What if I need to cancel or reschedule?
Your appointment can be rescheduled without charge up to 48h before the shoot. The deposit is not refundable.
What are the High-Resolution Digital Images?
After your photoshoot you will receive your color enhanced, High-Resolution Digital Images. I will edit out the blinks, blurs, and obvious ‘in-between’ shots, and share for your review all pictures from your session. Each package comes with a certain number of High-Resolution Digital Images that you will be able to download from your online gallery. From your Online Gallery you will also be able to select your favorite images for Artistic Retouching and the Fine Art Digital Composition. If you want to purchase more images than are offered in your package, please do not hesitate to ask me.
What is Artistic Retouching?
With the Artistic Retouching, I will remove or reduce any imperfections to improve the overall image, both background, and subject. This includes skin and silhouette enhancement for adult and maternity portraits. I remove blemishes, smooth out wrinkles, eczema, dry patches, and erase dark circles or scratches. My style retains skin texture while keeping shading and highlights natural. Furthermore, on request, I can slim double chins and extra weight. At your request, I can also whiten your teeth and improve the overall appearance of your hair. I strive to make my models look their absolute best while still looking like themselves. Please refer to the before/after gallery for examples.
What is a Fine Art Digital Composition?
With the Fine Art Digital Composition, I photoshop the subject into a scenic background of your choice from our portfolio. Options for Newborn Portraits include baskets and swings. Options for Maternity Portraits include flying silks and windowed silhouettes. The Fine Art Digital Composition includes Artistic Retouching as described above. Please refer to the before/after gallery for examples.
How long after the photoshoot will I receive my photos? Is there a fast turn around available?
You will receive your High-Resolution Digital Images two weeks after your photoshoot. From there you will be able to select your Artistic Retouching and your Fine Art Digital Composition. Two weeks after submitting your selections you will receive your retouched images.
A fast turnaround is available for an additional $100 rush fee. We will deliver your downloadable gallery link of High-Resolution Digital Images within three days instead of two weeks. After that, you will be able to select photos for your Fine Art Retouching and can also have them delivered within three days instead of two weeks for another $100 rush fee.
Where will the sessions take place?
Le Studio Portrait Photography NYC has two locations, one in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn.
Our Brooklyn studio is located at 14 Verona Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231. The 1,500 square-foot, 16ft ceiling studio has elevator access and easy parking. You will probably be able to park right in front of the building at our Brooklyn location!
Our Manhattan Studio is conveniently located in the center of the city in Union Square, at 873 Broadway, New York, NY 10003. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. It will be my pleasure to help you prepare for a session or find either Le Studio NYC location.
Depending on the package and portrait, we also offer in-home or on-site sessions for an additional cost. Experience a high-end newborn, baby, or family session in the comfort of your own home! The choice of props, scenic backgrounds, and styling is identical to studio photoshoots. For adult portraits, we can take photos at a location of your choice with equal results. You do not need to worry about lighting, as I will bring professional studio lighting equipment. On-site shoots are available for Complete and Deluxe Sessions only, in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. Please inquire for a custom travel fee if you are based elsewhere. I can travel nationally and internationally.
What are my usage rights for the photographs?
You are free to use the images from your photoshoot for your personal use and for self-promotion. Even though Le Studio maintains copyright for all photos, we are very flexible and want you to get the most use out of your photos. Please tag us on social media when you publish your photos!
