Pricing - Michael Herb

Create the perfect Portrait Session in three steps.

There is no one size fits all, not in photography and definitely not in clothing. Therefore we don’t try to shoehorn anyone into rigid, predetermined tiny little boxes. We have a unique system for creating a photographic experience that is perfect for you in every way possible. Therefore we have separated the process into 3 steps. We’d call them easy but we’ll let you determine that.

  • Step One: Choose your session length.
  • Step Two: Choose you favorite images.
  • Step Three: Choose your prints.


It’s that easy. However, if you need assistance we are happy to guide you through the process.

Step One - Choose Your Session

The Mini - $250.00

The Mini can work for any number of photographic purposes. From a quick headshot, senior portrait, engagement or even a new social media profile photo. Dating profile photos can make or break your chances of getting a date. Your photo is your pre-first impression, first impression!


  • 1 hour on location
  • 1 Outfit
  • 1-2 People*

Standard Full Session  $475.00

If the Mini Session seems too Mini than this one is for you. In 2 hours we can fit in twice as much creative fun. These types of shoots are great for Trash the Dress, Engagements, Bridal Portraits, Environmental/Occupational Portraits, Creative People and Pet Portraits and More. Inquire for more Details.


  • 2 hour on location shoot (one location)
  • Up to two outfits
  • 1-2 people
  • Private Online Photo Gallery




The Athlete  $499.00

When participating in a sport you often become a different version of yourself. Be it, a stronger, more confident or more energetic version. Capture that essence and have it look as if you are a top Pro. Don’t settle for boring when you can have an eye-catching, vibrant and intense image of you doing what you love.


  • 90 min on-location shoot (one location)
  • Still Portraits and Action Shots
  • 1 person
  • 1 Sport
  • Private Online Photo Gallery


*Sports Portrait often require physical activity past that of a normal shoot. Please allow adequate time to warm up and cool down before and after shoot. Not recommended for before church or right after an all you can eat buffet.



Step Two - Choose your Images



You wouldn’t buy a car without seeing it and we don’t expect you to know how many photos you'll fall in love with until after the shoot. However, you are free to build your whole package ahead of time or piece by piece. The choice is yours.

Choose only the photos you want and none other. In other words... No required minimum! If you only like one, which in our bias opinion is near impossible, well, then you only have to buy one photo. However, save money and choose from one of these packages. A la carte images are $65.00 per image

Step Three - Choose Your Prints



For those born before 2000 or Hipsters, we offer a taste of nostalgia or as some would call it "tangible proof".  Prints are those sheets of paper that don’t require power and can’t display moving images. I know, boring right! Au contraire young buck, prints are amazing! They don’t react to solar flares, power surges and don’t complain about low storage space. You can hang them on the wall,  put them in your wallet or on your refrigerator. Prints are available A La Carte or you can select one of the following print packages and save a few bucks

Session Add-ons

You're in the checkout line, your list is complete but that candy which is too conveniently placed to be a coincidence is staring you in the face. Do you grab it? Do you have the willpower to say no to that delicious, creamy chocolate and nougat? You slip the candy bar to the front of the conveyor. You swallow hard, feeling a confusing mix of guilt and excitement. This is why you love shopping without the kids! The cashier and you lock eyes as if telepathically agreeing that this one's not going in the bag. That candy bar is like a brief vacation to a tropical island. You briefly show concern about the milk and eggs in the back of the car that must be over 100 degrees but quickly burry that thought as you take the last few bites. You then throw the wrapper into the empty Starbucks Frappuccino cup that has been sitting in the cup holder for a week. No evidence, no crime right?

Here are a few "candy bars" that you might want. A bad analogy? perhaps. Did it make you laugh? Not if you are a stone cold killer. 


Additional Hours 

On average an hour of shooting can result in anywhere between 50 and 75 raw photos for a single person. That number drops a bit for every added person in the frame. From that 50-75 you'll probably fall in love with about 3-8 images. We assure you, this is perfectly normal. Adding more time is like supercharging your session as you are already warmed up, couched and feeling like a superstar. Every hour after the first typically results in the number of "OMG I love that one" going from 8 to about 12-15 or if you are a teenaged girl the number goes to near 1000. 

  • At time of shoot (schedule dependent) - $225.00
  • With 24 hours notice or more - $200.00


Additional People and or Pets

With every added person or Animal the time to pose, position and compose the shot increases. Additional People for any session are as follows
