Unlike other studios, Weld Photography does not charge more to photograph young children or pets even though they are often more challenging to capture that natural look. We encourage you to include your pet in the pictures and plan your session around the children’s best time.

Jan Weld strives to learn as much as possible about her clients by implementing a pre-photo consultation to help identify the purpose of the session, set expectations, and identify who these photos are being taken for. Consultations for shoots for senior portraits and pet portraits are best done over the phone or email. Phone appointments allow a faster, more complete understanding of your wishes and how the photography session will proceed. Be sure to mention any camera shyness or if children are shy of strangers so Jan can help ease that person’s discomfort.

Another big plus here at Weld photography is at the end of your session, your family portraits will be available on a large screen for all to see. On the rare occasion that someone is not pleased with the first set of photos, more will be taken. Everyone in the group can rate their favorites and you can order the same day for a 10% discount, or you can get low-resolution proofs in Dropbox if you need more time to decide. Our goal at Weld Photography is that everyone is thrilled with their photos, satisfaction is guaranteed!

Photographs can be made in any size! Volume discounts are available for prints or high-resolution, digital JPEG images, giving you the freedom to make your own package. Minor retouching can be done on any print or image ordered! The purchase of digital images includes all reproduction rights.
