WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?

Our rates  start at $99 to book a session (in which you will get approximately 10-20 images to pick from).  All done within 1/2 hour.                                     Then the images are priced a la carte at an additional $99 / fully edited image

 

DO YOU USE FLASH ?

Yes

 

DO YOU PROVIDE HAIR AND MAKEUP SERVICES?

No, but a lot of ladies treat themselves to a hair blow out before their session. Professional make-up isn’t necessary but if you opt for it, be sure it’s natural.

 

CAN I BRING A FRIEND / SIGNIFICANT OTHER / CHILD TO MY SESSION IF THEY ARE NOT PART OF THE SESSION ?

Yes, Of coarse

 

DO I HAVE TO DECIDE WHICH IMAGES I WANT DURING MY SESSION ?

Yes. We will guide you and be your “second opinion.”The two of us will quickly get your images down to the best of the best. The last bit of narrowing down will be based on your needs and budget. We have this all happen in 1 hour because that’s the service we sell: fast, easy, simple Best Self images.

 

CAN YOU GIVE ME ALL OF THE IMAGES THAT YOU TAKE?

The short answer is no. On any given job, I may take dozens of images. I have spent over 5 years learning what goes into a great photo, and one of the things that you hire me for is my ability to cull my images and share only the best with you. We will work together to ensure that all of your photographic needs are met, and I am always open to input if you have specific moments or images that you would like to capture. 

 

WHY CAN’T I GET RAW FILES OF THE PHOTOS?

A photo begins with the push of the shutter button, but it certainly doesn’t end there. A raw image is essentially an unfinished product. Years of photographic editing experience has gone into creating the finished products you see here. Same goes for every other professional photographer you encounter. If a photographer offers you raw images, you should run the other way! A photographer offering you a raw image is like a gourmet baker handing you butter and flour and telling you to make it yourself. 

 

BUT I LOOK PERFECT AS IS!

We agree! But even the best images will need some retouching – from color correction, to adjusting the white balance, to cropping out the drunk intern dancing in the corner at your company Christmas party (we hope you checked her ID before handing over the eggnog!). We love capturing the unique look and feel of each photographic subject in the very best light possible, and one of the tools at our disposal is retouching. 

 

WHAT IS RETOUCHING OF IMAGES ?

This is where the art of Digital Retouching turns a good headshot into a GREAT headshot…
