PORTRAIT SESSIONS LOCATION & TRAVEL FEES
Studio and On Location sessions are available. Sessions begin at $35 depending on location (see Schedule to the left), distance traveled and length of session. A $20 location fee is charged for locations within a 10 mile radius of the city of South Boston, VA. Over 10 miles requires a $35 minimum includes up to 30 minutes driving time. Over 30 minutes requires an additional $40 per hour travel fee plus hotel accommodations when applicable.
Simplify and unify when it comes to clothing. Solids work best because it helps you be the focus of the portrait rather than what you are wearing. Couples or groups should wear matching or complimentary colors. Avoid stripes and other bold prints. Ladies should remember to bring their cosmetics in case a touch-up is needed.
A haircut 7—10 days before the portrait renders the most pleasing results for males.
Bring a prop to be photographed with you if you like. Anything that helps tell your story— sports equipment, musical instruments, favorite toys, or a pet (please check with the photographer before bringing pets).
We prefer for you to view the images after we have had an opportunity to sort, rotate, and crop them. Approximately one to two weeks after your portrait session you may return (on appointment basis) to view your images. You will be viewing them in a comfortable setting in our viewing room on a 55” high definition viewing screen, complete with background music. You may bring a friend or family member along if you like. This is an important time to make decisions regarding your selections.
PROOFS (If you just can’t decide and want more time…)
With the increasing technology available to consumers for photo reproduction, the photography industry is moving away from providing the traditional proof packages of the past. Instead of receiving a stack of 4x5 proofs, your images can be placed online for you and your loved ones to view. All sessions placed online are password protected unless you instruct otherwise. If you absolutely need images printed out we will provide you a contact sheet which only includes small wallet size images. If you do not have high speed internet, you can request a CD of the images to preview at your convenience (low resolution).
