What does my session fee include?
Your session fee includes the time and talent of the photographer and image preparation which takes an average of six to eight hours post session. Keep in mind that you are working with a custom photographer, thus unlike department stores or photography chains, you are receiving individual attention and the ability to customize your session to fit your needs. You are also receiving a private online gallery to view your images and pre-session and post-session appointments.
Do you shoot in black and white or colour?
All images are taken in colour and can later be converted into black and white.
Why is my child's head "cut off" or why is my child "off centre" in an image?
The image composition of a photo is regarded from an artistic perspective . Sometimes images are cropped close in order to bring attention to your child's eyes or are off centre to give the image more impact. Of course this is not done in every photo and you get a variety of crops. Depending on the image, the crop may be altered to suit your needs.
We had a photographer that charged $100 and included all digital files, why are your files so much more expensive?
I am a custom photographer and therefore every session is custom and I take time to edit my images extensively so that when they are printed, they are top quality. Furthermore, the amount of time and effort that goes into producing a timeless image goes beyond simply taking a photo and printing it. The creative process and the post production of the photograph must also be considered when deciding to book a custom photo session. I take my time with each client and form the session around their needs and desires while using my artistic talents to produce images that they will enjoy for many years to come.
