Commissioned Information

COMMISSIONED PORTRAITS I am typically booked 6-8 weeks out, the sooner you call to schedule your experience the sooner I can get you in. Portrait sessions are by reservation. Sessions start at $900, visit my website for more information. To reserve your date and time for a commissioned portrait session a retainer of $300 is due at the time of booking and is non refundable. It will be applied to the purchase of the shoot. Balance is due 14 days prior to your session date.

YOUR PORTRAIT EXPERIENCE Having a fine art commissioned portrait created, is not just about the art, it is also about the experience. Once you’ve booked your session we will go over clothing options, hair and make up as well as underwater modeling. We can meet at my studio or talk on the phone. Together we will create a piece that you will cherish.

WHAT TO WEAR - I love a fashion flair and have a variety of gowns, materials and jewelry that you are welcome to use for the shoot. You can also bring your own. When you book your session we will go over clothing ideas. Options available for rental dresses too!

MAKEUP - If you would like to have professionally make up done for your portrait session, it can be arranged. I work closely with amazing make up artists that are aware of how to create a look for underwater portraits. You can also do your own make up and I can give you pointers if needed. Not all clients use make up it depends on the look you are going for.

STUDIO POLICIES - Rescheduling must be done 48 hours prior to your scheduled session or you will loose the retainer fee.

AFTER YOUR SHOOT Your gallery of images will be available for viewing within 2-4 weeks of your shoot. This is when you choose your favorite images, the ones that speak to you, represent you the best. I will also send you one of my favorite images completely designed for you to view. After your selections are made, I will create two pieces from your choices, a one of a kind, fine art image ready for printing.

All retouching and creative edits are done by me in my creative style. That said I work with you on a color palette and design style prior to designing. I love knowing which style of my art you are in love with so that I work in that direction.

The first three images designed are complimentary designs, the one I send you and the two from the images you select, you are not obligated to purchase these images. Additional designs are $100 each design and can be applied to the purchase of the image. Once images are selected we will then go over sizes, grouping and print choices as well as framing that will look impeccable in your home. Turn around time for your portriats is 4-6 weeks from the date of your order. To ensure a fast turn around time, all orders are final and are processed when ordered.

DIGITAL FILES As a gift to you for your purchase from the “Signature Fine Art Collection” I give you the digital files to the prints that you order. This way you can share them on social media and with friends and family. Digital files will become lost between generations. Having a print mounted for your home will live forever!

Don’t let your photos grow up to be jpg’s!
