All-Digital Packages Overview

You want 'em, you got 'em! The vast majority of our clients want digital files they can use to make their own prints (usually 5x7 to 8x12 in size) – so we include a certain # of your favorites with every package. Want larger wall art or keepsake albums? We can help you there too – just ask (or check out the "classic" package below). 

The packages you see on this page apply to ALL portrait sessions: Family Portraits, High School Seniors, Casual Couples, Maternity and Newborns / Babies. Life events like birthday parties, sweet 16s, bat mitzvahs, etc. are a little different – contact us for a custom hourly quote.

We're used to working with people who are a) not professional models, and b) may not feel completely comfortable in front of the camera. Our goal is to make it a fun, low-stress and easy process. Chris (owner of GoodEye) has three kids himself and a deep well of patience to draw upon. We often bring lighting equipment during the shoot to ensure that magazine/editorial look that we're known for; but even if it's a windy day and we use natural light only, we're confident you'll really like what we can do for you.

The following packages are all-inclusive, covering travel, photographic coverage and creative direction, professional editing/retouching, online galleries for sharing and electronic delivery of specific #s of hi-res files* for safekeeping:

Classic Print Package: $399

For those who would rather see their photos hanging on the wall every day than stuck on a computer somewhere. This is the "classic" service that GoodEye provides. After the photo shoot, Chris will come to your home in person to present the photos and guide you through the process of picking the best way to present your favorites in your home – including sizing specific wall spaces for appropriate products. Chris helps make difficult decisions as easy and stress-free as possible. And as with everything, the pricing is up-front and transparent. No gotchas! The best part of this process is when I personally come to your home to present the results!

*Nitty gritty details

  1. The process in a nutshell – a) book the package that best fits the location(s) you want to shoot at + about how many photos you want to keep from the session (only the “Hang with Chris” package includes ALL the files, you must choose your favorites from the other packages), b) we coordinate the shoot location and timing to make sure it all goes perfect, c) I’ll present the results in person or online, and you can choose your favorite photos to keep and do with as you wish.

  2. If you’re local to the Bay Area, I usually prefer to present the edited photos to you in person (see my process here); if you’re not local, then I present photos via temporary online proofing gallery, which gives everyone about a week to put in their orders (with extensions by request).

  3. The hi-res files we include with every package are 3,600 x 2,400 pixels in size, the exact dimensions for an 8x12 print @ 300dpi. Clients that want wall art (larger than 8x12) or albums or want to see bulk digital file purchase options can review our product pricing guide.

  4. In general, payment-in-full is required at time of booking and is non-refundable (but fully transferrable). Prices subject to change during busy season. Prices locked in at time of booking.

  5. The length of the session is as long as is required for us to produce 2-3x the number of proofs that come with the package. In short: we are efficient and quick, but will keep working until we know we've got a great collection of images for you to choose from.

  6. From May thru October, session availability is typically limited to weekdays only (and I discourage friday evening as beaches / public spaces can be busy then). Check availability here. Feel free to call (831) 216-6210 to discuss scheduling or any other questions you may have.
