Full retouching covers any kind of skin imperfections, double chins, sliming, fat rolls, sky enhancement, flyaway hairs, tattoo removal, wrinkles, composites, and so forth. Think of it as if your photos were getting ready for a high-end magazine publication.
Light edits, on the other hand, while they still cover skin imperfections, they do NOT include sliming, no photoshopped skies, no tattoo removals, and no other time-consuming photoshop processes or composites. However, I will still edit your images to a consistent style and enhance features and light manipulation.
Lifestyle sessions are perfect for a lightly edited gallery, my aim is to capture your family on its most authentic moments without the need for full retouching.
The work that goes into each image goes far beyond just the picture-taking session, making it hard to charge what would be “reasonable” for the time you actually see me at the photo session. The time that I spend on each client from the beginning to end can vary between 5 hours for family mini-sessions, all the way to 20 hours for full newborn sessions.
A BREAKDOWN OF MY SERVICES:
Designing your session. From the moment you decide to work with me, I will scope the location(s) if necessary, asses where the sun will be located on a given day and time, come up with a plan in the event of bad weather, purchasing of props and materials if needed, advise you on clothing and styling, sometimes building or crafting something to personalize your session, etc.
Photoshoot with me and my assistant. On the day of the photoshoot, we will prepare to meet with you for the duration of the photoshoot. Depending on the type of session you want, sometimes we arrive well ahead of time to prepare.
Culling your images. After the photoshoot, I will narrow the photos taken into a proof gallery.
In some of these photos, I will use Photoshop to swap faces, smiles, and expressions to create the perfect portrait from a few different shots with everyone looking their best, thus giving you a narrow gallery that won’t be overwhelming to choose from, but will also include all the best moments and smiles from the whole session.
Depending on the kind of package or session you got, I would normally narrow the final selection down to 20-50 images for you to select from.
Full retouching. It does not apply to lifestyle family sessions. Once you select and submit your final selection, I will fully retouch each of your chosen photos, which can take anywhere between 5-40 minutes per image.
Printing your products. After you receive your fully retouched gallery, I will print the products included with your selected collection. The printing labs that I use are professional labs with very high standards and all products are guaranteed.
Assembling of your products. For newborn and complete collections, I custom design a photo album or assemble your box of prints (depending on your choice). This is included as part of your complete and newborn packages, and I personally print, matt, and package the products to be mailed to your home.
For the most part yes! With the exception of family lifestyle sessions, you will be able to select which images I get to fully retouch for you to keep.
Maternity Minis– you will be able to select the images you want me to fully edit from a proof gallery of up to 15 lightly edited and watermarked images.
Essentials collections – you will have the opportunity to select the images you wish to keep from a gallery of 20-25 lightly edited and watermarked images.
Family lifestyle sessions will be edited but will not be fully retouched. When I send your gallery with the 35 photos, these will be your final, downloadable images.
Complete collections will be delivered to you all lightly edited and those images are yours to download and keep. You will also receive instructions on how to select the images that you want me to fully retouch as part of your selected package.
I am so grateful to anyone that serves our community. For that reason, I offer 10% off Premium & All-inclusive family/maternity portrait collections and any Newborn Collections to:
- Military families
- Police officers
* Proper ID should be provided.
Discount does not apply to minis.
If you are a local hero and you need a headshot, please get in touch with me to discuss your options.
- Most of my work as a photographer lays on editing, for that reason Raw and unedited images are never shared with clients.
- Cakes and decorations for cake smashes.
- Clothing for adults.
About a week after your photoshoot, an online proof gallery will be shared with you via email. The images in this gallery will all be watermarked with a “not for public use” legend on it. From this gallery, you’ll be able to select the photos you want to keep as part of your package.
Once you submit your selection as per the instructions, it takes one to two weeks (depending on how busy I am) for you to receive your finished photos.
Make sure to book your session at least one month in advance if you need any printed materials by a certain date (especially during holiday season).
I am proud of my work and I like to occasionally post photos from my clients on my Facebook page or website portfolio. As per my photographer contract, I may use your images to promote my business. Breastfeeding and naked photos will never be used. Besides that, I do not share or sell your photos to anyone.
