charge extra for the portrait session?
We offer four solutions: our main portrait
package, which costs $250; a CD of the enhanced images for $105; a
mega-pack of 50 4x6 prints of your favorite shots for $55; and ala
carte print and gift items at our regular gallery prices. There are NO
extra costs! No session fees; no cost for multiple locations, outfit
changes, or even photo enhancements!
- What about sales tax? And shipping?
Our printing lab is in Texas, therefore, you pay no Ohio sales taxes.
if you purchase a CD of the original digital files, we ship it from
Ohio which in turn requires us to charge local taxes. The only items
incurring extra shipping costs are the ala carte items in our gallery.
