All images are delivered through or USB and include a mixture of color, black and white, and artistically colored digital prints.  Limited color correction and/or retouching are included at my discretion.  You may request further retouching or color changes at an additional hourly rate of $50/hour.

All sessions take 6-12 work days for final delivery, except for weddings which take 30-60 work days.


 One the most cherished days in one’s life, no wedding is complete without the photos to remember it. There is nothing I enjoy more than cultivating a relationship with the couple-to-be so that I can best capture their vision and joy. Helping you preserve the feeling of the event (down to the tiniest detail) is my ultimate focus. The package below is my base price for a wedding of 100-200 people. If you are planning a larger wedding, I am more than happy to accommodate you and we will discuss more details, since there will likely be additional photographers and time investment required.

$2500 Base  Includes getting ready shots, the first look, the hours of the ceremony, couples session, family photos, reception, post processing, travel costs, and one assistant shooter. Services such as filming, album design or prints can be negotiated at an additional cost. I have found that a lot of couples love to create those items themselves by finding good deals online, and I am more than happy to refer you to professional print services. A special link to an online viewing album will also be provided. Photos will take between 30-60 work days for final delivery

Baby Session

 Whether your baby is newborn or a few months old, my goal is a peaceful and easy-going experience that creates lasting memories. Sessions can run anywhere from 2-4 hours depending on the package, taking cues from your baby’s own feeding and sleeping schedule.  I am available to shoot at your home or mine and will make extra time before the shoot to set up for optimal lighting.  Any ideas or props you would like to try and incorporate during our time are excellent, adding that irreplaceable personal touch to the photos.  Newborns are best photographed between 5 and 12 days so we can get those cute little squishy poses!  They are nice and sleepy at that age, so moving them around usually goes more smoothly.

$150 Mini Session – Includes 45-60 minutes of shooting time, post processing and 5-10 high resolution digital prints.

$300 Classic Session – Includes 2-3 hours of shooting time, post processing and 20+ high resolution digital prints.

$400 Family Bundle Session – Includes 4 hours of shooting time with baby plus photos with parents and siblings, post processing and 25+ high resolution digital prints.

STARK Portraits

These sessions are shot at a chosen indoor location with natural light, or my studio.  Please make sure face is clean and moisturized, and that if you normally wear makeup, to use minimal foundation and eye makeup.  Preferably no lipstick as well.  Remember these portraits show a lot of detail, so it’s up to you how much grooming you would like to do, or leave your face completely au naturel!

$25 1 watermarked medium sized digital copy for web use with attribution to Lara Schneider Photography.

$50 – 1 watermarked large digital copy for web use with attribution to Lara Schneider Photography.

“Alter Ego” Session

One of the most personal of photoshoots, you and I will come up with an artistic concept for a session, and then spend a couple hours on location shooting for fun or for a professional portfolio.  After spending time together, we will delve into the question, “Who are you?”, and then do a photo shoot that challenges your idea of this.  In other words, reveal quite an opposite side of who you are day to day.  Perhaps it involves a theme or style with a specific wardrobe or multiple wardrobes.  I might take some artistic license by making suggestions after we’ve discussed the look and feel of what you would like to portray, but ultimately this is your chance to let loose and free your alter ego and model!  For an example of what you might be in for, click Here!  

“…Lena, a seasoned model for many photographers, and frequently captured in her signature multi-layered black wardrobe, I wanted to do something different with her that allowed the softness of her inner and outer beauty to reveal itself…airy and light, with perhaps a dreamlike quality.”

$200 Includes a couple hours of shooting on location, post processing, and 10-30 digital high resolution digital images.

Food Photography

Whether it’s sprucing up your menu, blog, or shooting a cookbook, I would love to be a part of it!  I have been drawn to snapping shots of almost everything edible since  the “take pictures of your food” craze burst upon popular culture.  My work has been featured in online and physical publications, blogs, and the new menu at Cherry Street Coffee House.  “Food Porn,” as it were, is still a part of my daily life and keep a Food Blog with all my tasty adventures! Prices are negotiable based on hours, location, styling needs, props, and other details.
