Family portraits on the beach are a specialty, but there are lots of other locations in the area as well as the studio. I will also travel for portraits and have ventured to D.C. and the Philadelphia region for families.

Base portrait sessions start at $300 (additional charges for groups with more than eight people) with all edited images going in an online proofing gallery for viewing and ordering. These images are EDITED for color, exposure, and cropping but not fully retouched ("Photoshopped"). I usually say they are 95% ready for prints but we put the finishing touch on them in Photoshop for print orders through the website. This takes care of skin blemishes, flyaway hair as best as possible, teeth whitening, and that sort of thing.

Additional options to add:

Digital file packages-

Package A: Four (4) fully retouched digital files- add $200.

Package B: Six (6) fully retouched digital files AND all the remaining files from the proofing gallery- add $600.

Package C: Eight (8) fully retouched digital files AND all remaining files from the proofing gallery- add $900

Note: you can also purchase the digital files from the gallery individually for $50 ($40 if adding them to one of the above packages) or the entire gallery for $500.

NOTE: EDITING is adjusting exposure, cropping, color adjustments and RETOUCHING can include cleaning up the image by removing blemishes, slightly smoothing skin, whitening teeth, fixing flyaway hair, and removing distracting elements from the background. Extensive retouching such as compositing images together so everyone is looking at the camera, extensive slimming, removing several people from a background, etc. may incur an additional charge.
