portrait pricing and information


After the initial meeting, I enjoy talking with the client about ideas for poses, expressions and approaches. At this stage of the portrait process, a non-refundable engagement fee of $250 will be due. This fee will be applied to the final portrait fee when the portrait is completed. I will set up a photography session at a location of the client's choice and will provide the client with 3-5 of the best possible poses/expressions to choose from.

After a pose has been approved by the client for the portrait, a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the balance is due. Once the portrait is completed, there will be a final viewing or I will send the client an electronic image for either approval or the possibility of minor changes. The balance is due on final approval and delivery of the portrait.
