What is the photo shoot session and retainer fee cover?

If you have never worked with a professional photographer you may find yourself asking two very reasonable questions. “What is this fee? And “what does it pay for?”

A relatively quickly answer is that, a photo shoot session fee is the fee a photographer charges for their services. Of course there is a lot more to taking a picture (even more so of pets) than simply pointing the camera and snapping a photo. You are also paying for the photographers time to do the photo shoot session, pre and post photo shoot work, creative ideas, photo editing and enhancement, traveling, expertise/knowledge, private viewing gallery, plus the retainer/deposit. Fees for a professional photographers typically range anywhere from $100 to $1000. Pets R Family photo shoot session, retainer/deposit, creative fee is currently $300 for on location, but subject to change.
