Services and Rates
What sets my work apart.....
Simply put, it is the experience and quality. I believe the service you will receive is unmatched and the look of my finished portraits is of exceptional quality. It is because of my commitment to doing so that I offer a Performance Guarantee.
Sessions- The Experience
My sessions are efficient and complete. For some, that means a 2 hour session. For others, quick and efficient is their preference. We can photograph all the different relationships of your family and you can include as many people as you would like.
Session Fee: $750 for a session at the location of your choice- home, beach, garden or any destination. There is no limit to the number of people or compositions. Payable at the time of scheduling the session.
Portrait Deposit: A $1250 deposit is due one month prior to the session. The deposit applies ENTIRELY towards the portrait order. Every session includes:
- assistance in preparing for the session including a helpful clothing guide
- a video presentation of the entire session set to music
- a password protected online gallery of your proofs within 1 1/2 weeks of the session
- an online screen-share meeting so that I can personally assist you in making your selections
- a shareable digital album of the proofs for your smartphone. Easy sharing with family, friends and posting on Facebook. You’re going to love this!
Cancellations: With one month or more notice, 100% of deposits will be refunded. Less than a month notice, the deposit payments can be applied towards a future session. If travel expenses were incurred, the balance of deposits after travel expenses can be applied towards a future session.
Services- The Quality
Wall and Tabletop Portraits Need help choosing a size?
Can be displayed singularly or as a creative grouping. All portraits are enhanced and meticulously retouched for a natural look. Portraits are mounted and finished in a way that prepares them for framing without the use of glass. Eliminating the glass maintains the fine-art look and protects the integrity of the photograph. All photographs are not created equal and these are of exceptional quality. According to my clients, THIS is what sets my work apart. They say no one else’s finished portraits looks like mine.

There is a huge variety of album covers to choose from- leather, exotics, fabrics....

I offer extended services such as framing, holiday cards and gift ideas so that you don’t have to run around getting these things done.
Holiday Greeting Cards View Samples
Our specialty is in creating the most unique digitally printed greeting cards in traditional and contemporary styles. Each client’s card is one of kind and we strive to make yours the best one on the mantle! We use the heaviest card stock available with high quality envelopes. You can choose multiple photos, custom greetings and coordinating colors. The price varies depending on style and quantity so please inquire for details.
Nothing complements a portrait better than the appropriate frame. This is so important that when your wall portraits are done, I personally deliver to your home so that we can look at frames samples in the your home, right where it will hang. For tabletop frames, you can peruse through my online store and choose from a collection of unique and decorative frames. This is of great service because many quality frames are foreign made. Therefore they are not accurately sized to 8”x10” and 5”x7”. When you order from our collection we custom fit every portrait into the frame.
While my reputation was built on exceptional service and executing the finest finished portraits, some clients prefer to have all or some of the digital files. There are two options:
- An all digital session with 35-50 hi-res files. Your choice of up to six of them retouched. All are color corrected, cropped and provided on a DVD or jump drive. $2500
- Individual retouched hi-res files are available after a $2000 minimum investment is met. $250 each
In The End
When completed, every portrait and gift item is thoughtfully and beautifully packaged. Gift portraits are boxed individually and marked for each recipient. Care instructions are always enclosed. Shipping is complimentary. And in the end, every session is backed up in multiple forms so we maintain an archive record of your session for safe keeping. An extra bonus of security.
A few things we should discuss.....
All photographs are copyrighted and are not to copied, printed, ‘grabbed’ or screen shot. Offers are not to be combined except for the Priority Client Annual Pre-Pay Offer. Items can not be exchanged for value. Session fees and portrait deposits are non-refundable but can be applied towards a session within a year. Payment of the balance is expected when order is placed so that we can begin the process right away and promise a timely delivery. Pretty simple stuff actually.
