Portrait purchases are made after the portrait session. Both a la carte and packages are available. Packages include mostly printed options along with a few digital options. We do not have minimum or maximums. Print package prices begin at $288 and digital packages begin at $660
All real estate and corporate jobs are digital product based. You will receive the final product via DropBox. Our real estate turn around time is listed as 1-3 days. However, it is rare to go beyond 24 hours. Prices begin at $100 for a small home (under 1200 sq ft) with the average home between $150-200. We do not shoot HDR which tends to make images have a fake color and generally an odd feel. All of our images are photographed with professional lighting for the best clarity, brightness and natural look.
We have a few special plans that K Thaemert Photography has become known for in the St Charles area:
- Baby Steps – Baby’s First Year: $135, includes no session fees and a 10×20 framed photo collage at the end of the year
- Maternity Plus Newborn: $105 session fee
