    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!
