I've got a few pricing options for you to choose from. You can take a look at my session fee and my returning client discount below.
ONE LOOK SESSION
Sometimes you just need one really great image. We will shoot for up to 30 minutes and get the perfect headshot that represents you and your brand. One retouched image is included as well as all the best low resolution unedited images from the session for $150.
RAPID FIRE SESSION
Clients who would like to come in for a hour of shooting in the studio with unlimited changes within that time can do so by booking my rapid-fire session. We'll get amazing results in just an hour and the cost is $300. 3 retouched images are included as well as all the best low resolution unedited images from the session.
This session lasts up to 2 hours once you’re in front of my camera and includes studio looks as well as outdoor looks if requested and includes unlimited changes within that time. 4 retouched images are included as well as all the best low resolution, unedited images from the session for $400.
Once you've shot with me the first time you become eligible to take advantage of my discounted returning client session. Should you decide to work with me another time, you will never have to pay full price for headshots again. All returning clients can take advantage of my Rapid-Fire Headshot Session for the discounted rate of $200.
This applies to anyone that has ever shot with me in the past including those who weren't aware that I had this package available at the time of their previous session. The session is 1 hour of shooting and is designed to revamp your shots any time you feel you need an update. The cost of women's hair/makeup for the returning client session is $100.
Should a returning client want to add an extra hour to make it a 2 hour session the cost is $300.
For kids 16 and under I offer my rapid-fire session for $200.00 If the girls would like make up it’s the same as described above.
RETOUCHING AND PRINTING
Before you leave the studio the approved shots will be made available on your own password protected proofing website on www.pixieset.com. You will be able to give the pass code to friends, family, agents or anyone else who might help you choose the shots you decide to use. You can also share the images through social media via the links you’ll see next to each image in your gallery. The site is a perfect tool for choosing your shots and remains online for a minimum of 2 weeks from your shoot date. If you are using the site and would like it to remain online longer then just ask and we’d be happy to keep it active for you.
Extra retouched images in addition to the retouched images provided with your session are $25 a piece.
For quality control purposes I prefer all of my work to be handled by my retouch-er and I don't release unedited high resolution images directly to my clients unless you elect to purchase a full buyout of your entire session for $300. Should you choose this option, you would still be able to work with my retouch-er if you like or you are free to take the images to a lab of your choice.
HAIR & MAKEUP
Hair/Makeup for the session is highly recommended for all women.
My hair/makeup artist is $150 for hair/makeup for the Standard Session. For our Rapid-Fire Session he charges $100 for hair/makeup.
We do this on a daily basis and the makeup is applied specifically for the lighting I use. We start very naturally to give you a very clean look and will add a touch of makeup in the middle of the shoot if you prefer a darker look as well. If you’d like to start a with a tad bit more than a natural look that’s fine too, just let the makeup artist know. They are there for you throughout the session in order to make sure the makeup is fresh and can attend to anything that needs adjustment while I’m shooting. If you opt for an extra hour of shooting there will be an additional $50 for the makeup artist to stay for that time.
We ask that everyone come in with their hair ready the way you would like to present yourself. We want your hair in your pictures to be as close as possible to the way you look on a good hair day. You are really in charge here because hair is such a personal thing and we want you to feel like yourself, so please feel free to guide us in how you'd like it to look.
It's not required and I usually don't recommend makeup on men, but you can hire a hair/makeup artist if you feel you need grooming on the shoot for $100. Also, for the guys who grow decent scruff or feel you might want some shots with some facial hair, you can come in with a some growth and we'll shoot until we feel we've gotten it covered and then you can shave, so bring your razor, etc.
SCHEDULING & WAITING LIST
I shoot up to four sessions per day Monday through Friday and we generally begin the sessions around 8 am. I do tweak the times depending upon the schedule each particular day, so I do ask people to be a bit flexible. When I'm shooting women, be aware that the sessions do overlap to allow for makeup. Women are in makeup for an hour or so. I'm usually just finishing my first session while my makeup artist is doing makeup for our next client. Make sure you don't have anything else scheduled close to the end of your session in case I feel we need more time with you.
In order to get the session you prefer I suggest you book at least 2 weeks in advance. If you need to get in ASAP then just contact me about the schedule. I do try to accommodate everyone and you can always be put on our waiting list. As openings arise we contact people in the order they were placed on that list.
If for any reason you need to change a scheduled session, I require 72 hours notice, otherwise you forfeit your deposit. However, if we are able to fill your slot with another client within the 72 hour period then we would credit your deposit towards your rescheduled session.
ON LOCATION FEE
If you'd like me to come to you and shoot at a location of your choice I charge a $150 location fee.
If you end up choosing me as your photographer then you are in agreement that it's your responsibility to convey to me anything that you feel needs improvement over the course of the session. I want nothing more than having you totally satisfied with the outcome and things are fairly easy to adjust during the session. However, once the session is over then it's your responsibility to work with the images that we decided to keep. I'm a big deleter and want your shoot saturated with amazing shots, so I have no problem deleting shots during the editing process in order to only keep the best of the best.
I do feel that I have an incredible eye, however, I have no control of how others (agent, publicist, spouse, friends, etc.) will react to your session after you leave my studio. If, for any reason, something causes you to doubt the marketability of any part of your session and you would like to add another look or two, I charge a $200 fee for another hour of shooting. Anything that you feel could be improved upon should've been discussed during your session in order to avoid having to come back for the additional hour, so I need to charge for my time for this service. This offer is only available for 30 days from your original session and after that you are free to update at any time by doing my discounted returning client session! (see pricing above)
A non-refundable deposit of $200.00 is required to book a standard session, $150.00 is required for a rapid-fire session and $100.00 is required for a returning client or kids session. It is due at your convenience after you've chosen a shoot date and gotten it booked on my schedule. However, if it is not received at least one week prior to your scheduled session, the session will be granted to someone on my waiting list, so get your deposits to us as soon as you can.
I accept cash, Visa, Mastercard and American Express. The remaining balance including hair and makeup fee is due the day of the session.
