Makeup Artist

*** Highly Recommended!
The use of a professional makeup artist can greatly enhance the resulting portrait or headshot.   A makeup artist is worth considering if you need to be looking your very best for the photographs.  I can arrange a makeup artist for your studio session or on location. 
Weekend / Holiday Fee

I book all of my photography during the week.  Though I am generally not available on weekends or holidays, I realize sometimes that is the only opportunity that you may have available to you.  Depending on the specific date, I can sometimes make an exception, as my schedule and other obligations allow.   A higher session fee applies for a weekend or holiday session, depending on the date.  Inquire for more details.

Nonrefundable Booking Fee (Required to Confirm Booking)

A nonrefundable Booking Fee is required in order to book a session.  Your Booking Fee is basically a pre-payment of part or all of your Session Fee and will be applied toward your payment of your Session Fee.  For non-commercial photography, the amount of the Booking Fee depends on the estimated length of the Session. For photo sessions involving travel outside of the Austin area, a higher Booking Fee is required, and must be paid at least 2 weeks in advance.  ** If there is a separate Venue Fee, it will be added to the Booking Fee amount.  Also if the session is scheduled as RUSH session, any added fees are applied to the Booking Fee.

Non-Commercial Photography - Approximate Session Length Booking Fee
1 Hour Sessions $120
2 or 3 Hour Sessions $240
Full Day Sessions $500
RUSH Session $240
Add Venue Fees Add when applicable
Location Sessions (not at studio) $240
After Hours, Weekend, or Holiday Sessions (or near Holidays) Inquire
Commercial Photography - Based on Session Estimate 50% of Estimate
Event Photography 50% of Estimate

*** Until payment for the Booking Fee is received, no session is considered "confirmed".

Cancellation / Rescheduling

VERY IMPORTANT:   If you need to cancel or reschedule, please read our information about Cancellation / Rescheduling   Rescheduling a session should be done more than 24 hours prior to the session to avoid forfeiting your Booking Fee paid!

Turnaround Time

After your session, the proofs are usually made available within about a week (sometimes less, depending on how busy we are).   Then you may review the proofs by either viewing them online, or you may book a time to come by the studio to view them.   If you place your order within two weeks after viewing the proofs, you may take advantage of various special discount packages we offer.  After that, our Standard A La Carte Pricing applies.

Once you have made your selection, and place your order, you will be provided an invoice for the total amount due.  Upon receipt of payment, we will work on fulfilling your order.  

Order fulfillment turnaround time really depends on various factors.  Our number one priority is to provide high quality images and prints.  Typically, orders are fulfilled within about two weeks.  If you order canvas prints, it may take about three weeks.  These times can vary, just depending on the time of year and how busy we are, but we really try to not have you wait more than three weeks for any order!   (We know you're anxious to see your beautiful photographs!)   

If you need work done ASAP, we can sometimes accommodate.  Read about RUSH service.
