Commission a Portrait

Untitled photo

In Studio Package - $350.00

First, we will meet online for an hour to talk about your objectives for the portrait (what is your vision? Would you like a headshot, bust, or 3/4-length? What clothing are you thinking of wearing? Would you like personal objects to be part of the portrait?) We will also talk about retouching -- do you want to clearly show the years you've earned in your portrait? Keep them visible but de-emphasized? Or would you prefer to more actively remove those indicators for posterity? These are highly personal decisions, but I will be happy to consult with you on the pros and cons of each decision.

Second, we will arrange a date and time for you to come to my home studio to sit for the portrait. This will take approximately one hour. 

Third, we will meet again online after the sitting, and you will choose your preferred capture. I will retouch that capture and send to you for your final approval.

Finally, I will print your capture on ultra-high quality, archival photo paper in either 8.5x11, 11x17, or 13x19 format. Aside from the print, you will also receive the final, retouched digital copy. 

The entire process usually takes me approximately six hours of work, spread out over the course of a two-week period. So, you will have your portrait, in hand, two weeks after our initial consultation.

What If?

Location Package - $450.00

Everything as described above, but I will pack up my gear and go to you. We'll need to factor in a bit more time for us to scout the perfect location and test lighting.

Liked others from the shoot? I will retouch those and provide you a high-quality (TIFF) digital copy for you to keep.
