Your session fee includes our time together capturing your images, hand-editing of all your images, and beautiful high-resolution images delivered to you.   The total number of images included with your session varies by session type; see below for full details.

My artistic process after your photo session is to cull and individually hand-edit all of your images in my digital darkroom. This represents the bulk of my time spent on your images–the photo session itself is really just the very beginning.  I carefully choose the loveliest images from your session.  I do not simply provide a gallery of unedited “proofs” for you to select from; I spend hours carefully editing each image in your gallery.  No guesswork about how I will edit the images you choose–what you see is the result of my complete artistic process.

Payment for your session is due at time of session.  This includes session fee in full and/or package fees in full.  Any additional images, prints or editing services after your session must be paid before delivery of add-ons.

A minimum deposit of $75 is required to reserve your session appointment time, with the balance due in full at time of session.   Deposits are non-refundable.  You may pay your deposit securely online using the button below if you wish – Heather will contact you within 24 hours to confirm the date and time of your session.  A fee of $2.55 applies to online payments.

HEADSHOTS

The focus of a headshot session is to shoot images that meet the specific needs of a model, dancer, performer or artist in the industry.  Headshot sessions are also appropriate for corporate needs, authors, and other professionals.  Need headshots for a group of people?  Contact us for a custom quote.  Please note: dancers/performers wanting to capture action shots should schedule a separate dancer session.

DANCER

Sessions with dancers include capturing unique artistic images for your personal dance portfolio, and can include images required for certain auditions.  During dancer sessions, a producer is on set to help with body placement, hair adjustments, wardrobe, makeup touch-ups (with your own makeup), location issues and anything else required to help the photographer realize the vision for the shoot and to help the dancer look his/her best.

Due to the nature of dancer sessions, we typically will not have enough time to shoot headshots during the same session–please schedule a separate headshot session.

Starting at $250.00— please email for a custom quote
• you select 5 high-resolution digital images
• producer on set
• print release provided
• starting at 45 minutes

 

DANCER – AUDITION PACKAGE

Have an audition coming up?  Let us help you capture beautiful images to present your best self at your next audition.  Most dance Summer Intensive programs, for example, will require you to bring a headshot and first position arabesque photo–at a minimum–to the audition.  Stand out from the crowd and skip the low-resolution cell phone images and unflattering studio lighting and let us create something beautiful for you.  Our audition packages are outdoor shoots combining a traditional audition photo approach with the beauty of natural light photography.

$225
• one headshot
• two static poses: first position arabesque or other static pose, such as second position échappé
• one jump
• print release provided
• starting at 45 minutes

 

ON-SET PRODUCER

Certain photo shoots require the extra hands-on attention of an on-set producer.  A producer pre-arranges locations and styling as needed, provides makeup touch-ups (with your own makeup), adjusts wardrobe, and generally assists the photographer to realize the vision for the shoot and help clients look and feel their best.

This option is available as an add-on for any session.

Starting at $50.00

 

MAKE-UP ARTIST

Complete makeup applications will be available as an option soon — (there is no additional fee for the on-set producer to ‘freshen you up’ if you bring your own make-up).
