Photography is my second job, so contact me to set up a time that's convenient for both of us. I often have evenings or weekends free, and with advance notice, can usually schedule a time during the day as well. My time is valuable, so if you schedule a photo session, please plan to follow through and show up.
An advance deposit of $100 for one hour of photography is required in advance at the time you book your session. This amount may be applied, entirely or in part, to the purchase of prints, products, or digital downloads once your photos are processed. You may pay in cash or via PayPal (which also accepts credit cards). A credit code for use on this website will be sent to you upon receipt of your deposit.
Longer sessions are welcome, especially if you want to travel to multiple locations or try multiple outfits and poses. Additional photography time can be reserved for $50 per hour, which may also be applied toward your purchase of prints. There are no session fees beyond the advance deposit.
The advance deposit applies to events as well as portrait sessions. Event organizers may request that multiple credit codes be assigned. For example, I'll shoot a three-hour wedding reception for a deposit of $200, and can issue $100 credit codes to each of the two families represented.
After your event or photo session, each photo is individually edited and adjusted for contrast, tone, and color, a process that takes 1-2 weeks. I'll put together a portfolio of the best images and post them in a private, password-protected folder on this website, which you may share with friends and from which you may choose prints of any quantity and size from a professional photo service. You may apply your deposit toward these orders. Prints may be ordered through me and delivered in person, or, if you prefer, ordered directly from the website and delivered by mail to your door.
Available products and prices vary according to whether you're buying a fine art print, portrait, or event photo. Most are fulfilled through professional photo service MPix.com and can be delivered by mail directly to your address. Packages, canvas prints and other specialty options, digital downloads, mounting, and framing are also available for many products. Prices include sales tax but not shipping.
I do consider discounted or donated photography for charitable causes. Just ask!
