Individual print pricing

Although you will have the printing rights to all of your digital images and may print however you choose, I do offer individual prints which is perfect for out of town family members. I do believe that prints from a professional lab are of better quality and color matching than any consumer-based lab. You may consider ordering prints from me for large images or wall displays. I also offer some specialty products that you may not find elsewhere.

Process (How this works)

After you have contacted me and we decide on a session date, I will put you on my calendar. There is no down payment or deposit necessary to hold your spot. The session will be done at the location of your choice. Let me know what you are looking for, and I will give you some ideas. It can be anywhere you want. Sessions will be done no earlier than 2 hours before sunset (this time will vary depending on the time of the year) in order to have the light as perfect as possible for your session. On the day of your session, you will decide which package you want, and your payment is due at this time. After your session, I will review the images and choose the best ones for editing*. A few, ,select images will be chosen for black and white conversion. It should take about 2-3 weeks to put the finishing touches on your images then they will be posted in an online gallery for your approval. They will be available to you for 3 weeks to review. Once you have approved your gallery, I will put the images on a custom-designed USB drive and mail or hand-deliver to you or the images may be delivered via Dropbox. Please, please, please, back up your images to another location since I do not keep the images forever. For printing your images, I recommend mpix.com for the most professional-looking, affordable prints. I do not recommend that you use local stores to print your images because their printers are not calibrated which means the colors of your prints will not match the digital file.

*Editing – During editing, I will review all of the pictures I take at your session and will choose the ones I feel have the best combination of both technical and artistic qualities. Please keep in mind that editing is the most time-consuming part of the entire process, but it is necessary to provide you with the best possible photos.

A Word about Cropping

Images come out of my camera in a 2:3 ratio. If you print your image in any multiple of that (4×6, 8×12, 16×24, etc), you will not lose any of the image when printed. If you print in any ratio other than 2:3, some of your image will be cropped out. Please ask me if you have any doubt about this when printing large/expensive prints.

What to Wear

This is big, huge! What you wear is just as important as the location you choose. It would be ideal if you would discuss with me (or even send pictures to me) what you are planning to wear before your session. I am happy to help you coordinate the wardrobe choices.
