Sliding Scale Pricing

How it works

When you decide to book with me, I want to make it as flexible and comfortable for you as possible. That's why I offer sliding scale pricing, with a minimum, standard, and pay it forward rate. It's important that you choose the rate that best suits your financial situation and pay what feels right for you. I'll never ask you to justify your choice, and you don't need to explain anything to me. And please know that the payment scale doesn't affect the quality or experience of the photoshoot! Whether you pay more or less, you'll still receive the same service and results from the shoot and your final edited images.

Thank you to Andrea Vollgas, for help with this sliding scale verbiage.

Consider paying less on the scale if you:

Consider paying more on the scale if you:

  • are a person who experiences discrimination related to systemic oppression 

  • have medical expenses not covered by insurance, been denied work, or experience discrimination related to ableism

  • are trans and saving for or have debt from gender-affirming surgery

  • are eligible for public assistance

  • have immigration-related expenses

  • are a sex worker who experiences occupational discrimination

  • are an unpaid community organizer/advocate

  • own your home or other properties

  • have investments, retirement accounts, or inherited money

  • travel recreationally

  • have access to money and resources in times of need

  • work part-time by choice

  • have a relatively high degree of earning power due to level of education, gender privilege, racial privilege, thin privilege, class background, etc. Even if you are not currently exercising your earning power, I ask you to recognize this as a choice.  

Basic Rates

These rates are based on basic hour-long sessions and may change based on specific details of each individual shoot. Day rates may also be available. Minimum rate still out of your budget? Happy to chat.
