Fees for a standard 1 to 2-hour photo session include correspondence by phone or e-mail, my time with you and your family, an assistant (if needed), use of furniture and/or decorative props, a Facebook "Sneak Peek" (if desired), a password-protected online gallery with download capability and a printing rights release.
You can be sure that the photographs you receive from me are each individually processed, with several specially retouched or enhanced if needed. Your photos will also reflect what is unique and special about you and your loved ones. I want your personalities to shine through!
For a standard photo session, you will receive your gallery of high resolution images within 3-5 weeks, with fall and spring being busiest times of the year and taking a bit longer.
