Mini Session:  $75 for up to 30 minutes.  Guaranteed 10 images for families of 5 or less.

Master Session:  $125 for up to 60 minutes.  Guaranteed 20 images for families of 5 or less.

A retainer fee of $25  for a mini session and $50 for a master session is due at the time of booking to save your date and time slot.  The remainder of the cost is due at the shoot.

Animals included are an extra $10 per photoshoot.



All payments are due in full at the time of the shoot unless a payment arrangement (payment plans) have been made.  Orders will not be processed until payment in full has been received.


If there are any costs or fees associated with the location the client has chosen for their session, you, the client, will be responsible for those fees.  Sweet Schmidty Photography will not guarantee or arrange payment on any location.  My fee covers travel within 30 minutes of Crystal Lake, IL.  Any location outside of these limits will be subject to an additional charge of $20 as part of the agreement.


If a situation prevents a photo session from taking place, a 24 hour notice is required.  Client may reschedule their session at 24 hours prior to their shoot without penalty.  Should the client fail to give 24 hours notice, or decide to completely  nacelle the shoot, the booking fee is forfeited and will not be refunded.

Sweet Schmidty Photography reserves the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction or other circumstances beyond their control.


Reshoots are determined at the discretion of the photographer.  Reshoots and refunds will not be given for poor choices of clothing, make up, hair or weather related issues, or by not following the recommendations of the photographer.


After 4 months, all images will be purged from photographer’s hard drive, except as needed for promotional purposes to be determined at Amanda Schmidt’s discretion.  Amanda Schmidt is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond Sweet Schmidty Photography’s control.
