What Photography Plans Are Available?
Individuals, models and actors, corporate and executive headshot, and family (child) portrait plans are available, as is a commercial architecture plan. Additional plan links are available under Galleries, Plans, and Rate menus.
Portrait and Headshot Photography Plans
There are three basic categories of Portrait and Headshot Photography Plans – the Mini Session, the Consolidated Portrait Pricing Plan (CPPP), and a Fine Art plan. Mini sessions are only available to corporations and small businesses. There is a group plan for more than 12 people and an individual plan for select new hires available at the in-house Lombard, IL studio. Mini sessions do not include retouching. They do include one digital file that can be supplemented with retouching off the a la carte menu.
Benefits of the Consolidated Portrait Pricing Plan (CPPP)
The Consolidated Portrait Pricing Plan is for individual clients – models, actors, executives, linkedin users, social media users needing blog images, job seekers, seniors, children, graduates, teens and tweens, etc. The CPPP includes up to 2 hours of retouching and up to 2 hours of session time. This CPP plan works really well if you are not sure you want more than one image and would like the flexibility of capturing different looks on different backgrounds … perhaps formal look and a casual look. Even different lighting is available. Be sure to discuss options and backgrounds you would like during your consultation call. Each session is custom and setup for the individual per discussions ahead of time.
Do I need Retouching?
Are you a corporation considering the mini plan? Not sure you need retouching? In the retouching GIF above, a great deal of retouching is used to illustrate the potential difference between an out of the camera image shot in RAW and one retouched. Not all images need to be retouched to this degree. Check out the images in the portrait gallery to see real world examples of final products. You can also visit the mini plan page to see examples of final products.
Photo Shoot Scheduling Tips
Typically sessions must be booked at least a few days in advance (3+). Scheduling requirements (phone consultation, full contact information, plan choice, backdrop and lighting choice, booking fee, setup requirements, etc.) must be completed and processed at least 48 hours prior to a photoshoot.
Rescheduling / Cancellations
Booking fees apply to the total amount due with one exception – you must provide a minimum of 48 hours (business days) notice of any rescheduling needs or cancellation, in order to receive a refund of your booking fee / to reapply your booking fee to your new photo shoot date.
Scheduling on Short Notice / Fast Image Delivery
For those occasions when you must have an image on short notice (i.e. less than 48 hours prior to a scheduled date), this can typically be accommodated. However, please note there is an additional $100 fee applied to the total amount due.
Holiday Photo Shoots
If images must be processed over a holiday weekend, there is a $100 holiday processing fee added to the total amount due.
