Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
Hey my name is maddie, I am a 17 year old aspiring photographer.
I've been doing photoshoots on the cheap side for a couple years, and I really need help pricing photoshoots.

You can see my work here : Maddie’s Photography
Please let me know what you think.

This is what I usually charge (keep in mind I'm not a pro and am charging friends/friends of friends.)
These are all on location outdoor photos.
$125 for
2-3 hours shooting time (but realistically whenever they want)
+editing time in lightroom and photoshop
and their choice of prints

or $175 for
2-3 hours shooting time
+ editing time in lightroom and photoshop
ALL (editied) digital images on a usb.

I am thinking of changing the first package to 175 and the second to 200-250...
But what I really need is a way to charge for different situations ie. Family, Senior, Engagement ect.

Because I personally HATE taking photos of 2 year olds for 175. Its a long story but lets just say i had a horrible experience with TWO, YES TWO 2 year olds and a Baby.
I vowed never again, but here I am about to shoot a Family/ maternity with another 2 year old.
I definitely want to charge more but am not sure what to charge for this. please help!
