I love portrait sessions, whether in the studio, at your house or on location. My sessions are very relaxed and there’s very little posing. By talking to you, asking questions, having a laugh, I can give you photos of you being your genuine self. I’m also big-time into collaborating on concept shoots, so if you have something specific in mind, I’d love to brainstorm with you.

I shoot digitally but often use film (either 35mm, Polaroid, or medium format). I love to include film whenever possible because I think there’s nothing like it, and once you see it, you’ll most likely love it as  much as I do. In the studio, I shoot primarily on medium format (using a Mamiya 645AFD camera with a digiback).

I offer several packages that are each unique and allow you to get exactly what you want out of your photo session. If you have any questions on any of the information below, or if you have additional questions, please drop me a line and we’ll talk about it.

 

I. DIGITAL PACKAGE – $650

This is the perfect package for those who want to make their own prints, books, canvases, or all that other cool DIY stuff you’ve been seeing on Pinterest. All your proofs are included as hi-res digital files, printable to size 11×14 and you are given a printable Personal License should any lab or store question your rights. Please note that prints are not included in this package. Also included in the Digital Package are:

• About an hour of shooting, in studio or on location.

• Up to 50 proofs, individually processed in both color and black & white, individually retouched and ready to print.

• A password-protected, online gallery for viewing and sharing your proofs.

• All proofs provided in digital form (max print size 11 x 14) on a USB flash drive, and a personal license (in PDF format) to make your own prints wherever, and whenever, you like.

• You’ll also receive all proofs provided in lo-res digital form for email, personal websites, social networking sites, etc. (sized approx. 750px x 500px). [Lo-res proofs contain a small watermark that may not be removed or cropped out. The watermark on your photos helps deter photo theft, reducing the chance that someone might use photos of you and your loved ones without your knowledge, for purposes that you did not approve.]

 

II. PRINT PACKAGE – $350

This package is for those of you with bare walls who want prints now! I make my own prints, black and white and color (up to size 13×19) and they’re gorgeous. I’ll also help you choose your final photos and help with ideas on what sizes and formats would work best for the space you have. Please note that this package does NOT include hi-res digital files. Also included in the Print Package are:

• About an hour of shooting, in studio or on location.

• Up to 50 proofs, individually processed in both color and black & white.

• A password-protected, online gallery for viewing and sharing your proofs.

• All proofs provided in lo-res digital form on DVD.

• $100 print credit that you may apply to any products I offer.

• You’ll also receive all proofs provided in lo-res digital form for email, personal websites, social networking sites, etc. (sized approx. 750px x 500px). Lo-res proofs contain a small watermark that may not be removed or cropped out. The watermark on your photos helps deter photo theft, reducing the chance that someone might use photos of you and your loved ones without your knowledge, for purposes that you did not approve.

Please note: This session does not include any hi-res files, but they can be purchased separately.

 

III. COMBO DIGITAL MATERNITY/NEWBORN SESSION – $500

The combo package is for those who are expecting their first child or adding a newbie to the mix. Most clients prefer to have one session shot in the studio and one on location, but as always, the choice is yours.

• Includes two sessions: one during your pregnancy and one featuring your brand new addition.

• Up to 100 proofs (50 from each session), individually processed in color and in black & white.

• 5 medium res digital files for your birth announcements, or for small prints (they will print at a max size of 4×6)

• A password protected, online gallery for viewing and sharing your proofs.

• All proofs (from both sessions) provided in lo-res digital form on a USB drive (or provided online for you to download directly). Lo-res proofs contain a small watermark that may not be removed or cropped out. The watermark on your photos helps deter photo theft, reducing the chance that someone might use photos of you and your loved ones without your knowledge, for purposes that you did not approve. I think this is especially important when you’re sharing photos of your children online.

*Note: If you would like to make the Combo Session all digital, just add $250.

 

V. SPY SESSION  - $500

• Includes everything in the portrait session, including travel up to 35 miles (additional travel extra), and a CD of UNMARKED lo-res images in both color and black & white. Please note: the lo-res images are printable at a  max size of 2″-3″.

For information on what the Spy Session is all about, read up here.

 

RESCUE/TERMINALLY ILL DISCOUNT

Shelter animals are very dear to my  heart and I offer a $50 discount on all sessions with your rescued beastie. I offer the same discount if your animal is terminally ill. You must mention this discount when you’re booking your session. PLEASE NOTE AGAIN, you must mention this discount at the time you’re booking your session; if you don’t, it won’t be applied to your fee.

 

WEDDINGS

I no longer shoot big weddings, but I will occasionally photograph a smaller wedding, something like a backyard wedding, or at the courthouse. For weddings, I usually shoot for two hours (3 max) and include processed digital files in both hi-res for printing and lo-res for social media.

 

All sessions, prints & print products are subject to CA sales tax.

    Lisa Nicole - Hello! I am getting married Sunday Nov. 9th at the Japanese Garden here in Long Beach, CA. We need to secure a photographer for a 5 hr block. Digital files only. Please advise if this is something you’d consider, as it will be a smaller wedding at 110 ppl. Thank you! :) ReplyCancel
