2021 Session Fees

*Session fees include photographer’s time, talent and custom-editing of photos, no prints or digital files are included.  Pricing for prints and digital files can be found below.

** HST will be added onto all session fees and orders.

Contact me for the price list for individuals, grads and seniors or the commercial price list for head shots and product photography.

$95 session fee for an approximate 1 to 1.5 hour session at my Vankleek Hill studio or at a local outdoor location with your immediate family (2 generations) or up to 5 people.  If you have 4 or 5 kids; or more if you’re really brave, you won’t be charged extra.   Each additional person is $25 ** contact me for session fee packages for larger groups and generational family sessions). I do not hold sessions inside of homes, however I occasionally photograph families outside at their homes or at locations outside of the Vankleek Hill area.  Mileage will be charged at $0.55/km, on distances above 20km (40km round-trip) from Jan Amell Photography in Vankleek Hill and depending on the distance, an additional travel fee may apply.

Boudoir Sessions are $125 for a 1.5 hour session that includes multiple outfit changes.

Newborn sessions are $125 and may take up to 3 hours.  They are best from 6 to 10 days old when your little one will sleep for longer stretches and easier to place into poses.    As I only photograph a certain amount of newborns each month it is recommended to book your session before your baby is born so that I can add her to my monthly list, then to contact me after the birth to choose a date.

$50 add-on to have a grandparent session with the newborn or a sibling session with the newborn.  If you have a lot of other children, it may make sense to photograph the children on a separate day.  Sometimes young siblings aren’t quite sure about their new baby and waiting another week or 2 til the baby is a little older is better.

$295 for a series of 4 sessions that can be used for maternity, newborn, when baby is sitting (6-8 months), and one on or before baby’s 1st birthday.

Maternity & Newborn Packages

$195 for both sessions together.

Digital package of 15 maternity images and 25 newborn images $600 ($325 in savings).

$75 Session Fee for Individuals, grads and seniors.  I have special packages available for grads and seniors as well.  If you would like pictures taken of your graduate in a cap and gown let me know and arrangements can be made. The session fee for seniors is as an individual or as a couple.

$125 Business Headshots.  Update your business card and website images.  Contact me for ideas and pricing.

$200/hr Events and parties including digital files. Event and party coverage is similar to Wedding Reception coverage.  It is candid and includes some group shots, but it is not a family session with various family groupings.  Packages available to include both event coverage with a family session, the Photobooth, a book or more.
