Why am I updating my pricing, process, and products?

As I continue to grow as a business, I have decided to really look into what you want and come up with somewhere I can meet you in the middle.

Kaytee Lorentzen Photography is about to turn four years old and I thought I would do a little bit of research into what I can do to help you out when making purchasing decisions. These went into effect June 1, 2019.

Based off of surveys and some feedback, I have decided to take out the digital gallery buy-in and add it to the session package with the FULL printing rights. (If you are not sure what this means, check out my blog post on copyright, which includes a description on what the difference between copyright and printing rights are).

This did mean that my pricing had to change to reflect this decision, so even though the prices have gone up, that does give you printing rights to the photographs.

I have also taken away product collections as there was very little interest in them, as well as narrowed down to a few products for me to still offer. Since you will now be getting the printing rights, it’s not very often that I will be getting product orders. However, I have kept two options (metal prints and photo albums) as I trust my lab with the most spectacular items (and I can explain them to you more as well as design them for you).

My process (as in the timeline) has been updated to reflect all of these changes.

I have included the new updated pricing sheets for you to see! If you want to see more information, head to my Session Information page.

The EXACT way I plan a photography session

I take a lot of steps to plan the best photography session for you. I wanted to go ahead and explain everything I do so you can get an inside look at the work I do.

First

I go based of the inquiry you send me. What are you interested in? If you say the mini session I am going to decide to do something less elaborate so we can squeeze as much as we can in that small time frame. If you say, the premium session, I know we have a lot more time. We can even decide multiple locations, different outfits, etc.

Second

Then I send you the questionnaire. Once you fill this out, I can REALLY start planning. I come up with ideas to present to you during our session. I can even use this to come up with follow up questions to try to get a better idea of what needs to be done. I look through Pinterest, find bloggers, and even come up with some locations right then and there. I will get a presentation ready for you, but it’s not a definite and can easily be changed.

Third

Consultation time. During this consultation, I will ask any follow up questions that I need and present to you my ideas. We can come up with new ideas as well and use this time as a planning session to get everything we need for the session.

Last

We make the final decision. We decide when, where, and what is going to happen during the session. We will decide if you or I need to bring anything extra and if there is any last things to tie up before the session.

I send you all this information and collect a bunch of answers so that way I can have something ready for you come time for the consultation. This way you aren’t waiting on me to come up with something right on the spot.

Hopefully this was informational and you can see how I plan a session before you even book with me.
