Consultation and Session Fees
All Portrait sessions include an email consultation prior to the session date in order to go over the specific details of the shoot. I ask that for before each shoot, the client fills out a Portrait Questionnaire so that I can familiarize myself with the people and personalities involved and gain a better understanding of the direction that you would like your session to go in. Session Fees include Photographer’s time and talent during the photo session, as well as after the photo session in post-production where I professionally edit the images that were taken during the shoot.
It is recommended to schedule a shoot 3 weeks to a month in advance. I can book sessions earlier than that, as long as scheduling allows. There are no set days or hours, so availability is really here-and-there. Weekend availability is usually more sparse than week days.
Portraits can be taken at at your home, if you'd like. I have a back drop stand and back drops that I can bring to your house along with lights to make a sort of portable studio in your living room. Requirements for that set up are a larger open space (at least 10ft. x 6ft.) with plenty of natural light (usually a front room, or family room, or sun room works best). Alternately, Portraits can be taken at an outdoor location. I can recommend locations based on your photos needs. Note that evening outdoor photos are best because of the ideal lighting at that time of the day. Early morning lighting can also be very nice. I try and avoid any outdoor shooting between those times, however, as lighting is quite harsh and not ideal for photos.
Any location further than 20 miles of zip code 19425 will be subject to travel fees based off the additional number of miles required to travel.
After a session, photos are then uploaded to a password protected, online gallery for the client to view and choose their favorites. I will email you a link to this gallery with a password to view and a PIN to download the images. It is asked that the client selects their photos within two weeks of the gallery being posted. This helps me keep up to date with editing and getting your final photos to you.
As an artist, I take pride in creating images that help set the mood of the scene. I'll soften baby shoots, and sharpen more dramatic shoots. Warm summer scenes, cool down fall sessions. Each photo is carefully edited with professional editing software. I am happy to edit photos further upon request for an additional fee (ie. remove scars, blemishes, etc).
