Exciting Updates in 2016!

Gary!

Hey guys! This is my first blog post of the year. I hope to be doing this a little more regularly; posting tips and tricks for theperfect photo, sneak peaks of portrait sessions, and updates of exciting things we have in store for all of you!

My 2016 has started off great! We moved our studio to Olde Town Conyers and what a great idea it was! It was a thought I’d had for a couple of years, but it never worked out. We kept our trust in God, and He got everything lined up just right, so we made the move in November. Olde Town has been such a pleasant place to work, and as a bonus, it came with some great outdoor props and photography backgrounds. Keep a look out for these new scenic backgrounds to be incorporated in our Senior photography packages!

Another big thing we did late last year was hire a website and social media manager, Vicky Johnson. Vicky has more knowledge about these important areas of business than I ever will. She established our business across all major social media networks. We have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest, and LinkedIn…so be sure to follow us!

Some more exciting news is that we now have a DJI Phantom 3 Drone. What an unbelievable piece of equipment for a photographer! We will now be able to take aerial photos of events, landscapes, or anything you can image. The sky is, quite literally, the limit! We can’t wait to show you some of the incredible images and videos this quad will take.

Lastly, we will be hosting a photography class this Saturday, February 27 from 1-7PM. We will be teaching you all about ISO, shutter speed, histograms, white balance, and how to use different lenses and flashes to achieve the perfect picture. You will have some shoot time with a model, as well as outdoors in Olde Town. We still have some spots left! The class is $140. Call us at (770) 918-1198 to reserve your seat!

That’s all for now!

Senior Portraits, Breaking down the cost.

Senior Mom’s and Dad’s this is for YOU!

We get a lot of questions as we’re booking senior portrait sessions about “what is the final cost” of my child’s senior portraits. There is no “real” answer to this question. Each senior session is very unique and the final cost can vary.

The average senior parent spends anywhere from $250 to $300 on senior portraits.

 

Lets talk about the minimum cost of senior portraits.

We start with your session type. Basic, Deluxe, Elite, or Extreme. Each session type has a session fee associated with it.

Basic Fee : $25  Deluxe Fee: $35  Elite Fee:$95  Extreme Fee:$195

Your session fee is due on the day of your portrait session. Half of your senior portrait package order is due at the time of ordering. This in addition to your session fee is the MINIMUM you will pay for your senior portraits.

After we have taken your photos, your Ezell’s Girl will sit down with you for your portrait presentation. This is where you determine the “final cost” of your senior portraits. To make things simpler for our customers we have created a series of “Portrait Packages” ranging from $120 to $1,000.

Our packages are “pose” based.  One image = pose.

For example: You have selected the “Basic” portrait package for $120. This package includes ONE pose (or image) in the following sizes :  (1) 8×10 (2) 5×7 and (8) wallets.

                                ( The cap and gown portrait is considered ONE pose)

There are a wide range of options available to you when order senior portraits. On the day of your senior session we will give a 25% discount to any portrait package ordered. This offer is only valid the DAY OF your portrait session.

We are offering a June special this season. If you have your senior portraits taken in the month of June AND order photos the DAY OF your session, we will give you a BASIC package of ANY pose free!

We hope this answers your questions, but we do love to hear from you! If you have ANY other questions about senior portrait sessions our team is here to help.

Just give us a call at 770-918-1198 or email us info@ezellsstudios.com .
