Is editing included?
All images in your gallery have been heavily edited. They have been corrected for color, people removed from the background, cotton candy skies added (if mother nature did not give us a good sunset), minor blemishes removed and cropped like the images below. This is standard at no additional cost.
Can I request additional editing?
Absolutely!! Some times advanced editing is wanted and that is called retouching. Retouching services include, tan line removal, face and body slimming, head swaps, teeth whitening, wrinkle removal, and removing hair fly-a-ways. Some sessions include retouch credits. A retouch credit is good for additional retouching services for 1 image. This service is also available per image ($35) and per hour ($75) if your session type does not include retouching.
What happens if it rains?
You can find my rain policy HERE.
Do I get to pick the 15 images or do you?
I pick my favorites and edit those, then you pick your favorite 15 of those edited images. You can buy the additional images in your gallery for $35 per image or $250 for the entire gallery. You can see sample galleries of the kind of images you can expect here, Featured Mini Session, and Featured Family Session,
Do you limit the number of people per session?
No, I do not limit the number of people. You can absolutely have an extended family mini-session just note you will only have 15 images which is usually enough to do a few whole group photos (standing, sitting) and one image of each family.
I emailed about a session, how long do you hold that date for me?
I don’t hold any date until the deposit is paid. If you have not paid your deposit, you are not booked, and your spot is not held. This is especially important in the summer where I get many more inquires than I have availability. July is by far my busiest month. If you want a July date, book early!
What is your Covid policy?
Florida requires all businesses to have a Covid-19 Safety Plan. All sessions take place outdoors where the transmission chances are the lowest. The photographer will maintain a 6 foot distance at all times. Waves hello and goodbye will be used in lieu of handshakes. If requested by the client the photographer and any of the photographer’s assistants will wear cloth masks. Clients who have been sick with flu like symptoms are asked to cancel your session and your deposit will be refunded.
What kind of photo release is included with your sessions?
All sessions come with a re-print release which gives you the rights to use the images for non-commercial purposes and reprint them as many times as you would like at any size you would like. It does not give you the ability to sell the images or make a profit off of them.
Do you sell RAW unedited photos?
Absolutely. Please note RAW image files will be sent in .nef format which computers cannot read like they can a jpg. You will need Photoshop to open RAW files. With RAW image purchases you will be given a photo release for use, print and editing the files but not to use them for commercial or resale purposes. Add on Raws to any session for $500.
Do you sell full copyrights?
Yes. 99% of clients do not need this but I do offer it. If you are an influencer and want to use the images commercially, where you sell the images or a product with the image on it, this is the type of release you will need. If you are someone who wants to have the ability to sell the images to a 3rd party, such as a magazine, this is the kind of release you will need. Copyrights can be added on to any session and are $5,000 for up to 50 individual images.
How do I pay?
You can pay by cash, check, Zelle or credit card via Paypal.
Do you offer discounts?
While I don’t offer discounts, I do regularly donate sessions, free of charge, to families you have children who are fighting cancer. For more info on that, please check out Project Gold Hope or you can Email Me directly.
