Making today's photographs for tomorrow's memories


Fine portraits are carefully posed, properly illuminated, and archivally printed for future generations and are the best way for you to preserve today's moments in time.  They require thought and planning.  They are not just "snapshots"!

With Jane Ballard Photography, I will walk you through the process, beginning with finding out just exactly WHAT your needs are and to help you choose the right clothing for the session.  From Senior graduation cards to a family wall portrait, I want to create exactly what you want!

Jane Ballard Photography will start with the Consultation.  I prefer to do this in person (we get to meet and find out if we are a good fit to work together!) but I can do a phone consultation, too, if you prefer.  Once we have discussed your needs and decided on a plan of action, we will book a date to create the images.  At that time, a $200 deposit will be due, securing your date and time on our calendar.  The balance of your selected package will be due no less fifteen (15) days before your scheduled session.  I can work with you to create a payment plan for you, if you like.

On the date of your photography session, we will again go over your plan of action and be sure we capture the images that you need.  Within a couple of weeks following your photography session, we will meet again for a viewing session for you to see your images for the first time.  At this time, if you are not just totally thrilled with the images I have captured for you, just ask me to refund your investment and we will part ways with no hard feelings!  If you're not happy, then I'm not happy!

If you ARE thrilled with your images, we will go over what images and print products you wish to order.  Your print credit will be applied to your order.  Any additional investments that you wish to make at that time will be due and payable before the order is placed.

In another couple of weeks or so, after the order is placed, I will call you to let you know that your prints are in!  We can either schedule a time for me to deliver the prints to your home or you can pick them up at the studio.

All paid photography orders will be accompanied by small digital files to share on social media and with friends and family.  Full resolution digital negatives will be made available for purchase either individually or as a session set.  Sales tax of 7.2% will be collected on all print and digital orders.

Jane Ballard Photography offers three packages that include one hour creation time, in studio or on location, and print credits toward your orders.

The Family Blessings package is the best option if you are looking for wall art, an album, or multiple prints for sharing and is $1199 with $999 in print credit towards your print order.

The Memory Maker package is best suited for people who are more interested in photo books and prints and is $799 with $599 in print credit towards your print order.

The Say Cheese! package is best if you are looking for smaller prints to share with family and friends and is $399 with $199 in print credit towards your print order.

If you need something quick, like a corporate portrait, you might be interested in the Studio Focus option.  With the Studio Focus option, we will start with a half hour in studio only creation session to capture your images.  We will review the images and decide on your print order immediately following the creation session.  Studio Focus is $99 with no print credit.  All prints ordered at that time will be due and payable before the order is placed.
