Why are professional photographers expensive?

I really like this blog post by another well respected photographer. I figured I'd share it on my own blog. So here ya go...
*sidenote: Walmart and Target have closed their studios. So there ya go.

Why are Professional Photographers so expensive? (This article has been very well received by the photography community, and is now referred to by countless Photography websites, blogs and forums (such as LDPT, ILP and DWF)around the world).
In this digital age where everyone has digital cameras, scanners and home "photo printers", when people upload their photos to a local drug store website and pick them up a few hours later, we hear this all the time - How in the world do Professional Photographers charge $55 for an 8x10 when they cost just $1.50 at the drug store?

December Photos

I will not be doing holiday sessions in the month of December. November 30th will be the last day for sessions that are wanting prints for the holidays. I will resume regular sessions and mini sessions only beginning in January. Please grab your holiday spots asap.

What are the benefits of having a personal photographer?

- Your session and portraits are customized to your personal taste

- Your session will not be boring, stuffy, uptight, or pretentious

- You schedule your sessions at your own convenience

- Receive more bang for your buck

Holiday Aroma

Ever wish you could get that holiday smell in your home without sweating in front of a hot oven and just basically not put in the work?  Also, who wants to keep buying those expensive candles when all you want is to just fill your home with the smell of love and not fill your pockets with hate? That's a rhetorical question, of course. I have a quick homemade potpourri recipe for you.  

 Simmering Potpourri
from the kitchen of Mauresa Perez

2 Tablespoons  ground cinnamon, or as desired
2 Tablespoons ground nutmeg, or as desired
2 orange peels, or as desired
3.5 cups water

1) Bring small pot of water to boil with cinnamon and nutmeg.  Mix thoroughly. Mix in orange peels.
2) Reduce pot to simmer on very low heat.  Add water as liquid gets low. 

*Can also be warmed in oil warmer

A Mini Session is for those who might be saving their pennies but still appreciate fine custom photography. If you don't have much time in your schedule but would love to update your family portraits, then these sessions are perfect for you. These sessions are also suitable for those that also need just a few shots for gifts, engagement announcements, or to prep for your family holiday cards. Oooor Maybe you've heard of me through a friend or family member and just want to see what I'm about.

Mini sessions will be offered several times a year at different locations and will be announced in advanced here on my blog or on my Instagram.

*Private Mini Sessions

Want to make a playdate of it? Private Mini Sessions can be hosted at your home with 3 or more scheduled sessions. Invite your neighbor or relatives and friends. The host will receive a complimentary mini session on that day. Have a request for a special spot around town? Let me know and I will make a day of it! Details of these sessions are the same as a regular Mini Session listed above.

There is a $25 fee to repost proofs in the private online gallery.

All Mini Sessions:
~booked back to back so if you are late, you will only have the remaining time to complete your session
~do not allow time for outfit changes
~due to the time restrictions, we will focus on a particular shot - family shots, individuals of 2 children or less, sibling shots, etc. If we have time after we have gotten that shot, we will work on others.

These sessions will be very limited so please contact me soon with any questions or to grab your time!
