We shoot 2 different types of portraits: Posed and Lifestyle Journalistic
We try to shoot a little of both each session, but some sessions fall into one catagory more than the other. Like kids, sometimes its HARD to get them to pose. :)
**Posed: Subject(s) sits or stands in a pre-determined position and takes directions from the photographer on where to move, what to do, and how to react.
**Lifestyle Journalistic: the photographer follows the subject(s) around and observes them interacting, completing tasks, or taking part in activities on the subject's own accord, as if the camera was not there. Subject(s) generally do not look at the camera unless asked to.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND HEADSHOTS ARE DIFFERENT!! Headshots are more for a commercial purpose to sell yourself, to be distributed, and are often used for print ads and advertising. You WILL NOT have the rights to use regular personal portraits in these manners! If you are interested in headshots, please check out my commercial prices.
We do NOT limit the amount of photos we take on Small or Large Packages. We DO limit on Themed Minis.
Basic editing includes: cropping, rotating, color correction, brightness & contrast correction, shadow/highlight adjustments, sharpening, & removing SMALL acne blemishes
Advanced editing will cost an additional $3.25 per image. Advanced editing includes any combo of: tanning, head/eye swapping, removing wrinkles/skin folds, body and face thinning/morphing. Not all images can be advanced edited.
Traveling can be discussed on Small or Large Packages. All travel expenses must be paid. We only shoot portraits in the evenings.
All portrait sessions require the total balance be paid at the time of booking. The price of the package plus tax acts as your non-refundable deposit to hold your date and time. All portrait assignments require a signed contract agreement at booking.
