Regular Portrait Packages:
Natural Light Photo Shoot: Generally a 2 hour session (not including drive time) in a naturally lit setting (no strobes or artificial lighting). I can also offer this in film format (black and white and color).
Natural Light Photo Shoot: $25-$40
Studio Photo Shoot: Generally a 2 hour session (not including drive time) in a studio setting. You may choose from a home studio in Hilliard, OH, the Ohio University photo studios in Athens, OH or R&L Digital Photo Lab in Columbus, OH.
Studio Photo Shoot: $40-$75
Editing and Print Services: Touch-up editing comes with both types of photo shoots but if you want additional editing (such as taking out braces, changing eye or hair color, etc.) it will generally cost between $5-$10 extra depending on what you want done. Contact me about printing as there are a lot of variables in price depending on the quality, paper, amount and size of the photos you want. If you want just digital copies of the images I can send those to you free of charge.
Additional Services: Want to do some fun things with film photography? Need me to shoot a still life? Have an idea for your own shoot? Shoot me an email and we can discuss your plans and ideas and get a photo shoot that's right for you!

Booking an Appointment
If you want to book an appointment for any of the packages, please either sent me an email using the Inquiry Form or a send me a Facebook message. Typically, we will decide on a time to meet to discuss what you want out of your photo shoot and sign documents. We will also discuss what kind of prints you are looking for and what kinds of clothes you are going to wear (so I can pick a background accordingly). At the appointment it's a good idea to let me know (if you're doing any photos not in the studio) where you want to be shooting and if we need permission to be there. We can also discuss if you want any additional services tagged on.
After your appointment, we will decide on a day to take your photos. On that day, be sure to bring the check for your package, all of your props and changes of clothes and...as cheesy as it may sound...a smile.
The processing times for your photos vary with my schedule but after your shoot is over I will let you know how long it will take to get your photos to you.
Rules and Restrictions:
While I want you to have the best experience possible with your photos and want you to love the outcome of them, I do have to lay down a few rules regarding photo shoots and my processes.
- You may use the photos I take however you wish for personal use, just please DO NOT remove the watermark at the bottom or use my images for commercial use. You may use them for private use and for portfolios. If you decide to remove the watermark anyway it won't work, I have the copyright information embedded in the file. If you are unsure if you are violating these rules just send me an email and I'll answer your question!
- To print my photos yourself you must get a note of disclosure from me. That's not just my rule, that's the rules at any professional printing place (even Walmart).
- You can post my photos on your Facebook, blog or website just be sure when people ask about them to link back to me! Also, please don't remove the watermark on the images. If you must remove the watermark for sizing purposes, please let me know.
- You must sign a model consent form before we begin shooting. This just shows you agree that you won't take credit for my images as your own.
