Child Portrait Pricing
What should the children wear for the shoot?
Please feel free to bring several options to choose from. It is worth spending some time the days before the session looking for different outfits and colors. Before the shooting, we will be able to choose the best combinations together.
How do I prepare the child for the session?
Please make sure that the child is well-rested and serene before the shooting and that he/she has eaten, but avoiding excessive sugar intake. Feel free to bring your’s child favorite treat.
What should I do on the set?
Please supervise and stay near your child during the whole shoot, you may be asked to hold a prop, pull in and out the pacifier in between shots if the baby is fussy. While I focus on taking nice photos, please focus on your children’s wellbeing.
What if my child has scratches?
The scratches will be removed in your final artistically photographs. Each package comes with a different quantity of retouched images. Please refer to the price list for more information. Extra retouched images are available upon request.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule?
Your appointment can be rescheduled without charge up to 48h before the shoot. The deposit is fully refundable within a week prior to the shoot.
What is the difference between Basic Retouching and Artistically Retouched images?
You will receive all the photos taken during your photo shoot, I will edit out the blinks, blurs, and obvious ‘in-between shots’ that sometimes come with my style of direction. All the images in this selection will be treated with a Basic Retouching, they are cropped, color corrected and ready to print.
Each package comes with a fixed number of artistically retouched images. I can also retouch extra photographs for $25 per image. I like the retouching to look absolutely natural.
Good retouching is imperceivable. My retouching style retains skin texture while keeping shading and highlights natural. I will remove blemishes, smooth out wrinkles, and dark circles. Furthermore, I will be happy on request to hide double chins and extra weight, as well as whiten teeth or improve the look of your hair by removing frizzy hairs and improving the overall appearance of your hair. I strive to make you look your absolute best while still looking like yourself.
Which place do you recommend for printing?
Where will the sessions take place?
