- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing is based off a Session Fee/Retouching/Print structure unless a specific offer is advertised. Studio headshot sessions start at $175 for Standard Headshot Packages with Retouching. PLEASE CALL FOR LOCATION SESSION RATES. Corporate location headshots are possible and quantity may effect pricing per headshot. Outdoor sessions may be higher depending upon the location and nature of the shoot so please consult me when planning your session. Session Fee includes photography time, image culling, digital proof preparation and posting images to your password protected on-line gallery. High Resolution Retouching and Image Enhancement is generally $50 per image. This rate may vary at the photographer's discretion based upon the difficulty and/or print sizes over 8x10. It is highly recommended that all finished images be retouched. A large range of professional prints from Wallet to 30x40 are available, including canvas and metal media. Money-saving package printing is available when you order a quantity of sharable prints (Wallets to 8x10) of your favorite pose. To maintain the quality of my images, I do not provide hi-res files for DIY printing of portraits. Watermarked, low-res digital files for social media are included with print orders. If you create printed scrap books on-line, please feel free to discuss your hi-res image needs.

Just call or email to get the ball rolling! Provide as many details possible concerning your project. (If you get voicemail, please leave a message!) SOLO HEADSHOTS: Call or email for an appointment. I maintain very flexible hours to accomodate most schedules. PORTRAITS (personal): Email or call to set up a phone discussion about your portrait session and to plan for locations, wardrobe, etc. ACTORS & MODELS: Email or call to start a phone consultation about your session style and what you'd like to accomplish during your session.
