All Clients are required to sign the Client Permission and Release form, either via hard copy or digitally (links are below).
I must have this signed form along with an initial payment for services of $100, which is NOT a deposit, within a week of setting up your photoshoot date. For any group photo shoot, the "Client" is the person who initiates the group photo shoot and will be the responsible party signing for all participants.
Because an initial payment for services reserves your spot so that I will not book someone else, it is NOT refundable but I WILL, in case you have to cancel, allow a second photoshoot to be booked if you cancel no later than three days before your photoshoot. If you do not cancel within the allowed timeframe, you will not be able to receive your initial payment of $100 back nor be able to book another appointment.
Photoshoot Pricing Changes:
We now are offering 2 packages for "portraiture style" photo shoots.
Package 1: Up to 2 hours of shoot time
15 fully edited digital images
4 "sheets" of prints
Change of clothing is allowed as well as change of location.
Package 2: Up to 1 hour of shoot time
8 fully edited digital images
2 "sheets" of prints
Change of clothing is allowed as well as change of location. Please note though that a change of clothing or location will be cutting into the one hour timeframe.
"Portraiture style" photo shoots are considered: Formal portraits, baby bumps, engagement, family, pets, boudoir, prom, model portfolios, and senior portraits.
Your digital images will be professionally edited for color balance, clarity, exposure, contrast, removal of any distracting elements and skin/hair touchups.
These packages will include normal special effects (black and white, sepia, painting effect) at your request on any of your digital image choices. I can also try and improve any facial expressions at your request.
Simple BACKDROP changes/ color changes has an up-charge of $7.00 per image.
"Enhanced" special effects (example removing the subject and placing them in a different "atmosphere") has an up-charge of $15 per image.
Digital images are cropped to 11x14 by default. You may buy more digital images at $10 each.
Please note that we do not guarantee the quality of any prints that you have printed yourself. We use a local, high quality photo lab when printing your images for you. Print prices are listed in the document below for any extra prints you may like.
Head Shots are billed at $150 an hour and is the cost for 1 - 4 clients. Additional clients over the first four during the same hour is billed at $30 per client. For reference, I can probably shoot 15-20 clients during the first hour if everyone is ready. Each client will receive the four image dimensions listed on the business page; all images will be fully edited and touched up.
Business Website/Portfolio is billed at $150 an hour; you will receive up to 15 fully edited digital images and will be able to purchase prints at a reduced cost if you choose to have us print images for a print portfolio.
"Parties" are billed at $145 an hour for the first three hours; $100.00 an hour after that. We bill for full hours only. You will receive all usable images of each special moment captured, or non-essential moments examples: decorations or venue shots. These images will be professionally edited for color balance, clarity, exposure, contrast, and cropped but with no special effects or skin/hair touchups.
Examples of "parties" are: graduations, baby showers, milestone birthdays, small weddings or "Garden Style Weddings" only. This is the cost of shooting the party only; any prints you may want are billed separately.
We do not shoot formal weddings.
