Kristin Greenwald Photography {kgP} » Modern Lifestyle Portaiture :: Birmingham, Michigan + Macomb, Michigan

Lifestyle Portraiture Pricing


I shoot lifestyle sessions, meaning you in your environment just being … you. All sessions take place on-location, where I come to a place of your choosing: be it your lovely home, a scenic park, a fabulous hotel suite — you name it!

Because I’m always asked, I’ll tell you that my favorite shoots are always in places with an abundance of natural light {think outdoors and big windows!}.  With that said, I’ll always have my lighting system with me and, unlike many others, I am not solely a natural light photographer.  If you aren’t quite sure which locale to choose, we can collaborate and come up with something incredible together. I have lots of ideas that will make for a fantastic custom shoot!

As I mention in Meet Kristin, in addition to pouring my heart+soul into {kgP}, I also have a fab career in Corporate America 9-5p. As a result, my weekend appointments are reserved for weddings, events and personal time — as such, I shoot portraiture Monday to Thursday. My absolute favorite time to shoot is either right at sunrise or beginning two hours prior to sunset. The light is so soft and ethereal this time of day — truly AHmazing! The majority of my portraits are shot prior to sunset, but if you have a little one that does best early in the morning, please let me know and we can work together to ensure that we set a time that works for everyone.

As space is somewhat limited, I encourage you to contact me as early as possible if you do know you are going to want to book a {kgP} sesh. Trust me! It’s never too soon to get a date on the calendar. And my lovely moms-to-be, your newborn sessions should be scheduled in your 2nd trimester if at all possible! With this said, even if you think you’ve missed the window, please do contact me. Life happens and sessions are rescheduled last minute, so I may still have availability!

Each {kgP} lifestyle session requires an initial investment of $500 {$250 due at time of booking and $250 due one week prior to your session date} and includes the following:

Your images are a work of art and are unique to you. That is why I pride myself in offering fabulous custom products made with my clients in mind, including mini accordion albums, images boxes, story boards, albums and announcements. Please contact me for a detailed price list and with any questions.

Once we agree on a session date and time, payment is due within one week of booking to hold your session date. Payment may be remitted via check, PayPal, or Chase Quick Pay. You may let me know your payment method when booking, and if your preference is PayPal, I will email you an invoice.

Life happens. If you have to cancel your session, your payment will be applied to a rescheduled session as a one-time courtesy. The initial investment is non-refundable. If you choose not to utilize the product credit included with your session purchase, there is no refund or reduction in price.

I loveloveLOVE shooting sweet, newborn babes! I fall in love over and over again each time I am honored to meet a new little one. What I have also found is that my heart belongs strictly to lifestyle sessions. For me, photography is all about capturing both the light and the emotion. It is the love between a family and their new addition that truly fills my heart and that is why I no longer offer stylized or posed newborn shots within my newborn sessions. I do not bring props, blankets or backdrops to our shoot; I capture your family and your little babe as you are.  My goal with newborn photography is to preserve these fleeting moments as your reminder of what your day-to-day was when your child was new to this world, as that will change ever so quickly. Still not quite sure what I mean by a lifetyle newborn session? Come check out one of my favorite sessions to date here.
