Portrait session information - colinajmurphy

Portrait packages


Hello! Thanks for visiting my page and for your interest in booking a photo session. I keep it simple: All sessions include 60 minutes of on-location shooting, individual editing attention to every photo and a yield of about 50 photos in a downloadable online gallery. Contact me via email at colinajmurphy@gmail.com or via call/text at 336-408-9475 to schedule your session, or if you have any questions.

I keep my sessions light, casual and fun. We just go for a fun stroll through a picturesque place, have a few laughs and get some great shots.

2017 prices:

Senior portraits – $329 – Senior portraits are always an enjoyable time. We’ll choose a spot with great backdrops and settings, go for a leisurely stroll and stop periodically to take shots. Clients are always thrilled with the casual, walkabout portraits they receive. You can bring a change of outfits and any props (such as sports uniforms and equipment) to capture your interests and pursuits along with your personality. 45-75 minutes of shooting, editing attention to every photo and about 40-70 beautiful shots. A popular value option to drive the cost down: bring a friend (or two or three) for $99 per friend. People often enjoy doing this anyway, since they can enjoy the shoot with friends while sharing laughs, all while capturing memories, and everyone comes out with great shots.

Families – $349 – Get shots now while you’re all together, before the kids are all grown and off to college! Take care of that holiday card family photo while you can! Families of five or less can enjoy great value at $349 for a session. For families of more than five people, add $49 per person up to seven total people. For larger groups, multiple families together or large family reunions, contact me for a custom price.

Engagements – $329 – I really enjoy engagement shoots, because the couples get a chance to relax and have fun for an hour or so, and the shots are always great. An engagement shoot is a great way to beautify your wedding website and get you and your family ready for the big day.

Newborns – $329 – Newborns shoots are fun and challenging and often require up to two hours of shooting. My favorite part about newborn shots is how they capture a fleeting moment in time when your baby is tiny and new to the world. We’ll get a great mix of shots of your baby as well as shots of mom, dad and any siblings all together.

Add-ons: Your photos will be beautiful regardless. Some people love the versatility of additional offerings, so I make them available: 

       Additional editing – $99 – Every session comes with a personalized editing process as part of the all-inclusive price. Many people and families, however, find they love the look of different kinds of black-and-white conversions and different trendy styles of finishes and editing looks, and they choose to have their whole gallery converted to black and white and other trendy styles as an option. I always include a handful of black and whites and alternate finishes for free, and you can have all your shots done in the style you love the most.

       Prints – Your gallery includes all your photos, which are yours to download and print for personal use however you wish. Many people also choose to purchase prints and other ready-to-hang wall art products through my website because I use a professional printer superior in quality, color and clarity than what you will get in most local retail printers or one-hour printing stops. My ordering process is simple and can be done online straight from your gallery, and print products start as low as $1.99 per print.

If you don’t see a package that fits your specific need, that’s no problem. Feel free to contact me to inquire; I can always tailor sessions to fit your specific needs or answer any questions about packages and prices.

About me: My full-time job is as the sports reporter for the Severna Park Voice and Pasadena Voice newspapers, so I spend the school year documenting the athletic feats of student athletes and teams throughout Anne Arundel County in words, pictures and video. I have been a professional photojournalist and reporter in this and other capacities since 2010. It’s a job I’ve always loved, because it gives me the chance to celebrate the achievements of hard-working kids and organizations and preserve the memories of people doing the things that are important to them and the community. I began photographing school and theater events professionally in 2012, and I have been doing portrait work professionally since 2014. Much like my work photographing sports, I love doing portraiture, because it gives me a chance to connect with people and provide them with memories they’ll always cherish.
