Portrait Pricing

My passion in photography is working with people.  I love to make my clients look good in pictures.  I especially enjoy surprising people who think they look awful in pictures by making them look great!

Whenever I shoot a photo of someone, I want them to be comfortable.  I do not think you can get a good photo of someone unless they feel relaxed and happy to be in front of the camera.  I am told that that my greatest skill is making people feel at ease.  Even if they felt nervous about the process of being photographed.  I strive to make the experience comfortable and fun.

There are a number of different categories of portrait photography that I have packaged.  If none of the packages below suits your needs, please contact me for a custom quote.

 Hair and makeup

I work with a number of very talented and skilled hair and makeup artists.  Even if you do your own hair and makeup everyday, I recommend that you hire a professional for your photos.  The pros know how to get your look "just right" for the camera.  Makeup for photogrphy is slightly different and requires more perfection than everyday makeup.  The cost is generally around $150 per look per pereson for this service.

If you would like to hire a hair and makeup artist, please allow me a week to coordinate the dates and make sure we can have some one available.

What to bring

  • Several different outfits that represent the image you wish to portray in your portrait.  Do you want to appear professional, sexy, casual, trendy?  I can help you choose an outfit tha will look great in photos.   Just bring some selection and we will pick something out.
  • Accessories to dress up your look.
  • If you have red eyes, consider bringing some eye drops, like Visine.
  • If you have arranged with me for a hair amd makeup artist, show up with clean hair and no makeup on.  If you are going you own hair and makeup, please arrive with your styling already done no sooner than 15 minutes before your appointment.  You can bring hair products and makeup to do touchups and adjustments here if you wish.
