Yes, but please keep in mind your allotted time for your session and the amount of final images you will be recieving.
I do retouch each image individually to make sure the color, saturation, and lighting looks as it should. I strive to provide you with an entire fine art portrait collection that is one of a kind.
No and I do not allow the extra photographs to be seen as they are typically duplicates with eyes closed. I break down all of the images taken into the best collection that beautifully represents my work and your session. I fully believe in quality above quantity. These are all hand-picked and carefully edited in detail, then delivered to you as well as posted in an online gallery.
For sure! Payment plan requires a 1/2 of your session fee, with the remaining balance of due before your session. If for any reason you need a custom payment plan, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
After your session, I’m probably just as excited as you to see the images! I begin my process with culling through all of the pictures I’ve taken and save them to an external hard drive, just in case. Within the first 48 hours after your session, I’ll post a couple sneak peeks on my Facebook (with your permission) page. Make sure you like and are following my account so that you can be tagged in them and show them off to all your friends! Then, I go through and edit all of the images. Your images will be ready in about 2-8 weeks after your session via your own custom online gallery. Your gallery will remain live for 30 days to place your order. Once I’ve gathered and placed your order, I’ll make arrangements with you within 2-4 weeks to have your products delivered!!!
I’m located in Vienna, Illinois but I still call Missouri home. I do travel to Missouri (KC Metro and Central Missouri) a couple times a year and do take sessions with no travel fee during those times. For local sessions, I typically shoot around my local area unless you have a location in mind. Travel fees will apply to any session outside of the 30 miles radius of 62995.
All collections require a $100 non-refundable retainer fee, on the day of booking, in order to book your session date. Collection prices are for up to 5 people and any additional person is $10 each. I do not hold a date without a retainer and signed contract. I book dates on a first come, first serve basis.
Yes, I supply you with every image culled from your session in color as well as classic black and white. Some images look better in black and white and I use my professional and creative judgment on this with every portrait. However, as my client my most favorite photo in black and white may be your favorite from your session but in color. My goal is to make your entire collection as beautiful and unique as possible.
Hair and makeup can be added on to any session for an additional price. Please inquire within if you’d like to possibly book a hair and makeup appointment for your session!
