Areke Worku Photography | Columbia, MO, Kansas City Family, Couples, Seniors | Investment



1 hour session including unlimited outfit changes/locations within the Columbia area and rights to print for $250.  You will receive 20 edited images in a password protected gallery, available for you to download.  This price applies for maternity, children, senior, couple and family sessions of up to 5 immediate family members.  Additional family members are $25 per person.  If our session is held at a location more than a 30 mile radius of zip code 65201, travel fees may apply. At this time, I do travel for Kansas City and Joplin sessions (on average) one weekend every month.  If you schedule a session for a weekend that I am already planning to be in one of those cities, there are no travel fees.  However, if you would like to schedule a Joplin or Kansas City session on a day that I am not already scheduled to be in town, travel fees will be incurred.  Please contact me with questions.


Newborn sessions typically last between 2 and 3 hours and include rights to print and 20 edited images in a password protected album for $325.  Please notice I take a lifestyle approach to newborn sessions and this is different than a typical, posed, newborn session.  Details about lifestyle sessions can be found on my FAQ page.  Because newborns tend to work best during the first few days of life, it is imperative that this session take place within the first 10 days after birth.  Please contact me with your expected due date to assure we are within this window of time.  The price reflected covers this longer session.  A special "First Year" package is available to follow your little one's first year.  This includes:

Full Newborn Session- 20 images

3 Months Mini Session- 30 minutes- 10 images

6 Months Mini Session- 30 minutes- 10 images

9 Months Mini Session- 30 minutes- 10 images

1 Year Mini Session- 30 minutes- 10 images

"First Year" rate: $850


-First Look (Hospital) Session can be added to "First Year" package for $125.  This session lasts about 20 minutes and offers lifestyle shots taken at the hospital.  Valid only in the Joplin/Carthage area and include an additional 10 images.

Please note: Mini sessions are not provided outside of "First Year" packages.


50% of session fee due at time of booking and remaining balance must be paid 14 days before date of session.  For "First Year" package, 50% due at time of booking and remaining balance due at 3 Month session.  Please make all checks payable to Areke Worku Photography.
