sessions & pricing

 

 

Custom art is an investment.  Shelley Castle Photography understands the special place that pets have in our families.  Like all our family members, pets deserve the same level of professional expertise and artistic talent to capture their beauty and personality in a portrait; as clients, you deserve the utmost customer service, quality products and personalized guidance in each step of the process.  I would be proud to be chosen to provide these services for you.

The Inaugural Session is the perfect starter session for those clients that are looking for a stunning piece of custom art work for their wall and a few additional fine art prints or products.  This is also a nice add on session for clients looking for additional pictures to help create more looks for an album, or photos from another season or location.  Inaugural Session clients order from the SCP a la carte price list.

The Remember Me Session $175

The Remember Me Session is a tribute session created for pets facing significant age and health issues.  Letting go of our treasured best friend is a very difficult process, and it is often at this time we realize we have few pictures or that we are missing that “special one.”  With these tribute sessions I take extra time to find the beauty, love, friendship, smiles, and joy our pets gift us with.  I use my knowledge of pets and photography skills to capture this all with the dignity your dog, cat or horse deserves, regardless of the situation.  I encourage pictures together with your pet, focusing on your bond.  My goal is to provide my clients with images that honor the status that our pets have in our families and our hearts.

These sessions take special priority and I will do everything possible to accommodate families as quickly as possible.   For these sessions and I do not place either time constraints or limits on the number of pets or members of the immediate household family to be included in the shoot.  Furthermore, I waive the $300 minimum product purchase required in all other sessions.

For more details about these services, read about the SCP Custom Photography Process.

SCP provides additional specialty sessions for equine photography and horse shows and events, as well as clients who desire a more comprehensive “Day in the Life” Session that goes beyond what is provided in the above standard session.   Contact me and let’s chat about your needs so I can send you our Session Guide that gives detailed information on the additional sessions I provide.

SCP offers a wide range of premium professional print products including gallery-wrapped canvases, custom designed coffee table books, wood gallery mounts and museum-quality framing, gift prints and digital packages.  As an exclusive service, SCP can arrange to have a professional fine art framer available for a free consultation during our order meeting to assist you with any framing, decor, or gallery installation and lighting advice regarding your selections.

Print prices start at $50 for 8×12 prints.  Prints are available a la carte or at significant savings through our art collection packages.  Please inquire about our full-pricing.
