will not fade or yellow over the years. Prints have a protective coating to keep them beautiful for a lifetime. My images are calibrated for my professional lab of choice (I have worked with them for over 4 years).
I personally review each picture before I send it out to print and again before I pass them on to you, ensuring they are of the highest quality to protect your investment.
I am happy to work with you to create custom cards, save the dates, and graduation invitations that showcase your personality and save you time.
Remember – you’re worth it! In the end, family memories are all we really have. When children grow up and move away these are the times you will look back on fondly. Don’t put it off for another year!
What types of products do you offer?
I provide framing services in addition to simply ordering prints! It has been my experience that many people order prints only to procrastinate on actually getting them framed and on their walls, so I’m making it easier for you yet again!
I offer a variety of framing colors, materials, and packages to create an entire gallery wall with mix and match frames!
I also offer album designing – albums aren’t just for weddings anymore! Albums are available in sizes from 5×5 up to 12×12 inches with your choice of faux leather, linen, or photo cover!
In addition, I offer professional grade prints, canvas gallery wraps, and custom USBs to preserve your pictures in all forms.
Not quite ready to settle on a frame? No worries! Rest assured we provide quality packaging to ensure unframed prints make it to their destination safely!
How much is a photography session with you?
Session costs vary depending on the number of people involved. I require a small session fee to cover my time shooting and editing your session, and what you decide to purchase after is completely up to you! This include bundle packages (which save you $$) as well as a la carte options!
Read below for a little more information on all types of sessions!
Senior sessions begin at $150 for a 90 minute session. I offer packages of one, two, or three seasons – the more we shoot together, the more you will save!
