GENERAL INFO: In the “Galleries” section you will find various types of photos from landscapes to portrait to more fine art type renditions. All of these are available for direct purchase. Just choose what you like, click the “Buy” tab and you’re on your way. Mpix, a professional photography service, handles your photos and they will be mailed directly to you. If you would like me to give a particular photo a different look, say black and white, or sepia, then contact me directly and we can arrange that.
PORTRAIT OR FAMILY PHOTO SESSIONS: If you would like to have senior pictures taken or family photos or a special photo session, simply contact me. First we will meet and talk about what you want and what you expect. This helps me to understand your vision. Then we will schedule a time and a place of your choosing, such as your home or outdoor settings like a park. The more natural the setting and the more relaxed you are the better. If extensive amount of travel is required, additional fees will be discussed and agreed upon before undertaking the photo shoot.
Afterwards, allow up to 2 weeks processing time for standard portraits. Once your gallery is ready, I will email you with instructions at how to access your photos.
SITTING FEES: Up to 2 hours of coverage at only $100; $50 deposit to secure booking with the balance required upon arrival. This will allow us plenty of time to get a variety of shots. Accepted forms of payment are by check, credit card, PayPal or my personal favorite-cash.
GALLEY CD: All images in a gallery are available on CD for $225. These images have all been edited individually and are of finished, full resolution quality.
DIGITAL DOWNLOAD: You can pick a single image and download the full resolution digital file. This is perfect for those on a tight budget and for relatives that live far away and my only want 1 or 2 images, but may want to make multiple copies of it or use it as a screen saver. You can email it or print it off your own printer-forever. This is also a perfect option for scrapbooking. The cost for this is $25 per picture selected.
