PERMITS (FOR ON LOCATION PHOTO SHOOTS)
The City of Houston has become stricter on professional photography at some public parks/venues and there is a possibility a permit is required to photograph. The price varies for securing a permit and is separate from the session fee.
PHOTO ARCHIVE FEE
Photos will remain online in private photo gallery for 60 days after the portrait session. A $50 archival fee will be charged to repost digital album downloads.
Each photo session has its own identity and the main goal of the photo shoot is to make sure you were satisfied. In order for that to take place, there has to be mutual interest in what’s going on. I’m saying this to see what ideas you may have and what your vision for the photo shoot is.
Photographs are edited to cover lighting and technical camera issues. Photo retouching is in place to remove minor blemishes and even skin tone. If you require detailed retouching such as for excessive acne, teeth whitening, or cosmetic purposes; the fee varies. Turnaround time for retouched portraits varies per image.
PHOTO SESSION: ADDITIONAL PEOPLE
No more than 1 person is allowed during the photo session. Time/space is limited and additional people can be a distraction while photographing.
POST PRODUCTION: PROOFS
After the photo shoot, online proofs of the images will be available via web within 3-5 days. You will be sent via text and/or email a link to access your private online gallery to make your final selections to edit. Proofs will have minor editing. Do not share/post the unedited proofs on social media or on the internet. Doing so is a direct violation of the contract and may result in legal action.
POST PRODUCTION: EDITING/TURNAROUND TIME
There is a 2-3 week turnaround time for editing once you make your selections from online proofs. Please be aware of processing times when booking your photo session. Rush orders are not available.
POST PRODUCTION: FINAL EDITS/DELIVERY
Your final selections will be submitted via digital download and/or electronically via .zip files. You have the option to purchase prints, products, and or licenses at an additional cost.
The session fee is for the service of taking photos only. Please note: Your session fee does not come with any digital images. Digital images, prints and other products are priced separately from the session fee. The session fee is due at the beginning of the session or earlier. If there are no technical errors (i.e. camera malfunction) and you are not satisfied with your proofs, 1 re-shoot will be scheduled at a reduced rate.
Please arrive on time and ready to begin your session. The time quoted includes time for changing outfits, re-applying makeup, and any other client specific needs. Keep hair/makeup appointments and traffic in mind before scheduling your photo session. Session will be cancelled if more than 30 minutes late.
If, in the opinion of photographer, inclement weather or other adverse conditions prevent the photo session, the photographer may elect to use an alternative location or reschedule the session at no additional cost to the client.
