Traditional Beach Sessions will be 60 minutes to a Two Hours.
Large Families and Reunions I block off up to 2 Hours.
I normally have 200-400 images for you to proof.
The traditional sessions are given the best time slot in the evening which is normally 7:00-8:00PM in the summer months.
With the traditional sessions the prints you purchase are of the best quality and printed only at a Professional Photo Lab. I also personally edit all of these selections to remove such imperfections as fine lines, blemishes, facial glare, whiten teeth, remove people in the background etc. I will also include one major retouch free of charge, an example of this would be head swaps. Sometimes it's impossible to get several people all looking, smiling and the expression you love, easy answer........head swaps. I'm not talking about putting Jennifer Aniston's head on a body of your family member!!LOL, but using the same person's head you like better from a similar image. It's really a great way to get the perfect picture!!
$25.00 deposit due, refunded if bad weather prevents us from session during your stay.
*Traditional Sessions include a Free 8x10 when order is placed within 2 weeks.*
Digital/CD Only Beach Sessions are available at my first time slot in the evening which is normally 6-6:30pm. In most cases your images can now be sent to you via digital download. Time is limited to 45-60 minute Sessions. You get all the images from the session (normally 200-400) all edited for color and exposure corrections plus 15-20 extended edited images is $250.00 and must be paid the night of the session. Price is based on up to 6 people. Over 6 people add $10.00 per per person. You will also get more edited images based on total # of people over the 6. All the images will receive color and exposure corrections. The 15-20 goes another step beyond and includes things like removing facial lines, blemishes, facial glare, teeth whiten, dark circles under eyes, redness in eyes from swimming, people in the background etc. You do get to select which 15-20.
You are also allowed 2 of the 15-20 images to receive major edits. Major edits include all the above plus more extensive things like head swaps, weight reduction, fixing wind blown hair etc.
Images are all at high resolution and include a print release.
I will also give you 25% off any ala-carte or Package Print prices you purchase from me.
When opting for this type session please understand even though these are the exact same images I would use to have prints made the print quality can be huge if you don't have access to a professional photo lab.
Please allow 2 weeks on turnaround from the time you give me your selections.
You Do NOT pay the $65.00 session fee in addition to the $250.00.
Many photography sites in the area now offer digital sessions, make sure when comparing you find out what they include with edited images. Many will say they are all edited making it sound like all the images are retouched as extensively as my 15-20 extended edited. The special details for this is more time consuming then just fixing the color, exposure and contrast so just make sure you have clarified this. Whether you choose me or someone else I just want you to have all your facts, especially when this will be something you will see for many years to come.
$50.00 deposit due, refunded if bad weather prevents us from session during your stay.
**Upgrade to Premium Digital Option. Includes best lighting time slot of the evening, Unlimited time, 4-5x7's, 1-8x10 add $125.00**
Above times can change slightly depending on the sky conditions of the day. Overcast skies make it get darker a bit earlier. I can normally determine around 2:00PM the day of the session if the time will need to be adjusted.
