Portrait shoots for newborn, infants, toddlers, children, families, individuals, couples, small/medium family reunions: $150/hr with option to purchase prints from on-line gallery or purchase DVD with reproduction rights for extra $100. Cosmetic touch-ups extra: $5 per photo up to 3 people per photo (see details below). This rate does not apply to wedding photo shoots.
Photo shoots for larger events (i.e. weddings, corporate events, large family reunions, etc… will be negotiated on a per job basis depending on your needs).
Details: I have taken a simplistic approach in portrait photography in that I charge a flat hourly fee per photo session ($150/hr – not applicable for head shots, weddings, corporate events, or large group/family photos) and then offer you the opportunity to purchase however many high-resolution, post-processed images in digital format from a password protected gallery set up just for you and whomever you decide to share it with. Forget about having to decide from a myriad of packages prior to or at the time of the shoot. You simply pay the hourly fee at the end of the shoot and purchase whatever pictures from the shoot you want, in any size available, whenever you want, and as many copies as you desire. Your precious images will be archived, safe, and available for future use as long as you want. If you prefer a DVD copy of your high resolution photos with full rights for reproduction then simply add $100 to the hourly fee. (Please note that the flat hourly fee and $100 DVD purchase option applies to newborn, infant, children, individuals, couples, and individual family shoots only). Photo shoots for larger events (i.e. weddings, corporate events, head shots, large family reunions, etc… will be negotiated on a per job basis depending on your needs).
Please understand that I professionally edit all of your images individually before they are uploaded into your private gallery. This means that each picture is color corrected, sharpened, saturated, and cropped (if needed) perfectly to achieve the most desirable presentation. Many photographers do not perform this crucial step, batch process this step, or charge extra for it. I believe that every picture requires individual attention to detail and process each and every one separately.
This streamlined approach allows you and your loved ones to get these beautiful images from your session delivered quickly and whenever you want simply by ordering directly from your gallery.
For your treasured photos, I also offer “Touch Up” services if you want to smooth out wrinkles, whiten teeth, lighten dark circles under the eyes, clear up blemishes, etc.. This services is usually discussed after the photo shoot is completed and pictures reviewed. An additional charge of $5.00 per touched up photo is what I am currently charging (up to 3 people per picture).
In addition to Portrait Photography, I am equally fond of Landscape Photography and have made various Art Prints available from the following Website:
Here you can purchase artistic prints, customized framed and matted prints, canvas prints, prints on metal, prints on acrylic, greeting cards, tote bags, throw pillows, duvet covers, and shower curtains.
