I can't wait to bring your creative vision to life! I promise your photos will stand out! I believe in quality over quantity, so you will select the images I edit as I spend 2-3+ hours on each of your images, ensuring your photos are edited to the highest perfection. Raw/Original Images are not included. All my pricing packages, frequently asked questions and online booking are below. I recommend booking 3 - 3.5 weeks before your desired post date. Once photos have been taken, proofs will be emailed within 3 business days. Remember, once favorites have been chosen, edits will be emailed within 3 weeks of confirmed favorites selection. Please notify the photographer of any deadlines before the shoot. If you need your images earlier, you can request them with additional fees. See add-ons below.
A 50% nonrefundable session retainer is required to book and hold your session's desired date and time. This retainer protects from no-shows and last-minute cancellations. The retainer is deducted from the session and can be credited towards 1 future session as long as it's rescheduled within 72 hours prior to your shoot. All remaining balances are due during the session, and you will receive images once paid in full.
Your date will not be put on the calendar until retainer has been received
Total session time includes any prep the client may need to do, such as background staging, walking, driving, hair, makeup, and outfit changes. Late arrivals will result in shorter sessions. More time can be added for extra backdrops, multiple concepts, and locations, but it is not guaranteed the day of. Be sure to factor in additional time between your appointments to ensure no scheduling conflicts.
Sessions with multiple locations and areas outside of Kansas City Limits need to be addressed to the photographer prior to booking, as travel expenses and/or additional time may be required. The photographer does travel to other states.

IMAGE PROCESSING, RETOUCHING, AND EDITS
You will select the images I edit based on your selected package. Any additional edits must be purchased before the photographer will start editing. The photographer will only deliver the high-resolution, retouched, edited, and JPEG images to the client and will not send unedited original "RAW" files under any circumstance unless purchased separately. The photographer spends 2-3+ hours on each image, ensuring selected favorites are edited to the highest perfection. Photographer professionally edits and retouches face, body, background, contrast, lighting, color, distracting objects, and cropping.
-I highly recommend hiring a professional to do your hair and makeup to ensure the highest quality photos. Please be sure to try on your clothing before the shoot to make sure it fits correctly. Please refrain from relying on the photographer (photoshop editing) to correct your hair, makeup, and clothing. The lack of quality within your prep can not guarantee high-quality results within the retouching process. Please ask for my preferred list if you need a good stylist, makeup artist, or hair artist.
Additional retouching fees will be required for poor wig installs. Your lace must be good quality and blended correctly, or you will be charged extra or left as is. (Up to $12/Image depending on severity) Unfortunately, it's not easy to fix in Photoshop, which adds multiple hours of editing to correct it.
SESSION RULES & LATE POLICY
-Please be on time and arrive no more than 15 minutes early
The session will start at your scheduled time. If you are late, it will still end at your scheduled time.
-If you are 30 minutes late, and no effort has been made to contact the photographer, your session will be automatically canceled. Your retainer will act as your cancelation fee, and a new retainer will be required to book in the future.
-If the session exceeds your scheduled time, you will be charged for each 1/2 hour. ($50)

Should you need to reschedule, 72 hours' notice is required. One event of rescheduling is allowed, but please give as much notice as possible. Please do not reschedule for minor skin injuries or blemishes. If the weather is torrential and we cannot shoot, the session will be rescheduled or shot in a studio. Clouds, light wind, and light sprinkles aren't a problem, and I usually go ahead with the session.
