What's NOT included in my sitting fee?
DIGITAL IMAGES You have spent a great deal of time seeking the right artist for your project and we do not want to leave you at the end of the shoot with your hands in the air wondering if the box stores will do a great job at nailing textures that are durable and colors that won’t fade out. Also, any package purchased will include the digitals you've chosen. We work with several of the leading printing labs locally and nationwide which offer high end albums, prints, gifts and heirlooms to memorialize your legacy.
When do I get to pick out my printed images?
Within 7-10 days after your session you will be sent a pre-touched digital album featuring the best of the best images made from your experience. There you will heart your favorites that will be used for your album, wall prints or gifts prints selected. You'll have plenty of options to choose from for preserving your photoshoot.
Prints, albums and gifts can take anywhere from 3 weeks to 6 weeks to deliver. The scope of your package and the vendor who produces it will determine the duration of time needed. Some album packages are produced in Italy and may add additional delivery time.
Can I just buy my files and print them at the local box mart type store?
High Resolution Edited Digitals can be purchased Ala’ cart . There is an hourly fee for editing. RAW images are not a deliverable option.
All Packages ordered will include the associated digitals. We would prefer that our work is printed through our vendors to ensure the integrity and quality of the work suits the standards in which we have set for the images we have taken the time to produce.
Why don't you have exact pricing and package list here on your website?
Totally fair question. Our studio has several collections. If you like our work, I promise we have something you can afford, but I want to make sure we are a great fit for each other, so we need a little more info about your dream shoot and how you wish to display and preserve your gallery to give you an accurate quote.
Not everyone wants an album, not everyone wants wall prints. This way we fit your needs instead of trying to fit everyone into the same box.
What do you mean by wall art, albums, cards, portrait collections and heirlooms that you can order for your home, loved ones or business?
Custom ordered items are also available. Please inquire for a quote if you don't see what you are looking for.

Why does photography seem so expensive?
Photography may seem expensive to those who don't value it as the art that it is. So much goes into capturing a photograph and making an image.
Most clients never see all of the work that goes on before and after a shoot. You can not think of it as you're only paying for a piece of paper, metal, acrylic or canvas with your picture on it. There is no way to put a price on what people value as important. Having quality heirlooms and a pampering glamour or fun conceptual portrait session ties into what someone may value as a high standard for them. So it's important that we educate our clients and everyones expectations are clear.
What if I want to shoot someplace privately owned or unique like a hotel or State Park?
All permits, permissions and releases for the photographer to photograph in a specific location is the responsibility of the client.
We will always do our best to assist with location selections. However some businesses require paid for permits and releases to do professional photoshoots on their property in their open spaces considered for other guest. Depending on the location a permit can take days, weeks or even months to get approved. Any disregard for obtaining the proper clearance can result in a fine. The fines associated with these types of infractions can be astronomical and should be avoided at all cost!
Well I'm confused... If I paid for my pictures why don't I own the rights to them?
Under U.S. law, copyright in a photograph is the property of the person who presses the shutter on the camera. In the United States Photographers/Artist own what they make. It is the intellectual property of the creator and ownership legally belongs to the Photographer/Artist.
Although this is the case, as a courtesy the privacy of our clients will always be considered first. Any images used for marketing, advertising and promotion will be submitted to the paid client'(s) in the images for their approval.
A copyright release agreement has to be granted for a client to have permission to do what they want with their photos. A photographer can grant limited or unlimited license to clients or commercial businesses at their own discretion. You should know that there are a lot of labs that will not print your images without a signed copyright agreement from the photographer who made them.
