IN STUDIO PORTRAIT AND MODELING PORTFOLIO SESSIONS (backdrop and off-camera strobe lights)
1 hour – 2 outfits (suggested), Over 100 digital photos
with 6 photos receiving professional editing, for $200
2 Hours - Over 200 digital photos, the number of outfits is up to you,
12 photos professionally edited, for $300
3 Hours – Over 300 photos, unlimited outfits,
18 photos professionally edited, for $400
4 Hours - Over 400 photos, unlimited outfits,
24 photos professionally edited for $500
and so on.
A hair and makeup artist is available per request.
All portfolio sessions include editing on 6 photos per hour, though access to all photos taken during the session will be given. You can select more than 6 per hour for editing for $20 per additional photo.
A one hour session will come with many photos, usually around 100 per hour, but the professional editing applied is rather extensive and takes extra care and time. Therefore, 6 photos per hour will get edited, and further editing on any others can be purchased.
The reasoning behind the 6 photo per hour limitation is that some situations create an entire day of editing for just 6 photos. That day in editing is responsible for some of the costs.
My studio is currently in the Heights area in Houston, TX.
AT YOUR LOCATION
For an additional $50 travel fee, I can even bring the backdrops and lights to your location.
This extension of service allows for the comfort and convenience for a person to get ready in their own environment and not have to travel.
OR AN ECONOMICAL ALTERNATIVE
JUST THE CAMERA AND THE PHOTOGRAPHER SHOW UP WHERE YOU ARE, NO EDITING, AND A DISC IS BURNED AT THE END
$100 per hour, no backdrop or off-camera strobe lights. Only natural or available lighting, no editing included, but available separately. A disc with all the photos will be created on site as the time concludes. This service is highly recommended for outdoor settings or event coverage.
Further editing can be purchased on additional photos at $20 per photo.
All editing is done with Photoshop and involves a little input and direction from the client.
Prints will cost extra and the costs and packages will be discussed and made available per request. I do not print photos myself; the machinery required for a good print is significantly larger and more expensive than a desktop photo printer. I will be using a reliable and quality photo printing service.
