No Session Fee Photography

What is a no session fee photographer? At Big Apple Portraits we guarantee you will love your portraits or you do not have to make a purchase. There is no upfront fee. No $350 spent before you walk in the studio. No cost to take the portraits. Most of our sessions are a no cost 30 minutes. After your session you join us for a reveal in the studio and only purchase the photos you love. All the package pricing is all-inclusive. Your session is free and your package is the one that fits your needs. There are no hidden costs or payments. We know kids are kids and families do not always function as planned. We want to take away the risk and stress to make sure that the smiles are the highlight of your session – not the fee.

Introducing Niyam

We recently had new clients, Candace and Vinayak, come to the studio with their new baby boy.  He was such a sweet little thing.  He was wide awake when we started shooting and quickly fell asleep for most of his session.  All the while, giving us the cutest little smiles.  We wish the whole family the best of luck on this wonderul journey.

Introducing Niyam.

Our new policy will be:
  • We store your photos here in studio for up to a year and will then be deleted.
  • Your most recent session will be available in an online gallery for 30 days after your ordering appointment.

Introducing Brooke

It’s always fun when we have pregnant mom with big brother during the holidays to make cards and then meet the new little sister when she arrives.

This session was a dream, in the very first pose and very first set up, new baby Brooke started with a GIANT smile. Big brother Brandon was gentle and calm. He just wanted to smoosh his face into her. We agree, her little face was irresistibly kissable.

Introducing Brooke.
