What types of portraiture do you do?
I take a wide range of portraits, anything from professional head shots, to newborn sessions or maternity shoots. I have even been on call for delivery room photos! If there is something you are interested in, I am always willing to accommodate.
What are your rates?
For portrait photography, I charge $50 for a half an hour session.
Do we receive all of the images you capture?
You receive about 99% of the photos that we shoot.
We eliminate any duplicate images, test shots, and missed focused shots. Other than that, you receive every photo we’ve taken throughout the shoot.
How many images will I receive?
For portrait shoots, you will receive anywhere from 10-25 images in a half an hour shoot.
How will I receive my images?
Every image you receive goes through the post-production process. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections. Many photographers will not post-produce any images, or will only post-produce “select” images. I believe that you want every photo you receive to be at its best, so I touch each and every photo. .
Each session comes with full resolution image downloads. However, we typically do not provide RAW (unprocessed) files from our shoots because we only want to deliver a fully finished product. Although, if you do require certain RAW files for certain images, I am completely willing to accommodate.
Can we provide a shot list or a must take picture list?
Yes of course! It’s very helpful to know exactly what your style is and I am willing to accommodate. If there’s a specific picture that you’d like to emulate, let me know!
How long does it take to get my pictures back?
For portrait sessions, you’ll receive your photos within 24 hours.
What rights do we have to digital prints?
You retain the rights to all of your images, so you can download, print, and share the photos as many times as you like. Although, I retain the copyright to the images and reserve the right to use them for promotional purposes, competition, professional review, and so on. If you wish that specific photos are not used for these purposes, all you need to do is ask!
What if I lose my images?
If you lose your images, just let me know. I keep all images indefinitely and they are backed up several times over multiple hard drives. I never charge a fee to resend images.
How does payment work?
For portrait sessions, I require payment to be made prior to the start of the shoot.
