Every photo session receives a free consultation by phone where we will discuss everything from wardrobe styling to location.
Session times vary anywhere from 30 minute mini portrait sessions up to 2+ hours for full modeling and themed photo sessions. The standard portrait or head shot session typically lasts about an hour. There is no limit to how many photos that can be taken during the session. We finish when the client and I feel like we have reached a good limit. You will be shown approximately (30-40 or 15-20 for mini sessions) edited proofs approximately 2 weeks after your session. Please allow up to 3-4 weeks for final delivery of prints.
Specialty gallery prints, albums and photo cards are also available for purchase.
I currently work only on location. Working on location allows me the ability to set the stage anywhere, whether it's an urban street scene, a park, the beach or even at your home. However, as my themed photography is gaining momentum I am considering studio space complete with stage, costumes and props in the near future. I split my time between the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles and Orange County, however I can be commissioned for work outside of California.
What to Wear
Color is key and bright colors look fabulous in print. If you need assistance with wardrobe I would be happy to discuss what to bring to your session during the consultation.
Modeling/Head Shots -
Having a variety of outfits is very important. If you need assistance in planning your look choices, I am an expert in style, color and design. I would be pleased to help you to develop a plan in building your portfolio or headshots for marketing yourself or your child. ***Comp cards available upon request for an additional fee, please inquire.***
Please arrive with your hair and make-up done to the location or if you prefer I do have a freelance hair and make-up artist on staff for an additional fee. See pricing for rates.
I keep a small assortment of costumes and props in stock. While I am constantly updating my collection, not every costume size or prop may be available. I will be more than happy to work with you on selecting the right look and location for your theme.
