Pricing and Print Information

 

*************All sessions are for immediate family members only (parents and children).  Sorry, but I do not do any extended family shoots at this time.***************
All sessions include a Dropbox link of edited high resolution files, online viewing here (ordering optional).  You will also receive a folder of resized images, with my logo, for web sharing.  A deposit is required upon booking, the remainder is due the day of the shoot.  I accept cash, check, Chase easy pay and payments through Paypal.  Checks should be made payable to Jan Van Velse.  I will travel to most of the surrounding areas of Indianapolis, anything beyond 20 miles from Broad Ripple (zip 46220) is subject to a travel fee.

NEWBORN SESSION
$650
-25-50 images via Dropbox link and Smugmug for safe keeping
-The best time to contact me for booking is the beginning of the third trimester. It is important to have the session within the baby’s first 12 days of life if possible. After two weeks of age, babies are more likely to be disturbed while sleeping.
-These sessions are for up to 3 hours and typically done in my studio in Broad Ripple, where I use a mix of natural and studio light.
-All newborn sessions will receive a three page guide on what to expect and how to prepare for a session once a deposit is made. This guide is very important so please read carefully.
-I own over 40 newborn hats, lots and lots of organic wraps as well as fabric backdrops and props.  All you need is baby:)
-A deposit of $150 required upon booking to hold your spot. The remainder is due the day of the shoot. If baby arrives early or late we just adjust.  My calendar changes almost weekly!
-Newborn sessions are typically scheduled during the week because weekends are filled with family sessions.  Other arrangements can be made if needed with the exception of the busy fall season.
-*First Year Package* – For families looking for a ‘first year’ package, I offer 15% off session booked within 3 months of the last session.

FULL SESSION (includes ages 3 months of age and up as well as family)

****All digital collections include a print release assigned to the client.  Velse Photography retains the rights to all images and does not sell unedited images.  Images may not be altered in any shape or form.  Any images uploaded to social networking sites must have Velse Photography’s logo.  Along with the a folder of full resolution files, a folder of re-sized images with logos will be provided in your Dropbox link for you.  Please be advised that all packages and pricing are subject to change without notice, any package booked within two weeks before changes (secured by deposit) will be honored.

FULL & MINI SESSION LOCATION INFORMATION
My favorite locations are Holliday Park, Butler, Fountain Square, Downtown Indy, Downtown Zionsville, Ft. Benjamin State Park ($5 entrance fee) and Indianapolis Art Center. I also love the Indianapolis Museum of Art but they do charge a photography fee of $50 per day, which can be added to your session fee if you choose.
Most weekend sessions are booked back to back at one of these locations. If you have a different location you like, it will most likely have to be an evening during the week to accommodate.
I will travel to most of the surrounding areas of Indianapolis but anything beyond 20 miles from zip code 46220 (Broad Ripple) will have an additional travel fee of 60 cents per mile round trip.

PROPS
-Newborn sessions- I have a huge array of newborn hats, wraps, faux fur rugs and baskets. I allow parents to bring keepsake items such as quilts and handmade hats to be used. Most other props do not photograph well and interrupt the creative process. Please inquire for further questions.
-3 month sessions- many of the newborn props can be used in a 3 month session if held in the studio. For an outdoor session, I will bring blankets to lay baby on and often times parents hold baby. I can also bring hats upon request.
-6 month session- such a fun age for photos! I will bring a basket to assist with sitting as well as blankets.
-9 month session- I will bring blankets, baskets and a bench to sit on or stand against.
-One year session – I will bring blankets and a bench.
-Family sessions: All outdoor sessions I will bring several blankets so the family can sit together, sitting on bare ground is welcome too!  For FULL SESSIONS- I will work with the family to determine special props to make the session unique to that family.  Endless possibilities for a truly unique photo shoot!

 

 

 

 

What if it rains?
Can we shoot in the studio?   Sure! But if you have a toddler the studio has its pros and cons which we can discuss if need be.  In the warmer months I try to reschedule for an outdoor session when possible.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?  Ah, the age old question!  Its always such a personal opinion and I always suggest looking around on Pinterest to get ideas.   I am a fan of less is more, especially when in the studio.  Always try to coordinate versus match each other.

Other events
I am currently not photographing extended families, weddings or special events (birthday parties, anniversaries, corporate events), senior pictures or any type of head shot.

Hi Jan–
I was singing your praises the other day to my financial advisor, Mark Wise, telling him how pleased I was with the pix you took for my book cover. You’ll notice some of them are up on my website, also.

I told him I’d track down your info. I can’t seem to find your email or phone on this website. Can you please send it to me? The one I have might be outdated and I don’t want him to miss you.

Regards,
Jean Palmer Heck
