A few weeks after your session, you will be invited back to my studio for your Reveal and Ordering Appointment to view your gallery of photos and select your favorites. I will help you design the finished products for your home.
During your session, I will pose and guide you so that you look your absolute best in front of the camera. Your session will be relaxed and fun! I will then carefully review, edit, and retouch the best photos captured.
We will first meet for a consultation at my studio, where you will learn about the process, view products and pricing, and then book your date on my calendar. We will then plan and customize every detail of your session.
Acrylic Prints are vibrant displays designed to hang on the wall or be placed on an easel. The image is mounted behind 1/4" or 1/8" clear, glossy acrylic.
Flat Metals are designed to be displayed using an easel or to hang on the wall. The image is printed directly onto the metal surface using an emulsion process.
Curved Metals are free-standing. The image is printed directly onto the metal surface using an emulsion process.
The acrylic block is a decorative item designed to be displayed on a mantle, end table, bookshelf, or desk. The photo is mounted to the back of a 1" thick, clear, free-standing block.
Canvas Gallery Wraps are designed as wall art for your home. The image is printed directly onto textured canvas material and coated for protection. The canvas is then stretched around a wooden frame, stapled, and finished with your choice of backing and hanger.
Albums are the perfect way to get all of your favorite photos in one place, and are a true luxury keepsake. You'll be able to select from several options such as size, cover material, imprinting, and more. Photos are printed directly onto the sturdy, lay-flat page spreads, and then finished with a protective coating. The layout is thoughtfully designed by the photographer with your input and approval.
Prints (sold individually) come ready to frame, mounted on matboard (up to 8x10) or styrene (11x14 and larger).
Gift Prints are sold in sets of the same image and are loose/unmounted, ideal for giving to family and friends.
Wallet Prints are sold in sets of the same image and come in a metal case.
We'll combine your wishes with my vision for a portrait photography experience that captures your unique style and personality. After all, you're hiring a photographer to document an important time in your life! I'll get to know you on a personal basis so you feel comfortable during your session.
EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE
With 10+ years in business, I have the experience necessary for professional results every time. I'm also formally educated in photography, art, and digital design. As a testament to my skill, I have had my work selected for publication by multiple leading industry magazines.
I use professional cameras, lenses, lighting, and computer software in order to produce clear and sharp photos with proper exposure and color. In addition, my computer monitor is calibrated to ensure color accuracy of prints.
TIMELESS & CONSISTENT STYLE
I take pride in my timeless editing style and expert retouching. I'll make you look like the best version of yourself, while maintaining natural tones and realistic texture. I believe that editing and retouching are an integral part of my art, and therefore I do not outsource to third-party editors. You can be assured that your finished images will be consistent to each other and consistent with my portfolio.
BACKUPS AND STORAGE
I always carry backup equipment, record to dual memory cards in-camera, and utilize a redundant electronic data storage system.
LUXURY PHOTO PRODUCTS
A portrait is a work of art you should be proud to display, hold, and share. I have carefully chosen each product I offer for quality and longevity. Printed products are made in the USA by vendors who exclusively serve professional photographers and who use the finest printing technology.
GREAT LOCATIONS & BACKGROUNDS
I know all the best spots for portraits, and am inspired by unique backgrounds or unexpected places. From fields of wildflowers, to beaches and rivers, to downtown alleyways, or my studio, you’ll have plenty of options to suit your style. We can use my suggestions or another location of your choice.
To achieve the aesthetic as seen in my portfolio, I encourage my clients to dress in unique, formal, or on-trend outfits. We will discuss ideas for clothing and accessories, and I will advise you on what colors and styles will work best with each location and background. I'll share my Style Guide, Pinterest board, and favorite places to shop, and you will have exclusive access to the studio Style Closet!
SIMPLE & TRANSPARENT PRICING
I value simplicity and transparency. I keep pricing simple, with no complicated packages, so that my clients receive exactly what they need and want. You will see all product prices before committing to a session. The typical investment is reflective of actual client orders, which include a substantial number of products and images. Prints and digital images are available for purchase.
SERVICE & FLEXIBILITY
My business model is low-volume so that I can maintain a personal level of service and flexibility in scheduling.
LEGAL AND INSURED
I am legal, registered, and fully insured. I am a professional who is invested in my business and committed to my clients.
