New Year, New Offerings

It's true, there's more to life than weddings. Life is made up of thousands of moments and occassions, and for all of them we'd like you to consider Ryan Richardson Photography.

Last week, when we unveiled our referral rewards program, we offered wedding clients the chance to save on future portrait sessions. Today, I'd like to talk a little bit more about what Ryan Richardson Photography has to offer...

Lifestyle and Environmental Photography:

Ryan Richardson Photography is not a portrait studio. Because our two biggest businesses (weddings and editorial photography) are out in the real world, we bring that sensibility to much of our portrait work. Sitting awkwardly on a stool in front of a white or blue background doesn't say anything about you and it doesn't help to create great images.

Whether it's a special spot, the great outdoors or any other place, a location can turn a good picture into a great image. Picking the right location lets your personality shine though and makes your portraits stand out from what you can get from a mall (it's also often more convenient for the client). Sessions typically last about an hour, going through a variety of poses as well as compositions and angles.

Senior Portraits: $200

Senior sessions are geared toward creating great images for parents and teens as they round out their high school careers. Senior year marks a turning point in a young adult's life, a transition from student and child into the adult world and the senior session lets them express themselves and capture that moment in photographs.

In addition to the proof disc of watermarked images, the senior package includes one full-resolution image for use in yearbooks, newspaper announcements as well as senior slideshows. For parents, plenty of great print products are available to share with the rest of the family.

Family Portraits: $200+

Whether you want to mark the arrival of a new member of just get a beautiful image for your holiday cards a family portrait session is the way to go. During your session we will create several posed group shots as well as shots of individuals and different combinations. Price quoted is for a family of four.

Engagement Session: $200

An engagement session is a great way to test the waters with a photographer before your wedding. It lets you get comfortable with him and create some great images to mark the occasion of your engagement. These images can be used to create save-the-date cards, wedding guest books and many other products to pave the way for your wedding.

Customers who purchase an engagement session may recieve a 10 percent discount on purchase of a wedding package.

Maternity & Newborn Package: $1,200

Having a baby is an exciting time full of challenges and changes. To commemorate a new addition to your life and your family, I offer the Maternity & Newborn Package that offers coverage of the first year of your child's life. The package begins with a maternity session, then follows up with a newborn photo session and additional sessions at intervals of three months (a total of 6 session) to follow the growth of your child.

To cap off the first year in your child's life you will receive a stylish baby album with 10 photo spreads and a cool photo cover.

That's not all of course, we're continually adding in new products and hope to launch a much-delayed boudoir line right after Valentine's Day.
