Portrait Services...

We realize how important it is for you to capture memories of your loved ones. As a natural light portrait photographer, all our sessions are only available for outdoor locations.  The session is scheduled during golden hour, which is one hour before sunset. This provides the most optimal lighting to capture portraits you will love. If shooting at other times of the day, we will use a flash for fill light only but all locations still have to be outdoors. 

Booking and Delivery Process... a  portrait booking is not confirmed until Steps 1-3 have been completed. Please keep in mind when scheduling your shoot the delivery process will take approximately 2-4 weeks from the session date. 

  1. Booking Form - submit a booking request form. We will reply within one business day regarding availability and if additional details are needed.
  2. Booking Agreement - you will then receive a booking agreement to sign electronically acknowledging our terms, model release, and invoicing.
  3. Session Deposit - once a session time is agreed upon and you have received your booking agreement, you will use this link to pay the $100 session deposit via credit card, Pay Pal, or Apple Pay. The session deposit is nonrefundable and will be applied to your session balance. This deposit may be transferred to a different date or time if you need to reschedule and at least a 24-hour written notice is provided (up to two times). After rescheduling, more than two times the deposit is forfeited and a new booking deposit will be required. The session deposit will be forfeited if cancelling.  
  4. Session Balance - all session balances are due by the start of your session. The session will not begin unless the session balance has been paid. 
  5. Image Options - unless noted differently on the booking agreement, the image options will be delivered to the client within 5 business days via an online gallery. These sample images are watermarked and are solely for selection purposes. 
  6. Image Selections - you will then  have up to 10 business days to select the images to use from the samples provided. Email us to notify once your final selections have been made. You may select more images then your package allows for at $20 per image. Payment for the additional images will need to be made before we will begin editing those images.
  7. Image Digital Delivery - the final images will be delivered in approximately 10 business days once we have been notified of your selections. Internet access is required to receive your images, as all final images will be downloaded from an online password protected gallery. You will have a print release with all orders to print as many images as you want in any sizes for your friends at family from your preferred print lab. For your convenience, you will also be able to order prints directly from the gallery from a professional lab if you choose to do so.

portrait photography PACKAGES (outdoor locations only)

All portrait packages below include the session time, print release, digital images, professional editing, and standard retouching. Standard retouching includes reduction of clothing lint, blemishes, scratches, stray hairs, teeth color, etc. Our services do not include advanced retouching (hair changes, wrinkle reduction, skin smoothing, body/face slimming, removal of braces, face/body swaps); so please do not request this when selecting images. Sales tax of 7% will be added to all invoices, as required by Hays County. For shoots on location, the session start time is when we first meet and end time is when we part ways. So if you are wanting outdoor portraits in different locations be sure to factor in travel time and parking at each spot. It is up to the client to provide their own transportation to/from the various locations, as we will travel separately. Travel fees will apply for areas outside Driftwood/South Austin. If you are looking for a longer session, but don't need additional images you can add time to the packages below at a rate of $50 per half hour.
