Whether you're interested in a wall gallery of family photos, or an album to enjoy for a lifetime, we'll work together to create printed artworks that you will enjoy every day, and will stand the test of time.  


Philosophy

Print Your Photos!

According to the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), almost 70% of people NEVER print their digital images.  Leaving digital photographs in electronic format puts them at risk of file corruption, viruses, theft, and hard drive failure.  In fact, according to BackBlaze, a computer backup service, roughly 5% of hard drives fail in a given year.  How many years will you have before your digital images disappear?  How long before technology change makes it impossible to access them?  Will they last until your children are grown - so that their children can enjoy them too?       

What you would take on your way out if you had to evacuate your home?  Your family photos.  Pictures are precious, and eventually priceless when someone is no longer with us.  I'm happy to assist clients with any printing need, from advice to ordering from a professional lab.    


portraiture

Portrait images are fully edited to be the best they can be.  The shoot and the edits will be tailored to meet your goals, which we discuss in advance.  Portraits are typically taken during the 'golden hour' just before sunset, which offers the best light.  Your favorite images will be chosen from an online proof gallery, viewed in the comfort of your home, and you'll have the ability to give input on each image you decide to include in your set.  

The portrait session fees area all-inclusive and include the following:

  • A brief pre-shoot design consultation, where we discuss your goals, and any special considerations.

  • The session itself, plus preparation of the images for viewing in the online proof gallery.

  • A private online gallery of your favorites for sharing with family and friends.

  • A specified number of high-resolution, fully retouched digital portraits

Session Fees:  Range from $450-$1800.  Contact me to discuss your family's needs, and I’ll put together a proposal.  


headshots

Professional head shots are fully retouched but look completely natural.  Choose your favorite image from 5-16 proofs.  Additional images available at $55 each.  Files will be sent in web and print size, color and B&W. 

At the Studio Office:  $95.  

Offsite:  $375 offsite at an East Cobb location.  

Groups Offsite:  $95 per person, minimum 4 people.  


corporate 

Corporate events are photographed to tell a story, capturing the speakers, details, venue, and of course attendees enjoying the proceedings.  The price includes a pre-event consultation to discuss the client's specific needs for imagery and delivery.  When an event is booked, the following day is also reserved for editing so the client receives the images as quickly as possible.  A private online gallery is available upon request for the client's use.  Additional hours onsite are billed at $150 per hour.   

Half Day (4 hours onsite):  $750.  

Full Day (8 hours onsite):  $1350.


General Notes

Photographing children requires patience and experience to hold their attention, and to preserve a good mood until we've got the material we need. Sometimes parents find it stressful, believing it's a one-shot deal and striving for perfection.  It's neither - if a child doesn't co-operate and we can't get what you were hoping for, we can arrange for a re-shoot.  Plus, the best images are not 'perfect', as they smilingly hint at the loving chaos that is family life with young children.
