  • {HELLO}Im Sarah Dickerson and Im thrilled youre considering my work to document your family, or momentous occasion! I

    take pride in my studio, which is entering its seventh year as a full-time venture. I am pleased to present affordable rates for high-level work; as well as the opportunity to shoot anywhere, whether it be a gorgeous midwestern sunset (my specialty), or within my own studio space, located at the historic downtown Liberty square.

    This brochure explains my style, process, and pricing for the most common types of sessions (family, senior, engagement and baby as well as my mini sessions). If you have any questions about customizing your portrait experience after giving this guide a read-through, I can be reached at sdickersonphoto@gmail.com and would love to chat!

    01aBoUt sdp

    With every session I strive to document you our your familys personality accurately. This is accomplished through attention to interests, desired

    environments (locations!), and style. My style is clean and classic - I love dramatic light, unique composition and true expression and work to

    accomplish these without leaning on fads and heavy editing styles.

    City, country, park, or indoors at my studio, the choice is yours and we will work together to determine the best t for your family! Have no idea where youd like to shoot? No worries, I have lots of sample images from all kinds of locations! Sessions are scheduled rst thing in the morning as

    well as in the evening to take advantage of the best lighting of the day.

    Typical SDP clients place great value on professional photography and creating lasting pieces of artwork to display in their homes.

    SDP offers high-end results at an affordable price point.

  • 02 FaMiLiesFamily sessions typically average between 45 and 90 minutes in length (depending on the age of your children) and you may change to a 2nd set of out ts during your session. Family sessions are typically shot either at an outdoor location within the Kansas City metro area or at my studio in Liberty. I have both indoor and outdoor shooting areas at my studio! Dont know where you would like to shoot? I have plenty of suggestions, based on the type of setting you prefer for your session.

    My basic pricing is a at fee that includes the session itself as well as your edited les on a USb drive with a print release. I typically deliver between 60-100 fully nished images depending on length of session. These images are also presented in an online gallery; you are welcome to order prints or other products if you desire (see page 11 for a full listing).

    Mini sessions are available on selected mini-session dates at speci c locations. Se page 10 for more information.

  • 04 seniorsIts your time! Show who you really are with a personalized session documenting your passions and interests. SDP senior sessions are shot at a location or locations (yes, we can go to a second spot!) of your choice, whether that be city, country, park, a sports venue, a coffee shop...the possibilities are endless! Upon booking, youll receive a brief questionnaire to help me learn a bit more about you and your interests, so we can develop a plan of action for your session. Dont know where youd like to shoot? No worries! There are literally HUNDREDS of spots in SDPs vault of great spots around the metro area. And, if shooting in the Liberty area, my studio space is available for some indoor photos as well. For the ladies, professional hair and makeup is also available on-site at my studio for an additional fee, if desired. Note: senior sessions are most often shot in the summer before senior year as well as the fall of your senior year. Spring sessions are available but are very limited as time will be short!

  • all-inclusive package of session and digital les withprint release $425 Senior sessions are typically 90 minutes to two hours in length (male sessions will typically be a bit shorter). I do not limit out t changes, but excessive changes can limit our good shooting light! A good rule of thumb is 4-5 changes maximum. A $100 nonrefundable deposit required to secure date/time - dates and times are booked on a rst-come, rst-served basis. in case of illness/emergency, session fee is transferable to another date within 6 months. Sessions will be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather.

  • 06 BaBies and BUMps

    The start of your family (or addition to your family!) is a time that simply needs to be remembered! SDP is proud to offer sessions to document these milestones in life as you start and build your family. From maternity sessions to the 1st birthday, cherish these important memories for years to come with a professional session (or series of sessions). The studio offers discounts on session bundles; if you desire to book a newborn, 6 month, and 1 year session, for instance, or perhaps a maternity and newborn session combination, youll save over the price of booking each session individually. Maternity sessions are typically shot around the 30th week of pregnancy, give or take a week or two. Newborn sessions are best shot within the rst 7-10 days following birth.

  • 08 engageMents

    SDP is established as one of the premier wedding photography studios in Kansas City. So who better to document your engagement session? With hundreds and hundreds of sessions in the studio portfolio, theres simply no one better to document your engagement.

    Sessions are 90-120 minutes in length, at up to two locations. Most couples choose two to three out ts for their session. Sessions include fully-edited, full-resolution digital les with a print release (average 80-100 images delivered). $550

  • pets

    Way back in its infancy, SDP started as a horse show photography studio. Therefore, pets and animals of all types are more than welcome to be a part of your session, or be the focus of your session; after all, they are a part of the family! Dogs or cats may be incorporated into family sessions, or if you wish to book a session speci cally to photograph your pet, mini sessions (page 10) are a popular choice. Horses can also be incoporated into sessions. I have a list of horse-friendly session locations, or I can come to your farm (travel fee may apply outside of the KC metro area). I am also pleased to offer farm shoots for sales and show horses as well as photography for a select number of dog agility trials each season. SDP truly does it all!

  • SDP offers brief sessions on select days through the year. Mini sessions are 30 minutes long, shot in a predetermined location. Images are presented in an online gallery from which the client may select 25 favorites, which will be posted into a gallery for digital download of the full-resolution les. $250.00

    Micro sessions are SDPs smallest offering. 15 minutes in length, these sessions are great for getting an updated family photo, corporate headshot, or a great image of your child or pet. Images are presented in an online gallery from which the client may select 2 favorites, which will be posted into a gallery for digital download of the full-resolution les. $75.00

    additional les or prints may be purchased as well - a 25% coupon is presented upon delivery of client galleries, good for 2 weeks after the date of posting of the gallery.
