Unlike a simple snapshot, my photography is a two part process resulting in a level of excellence expected of a professional. The process starts with taking the images followed by making those raw images into finished products. The time invested on site at the photo session posing and taking pictures is only a portion of time involved in the total process. Each raw image is individually edited and fine tuned using Adobe's Photoshop and Lightroom primarily along with other applications to ensure the best possible results.
Fee: My fee is made up of two components, a session fee, and a print/media fee. The session fee covers the time, vision, creativity, expense and skills required to frame and take raw images during the actual session or sessions. The print/media fee includes the time, vision, creativity and technical skills required to produce quality finished images. The print/media fee is usually included in the session fee.
Prints/Media/Flash Drive: Almost every client has a different set of requirements for the final delivered product, therefore instead of offering predefined print/media packages, I prefer to give my clients the flexibility to define a package that meets their needs, thus ensuring everyone gets exactly what they want.
Optional Services: These include major retouching/artistic effects, photo collages, graphic design, expedited service, etc.
All prices include product recommendations and an online password protected, private gallery for review of proof images taken during the photography session or sessions.
Family portraits can generally be done in a hour at one location. Each client receives a private gallery on my website of approximately 30 low resolution, unedited images for review, further editing by me and printing. High resolution digital images and prints are available at reasonable cost.
Senior portraits seek to reflect the spirit and individual personality of young people about to move to the next chapter in their lives. To that end, their photos should reflect their own qualities and interests and I take great care to use a variety of locations, poses & outfits to make every session personal and unique.

Planning photos whether it is for a wedding, a special occasion, senior pictures, a family shoot, a Christmas card or anything in between can be confusing. The following outlines what you can expect from a photo session with me.
As soon as you decide to book a session, contact me via email or a Facebook message. I'll contact you to discuss the specifics of your session - locations, time frame and cost. Shortly after we talk, I’ll email you information on suggested locations and a few other odds and ends. You'll also find lots of useful information in my Blog on this website.
I do not accept credit cards. Once the session fee or a small deposit is paid, your session is booked. I book as far out as necessary. Fall and spring sessions go quickly, so it is never too early to get your session date reserved.
As a reminder, you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, message me on Facebook or call me at 859-473-2107 should you have any questions.
My goal is to make your photography session a pleasant & rewarding experience for both of us!
