Portrait Session Options

Technically speaking, all headshots fall into the broader category of “portraiture.” But since headshots are typically limited to clean, true to life head-and-shoulders images featuring the subject’s face, the realm of portraiture leaves the door wide open for so much more.


What side of yourself do you want to explore? A particular mood? How do you want to be seen and captured? Want to feature an outfit or accessory you love? A vibe? How does a specific piece of wardrobe help tell the story you want to tell? In portrait-land, the sky’s the limit. Help me help you tell that story.

And now, a few FAQs about your session:


What if I want headshots too? Can I get a combined portrait/headshot session?

Absolutely. Take $100 off automatically by combining any portrait and headshot session.


Do you require a deposit before the session?

Yes. A non-refundable deposit of $150 will be required to lock in your appointment booking. Your remaining balance will be received at the completion of your session.  

(*Zelle/Venmo/PayPal & ca$h are all accepted forms of payment).


What about cancellations or rescheduling?

Rescheduling your session to another date and time (and transferring your deposit) is acceptable so long as it's done more than 48-hours in advance of your scheduled session. Exceptions are currently being made for positive Covid tests. Cancellation of your session for any reason other than Covid will result in the forfeiture of your deposit. 


What if the weather is bad?

If we've scheduled an outdoor session, & the forecast looks ominous, we will reschedule for a future date. (Your deposit will automatically transfer to that new date).


When will I receive my photos?

Within a few days of our session, you'll receive a link to your password-protected viewing gallery.  From this gallery, you'll select the images that you'd like retouched.  

*Please anticipate up to 1 full week for retouch-delivery, but note that times vary depending upon my workload, so please inquire about anticipated delivery times.  

Need your photos sooner than that?  If my schedule allows, I will be happy to rush your order to 2-day delivery for an added fee (please inquire). I will send you high-resolution versions of these beautifully retouched images that can be used for both printing and web/social-media uploading.
