Can I buy a gift certificate?
We offer gift certificates in any amount. Please contact Elizabeth (email@example.com) for details.
What are your Signature Prints?
Jeannie has captured many beautiful images from around the world. We’ve made several available in 4x6 ($100) and 5x7 ($130). These make wonderful gifts and are matted and ready for framing.
How do I purchase holiday cards or birth announcements?
Notecards can be purchased before or after your sitting.
Notecards can be ordered well before your sitting appointment happens. Simply visit the notecard price list here and select your quantity. The basic prices reflect a 5x5 or 5x7 folded card with one image and a custom greeting. You can add upgrades to your card now or wait until the card design process unfolds. To take advantage of our yearly card sales, you only need to purchase your basic amount during the sale dates. The discount you lock in with your basic purchase will extend to upgrades made later.
After your sitting, notecard options will be available from your gallery price list.
How does card design work?
When you’ve selected your images from your proofing gallery, contact Paula (firstname.lastname@example.org) to begin the card design process. Include any preferences you have for colors, greeting, size, etc. Paula will create an electronic card proof she can email to you, and you collaborate on card design. When you’ve given approval on design, the cards are ordered. Any upgrades made during the design process are purchased before card pickup.
What are your baby packages?
Jeannie Frey Rhodes Photography offers two packages of sittings for baby’s first year. Package #1 is four sittings at 3 mos, 6 mos, 9 mos and 1 year of age (2 in studio & 2 at home) for $1600. Package #2 adds newborn photos to make five sittings (3 in studio and 2 at home) for $2000. Baby packages must be purchased in full by the first sitting.
When should I schedule my baby sittings?
It is always easier to move a scheduled sitting than to fit a new one in. So the earlier we can get you on the books, the better. Please be aware that Jeannie is in great demand for holiday photos, and September-December sittings start filling up in July. Help us get you in for your child's important milestone ages by contacting us early to schedule. Clients with baby packages are given priority in scheduling their regular appointments.
When do you take newborn photos?
We aim to schedule newborn sittings at about 2-3 weeks old. Experience has shown that a couple of weeks of acclimation and rest after birth makes for the happiest and most rested babies and moms
What are your wedding rates?
Please contact Elizabeth (email@example.com) so we can check availability of your date and get you the most up-to-date information on our wedding package options.
I’m ready to order my wedding album! How do I do that?
When you receive your wedding proofs, please take your time and enjoy viewing them several times. Favorites will emerge as you revisit the images.
When you’re ready to select images for your albums, you can use the favorites function in your website gallery. Please contact us when your image selection process is complete.
What do senior sittings cost?
Seniors use our standard portrait sittings - either in the studio or on location - with just a bit of lagniappe added in. The base fee is $400 for a studio sitting and $600 for a location sitting.
How far in advance should I book my senior sitting?
If you have a deadline in the fall or winter, please call to schedule as early in the school year as you can, to help us fit you into Jeannie's packed holiday schedule. If you have an April or May deadline, please contact us early in the calendar year to get your best appointment.
