There are a few reasons why my primary media is digital.
First, this is a digital era. Music is bought by download. Movies are streamed online. Even television shows are on a DVR more than they are watched live. My kids love books, and we own hundreds, but they're almost entirely on a Kindle.
Second, there's an environmental impact to every aspect of photography and print. If we can avoid chemicals used in processing in our water supply, air pollutants from shipping, and unnecessary use of paper, let's do that!
Finally, I try to lean toward minimalism. Yet I still have dozens of boxes of photos from previous decades. I store them carefully in acid free boxes, and attempt to control the climate around them. But, in time, they will degrade. I know that even if you love, love, love your portraits, you may not have a place for them on a shelf or a wall. (Neither do I!) By giving you the files, I allow you to control what is printed and when. This also lets you have instant access to them on social media and control when and where the photos appear in your home.
Pet Portraiture - $150
This is typically a 30 minute mini session on location at your home or the park. You can expect to receive 10-12 high resolution edited images in digital format with an unlimited print release.
Family Portraiture - $200
For a family session you will receive a minimum of 20 high resolution professionally edited images with an unlimited print release. This includes engagement, maternity, newborn, and senior sessions.
Wedding - $200/hr
With a photojournalistic approach, we strive to capture the moments and emotions that are spontaneous and natural as well as the cherished family photos before or after the ceremony. You will receive high resolution digital images and an unlimited print release within a month of your event.
Note: Hourly rate only valid for consecutive hours
(ie. 12-4pm) and cannot be separated (ie. ceremony, break, then reception).
Project Titus - complimentary
Every family should have portraits to remember their beloved pets whose time here is coming to an end either due to illness or age. However long you need,
we will be there. As always, you will receive high resolution, professionally edited images with an unlimited print release.
Specialty editing - $50/hr
Blemishes, out of place hairs, and wrinkled clothing are part of standard editing. In some cases, you have the option of additional editing. For example, we may composite images (combining two subjects from two different photos) and offer digital enhancements (smoothing lumps and bumps, color alterations, etc.).
A 50% deposit is due at the time of booking. This can be paid by mail with check or through PayPal. This is non-refundable, but I will always work with you to reschedule if something should come up. The balance is due upon delivery of your files.
Throughout the year, I may run special events on my facebook page. Keep an eye out for fundraisers, auction opportunities, raffles, and more.
For quality prints, I recommend Creve Coeur Camera to all of my local clients. They are a professional lab and you can expect the best customer service and print handling there. Online, I recommend Mpix.com. They are also a professional image processing lab and offer the highest quality prints. Please avoid the one hour photo machines. We want your photos to look their very best.
