All Studios have two costs associated with your Portraits...

The Photo-shoot fee - This is a separate fee all studios charge to cover your photographer's time and talent, the time needed to prepare your images for presentation and the time for your View and Purchase presentation. It does not apply toward your portrait package. Many studios charge by the number of backgrounds/outfits/locations or even the number of times the photographer clicks the shutter on the camera. We feel this limits creativity and charges you for the inability of the photographer to get it right the frist time.

At Carroll and Van James Studios, your Photo-shoot fee is based soley on the number of subjects in your group or type speciality sessions. Photo-shoots range from as low as $50 to $200 and are completely satisfaction guaranteed ~ If you're not happy, we do it again for free.

The Portrait Products and Packages - The second cost of Fine Portraits is the package and products you wish to order for family and friends; We offer a huge variety of awesome portrait products, everything from wall and gift prints to albums, books, Photo Apps and many other Boutique items to fit your each and every need. While it would be impossible to show all the different items available on a single web page, you may request our full 20 page Portrait Experience Catalog at your planning meeting.
