Ideal Portraits

STUDIO SHOOTS 1.75 hours. $285.
In studio, I can shoot with only one person at a time. Also, my space is small; please try to not bring more than two guests/observers.

OUTDOORS 1.25 hours on-location. $285
SHORT SESSIONS 30 minutes in my studio. $185
Expect 2-4 images (not the usual 10-20).
You may want a short session if you only need a headshot, or for pictures of your young child that may grow restless.

HOW MANY PICTURES? You should expect to receive between 10 and 20 pictures, provided on disc (which you'll have to pick up), or via .zip--if that's convenient for you.
PAYMENT AND IMPORTANT INFO. I do not charge extra for a digital copy (disc or zip) of the images, or for a print release. The session fee is due before you leave. All prices listed are before tax. I only accept cash and local checks, no credit cards.

I do not offer refunds, unless your pictures are lost and I'm responsible for that. Once your pictures are delivered to you, I'm no longer responsible for them. However, I aim to always keep a copy.

I want you to be happy with your pictures. If you feel that your pictures are unpleasing, please ask if I'll do a reshoot.

You're free to post your pictures on the internet and have them printed somewhere else (ask me for a print release), but not to sell them or use them for ads.

You'll have to sign a form (model release) acknowledging that I have full rights to the pictures; to reuse them in my portfolio, for example. If I'm working with a minor, a parent or legal guardian will have to sign the form. If the parent won't be present during the shoot, the form must be signed before the shoot; ask me to send a copy for you to print and sign. If you'd like to see this beforehand, please contact me.

I have an adorable black lab mix that loves meeting new people. He's in my studio, which you should know in case you're allergic.

If you're taller than about 5' 8" and we're working in studio, I'll have to take your pictures with you sitting.

My goal is to have your pictures edited within two weeks. Typically, they're done within days. And if you need your pictures sooner, let me know your time frame before we do the shoot. Your pictures will likely have my business mark on them, which you can see in my galleries.
