About the Process: So, you’re probably wondering how it takes us a whole hour to get only 15-20 final photographs. Do we just show up, take 20 pictures in 15 minutes, then hang out for the remaining 45? NO. For a typical family portrait photo shoot, we spend the entire hour taking photos of you and your loved ones. For a shoot like this we’ll end up taking anywhere from 100-150 photographs. Why so many? Well…people blink, children cry, folks make funny faces, dogs don’t stay, cousin Tommy has to use the rest room – you get the point. We then narrow down the photos to the best 25 to 40 and we provide you with an initial proofing gallery from which you can choose your favorite 20 photographs. Depending on how difficult the lighting and shooting situation is, in a worst case scenario — we may only end up with 15 to 20 great images. Lastly, we will apply artistic post processing magic to the photos to adjust them for color, contrast, cropping and blemishes. This is when we also create your Black and White or Sepia images if that was your preference. We will deliver these wonderful, beautifully processed, finished images for you to download online in full resolution and/or burn them on a CD and mail them to you.

?What if we end up with more than 20 good photos and you’d like to choose more? Easy — Should you wish to have more than the 20 photographs included in this package the fee is $35 per additional image, or $300 for an additional package of 10 images. Why do we charge this extra fee? Because it takes us extra time and work to process additional photos!
