A PERSONAL NOTE
Portraiture should be more than capturing a likeness of an individual. A portrait should capture the personality and character of the person. Because every person is different, each sitting is designed around the sitter’s personality and poses.
Typical portrait sittings are done in the studio. Here all the variables of light, posing, and individual comfort can be controlled to the best advantage of the sitter. However, my equipment is portable, which allows me to move my studio to other locations or outdoors.
My prices are based on two elements: a sitting fee and the print price. The sitting fee covers the time required for studio lighting setup, digital camera equipment usage, photography and computer time required in processing and storing your images.
A basic fee of $75 for studio and $100 for location photography is charged for individuals and groups. Travel beyond the Dallas area is extra.
Retouching: Basic retouching is done in Adobe PhotoShop TM on all portraits and is included in the print price. Special retouching requirements will be billed at $50 per hour.

ADDITIONAL FINISHING OPTIONS
There are a number of special finishing options available for your portraits, including mounting, special finishes, and canvas bonding. Because pricing of these services varies with the sizes of the print size, I will provide a quote for you.
DVD OF IMAGES
A copy of all the images taken in a portrait session is available on a DVD for $50. The images (typically 50 to 75) will be delivered fully color balanced in JPG format without retouching.
