A note about your investment…

As you know, the photography market is full of talented photographers and a wide pricing range. We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to choosing your photographer, and we’re very pleased that you’re considering us. On the pricing scale, we are in a unique position. Many photographers charge a flat fee which includes all the unedited images that they capture for you on disc. Other photographers charge minimal session fees, and choose to not provide any digital files, relying on selling prints and products of the images captured for their income. Little Black Umbrella is a “half-and-half” studio. We want clients to leave the studio with some digital images that they can use online, print themselves at their local big-box retailer, and use in family albums, calendars and holiday cards. But we also want clients to have the benefit of a beautifully finished portrait. In light of that, we work with industry leading professional vendors to provide the highest quality prints and products at competitive prices.

We’ve found that our clients choose us for a combination of our style, quality, portfolio, and competitive pricing. We hope you will too! As a photographer, having you come back for another session in the future is the highest compliment we could receive. Your referral is a close second. We want you to leave with everything you desired!
