This year I’m giving it away! Session fees are gone… I’m simply looking for you to consider your budget and decide how much time we should allocate to making your portraits.
With a $300 comittment you get 30 minutes of studio time which is plenty of time for 1 or maybe 2 outfits.
With a $400 comittment you get 60 minutes of studio time.. bring two to four outfits and maybe your pet?
With a $600 comittment you get 2 hours of studio and location time.. plenty of time for 4 to 6 outfits…
$900 – 4 hours St. Louis Landing Model Session, no limits on outfits, 10 print units – PLUS a book of your favorite 20 images.
This helps me stay focused on your needs and keeps us all moving toward the same goal – creating excellent portraits within your budget!
We’ll make 3 appointments. First we’ll set a date for your photo session… then we’ll set a time for you to return to the studio for a viewing and order session about a week after your photo session. Then two weeks later your prints should be ready for pick up!
What to wear? Clothes that fit and feel good. Solid colors… long sleeves… coats, jackets, scarves.. things that add texture and dimension. Sunglasses for all those location shots that are really cool but the light is just too harsh…
Make up. Use it. Bring it. [along with your basic kit to touch up and fix your hair while we're shooting] But less is more! I can pretty easily add tone and shading after the shoot… it’s pretty tough to remove over applied make up.
Plan on a wall portrait. Something to put above your mantle or over the sofa? Send me a snapshot of your wall space and I can simulate framed prints at various sizes to help you determine how big is too big… or how small is just too small.
Print pricing — Often times the question is simply ‘how much for the 8×10′ — most photographers would rather not answer that question simply because there are so many intangibles that make a direct comparison difficult. For instance, all my prints come with a spray sealant and textured to help them last for years. My portraits also get plenty of TLC in retouching to help us both look good. My rule of thumb in retouching is to eliminate any temporary blemish and soften any other spot that we’ve discussed. ALL my designer panels (16 inch or larger) come with the frame included! AND any print purchased as an 5×7 or larger will be added to a Facebook gallery.
